Peach Pearl Giveaway

Yesterday a much older couple invited me to dinner because I was new in town. I was amazed at how much we had in common, that there were no lags in conversations, and that I had fun. Mostly, I was amazed that they had taken the time to do something both so random and so kind. Every week I give away a piece of jewelry at random to let people know they are special. The winner is free to keep the jewelry or give it to someone else. To enter the contest read the rules and then leave a comment with who you would give this to & why or a random act of kindness.

The prize this week are pink/peach pearls on a liquid sterling silver necklace. Pearl is the birthstone for June.

The Rules:

Please don’t sell the jewelry, it’s to make whoever receives it feel special. The winner will be chosen by a random number generator at 6pm on Friday Mountain Time.

Contestants should be over 18 & live in the lower 48 states because I’ll be paying shipping. I won’t sell or abuse your mailing address.

If you’ve already won a Random Act of Bling, you can win again, but please give the jewelry away at random.

Please leave a valid e-mail address, this is how I will contact you if you win. The subject line of the email will say something like “Random Acts of Bling: You Won” I’ll also announce the winner in a blog post. If I can’t reach you then I might have to relist your prize.

If you want to link or stumble this post it would be appreciated but is not required.

Comment/trackback/link should be about a random act of kindness or who you would give this jewelry to & why.

Mosaic Pearl Earrings Contest

I was reading a blog last week where someone casually asked the question “What’s your story?” It stopped me in my tracks. I think that is pretty much the dream question for everyone on the planet. Some of us even have prepared answers for it but the question never gets asked. So many people are looking for a chance to explain themselves and really be heard. Along the same lines every week I give away a piece of jewelry at random to allow someone to have a small moment in the spotlight. The winner can either pass it on to someone else or keep it. To enter the contest, read the rules and leave a comment about a random act of kindness or who you would give this to and why.

The prize this week are mosaic yellow mother of pearl earrings. Pearl is the birthstone for June.

Summer Earrings Giveaway

In Tori Spelling’s book Stori Telling she recounted how being nice paid off. She had a bit part in a movie & had to go to a photo shoot with the other, more famous actresses. She was the last one to be shot & the photographer was tired. He asked her what her demands were. The other actresses had been complaining all day. She just said something like she was happy to be there. They ended up putting her on the cover of the magazine when she just was supposed to have a smaller photograph on the inside. I really don’t believe that nice guys finish last.

Every week I run a contest where a random person gets pretty jewelry, kind of as a reward for all the nice things that they do that never get recognized. The winner can keep the jewelry or give it away to someone else. All you have to do to enter the contest is read the rules & then leave a comment about who you would give this to & why.

The prize this week are painted glass earrings set in sterling silver. I usually try to stick to genuine gemstones, but these just reminded me so much of summer & the beach I couldn’t resist.

The Rules:

Please don’t sell the jewelry, it’s to make whoever receives it feel special. Winner will be chosen by a random number
