Birthday Bash Giveaway #1

It only seems appropriate to start off our Birthday Bash with a cupcake. Jenn of One Star Designs was sweet enough (no pun intended) to make this necklace for our Birthday Bash Giveaways! Which leads me to one of the reasons I LOVE the Arts & Crafts community: caring. I think it is easy to forget how great we have it, working with vendors, shoppers, and event coordinators who genuinely care about our well being and success. Sure, there are times when you will meet someone who isn't all rainbows and sunshine... but that tends to be the exception rather than the rule. I feel confident in saying that our North Texas Arts & Crafts Community is one with a heart ten times the size of Texas. We support each other and we help each other out. And that truly makes all the difference.



Our first Birthday Bash Giveaway is brought to you by Jenn of One Star Designs. Jenn has been making jewelry for over 25 years and offers a variety of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets--as well as custom orders! One Star Designs particpates in craft shows all over the metroplex, and you can check out their Facebook Page to see where they will be next!





How to enter: Simply leave a comment (here or on Facebook) and tell us about one act of kindness that you have experienced from a vendor, shopper, or event coordinator. I bet you don't have to think too hard to come up with one. It can be as simple as someone offering to help you set-up your booth or load up your car. Someone who stops by to offer up a break because they can see that you need one. A vendor who includes a special gift with your purchase or works with you to help create that perfect gift. An event coordinator who sincerely cares about your experience at their event. The list goes on and on! (And yeah, I feel fortunate enough to be able to claim experience to all of the above!) Please don't forget to leave an email address, if I cannot contact you then you cannot collect your prize!

Contest ends at 10:00PM on Sunday, March 27th. Winners will be announced Monday, March 28th.

And the winner is... Christine! Congrats! You have won this gorgeous Cupcake Necklace made by One Star Designs specifically for the occasion, a $35 value. The necklace contains one handmade lampwork cupcake bead and swarovsky crystals, the perfect amount of bling for anyone with a sweet tooth!

Not the lucky winner? No worries! One Star Designs has tons of amazing designs in their Etsy shop just waiting for a new home. I'll even bet, if you asked nicely, they would whip up some more of these adorable cupcakes!

  1. I'm excited to be able to enter for a chance to win a piece from One Star Designs! Love Jenn's work. I receive so many acts of kindness from shoppers & vendors that it's hard to narrow it down to one! After the Funky Finds Spring Fling, Joe & I were overwhelmed by the number of kind comments left on Facebook & received via email from participants & shoppers who attended. It's so great to read the positive comments after an event that we spend months planning & promoting.

  2. Super Fabulous giveaway! At my FIRST ever vendor show, it took place outside and I was having a difficult time getting my "easy" tent set up and some early shoppers helped me out! They were so sweet they even help me set up the rest of my booth! I felt like I wanted to cry but they were all really sweet and told me not to worry and that everything was going to be alright and it was because of them!

  3. At Funky Finds, my first craft show, I met Marci (Marci's Crafty Corner). While she & I were talking, without me noticing my dog had climbed into her friends lap! They were both so understanding about my dogs forward behavior LOL Marci was so nice! I've been wanting to start selling my crafts & Marci really helped me feel like I could!

  5. I had set down my package to look at patterns and then bought one. The vendor chased me down and returned my package as she had watched me set it down then noticed I hadn't picked it up. I appreciated her thoughtfulness and honesty!
