Little Gems - Free Gift With Purchase!

Hi Everyone,

As the school year winds down, many of us are already jumping ahead to planning our summers. I know that my daughter and I are looking forward to spending some quality time hanging out at home together. We are also planning on taking a lot of pictures of the gorgeous new jewelry designs that I've been making lately. So stay tuned, there will be a lot of new eco-friendly jewels coming your way soon!

Tonight we stocked at our Lilypad Landing Store along with some of our favorite hand-crafting artisans.

I am also excited about a new Mothering Rocks Necklace design called 'Healthy Family'. I was contacted by Scott Baio of the Bailey Baio Angel Foundation to donate some jewelry to their auction on May 30. I was so moved by their story that I designed the 'Healthy Family' necklace to be able to continually donate to their good cause.

The press will be at the auction and hopefully Little Gems will get some additional coverage. Let me know if you see anything in the media about Little Gems!

I'd also like to offer you all a Free Gift this month with all orders, large and small. I will send you a Free GemEssence Aromatherapy Spray with your orders through May 31, 2009. Please specify in your order notes which GemEssence blend you'd like: Awaken, Sleep, or Soothe!

As usual, thank you for supporting small sustainable businesses!

Happy Mother's Day!
