Share the Love Etsy Giveaway!

Share the Love Etsy Giveaway!

Welcome to the latest giveaway from Top Shops of Etsy.  A big thank you to all of our sponsors for donating their wonderful items for this giveaway!

This giveaway is open to everyone!  The giveaway is open now and closes on 10/12/12.  Enter to win one of four great prizes below!


1.  Hair Flower from Clara's Creations
They each are 3 - 3 1/2 inches in diameter with a button for the center!
You can wear it in your hair or as a brooch!
Attached to the back is a a brooch pin and a hair clip.
A simple flower for any occasion!

2.  ANY one item from the Bless Hue Etsy Shop ($15-$70 value!)
Bless Hue sells Giclee prints and postcards of hand-torn newspaper collage arts created by Keiko Suzuki. All colors of the original collages are fully from color pages of newspapers. For more about the collage making process, please visit

3.  Skinny Knitted Scarf in Vanilla Sparkly Tinsel by Twisted Knits by Suze
Lovingly handcrafted, the Skinny Knitted Scarf in Vanilla Sparkly Tinsel. This skinny scarf has been knitted with two strands of novelty fuzzy tinsel and bambino pompom yarn and two strands of 12 ply / worsted weight together on largish needles, making for a warm, soft yet quite light scarf. The novelty yarn consists of clear soft tinsel which sparkles with silver/white light, and ivory bambino pompoms. I don't find the tinsel fuzzy material to be itchy at all on my skin.
As is the style at the moment, the scarf is knitted in a "skinny" fashion - only 8 cms / 3.25 inches across and is rather long at 160 cms / 63 inches. Being classic, neutral vanilla, this gorgeous and eye-catching yet understated scarf can be paired with any outfit, casual or dressy, and can be worn in many ways so it can really take you through a range of seasons. For example, in one of my pictures the scarf is wrapped round the neck cowl-style: this would make it perfect for winter or those cooler days/nights. On the other hand, you could simply drape it over the shoulders for when its not so chilly but you still want the warmth option available.
This glamorous scarf would make a fantastic gift (it comes gift wrapped) or as a present to yourself - don't you deserve something a bit special? If you like pretty, shiny, sparkly things, this is the scarf for you!

4.  Set of Four Mickey Mouse Coasters from Tampa Bay Crochet
Handmade set of four Mickey Mouse inspired crochet coasters. These fun coasters make a perfect gift for any Disney fan.
Very easy to care for, just hand wash and lay flat to dry.
Coasters measure approximately 3.5" wide at the base and 6" wide at the ears.

Fabulous Fall Hats

These fabulous fall Hats are all handmade. They are bound to be the talk of the town and great for any photo opportunity. They are a great gift idea for a baby shower, birthday or just a little something special for that little special someone in your life. 
They are made with 2 layers of high quality soft fleece, I use bright colored quality fabrics and bits of up-cycled sweaters, jackets, pants or anything I can get my hands on. These hats are a great way to keep them warm and looking great all season long. You can dress them up for Thanksgiving Dinner or snug them up to go to the pumpkin patch or just have fun Trick or Treating.

Featured Shop: The Enchanted Lily

Featured Shop:  The Enchanted Lily

Shop Name:  The Enchanted Lily


Items I have in my shop vary greatly.  There is handmade jewelry.  Sometimes I purchase beads/finding/etc. and create a piece, sometimes I see a piece of jewelry in a store, purchase it, take it home and take it apart, and create an entirely different piece.  A lot of the jewelry is made of semi-precious stones, and/or Swarvoski crystals.
I also sell vintage jewelry that I find at Estate Sales and Antique Stores.
I take new Fashion Scarves and add embellishments, such as beading, removable scarf rings (that I make), to make them unique.
For the Equine Lover, I take new saddle pads and hand bead designs on them for a fun look when you are riding your horse.
I love photography and have just started listing photography prints on my site.  My prints will be able in a number of ways from a 5x7 print to prints on canvas or wood or as posters.
I also make home decor items, I take everyday items such as votive holders, baskets, picture frames, etc. and add creative touches such as ribbon, sparkle, or whatever it takes to make them unique.
I love finding vintage items at Estate Sales, Antique Shops, etc. to offer to customers.  I try to only get pieces that are in excellent condition and very different.  I love the vintage evening bags that I have for sale.  I do find some items that need to be refinished that I post "as is"  they get  a lot of attention.  I do some of the items in the "shabby chic" style.
I love to do a variety of crafts, always starting something new.  I am in the process of creating American Flags from pieces of metal that I paint and they will be able to be hung outdoors on your house/barn.  Some are quite large.  I hope to have the first one finished within the next month.
I am also going to be getting a sewing machine and will soon be able to custom make quilt tops for people, made of special items such as a loved one's shirts, etc.  I will also be sewing baby quilts.
On my FB page I will be starting to sell upscale resale, mainly formal dresses, shoes, evening bags, and some cocktail dresses.  Since these items are not handmade or vintage, I will not be able to put them on Etsy.

Specials: Every item I sell, helps a charity.  I send a donation, which is a percentage of each sale to the charity listed in the item's description.  Right now I am concentrating on five different charities.  They are: 

The Cherokee Nation's "Little Red Schoolhouse" which helps Native American Indians -
Save The Whales Foundation -
Breast Cancer Research -
American Horse Defense Fund, which helps save America's Wild Horses -
Asante Mariamu, which helps children in East Africa that have Albinism.
For my patriotic items, I will be listing a charity that will help senior citizen veterans.  (I am still trying to locate the charity.)

Description:  I love to create designs. The outcome of my project always thrills me when I have designed what I made up in my mind. :)  I am a graphic designer who was laid off from my job in November of 2011. It has been trying, but I have found enjoyment through designing what I want, and not just the typical work I use to do in a corporate setting. I also enjoy blogging, running, being a mom and wife, (which come first, of course :) ). 
Thanks for stopping by my shop.
