Giveaway! Pink Pearl and Rose Quartz Necklace by Frasapeas on Etsy

Sunday, January 31st, 2010

I apologize for the poor quality of this picture, yipes! The official pic was removed from the shop, and my camera is not cooperating. The flash has ruined the image.

I really love the Frasapeas jewelry shop on Etsy because it is as organized as I wish I were in my life. Everything is laid out easily to navigate, and it’s a very buyer-friendly site – offering alterations/adjustments, custom designs, bridal party ideas, and free gift wrapping/custom name tags (which come in handy for birthday’s/Christmas/etc). Everything about the online jewelry shop, from the green garnet and ruby earrings to the shop’s business card is beautiful and designed with great art and care. And you KNOW I wouldn’t say that if I didn’t mean it. There’s no reason to bring up a business card, after all, unless it is a truly wonderful little piece of art. And the Frasapeas one is!

GET SERIOUS Pet Stain & Odor Remover Review & Giveaway!

As an animal lover, something you find yourself dealing with are stains from your pets. They happen because they are young, or old, are sick or have an accident. Whatever the reason, the smell that lingers and the stain that stays is no ones friend.

Shopdog had several accidents earlier this year because she was sick, and it left yellow stains. Shopcat hasn’t had any accidents, but previous cats have sprayed into the corners of the place which means that some people can ‘always’ smell cat urine, and when other cats visit they are compelled to spray (pee!) in the exact same place. This is where pheromones come in. Cats are very competitive about wanting to mark their territory.

I was happy to receive a bottle of GET SERIOUS Odor, Stain & Pheromone Extractor for cats, and one for dogs. Even after using other cleaners on Shopdog’s accidents, the yellow stain had stayed. But when I used GET SERIOUS on these OLD stains, it STILL considerably lessened the stains color. The product was so easy that even my friend with a new manicure dared to use it. It’s very gentle, and there is no bad or ‘clinical’ smell like you get with other cleaners.

For Shopcat, we worked in the GET SERIOUS product where other cat’s have sprayed because if I introduce another cat, I can ... Read More
