THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED...Please check out M3Gemz for great products...
Today is a FUN day at TallMom. I LOVE LOVE it when I can give back to all my Bloggy friends. To celebrate my First Marathon, and in hopes of finding the solution to "I want to wear my race medal around everywhere...but..." I give you the Medal to Wear all Day Giveaway..
For my 30th birthday my friends Lynette and Tom purchased an AMAZING necklace to commemorate my finishing my first Marathon. Lynette loves to shop on Etsy.com. For those of you who have never shopped on Etsy, their mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers. To build a new economy and present a better choice: Buy, Sell, and Live Handmade. This is a site where you can purchase handmade items directly from the Artists. PRETTY SWEET!! Anything from baby dolls, paintings to jewelry this is a GREAT place to shop for unique gifts.
So what does this have to do with running?? Well... Darlene at My 3 Gemz has items in her store which are inspired by RUNNING.. and she has graciously offered to give a Tall Mom Bloggy reader one of her creations.. lets find out more about Darlene and My 3 Gemz...
I specialize in hand-stamped jewelry and one-of-a-kind artisan designs. I only use sterling silver, 14 kg and genuine gemstones. The hand-stamped jewelry designs are handcrafted by me. Please note that the differences in the finish and 'imperfections' such as floating letters not perfectly "typed" and the like, are part of the inherent character and charm of the piece and should not be considered defects.
And of course your next question is, "What will I win?" If you enter this Giveaway you will win this....
This necklace can be customized, mine says "26.2" at the bottom, you will have the opportunity to work with Darlene to create your own unique design (For example: 5K, Your Name, Tri, Ultra, etc...) Or if you LOVE one of Darlene's other amazing items in her shop, you can chose one item of $40 (or less) value.. (Guys this is a great chance for you too..)
