Giveaway #1 Winner, and an Etsy Seller Feature!

I just want to thank those who participated and/or RT'd my first giveaway; it was a great success! Now, to announce the winner of the fantabulous Pepper Pot journal... [drumroll]...

Tara, or better known as @BoutiqueKarma on Twitter! Congrats! You'll be receiving your journal soon.

For another first, I present to you my Etsy Seller feature. This week's seller: JulieRose! Welcome, Julie!

Along with providing some info on her shop and herself, she's generously giving away this beautiful, silver sun bead ring:


The ring is wire-wrapped with silver-plated wire, featuring a round silver colored bead with a sun design. Julie's shop mainly sells wire-wrapped rings, all of which are available in either silver-plated and sterling silver wire, as well as some necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Visit her shop here. I think her jewelry is amazing. From antique-chic to cutsie designs, I'm definitely a fan. My favorite piece is her Round Green Stone Ring, as well as her Multi Stone Charm Bracelet.

Here's a little bit about Julie: "I've been making and selling jewelry on Etsy for a little over two years now. My husband and I are expecting our first baby in five or six weeks, and my jewelry and Etsy shop will give me the opportunity to work from home while I take care of my son."

That's wonderful, Julie, and congrats on the baby! Now folks, let's begin with her giveaway.

Details:
There are several ways to earn entries, listed below. You must follow the first requirement of entry to be considered. I'll end the giveaway on September 12th (Saturday), at noon CST, or 12:00pm CST. I'll calculate the numbers and throw them into the Random.org's generator to select a winner. Later on that evening, I will announce the winner here and contact them shortly for information.

1) First, visit Julie's Etsy shop and browse through her items. Come back here and post a comment telling us which item(s) you liked the most, and what more you'd like to see. Include your email/Etsy url/etc. for contact if you win. You MUST do this first to be considered.

Extra Entries, please leave separate comments for EACH:

5) A whopping FIVE extra entries if you buy an item from her shop before the giveaway ends. She'll confirm this for me, so no lying! :P

I like the red, brown and green beads necklace best: http://ny-image3.etsy.com//il_155x125.80937791.jpg .

I think Julie should do more necklaces, because there are few necklaces compared to the amount of rings.
