Lisa Leonard giveaway

I’ve never met Lisa Leonard in person, but I have long admired her artistry and know, by reading her blog, that I’d like to be her neighbor.
For these reasons, I am delighted to host a giveaway for Lisa this week.

I hope you’ll take a moment from your Monday morning (or another day this week) to browse her work and appreciate her exquisite attention to detail.
I recently selected a custom necklace crafted by Lisa.
I’ve wanted to find something I could wear to remind me of my word this year, which is S-L-O-W, and even more specifically the call to action “go slow.”

My necklace arrived on Saturday and I’ve not taken it off.
Nor do I plan to.
It is perfect.

If you’d like to make yourself eligible to win one of two $50 gift certificates to Lisa’s jewelry store, simply leave me a comment and tell me how you would customize the you are loved necklace.
Comments will close next Monday, March 29th, at noon and I’ll post two winners!

Happy Spring.

Comments

  1. Ginny Ritenour says:

    I love these necklaces! I would customize with “Peace,” which means many different things to me right now. Thank you :-)

  2. I don’t think I’d change a thing with the “Loved” necklace. My daughter is going through a rough time and it would perfect for her just as it is.

  3. Angie U. says:

    I think I’d change it to my word of the year – change. Right now, it’s a noun and a verb in my life. But, I also just love it the way it is – loved pretty much sums it up. :)

  4. peg risley says:

    I love Lisa’s necklaces! I would have lean put on mine. Clean mind, clean food, good clean exercise! It’s my word for the year and I am on a spending freeze-so I haven’t been able to buy my necklace for the year : (

  5. Cheri A. says:

    I would challenge Lisa to see if she could fit my word of the year on there – “WholeHearted”. I would be okay with it broken into two words or even “Whole” stamped on one side and “Heart” on the other!

  6. I think I would customize with Be Happy! Thanks for a chance to win!

  7. Lisa14895 says:

    Happy!

  8. Lynn in Fl says:

    My word this year is grow. But I just love the idea of a constant reminder that I am loved…which is all we really need in this life, to be loved. So I think I’d leave it just as it is!

  9. I’d love to put my sons initials and a heart for the one we lost. Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. I think I’d put Hope on it.

  11. I would put my 3 boys initials on it. Because they make me feel loved everyday of the world.

  12. I love Lisa’s necklaces – I would just love to put my family’s initials on the back – that would be perfect for me! Thanks

  13. I would add the date of our wedding. I married my high school sweetheart over 20 years ago and am reminded daily that he loves me!

  14. I would put always on mine. Thanks

  15. even though it may not be my motto for the year, just looking at your necklace has reminded me that I need to “go slow” at least for today. Thanks for the reminder.

  16. mine would say ‘perspective’

  17. My phrase for this year is “Good, better, best”
    Thanks for the chance, Stacy! Lisa’s work is gorgeous.

  18. Jennifer Patrick says:

    I absolutely love your new necklace. When you first posted about it arriving…I checked out her site and she is amazing. I would love to get one that has “journey” on it. To remind me that I need to enjoy everyday…the little things. Easy to forget when you have big goals and dreams. I don’t want to disregard my dreams…I just want to remember that the journey getting there is almost as sweet.

  19. Oh, I love Lisa’s designs! My word for the year is cherish. I’m torn though because that bird design is precious! Thanks for the chance to win!

  20. Ronnie Crowley says:

    I would replace the word love with dream – a group of friends are working on recognizing that even after 40 we have still have dreams and that we can achieve these dreams regardless of age.

  21. I love Lisa Leonard & her beautiful work! I’d put “change” on my necklace, to remind me of its constancy, & to acknowledge it & accept it as something with the potential for positivity. :)

    Thanks for the opportunity, Stacy! :)

  22. I love it as is. Beautiful.

  23. Hmmm… so many choices! Maybe “peace” or “calm” or “spirit” or “cherish” :)

  24. I would choose “peace”.

  25. Stephanie S. says:

    I would like the “loved” necklace to say “loved” on one side and “by Him” on the other. I just attended a spiritual retreat and to have a necklace reminding my that He loves me all the time no matter what would be wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win!

