When life gives you lemons... make coupons :)

I am not sure what's going on with the World, but it seems the norm for many people nowadays is to feel overwhelmed by what life is throwing at them. It's like the World is upset with us and trying to help us realize how it feels like when we gobble up its resources and throw all the pollution and noise at it.

Now I've been pretty quiet lately, so not much noise here, and I do try to keep my footprint small, so now can I have my life back pretty please? :)

Speaking of carbon footprint, shopping online is definitely taking less of a toll on the World... AND ourselves. No stressful mall madness, no traffic, and best of all -- better savings!

And you know what's better than shopping online? Shopping online for HANDMADE products.

Not only does shopping handmade help a real human at the other end of the deal, but it reduces your modern slavery footprint.

Ready for shopping handmade for the Holidays? Head on over to mv.artfire.com and get your pretties at substantial Cyber Monday style discounts. I don't think I've ever had such a huge sale before, so do take advantage of it because it won't come back for at least a year :)

And yes, the coupon does work on custom orders, so if you are looking for that special gift tailored to the recipient's taste, do let me know and I will be more than happy to create the Perfect Gift for you.

mv October Games and Giveaway - Tatyanna

Well, ever since Artfire has gone commercial, I can't login to my little handmade shop anymore so I couldn't get the handmade contest ready. I guess it's for the better, since I already have a lot on my plate nowadays, but I sure do hope they fix it soon.

So since I can't do anything if I can't access my shop, I will dedicate the entirety of October's games to Tatyanna and her amazing family.

Click this button to enter the Giveaway or scroll below for more entries. The more entries, the more chances to win!

This month's giveaway prize is $15 you can spend any way you want. You could choose to have them as a Starbucks Card, a custom jewelry piece made by yours truly, pretty cards from pretty photos I've taken, or even donate them to Tatyanna's cause... The winner gets to chose anything their heart wishes for :)

The drawing will be on the 18th at 11:59PM EST and the winner will be announced here the next day. Wishing you all good luck, and most importantly FUN! :)

BONUS Giveaway Entries:

One extra entry per day for tweeting your favorite blog post @mvbeads

One extra entry for each correct answer (tweet with the hashtag #Tatyannashope, or comment below):
~ 1 ~ Who did she meet in this blog post?
~ 2 ~ What project did her sister pick?

The more people know, the faster we will find it ♥ Thank you ♥

October Games starting on Columbus Day (Monday October 10th)

I could have well titled this post "When life gets in the way" :) We will start the October games on the 10th this month... hopefully that will give me more time to organize them...

I wanted to have the big games back this month, but that requires a lot of time and life has not been waiting for slow little me lately. That is to say even foregoing sleep, I can't catch up with all the things life is throwing at me.

So this month we will have the games from October 10th to the 18th, with the giveaway drawing and contest winners announced on the 18th at 11:59 PM.

If you wish to enter your shop as a $10 Gift Certificate sponsor, please let me know if you'd prefer the cash-back option or the Extra Promo option (and 100 extra points in the contest).

There will of course be prizes from my mv.artfire.com and zazzle/mvgifts shops, as well as plenty of FUN! And as always, we will check out Tatyanna's beautiful blog and learn more about Batten and the beautiful story of a strong and inspiring little girl.

Looking forward to seeing you on October 10th ... and if you see my life somewhere, could you tell it to slow down a bit so I can catch up? ;)

    mv September Games and Giveaways


    Alright! Who broke the Internet while I was gone?! 'Fess up! LOL

    This month's games are a little delayed and there's no contest, blame it on Twitter making too many changes over the summer, and another site who has changed all its links with some bogus error. Hopefully I can figure out what's going on for next month's games and we can go back to full blown contests and giveaways :)

    So what fun shall we have this month? Anybody up for a "Find the duck game"? Ohhhhh, how about find the face in the Moon, or sharing your favorite summer memories?

