With Gratitude

thanksgivingJust over two years ago, I set out to make a fun set of charms for a dear friend who always keeps the wine flowing. I loved presenting it to her, and loved her reaction. As the months passed, I worked on a better process, improving the materials, the glazes, the themes and ideas.

Two years later, EssenTiles are clearer, bolder, and brighter, with new designs and options, and still handmade with love! So this Thanksgiving, I would like to thank each of you for supporting EssenTiles in some way, enabling this venture to get to this point. Whether you are a past customer, a new client, a friend, fan, or partner, I thank you for your interest, your business, your encouragement.

And with gratitude, I’m offering 10% off your total purchase from EssenTiles. Please use the online code THANKU2014 at checkout on Etsy.

I wish you happy Thanksgiving and joyous holidays as you raise a glass with family and friends!
