Balance...a Lisa Leonard Giveaway

Balance has so many meanings.

I think there is nothing cuter then a little girl attemping to achieve "a state of bodily equilibrium"...

...or perhaps you are more drawn to the meaning "A stable mental or psychological state; emotional stability."

Or perhaps "Balance" is not really your "word" at all.

Maybe your word is "grace" or "hope" or "story" or "promise" or "mustard".

That's the amazing thing about words. And a word of your own is what I am offering in this great Lisa Leonard Giveaway.

Lisa contacted me to see if I would do a giveaway for her and after I quit hyperventilating into a paper bag from excitement I thought and thought and picked her "New Word of the Year" necklace for a prize.

And then she amazingly asked me what word I would like so she could send me one as well.

It is lovely. And graceful. And the chain is magical. And I know you will think so, too!

The winner of this giveaway will receive this necklace customized with their own word...whatever that might be!

Drawing will be held Friday, March 12 at 8:00 AM MST.
You can earn four chances at this great necklace as follows:

#1 You must be a follower of my blog. Please leave one comment letting me know you are!

#2 Leave a comment with the word you would choose for your customized necklace.

#3 Visit Lisa's blog by clicking here and tell her you are entering my giveaway. This is actually a bonus for you because her blog is lovely...filled with grace and warmth! Just let me know you did in a separate comment!

#4 Visit Lisa's online store by clicking here and telling me which other item you would choose for yourself!

By entering all these things separately it allows Mr. Random Integer to look at four different entries for you!

And it allows me to feel wildly popular so I can walk around wishing I had picked "SuperStar" for my word!

And it keeps my whole system in harmonious balance.

And that's enough reasons.

But on the other hand if no-one enters then I can just enter myself and be the only person in the drawing and win another word.

So yea, that's it. Just disregard all the "how to win stuff" and although I won't feel popular then at least I'll have another word to wear...maybe I would get the word "schmalance"...for those off days! You know what I mean?

Sigh...

PS. AND if you can't wait to see if you won Lisa is offering a pair of earrings free with purchase on her blog right now. If you sign up for her newsletter you also get a coupon for 15% off your first purchase!

Hey Jenny! Awesome giveaway! I am a follower!

Andrea said...

Is "rockstarmama" one word? Just kidding! I'd choose create.

Vicki said...

Wow, that took awhile...so much to see and too many choices. But I think I'd like the 'My Heart Necklace' the best...or maybe the 'Starry Heart' one...
See, I'm bad at picking just one thing. BTW, love the pics of your little balancer, she's so cute!

OK, all the fingers are folded back so I'm done :P

Thanks for this Jenny!

It would be a toss up between the heart strings necklace and the double heart cuff bracelet.

I thought I already was a follower :) but then I realized it was because I had you in my sidebar links. I with you all the way now.

Aunt lodi said...

Mo is a doll!!!!!!!!!

Melinda Cornish said...

Melinda Cornish said...

my word is lunacy...no, just kidding...I would like you to pick one for me if I win.......

Melinda Cornish said...

I had a visit at lis's blog and signed on in....

Melinda Cornish said...

I love bracelets so that is right where I went...I love the double heart cuff and I would put my moms, my spouse and my grandsons name on it......thanks Jenny!

Holly said...

I love her necklaces...keep hoping she'll be at the farm chicks show. Wouldn't that be great???
I am a follower and I would love to be entered into this drawing!!! How exciting that you were chosen especially for this, and that you get a necklace too!!! What fun!!

Holly said...

wow, it's so hard to think of just one word....!!!! I think maybe the word HOPE. A reminder that no matter what is going on in my life, I always have the hope and the promise that God be with me through anything and everything. I can't imagine life without hope!

Holly said...

Okay, I left a comment on Lisa's blog and still have one more to do?? I feel like I'm trying to hog it all!!!! but if I win, it's worth it!!!

Holly said...

Last, and hardest, comment...which one would I chose? This is torture!!! I can't decide! My four favs are:
the family tree
mama
the heart shaped one (forget the name)
jumble of charms
Even if I don't win, I'm determined to have one of these someday soon!!!
Thanks for offering this special gift!
Blessings!

Steph said...

Do I have to pick just one word? I think it would be "wonder." Also a Chinese character like for "love, blessing, grace, or righteousness" would be cool.

Steph said...

If I had to choose only one thing from her shop it would be the "fly free" necklace.

Steph said...

I left a comment on Lisa's blog letting her know I was entering.

Martha said...

I love your thoughts on words...that is really great and those cute pictures!

The word "story" on a necklace is such a great idea

Theresa said...

Oh my, I have to hurry and go do all the other things to get entered in this giveaway! I am a follower, you know! Have a blessed day dear Jenny!

Theresa said...

OK, hard choice but the "vintage frames necklace" would be my second pick! woohoo

Theresa said...

OK, now I visited her cute blog and left a comment that YOU sent me! Anything else dear Jenny? Have a blessed day!

My name is PJ. said...

I'm sooooo in this one, Matlock. I jumped through every single hoop. ;)

I also think the large link charm bracelet is groovy.

And of course, you're the grooviest...not that that should sway you one way or the other....although I am standing to your right, as you look north, so if you wanted to lean just a little more this way......

Does that count for two since I was so nice? huh? does it?

VictoriaS said...

Jenny, I visited Lisa's blog! If I were choosing something else, I would choose the pewter heart wall hanging. I'm being sentimental because dh and I have our anniversary this week!

VictoriaS said...

Deciding on a word is tough. I've got it narrowed down to two and will hopefully know by the time I get done with this sentence ............ok, nope, not yet......still deciding, I think, I would go with...........ok, I'm going with MEMORIES

The Muse said...

I adore the shots of your Balancing Princess. Often we are so busy looking at that which surrounds us...to see where we are, in the present. That equilibrium can be achieved...if we let our inner self guide us... :) If you are anything like me...I have to close my eyes sometimes...to make the first steps!

EVA SB said...

Hi I'm Eva SB. Thanks for this lovely giveaway.

Kimberly said...

I am already a follow...cute necklace.

My word

Vita (life)

EVA SB said...

Whenever I'm asked to think of a word
supercalifragilisticexpialidocious immediately springs to mind.
I loved Mary Poppins as a child and it's a crazy word that seems to be bursting with the joy of life.
But obviously that won't fit :0)

There are so many other lovely words but I would choose Breathe.

Sometimes I just stop to breathe.
I look around me and, despite all the trials and tribulations, am infused with the conviction that life is beautiful.
