November 2009

Happy Thanksgiving!

I've been trying for 2 days to buy an ad for my Facebook fan page and I give up! I can't get past the first page on "create an ad."

When I joined FB in July, I couldn't even get to the advertising FAQ pages for over a month. When I clicked "create an ad", I got sent to a blank page. For 6 weeks, ok?

I mean, are they selling ads, or not??? Because if they are, they should pay more attention to unstable software programs which don't work.

If I ran my business the way Facebook runs theirs, I'd be refilling the napkin dispensers at McDonalds.

So here's the sale:

"The Calm Before the Storm" sale

Free worldwide shipping on jewelry (not supplies) from any of my websites Nov 21-26.

You must be a newsletter subscriber OR a Facebook fan of Meredithbead, and say "free shipping" at time of purchase to get this offer. My fan page is if you want to send your friends over.

If you buy on the Etsy website, your shipping fee will be returned promptly. If you buy through my personal websites, I accept MC, Visa, AmEx, Paypal and personal checks.  Due to increasing fees, I no longer accept Discover.  I apologize in advance for any inconvenience to my customers.

Items shipped USPS first class.


November birthstones are topaz and citrine.
Citrine increases self-confidence, optimism, and awareness. Encourages the flow of creativity. Improves blood circulation and digestion. 2nd-3rd chakras.
Topaz helps assimilate nutrients and energy.  Used to release tension.  3rd and 7th chakras.

I have several jewelry styles using citrine.  Ask if you need help finding them.  I don't currently carry topaz.

Today's metal prices:
$18.18 Sterling Silver

1140.00 Gold

When I sent the August newsletter, prices were $13.40 Sterling Silver and $932.50 Gold.  Unfortunately, this large of a price increase affects both my finished jewelry and supplies.

If you celebrate, have a happy, happy Thanksgiving!  Say thanks for the blessings in your life.

On a lighter note -- remember, leftovers are your friend.
  You don't have to eat it all at once.
