Tuesday Giveaway - Origami Owl Style

Hey Blogstalkers!

Sorry for not posting in the last couple of days but I feel AWFUL.  I wake up sick and go to bed sick.  I can't say with certainty that I feel sick whilst I sleep but I feel there is a strong possibility as last night everyone in my dream was eating burritos and I was sitting on the sidelines shouting "Keep those burritos away from me, they're making me sick!"

So that's what I've been doing.  But today is Tuesday, so a new giveaway must be started! (Real post tomorrow!)  First the winner of the Blue Monkeey giveaway is Rachel M whose five year old would just love the clips!  So if you're Rachel, email me at LaurenRaeGallagher@gmail.com to claim your prize.



Moving on.  Today's contest is brought to you by Lauren (cool name right?) who works with Origami Owl.  If you're not familiar with the company, they work with jewelry, specializing in something called a Living Locket.  Basically you can create a locket using charms and metal plates and such to represent the most important things in your life, the things that really define you.

As the other Lauren says, "I believe everyone has a story to tell, and Origami Owl is the perfect way to wear your story, start a conversation with a stranger, or make a new friend."

Just to try out the process I went to Lauren's Site this morning and created my own locket (though, as always, I am in no way being paid or perked for this giveaway.)  I decided to write the story of Lauren (me) and Ryan in jewelry so first I chose a plate with the word "Always" on it, which I've always thought is like a nice way of saying forever RYAN.  Then for charms I threw in a graduation cap an engagement ring, a baby carriage and an elephant.  The first three are self explanatory, the last one is to make Ryan nervous.  

"Lauren I get the rest of the charms but why the elephant?"

"Oh you will see Ryan, you will see."

So details of the giveaway: Lauren (not me) is giving away a $65 credit to Origami Owl so one lucky reader can create their own Living Locket.


To enter, she is asking that you "Like" her Origami Owl Facebook Page and then I am asking that you leave a comment here to let me know you've done just that!  A winner will be chosen randomly as always early next week.

Have fun!

  5. Not to be a Debbie Downer or anything but I'm currently 5 months pregnant and STILL have bouts of morning/afternoon/evening/allFREAKIN'day sickness. So I sympathize and warn you to not listen to those who say "At 12 weeks you'll be right as rain!" But trust me, it does get better, a little bit :)

    PS- I liked Lauren's page. I LOVE her jewelry!

  8. I love Origami Owl! I already have my own locket, but I would love to give my mom a belated Mother's Day gift (I was in the middle of moving when Mother's Day rolled around, so Mom got a card and a promise that we'd do something together when she visits in June).

    I had 17 weeks of morning sickness with my little guy last summer. Had to go on leave from work and lost a ton of weight. My advice: get the nausea medication. Seriously, don't wait. It will make your life bearable again!

  31. I've been wanting to get one of these but I haven't tracked down a local consultant. I would *L*O*V*E* to win one. :) And I liked her page.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Liked, because there is nothing more awesome than storytelling jewelry. These are way cuter than charm bracelets and I love charm bracelets.

    Ha! Good idea with the elephant, Lauren. Keep him on his toes. Feel better soon, and know that the sickness will be totally worth it in the end. :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  37. Liked! These are awesome! I agree about the alternative to the charm bracelet! As every version of a charm bracelet I've ever had I have some how managed to mangle it and maim myself in the process.

  45. Liked her page, LOVE the lockets!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I wanted to edit my comment but apparently you can only delete....I have liked the page! Adorable lockets. I hope the sickness gets better soon. A co-worker of mine is preggers, due very soon, and she was extremely ill the first few months, to the point that she actually lost weight. Eventually it got better, accupuncture helped her. I have heard though that sickness is a good sign, it means there's a healthy baby growing. Good luck!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Those are incredibly charming! Liked! (Also, hope you feel better soon and start having weird food cravings because that will be great blog fodder.)

    ReplyDelete
  76. Liked. I've always believed that the sicker you are means you are having a girl. (Too much estrogen overloading your system makes you sick). This is only because the people that I know who have had girls have all been sick but not so much with the boys. Granted, it is kind of a small focus group but so far the theory holds true.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I liked Lauren's page ,(how could I not? I love these lockets!)

    hang in there with the "morning" sickness... hopefully one day you'll just wake up and realize you don't feel sick!

  140. I adore this give away!!! A woman I play bunco with has a necklace like this that was given to her and I LOVE IT!!! I was begging her to tell me where she got it, but since it was a gift she had no clue. However, these look just like it and I'm sooooo freaking excited!!! I'm certain I've hidden my over-exuberance by keeping my exclamation point use in check...clearly.
