Give Away Contest for March 2011

March Give Away Prize

Welcome to our Give Away Contest for March. This month's rosary was donated by Linda of Laude Arts and Gifts on Etsy. Linda is a member of the Etsy Rosary Guild and has been selling on Etsy since August of 1984. In her own words, Linda describes the rosary:

A harbinger of spring in the gloom of winter is this pink, man made, rock quartz crystal rosary. These beads are the most sparkly beads I have ever seen. They appear to have an AB or a Luster finish. The rondelles measure 5mm-5 1/2mm high and 8mm in diameter. They are a very pale, peachy pink color. The Avé beads have 3mm fluted, silver plated bead caps on either end and the Pater beads have ornate Tibetan Silver bead caps.The open work crucifix has a lily behind Our Lord's head and a lily on either end of the horizontal arm of the cross. The silver colored center has an image of the Holy Family on one side and the Holy Spirit on the other. This rosary would make a wonderful First Communion, Confirmation or Easter gift. It would also be great for Mother's Day. This rosary is valued at $45.00.

To see more pictures of this rosary, click here. Please don't hesitate to enter our contest and have a chance to win this wonderful prize.

The contest will end on Sunday, March 20, 2011

Open to US residents only


Okay…here’s the scoop! The Etsy Rosary Guild is a group of artisans who make beautiful, handcrafted rosaries and jewelry. We are dedicated to using our art as a witness to our faith as well as using it to help support ourselves and our families. Naturally, we want to let the world in on what we are doing, so we have decided to have a monthly give away as a means of advertising our creations. We started doing this in June and so far, our give aways have been enormously successful. We are hoping that you would like to get in on the action.

You can enter as many times as you wish…no purchase necessary. However, if you find that you would like to buy something, we won’t stop you!

Here are the rules. We’ve tried to make it as simple as possible.

To enter, first visit Linda’s shop and take a look at all the beautiful items she has
made. Find your favorite item and come back and tell us about it in a comment on the blog. That’s it! You’re done…if you want to be.

Please leave your email address on each comment that you make in the form of JaneDoe (at) anywhere.com. That way we will be able to contact you if you are the lucky winner. Sadly, because we can not contact you without an email address, entries that do not have an email address will be ineligible to win.

If you would like to make more entries after visiting Linda’s shop, here’s how you can do it.

Enter one (or more) of the member’s shops listed in the side bar on the
right, find something you like and come back here and tell us about it in a
comment on the blog. Remember that each comment counts as an entry, so
make separate comments for each shop that you visit. That way you
can rack up more entries.

Mark Linda's shop, Laude Arts and Gifts as one of your favorite shops on Etsy, come back here and tell us about it in a comment.


Sign up to follow our blog. You probably want to do this anyway so that you can learn about all that we are doing and keep an eye out for our next give away. If you already follow our blog (thank you), just leave your user ID in a comment.


Become a Facebook Fan of The Etsy Rosary Guild Team. Leave a comment back here with your Facebook name. Existing fans just leave your Facebook ID here in a separate comment.


Blog about our give away on your blog…or anyone else’s … and come back
here and put a link to the post in a comment.


Refer our Give Away Contest and our Blog to a friend. Ask them to leave a
comment on the contest saying that (your user ID) referred them. This will give
them an entry and will give you yet another entry. Two for the price
of one ain’t bad!



Just a reminder: Remember to leave your email address in the form of JaneDoe (at) anywhere.com. That way we can contact you if you are the lucky winner.

Also remember…Comments = Entries! Yaaaay! So leave as many comments as you like. Just click on the word “Comments” at the bottom center of the post and you’re ready to go.

Oh yes, this goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway. Guild members are not eligible to win. While this bums most of us out completely, it means y’all get more chances to win.

Winner will be chosen by Random.org

Thanks so much for taking the time to give us a look-see and thank you for entering. Remember the contest will end at noon on Sunday, February 20, 2011.

Hello

I visited Laude Arts and gifts shop and it is difficult to choose just one as a favorite and after much debate, I chose the Rosary Heart Lampwork Mother Child because of the tendernes and delicate feel and look to this particular rosary and the heart beads reminding me of Our Blessed Mother's Love. It just brought me joy to be embraced by that love and tendernes as Our Blessed Mother embraces us like She embraces Our Lord.

Many Blessings to everyone
