Giveaway – Sweetheart Necklace

Welcome, welcome! ๐Ÿ˜€

It is no exaggeration to say that the answers to last week’s giveaway question were truly the best ever!!! I’ve never seen such a wide range of interesting, thoughtful, clever, and very amusing responses. You sure know how to make me feel lucky to have you as readers. ๐Ÿ˜€

And I really love that you are beginning to talk to each other here, too! My dream is that it will continue and that we’ll have even more back and forth chat as the weeks go on.

For this week’s giveaway, I wanted to do something with a Valentine’s theme – something dressy enough to wear out to dinner, but still casual enough to throw on with a t-shirt.

Sweetheart Necklace


The focal point is a Swarovski Clear Crystal Heart with gorgeous facets that dance and glitter as the light hits them.


For accents, I’ve used Czech fire polished rounds in deep garnet red, and Swarovski Clear Aurora Borealis crystal beads. Tiny glass seed beads form the rest of the strand and the closure is a silver-plated screw-twist barrel clasp. The necklace measures 19″ in length.

Contest Rules and How To Enter

Any day you leave a comment on this blog – it is counted as a chance to enter that weekโ€™s giveaway.

For example, if you answer todayโ€™s question (youโ€™ll find it below!) that will give you one chance.

But if you then come back another day this week and comment on a different post – you will have earned another chance in this weekโ€™s giveaway! There are usually 5 posts per week โ€“ Monday through Friday – so you can have up to 5 chances to enter!

When you comment you do not have to mention that it’s an entry in the giveaway. My blog program shows me all of the “comments” as they come in – so I do not miss any of them, and all will count to be entered into the drawing! ๐Ÿ˜€

Today’s question is:

Can you tell us about something that youโ€™ve never tried, but would like to – because you think you might enjoy it?

Giveaway – Sweetheart Necklace — 96 Comments

  1. I would love to my hand at Jeopardy or another trivia game show. I love trivia and when I watch those shows I get so many answers right! My fear is that I would make it on tv and make a complete fool of myself :/

  2. I would love to try running a mile barefoot. My feet aren’t great and I wear shoes with huge support, but I hear that barefoot is the way to go. If I get up the courage to do it, and not worry about hurting myself, I’m going to give it a go!

  3. Would love to ski – have always wanted to, never got the chance. Hopefully some day. …

  4. It’s quite embarassing actually! I drive but i can’t do the bike! I’m positive I’d love it!

  5. I would like to try wake boarding. My friends all do it and it looks like fun ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I would like to try going on a cruise. I have never gone on one and my brother and his wife keep trying to get me to go. My nephew even got married on one.

  7. My husband is an avid sports bike enthusiast. I think I would like to get my bike license and start riding. I think he would love it! Every girl wants to be ‘cool’ for their man ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. I’ve never tried any crazy adrenaline-pumping things like bungee jumping, or biking down the famous death road, or sky diving! I would LOVE to try any of these… I think it would be such an amazing rush!

  9. I would love to try and quilt. I sew clothes but something that big really scares me.

  10. I would like to experience a flight in a supersonic aircraft (fighter). I can see and hear them every day because of they land on the near airport.:-)

  11. I have always wanted to go sky diving. It seems like so much fun and it looks so exhilarating!!! Taking that first jump out of an airplane is the sweetest way to enjoy the outdoors.

  12. I would like to go in a hot air balloon. It just seems to be so exciting and romantic. Slowly lifting off the ground with the scenery all around, it is the best view I could ever ask for. Being able to soar through the air has no downside.

  13. Hello Crystal!, the necklace you’re giving away it’s sooooo gorgeous!, I’d like to be entered!, I’m going to look for the chances, lol.
    Now replying to your question Can you tell us about something that youโ€™ve never tried, but would like to, because you think you might enjoy it?
    I have to say it’s driving a car, I know I haven’t learnt or tried it yet because I’m a chicken!, lol, but I have to learn about it and I’m afraid I’ll love it!, and later on nobody’s going to stop me for real!

  14. i would have to say bunjee jumping! it’s something i’ve always wanted to do but there are no places near me that offer it. i’d have to go out to the coast or something.
