I think I am feeling generous this month..


The Secret is in the Sauce is hosting a giveaway for one of my new necklaces. I collaborated with them to create two pieces, "Shine" and "Saucy" The contest is really simple, just leave a comment here as to which one is your favorite and then head on over to their site to leave a comment there also. If you just can't wait, both necklaces are available in my shop and a portion of proceeds for each "Shine" necklace will be donated to the Special Olympics of Michigan.



Also be sure to check out their sister site SITS Girls Recipes for some good eats!

Happy commenting!

The Saucy one must have been made for me!!! I love all of your stuff!!

Angie said...

Oh my, this is a TOUGH decision! I'm going with SHINE because it would always remind me to put my best face forward for those around me. And if I don't win, I'll be back to buy both of these. Beautiful work!

It must be the SAUCY one, for me. Great to see you highlighting the Special Olympics. Good for you.

They are both so beautiful and both have great meaning. But I would love to have the saucy one. It would be a constant reminder of all the awesome people that I have met through SITS and all the awesomeness that it SITS.

Well being me I'd have to choose the saucy charm but they are both gorgeous. Thanks for the chance. I love that you are helping the Special Olympics.

PhatMom said...

I LOVE the Saucy one because the bead colors match my mommy website (www.tidewatermommies.com) colors of pink and brown! Might have to design one for us!!

trashalou said...

How generous! I love the 'Shine' one bestest :-)

tollesons4him said...

I really like the shine one! But I also like the Saucy one too. HMMMM tough decision.

Michelle said...

I love your necklaces, Kristin. My mom just picked up Mister Man to take him to a birthday party (we have a going away party we couldn't miss but had already RSVPed to the first), and she's wearing the necklace that I bought her last month for her birthday. She absolutely loves it!

Anyway, I want my necklace because I'm jealous now that she has one and I don't! Plus, I know for a fact how great they are!

The necklace that I'd want is Shine. I was going to say Saucy because of SITS, but once I found out that there are proceeds going to Special Olympics, I want that one. Hopefully people will ask me about it, and I can direct them to get more....

Ronnica said...

I'd go with "shine." Thanks!

Amy said...

I love the "Shine" necklace. IT is so cute and 'simple'

Christine said...

I love the shine pendant. It wuold be a perfect gift for my daughter!

Z's Mom said...

I really like the "shine" pendant. It reminds me of the saying "rain or shine"....I can tell people, even when it rains,I want to shine! :)

Love all your jewelry and I'll have to remember it for birthdays and such!

Jules said...

I love the first one - shine. Pearls and stars are my fav.

DYSFUNCTIONAL MOM said...

Beautiful necklaces! I like the SHINE one because of the star charm.
I also love that you're helping out a charity! Kudos to you.

greedygrace said...

I'm a saucy girl, so I have to go with that as my favorite! But I love that you're donating the proceeds of the shine necklaces to charity!

greedygrace said...

My favorite is the saucy! Love your work!

(I apologize if this is a repeat, my connection is being a pain tonight!)

Smoochefrg said...

I like them both, but I'd pick Shine if I won. :)

Gramma 2 Many said...

Has to be Shine. Love it. Actually couldn't make up my mind for a while. Finally decided on The Shine. It will remind me to shine on.
Very generous of you to sponsor this give away. Thanks.

Casey's trio said...

I'm here from SITS...love the necklaces. I think "Shine" is my fave. Please add me to the contest:)

Trish said...

LOVE the necklaces, I would have to pick the 'Shine' one, though.

Thank you for contributing the Special Olympics. I am an SO volunteer, and have been doing so for many years. I had an Aunt that was an SO athlete before she passed away 8 years ago!

Here from SITS......

Veggie Mom said...

Love the Saucy charm 'cause I'm...well...you know...a saucy kinda gal!

kmm0305 said...

I love them both! I like the gems with the "Saucy" but like the meaning behind "Shine". I belong to a support group for my daughter's birth defect and the name is "Stars of CDH" so shine goes right along with that! I'm going to pass your esty shop onto them. And I'm bookmarking it for a Christmas present for me! :)

p.s. I share your name, but mine is spelled Kristyn

Ritch in Love said...

I love the Shine! Because I believe as women we shine and always should do our best to SHINE! Fabulous charms! Whoever wins is one lucky lady!

CindyDianne said...

I like the word "Saucy" better than the word "Shine", but I like the silver bead and the star better than I like the beads on the "Saucy" pendant. Decisions, Decisions. I think I'll go with the Saucy one as my favorite.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

I am genuinely an over achiever so I love to shine all the time but being the oldest of 6 in an Italian family makes me 100% saucy.

Tracy P. said...

Oooh, the SHINE one is up my alley. The Newsboys have a great song by that name and I've been singing it since I saw the necklaces.

I think SHINE fits because SITS gives the bloggers a chance to shine, and because Heather and Tiffany have done such a great job of leading this effort to be so positive and encouraging. Yea!

Camisetta said...

I don't know! I like them both for different reasons! But I think I like Shine the best for it causes everyone who reads it to think. : )

Sunshine said...

I love them BOTH...either one would be awesome! I know, says the girl that wears the "I AM BlESSED" one! Love your stuff sooooooooo much! ;D

Tami said...

If you have to make it hard for me & make me choose I'd have to say the saucy one.
I am usually a little on the saucy side so it fits.
They are both beautiful.

Migraine Mom said...

My favorite is the "shine" one...I am a children's school counselor and I am always teaching my children to "shine". I also think that all of us "shine" in what we do..whether that is blogging, counseling, parenting. I would love to win the "shine" necklace and would wear it proudly!

KatyTexasMommy said...

I just love SHINE, just that one word is very powerful. Beautiful work!

├╝berburber said...

Saucy is...well, the sauciest! When my son was three, he couldn't say Sophie (name of a neighbor's daughter), so he called her "Saucy". She lives with that to this day!

Shine!

Julie Northrop said...

I think they are both fabulous, but the "Shine" seems to fit me more so that one gets my vote! :)

Adrian said...

I like the Shine one. I might have to order the Love Faith and Hope version. My DIL is Tammy Faith and my grand-daughters are Anika Hope and Gabriella Love, so we have Love Faith and Hope! That would make a cute gift for her.

Wild Hope said...
