Now for the amazing Give Away!
Recently Novica, who happens to be associated with National Geographic, wrote me offering a generous gift.
You see they noticed that I have wonderful Blog Friends,
Yes that is YOU!
This is not something I usually do, but how could I refuse.
They gave me a gift certificate to order something and tell you about it.
I got my sister a gift- Shush, don't tell her!
Look how beautifully it arrived in a handmade gift box!
Handmade sterling silver earrings.
She will love them.
They arrived so fast I barely blinked and they were here.
From my experience this company is truly
helping artisans to share their arts with the world.
This in turn helps them to make a living and care for their families.
They also gave me a $75 gift certificate for ONE of you!
