Creative Canadian Handmade Products [#Giveaway], US/CAN, 10/01

Welcome to the Creative Canadian Handiwork giveaway hosted by Journeys of The Zoo.

This giveaway will showcase five Canadian Sponsors and their Handiwork including prizes totalling $100! To top it off, there will be not one but FIVE winners.

Five Times the Fun!


Little Sweetie Clips

1. Kari from Little Sweetie Clips.

My name is Kari and I’m a stay-at-home mom with two beautiful daughters and a wonderful husband who is my biggest fan and supporter!

My girls, Shayla and Kelsie are the inspiration behind Little Sweetie Clips. I started making hair pretties for Shayla as I found it hard to find cute hair accessories that would stay in the little amount of hair she had (neither daughter had any hair until their first birthday!). This became so much fun that I started selling them online and Little Sweetie Clips was born.

Everything I make, I make as if it were for my own daughter. We don’t just make products for babies, we have a range of items for girls of all ages, including wedding and grad hair pieces as well as maternity sashes. I’m always looking to try new things and experiment with different fabric or ribbon. I love making custom designs and can create something special for you for a specific event.

Prize: Kari is giving away a set of three (3) shabby chic flower headbands valued at $24 ($8 each headband)! Winner can choose colors (based upon availability).
Freebie: *Free shabby chic flower hair clip with every purchase! Enter the ‘secret code’: JourneysofTheZoo at checkout with your choice of color*


Shery K Designs, Shery from Shery K Designs.

My name is Shery K and I have been designing patterns for commercial use since 2002. In 2009, I moved to Canada with my Canadian husband (I’m from Egypt) and soon found my niche in scrapbooking design and paper crafting. After working with different design businesses my entrepreneurial spirit evolved and I started my own home-based business: “SHERY K DESIGNS”.

Prize: Shery is giving away three printable digital paper packs from her shop valued at up to $12!
Discount: For the duration of the contest, all purchases will receive a 40% discount (yes, 40%) with the coupon code JSZOODIC40OFF.


Worry Locket, GhostShip3. Kyra from GhostShip

GhostShip represents much more than an on-line jewelry store to me. It is my passion for life, nature and all things creative. The jewelry line is romantic and beautifully delicate, all lovingly hand crafted with care and attention to detail.

Since we all have worries, I created a Worry Locket line, which captures all of our worries and stores them into the silver filigree for safekeeping. The worry stones are semi-precious gemstones, representing each birthmonth, with specific healing properties. In ancient Greek times, worry beads were carried around to relieve stress and anxiety. The beads were often found objects and strung together to be lovingly counted in meditation. This modern day worry locket is filled with gorgeous nuggets of genuine peridot gemstones, strung on a long sterling silver chain. GhostShip also carries vintage seaglass and freshwater pearl treasures that will last forever.

Prize: Kyra is giving away a Beautiful Worry Locket with peridot gemstones valued at $29!
Note: Each week Kyra hosts a giveaway on her Facebook page. Liking her Facebook Page is a giveaway entry so be sure to do it to double your chances of winning!


Sober Julie Handmade Treasures4. Julie from HandMade Treasures.

This pendant is handmade with non-tarnish silver wire, hugging three precious “eggs”. Perfect for the Mom with three children. We can customize the number and color of “eggs” and wire type to suit your needs. Each piece is lovingly and uniquely made which means each piece may be slightly different than the picture but just as lovely.

Prize: Julie is giving away a Handmade Bird’s Nest Pendant valued at $20!

  4. How To Play Keyboard Pdf

    Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with
    experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
