A Big Announcement and Stella & Dot Giveaway

Remember how I told you I met a new friend while visiting in Edmonton last week?  In the course of conversation, I discovered that Trish was involved in a business called Stella & Dot.

“What’s that?, “ I asked.

In response, she held up a bag…

Oh, mercy, I loved it.

Then she pulled out this wallet:

Oh, dear, I loved it, too.  (It looked nothing like the sad, shabby looking over-20-year-old-wallet that was nestled in my own purse!)

And, then the 3 other new friends sitting around the table started pointing to beautiful bracelets and necklaces that were dangling on their oh-so-stylish wrists and necks…


I was hooked.

So, I casually asked,

“Well, does anyone near me on my island in BC sell this stuff?”

With a few clicks on her iPhone, she responded with excitement.

“No, there isn’t!”

{Perhaps you know where this is going…}

So, I decided there should be…


After much conversation and contemplation, I decided to take the plunge.  Our son is headed to college in the Fall and I’ve been pondering creative ways I could contribute towards the college fund.

The Stella & Dot opportunity seemed really timely.

However, the timing in my life is a bit crazy!  Summer is the absolute craziest busy time of year for us!

So, I’m just going to jump right in and get this ball rolling…

To get things started, I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway right here on the blog.  I’ve been wanting to do one for ages.  You’ve all been such encouraging and supportive readers, and I want to Thank You for stopping by to “chat” on a regular basis.   I wish I could give each one of you one of my new Stella & Dot beauties, but I’ll have to limit it to just one for now.  So, **one of you will receive a pair of these gorgeous serenity stone earrings.

The winner can choose from these 4 beautiful colors:

To enter, all you need to do is comment on this post.  Be sure your e-mail address is included so I can send you a message if you win.


Also, I’ve set up my very first party for you online AND one of you will get to receive the hostess benefits!!

Here’s how it works:

I have my very own Stella & Dot website set up.  Any Canadian (sorry, residents of the US cannot order from my Canadian site at this time) can join into the party by clicking on this link.

You will then be able to peruse the online catalogue and purchase right there.  Your order will be shipped right to your door!

I’m hurrying to announce this because there is this incredible deal for customers that ends on June 30th:

I wish I could show you all the products in person.  My samples just arrived this afternoon, and I just love every. little. thing!!

The online party will be open until July 12th.  Keep in mind, however, that all orders placed after midnight on June 30th will not receive the 25$ Dot Dollar promotion.  A mystery hostess will be chosen on July 10th from all the people who’ve placed orders through the website show.

And…for those of you who live in my neighbourhood, I’ll be having my very first party (“trunk show”, they call it) next Wednesday, June 26, from 7-9 pm.  E-mail me at harbourbreeze@hotmail.ca if you would like the details or have any questions.

**The winner of the earrings will be randomly chosen on Thursday, June 27th.

  1. But what if you are a Canadian AND a resident of the US? What does the fine print say about that? Cause you are an American AND a resident of Canada and you get to party….

    Seriously, this stuff looks so fun and completely you. I just got home from a “Thirty-one” party, cool totes and semi-cool purses…Stella and Dot is, well, in another category, let’s just say. In a good way. No offense to anyone from “Thirty-One,” I even bought me some.

    Oh, and please pick my name. Even if I am a resident of the US. Thanks.

  2. I am so excited for you. Stella & Dot has such beautiful stuff and you are going to be one busy stylist! xo
