DollybyDesign Accessory Love: Opaque Pink Tear Drop Earrings

New (color) of tear-drop earrings to my shop: Opaque Pink Tear Drop Earrings. These have been a huge success for my shop, so I wanted to add more colors as examples to show to my fans, shoppers and friends! I also state in my shop’s policies that if you are interested in placing a big order, let me know at least 4-5 weeks in advance so I can make a specific order to fit your wedding party, or your special event! I can do most popular colors to fit your wedding/special event as well, and I love doing personalized orders for brides-to-be!

{Specific details of the earrings include: size 10mmX15mm, gold brass setting, opaque pink (color), $12.50 (price per pair)}

Happy Shopping…and most importantly HAPPY FALL 2013!!!!!  DSC_7620

Dolly by Design FREE Giveaway!!!!!!!!!

Okay as you can see I haven’t posted anything in about two weeks, and that makes me very sad (and at the same time it makes me feel like I’ve been slacking at this whole blogging thing!) SHAME ON ME!

I hope you all can forgive my absence, I have been extremely busy with so many projects for Dolly by Design, my (VERY MUCH SIDE HOBBY) photography business Twelve16Photography, and other Nashville endeavors as well! Nonetheless, I don’t want to neglect sharing my thoughts about what is going on with Dolly by Design!

So I have been getting a ginormous (what I feel is ginormous) amount of orders for my TearDrop Earrings which I featured two weeks ago (modeled by the beautiful Kara Philpot). They have been private orders (not Etsy orders which explains why there haven’t been many postings on my Etsy page) and it’s been an overwhelming blessing to me! I constantly want to stop and thank GOD because HE constantly surprises me and blesses me with new opportunities to create for Dolly by Design!  It’s interesting because I made a conscience decision this time last year that I was going to embark on this fun and creative adventure, and I had to set realistic expectations for myself that, “Things may not even sell Dolly! So you need to do this more as a creative outlet and hobby, and if you sell things, you sell things! The important aspect of this outlet is for you to have fun and experience joy in creating things!” (Yes, I tend to talk to myself ALOT…and I think it’s because I was an only child growing up!)

But creating ‘part-time’ as a hobby (mental outlet) this past year has been a HUGE stress reliever for me, and it has brought me an abundant amount of joy because I literally feel like I’m glorifying GOD in using some of the talents He’s blessed me with! PLUS, I have been able to contribute more to my yearly India Mission Trip and church family (Ethos) because of this hobby! So thank you GOD for this outlet!

Okay, sorry I went on a huge tangent! I tend to get side tracked really easily-but now we are getting back to the focus of this post: a Dolly by Design FREE GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!

Because of my success in Tear Drop Earring Sales this month, I am going to give away a FREE PAIR of Dolly by Design Tear Drop Earrings (color TBA). Usually these earrings run $12.50 (+shipping) for a pair in my shop, but one lucky winner will win a fun and colorful pair (with free paid shipping) by the end of August! WOOT WOOT!!!!

“And may the odds be ever in your favor” (Okay, this was a little dramatic of a statement-cause obviously no one is going to die for these earrings- I realize that…but I really love the Hunger Games and I wanted to incorporate this quote ESP since I’m having my first giveaway!)

LOVE YOU ALL! GOD BLESS!!!!!!
