Charming Expressions Necklace Giveaway


Amy, the last entrant who commented “The monogram necklace is super cute!,” is the winner! Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway. This was great fun.

Per usual, I am fashionably late to the party.

Give Simple has graciously offered up one of the pretty, fun, feminine necklaces from Charming Expressions as part of the ginormous Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival taking place this week.

Designed by Shawnell Williams of Fort Worth, Texas, each glass charm is hand-crafted and has its own unique imperfections that add to the loveliness. 6a00d8341c05c853ef00e552062b1a8834-800wi.jpg

To enter, visit the Charming Expressions page at Give Simple and then leave a comment here telling me which of the necklaces is your favorite (it’s hard to choose, trust me.) You’ll then be eligible for the random drawing for the Charming Expressions necklace of your choice.

Entries will be accepted through midnight Saturday, April 26 and then I’ll draw a winner’s name from all eligible comments on Sunday. You don’t need a blog or website to enter, but you do need to leave a valid e-mail address so that I can contact you, should you be the big winnah!

p.s. Don’t forget my earlier announcement — you can take 10% off all purchases at Give Simple through April 30 with the code BLONDEMOM.

    Are you kidding me, pick one! I guess my fav is the blessed


  10. Carol says:

    You were right, it’s hard to pick just one. I’ll go with happily, but then happily ever after is awesome too and so is blessed. Thanks for a chance.

  11. Melissa says:

    I just love the ‘giggle’ necklace. ‘Laugh’ is like my signature thing & I’ve so many things saying that, but it would be neat to give it a lil twist with a ‘giggle’ Thanks, for the giveaway. P.S. It was hard chosing just one!

  12. Julie says:

    I like the Grace necklace. I also like the monogramm necklace ’cause I like personalized stuff!

  16. Swallowing A Moose says:

    That’s my most favorite. Grace- the gift we don’t deserve but is bestowed on us regardless!

  17. Kimberly says:

    I like “Believe” because sometimes you just have to believe to make it through the day… through the good times and the bad.

  18. Greta Adams says:

    the g necklace is my favorite for reasons obvious!! it’s my initial.

  25. Mari Ickes says:

    Oh. You are right-it is hard to pick! I think either Dream Big or Happily Ever After. Happily Ever After. That’s the one I pick…

  26. Tanya M. says:

    What a cool giveaway! Thanks so much for offering it! You’re right it is hard to choose, but if I must pick…I’d choose the pink Love necklace.

  27. Anita says:

    Ack, it’s hard to pick.

    Happily Ever After Necklace or Giggle. Hrm… Happily Ever After.

  28. Michelle says:

    I let my daughter pick, and she said that “Happily” was her favourite one. I would love to be entered in your giveaway and have a chance to win it for her.

  29. krissy says:

    Wowzer, that was harder then I thought. I’m gonna have to go with giggle though. That is my mantra, laughing and giggling my way through tears. It works for me!

    I also loved faith though, as I have lived by that mantra many a times too!

    I would wear any of those necklaces proudly though. I have always wanted something to reflect my personality, and giggle is perfect!

  30. rachel says:

    Wow. Those are all gorgeous and so simply stunning!
    ‘Blessed’ I think, is my favorite or maybe “Faith”
    They are all so wonderful.
    What a fantastic giveaway!!!

  32. Kim says:

    I can’t decide between the “Dream Big” necklace and the “Hope” necklace. Decisions, decisions!

  33. JenCannon says:

    I like the “Giggle” necklace. I think we all need to be reminded that giggling isn’t just for kids — it’s something we all need to do sometimes. Even at sometimes inappropriate times, giggling lets our minds reset and clear out all the cobwebs. For a few minutes at least!

    Thanks for the opportunity!


  34. CrystalGB says:

    I like the monogram necklace. They are all great though. Thanks for the contest.

  35. Kathrin says:

    I like “faith” and “happily” but it was hard to choose.

  36. Sarah says:

    It’s a close tie between the Happily necklace and the Monogram necklace. Those are so cute. Thanks for the chance to win!

  37. Sarah M says:

    Those are cute! I liked the “Dream Big” one the best I think (it was hard to choose.) Thanks for the great giveaway!

  38. lovedandamazed says:

    Very inspiration jewelry!! I couldn’t make up my mind for a few minutes, but I think my favorite was Believe. Thank you. 🙂

  39. Tisha says:

    All of them look great! The “love” one is probably my favorite.


  40. Jessica says:

    I love the DREAM BIG necklace. I am a teacher, and my students would really love it!

    Is it lame to say Happily since it’s the one pictured? It really is my favorite, although I do like Blessed, too…it’s just the color and font of Happily makes me smile…
