Back to School Giveaway

Handcrafted ceramic beads by Gaea (http://www.gaea.cc)
That time of year is quickly approaching.  Sending your kids off on the bus for the first time or the fifth--it's still difficult to start back into the routine of school.  All the homework; early to bed and early to rise; after school activities; shuttling children here and there.  We all will long for the lazy days of summer come September or in my case the end of August--the kids in our district are going back to school before Labor Day this year.  I'm sure many of you are in the same boat.  So whether you are new to the back to school routine or an old hat at it, I thought I would offer a little giveaway to ease your pain or help at least with the aching heart if you are sending off a little one for the first time.

This 7.5 inch bracelet is handcrafted by Hammi Jammi Jewelry using ceramic beads from Gaea Handmade.  The ceramic is highlighted with silver plated daisy spacers, a pewter toggle clasp and bee charm.  I added the bee charm for a touch of whimsy--the colors in all these beads are perfect to usher in the Fall yet stay reminiscent of the Summer months.  The bee reminds me of all the bees that are on my sunflowers!!

Entering this giveaway is easy.  

1) Leave me a comment telling me why you would love to win this giveaway.  Would you keep it for yourself or give it to someone? (1 entry)

2) This one is very important--share this contest with others and get them to participate.  You can use any social media you would like--Blog, Twitter, Facebook--Just leave me an additional comment telling me you did this. (1 entry)

3) Become a fan of Hammi Jammi Jewelry on Facebook (1 entry)

Contest begins Monday, August 8, 2011 midnight EST and will go until August 22, 2011 midnight EST!

Thanks for participating.

Lubna said...

Strangely I found the colours of the beads, as a collection, calming. The bees remind me of open spaces of sunshine, the blue and white beads of the sky, clouds and the sole brown bead, the earth. I would gift it to a colleague who is in need of cheering up.

I would love to win this so that I could tell my hubby he got it for me for our 5 year anniversary, which was yesterday. Due to being disabled and laid off a year and a half ago, we only have one income coming in. I know, depressing but true. So, my husband couldn't get me anything (not that I need anything but him :)). It is beautiful and I would keep it for me, from him.

I'd love to say I'd give this away, but I would SOOOO keep it for myself. I'm in the middle of a bunch of transitions and I like to think of myself as sort of bee-like: busy, working hard, but keeping sweet rewards in mind!
