i declare charms! Giveaway

It is Monday..I am not a fan of Mondays sooooo every Monday during the Month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Tall Mom will be hosting Giveaways. The Sponsor of the Giveaway today is i declare!

Here is a note from Annette the owner on the "About Us" section of her website:

i declare! started from a love for things simple. Simple styles, simple inspirations, simple moments in life.

My loves are simple and each is an inspiration to me. My children, my husband, and my running. I love being able to wear personalized jewelry that shows who I am. It is a great way to talk about my children, races I have run, and truths I try to live by. Things that matter most.
Because it represents what is most important to you, each charm is made by hand with the utmost attention to detail. These are not mass produced, and every charm is cut, stamped, and polished by me- so each one looks unique.


I hope that you find inspiration in what you love, and will enjoy keeping that close to you with your new i declare! jewelry.

Annette Allen

Thanks to Annette and i declare! you all have the opportunity to win a BEAUTIFUL necklace with the words "Live to run run to live."

Jo Lynn said...

Goodness! So many rules. ;)
Anybody that knows me, knows I LITERALLY RUN TO LIVE. History shows, I don't get my endorphins through exercise, I relapse into my addiction. I relapse into my addiction on more time, I will probably die.
On a lighter note........ great stuff!

Marlene said...

Lacey Nicole said...

okay i am back. the links still don't work but i just found the website through google.

LOVE THIS: "Run Happy" Stay Put- No Slide Bracelet $50
Starting at: $50.00
This incredible bracelet can be worn all the time as it will not slip and slide up your arm. With the "stay put" nature of this bracelet, you can even wear it running without it bugging you!

a bracelet you can run in??? sign me up! i am skeptical but def want to try it. plus it is beautiful and i love the words, so i would obviously wear it not-running as well.

my one complaint: PRICEY.

Lacey Nicole said...

i am at the blog, but darn it missed the sale!! :) was only thru oct 11. i can't find the "follow" option?!?!?! how do i follow them?????? does my effort count??????????

i just see "click here to order" or "create your own personalized necklace today" links.

Lacey Nicole said...

my xmas list: now that i have 3 new necklaces, i want a bracelet ! just like the stay put "run happy" one i posted above about.

Lacey Nicole said...

actually... if i didn't get run happy i would want "believe" written on my bracelet. or "believe in the run" or "stay strong" or "RUN HARD"

Lacey Nicole said...

i tweeted/blogged about the giveaway!!!!

okay i am officially "fully" entered :) wahooooo.

Bernadette said...

I just emailed you to be added to your email list... and thanks very much for the comment on my blog and your speedwork recomendation, I appreciate it!!

Thanks annette for hosting such an awesome giveaway! Eveything is so cute, but I have to say I think the believe bracelt is cute. And it has a powerful message too!

Michal said...

Michal said...

On my jewlery christmas list I would love to get a new necklace or two, and maybe a new charm for my charm bracelet that my mom bought me for my birthday this year!

Michal said...

If I decided to order one of these necklaces I think I would just get my name on a big one... Michal is not a common name I actually have never met another person with it. Plus ive never gotten to have anything cute with my name on it. I would also get a mini charm to go with it saying "xoxo"

First entry ... I like that they have all of the navigation options at the top of the page, including testimonials! It's always difficult to know if you want to shop online, not having used a shop before.

That said, I love the Eternity Link Bracelet!

Thank you for this giveaway!

On my jewelry Christmas list ... a delicate cross pendant/necklace and a mom charm bracelet.

Thank you again!

~ Cee ~ said...

If I could have anything engraved on a necklace, it would probably be just one word: Blessed. I often am caught up in all the ways I wish my life were better, easier, etc., and I need to take time to look at all the things I have to be thankful for.

Thank you again!

The author of www.tallmomontherun.com has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: No one knows the origins of their metal coat hangers. Thanks for the info.
