My First Giveaway.

a few of my little baubles.

I have been wanting to do a giveaway for a while, but sometimes the fear of the unknown stops me. I get caught up in the what if's and the how to's. It occurred to me today that it would really make me happy to give a ring away. And then it occurred to me that by not doing it...I'm screwing myself out of that very happiness! I'm going to just do it, so hang in there with me - I'll never learn or grow if I don't try. So here we go...leave a comment with your email and I will use a random number generator to pick a winner. Tell me your favorite color or two (not of the colors you see above, just your personal favorite colors), and something random about yourself that you love, by 7pm PST on February 9, 2010. I will pick a winner, and send her a lovely little Valentine treat from me!

My rings are very comfy, so even if you don't wear jewelry that often, throw you name in the hat. I think that you'll be pleasantly surprised. I've had many converts! They are worn by beauties from 13-88 (this I know for sure!).They've been worn everywhere from the beach, to coffee with a friend, to a day out shopping, to date night, to a fancy schmancy Museum Gala. And just to give you an idea of what they look like on, here is a picture. Boy do I need to get a hand model! - hence the small picture ;)

  1. they look comfy AND so stylin beautiful!!

    favourite colours include spring green, violet purple and sunshine yellow and one thing i love about myself is my enthusiasm :-)

  2. My favorite colors are clear red and clear turquoise. What I most randomly love about myself is my ability to come across as confident even when I am trembling inside (of course I can only pull this off for a short time!) ;-)

  3. Love the rings! And way to go on not holding yourself back from doing things that make you happy. :) My favorite colors (in order) are orange, green, blue, and pink. I am a complete goofball and I LOVE that about myself. For example...I sing/talk in a loud opera style when Im in a really good mood.

  4. I have loved red for a long time - so much so that a friend dubbed me "the shiny red type" - and lately, I've been really excited by turquoise. I love myself for being able to keep it together even when there is panic and sadness and frustration.

    My email address is tooloudasolitude at gmail dot com!

  5. Blue is most definitely my favorite color. What I love about myself is my patience in stressful situations.


    Happy 1st giveaway :)

  6. They are so pretty! Thank you for giving us the chance to win one. My favourite colours are purple & turquoise. I love that I'm feeling more courageous than ever before.

  7. beautiful!

    my favorite colors at the moment are robin's egg blue, sweet pale pink, and light green. spring-y colors, i think!


  8. Well, you know my favorite color is RED, but I already have that color! I would have to say that blue/black would be my next favorite. Maybe pink, surprise me if I'm picked;), I love them all!!

    You know, it is hard for me to come up with something that I "love" about myself - it's the libra in me, and this part almost kept me from entering this giveaway. But here we go - I love being a good friend, someone you can always count on;) Was that too easy???

  9. How delightful! And kudos to you for overcoming your fear to bring happiness to both yourself and someone else. My favorite colors are forest green and red. And something random about myself that I love? I can order coffee in eight languages, though not all at once.

  10. Beautiful rings! I'm so glad I popped by & good to see that "Not Pretty or Perfect" really got you writing :)

    "Red" has been finding me since the beginning of the year and I guess that's something I like about myself: that I'm open to new things finding me and I'll embrace them.

    Thanks for the chance to win!
