Ultimate Blog Party

***This Giveaway is now closed. Thanks!***

I've participated in this 3 years already, which means I've been blogging a very long time. (In blogging years, of course.) So this is my 4th year to participate.

For those who are new here, I'm Beki.
I have a jewelry business called The Rusted Chain.
And I'm also a portrait photographer.

Because that isn't enough to keep me busy, I have three kids, two dogs, a husband (just one of those), 3 houses (two of which we're trying to sell), 3 cars (two of which are dead)...

I know you have lots of links to visit so I'll make this short and sweet.
I am not a great hostess.
You'll have to grab your own drink.

But one thing I do well is give away jewelry!



~ So, all you need to do is leave a comment and you're entered to win a $30 gift certificate to The Rusted Chain!

~ Tweet, facebook, or blog about it and receive additional entries.
Be sure to leave a comment for each of these.

Happy Partying!
Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ooohhh...I'd love to win a gift certificate. I like what you do. But, my comment is this -- it was great to see you in Wal-Mart today. I hope you guys get your modes of transportation fixed. What a bummer!!!!! But, my child's fever got worse after Wal-Mart, and so, that's our bummer. But hey -- it's spring. I won't complain.

I love the 'choose happiness' necklace. Because while sometimes things are out of our control, we can usually choose to be happy. It's a great reminder.

Thanks for sharing!!

Ann said...

I just found your blog from "Fly through our Window" and am already hooked! How fortunate for me that the first night I read I can enter a giveaway. I live with the motto Choose Happiness because God always has something good in even the things we feel are all bad. The birth of our 4th child proved that to me almost 8 yrs. ago. She was born with Down Syndrome and heart defects that required open heart surgery at 6 months. I looked for the good to keep me going because life was hard with a special needs newborn, a 15 month old, a 3 yr.old and 7 yr. old. But God had wonderful things in store for our family! We experience an endless love everyday from her and have been able to touch many lives because of her. I'd love the necklace to wear in honor of what she helped God teach me.
