Jewelry giveaway for my bloggie anniversary......and something else

One week from today, on May 21st, I will have been blogging for 1 year. Because of this momentus occasion, I am having a give away. I asked a couple of weeks ago what you might like for me to include in the giveaway and because you all said my choice (except a couple of you cutie pies). I have decided to make it jewelry this time.

This necklace and earring set is made of hematite, onyx, turquoise and pewter. Ravens, stars and more stars are the elements of this piece. I will have more of this type of jewelry listed in my etsy shop before summer solstice, if you are interested.

I think that we all should wear signs for others to read like....t-shirts, purses, and of course jewelry. Kindness is something that you have all extended to me for the past year and so I would like to offer this "Be Kind" set.

My entry rules are super easy, no tricks or jumping over the moon or doing a cartwheel which most of you said you can't do anyway, so here it is.

You may enter this giveaway for the next 7 days simply by commenting. (that gives you 7 chances). You may also take the picture of the jewelry and post it on your blog and tell others about it and that gives you another 2 chances. Just let me know you've posted to your blog. GK will draw the winners name. 

And just because I love you all so much, I am also giving a second prize. This mermaid paper doll. This happens to be my daughter Shelley's favorite paper doll and so she will draw a winner for the mermaid.

So there you have it. The winners will be announced by noon on May 21st. Jewelry, mermaids and my undying thanks for hanging in there with me for all this time....turtle stories, uncle's antics, tails of tales, my losses, my victories, my grandkids and the day to day. You're the bestest bloggy buddies in the whole wide of the world.

  16. Congratulations to the anniversary, dear Linda!
    So many great posts.

    I have two different personalities,
    like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
    I´m most of the time a quite nice person but I can tell you I have something naughty going on under the surface too!
    I think a necklace with the words; be kind,
    could be like a reminder to myself. Like shut up or something;)
    Have a great weekend and thank´s for the lovely words on your inspiration board.
    Have a great weekend

  17. So beautiful, Linda! Of course I can't resist this lovely, generous giveaway! I love everything, the necklace, the earrings and the mermaid!

    Thanks for the chance!

    Kisses and love from us.
