Give Away to Celebrate "The Maine Gathering"

Man! It is high summer and we are so busy around the homestead and preparing for shows, craft fairs, and shops, we don't know whether to scratch our watches or wind our elbows! It is wonderful to be busy creating and building and to have the chance to meet some of you in person. At the same time, I got to tell you, the idea of being snowed in by 3 feet of snow is looking mighty inviting some weeks! We are often asked where we will be next, so for those of you wondering where you can find us, here is what we know about our schedule...

Weekly Markets:
Bucksport Bay Farmer's Market Thursdays 2pm-5pm through September (at least)
Belfast Art Market Fridays 9am-1pm through August

Fairs, Festivals, and the like:
The Maine Highland Games August 15th, Topsham Fair Grounds
The Union Fair August 22- August 29th, Union Fair Grounds

Shops & Retail Stores:
Silkweeds Route 1, Searsport, Maine
The Maine Gathering 8 Bayview St. Camden, Maine
Eden Rising 39 Cottage St. Bar Harbor, Maine

Pendant Set Prize $30 Retail Value
We are so pleased and humbled that these quality shops have chosen to carry an assortment of our original Mosaic Eggshell Jewelry, Goat's Milk Soaps, and/or Massage Melts. Of course, we love our creations. It just really feels good to know that someone else loves them, too- enough to carry them in their shops. I have always felt that we all rise together, so to speak. To that end, I often mention the shops we are associated with and other artists and their creations along with what is happening in our world. I figure, if you like us, perhaps you might like them, too. It is my habit to host give-aways when we sign on to a new shop. Besides being a nice reason to gift one of you with a piece of jewelry you might not otherwise own, it is a way to introduce you to new shops that you might not be aware of and a way for those shops to visit with new guests and make new friends. With this in mind, we are very pleased to announce a Give-Away!!! One reader will win this pendant set. There are four ways to enter using the entry form below; (1) visit Eden Rising on Facebook. (We can't ask you to give them a like, but we sure would appreciate it if you felt inclined to do so. ♥) (2) Leave a message for them. Be creative. You can do this each day and gain another entry each time. (3) Visit us on FB. If you haven't already "liked" us, feel free to join the fun! And, (4) leave a comment for us here on the blog. I love hearing from you. This give-away begins tonight at midnight and ends on August 11th at midnight. I will post the winner's name here and on our FB pages. The winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen randomly from the entries. How easy is that?

Are you ready? Get Set. Go! (Well, you know, as soon as the give-away begins... :) )

  1. I love reading about your animals, seeing pictures, and finding out what you and your family are up to on the farm. And anything about the goats. :)

  2. So happy you are having a good season!

  3. I love hearing how all the goats are doing. The turkeys are soooo cute!!! Cherie

  4. I enjoy reading about your animals. I grew up in the Midwest and on the east coast...I currently live in San Diego but I feel like a farmer in my heart ;) Jennifer H.

  5. Love your jewelry and love hearing about your farm!

  6. I love the goat pictures :) They are not something we could ever have on our small suburban block (we have chickens and a dog already!), but I like day dreaming... :)

  7. By the way, I'm not sure if your giveaway is international (I'm in the land of Oz, Down Under...) but I figured I'd enter anyway - no harm if it's not. Nice to be forced to unlurk and say hello sometimes, anyway :)

  8. My sister introduced me to your site, and I'm excited to follow your adventures and updates.
