Oh my lucky Blog!

You see giveaways come and go on the lovely blogs you stalk. Occasionally you may actually win a little something. Just check out my loot of recent blog giveaways....


Yummy chocolate carefully packed home from FRANCE by Erin at If You Give a Mom Moment (great blog title, right?). Super artistic handmade vintage rose and snow dipped glove ornament from Lee at Weber's World art and life blog (frankly, her blog opened my mind to the possibility of letting blogs inspire me artistically) and the beautiful and yes, so cool, wooden necklace is from Jillene at Jillene's Journal. If you have looked around on my pictures you have noticed this lovely thing gracing my neck here and there with style.

Thanks to all the bloggy contests! I have entered many, and these few wins are enough to make a girl want to share the love. So, here is a little picture of a necklace hand beaded and designed by ME. Now, before you go thinking I am crafty please note I made this in a workshop type of setting where I spent more time trying to make the women at my table laugh at me then actually finish my jewelry. One teenager thought I was hilarious...the others, well, not so much.

BUT I am giving this away. (Not the rose, just the necklace in it's cool Golden Ration kind of way). Even if you think it is hideous let me remind you, Mother's Day is fastly approaching and your mom might love it! All you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me something happy or nice. It can be about your day, it can be about your life, it can even be about me and my blog. (Shocking! I am fishing for niceness? I would never do that!) You have one week to leave your niceties, and you can leave as many seperate comments as you like. I will draw a name next Monday and post the winner.

By the way..... my spring shopping splurge ended up being a new dusty blue Down East T-shirt to layer under my brown shirt. Bleh. What is wrong with me?

I had a great visit with Kristi Bowen Caldwell this weekend. We had a nice Easter dinner at her house and will be moving into their ward June 1. She has 4 beautiful children the same ages/grades as 4 of my children. Cool, eh?

Let's please get together before I move?!

Dione said...

P.S. I love the necklace. If I had been sitting at the table with you I would thought you were funny and you would have made me laugh!

Calvin said...

Nice thing: I love the shabby chic vintage feel of your site, it's not overpowering...

I'm not afraid to flood this thing with comments....

Calvin said...

I love photobucket slide shows... I pretend like I put them on my blog for the viewers, but really I just pull up the site and let it run while I'm waiting for class to start... he is soooo cute... I'm a mess

Calvin said...

Easter was a wonderful moment of reconnection that I had missed for a long time... I have felt in shadow, but Easter was shimmery

Calvin said...

check out the video of Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent, very inspirational

Calvin said...

I always think your "Unite or Die" picture says "untie or die"...still inspirational, in a whole different context

Calvin said...

I love the fact that activism has finally spread into the conservative population which is not traditionally the activist type. I have heard about tea parties and protests, all peaceful and I am so thankful that Americans still remember that this is the point, we have the right and obligation to have a voice and the freedom to use it....

Calvin said...

A rain is pitpitpattering on the roof of the porch while Kristen is splashing around with Greydon in the bath, thankful for ears

Calvin said...
