WE HAVE A WINNER!!!
Baby Girl drew your name from over 20 participants through flickr, email, & my blog!
Thank you to everyone who participated, I really value your helpful feedback for improving my etsy & sharing your personal stories. Be sure to check back here for future giveaways! This was so fun!
(baby girl is wearing a hair bow clippie by supernerdstef on etsy & sweet dress is by wildolive kids on etsy...I made a mistake posting that it was the birdseed dress by PrettyMe on etsy...which we have & love...just wanted to give correct credit where credit is due)
This is my first time doing a giveaway on my blog! Yay!
The piece I'm giving away is my 'breast cancer hope' heart shaped resin pendant necklace!
I've known people who have had breast cancer & survived...as well as people who have suffered great loss due to breast cancer. This necklace was inspired by my own little scare a few weeks ago...which turned out alright...but the 'scare' of it is still with me. I think 'what if'...and look at my little ones & it shakes me to my core. I count myself lucky & feel blessed!
I made this pendant to work through some of my own feelings... may it be treasured & go to a good home!
The pendant is hand cast resin...with a pink ribbon symbol, various glitters, real cupcake sprinkles that look like the pink ribbon symbols, & more glitter. It hangs from a silver plated bail & an 18" metallic ball chain.
The value of this piece is $30.
To enter to win, all you have to do is visit my etsy shop & come back here to tell me three things in the comments below before March 31, 2009:
1. Your favorite item
2. Your least favorite item or what I should improve...I'm looking for constructive criticism here...to help my shop be the best it can be!

Be sure to leave me your email address, as that’s what I’ll use to randomly choose a winner at the end & notify the winner.
I will do the drawing & announce the winner on April 1st... no fooling! :o)
Please feel free to share your own personal experiences with breast cancer & how it has affected you & your loved ones. The greatest thing I experienced with my scare was the reaching out by others...to tell me to be strong, hang in there, and to say they'd been through it & were just wishing me the best & thinking of me.
Sometimes the worst things in life bring out the best in people.
