(GIVEAWAY!)A Little Discipline, Courage and Strength, Focus, Whatever really...

Today I'm reviewing my own stuff!

I have an etsy shop and I just sort of fell into it because it turns out I'm pretty passionate about it. It's called Inspire Me, Chic. (You can find it up there on my header bar up there, too.)

One day (ok, there were many days) I needed discipline. I need a reminder to myself that I was training for something and that I couldn't miss workouts and I didn't really need that burger.

I also really wanted something to wear that wouldn't die when I worked out.

And that would match with everything.

Like, a tutu:

Whatever I train in:
Photobucket

And stuff I like to wear to go out in (like with wine involved)

And that I'd never have to take off because I'm super lazy about that stuff.

So I found me some "discipline" in the form of an affirmation ring and figured out that if I put it all nice on a leather necklace with a clasp, it would work out quite nice for me and look pretty cute, too and last forever and ever (or at least close). In fact, I found "focus" and "strength" and "courage," and I found cute little charms that say things like "I need more cowbell." And they do all of the above.

And it became a thing. I love making these necklaces, but most of all, I love what they actually do for me, which is to remind me of what I really am needing at the moment and it really does that for me. Truly.

I think they work for everyone and there is a message for every occasion and they work perfect as gifts for graduation, for motherhood, for someone who's training, studying, grieving, celebrating, or for no reason at all. Each necklace is nicely wrapped in a purple organza pouch and I'll include a note to your recipient (no charge) if you message me about it.

I have quite a few to choose from so today I'm giving one away to one of you! All you have to do is leave a comment below with which one you like or even which message you'd like to see because there is a very good likelihood I have it and have not posted it. (I have way more than the picture, so make sure you go to the shop and look around! For a second entry, tweet about the giveaway.

Two entries! Please leave a comment for each. Contest will end Friday, August 20th at 8 p.m. ET. and I'll announce the winner on Saturday. And then, when the contest is over, I'll do free shipping for a week after that (you just have to make sure you message me so I can deduct it before you pay!)

I like the "Your Wish Come True" necklace...too cool!

Angie Bishop said...

I tweeted about this giveaway!! I really wanted to win at the twitter party!

Melissa said...

Oooh, yay! Definitely must enter this giveaway. :) I think my favorite is the "Your Wish Come True" necklace. It pretty much covers all the bases of the things that are important to me.

Angie Bishop said...

I had to tweet first so I could get an entry in and then keep shopping!! I think I would like the courage necklace. So many times I have to remind myself to have the courage to keep going even though I am afraid of the pain or that I won't have the courage to put myself out there. Trying new things takes courage take the chance that I might fail.
Very cool pendant!!

I still like the Run Girl Run one best! Maybe it will remind me to go run!

Skinny Sushi said...

I LOVE the good luck charm, though I'd probably figure out how to wear it as a bracelet...

If I were to win I'd want the "strength" one for my niece. Cancer sucks and she could use all the "help" she can get.

Leslie said...

If I won, I would want the "courage" necklace for my friend Cathy. She is in the midst of a crisis at her job and I know it would really help her.

I like "courage." Well, I like them all but I think I need more courage than anything else.

Barb said...

I totally need the cowbell one....or you need to make a "Bike Girl Bike", since I'm most decidedly not a runner!

I like the passion one the best. Best to live life with passion, I think! :-)

jen said...

a toss up between "run girl run" or "focus" ~~> I think I need both right now!!

LWH said...

I love these, and I want one, but I have a question: can you do them with a slightly longer than 16" length for those of us who haven't quite had DISCIPLINE long enough to be able to sport a 16" necklace just yet? Fat girls need encouragement, too!!!

Audrey said...

Run Girl Run and Courage are my 2 faves. :)

I need strength or courage. I'm so nervous for the 6K coming up every little bit would help.

Jessi said...

Geesh, how do I choose just one when I need "Discipline", "Strength", "Focus" and "Passion" all at the same time and I really like the "Run Girl Run" charm.

I love the purple sneaker. You know I am running with Team in Training but my mom has lupus and that is another cause I support. This is perfect!

Catie said...

I so want the discipline one! I also want the courage one, but I think discipline is what I need right now!
