Sponsor of the Week: Sweet Sassafras

Today we’re welcoming our sponsor for this week’s challenge, 

Sweet Sassafras is an Etsy shop owned by Kara.  Everyone say hello to Kara!

Hi, I’m Kara, a stay at home mom to a sweet and sassy 3 year old girl and a 1 year old boy! I graduated from the University of Oklahoma and am now working full-time as a stay-at-home mommy. All items are created by myself while the kids are napping and in bed at night:)

I love making all sorts of stuff, but my favorite is soldering photo gifts. There is something special about seeing your loved one on a necklace, on the Christmas tree, keychain, or wherever! I absolutely love making these gifts for others who will cherish them for years.

Love?  We’re in love with the beautiful trinkets from Kara’s shop!  Take a look at some of these lovelies:

Kara has a wonderful giveaway planned for you, this week:

I will giveaway a soldered photo charm necklace with 1-3 charms on the necklace (winner’s preference).  These are double-sided charms.  I will encase the photos in hand-cut glass, solder with super shiny solder and buff until they shine.  They will hang on a silver ball chain.  HERE is a link to this item in my etsy shop.  This necklace sells from $25 for one charm, $30 for two charms and $35 for three charms.

Look at what you could win….

Each project you link up for this week’s challenge gets you an entry for this giveaway.  For additional entries, you can:

  • visit Sweet Sassafras on Etsy, and leave a comment here telling us which pretty product is your favorite.
  • “Like” Sweet Sassafras on Facebook, and leave a comment here telling us that you did.

Thanks to Kara of Sweet Sassafras for sponsoring such a beautiful giveaway!   We’re so happy to have you with us at The CSI Project, this week.
