THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. (Anna L.--you just barely commented in time! Good timing!)
Lisa Leonard has provided a 20% off coupon code to C. Beth Blog readers, so even though it's too late to win this necklace, you can get a discount when you purchase one of her great pieces! The code is "momsrock20" and it should be good until at least mid-March 2009.
Last year around Mother's Day I discovered Lisa Leonard's handmade jewelry. I hinted to the Engineer that I'd like one of her necklaces. And by "hinted," I mean that I showed him exactly which necklace I wanted, told him what text I wanted on it, and placed my hands over his on the keyboard as he ordered it. Okay, I didn't do the last thing, but I did answer questions as he placed the order. I loved the "surprise" gift, and we were both happy.
Since then I've followed Lisa's awesome blog, and I've blogged about her jewelry a couple of times. I know some of you have ordered her handmade pieces too.
So imagine how excited I was when she contacted me...and offered to do a giveaway for you, my fantabulous readers!
I chose the adorable "little lovebird necklace" for this giveaway.
From the description on Lisa's website: "This one is so cute, I can't stand it! A 1" sterling oval pendant is sweetened by a tiny bird with a heart wing. The word 'love' is stamped around the bottom of the oval, or choose your own word, up to 10 characters. Strung from 18" fine link chain with a cream freshwater pearl. Perfect!" Hopefully you will win...but if you don't, you can purchase this necklace at the "Something Inspired" page on Lisa's site. And there are so many other gorgeous pieces! Check it out--your wish list will be delightfully long.
Here are the rules:
- To enter, just leave a comment here. Any comment will do, but maybe you'd like to entertain me by writing a haiku about why you'd like this necklace. (In case you haven't figured out by now, I get a kick out of haiku. It's a poetry form short enough that even with two kids I have time to read one.)
- You can win extra entries by encouraging your friends, family, blog readers, etc. to enter this contest. In their entry, they need to let me know that you referred them...and you'll get an extra entry every time someone does that.
- I'll announce the winner (chosen randomly) on Valentine's Day--this Saturday. Make sure either you come back to see if you won, or that I have a way to contact you (by linking to your blog, or leaving an e-mail address.)
- Winner must have a mailing address in the US or Canada.
Good luck, and be sure to check back on Saturday to see who won! And a big, huge THANKS to Lisa Leonard for her generosity!
