Love! 
These beautiful earrings were designed and handmade by Dulcet Design in Cincinnati, OH. The earrings are made with 1/8" thick white acrylic topped with bamboo veneer with Lil BUB's face laser...

Hey guys! I'm so excited to be a part of the RAW Charlotte VISIONARY showcase presented by RAW: natural born artists, but I need your help! Make sure to expand the post to see how you can help out.

The event will be held at Tremont Music Hall (400 W Tremont Ave) on Thursday, January 15th @ 7:00pm. The event is 18+ and the dress code is cocktail attire.

I'll be eligible to win the RAW artist of the year award locally, and have an opportunity to compete against other city winners for the national title to [showcase] at the RAWards award show & ceremony in LA.

PLUS I will have an opportunity to showcase again out-of-state at any other RAW location of my choice! (Mayhaps near you?)

All I have to do is sell 20 tickets to help promote the event. Your support would be greatly appreciated. The tickets are only $15 and need to be sold by THURSDAY JANUARY 8TH @ midnight in order for me to participate. If you buy them from me you also save $5 because they go up to $20 at the door.

You can purchase your tickets at the link provided. If you are not available to attend that night, you can still purchase a ticket to support me and my work. This will open up a guest list spot for me to invite someone from my Charlotte network to attend.

Ticket holders, local and out of town, can select a free pair of any of my stud earrings to receive at or after the event and includes shipping for those of you who don't live in the area. Please contact me after you purchase your ticket to order your free pair!

Consider joining the Facebook Event (search for RAW Visionary CharlottE) to help it gain visibility, sharing my ticket link on your social networks or just giving me a shout of support back (I'm so totally nervous!). Thank you so much for your support, I couldn't do any of this without the love and support from each of you!

Who wants to take pictures of my products and manage my website? The pay is zero dollars and I will love you forever. No? Yeah...me either.

Totally Halloween colors in this cross stitch kit. I need to update the pattern booklet for the holidays. I wonder if there's a spooky pattern somewhere in that grid...
