G is for Giveaway!

For today's A to Z Blogging Challenge, I thought I would take the opportunity to host my first giveaway!

What's the prize? Funny you should ask that! I've said it before and I'll say it again - I think I must have fairy blood, because I am a sucker for shiny things! With that in mind, for the Something Shiny Giveaway, I'm offering one lucky blogger a beautiful silver necklace (24" in length) with a rhinestone studded pendant. The rhinestones are a mixture of clear and pastel (blue, pink and green) stones. I thought it was gorgeous when I first saw it. I have taken a few photos, altough they were taken with my phone and are not the best photos. They fail to show some of the detail I'd like to pick up. However, I will try tomorrow night to upload some better photos and replace the ones in this post with the new ones.

The entire necklace.

Now, onto the ways you can enter to win this necklace if you're interested:

  1. First off, leave me a comment telling me something difficult you've gone through in the last year that would be an indication of why you could use a little pampering. (1 entry)

  2. Follow my blog through Google Friends Connect and leave me a comment stating you're a follower. If you already follow, that counts as well. (1 entry)

  3. Follow me on Twitter and leave me a comment telling me you're a follower. (1 entry)

  4. Tweet about the giveaway and leave me a comment stating you did and linking to the tweet. - I entered the Something Shiny giveaway at Wistfulgirl's World: You could too!
    (1 entry per day)

  5. Blog about the Something Shiny #giveaway and leave me a comment with the link to the post. (3 entries so 3 comments

1) After financially supporting both myself and my sister for the past 6 months I lost my job (this occurred less than 24 hours after being seriously rejected by the guy I was sort of dating).

2) I'm already a follower!

3) I started following you on twitter too!


I haven't blogged about the give away... yet. I will make sure to do it tomorrow though!

here via the A to Z blogging challenge and would love to enter your giveaway!

I lost my job this year. I'm a single mom with a son in college so it's difficult. I'm working part time, but that job will end in May. It's difficult but I haven't given up.

I'm following you now!

My husband had to step down from his job as 911 director because the stress had his diabetes spiraling out of control.

Instead of being just a blogroll stalker, I've graduated to a Google Friends Connect stalker.

Kristin said...

I stalk you on twitter too.

I'm already a follower, now off to find you on twitter!

I am about to graduate, quitting my job going back to school in my 30s was the hardest thing I have done in a while! I'm writing my FINAL finals this week during the A to Z that is pretty hard too!
