Giveaway, Hooray!

Happy Fourth of July! In honor of the holiday, I wanted to try a little something new and do a giveaway!

I am having an "e-party" for my loyal customers during the next two weeks!! Start your summer off with a bang! Whether you shop our awesome “Summer Style for a Steal” sale or you fancy some of our new shimmering gold and pearl pieces that were just released, find the perfect pieces to compliment your summer wardrobe or amaze your friends with the best birthday gifts ever.

When you place an order, you will be entered to win the hostess rewards (free jewelry!) from this party. Hostess rewards are a % of the trunk show sales, which you can then spend on jewelry of your choice. Plus you’ll receive ½ price items as well!

And don’t forget to shop the new little girl's line, it is precious!!!

To participate in the giveaway, shop www.stelladot.com/stacyhawken between now and July 14th and choose “Sparkles Giveaway” as the trunk show hostess. Each person that shops the trunk show will receive an entry to win. Anyone who shops and then also books a trunk show* for July 2010 will receive a second entry to win (double your chances!).

Please feel free to forward this email or post this to your blogs, twitter or facebook accounts. The more the merrier, and the more rewards to be won!
Have a fun weekend!

*Trunk shows that have been previously booked will not be entered in this giveaway.

The paperwork is signed and the house is listed. Finally. I still have to take some interior shots for the realtor to upload and print fliers up, but we're almost there. I just have to clean up the house, again, and take some totally de-cluttered photos. You know, because my house is always so clean and de-cluttered. NOT! (And yes, I totally just brought "not" back...you're welcome.) I am just happy to be listed. This is progress people. Sure, we need a buyer, but baby steps, baby steps. So, know anyone that needs a great little house in Charlotte? It's a great deal! Or someone who would want to rent for a year or two? We'd be open to that. I am so ready to move back "home" to the RDU area. I gotta get back before Ben's future wife is born!

Join Me

Okay, I promise not to turn this blog into an all Stella & Dot site, all the time. However, summer is a big time for us, so I will be updating ya'll on specials and such. For those of you that hear the updates all the time from me, pardon the programming interruption - I will get back to grumbling again shortly!

If you ever have the need for extra money - be it just some fun cash for shopping or some serious cash that will afford you an entirely new lifestyle - joining Stella & Dot just become that much cooler! We have an amazing new stylist sign-up incentive for June, which allows you up to $950 in free jewelry. You will immediately receive $450 when you sign-up, and are eligible for an additional $500 when you launch yourself prior to July 10th and attend our HOOPLA event. I won't go into all the deets here, but if you've ever been interested in becoming a stylist NOW is the time. In fact, I'm super jealous that this special wasn't going on when I signed up in March. Super jealous!!

For me, I needed an outlet. I needed to feel like I was something more than just a mom. Staying at home with my son has been a privelege, but I missed working. I missed the excitement, the people, the money, and the sense of accomplishment when I hit my goals. Becoming a stylist has allowed me to earn extra income, put my brain to use again, and meet some great women. I've never been all joiner-joiny, but I really have loved the fellow stylists I have met through Stella & Dot. Joining is a decision I will never regret, especially since Stella & Dot allows you to make this career what you want - 1 party a month, 10 parties a month, or just join for the great stylist discount - it's your time, your career. It's nice to know that I can be a top-earner or I can just be a hobbyist and do what I can, when I can.  

So, if you'd be interested in learning more - or already know you want to become a stylist - shoot me a message and let's chat. Hey, I'll even be your sponsor, and you know how much fun I am!

So I am partnering with my friend the Preppy Pink Crocodile for a giveaway! She is giving away some awesome items that she normally sells on her Etsy Shop - things like onesies, bibs, coffee covers, etc. And I am giving away a pair of Stella & Dot earrings!
To enter the contest, you must first go to her blog site and read all about the rules and how you earn points. It's pretty easy, and you'll get a lot of great stuff! So head on over there and check it out (Giveaway#2 blog entry).

Other than that, I just wanted everyone to know about the really awesome Summer Sale that we have going on now. Some of the faves from Stella & Dot are now marked down 20 to 50 percent! I just ordered myself the Happy Flowers necklace for half-off and have been wearing it every day. I love it! So happy shopping and I hope you win the giveaway!
