What's shakin'??

Well as some of you may know already this has been quite an amazing week for me! First off I got accepted into the competitive RAWards event where I stand to win the title "Accessories Designer of the Year" and an amazing career building package including $$, gallery placement, insane media coverage and so much more. Voting for this has already begun and will last until October 9th. You can vote for me once a day until the time period is over. Just go here and click the "vote for this artist" button at the top! ;)

RAW artists also invited me back for their upcoming show entitled Encompass on October 17th! I had a blast at the Marvel show (last April) and look forward to working with these folks again. They are truly an amazing bunch! So excited! The catch of course is I have to raise enough money and/or sell enough tickets to participate in this wondrous event. I still have a few weeks left but I need all the help I can get! If you live in the Austin, TX area and would like to buy a ticket to the event please do so here by clicking "Buy a ticket from this artist" at the top center of the page.

I'm also running a promotion in my shop right now for 25% off ALL purchases until the day of the event in hopes of raising money for the event. Just use the coupon code "RAW2013" at checkout! As extra incentive I will also be including a FREE gift with every order placed over $15! I really hope to participate in this event as April's show was a HUGE success for me and helped get the word out about my shop/items in the Austin community and provided me with a bunch of free advertising among other things. I just added a bunch of new items to my shop as well getting me up to 100 items on etsy! A new record for me! Please stop by and check out all my new pretties and tell your friends about my unique creepy cute creations if you get the chance. :)

In other news this weekend is going to be crazy exciting as I am participating in TWO! team trading events along with a few BNRS. I'm hoping things don't get too out of hand and that I get a head start on my xmas shopping! ;)

So far I've created two wishlists for the event feel free to check 'em out if you are interested!
