It's A Blessing Bracelet Giveaway...

As promised, we are having an amazing giveaway for the end of August here at Quilting Ranny's and thanks to Shannon over at It's a Blessing blog, you have a chance to win one of her beautifully created handmade blessing bracelets.



The most terrific part of this giveaway is that I am not choosing your bracelet and Shannon is not choosing your bracelet, you get to check out her Etsy shop and choose a bracelet of your choice up to $15. How really kind and generous is that?



This beauty on the left is her 'It's a Blessing,' bracelet and if you head over to her blog you can see how she has each piece broken into meanings and scripture.



For many of us who work in the secular world and are told we can't wear anything that represents Jesus, the church, etc. , what a perfect way to keep that reminder close to us everyday that today is a blessing, we are loved and there is hope?

This one is her Titus 2 Women's bracelet and if you love it, you have a chance to choose this one or even enter over at Jasmine's giveway at Far Above Rubies to win this.


I am actually still participating in Titus 2 Womens Bible study that I joined last fall and we took a summer break, I was thinking how cool these would be for those members of my team.



Shannon makes many beautiful things and all are very reaonsably priced and I know with Christmas coming up you will be able to find at least one thing for someone on your list from her beaded bookmarks, bracelets to keychains and laminated scripture cards.



We always wind up finding someone we forgot to get a gift for or wind up needing for a secret pal or under $20 Christmas swap. Well, here is your chance to do some early Christmas shopping from the warmth of your living room, help a handmade shop owner and not give your money to WalMart!



WAIT....THIS IS OPEN TO ALL MY BLOGGERS, UNITED STATES AND INTERNATIONALLY! So whether you live in Alabama or Algeria, Nebraska or Nicaragua, Belize or Belgium, you can enter and Shannon will ship your prize (if you are the winner) directly to your home! So, for my wonderful friends like Arlette, Brenda, Wendy and others, this is open to you as well!