  26. I would put “E & H” on it.
    Our foster children were placed back with their bio parents but they will always be ours…always in our hearts.

    xoxo.

  27. I would put the name of our newest grand-niece on it – and then give the necklace to my sister-in-law who is a brand new gramma. Thanks for sharing Lisa’s beautiful work in this giveaway.

  28. I would leave the “loved” as it. My mom passed away 2 weeks ago and it would be a constant reminder to me that she loved me and still does even though she is not here with me any longer.

  29. Heather C says:

    My word for the year is “Joy” as in “Joy in the Journey”. So I’d customize with that word. I’ve realized as the mother of two young children that my time is short before they’re off to school and in spite of whining and the battle of newly gained independence I am determined to have joy in my journey this year and enjoy childhood. This would be a good addition to the little reminders I’m trying to put at key moments in my life. (Like the silver Christmas ornament of the word Joy that hangs directly in front of my kitchen sink so I can be reminded as I work through the days dishes or look out the window as I get a glass of water.)

  30. I love Lisa’s design’s. What better way to keep your word close to you. When I was careprovider for my mother for over 5 years, it became so over whelming at times that I wasn’t sure i would be able to go on. i wore the word “blessed” on a necklace to remind me of not the task at hand but how blessed I was to have my mother. Words are amazing and how they can lift you up. My mother is home now…oh how I miss her. Thank you for a beautiful give away.

  31. I don’t think I would change a thing. Maybe add a little heart charm to go along with the pearl. Love, love pearls.

  32. I think it would be nice to have the birthstones of some of those who love me hanging from this “loved” necklace.

  33. It’s perfect just like it is! (Okay, maybe I’d choose the shorter chain.) I love her necklaces!

  34. TracyBzz says:

    A heart stamped kinda crooked at the end of the word loved would be cute. Maybe my birthstone September/Sapphire instead of the pearl.

  35. since scrapbooking is my love–i would want PAPERCRAFTER on mine

  36. I would add the the word “so” before loved to remind me how loved I am. At times the amount of love my kids bestow on me is overwhelming but the necklace would be a reminder that I am a VERY lucky mom to have my kids love me SO MUCH!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  37. i have her chandelier necklace personalized with ‘choices’ my chosen word for 2010….i, too, have not taken it off since it arrived!!! i’m thinking that i would personalize this one with ‘choices’ as well!!! see you in spokane on tuesday!!!!

  38. Possibilities is my word for 2010. I LOVE Lisa!! That necklace with the bird on it is darling. I would love to win. Thank you!!!

  39. I love it just like it is! Thanks for the chance to win!

  40. Great giveaway! Love the necklace – I would add a cross to mine. Thanks!

  41. Simplify is my word this year and I’d love it on that necklace!

  42. love the little birdie one just like it is!

  43. For me: I would make sure the chain is nice and long so it can be right over my heart.
    For a gift: I would give it to my grandmother, who lost her husband last year after being together for over 50 years. Even though she lost her partner, she still has a huge family who love her and think of her always.

  44. love them! I would get redefine

  45. I would like it in the shape of a heart and I would see if I could get a red or pink pearl. My word would be “believe”.

  46. These are all so nice! I would either leave it loved or add my kids’ names or initials to it.

  47. Jo-Ellen says:

    I would add the initials of my family to remind me that I was loved as well as to let them know I loved them back. I have been asking for the thin sterling bracelet since before Christmas, but I think DH forgot. I should bring it up again.

  48. I really, really like this LOVED necklace. The only change I would make would be to add beads in the birthstone colors of my children, all who are adopted. We feel so blessed to have them in our life!

  49. Monika Wright says:

    My OLW for 2010 is TRANSFORM, and I’m going in the right direction with that. I would have Lisa engrave…don’t worry. As in the song, “Don’t worry, be happy!” by Bobby Farin. Just looking at it will make me think the be happy part! My 18-year old is soon embarking on a college experience and I need to not worry. It will all be okay.

  50. Just the word LOVE for my Aunt H…in rememberance of daughter Lynn

  51. I think I would put “blessed” on the necklace. I love her jewelry! I’m hoping my husband gets me the circle one for mother’s day with all my kids’ names on it!!

    Thanks, Stacy. You’re the best!

