Erica Sara Designs Giveaway!

I'm a lucky girl. I wake up and work my tush off all day, but on something I love and for people who appreciate it. Even on the craziest of days when I feel like I'm sinking in my "to do" list, I feel fortunate. That feeling increases exponentially when I get a chance to chat with some of my customers, hear their stories, and especially when they ask me to design something special just for them.

A few weeks ago, a woman I like to call Sugar, contacted me to design a necklace for her birthday. I'm not sure how I first "met" her, on Dailymile or on Twitter, but we've since become online buddies and I've learned so much from her. Sugar is a mother of two beautiful children, one of whom has hearing loss and other special needs. She is a wife to a wonderful husband with Young Onset Parkinson's Disease. She is a runner, a triathlete, and an incredibly inspiring woman who reminds me to be grateful each day.  Oh and she has kicka$$ taste in music! I was honored to re-design her blog for her, and when she contacted me to create her birthday bling I jumped at the chance! She wanted something to represent her as both a mother and a racer, so we designed this beautiful brushed sterling silver necklace which is engraved with the quote "I was born to do this".

Then just yesterday, a woman named Eva contacted me to design something special just for her. I've asked for permission to include her words in this blog post because they touched me so much and she agreed:

My name is Eva, and l love love your designs! I want to see if you can create me something is my story. I have been fighting leukemia for about 7 yrs, at the moment am in remission, hopefully for a longer time this time around, either way am grateful, am also running my 1st Full Marathon ( Publix Marathon in Atlanta, GA)
Is there something you can suggest or help me put together, I prefer a necklace I can wear, everyday.....

I am so excited to design something for Eva but even more excited to hear how she kicks major marathon butt in Georgia!!! Can we all please wish Eva good luck & happy thoughts for her race?

So, in honor of both Sugar's & Eva's strength, courage and just for being incredible women, I'm offering a giveaway on my blog. Enter for a chance to win either the necklace pictures above or this Love necklace which is also a major favorite on my site (the winner will get to choose)!