    This month's games will be a little different than the usual. We'll have TWO giveaways! How awesome is THAT!

    To participate in the first giveaway, tell me about a game you'd like to play online on twitter/facebook/etc. Any games you've played before and enjoyed a lot? Any new ideas for games? Tweet me, facebook me, email me, or comment below... one entry per game, with a max of 5 entries :) This should be FUN!

    Everyone submitting games will be entered to win a GORGEOUS pair of earrings made with Miracle beads and Swarovski, or an AWESOME bookmark! The drawing will be on Tuesday September 6th at 11:59 PM EDT so don't delay, come and play!

    All game submissions that will be picked for the games leading to the second giveaway will get 10 BONUS entries in the second giveaway that will be on evening of Wednesday September 14th. The winner will get to choose either a $10 CASH prize or an equivalent handmade pretty or notecard set by yours truly. The second giveaway will start Thursday September 8th and all you'll have to do to enter is have FUN :)

    Looking forward to your entries! Can't wait to see what your favorites are! :)

    Off to fix the Internet now. Me thinks it needs mode love ♥

    Batten Disease Awareness - Giveaway

    Read on to learn about Batten.

    Click this button to enter the giveaway and see below for bonus entries

    This weekend is International Batten Disease Awareness weekend, and you all know I have a soft spot for Tatyanna and her relentless fight against this terrible disease.

    Tatyanna is a very brave little girl battling Batten disease with the help of many lovely people who have joined efforts to allow her to benefit from the latest research. She is an amazing child who finds the strength to smile and hug other people's worries away, when she herself is suffering.

    I am hoping this giveaway will help spread the word about Tatyanna's Hope and Batten disease. The giveaway will end June 8th at 11:59 EDT and you can enter by simply spreading the word about Tatyanna and letting me know. More details at the bottom of this post.

    A little about Batten...
    Batten disease is a rare inherited autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder and can affect children and young adults.

    It is the most common form of the NCL (Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses) group of disorders. The four types of Batten disease are classified by age group: infantile NCL (INCL), late infantile NCL (LINCL), juvenile NCL (JNCL), and adult NCL (ANCL).

    Batten disease is inherited through what is called an autosomal recessive pattern. It gets inherited like blond hair, i.e. if both parents carry a specific mutation in their DNA, their children have a 25% chance of being affected.

    Research has shown Batten disease is caused by problems with the brain's ability to remove and recycle proteins. This is because mutations in the genetic DNA impair the body's ability of creating certain substances, which in turn causes the buildup of lipofuscin pigments in the body's tissues.

    These lipofuscins pigments are considered "wear and tear" pigments, so research to cure Batten disease can have much larger benefits through the understanding of how the body deals with damage and aging.

    Those affected with Batten disease literally waste away. It all starts with vision and motor skills loss, and over time seizures worsen, mental alertness becomes more and more impaired, muscle mass starts decreasing, and the child or young adult's life ends blind and bedridden.

    Right now, there is no cure for Batten disease, and the very expensive treatments that do exist are only successful in slightly delaying the inevitable.

    This doesn't have to stay this way however. There is HOPE!

    Research is ongoing and eight genes have already been identified as having an association with Batten disease. Gene therapy for this disease is in its infancy, so more research is needed to help understand not only Batten disease, but many other NCL disorders.

    Help spread the word!

    The more people are aware, the faster research will progress. The faster research progresses, the faster a better treatment will be found, or even a CURE! The faster a cure is found, the more we can help Tatyanna celebrate many birthdays!

    So here's to hoping this giveaway will help spread the word. You can enter by simply telling your friends about Tatyanna's Hope and letting me know. Be it twitter, facebook, blogging, emailing, or simply telling your friends, it all goes. Spread the word!