  52. The necklaces are so cool. I would absolutely love one. It would be the best birthday present if I won…March 27th is creeping up very quickly. Thanks for the chance!

  53. I would love to own this necklace. My birthday is coming up and it would be a perfect gift to me. I would put “blessed” on my necklace as I’m so blessed to be able to care for my elderly mother full time, but sometimes i need to remind myself of that.

  54. Ally White says:

    I love Lisa’s designs. Such cute stuff! Thanks for the chance to win. My fingers are crossed :)

  55. Tammy Harp says:

    I would leave it just as it is. That one word, “loved” is perfect all by itself. It describes the most wonderful gift in life – to be loved. I love that the word is “loved” instead of “love.” Love is a verb and calls to action. (Love one another.) But because the word has that one extra letter, it becomes an adjective and describes who I am instead of what I should do. It serves to remind me very specifically that I am “held in deep affection; cherished” by God and by those that He has chosen to bless my life with. (And I think the addition of the pearl next to the word adds some beautiful elegance and feminity. It’s absolutely perfect!

  56. What a beautiful necklace. I don’t think I would change a thing – it is perfect as is!

  57. SueinMtVernon says:

    Beautiful necklace. I haven’t received any new jewelry in years and this would be so lovely to wear. I think I would leave it just the way it is.

  58. Julie, momto7 says:

    I would put blessed on it then add 8 pearls to signify my husband and 7 kids

  59. Anna Vollmer says:

    I would have it say faith.

  60. Debbie House says:

    I absolutely LOVE her designs!! I would put loved as well….to remind me of how much I am loved! As women….we sometimes forget how many people truly love us! The pearl is beautiful as well!!

  61. carol in seattle :) says:

    No thought required from me! My husband signs his cards and letters to me the same way his dad did to his mom…”always and all ways”. Thanks Stacy and Lisa!

  62. I would put “i am enough” as a reminder that I am not expected to be perfect but I am perfectly me – I am enough.

  63. This necklace is beautiful as is! I think “blessed” would be good reminder for me to stop and count my blessings, because I am truly blessed. Thanks for a chance to win!

  64. heather diane says:

    My One Little Word 2010 is LIGHT… so I would love to put that word on a necklace…

    to remind me to:
    See the Light
    Discover the Light
    Share the Light
    Celebrate the light
    Enjoy the sunLIGHT
    Be a LIGHT

  65. Donna Bettencourt says:

    If I were going to customize this one that says loved, I would add another pearl for my other grandson. If I was able to personalized the whole thing I would say “be present” I love this one meaning not to look too far back or too far forward so as not to miss anything today! Thanks. Love Lisa Leonard’s designs.

    Donna

  66. lucinda s says:

    I just turned 36 and have had arthritis for 10 years. I have many down days. I would put Keep On to remind me to Keep on going, Keep on loving, Keep on hoping, Just keep on and never give up.

  67. I would have to have a necklace that says Gratitude, which is my word for this year. And I would be so grateful to win this.

  68. My word for this year is breathe. We have lots of stressful things happening in our family right now and I really need to be reminded to breathe and relax.

  69. I would put the word “cherish”. I am loved by my husband, kids, family and friends… but that love should be passed on… so by putting “cherish”, I can remind me that being loved isn’t enough, we need to pass it on to others in our lives by showing how much we cherish their impacts – no matter how small – in our lives.

    What a beautiful necklace! Thanks for the opportunity!

  70. Thanks so much for introducing Lisa to me… what an amazing woman!!! I just spent the past half hour looking over her blog and store and all I can say is WOW!!!! If I won the necklace I would add my daughter’s name to the back. I would also have to order a bracelet to go with it :)

  71. Not to be unoriginal, but I’d love it to read “u r loved” – I’d send it to remind my Mom who lives in Colorado that there are so many that care for her even when we can’t be near each other.

  72. hmmmm, good question…perhaps the word ‘beautiful’…life is beautiful! Thanks for the chance Stacy! Have a wonderful day!

  73. I think I would put the word ‘create’ on mine… to remind me of what brings me joy and what my passion is.

    I love ALL Lisa’s creations… her work is so beautiful! Thank you Stacy and Lisa for the opportunity to win!

