Giving Flight, Giving Back.

I am ecstatic to share with you this amazing blog hop we are having.

{I created this necklace with this theme in mind… The pendant is a wing, prepared for flight. The chain includes the key to fly, I hope you soar!}

Giving Flight, Giving Back.

We are celebrating our one year anniversary. This group of incredible, giving, creative women have connected like fly sisters. We all signed up to take Kelly Rae Robert’s Flying Lessons Ecourse last summer. We became fast friends… My friend Linda, suggested that we do something to celebrate our anniversary. To celebrate becoming, possibilitarians, fly sisters, creative, connected, supportive, caring and most of all GIVING.

We are delighted to share that the group of women decided to show our gratitude by contributing to donate money for a giveaway… We intended on collecting enough money to give away a free spot in Kelly’s Flying Lesson’s ecourse. Kelly offered to match our donations dollar for dollar!

We had no idea that we would collect an amazing, incredible, dynamic amount of money (enough for 8 spots in the giveaway), and with the matching goodness of Kelly Rae, we are thrilled to announce that we are giving away 16 spots in her Flying Lesson’s Course! Isn’t that AMAZING???


Follow Your Dreams

So if you are starting a creative business, own a creative business and need a little nudge to take flight, this is the course for you! Believe in You and spread your wings!

You can find out more about the course on Kelly Rae’s site here.


We are doing a blog hop to celebrate our anniversary and announce the giveaway. You can only enter the giveaway in one location, and this site will be live tonight at midnight, central!
Believe in you and click here to enter the giveaway!


Flying Lessons was such a terrific asset to my business, despite the fact that I have a strong business background, there were certain areas that I needed to finesse… especially my social presence: I had a blog already, but I started consistently blogging and I now blog almost daily. I created a facebook page, I signed up for twitter. I cleaned up my etsy site (although I am not a very good etsy lister, I sell more jewelry through my blog and my occasional Private Virtual Sale emails (send me an email if you would like to be added to my list: and I have had a lot of fun on Pinterest.

My business has really taken off in the past year, I am so filled with gratitude. I have enjoyed selling wholesale to a great group of boutiques locally. In January I had a line of jewelry launch with Demdaco, and in June my jewelry line launched with Creative Co-op (both companies are nationwide and sell wholesale to the gift industry.)

I love to find out that you have spotted my jewelry in a retail store, so feel free to send me an email or let me know on my facebook page! It is such an amazing thrill!

GIVING BACK is important to me. Over the years, I have received so many gifts and I am a true believer in paying it forward. My jewelry has been such a great tool for giving back. I love to offer random giveaways occasionally to my readers, I donate my jewelry to special causes that touch my heart… I have friends who are doing amazing things in Haiti, you can find out about it here. I have donated to local silent auctions to raise money for schools, boys choir and hockey fundraisers. It always feels so good to give. This giveaway feels amazing, because it is less about the actual gift, but more about the amazing opportunity that is being given! I am so thankful to be a part of this giveaway!


I encourage you to hop along on our blog hop, leave some comment love for them because each one of these amazing peeps donated money to help deserving people become possibilitarians too! In fact, you may have so much fun hopping when you see the beautiful art they create, that you are going to like their facebook pages, subscribe to their blogs and become lifetime fans! The blog hop officially starts at midnight tonight.

Remember, if you know someone who might benefit from Flying lessons, we hope you recommend the giveaway!

I would like to introduce you to my flysisters:

  35. Heya! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new apple iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the great work!

  36. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  37. Hello would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!

  38. Generally I don’t read article on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and do it! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thank you, quite nice post.

  39. Thanks on your marvelous posting! I quite enjoyed reading it, you can be a great author. I will remember to bookmark your blog and will come back sometime soon. I want to encourage you to ultimately continue your great job, have a nice day!