    Up to 10 BONUS giveaway entries for finding the answers to the questions below :)
    ~ 1 ~ Who did she meet in this blog post?
    ~ 2 ~ What project did her sister pick?
    ~ 3 ~ Suitcases... they are like what?
    ~ 4 ~ How is milk packaged in this blog post?
    ~ 5 ~ What was Tatyanna's wish?
    ~ 6 ~ What color did they choose?
    ~ 7 ~ What did most drawings have in common?
    ~ 8 ~ What did Tatyanna use to say when offering coffee?
    ~ 9 ~ What did Tatyanna do to the TV?
    ~ 10 ~ Tatyanna made great progress during the treatment. What did she manage to do?


    On June 8th at 11:59PM, one lucky winner will be chosen using random.org and will win one of my HUGE Senbazuru, A Thousand Paper Cranes Get Well card, as well as a GORGEOUS one-of-a-kind beaded metal bookmark with the words of your choice (up to 15 letters) for a total value of over $20!

    PaintingByEileen Gingerpeep Cuteness Overload - ♡it?♡it! Contest Winner

    Despite the gorgeous weather competing with FaceBook, we've still managed to have a great and FUN time checking out all the new creations from AWESOME ARTISTS.

    We've only had 15 entries this month, but look how PRETTY they are!


    This month has been super crazy, so I'll update later with the 'Like' vote counts, but you can see all the beauties above at http://fb.com/mvfans. Links to each entry coming up as soon as I can get a Round Tuit :D

    Our lovely Eileen with PaintingByEileen has won the contest for a second time, and no wonder... How could you not LOVE this sleeping gingerpeep angel? :)


    This ADORABLE spice holder has more cute than cuteoverload.com! Eileen has such an amazing gift for painting with feelings. The lids of each jar are each handpainted with a different gingerpeep, each and every one more adorable than the others. That means... they are all INFINITELY ADORABLE! :)

    Look at those cuties, don't they put a BIG SMILE on your face? See what I mean? :D


    So which one is your favorite gingerbread cutie? My favorite is still the sleeping one with his cinnamon stick, but they are all SO SO SO ADORABLE!

    I'm really happy Eileen shared her gingerpeeps with us, this spiceholder really showcases her AMAZING TALENT with the brush and the heartstrings :) Each ginger face is different, each with its own personality, and ALL ADORABLE!

    We need a better word than adorable :) I'm very tempted to add Gingerpeep as a synonym for ULTRA SUPER ADORABLY CUTE... What do you think? :)

  • How to Use an Artfire Discount Coupon Code or Gift Certificate (mv Visual Guide)

    Redeeming a discount code on ArtFire is super easy!

    This visual guide will walk you through the steps needed to redeem a Coupon Code or Gift Certificate valid in an ArtFire shop.

    In summary, you would enjoy shopping, and enter the Discount Code on the second page of the checkout process.

    The first page will be the Shopping Cart, the second one the proper Checkout. The reason for two pages is so the shipping can be calculated for an accurate Order Total. The third and last page will be the payment information page.

    Let's look at using the Coupon Code mv10moreFUN for 10% more FUN :) Just replace MV10MOREFUN with your code in the instructions below.

    (IMPORTANT! When a discount is in dollars, for example $10 OFF, it means your order has to be at least $10.00, otherwise it would be a NEGATIVE PAYMENT and it won't go through.)

    How to redeem:

    No ArtFire nor PayPal accounts necessary to use your Gift Certificate code, and no need to login anywhere. Easy Peasy! :)

    To use the code:
    1) Enjoy shopping at http://mv.artfire.com
    2) Choose your pretties and click ADD TO CART
    3) When ready to checkout choose your Location (United States, Canada, etc.) in the upper right corner of the Shopping Cart, and click CHECKOUT NOW.

    The next page will have a Gift Certificate/Coupon Code box right above the address. Enter the code MV10MOREFUN and click APPLY COUPON. The Grand Total should have 10% deducted from it once the code has been applied.

