It’s that special time of the year.  Some adults will be happy, the parents; some adults who are teachers will be thinking “Oh boy, here we go” and for those wonderful students, there will be plenty of “oh nooooos.”

Anywho, all students need new clothes and stuff.  To help prepare kids from preschool to college pros to return to hitting the books, this month’s Back-to-School Giveaway is about turning plain zippers into something fun and interesting.

The Scrabble Tile pendants in my shop can multitask. That’s right, they can be used other than as a pendant on a chain.  Use them as zipper pulls on school backpacks and jackets.  A lobster clasp is attached to the charm so that the charm can be removed for the laundry.  The tiles also make perfect charms for keychains as well.

There are charms for boys, girls and sports.  Want a personalized monogrammed charm,  we got those too!

One lucky winner will receive a Scrabble Tile Pendant of their choice from my Etsy shop, Backbonestudio2.  The winner will be given the choice to receive the tile as a pendant with a 24” ball chain or as a zipper pull with a lobster clasp attachment.

Here’s what you gotta do:

STEP 1:           Go to my Facebook Page and click on “Liked.”  Guess What – you have now become a Facebook Fan and will receive 15% OFF all orders from my shop, now and forever. 

STEP  2:          Go to my Etsy shop, Backbonestudio2 and browse.  Find the Scrabble Tile Charm you would just love to have, write down the title and item number.

STEP 3:           Come back to my ART blog here and leave your full name, email and the name of the tile you want to WIN!!!!.

STEP 4:           For all of you who are already Facebook Fans, please skip Step 1.

Your email helps me in two ways.  One, if you are the lucky winner I will contact you at the end of the Giveaway date and ask for shipping details.  Two, I would love to put you on my email list for you to receive periodic special email announcements letting you know about special sales and promotions being featured in my shop.  You will not get flooded with emails, I promise you that, no more than 1 or 2 a month!

Good Luck Everyone and Have Fun Exploring!
