During this time of year, in my experience, the USPS can run a few days behind their normal delivery schedule. Therefore I can not guarentee delivery by 12/25 unless orders are shipped Express Mail. If you would like your purchase shipped Priority or Express please contact me prior to ordering for a rates.
Below are my recomendations for orders placed in my etsy store.
Custom orders or orders with personalization (ex. Design Your Own Charms, Handstamping/Engraving, Specific Size Requests) should be placed by 12/15 to qualify for FREE Domestic First Class Shipping
Non custom order or orders that do not require Personaliztion should be placed by 12/17 to qualify for FREE Domestic First Class Shipping.

This custom order is a gift for to 2 sisters.
The recipients had lost their mom a year ago, and has spent the last year training for a half-marathon to raise money for leukemia research (which is what their mom had). To mark the occasion, their friend ordered each a special charm engraved with their initials and the distance of the half marathon.

This first 'token' is a gift from a special friend to the happy couple. It is going to be incorporate into the brides bouquet. The bride had lost her mother and the groom had lost his father. The inscription reads "always on our minds, forever in our hearts" with the wedding date in the center. The backside is engraved with the brides mother and grooms father. The heart/crystal dangle in front represents her 'something blue'.
And this oval charm for Matthew and Meghan will be hung from their unity candle during the ceremony.
Congrats to both couples! Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day. Best wishes to you both!

What is Cards for Cancer?
Groups participating in Cards for Cancer have the opportunity to honor someone who has been touched by cancer. Handmade Louisiana had chosen this year to honor the memory of Jonathan DiLeo. Jonathan was an amazing person and a friend to everyone he met. He was the best friend of one of our member's daughter and he is greatly missed every day.
Each group chooses a cancer center to deliver the cards to on or before April 10th. Handmade Louisiana will deliver our cards to the Mary Perkins Cancer Center in Covington, LA. In addition to the cards, some of our members have offered to donate items as small gifts for the patients who received treatment at the center. We hope that these offerings of comfort and hope help cheer and lift up the recipients' spirits.
To learn more about Cards for Cancer please go to http://cards4cancer.org.

According to CraftCult.com my
Sterling Silver Textured Ring
was chosen by Etsy as an
in a Front Page Treasury List.
(That means that if one of the items on the front page had sold,
my item was an alternate to replace it.)
It's always been a goal of mine to make the front page, maybe now that I'm on their radar I might make it!

Love your work and blog! I wanted to post this comment on your blog but the comment link is broken or something. Anyways here it is-
"It was so nice to stumble across your blog. I've just read through 3 posts and I'm hooked :) Is there a way I could get your daily posts in a email? Tried the RSS but it just takes me to a page filled with words! LOL!"
So I thought I'd take this opportunity to share a few solutions with everyone out there that might be experiencing the same dilemma! There are multiple options for getting your Precious Metals fix ;-)
1. Blog RSS Feed
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a Web feed format used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document (which is called a feed or web feed or channel) contains either a summary of content (teaser) from an associated web site or the full text.
To subscribe the RSS feed simply click the Blog RSS link
This is going to bring you to a text/document of the same webpage. At the top of the page you should see a yellow subscription box. Click Subscribe to this Feed.
Next a confirmation box should appear. Click the Subscribe button.
Now you should see a message that says You've Successfully Subscribed to this Feed
Whenever I create a new blog post I always post a link to it on my Facebook Fan Page. My Fan Page is also linked to my Twitter account. So any updates to the Fan Page are automatically posted on Twitter. On Twitter I also post any new listings in my shop, but I don't post new listings on Facebook.

If you have a Blogger.com account you can opt to "follow" a blog. Simply locate the Followers section of the blog and click Follow
You will be asked to login to a account (I use google)
My friend Rachel, from Sohaus, also had issues with comments not working correctly on her blog. This is what she found that solved the problem:
If you want to comment on any of the blogs, you need to sign into your google account. If you've already typed up a comment without signing in, and you hit "post comment", you'll get a thing saying this couldn't be processed. Just click on "more options" and it will let you sign into your account and then your comment will show up in the feed.
There you go! I hope this helps so of you navigate the Blogger world and stay in touch with your favorite blogs.
