The Annual Birthday Sale! All C&T Guides 1/2 Price + More…

Hey there, guess what? It’s my birthday!!

I am the ripe old age of 32 today ūüôā

And you know what that means, right?

Yep, it’s time for my annual birthday sale – which means rather large discounts for you.

Why do I do this?

Well, I like celebrating my birthday by giving you something (a discount), and by doing that, you give me something (money and the satisfaction of making another sale. I never cease to get happy feelings whenever someone buys something I’ve made!).¬†Give-give = win-win!

Here’s what’s happening this year:

Create & Thrive Guides – 50% off

Both guides currently available here on Create & Thrive –¬†Etsy Success Stories¬†&¬†How to Run a Rockin’ Mailing List¬†– are half-price from Friday-Sunday only.

If you’ve got a crafty business, and need help to make it grow, both of these guides are for you.

No coupon code required, they are already altered to be half-price – $10 instead of $20 for¬†How to Run a Rockin’ Mailing List, and $8.50 instead of $17 for¬†Etsy Success Stories.

Epheriell Jewellery – 25% off store-wide

This is the ONLY store-wide sale I have all year that’s open to everyone¬†(I sometimes have sales only open to my¬†Silver Service¬†subscribers, but never with such a large discount store-wide).

So, if you’ve had your eye on something, this is the best chance you’ll get till this time next year to make it yours!

Shop on and enter the code HAPPYBIRTHDAY2013 in the coupon code box on checkout to get your 25% discount.

{Yes, this sale is on in the¬†Etsy¬†shop, too, but stuff costs a few more dollars there due to the exchange rate, so you’re better off shopping at!}

Buy as much as you like, as many times as you like.

Epheriell Earring-of-the-Month-Club

Normal discounts – including the one above – do not apply to Earring-of-the-Month Club membership, as per normal.

HOWEVER – if you buy a¬†12 month subscription¬†during this birthday sale period, I will give you 15% off the total subscription price!¬†{That’s over $50 off}

Please purchase this through the store separately from any other items, and use the code CLUBSUB2013 to get this special.

Sale runs from midnight Thursday till Sunday night, the 28th of April, midnight, AEST.

There are no extensions, no exceptions, no retroactive discounts on this sale!


Now, it’s time for me to chill out with a good book, but I’ll be keeping an eye on my email throughout today and the rest of the weekend if you have any questions!

I’m looking forward to my special birthday breakfast of homemade waffles, hash browns, bacon and eggs! Mmm… followed by dinner out with friends at a cider bar and¬†restaurant tonight.

Hopefully it will be the best birthday ever!
