WholeportÂ® All the Supplies for Your Beautiful Handmade Life
Our colleague Leon got in contact with Christine, the heroine behind How-to-Make-Jewelry.com, and intended to show his appreciation of Christineâ€™s handcrafted jewelries by inviting her to join our Free Sample Gifting Project. Christine looked into our store and picked a few shell beads from which she said she got a great idea. We were happy to learn that our supplies inspired Christine and we suggested to her that she share our Free Sample Gifting Project with her friends who also love crafting.
Guess what? Christine applauded the idea of giving first, to receive later. Actually, she said this was her philosophy as well. (Salute to Christine for this shared philosophy!) She asked Leon if it was Okay to send the message to her 8000+ newsletter readers. Why not- we are very serious with our business of providing supplies for people who love this handmade life and are willing to know them from Christine. Christine was just afraid that we didnâ€™t get enough supplies.
So here is the reply. No worry, dear Christine- we received a little over 200 emails asking to join the Free Sample Gifting Project by now, two days after you got the word out. We were very excited to see so many friends from the crafting community get to know us through Christine. Salute to Christine again! And warm welcome to every friend joining this Project under Christineâ€™s introduction.
Dear all friends, the requests to join the Project keep coming in these two days and we were getting a little bit overwhelmed. But donâ€™t worry, we make sure everyone gets what he/she needs, and please just allow us some time to get back to you.
Over the weekend several of our colleagues worked over time to categorize the requests. There are three groups-
1. Those who left their shipping addresses to us with no special requirement to the samples. There were 80+ of people in this group and we had got the sample packages ready for them. We intended to give these friends fun of serendipity, so we gave each package a bit of this, and a bit of that- some natural stones such as amethyst and agate, some quartz, some turquoise, some wooden beads or pendants, some colorful acrylic beads, etc. Hope the sample package arrives at your door with a happy surprise and inspires you for some crafts very special and different!
2. Those who wrote to us with a special requirement as to which kind of beads theyâ€™d like to receive. There were 60+ people in this group. It would take a little bit more time for us to attend to each special requirement, so please allow us two or three days to get the packages ready for friends in this group.
3. Â Those who wrote to us but without leaving their shipping address to us. There were 70+ people in this group. We had emailed them back one by one, asking for their preference of the samples and their shipping addresses by today.
Dear friends referred to us by Christine- please understand that we got over 200 sample requests in these two days and be a little bit patient if you havenâ€™t heard back from us yet. An email will be sent to you after the shipment of your sample package is done. Also to show our thankfulness of Christine, readers of Christine will get a coupon together with the sample package they receive, for 15% off their future purchase. As said, we will make sure everyone gets what he/she needs!
Letâ€™s enjoy this beautiful handmade life together!

Since we started our Free Sample Gifting Project one week ago, 15 crafters all over the world joined and took free samples which they already were familiar with, or which they would like to try for their new product lines. We are more than happy to see that our supplies bring fresh inspirations to the artists!
Shirley is a loving grandma for seven grandchildren living in the States. She operates a store on Etsy selling her own handcrafted jewelries inspired by God, as her storeâ€™s name, â€œJust God Inchargeâ€, claimed. I particularly love her taking of colors- it is told us that Shirley must be an elegant woman in real life! The colors of her jewelries are not very exaggerating, just moderate, yet very natural and harmonious.
The sample package to Shirley included a few kinds of natural stones, amethyst beads, turquoise beads, etc. which fit her current collection of jewelries. In her email to me, Shirley said that she was considering adding a childrenâ€™s line since she had seven grandchildren. So a few wooden beads and pendants of animal and cartoon shapes were also picked and added to the sample package, in the hope that Shirley would get inspiration from the lovely, colorful, and very important- harmless supplies and make a great new line for children.
