One Hundred Thousand Views Fine Silver Giveaway!


Yeah!  My blog has had one hundred thousand views!  I am sure half are from my mom and sister but the rest might actually be legitimate blog readers!  Hurray!

Because of this and because I'm so excited, I am offering a giveaway!  Technically, the legal term is SWEEPSTAKES.  That's what this is.  A Sweepstakes! Yeah!

Since this is a DIY blog and I'm pretty big on DIY stuff, I DIY'd the prize.  (Follow that?!?)

This is what I made to give away:

These look so much nicer in real life.  The silver is shiny!
The rectangles measure a little more than an inch long.  They are fine silver - more pure than sterling.   Sterling is .925, these are .999 .  (The hooks are NOT silver, just silvertoned.)  I made them using PMC - a fun hobby but hideously expensive!  

As with any sort of sweepstakes, there are some legal things that I have to say.  Here it is!
*No purchase is necessary.  (Technically, it's not possible since I don't sell my stuff on this blog.  Whatever.)
*Odds of winning are based on number of entries. (duh)
*Sweepstakes starts today (July 10, 2013) and ends in exactly one week (July 17, 2013).  In one week (or so. . . I have a life outside of blogging so I'll get to it when I can), I will number the comments (first comment = #1, second comment = #2, etc.)  I will generate a random number on random.org to find the winner.
*One entry per person, please!  (This one is on the honor system. . . I'm not going to go through and compare email addresses to names to determine if anyone entered twice.  Be nice.  Play by the rules.)
*To be entered, leave a comment at the end of THIS post.  Leave a comment about anything you want. . . the weather, your dog,  how much of an inspiration I am to you (tee hee). . . anything.  You also need to leave a way to contact you if you win!
*Prize is worth $35 USD. No cash is awarded; prize is pair of earrings only.
*US residents, 18 and older are eligible.   Sorry, I won't ship overseas.  Too expensive.
*Winner will be notified via email (if provided) and prizes will be mailed via USPS to the address provided.  I will also name the winner and their comment on my blog.  If you choose not to provide an email in the comment section, you must provide me a way to identify you when you email me to claim your prize (a name would be nice :)  Winners have one week to contact me to claim the prize. If the winner has not contacted me within a week of the winner being posted, I will randomly generate another winner.  This means you either need to check back, subscribe or follow me so you can see if you are the winner!!!

Good luck, all, and thanks for the one hundred thousand views!!!


  1. Cute earrings! What is PMC?

    1. Precious Metal Clay. It's silver mixed with a binder so you can shape it like clay. You fire it and it burns off the binder leaving just the metal. I love doing it but it's so expensive that I don't get to do it often.

    Stumbled across your blog a few months ago and liked it so much I went back and read every entry. Love it!

  3. 100,000 views is awesome! Congratulations Jennifer! I don't look good in earings (maybe if I grew a beard and my hair long, wore an eye patch and said "Arrgh" it might work) but wanted to say congrats nonetheless!
