getting to know you giveaway


I so enjoy reading all of the comments that my posts inspire and getting to know many of you better. In celebration of hitting 150 followers, I'm going to host my first giveaway here on the Sadie Designs blog, starting today.

Up for grabs is this one of a kind rutilated quartz and gold tone necklace, similar (but never the same!) to ones that I have availably in my Etsy shop. These quartz points are struck through by mineral deposits of white and green, each with a unique and organic feeling. Spherical gold beads and a Japanese gold tone cable chain finish the necklace.


There are three ways to enter, please leave a comment for each entry:

1. Tell me one interesting fact about yourself (one entry/one comment).
2. Become a follower of the Sadie blog (one entry/one comment).
3. Tweet or blog about this giveaway (leave me a link, one entry/one comment).

Make sure that your e-mail address is easy for me to find (either on your profile or in your comments). I'll be selecting a winner Friday, March 4th, and posting the results here. This giveaway is open to anyone, no matter where you live. Good luck!

    An interesting fact about me is that many of my dreams come true (one time I dreamt that the son of a pregnant friend was going to born and then when I woke up I had a text from her telling me that his son was born). Also, I can sense when I'm about to bump into someone in the street.

  49. fabulous giveaway! and congrats on reaching a top number.

    interesting fact: i have 3 tattoos and one of the 3 covers up something i got on 6th street in austin when i was 18. few know about it and i cried when i got the "cover up" years later only because i knew that a part of my life was completely over.

    Now i can thankfully laugh about it and glad that perhaps only i can see what was once there if i look closely -- because i happen to like scars.

  87. A fact: Let me think I am somewhat weird :)
    I'm afraid of whales, I can not see them underwater I start freaking out, i literally feel like crying. I can't hear the noise they make or anything. I'm not even sure how it started, maybe because I almost drowned when I was younger, even though I'm sure there were no whales present :) Only me - haha!! My Miguelito likes to make fun of me and will scare me with whale books :)

  94. A fact about me is that my grandfather used to tell me that all dogs have a zipper on the back of their neck under their collar so that they could take their fur suits to the cleaner... and still to this day I sort of believe it! I can imagine my dog coming down the stairs holding out her fur suit for me to take to the dry cleaners (which is kind of funny because I have never dry-cleaned anything in my life)!

    Sometimes, when I'm going to fetch something from my room, I turn off the lights, close my eyes and pretend I'm blind.....usually, I can't find what I'm looking for and knock a few things over in the process.
