Your Favorite Colors - Fall 2012 Edition

To celebrate the coming of Fall, it’s time for another Your Favorite Colors design contest!
Here’s the deal. In the comments of this post, submit your favorite colorway. It can be a picture you like, a poem, another website or just a list of colors that you think would look pretty together. You can submit colorway ideas starting now, and ending on Friday, September 21, 2012. I will choose five colorways I like best, and I will make an electronic mock up of each colorway. I’ll then post them to the blog, and you guys will get to vote on your favorite until Saturday, October 13th at 5 pm EST. The top three colorways will win the following prizes from Whimsy Beading:

3rd Place: $15 gift certificate to the Whimsy Beading shop

2nd Place: $25 gift certificate to the Whimsy Beading shop

1st Place: 1 Whimsy Beading sterling silver crystal spiral necklace in the winning colorway.

Everyone who submits an entry also receives a special coupon code for 20% off their next purchase in the Whimsy Beading shop.

Now, here’s the catch - you can enter as many times as you like, but you will only receive one coupon code. Only one colorway per person will be selected for the mock-up and voting. Please keep your entries to one colorway per comment, otherwise, it’s a bit hard to sort through.

Good luck, and I can’t wait to see the beautiful things you guys will create.

Lysa's Morbid Stars

Whimsy Beading has teamed up with Lysa from The Morbid The Merrier to create some special edition star earrings in our new beaded star design.

Behold Lysa's Morbid Stars!

You can get your own pair right here in the Whimsy Beading Etsy Shop. They're limited edition, and once they're sold out, they're gone forever. Because of this, they cannot be purchased using coupons, discounts, or Whimsy Beading Christmas Cash. But at only $15 per pair, they're a steal!

While you're shopping for your next signature scent at TMTM, get your morbid on with these fantastic star earrings.

Random update thing

I will have a post coming soon about the Saga of the Balance and Brighten Foundation Amazing Adventure, but for now I'm working away on Christmas orders, and besides, I have to actually receive a Balance and Brighten Foundation in one piece to be able to try it out and tell you folks about it.

Until then, know that I am plotting new sparklies, including another one in honor of my all time favorite band (and long-held lead singer crush) XTC/Andy Partridge. Because I'm sure he'd love to know someone made jewelry in his honor. I can't help it, Mr. Partridge, really.

Yes, the extra "y" on the post title is deliberate, and a little hat tip to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The very savvy and awesome Grey has started a Birchbox style sample box program called the Indie Style Awesome Box. The mini box soft launch was this morning, limited to a total of 30 pre-launch mini boxes. They went on sale this morning at 8 am, PST and sold out in just under two hours.

I am really excited about the Awesome Box, and I hope you will be too. There are so many great companies contributing to the Awesome Box from bath and body, indie makeup, indie jewelry makers (and yes, that includes me) and other great sellers.

The first Awesome Box full box goes on sale in February. Mark your calendars and get your indie style on!

F- the malls...

...and shop some Indie! Falalalalalalala.

I think that's the right number of "lalala"s after the "Fa" there.

And I'll bet you think you know what the "F" is for up there in the title, right? Well, if you think it means "forget," you're right!

Seriously folks, shop indie and local this holiday season. You'll be able to choose unique, handmade, well made gifts that help support small businesses everywhere. Sure, it may not be a cheap waffle iron, but you won't need to pepper spray anybody to get that fabulous gift, either.

Shop indie, shop local, and *ahem* "f"(orget) the malls this year.