  74. Oh my gosh, I love this jewelry. If I win a gift certificate, I will buy the friendship necklace for my dear friend who needs to be reminded of how much she’s loved.

  75. Lynette C says:

    My wedding is too tight for my finger for the pass 2 years and I have since wore it a chain around my neck. I would leave the “you are loved necklace” as is in your picture and add my wedding band to it.

  76. I love the family tree necklace. I’d add our family names–my treasures.

  77. I think I would leave it as “loved.” Who doesn’t need that reminder every day?

  78. I have one of Lisa’s necklaces – Mine has my children’s names and a Bible verse. I wear it contantly. I would love to have another. Anyone considering ordering SHOULD. They are beautiful!

  79. I would put “be true” on the necklace. To yourself, to others…

  80. I have so been enjoying the simple beauty of this jewelry. I would put “be here” on the necklace. I have made it a goal this year to be more present in the lives of my family and my friends. To not let the business of life take over the pleasure of just paying attention and being there for those I love.

    Thank you!

  81. Love is what makes the world go around, we all need that reminder. However we often forget that WE are truly loved… I think I would make it “I am loved” simply beause often I forget. In the midst of the busy stuff mom’s do all the time that become expected and often thankless deep down we KNOW we are loved, however sometimes it is a long time between thankyou’s and I love you’s and simple reminder would be a good thing to help keep things in persepctive when reality seems to cloud it. As mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, aunts, cousins…. we are all loved, but need to remind ourselves of it too.

  82. I would have it say simple because that is my word this year. I have been working on living more simlpy so I can enjoy each and every moment. I am the mom of two little boys and I want to enjoy my precious time with them. It is so easy to let the complexity of the world in and for that reason I am choosing to focus on keeping things simple.

  83. Stacy, you find the most inspirational things! I would put “be still” on this lovely necklace.

    I’m trying hard to “be still” with my college age daughters (amazing what you learn by listening) and my elderly mom, who I care for. My dh and I are at a turning point in our lives, and I’m hoping that we will find our future path if we are still enough to see it.

    And of course, I try every day to follow the advice of the Psalm to “Be still and know that I am God.” Only then will I see the path God has set our for me.

  84. ana smith says:

    Love all the jewelry she makes and you’re right she would be a great neighbor. I’m not sure what you mean by customizing the “loved” necklace, but maybe I would add “I am”, so it would read I AM LOVED. Sometimes I need a reminder, especially since I now have an ‘empty nest’. Thanks.

  85. I am wearing my Lisa Leonard necklace right now. Tiny squares with my husband’s name, my son’s name, and my daughter’s name. I hold them close to my heart always!

    I would customize my one word necklace simply with the word
    Mama
    on it. It defines who I am… What I was meant to become and what I will always be!

    Thanks for the giveaway! Keeping my finger’s crossed!

  86. So many ideas that could go on this beautiful necklace…but I think I would put either Trust (my word for 2010) or Cherish (my word for 2009), or maybe Blessed as being thankful to God for the blessings in my life is the focus of my blog. All these would make great daily reminders on the necklace. Thanks!

  87. Jennifer O. says:

    This necklace is so lovely. I would love to include my children’s names or initials with it.

  88. Andrea MacDonald says:

    I would definitely put my girls names and hubby too with the word loved.

  89. The necklaces are WONDERFUL!! I love all of her beautiful creations!! I would put my kids initials on the necklace with the word loved.

  90. Hmm, I would love to have my children’s name on it. My husband should get me one that says “It’s Okay” because I’m ALWAYS asking him if everything is going to be okay :)

  91. I LOVE Lisa’s designs… beautiful! I think I would keep “loved” on it … such a simple reminder. :)

  92. I’d leave it as is. It’s already perfect.

  93. THose are beautiful!!! wow!
    It would be a great 35th birthday present for me!!
    TFS the site! wow

  94. I would love it just how it is. It is so simple, but such a good reminder:)

  95. I recently ordered my word of the year necklace (it hasn’t arrived yet). Mine says “faith” and on the back Psalm 46:10. I’d keep the word “loved” on this necklace. I think it’s just right as it is. If I had to change it, I’d put “grace” on it. That was my second choice for this year.

