the "just because" giveaway {!!} (closed)

Just because it's been long promised on this blog--and just because it's time to party, readers! Three amazing sponsors are giving away items from their business/shops! {thank you. :)} Here's a bit about each sponsor, what they do, and what YOU are getting.

 Bree Holloway <--see blog

--who is she?

I'm a quirky little person. As in, I'm five foot two, wear pink, eat chocolate, drink coffee, draw, blog design, snap pictures, listen to bagpipe music, play with my pointe shoes, wear high heels, pretend to be good at fashion, read my Bible, pray, love to spend time with Jesus, act like a dork, have picnics during the golden hour, drool over lovely and expensive cameras, sing horribly but have fun anyway, smile shyly, dance in the rain, take dorky self-pictures, and then eat chocolate again. :) 

--about her shop:

Aeronautical Graphics was established in 2010, and started off as nothing more than a 2 follower site with a few tutorials, and some very basic free designs. I have been so blessed as to now be proud of my little site, and the graphics I produce, instead of wishing they were like others I had seen. The Lord has blessed me so much on this journey, and I can't believe I've made it this far! 

--what she's offering:

1 free blog design from Aeronautical Graphics! Bree offers a wide range of packages, including complete template makeovers, blog buttons, signatures, headers, etc. Her work is gorgeous, professional, clean. Plus Bree's a really neat person--a gal with a beautiful spirit, spunk, and someone I'm quickly becoming good friends with. (in fact, I'm looking forward to working with her myself soon. The all-new LPSoaS coming right up!)

 

 
{examples of Bree's work}


--who is she?

I'm a 27 year old, vintage jewelry loving, home decorating, spray painting, purse and shoe collecting, crazy aunt to one nephew and a niece on the way. I love color, puppies, IKEA, home makeover blogs, flowers, clean counter tops, and 90 degree weather. Unfortunately, I live in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio, so I don't get much of the latter! 

--about her shop:

My shop is geared toward vintage inspired, romantic jewelry. I love using flowers, LOTS of color, and unique items to bring happiness to my jewelry. I look at every necklace I create as a little piece of myself, and I hope their new owners love them as much as I do.

Lauren

--who is she? 

I'm a homeschooled, Christian, senior in high school who loves music, tea, and reading. I'm the third of seven children. 

--about her shop:

I recently discovered my love of jewelry making and opened this shop. {FlowerchildJewelsI also have an Etsy shop in which I sell doll clothes. 

--what she's offering: 

(Lauren says) I would like to give away my Jasmine Earrings. They are sweet little lavender and silver dangles and perfect for Spring and Summer. All of my earrings are on silver ear wires to make them safe for sensitive ears. :) 

Jasmine Earrings. Pretty lilac glass bead earrings on sterling wires for Spring.

Item description (as listed in shop):  The Jasmine earrings feature a beaded dangle of lilac beads with silver accents.

Ok, so these are soo dainty and adorable! I could see pairing them with a Regency gown for an English Country Dance Ball--yet they are absolutely perfect for every day wear.

  6. I've known about Bree's contribution to this giveaway for a bit of time — one of the advantages to having a sister who is also one of the sponsors ;) — but I didn't know the other prizes would be so lovely! I don't think I am allowed to enter for Bree's design, but I shall still place my name in the bowl for either the earrings or necklace . . .

    I would probably just order a header from Bree.

    My favorite item in Brittany's shop is the pair of aqua rose earrings.

    My favorite item in Lauren's shop is the Edith earrings.

    God bless you!

    From Bree's blog, I'd love the Snazzy Girl package. I would love the blog design (should I win it) to have the main colors be yellow and blue (at this point).

    From Brittany's shop I like either the Red Crystal Earrings or the Antique Copper Leafy Tree Earrings. I couldn't decide which. :)

    And then from Lauren's shop I like either the Juliette Earrings or the Jasmine Earrings. :)

  56. I'd love a pretty custom header by Bree for my new food and craft blog!

    At BrittanyChavers' shop it was sooo hard to pick a favorite but I think I would have to choose the Lace White Rose Headband.

    My favorite piece at FlowerChildJewels is The Emma bracelet - such a pretty color!
