Fun Friday = Giveaway

Since I have been so sporadic in blog postings lately, I decided that I needed to try to win back some bloggy love by doing a giveaway.

My criteria for fashion these days consists of trying to find something that is fitted enough that it doesn't make me look larger than I am but not so fitted that I look like an old woman trying to pour myself into teenager clothing. I must be able to bend over to pick up small toys without showing my tail. It shouldn't wrinkle after children have wallered (there's a southern word for you) on me and if ironing is necessary, you can forget it! Honestly, by the time I get my girls dressed with their matching outfits and pretty hairbows, I resort to whatever is clean and can be put on without a fuss. Usually, this amounts to jeans and a t-shirt. As far as jewelry goes, I rarely stray from my silver hoop earrings, silver pendant necklace and wedding rings (I know, stylish huh?)

So, when I approached Adam's Aunt Vicki who owns the etsy site, SoMuchImagination, asking her if she'd like to give away a piece of jewelry on my blog and she asked me what I had in mind, I gave her the above description. I further explained that it would be nice for all of us hard working moms to have something that we can throw in with our hard working wardrobes to spice things up a bit. But most importantly, since most of us have kids pulling on us all day long, IT MUST NOT BREAK EASILY!!!

So, I now bring forth to you, the super fun, TUSCANY BRACELET. Aunt Vicki not only made a bracelet for me to share with my fellow bloggers but she also made one for me! Yea for me! Thanks Aunt Vicki!




So, here's what you need to know about the giveaway.. It is open to everyone within the continental US. You do not have to have a blog to enter. Winner will be randomly picked and announced here on Thursday July 2.

How to enter:
1. For one entry: In a comment, leave me your e-mail address for Vicki's address list so that she can e-mail you when she's got a new piece of jewelry. If you aren't comfortable leaving your e-mail address here, you can e-mail me at everythingpictured@gmail.com.

2. For one entry: become one of my followers and leave me a comment telling me that you did. Or, if you're already a follower, leave me a comment telling me you are.

3. And for 5 entries: blog about my giveaway on your blog and comment telling me that you did.

4. For 5 additional entries, go to Vicki's etsy page and come back here and tell me what your favorite item is and why.

So, you can potentially have 12 entries.

Blessings,
Dana

I absolutely love this bracelet! I saw it in person and it really is great. Don't enter me in the drawing because it would look kinda suspect if your sister won but keep it in mind for holiday giving!! ;) Love Denise

PS. Just went to her site... LOVE the aruba wave piece. I love bright colors, but don't wear them enough. Black is the main thing in my closet... cause it's slimming, right???

Checked out the site- I LOVE the recycled and reloved pendant. What a great idea!! I am a silver girl through and through and the idea that it was all created from other pieces is amazing. Nothing going to waste and I like that!
