Right now you can get 20% off all tutorials at using the coupon code holiday20.

Next up, one of my shops is going out of business. I'll be closing my Goddess Return shop so I can concentrate more on my other lines. That means that on top of 30% off holiday sale at you can use the coupon code 20off to get an extra 20% off of the listed prices.This coupon code can only be used at . This will be a permanent discount code that can be used at any time until the shop is closed. But if you use it now, on top of the 30% off sale, you'll be getting some really great deals!

And now for the giveaway!

I'm giving away a Copper and Blue Chalk Turquoise Necklace (shown below) this week on facebook. This is the last day to enter. See more details here:

Copper and Blue Chalk Turquoise GIVEAWAY by Gailavira

Just realized it's been almost a year since I updated this journal. ooops... I'm sorry.

Ok, now that the shameless self promotion is out of the way, how about another big heaping helping of.... shameless self promotion...

What have I been up to that I've forgotten to mention here? Well, most recently, my first video tutorial, Quick and Simple Twisted Wire Crystal Point Pendant.

Before that, I finally decided to give in to all the wonderful people who asked for a video of How to Put On Elf Ears, Ear Cuffs and Other Ear Wraps.

I think I'm having fun with the videos. I need to work on ways to make them even better, but I'll probably have more fun figuring it out.

Moving on along......

Archer's Weave Tutorial is Finally Ready! by Gailavira
I wrote the tutorial for my Archer's Weave Earrings, which you can find in my Etsy Shop.

I also put out two new freebie tutorials. Swirly Adjustable Ring and the Beaded Hoop Link Bracelet
 Free Swirly Adjustable Ring Tutorial by Gailavira New Free Tutorial - Beaded Hoop Link Bracelet by Gailavira

Both of which you can find on my blog.

I know there were other things I've done over the year, but for the life of me I just can't think of anything else worth mentioning. Here's hoping it's not another year til I get around to updating again. ;)
I finally finished another tutorial. This one is for the Coiled Swirls Donut Pendant that won in the poll I posted a while backl

You can get it on my web-site,
You can get it on Craftsy,…
Or you can get it Etsy,…