  96. Briana N. says:

    I think I would put the first initial of the people who love me just as a secret reminder on the back. I love this necklace. So simple and perfect.

  97. I just love Lisa’s jewlery! My husband and I are trying for a baby, so I think I’d write “have faith” or just “faith” on it, to remind me to have faith that things will work out.

  98. I would have the necklace say “olive juice”. This is what my husband and I used to say to each other in high school instead of I love you. It’s something special between the two of us and we had it put on the back cover of our wedding album as well. I would love to have it on a necklace to wear always.

  99. I am working on making the best use of my time. I think I would make a charm that says “take time”. It can encompass so many things for me right now. That would be perfect.

  100. i would love for it to say hope.
    nannypanpan@sbcglobal.net

  101. My word would have to state “calm comfort”. My family is Blessed. I have the calm comfort of being reminded of that daily. After just completing a battery of medical test that must be done for me on a regular basis. It is the “calming Comfort” I feel knowing who’s hands I am in. But I would have to say having, a touchable reminder is an appealing idea.

    • Love the necklace! I would have to put “Forgiven” on mine. I am so thankful for the forgiveness that is given by our Heavenly Father through his Son, Jesus Christ.

  102. My word for this year is “enough” and I would love a necklace that either says “enough” or “i am enough.” I’m trying very hard to remember that. Thanks for another great giveaway Stacy!

  103. I would put ‘always’ on the necklace to remember we are always loved and loved always. Its a beautiful necklace just the way it is. Thanks Stacy.

  104. mine would say:

    BE DO HAVE

    Be committed to DO what it takes to HAVE what you want. Thanks for the opportunity, would love this…

  105. My necklace would say “Not even once”. it will be a bday gift for my soon to be 15 yr old dd. This is her purity motto to wait till marriage.
    Thank you!

  106. Ashleigh says:

    Wonderful necklaces! Yours and the one up for the giveaway!

    I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. The only necklace I own used to be my mother’s. She passed away in 2008 after struggling for 2 years with breast cancer so I wear the necklace in remembrance of her. I’d customize the “loved” necklace by adding the cross charm from my mother’s necklace.

  107. I have been thinking about a lot of little things lately…so I would have to sum it up better. But I am really likely things about being genuine, and trying harder. Like the quote “Try a little harder, to be a little better”-so maybe just ‘BE’.

  108. I would have the the word “believe” put on it for my friend. She rececently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy who only lived a few short hours. I want her to believe in an eternity with her son.
    Thanks,
    Misty

  109. scrapper al says:

    I like Nicole’s idea of adding “always.” Or adding initials of loved ones. But I think the “loved” necklace is beautiful as is.

  110. I just visited my 85 year old mother in law that is so dear and sweet. She is failing in health and I don’t know how long the Lord will keep her here with us. I love her so. When I began reading my “blogs”, I thought what a lovely gift this necklace…loved… would be to give to her. She is so loved.

  111. Jennifer Land says:

    It’s beautiful just the way it is. But maybe I would add “by Michael, Jimmy, Alex, Helen and Will.” I’m so lucky to be loved by my wonderful family. Maybe I would just say “lucky.”

  112. My word this year is PURPOSE! I want to have a purpose for every action, thought, idea and idle moment in my days, not that it has happened, but I’m become much more aware of how I spend my time and energy.

  113. Laurie T says:

    I would put my husband’s name on the back to remind me of our 28 year Love! :)

  114. Tiffany H says:

    I love Lisa’s work–just beautiful. I’d love the “loved” necklace just the way it is. I’d wear it all the time and when the time is right I’d hand it down to my daughter. Thanks for the chance tow in a great gift!

  115. i would put “change” on the necklace. i’m trying to embrace the change that is my life. Thanks for the giveaway!

  116. I think I’d add the words “No matter what” to “You are loved.” Hard to remember sometimes.

  117. I would put my word for the year “peace” on my necklace. I am exploring the word “peace” this year after a tumultuous end of 2008 and 2009. I am searching the Scriptures for God’s word about peace and looking for the small things in my life that bring me peace.

