Mother's Day FREE GIVEAWAY - Last moment addition - RAISED PRIZE FOR THE FIRST WINNER - Cheers for Julie !!!

Welcome to “Mother’s Day Giveaway” !

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ! It seems that this giveaway is becoming more attractive and fun every day ! I have the pleasure to announce that our good friend Julie from "Cre8urname" ( http://www.artfire.com/users/cre8urname ) have decided to jump in and have some fun with me, adding one of her LOVELY CUSHIONS to the First Winner of this giveaway ! Since Julie doesn't have a blog or Google ID, she cannot follow this blog and make the two steps complete to make the entry; so she had the WONDERFUL idea to join me : one of her cushions for the first winner in exchange for her entry ! Isn't it cute ???? And, if she's one of the winners, than her cushion will go to an additional/possible  THIRD winner !!!!! I think is the most funny giveaway I've ever seen ! Thank you Julie for your great innitiative !

As I have promised, today is The Day ! The entries are open, and I will keep it that way for ten days, to give each and every one of you enough time to do what you have to do in order to qualify for the final drawing! This a celebration of colors and inspiration, dedicated to my beloved Mother, and to all the women in our lives ! We all are mothers, sisters, daughters or granddaughters in somebody’s life ! And when I was working on these two wonderful pieces of jewelry I only had in mind the inside and outside beauty of an woman. We all are unique, at heart and soul, but most of the time we are unique in the way we understand to express ourselves ! Because how you dress and what you wear is Who You Are !

For this special Giveaway I decided to have TWO Winners. I had a hard time deciding which of two beauties should be the first prize and which one should be the second, and finally here they are :


A beautiful and elegant cobalt blue necklace and earrings set inspired by the mysterious and magnificent beauty of the night. Perfect for a special dinner, party or any special occasion that you have in mind. Something that when you wear, you instantly upgrade from “I’m pretty” to “Goddam ! I’m beautiful ! Actually, I’m GORGEOUS!” . I have worked this set with an amazing cobalt blue and gold lamp work beads, matched with gold tone findings and a long ball chain.

Second prize for the First Winner : Double Heart Cushion from "Cre8urname" ( http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=Shop&page_no=2&display=20&op=new&sterm=&sort_cats=&seller_id=49267&sc_id=0 )  Beautifully hand made Double Heart Shaped Novelty cushion. Made from cotton/polyester fabric, is fully machine washable and have a zipper for easy care. Decorate your room with beautiful shaped cushions, Looks fantastic on the bed or a chair. Show some-one you love them with a hand made cushion.
Colour: White with Red Lip Print and Red border with attached Small Red Heart
Size: 60cm (W) x 38cm (L) x 8cm (H)


As you may see, a refreshing and delicate set of jewelry to bright your every morning, and to always remind you that every day is new beginning ! Inspired by the delicate orchids, this beaded Genava watch and earrings set is speaking out loud for you “Forever Young” ! What else can be more refreshing than the beautiful Natural Amethyst and matching lavender lamp work beads ? This silver piece will be your day to day statement !

Oh my gosh, both prizes are beautiful but I am totally in love with the second place prize - purple is my favorite color and I don't own a watch that works. And since I cannot wear gold, even though the first place prize is gorgeous I wouldn't be able to wear it! I'm following your blog, I'm following you on Twitter and I just sent a friend request on Facebook. Great giveaway! I'll also Tweet about the giveaway. My email addy is brenda.vance@splitrockllamas.com
