The Silver Maple Jewelry Giveaway!




Hi all! A few weeks ago, I featured a necklace on my website that was sent to me by a friend of mine named Jacquelyn. The necklace was sent to me while I was training for my very first marathon and was a HUGE inspiration to me as I battled all of the physical and mental aspects that goes into training for a marathon. I completed my first marathon last weekend (yea...I know, I still owe ya a race report!) and now that same necklace has become a sense of pride and accomplishment. I have worn it almost every single day since the marathon.




My friend Jacque not only sent me this necklace, but she has recently started up her own business called The Silver Maple. Jacque, like a lot, of us is a mother and a runner, and I am so proud of her for turning a passion of hers into a business.

All of her pieces are hand cut from sterling silver and copper and are distressed to give them a very unique look. I am truely honored to host a giveaway for her not only because I find her jewelry to be incredibly inspirational and unique, but because Jacque is one of the sweetest and most genuine people that you will ever meet.

Take a look at some of her other art:




Ok, so one lucky reader will receive a $40 gift certificate to purchase a piece of jewelry from her website The Silver Maple.

The giveaway ends on Tuesday, May 25th 2010 at 12:00 MST.

To win:

1.) Go to her website The Silver Maple and tell me the piece of jewerly that you like the most by leaving me a comment.

2.) Become a Facebook fan of The Silver Maple by clicking here. Don't forget to leave me a comment!

3.) Go to her blog and leave her a comment. Let her know how much you like her art and creativity, by clicking here. Don't forget to leave me a comment!

4.) Don't forget to become a follower of my blog and then let me know what you would order from The Silver Maple if you were to win.

5.) Spread the word about The Silver Maple on your Facebook page or twitter account. Link my blog and leave me a comment!

Ok, friends, I know that I have been blog slacking. I took a MUCH needed week off from blogging, facebook, running (gasp!) and all things internet after my marathon. But I'll be coming around very soon to check out all of your posts and do a catchup!!!

Have a great week!

CAN I PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE have a necklace since it's my birthday tomorrow and I'm going to be SOOO old...45!?! Please X 1,000. Oh, and I LOVE YOU TARA. YOU are the sweetest, hottest, funniest runner and blogger around and I truly mean that from the bottom of my heart, even though it sounds like I'm just padding this post for a necklace...I can't post on FB since I only use it for stalking purposes. Oh, and remember, I was the first to tell you about the Kara Goucher gossip, that HAS to count for something!
Thanks in advance, Tara!

Tara,
Thank you for stopping by! Friday was pretty blah.
I was tested for diabetes (both my parents have it) but I came up clear. My doc gave me a blood sugar tester to keep an eye on how bad I crash. We believe it is hypoglycemia. I have been noticing during a good workout my blood sugar will spike, but then it crashes again. I typically keep OJ in my car because I know what is coming and I am pretty good about catching it before I have serious issues. Both my kids also know the warning signs and what to get me if they see I am having issues.
I love that jewelry! I will have to look into getting some!
