Weekend Giveaway: $50 Gift Certificate to Gabriel’s Good Tidings (5 Winners)


Gabriel’s Good Tidings is a small yet growing Etsy shop run by Amy Gabriel — a wife, mom, and long-time reader of


Amy loves to sew and has enjoyed creating one-of-a-kind items and selling via Etsy. While her husband pursued a graduate degree, she financially supported her family by working outside the home for the first year of his schooling, but then came home full-time and supported him by selling on Etsy and to wholesale buyers for the remaining 18 months.


Amy’s most popular item is her clip-on lip balm holders. They easily attach to purses, keyrings, diaper bags, backpacks, and more and keep that lip balm from getting lost! She’s recently expanded her product line to offer personalized lip balm holders and even has a clearance section in her shop.


For the remainder of February, Amy is offering 40% off to all December212012 readers!  In her Etsy shop, simply use the coupon code MSM40 at checkout and the savings will be automatically deducted.  (And yes, you may use the coupon code in the clearance section! Amy loves frugality, too!)

This coupon expires 2/28/15. Additionally, if you sign up for Amy’s email newsletter, you’ll receive a coupon code to save $5 off any purchase of $10 or more – and this coupon never expires!

Amy sent me a personalized lip balm holder — in one of my favorite colors! I love it.

In addition to lip balm holders, Amy also creates unique holders for essential oil bottles. She’s worked with countless essential oil distributors to offer giveaways and discounts to those who love their essential oils.


Amy also loves to be organized, so her personal favorite product is the jumbo paperclips.  They are perfect for teachers, students, moms, and bosses! And speaking of organizing, she’s purging fabric and has it listed on her Etsy site – check out her fabric destash section if you need to stock up for less than retail.

You can hear more about Amy’s journey to creating and building a successful Etsy shop in her Brilliant Business Moms podcast (recorded last November). You’ll also want to check out her business tips, behind-the-scenes info, and new product releases on Instagram, Facebook, and email.

Would you like to win a free $50 gift certificate to Gabriel’s Good Tidings? Amy is giving away five $50 gift certificates to her Etsy shop this weekend. This giveaway ends Sunday, February 22, at 11:59 pm, CST. Five winners will be chosen and posted early next week.Enter the Giveaway
