Giveaway!

I have something special for you today!













Ann, from Hip Mom Jewelry, creates beautiful hand-stamped necklaces and bracelets.   Her work has been seen around well-known necks such as The Pioneer Woman, April,and now MrsMama!   She recently designed this unique piece and is generously giving one away to readers at All Astonishment.


Camera-2








This necklace features an original drawing of a camera by Hip Mom Jewelry’s artist-in-resident.  The optional second charm can be hand-stamped with the winner’s choice of a word or two.

Camera-3

I chose the words “captum momento” for my second charm.  It means “capture the moment” in Latin and is a reminder for me not only to freeze those fleeting bits of time with my camera, but to truly live in the moments that I’ve been given.

Faithful readers know how much I like Jane Austen’s prayer:
"Teach us... that we may feel the importance of every day, of every hour as it passes."

If you would like a chance to win one of Ann’s camera necklaces, take a look at her website then leave a comment below.  If you become a fan of Hip Mom’s Jewelry on Facebook, or Tweet about the contest, then you will get an extra entry.  Just let me know in your comment.

Good luck!  Contest ends Sunday night.  I will randomly choose a winner and will let you know on Monday.

I bought one of the Caden necklaces a while back, but had forgotten how cool her jewelry is. I love the infinity circle with the kids names on it. Very cool!

Very nifty jewelry. I also became a fan on Facebook. I am going to order one of the necklaces for my daughter-in-law for Christmas.

I first saw her jewelry linking via Coal Creek Farm. Which is also how I found you. This is my very first comment on any blog so congratulations:-) I even became a Hip Mom fan on FB just now, because you asked. I was just checking her stuff out earlier this week.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful photography and sharing in this fun contest.
