Lisa Leonard Designs Giveaway!!

This giveaway is now closed!

Oh, yes, I told you this was a good one, didn’t I? If you travel in the same blog circles I do, I know you’ve seen her and her fabulous handmade jewelry around. In case you’ve been living under a rock, go visit Lisa Leonard Designs now. I’ll wait.

So, I had entered quite a few of her giveaways, fingers crossed, and last month it finally happened…I won a $50 gift certificate! It took me a couple weeks to finally decide what to order.

I had always wanted one of her Teeny Tiny Initials necklaces.

But I also loved the Open Circle Necklace (there’s a bracelet version too).

This Oval Monogram Necklace is scrumptious…classic and modern at the same time. Unfortunately, my monogram is HAB, or alternatively if I use my maiden name as my middle name, HAM. Not good. You may have better luck if your last name does not start with a vowel.

Your hubby would get big points for getting you the Kisses and Hugs Necklace (subtract a couple if you suggest it to him in the first place).

With all this loveliness to choose from, it was a hard decision to make, but I finally settled on the Be Still Necklace.

I don’t know Lisa’s story behind the name, but it made me think of Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God”. The design itself reminded me of the scripture in Matthew 6 which says “look at the birds of the air” and “consider the lilies of the field”. God takes care of them, and are you not much more valuable than they? Don’t worry! (My paraphrase.) I thought it was a good thing to be reminded of.

My necklace arrived, charmingly packaged, and I have worn it nearly every day since. I absolutely love it!IMG_4236

I contacted Lisa to let her know how pleased I was, and she graciously agreed to allow me to do a giveaway! One of you will win a $50 gift certificate to Lisa Leonard Designs! I’m so excited for you, because I know you will love your choice as much as I love mine! If you are unselfish and generous, you could even get something as a Christmas gift for a loved one!

Here’s the fine print:

1. One entry: go to Lisa’s website and look around, then come back here and leave a comment telling me your favorite piece.

2. Additional entry: become a follower of my blog. If you are already a follower, that counts too, but either way, you must leave a separate comment notifying me of it.

3. Additional entry: spread the word. Blog or tweet about it and then come back here and leave another comment.

I finally figured out how to have my comments automatically numbered, and I will strictly be using those generated numbers. So, if you leave one comment saying “I like the ring, I’m a follower, and I blogged about it” you will only get one entry. You must leave a separate comment for each entry.

The giveaway will end Thursday, November 12 at 11:59 p.m. CST.

Good luck, and a big thank you to Lisa Leonard!!

I have always loved the initials necklace but now that you showed me the one you chose I think I would go with that one. Ps 46:10 has taken on a very special meaning to me lately.

Katy~The Country Blossom said...

Oh...I love so many...but I think I would use the gift certificate to get the sterling ring that can be stamped. I would get my husband and my names on it and the year 2010. IN Sept. of 2010 we will celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary by renewing our vows <3. I would love to use this ring in remembrance of that!!!! :)

Holly - I'm a Holly from the midwest too (now transplanted to AZ). I don't know how to tweet and have unsuccessfully tried to create a blog last winter, but it's still sitting in "frame" stage. Perhaps you could offer a tutorial one day on your blog on where to go for info on how to create a blog and how to tweet.
I follow your blog everyday. Our thrift stores in AZ aren't as good as yours.
Anyway - the hugs/kisses necklace is so simple and classic - reminds me of how my mom used to sign my bday cards when i was little.
