GIVEAWAY - Locket2You - AMAZING LOCKET celebrating Summit of Awesome! CLOSED

CLOSED - AND THE WINNER IS - ALAMODESTUFF!

Chosen by random.org
True Random Number Generator

Min: 1
Max: 642
506
Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Locket2You has a special place in my heart because owner (designer/maker) Miranda is my niece! Miranda and her (designer/maker) hubby Scott are the crafty couple behind this amazing little locket line!

They live in Portland, Oregon with the handsome and totally clever Adriel, age 7 (although he does think his Aunt Cat is a brain-eating zombie) and the incredibly adorable Elise.

Miranda has been a craft maven since childhood - her earliest crafty ventures involved puff paint and plastic visors and also candles and seashells (this one might have resulted in the untimely death of a snail named Shirley, but we're not going to go there) - she is also an excellent cook and writer!

Their lockets are fun and gorgeous and very hard to resist (but why would you want to?)

Locket2You has grown their little business into a 75 store crafty empire in less than a year.
How'd they do it?

Well, we are going to talk to them about that when I do a series on wholesale next month (a little heads up would be that this process includes a totally great product, Scott's excellent understanding of social media, alot of hard work, a bit of good luck and the positive intention to expand - think law of attraction in action again - something tells me they have not been whining on Wednesdays ... well, maybe a little knowing Miranda).

Scott will be speaking about wholesale selling at the Summit of Awesome in Portland this week. Etsy will be following the Summit in the virtual labs, so check it all out for lots of great (ok, let's just say awesome) information.

We are so lucky to have one of their stunning lockets for this week's giveaway!



WHAT YOU GET:

One lucky winner will receive your choice of one of Locket2You's stunning brass lockets!




HOW TO WIN:

Visit Locket2You and check out their lockets- then come back here and leave a comment letting Miranda and Scott know the locket you would like to win (colors and availability may vary):

Lizzie said...

It was so hard to decide which one was my favourite but "Down the Rabbit Hole" really appeals because it reminds me of my niece Alice who for her 18th birthday decided to work in 3 Bolivian animal rescue centres for 6 weeks. She lives in the Uk, had visited Europe with her parents but had never been to South America before and certainly not on her own with only a friend to go with her.

Holy crap, i love these. I think i'd pick the Navy on Ivory Octopus. (even though the nautilus kite is a close second)

kiwidutch said...

Thank You for the chance to win one of these and what beautiful designs!. One of these however stands out head and shoulders above the rest: Well, no surprise, I suppose you can't blame Kiwidutch for loving the Kiwi locket best!
This Kiwi locket embodies and immortalizes the bird that is one of the biggest Icons of New Zealand, that we the people are nicknamed for and reminds me of the flora and fauna and wild landscape that my soul yearns for on the other side of the world. Mostly I'd like to win because hanging your little Kiwi around my neck would put it in exactly the right place: close to this Kiwi's heart.

canngil said...

Such pretty lockets!
my favorite was the little blue bird, but also was very fond of Alice ones that were easier to see the pattern, like the Drink Me and House of Cards.
Suggestion? Day of the Dead painted skull pattern in bright colors, graphic of a gem stone in bright colors (faux but you still know what it is supposed to be!)
Thanks!

Catherine Ivins said...

Thanks for the reminder Grace- I usually let the seller shop draw the number and then I contact the winner- so I sometimes get a little backed up- but the winner info is at the start of each post after selected.
