{get excited...green beans and a giveaway}


green beans


Yesterday Madelyn turned 8 months old (my baby girl is turning in to such a big girl) and to celebrate, we gave her some green beans for dinner. At first she was less than convinced that this was an acceptable "birthday treat". However, it did not take long for her to realize how fun it was to smash them with her fingers and chomp on them with her gums. She ate nearly a cup of green beans! I was impressed! She has become so curious lately about what we are eating and less enthused about her own food. I don't blame her. Some of that stuff is just plain gross (yes, I try at least a drop of everything I feed her and yes, my husband thinks that is disgusting) I do not want to make the switch too early (especially considering she is still toothless), but we may be trying some more foods out soon.

and a give away

For nearly a month I have had the same thing around my neck every single day (not that that's a shocker...when I find something that I like...I stick with it for the long haul). Nearly every day, someone tells me how pretty it is too. Remember when I found all of these goodies at First Monday in Canton that I had to share with everyone?? Well, now I really get to share one of them with you (and I am super excited about it)!

Courtney Brown, the creator of all the amazing custom pieces at Daisy Smiles Custom Jewelry wants you to have something just as special to hang around your neck...or on your finger...or to give to someone that you love!

That's right.

She is giving away a $50
gift certificate to one of YOU towards the hand stamped piece(s) of your choice!

Courtney only uses high quality materials and hand stamps each piece herself. There are so many possibilities and Courtney will work with you to get the perfect piece you are looking for!

Here are some of the fabulous possibilities and ways you could spend your $50 gift certificate:
Heart, Circle, & Dog Tag Pendant Combination
Circle Pendant with Heart cutout and Chain
Peek-a-boo Pendant
(2 concave circle discs with charm in the middle)
One Inch Circle Pendant
Copper & Silver Mixture Pendant

The possibilities are endless and the personalization is totally up to you!

So now I bet you are wondering how to get it on the fun??

Here are the ways to enter to win $50 to Daisy Smiles Custom Jewelry:

  1. Leave a comment on my blog saying what piece of jewelry you like the best (I know...that would be tough for me to pick just one too) or what you would order if you won!

  2. Become a fan of Daisy Smiles on Facebook and leave an additional comment saying you did.

  3. Become a google follower of Daisy Smiles Custom Jewelry Blog and leave an additional comment saying you did.

  4. And for those of you that really want it bad...blog about the giveaway and link back to this page and leave an additional comment saying you did!

Make sure to leave your email address in your comment so that I will know who to contact (you don't have to have a blog to win). The giveaway will close at 11:59pm on Thursday night a winner will be chosen on Friday using a random number generator from Random.org so get busy and enter already!

Oh and don't be afraid to just scoot on over to Daisy Smiles and order something!!

(Just in case you are wondering...I am not benefiting from this giveaway in any way shape or form...I just happen to LOVE my necklace and want everyone else to have the chance to have an amazing piece of high quality, custom jewelry of their own. This is my first ((and might be my only)) giveaway and it's only because I love Daisy Smiles Jewelry that much!!)

  1. I LOVE the piece that she made for you with you and your husband's initials and your little girl's name on the round one much like the first picture. I would get that for my friend who is expecting a little boy in August!

  39. If were to be the lucky winner, I would have to go with the one with the dog tag since my husband is a Marine. They really all are beautiful and amazingly reasonable. I am considering the rings for myself as well and would love to get my mom and mother-in-law necklaces for Christmas. :) Thanks for pointing me this way! -Sherri Bankston