    Enter your shipping information and click SUBMIT ORDER AFTER confirming the discount has been applied and the total amount is correct. Amazon, Google, and PayPal payment choices will be given (For Credit Card payments, choose PayPal without logging in to PayPal).

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Please double-check your email is correct so the seller can contact you if needed.

    And now for the visual guide... Easy as 1-2-3 :)


    Enjoy Shopping - SO EASY and FUN :)


    STEP 1: Get ready to checkout
    Choose your location so Shipping can be calculated accurately, and then click CHECKOUT NOW.


    STEP 2: Redeem your Coupon and enter your Shipping Information
    Click APPLY COUPON to see your new Order Total. COOL!

    Do check the discount HAS been applied and contact the seller before continuing if there are any problems.


    STEP 3: Thank you for placing your order. THREE payment methods are available for your convenience :)
    When ready, click SUBMIT ORDER. Amazon, Google, and PayPal payment choices will be given on the next page (For Credit Card payments, choose PayPal without logging in to PayPal).

    NOTE: Sometimes there's an extra button PayPal or other sites will ask you to click to confirm your purchase. The payment is usually not complete until a confirmation email is sent by the electronic payments website.

    DONE! :)
    You have just taken advantage of a great deal :) Enjoy your pretties!

    How to make ArtFire Coupons/Gift Certificates (mv Visual Guide)

    Creating a Coupon/Gift Certificate on ArtFire is super easy.

    This visual guide will walk you through the steps needed to create a $10 personalized Coupon Code which can be used as a Coupon or as a Gift Certificate. Adjust the amount for your needs and try other options too, it's FUN and your customers will thank you! :)

    In summary, you'd go to the Create Coupon page and:

    1) Click Coupon Code
    2) Click Dollars Off
    3) Enter Amount Of Discount: 10 USD off
    4) Apply to which items? Order Total
    5) Make sure it only applies to Orders Above 10 $USD (so there will be no errors from PayPal)

    EASY PEASY!

    You can make a pretty coupon code or just let it be automatic. Pretty coupons are more memorable :)

    And now for the visual guide... Easy as 1-2-3 :)

    STEP 1: Click the image below to go to your Coupon creation page

    STEP 2: Follow the red arrows below to customize your Coupon
    1) Click Coupon Code
    2) Click Dollars Off
    3) Enter Amount Of Discount: 10 USD off
    4) Apply to which items? Order Total
    5) Make sure it only applies to Orders Above 10 $USD (so there will be no errors from PayPal)
    6) Optional: make the code be pretty :)

    Leave "Viewable to the public" as No, and "One use per customer" checked.

    STEP 3: Click the Create Coupon button

    DONE! :)
    You now have a personalized code for $10 OFF any Order :) Enjoy!

    TheVoodooKitten B the AWESOME Pirate - ♡it?♡it! Contest Winner

    Oh my, what FUN FUN FUN! This month's ♡it?♡it! Contest was extended until Monday night... and boy do people like to have fun on Mondays LOL. But I'll tell you all about it later, I want to hurry and show you all the beauties first.

    This was the 4th installment of the monthly ♡it?♡it! (Like it? 'Like' it!) Contest which encourages everyone to share their latest creations and to click 'Like' on creations they like. It's a really FUN way of spreading the beauty of handmade while at the same time feasting one's eyes on the latest and greatest pretties from AMAZINGLY TALENTED artists.

    The wall at mv's Fan Page was transformed into a GORGEOUS art gallery for the weekend, everyone got invited to share their latest creation, and we all got to vote on ALL the ones we liked (and I got to review each and every one of them, now THAT was AWESOME FUN! I shoulda been an art gallery guide LOL)

    I'm going to start right away with the collage of entries to give you an idea of how much fun we've had! Just LOOK at all the handmade pretties... it was one of those weekends where I couldn't stop myself from refreshing and refreshing the page again and again, waiting with baited breath to see what GORGEOUS creation will appear next. So here's the eye candy we've all had the opportunity to enjoy this weekend:

    Click to travel to last month's contest...

