Now on to the personal side of things for today's post. We have been trying to get pregnant for that past 15 months (not that I am counting or anything) and each month I think to myself, 'Self, if it doesn't work out this month, maybe I should buy something to cheer me up'. And each month I do not buy myself something to cheer myself up. It just sounds like something that I would end up hating seeing. A collection of 15 awesome pairs of shoes that mean 15 months I didn't get pregnant. OR 15 really pretty bracelets that each time I wore them, I would be reminded of what an epic failure at being a woman I am. I just don't think I would like it very much.
|I love my necklaces, just do not really wear them all that often.|
I am going to give away something lovely from my sewing room each month that I do not get pregnant. Haha, what a weird type of giveaway right? BUT it will help me clean out my sewing room, give something pretty to someone else (as well as give them a smile), distract me (I am all about distractions) and maybe in some sort of teensy tiny way, bring awareness to infertility. Just think of the 7 degrees of separation with Kevin Bacon, only imagine infertility. Yup. It is everywhere.
This month is just giveaway nation!! I participated in Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and then I was a part of the bloghop for Bari J's newest line Bijoux, and now my little blog's monthly giveaway!! I will have to think of some sort of clever name for it, but in the meantime we can just call it:
The Distraction (aka SHARK WEEK) Giveaway!!
How do we feel about the chance to win this?: I used Farmdale Blossom by Alexander Henry in gray with an deep orange clasp. The inside is a beige linen. I will open up the giveaway when Shark Week starts, but just so that you have it on your radar. I will keep you posted, but here is some eye candy in the meantime.
