25 days of giveaways…DAY 1!!!!!

I can't believe it it this time of year again! I can't believe this is the THIRD year of these giveaways! That is very exciting for me! It all started with a tiny idea in this mama's head; just a little something to help get a few of us through the first Christmas without our babies. It turned out to be so much bigger than I had imagined, and for that I am thankful. I am thankful for each and every one of you. Without the hosts and participants, none of this would happen, so, thank you, thank you, thank you! To me, these giveaways are a bit of joy that we can spread to one another as we honor and remember our beautiful babies, because without them, none of this would be. I am grateful for my girls, Sophia and Ellie, for many reasons, but one of them is for all the lovely people whom I have met here. Without all of you, I don't know where I would be.

Okay, enough with the sappy stuff...on to the giveaway!!!! If you read my last post, you saw a little hint about where today's giveaway would be...and it is RIGHT HERE!!

If you are new to my blog and story, you may not know that after I lost my girls I was inspired to create.  I began making hand stamped jewelry and haven’t stopped since!  It brings me peace and joy and I absolutely love it!  For today’s giveaway, I am offering a very special item from my etsy shop


I really adore this necklace.  I first made it for a very special boy’s mama.  If you are interested in reading more about this family, click here.  Make sure you have some tissue nearby though!  So, to enter this giveaway, leave a comment here and tell me if you plan on doing something to keep your baby extra close to your heart as you celebrate this Christmas Season.  I know they live in your hearts everyday, but I like to hear all the ways we include our little ones during special times like this.  Good luck and don’t forget to check back here tomorrow to see who the winner is and where the next giveaway is being held! xo

P.S.  If you are on face*book and want to like my page, you can see new designs and get coupon codes and sale info too!  You know, just in case you wanna!

25 days of giveaways

Last Sunday, I sent an e-mail to all those who said they would like to host a day. I haven't heard from many of you, so check your junk mail and if you don't see it e-mail me at I just want to make sure everyone gets the info and know when their day is!

On another note, today is the 25th. That means 2 years and 7 months without my girls. I'm so thankful to have them in my life, even though it is not in the capacity I wish they were in it. It's amazing to me how my grief has changed. I remember in the early days reading posts by other mothers who were further out from their loss. I would think that time would never help to heal my brokeness. However, it has. My girls are in my thoughts constantly. I see their memory box and sketch many times throughout the day. Today I put up their little Christmas tree. They are a part of my everyday life, but I still wish they were physically here.

25 days of giveaway????

Oh goodness am I a bad blogger!! I have been so busy and really just haven't had much new to write. Today I realized it was November. Now I knew it was November, but just hadn't thought much about what I should be doing to get ready for December! It will be here so soon! So, I'm just wondering who might be interested in hosting a giveaway in December. They will start on the first and end the 25th, that is if we get enough participants. If you're interested, please leave a comment here and your email address. If you don't know about the giveaways but would like to find out what they are, go to my posts from last December and you will see what a great thing this has been for the baby loss community. Happy November everyone!! Only 50 days till Christmas! :/
