Goody Goody Giveaway

Happy Monday!

Thanks for stopping by today, thanks for stopping by any day.   I really love (and sometimes can never believe) that there are more than 3 people, people who aren't even related to me, who read my blog.

One of the first non-related people to read my blog is one of my favorite Guam bloggers, Amy.  Not only is Amy one of my favorite Guam bloggers, she also happens to be one of my favorite people on Guam.  She is kind, patient and I don't think she has a snarky bone in her body (which is good for me, since I probably have enough for both of us).  In addition to all of her great personal qualities, Amy is a ballerina.  When I was little, I soooo wanted to be a ballerina.  I took ballet for years, until I had an unfortunate run in with a fish aquarium and my figure became less girlish and more womanly at the ripe old age of 10.  But I have remained enamored with toe shoes, tulle, foot chalk, Sugar Plum Fairies, Black Swans and the movie The Turning Point.  My inner 12 year old is secretly in awe of having a friend who is a real ballerina.

Unfortunately, Guam isn't the ballet capital of the Pacific.  While there are some opportunities for Amy to dance here, she's kind of had to take the wool out of her toe shoes and hang them up for a bit.  That's the bad news.  The good news is she has found another creative outlet- she has started designing jewelry.  She uses gorgeous stones and her designs are earthy, yet feminine, and they are very original.  You can see all of Amy's current pieces at her Etsy store, http://www.etsy.com/shop/windingwirejewelry.

In fact, as a thank you for reading my blog and visiting her Etsy store,  I will be giving away this great pair of earrings...
These quartz crystal and silver-plate earrings hang approximately 2 inches from sterling silver ear wires

To enter the contest, all you have to do is visit Amy's Etsy store, Winding Wire Jewelry.  Then come back here and leave me a comment.  The contest will be open until 11:00 p.m. Central Standard Time (see how nice I am to not make you figure out Chamorro Standard Time?) on Friday, April 9. (To give you some insight into the difficulty calculating ChST- that will be 9:00 a.m. Saturday, April 10 here in Guam. Are you confused?).  I'll randomly select a winner from any comments I receive.

Her jewelry is a lot of fun - I love lapus lazuli and the mossy agate earrings are really pretty, too. Her prices are great - I have a date night coming up, hmmmm.
