Bloggy Giveaway...

Oh, yes... you read right! There's another Bloggy Giveaway on the horizon, and I'm so excited with my offerings, I can barely contain myself. I have a handful of fantastically jeweled creations to share with y'all again this coming Giveaway, including some beautiful Witness Bling, as well as a very, very special piece. It's a simple piece, really, but it has so much meaning behind it, and it's also the piece of jewelry that I'll give you a sneak-peak at... in description only -- no pictures just yet.

The "Remembrance Necklace"
Many people who have experienced miscarriages, or have lost a child, have emailed me to ask me if I have designed any "Remembrance Jewelry." I have really been praying and waiting to be inspired by the "perfect design," and in December, it finally hit me.

I had made a simple, yet lovely necklace for one of my dear sister-in-laws. It was designed as a "Mother's Necklace" with the birthstone of her daughter, but the more I looked at it, and the more I held it in my hand, the more I was confident that I had stumbled across the perfect piece to use as a "Remembrance Necklace."

I personally think it is so delicate, lovely, and simple. I think it is the perfect piece of jewelry for a mom who has lost a child (no matter the age), or for a mom who has suffered one or more miscarriages, and I can't wait to show you a picture of it... but you'll have to wait for the unveiling until January 28!

Obviously, this particular giveaway will be targeted to a special group of women, and I can't wait to pass this on to one of you so that each time you wear it, you will remember your dearly loved child that is now playing on the sweet green grass in heaven while he or she waits for you to hold their hand again.
On January 28, I will put up one post for each piece of jewelry I will be giving away. Your entry will be a comment that you leave on the respective posts when you click the "Post a Comment" link. You MUST include a good email address that will, and this is very important, accept emails from my email address. As you can probably tell, I've had a LOT of problems with this already. Rest assured ... when you use the proper comment form and put your email address in the comments form, it will not be shown to anyone but me.

The Giveaway will be open until Saturday, February 2, 2008. At some point during February 2, I will close the comments to the Giveaways, and will use a Random Number Generator to draw the winners for each contest, and will make the announcement sometime by Noon on Monday, February 4.

Both US and Canadian entries will be accepted.

Got any questions? you can email me, or go HERE. Want to participate? Go HERE.

What a sweet idea, dear GiBee. I can't wait to see it.

Thanks for always doing this whole giveaway thingy with excellence. I'm so glad you are joining in again. I know God will hand pick the person He wants to receive that necklace.

Just your description of the meaning behind the Remembrance piece you created made me weepy, GiBee. Whoever wins that in your giveaway is going to truly be blessed. What a wonderful thing to make for someone who's lost a child.

I'm excited about this next giveaway too. I'm really, really excited for whoever wins what I'm giving away. There will be no doubt at all that it's something that has to do with one of my favorite things to blog about. :-)

Gibee,
You have such a beautiful heart. I would love to win the Remembrence Necklace for my dear friend whom has not only had a miscarriage but also lost a baby to a genetic abnormality. She has such a beautiful spirit and I would love to give her something so special.

Hi, I lurk here on occassion and always leave blessed.

I had to de-lurk here. The rememberance necklace has put tears in my eyes. While I have a special necklace for my two daughters, I have nothing for the two babies we'll hold in heaven. I've always looked for something, but nothing said "THIS IS IT". So I eagerly await this piece.

What a special idea. Thank you!