  118. Lisa Aukeman says:

    I love Lisa’s designs. I think the word “loved” is perfect the way it is!

  119. ANdrea C. in IL says:

    Beautiful necklaces. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! I would put the word acceptance or hope. Those are my words this year that I am working towards. I have lost my daughter. She was born still into heaven 5 years ago. The grief has been overwhelming. This year I am working towards acceptance and hope. I have felt hope for the future for the first time this year since we lost her. That also comes from the acceptance that we won’t have another child. So thus my would are acceptance and hope.

    • Shannon Mc says:

      I’m so sorry. If you like Lisa’s work you should check out the necklace she made in conjunction with Angie Smith called Marked by Love. It’s in memory of her daughter Audry Caroline, it’s beautiful and so full of meaning for those of us who have lost children. If you are looking for a place to help you with acceptance you should check out Angie’s blog- Bring the Rain.

  120. I would put 2 hands in the shape of a heart with hope and love on each hand. thanks for the chance to win.

  121. It would say “blessed” because I truly am. Thanks Stacy!

  122. Since, reconnect, my word for 2010 might be a little long, I might just shorten it to connect. I have been working away from home a lot for the last few years and now that I’m no longer doing that, I feel kind of like the prodigal wife, the prodigal Mom, the prodigal friend (and even the prodigal scrapbooker to my scrapping friends!). And I am amazed at how GOOD those human connections are feeling. I am loving my new connections and renewing my older ones. I NEVER want to dis-connect again …

  123. Monica R says:

    I love Lisa’s necklaces!!!! Mine would say my motto for this year- Be still and know. Thanks Stacy!

  124. It is truly beautiful the way it is. If I were to selct another I might choose W.W.J.D for my ii yr. old daughter – this stands for What Would Jesus Do and is something she often considers in making decisions – a nice reminder.

  125. Cindy Baker says:

    I’d put my two granddaughter’s names on the necklace…McKenna and Madyson!
    Love it that necklace! Hope I win!

  126. Susan R. says:

    I think I would put friend on it to remind me to always try to be the best friend and support I can be to the people I love.

  127. Thank you so much for offering this giveaway. You’re the best!
    The word I’d use would be “blossom”, as that’s my word this year. I’ve been through so many trials this past year. I’m mindful that I’d like to grow and blossom.

  128. I love Lisa’s necklaces. I’ve been wanting one for so long. I love what yours says. It’s perfect!

  129. I so love The Key To My Heart!
    I gave my hubby an old key when we first started dating! It would be fun to have a necklace with a key on it for myself! :-)
    Love the website!

  130. Mine would say some form of my motto for this year “Be calm and carry on”. Thanks for the chance to win – love the necklaces!!

  131. Mine would have my daughter’s name on it. After a very long journey of struggling with infertility, my husband and I were very blessed to adopt a beautiful baby girl in November. We are so thrilled to be a family of three after years of thinking that maybe that wasn’t God’s plan for us. I’d love to have a daily reminder of how our prayers were finally answered in a way we couldn’t have begun to imagine!

  132. Mine would definitely say Remember…….I want to make sure I always Remember that I am loved by many, and to return that love.

  133. Stephanie says:

    I love these necklaces!! I think I would get relax on the necklace, to remind me not to stress about everything and to enjoy life more.

    Stephanie

  134. Kristine says:

    I just received one of Lisa’s necklaces that I ordered for my sister for mother’s day – it is so gorgeous and I need to order one for myself too – thanks for the giveaway!

  135. I would love to have the words “be kind” around my neck. So often I am so rushed from one thing to the next but I always hope I am kind. My sweet husband is such a perfect example of kindness to me so the necklace would also remind me of him and his life motto of ‘being nice to everyone’.
    Thank you for your generous offer – I have looked lovingly at Lisa’s designs for a couple years now.

  136. Sherry Coleman says:

    Wow…. a reminder we all need sometimes, that we are loved. Thank you for the chance to win! I think if I customized it I would love to have a pearl/bead with a bluer cast, to remind me of my husband (we had similar colors for our wedding.)

  137. Focus is my word for this year and Shine was my word for last year…but the one word that remains a constant in my life (and is the mantra for our family) is Believe.

