Kristin said...

Sarah Mae, these giveaways are AWESOME!

My favorite Mattieleas set is: "Dark Green Beaded Necklace and Earring Set-NE00938701". I'm really impressed with this jewelry- so cute and affordable!

As for the art, I love the one with the red door...mostly because it looks EXACTLY like the red front door on my new house that we're moving into in a few weeks. :)

Kristin said...

Okay, I also finally posted your icon/link/button on Beautifully Adorned. You throw one GREAT party!! :)

Composing Hallelujahs said...

Yelowflower said...

I would have to say that I love the bamboo and epoxy necklace, it is just too kewl!

Kristen, The Pajama Mama said...

I love that tourquoise (sp?) and brown beaded ring-and oh my goodness her prices are amazing-even the shipping! i'm bookmarking Mattieleas!
My favorite Studio JRU pieces were her original Christian crosses-very rustic yet still very beautiful.
And I think the white earrings up for grabs from Our Daily Chocolate are my favorite in their shop, too. I would love to wear them with a mod print smock I'm working on!
Wish I had seen the prize list last week, I ordered 24 hours and Desperate Housewives...just last week! oh well, i never win anything, and both items seem worth what i paid! Thanks for some great recommendations!

The Queen Mommy said...

I really like Mattieleas God's Love stretch bracelet! And the mother of pearl bracelet too. And the red & white earrings in your post are TOO adorable!!!

christinnjon said...

I love the piece they're giving away, but I also like the "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord".

christinnjon said...

I tweeted for today. (Does that count?!)

Jacquie said...

I love your older post about losing your standards about drinking coffee - pour me another cup because I can so relate to it. I think I might possibly be able to live on it.

I also really love your poetry and wish I had the opportunity to hear you speak your "slam poetry". Maybe that would be a great idea for your next vlog. As I was going through your older posts the other day, I came across a poem that you wrote that really touched my heart. It was about carrying a baby in the womb. I wrote it down so I could find it again but lost that darn piece of paper - and I used your search feature and still do not find it. When you have time (in a couple of weeks), could you direct me to it if you know where it is? Happy Day Everyone!

Buildeth Her House said...

I would be blessed by any of the prizes that you are offering.

irishmcmommy said...

LOVE the Mattieleas jewelry and SUPER SWEET prices! I will be ordering some things! I love the French Wire Earrings with Dyed Rondell Bead - for $5! WOW Sarah Mae, I have added so many new websites to my favorites lately from your picks!
