Well it's been almost three years since that last goodie box so I think we are way past due on a follow up!
I've been wanting to make another piece for a give away goodie box for awhile now. There has been so much going on between custom work, Dana being home, and the raccoons (yes, I did say raccoons. Blog post on that to follow) I just haven't had the time to devote to this. But I've had the idea for it tumbling around in my head for awhile. I knew I wanted to incorporate hand pigmented resin and stone...once I chose this beautiful robins egg blue druzy the shape and color for the rest of the necklace just fell into place.Marcel the Shell with Shoes On videos - go watch them NOW! They are the sweetest, funniest, innocent little videos you've ever seen. And the quote just seemed appropriate on so many levels...it's the reason I made a necklace just to give it away - because it's worth it.
After all of that worry and sadness yesterday I woke up this morning feeling even more excited to finish up this post and share this necklace with you. The whole thought behind "because it's worth it", well I think it might just become my new mantra. The idea of doing something nice - because it's worth it. Being kind to people different than you - because it's worth it. Volunteering your time - because it's worth it. Making someone smile - because it's worth it. Just being a good human being - because it's worth it.
So let me tell you how you can be the one to get this necklace and the goodie box it's packed in! There are three ways to throw your name into the drawing:
1.) comment here and tell me your "because it's worth it". What do you do because it's worth it ?
2.) share this post on Facebook (you can either cut and paste it to your page or just go to my Metalsgirl FB page and share the link that I've already posted there.)
3.) follow me on Instagram (metalsgirl), like the post about this necklace, and tag three friends (and make sure you tag me so that I see it and know to add your name to the hat again!)
For each of these that you do I will jot down your name and throw it in the hat.
Make sure to leave your email address with your comment so that I can notify you if you win. I will draw a name this Friday !
Have a very happy day...because it's worth it!
