New Year's Giveaway!!!


Happy New Year!!!

What better way to ring in 2010 than with an amazing GIVEAWAY!!!

Recently the very sweet & amazingly talented Lisa Leonard of Lisa Leonard Designs
sent me the loveliest package with one of her amazing handcrafted, sterling-silver necklaces inside! I love it! My girls' initials ("L" & "K") are stamped on it, which makes me love it even more!

I wear this Teenie Tiny Initials Necklace pretty much everywhere & with everything....even to take a walk on the beach and eat ice cream with the fam! :)
{and before you ask :), no, both ice creams are not mine! one was hubby's!}

Did I mention that I am in complete loooooove?!



Lisa has also graciously offered to GIVEAWAY one of her necklaces, the Teenie Tiny Initials necklace, to one lucky reader of The Blessed Nest!!!




Lisa has just added several new designs to her line of jewelry, which includes custom necklaces, inspirational pieces, and even a few pieces for the guy in your life!

The brand new Heartstrings necklace above is gorgeous!

Although, pretty much every piece of jewelry I see on her site makes me drool :).



The "Paper Lantern" necklace above....

and the "Key to My Heart" necklace below....

are also so unique and lovely!



I'll be putting this leather cuff on my wish list for sure! It would be a perfect compliment to jeans and a feminine top, along with a more delicate necklace.



Lisa Leonard is also teaming up with Ali Edwards to present the new 2010 "What's Your Word?" necklace. Love this idea! A perfect reminder of your dreams and goals for 2010!!



What I love most about Lisa's line of jewelry is that her designs are personal & meaningful. Perfect for a "mommy" or "grandma" necklace, or a special word or phrase that you want to wear close to your heart!

So, if you'd love to win your very own hand cut, hand stamped, hand-made with love, sterling-silver necklace

{JUST LIKE MINE!
-- the Teenie Tiny Initials Necklace, below, but with your own personalized initials of your sweeties!}

from Lisa Leonard Designs....


.....Then all you have to do is visit Lisa Leonard Designs and leave one comment below telling us what piece of Lisa Leonard jewelry you are craving for 2010!
(You won't get any extra chances to win by following my blog, but if you want to keep on comin' back to check out the inspiration here at The Blessed Nest, then click the Followers link and "Welcome!")

This Giveaway will be open until Midnight on Jan. 5th, then I'll announce the winner of the Teenie Tiny Initials Necklace!

chunnym said...

I am LOVIN' the Petite Family Crest! What beautiful pieces....

Amy Jo:) said...

Wow, she has beautiful jewelery! But I really do love the necklace you have, with the two initials and the pearl. I have two boys, so that would be neat to have their initials. I also have a sister that passed away, my only sibling, it would be neat to have her initial on there too...to keep her close to my heart:)

maid marian said...

How can I decide? I love all of her designs...but if I HAVE to choose it would be the "Sweet and Simple Birdie" necklace. Happy New Year!!!

Sandy said...

Thank you for such a lovely giveaway. I dream of wearing the cream freshwater pearl earrings. Just darling.

Jennifer Moffitt said...

I like the lantern one the best as it reminds me of China and the son, or daughter who is waiting there to one day join our family.

Rachael said...

I've been looking for something like this to some day give as a gift to my mom or mother in law or maybe hint to my husband that I'd like one for myself. I love the itty bity hearts necklace as well as the teenie tiny initials necklace. They are the most adorable things I've seen. What a neat way to keep your kids close to you heart!

sharonjo said...

Lisa Leonard's designs are wonderfully creative and amazing. It's hard to pick just one favorite, but I do love the Starry Nights Necklace! Thanks for the fabulous giveaway. Heppy New Year!!

Whitney Walker Alexander said...

I LOVE the Family Crest Necklace...it's been one of my favorites of Lisa's for a while now...

Jenny said...

Oh--- I just adore her jewelry!!! My favorite would have to be the laundry line necklace. As a busy mom of four, I do a ton of laundry =)!!!

my life as a wife said...

My favorite is the fly free necklace. I just might have to get that for myself!

Jen said...

The word of the year is something I am doing, so I think it would be lovely to have that one.

june@craftyniche said...

Lovely necklace!

Amber said...

I love her jewelry! Thanks for doing this! I really like the family crest necklace or the thin sterling cuff bracelet.

St. Michael's Wife said...

Woo-hoo! Gorgeous stuff! I'm ready to wear this giveaway for sure! I also LOVE the "Be still" necklace. What a great reminder that would be to wait on Papa-God instead of running ahead of Him, as I am so often prone to do. My "word" for this year is actually two words, so I guess you could say it is my "theme" for 2010: "Grow up!" I could make it sound prettier with something like "Mature Magnificently" or "Graciously Grow," but I really need to be honest, stick to the basics, put on my big-girl panties, and "Grow Up!"

Grins!

MeganSloan said...

Apparently I am not good at following directions...for, not only did I visit Lisa's site, I "applied" for the giveaway there, too! She was most gracious to direct me back to you. Sigh...
I love, love, LOVE her jewelry!!! My favorite is definitely the initials that you wear around your neck...but of course, with my own children's initials-cause that would just be creepy!
What a great giveaway...my neckline is hoping to be a winner!
