Wednesday

Look What I Got!!

*UPDATED* Congrats to Mrs. 007 for winning some fabulous etsy jewelry!  The rest of you scoot over there and be nice to yourself!

{Etsy Jewelry Giveaway Today!}

I've tackled nearly all my Christmas shopping.

I've gotten a sewing kit for my son (!) and a rocket set for my daughter and a couple of other small gifts from their wish lists. We're not afraid to cross those gender lines around here.

Santa's bringing a Nintendo DS for my older two and a kitchen for the toddler.

Because he's nice like that.  And loaded, according to my kids.

And I had no intention of getting myself a gift. 

But I couldn't resist.

When I started getting this post together to feature my next Mom store, I got that tingly feeling because I realized it was jewelry. From Etsy.  

Let me guess...you've got the tingles too?

Look what I found when I went to her store:

We Are THAT Family blog Necklace

Um, yeah. Like I could have resisted that temptation!

And I love it. I've earned this badge of honor. I think.

 Creations by Chara offers gorgeous hand-stamped jewelry. It's fun and unique and hellooo....custom!

Of course, I love this for my cat! And this copper oval necklace is adorable!

She's offering a $25 gift certificate to a reader today! So, off you go, look around and tell me what you would pick out for yourself, I mean, your mom or sister!

I'll choose a random winner (other than myself) on Thursday afternoon! 

Don't forget to shop Etsy and buy handmade this holiday season!  For more great tips, visit Works for Me Wednesday.

I would definitely get the "Big Sister - Little Sister" necklaces for my girls...so CUTE!!! Or...the Cameo Choker for me. :)

Grateful for Grace said...

Oooh! Lots to like. My heart skipped a beat at the Sisters necklaces, though. I'd have to get four, but it'd be great:
Big Sis, Little Sis, Kid Sis, Baby Sis. That's what we call our four daughters.

FUN!!
Oh, random number chooser, pick #1!!!

Grateful for Grace said...

I mean #2!

Tammy said...

I like the personalized Christmas ornaments. So cute!

Janelle said...

I'm in agreement that the Big Sister-Little Sister would be the best choice - my girls would adore those!! Thanks for the chance!!

Angie said...

I love the necklaces, though I would probably go with something custom.

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Karen said...

Oh, I would get that scrolled heart pendant. It is loverly.

Shane said...

I would choose the crown necklace. My husband calls me his "little princess" so I think it would be perfect as a gift for.... me!

Norse, Jesica, and Boden said...

Oh! The Brass Filigree Butterfly...it would of course be a gift from "santa" :o)

jczellar said...

I like the foiled hearts necklace. I'd love to put a heart of each different color on to signify each of my kids, but a single heart will do, too :-)

Morgan said...

I love your custom circle necklace and, also, the couples love necklace. So cute!

Joy @ Five J's said...

I really like the copper oval necklace, mistake and all!

I think I'd go for the Big sis Little Sis necklaces for my nieces (or maybe for my sister and I)...or the custom ornament...lots of neat things to think about.

Happy Mommy said...

I love the custom Christmas ornament! I think I would have something made for my grandma, my grandparents anniversary would have been on the 16th, 58 years. I think that would brighten her day!

I love the sister necklace, crown and guitar pick! These are so cute!
Ally

Shannon @ Gabi's World said...

How cool! However I think it would just sound like I am full of myself if I wore a necklace saying "Gabi's World." It sounds like she revolves around me or something. lol Yours is perfect though.

Pamelotta said...

I like the butterfly that says FREE. But I think I'd ask her if she could put the clasp in the back.

Great site!

Heidi said...

So funny.... I have been looking at all the custom necklaces on etsy for my sister that is having a baby this month. So pick me pick me :) Thanks for the chance to win!

Wanda said...

I can't decide. I have a dear friend that is at Riley Hospital right this moment... her college age son is dying with cancer.
I would love to honor her with something special with his name on it.
This has been a rough year....and she is barely hanging on.

Last night....over 100 students/friends from PURDUE came to the hospital to visit him. He is so loved....and will be missed by many.

I would want to design something special just for her.

Amy said...

LOVE esty! My sister would be thrilled with the Gunmetal Cameo for Christmas

MommaJen said...

Erica said...

Oooh, how to choose? I like the cascade earrings for me, but I know my mom would love the brassy leaves earrings. The immature person/middle school teacher in me laughs when I see "Brass Filigree Butt..." I know it stands for butterfly, but who's purchasing brass filigree behinds around here??? :)
