Awesome businesses of the day:

Love, love, love LifeVerse Jewelry! Watch the video to find out why (and to see the Dayspring prize the trivia winner will receive!)

LifeVerse jewelry has offered to donate this beautiful sterling silver "Whispers of Faith" bracelet. It is custom made, so it will come with your choice of charm and three message beads.
Christine, the owner of LifeVerse Jewelry, packages the jewelry with utmost care. Mine came all wrapped up pretty in a bow with a case to keep the bracelet. One of her custom bracelets would make a perfect graduation gift. Go check out LifeVerse Jewelry and see all of the other amazing bracelets she creates - which one is your favorite?

The second prize featured today is a lovely pin made by Kimba of A Soft Place To Land. She creates these cute, unique, and classy pins that you are just going to love. The brown one is my favorite! Check out her etsy shop to see the variety of pins she has - if you win, which pin would you choose?

This super cool denim skirt from Christa-Taylor is another fabulous prize you can win. The Long Sailor Skirt, my favorite, is a perfect addition to your wardrobe! Also, right now Christa is also holding a Design Your Dream Dress Contest - check it out and let me know what you think! To learn more about Christa and her modest fashions, read my interview with her here.

I visited the Life Verse jewelry and fell in love. If I had my pick, I would choosez: LifeVerse™ Scripture Bracelet with Custom Words and Sterling Silver Beads and perhaps the custom saying would be: Waiting for Lily. She is the daughter we are waiting to adopt from China and have waited more than 3 years already.

Reborn said...

I decided not to participate in this giveaway because I really don't need the sign (cool though it is!). However, it's been a blast digging through your archives! I LOOOVE the wedding pics! You are stunning.

Jacquie said...

As far as the trivia questions, since you are picking a winner by who answers the most questions, I am emailing you my responses to allow everyone else the fun of figuring out the answers. So please check you email. Thanks!

What I love most about the Christa Taylor long sailor skirt is that it comes in small, medium and large versus 6, 8, 10 etc. That sounds comfy even on those bloated days!

A House FULL of Grace said...

I love that you are giving away Susan Bradrick's '24 hours is all you get' cd. We know the Bradrick's personally through Washington State's Christian Heritage Homeschool org. and they are amazing people. This particular message was perspective-changing for me.

And yes, I would be honored to have you link to my post after your party is over. Thanks for thinking that highly of it! It's just a 'God working out' thing.

Blessings to you today,

What a fun idea having people search thru your archives!!!

The Live Verse jewelry is AWESOME!

I've been eyeing Kimba's Big Betty in raspberry for quite some time!!

What a fun party!

I visited the LifeVerse Jewelry website. My favorite item there is the Scripture Bracelet (Jeremiah 29:11)- Pink Vintage Rose.

I subscribed to your blog.

I put your button on my blog's sidebar.


LivingforGod said...

I visited Kimba's etsy shop and I like the Big Betty Flower Brooch (Rich Red) the best.


LivingforGod said...

I would love to win the Long Sailor Skirt. I love wearing long skirts (down to my ankles). Christa Taylor has a variety of modest clothing (however, some of them are not as modest as I would like to see :)).


quelleheure4 said...

I read this post and bookmarked it to come back that day and then forgot. You had some great questions!

Breezy said...

Isn't that skirt just too cute? Perhaps when I have more time to sew (after grad. open house) I will make a host of skirts. Too fun!

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

Just found this site and thought it might be useful to chat to people who are trying to accomplish the same as me!

I spend too much of my life on the internet and look forward to chatting to you all and picking up and sharing ideas along the way!
