Giveaway!

I am so excited to announce this giveaway! Amber, a darling mom from Kansas who reads my blog (and always leaves the sweetest comments), wants to give away something special to one of my readers. Amber has an Etsy shop and sells unique hand stamped jewelry. She has beautiful "timeless treasures" that you can purchase online or you can have her create something unique and special just for you.

I wanted something simple that included each of my kids' names and a blue jewel stone. This necklace Amber made me couldn't be more perfect!

I love this necklace so much! I wear it all the time and always get compliments on it. Plus my girls think it's so cool I'm wearing their names around my neck. :) I know they feel special whenever I have it on.

This is another piece I love from her shop! You can visit her Etsy shop or her blog to see some of the beautiful jewelry she has created.
Amber is giving one of my readers $30.00 credit to her shop so you can create something beautiful for yourself! Just leave a comment to enter the giveaway and I'll pick a winner Thursday evening (Sept. 23).
So take a peek at her shop and then go ahead and leave a comment - you have nothing to lose! And it's so great to support mom-preneurs. Especially really nice ones. Really nice ones who also make beautiful jewelry.

Thanks again Amber!

p.s. Thinking I need to audition for a job at QVC. I'm clearly a natural at this whole jewelry modeling thing. I mean look at those freckles! Nothing shows off sterling silver like freckles. At least that's what I always say... ;)

Oh my gosh! I love your necklace. I am going to order one just like that with my 4 kids' names--even if I don't win.

Katie said...

So pretty and something you would have forever! Also, I think you should totally be a QVC model. :)

Rebecca said...

I bought this necklace for my sister-in-law for her birthday with her 3 babies names. She LOVES it and gets so many compliments. I keep thinking I'll order one for myself but just have not gotten around to it.

Hi Erin
I'd really love that necklace. I lost my baby boy two 1/2 weeks ago to an unexplained miscarriage, and I was just wondering where I could find a necklace that would include all my kids' names, including baby Oliver. Off I go to check out the site.

Megan said...

Aww, your necklace is gorgeous! And as a mom who is getting ready to launch my own Etsy store, I LOVE to support other moms on Etsy too. I'll definitely be checking out Amber's store....and something tells me she may be getting many orders to recreate necklaces in the same style as yours ;)

Thank you so much to you and Amber for the chance to win!

kami @ nobiggie.net said...

Malea said...

Yer just gargeous, Erin. I actually do think the freckles show off the necklace better. I want a necklace just like yours. With four names. And a blue stone as that is the color of my birthstone, and blue for boys. Perfect!!!

Morgan said...

Josie said...

You ARE a beautiful jewelry model! I was thinking - wow Erin! Then I was thinking of you making Kenny take these pictures of you and how he'd make fun of you, and THAT made me laugh. Way cute necklace, love it!

Becca Taylor said...

Woohoo! I love giveaways! Hope I win :)

Robyn Brown said...

Enter me! I would love a necklace like that. Those freckles really are the best.

Brooke said...

Love, love, love the necklace. Never entered a giveaway on a blog before (which is noteworthy since I read so darn many). Keeping my fingers crossed.

Jessica Hanewinckel said...

Ooh, her shop has so many pretty things, and there's really something for everyone. I don't have my own little ones yet, but those wine glass charms are calling my name! :)

Jill B. said...

Hi Erin! This is Jill from the retreat. I am impressed that you already have a post since being home. You have a great blog and I love the necklace. I will check out her shop. Thanks!

Heather said...

Simply love it. If only I had a chance of winning. :)

Genn said...

Oh that necklace is so pretty! She makes beautiful stuff!

Looks great on you with the blue charm too. You should check into being a QVC jewelry model. Litte money on the side eh? ;)

tonya B said...

oh, i love that necklace. i have 2 children and that would be such a great win to have them around my neck all the time.
thanks for the chance to win.

Kevin and Andrea said...

I absolutely love these necklaces! They are so darling! I told my hubby I wanted one of these as a "push present" when I had my 3rd.... guess he didn't listen!! I never got one!!

I however have no freckles, so I'm sure it won't be as cute on me as it is on you! But... I'd still like one to add my little munchkins names to one. :0)

Tammy said...

I would love to have a necklace with my two girls names on it. I love the thought that they would be close to my heart! I liked several items at the shop so I'll definitely have to send some hints to my hubby for possible Christmas gifts!:) Thanks!

Lindsey said...

I love that one of yours- simple and yet so perfect. Do you think that would work for five kids or would it just weigh me down?!!

The Harrises said...

You are obviously blessed more in the chest than I am. It's probably nursing. I think I would have to get a new bra to make my necklace dazzle.

Geez! I hope you have time to read all these comments. Crazy.

Sonya said...

Cute! I love the initial/birthstone necklace! Thanks for hosting this!

Ashley Smith said...

Dear Erin, I read your blog since you had the operation, but never leaved a comment until now (I am ashamed). You are a wonderful woman and mother! I love your hair style. I will even use "Enjoy Straightener" based on your recommendation.
Regarding the necklace - it looks gorgeous on you!
Can't wait to see how one looks on me ;-)

Heidi said...

Wow...115 comments! You are so popular, Erin. :) I still LOVE your blog and look up to you so much. Oh and I love that necklace to. Those pictures of you are darling.

Mitch and Robyn said...

I would love to win! I actually have bookmarks on our computer of different companies and websites that make similar pieces. I told Mitch that I wanted something like this for mothers day but being a student and not having a penny to our name we just can't afford it. I love that this jewelry is hand made and so personal. I would love to be able to wear Malia's name around my neck and add to it later down the road when we have more kids and hopefully a little money... Who ever wins this is going to have a beautiful piece of jewelry that is timeless, priceless, and something they will hopefully wear forever! Simply Divine! Love it!

is it too late????