    DROOOOOOOOL!

    TWENTY FOUR AMAZING entries! This month we've broken the previous record of 23 submissions AND the record for the number of votes on a single entry: THIRTY! WOW! What can I say, that pirate IS adorable!

    We've actually broken the previous vote record many times this month, many of the top entries have been very popular and it was a very tight race. The TOP THREE were really REALLY close!

    ☆➊☆ with 30 likes: B the AWESOME Pirate by TheVoodooKitten
    ☆➋☆ with 28 likes: Please Pass the GingerPeeps by PaintingByEileen
    ☆➌☆ with 26 likes: Fascinating Fascinator Princess by Cynthia Korman

    You can check out all 24 GORGEOUS entries by clicking on the links below (don't worry, they will open in a new window, so you can easily come back to this page). You can still vote 'Like' and comment, it's never too late to let artists know how much you appreciate their creations :)

    Each entry also has a link to the item/listing page, so if you see something you MUST have in the collage above... you know where to find it :) I've also posted my first impression under every entry link, so go ahead and have fun reading them ;)

    So here are the 24 links to the entries that made it into the ♡it?♡it! Contest:

    1st entry2nd entry3rd entry4th entry5th entry6th entry7th entry8th entry9th entry10th entry11th entry12th entry13th entry14th entry15th entry16th entry17th entry18th entry19th entry20th entry21st entry22nd entry23rd entry24th entry

    YIPEE! That's a lot of ♡s, LOVE it!! :)

    I think this month's contest's success was partly because we've extended it to Monday night. I was really tired on Sunday, and since Monday was a holiday, we've decided to close the contest Monday midnight instead of Sunday. And the flood gates of prettiness opened ;)

    I will definitely try to squeeze in a Monday for future contests as well, I guess not everyone lives on their computer day and night and weekends like I do LOL So the next contest will tentatively be scheduled for May 7th to 9th, Saturday to Monday. I really hope to see you there!

    And now let me tell you about the awesome pirate costume that won this month's ♡it?♡it! Contest. It's the cute little guy towards the upper right in the collage. The picture is kind of small, so here he is in all costumed glory. AAARRRRRRrrrrr matey! ♥

    What an awesome costume AND can be made for a little boy or a girl. Fabrics are customizable too, how awesome is THAT! This is what handmade is about, high quality workmanship personalized to the wearer... just like it used to be many moons ago before the advent of cheap wear-once-and-throw-away low quality made in China... oh, don't get me started LOL This is one LOVELY costume any child would ADORE!

    The materials used for the costume in the pic are quality cotton muslin for the shirt, imitation suede fabric lined with satin for the vest, cool cotton for the pants, and a sash made of a silky fabric that has a mottled real gold look sheen to it.

    A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

    Ah yes, for those of you who've seen last month's blog post... Yup, that's the same little guy who's won last month's contest as well, you should click the collage above to go read some of his quotes, he's FUNNY! :) Do click and read more about the artist behind these awesome costumes and what she did for Mariah Carey.

    You can find Deborah at:
  • http://facebook.com/CrankyCatStudio
  • http://VoodooKitten.com (Bonanza)
  • http://TheVoodooKitten.etsy.com
  • http://twitter.com/CrankyCatStudio

    BTW, here's a little bit of fun trivia before I go. You might have spotted a pattern of pink and grey creations in the collage above. You are not imagining things :) The Creations Color Challenge is ending April 21st, and this week's color combo is pink and grey. Isn't that FUN? :)

    Speaking of FUN, I hope to see you at the next ♡it?♡it! Contest, coming soon to a location near you: mv's fan page on your computer LOL The next one is tentatively scheduled for May 7th-9th :) See you there!

    Again, heartfelt thanks to all who've entered, voted, and enjoyed this contest. Thank you so much ♥
