Introducing: Premonitory Dreams, and a GIVEAWAY!! ***CLOSED***

At long last, good people of the internet, I am pleased to present to you, my new labour of love (and profit? Hopefully?) Premonitory Dreams

Premonitory Dreams is my new Etsy shop, where I will be selling my original art, and my craft endeavors, including jewelry.  My efforts and inspirations are shaped by the materials at hand, and thus some items will be available in limited quantities only.  I aim to use re-purposed and second hand materials, keeping waste out of landfills and breathing new life into old things.

I'm pleased to present the maiden designs offered in my shop! These handmade leather and suede necklaces are a simple and elegant way to dress up a casual outfit, or add a little bit of edge.  The neutral colour schemes mean they work with a wide range of outfits, through all seasons.  And best of all, there's some customization to be done! The Leather Banner Necklace is custom embossed with the word or words of your choice (up to 15 characters, including spaces) for an off-kilter personalized look.  Embossed with your name, your pet's name, your blog's name, or your superhero alter ego, this necklace is sure to get you noticed.  Also available now is the Leather and Suede Fringed Chevron Necklace, in black and caramel.  I love to dress this necklace down with a chambray top for day, or wear it with a maxi dress and my black leather Litas at night.  It's a little bit country, a little bit punk rock, and a whole lot of awesome.

And because I couldn't have dreamed of starting something like this without the unwavering support of my readers and interwebz friends, I have a couple things to offer you today to say thank you!

First up is this blogs FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY!!! As my numbers teeter near 100 followers on GFC and 50 followers on Bloglovin', now feels like the perfect time to give a little somethin' somethin' back.

  5. These are so awesome! I'm so happy for you! I follow you but never had through GFC because I never use that- but I just had to today because you were teetering on 99 :) BAM! Oh geez- I don't know what I would have on there but I really like Lauren's idea... ;) Congrats, girl!!

  9. Congratulations! That's so exciting. I hope it's super successful. I love the designs as well!

  10. Awesome!

    I SO wanna win the embossed necklace! SO LOVELY!



  11. Yay! Congrats on your new shop! I look forward to seeing all your lovely goodies! :)

    I follow on Bloglovin!


  12. I follow you on GFC! I think this is so nifty.

    I'd want mine to say Balance


  13. I followed you via GFC and tweeted it @ https://twitter.com/prettysweetly/status/309842144758222848.
    I think I would have "prettysweetly" or "liza" embossed onto it. Most likely "liza", though, so that people would be more likely to call me Liza offline as well (since they're having such a difficult time in doing so).
    If that doesn't work, flavors.me/sarlaw has a contact form that works. Sometimes my mail gets sent to people's spam. D; I'm working on this!

  14. oh shoot if I win can i get back to ya on the name part? that is too big a decision after this week... but anyway, CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR SHOP!! this is huge; I'm so happy for you Erin!! I know you've been saying you wanted to open one on here so I'm so glad you have! what lovely little necklaces and even better you're keeping things from landfills! email (cuddlycactiblog@gmail.com)

  15. Oooooh! Love them! I would either get "hot tramp" or "rebel rebel" because I'm on a David Bowie kick right now.

    Congrats on the opening of your new shop, girl!


  16. Congratulations!
    Love the necklace!!
    As for the words, I'm really not sure, I'd like to think about this some more, maybe "We Are Free"?
    I follow you on GFC! My email address: anastasia21_11@yahoo.gr
