Grow Roots & a Giveaway...

i just want to say *thank you* to all your kind words of congratulations on my new adventure...

i haven't had a chance to really play with the new textures...

{between a oldest child turning 9, helping sew up a prolapsed steer, playing monkey man, having a heart attack when a horse went down with 2 of my kids, and herding cattle there hasn't been much time...sheesh..} ;0)

but i can honestly say that i think this is going to be florabella's best set yet!!...

so *thank you* dear girls, you are all SO amazing!..

and i have a little something for one lucky reader...

last week i was contact by lisa leonard...{i know!! eeee!! *love* her designs!!}

she is SO kindly offering a $50.00 gift certificate to one lucky reader!!...

how {fabulous} is that!! right in time for the holiday season!!..

i thought i would share with you a couple favorites...

each one is truly a work of art...and these are just a few of her designs...

the one that is {whispering} to my soul though is the {Grow Roots, Sprout Wings}...

lisa's description of the necklaces design is {stunning}...

"our grow roots, sprout wings necklace captures the beauty of stability and risk, making deep, life-long connections, and exploring new possibilities."

what a perfect reminder for a prairie girl on a creative journey...

not only does it take courage and strength to {sprout} wings but it also takes {roots}, a firm foundation and knowledge of where you wish to journey and who you are along the way...

what necklace or bracelet {whispers} to your soul??...

to be entered in the giveaway for a $50.00 gift certificate {only open to US and Canada}...

~simply leave me a comment...

~follow or let me know you are already a prairie girl...

~blog, tweet, or facebook for an additional entry...

{please leave a seperate comment for each entry, also please leave a link to your blog, tweet or facebook entry...*thanks*}

giveaway ends on Monday the 22nd at 5:00 p.m. {mst}...Good luck!!..

oh and one more thing...

lisa is offering all {faded prairie} readers 15% off their entire order to her site...

simply use the discount code fadedprairie {all lowercase and one word} when checking out...

i don't know about you, but this prairie girl is on her way to do some christmas shopping...enjoy!!....

{giveaway now closed...*thank you*}

So happy to have found your blog today...it is GORGEOUS. I think I could spend all morning here with my cup of coffee. :-) Thank you for introducing me to several new sites - I was not familiar with FloraBella before (sigh)...now I am motivated to try and figure out how to do textures! And Lisa Leonard's site is a place I would love to spend the day as well...her jewelry and photography is amazing.