  138. I love the necklace just as it is but I think I might also like it if it said laugh to remind me to take like a little less seriously!

  139. Jennifer says:

    I would probably put Have Fun! We always try to have some kind of fun around our home with our girls even if it’s just a tiny gesture like a fun note in their lunch so they feel special or going on a day trip. Also, I definitely need to learn to relax, not stress so much and have fun!

  140. Lisa’s work & her stories are AMAZING! I read her blog daily & own 4 of her necklaces…
    If I were to win, I would keep the necklace “as is”. Having insecurities from time to time, this would be a constant reminder that I am loved! Thanks for this, Stacy! Enjoy your necklace!

  141. Shannon Mc says:

    I would love to get the Marked by Love necklace and put Unknown Angels on the back with 3 little pearls added to it for each of my babies living with the Lord.

  142. I’d put Luke 2:52 on the front to keep me mindful of the ultimate goal in mothering my sons.

    • Oh Ginny,
      I absolutely love this scripture and am thinking about using it to inspire summer incentives for my boys!
      so cool.

  143. I think I’d leave loved – to remember I am loved and to love. Thanks Stacy.

  144. My word would be cherish. It is my word of the year as I am working on slowing down to cherish the moments with my kiddos that are just flying by!!

  145. Life has been very difficult lately so I think I would have to have patience and perservance because I surely don’t know if I will make it through these latest bumps in the road of life!

  146. Amy Ferguson says:

    I would have it say “learn” I’m a student and need the reminder that it is a blessing in my life.

  147. with a blue or purple bead
    i love the “you are loved” quote, it is something that i need to be reminded of, i am not married and don’t have children and i often forget that my family loves me and is here for me when i need them, this would be a great reminder!

    Megan

  148. I would REALly love to have a necklace with my word for this year which is REAL. It would be a great reminder to be my REAL, authentic self in everything I do and say.

  149. Peggy Leland says:

    I would leave loved on it as well, but I would like to add my wedding anniversary on the back. I already have a lovely necklace that represents my kids, I want something that represents my husband and I.

  150. I would have the word family on mine. Everything I do in one way or another is for, about or in support of my family. I love the thought of keeping this close to my heart. Thank you for a another great giveaway. I look forward to reading your blog, not only for scrap inspiration, but also home/family too!

  151. wow – some peoples responses are just so deep and moving:>
    i wasnt thinking that way at all when i looked at the lovely necklaces ….. i’m over 8 months pregnant and we cant decide on a name but i would love to have the name of our son/ daughter close to my heart once they are born. great giveaway, stacy :>

    p.s – congrats on the safe arrival of your nephew – best wishes to his family :>

  152. Artsysue says:

    I would put family and peace or love. I think everything would be alright if the family was in loving peace with each other.

  153. Whitney S. says:

    I so love LIsa Leonard! She is just great! I would put forever on my necklace. It is a reminder that we are a family forever and our baby that we just lost at 31 weeks will always be ours….forever!! Thanks again!

  154. Melinda Wilson says:

    I would love to have my sons names included somewhere in the necklace.

  155. I think it would be great to put family…it is the center of my attention and love!

  156. Kimberly Ann says:

    I had so much fun browsing Lisa’s website. I would customize my necklace with the word “freedom”. I didn’t officially choose it as my word of the year, but it’s turning out that way.

  157. I would love to have ‘create’ on mine – my word of the year, to remind me not only to keeping creating, but to be mindful of ways to create peace and happiness in my life.

    Thanks for the chance at a great giveaway!

  158. I would put Daughter to always have a reminder that I am who I am because of m parents. They love me so much! I am so blessed to have them!

  159. Kelli Ingram says:

    Absolutely beautiful necklaves. I love them and the simple messages that mean so much.

  160. I would put “blessed”. Everytime I think about my life and family, I realize how truly blessed I am. Very cute jewelry :)

  161. This post is beyond awesome. I am always wondering what to do and what not to do so I will follow some of these tips.

  162. Theresa E says:

    I actually really like “loved”, but my word of the year is “Joy” so I’d like that too.

    Very cool giveaway Stacy & Lisa!! Thank you!!

  163. My sister bought me a beautiful custom necklace for Christmas, so if I won this giveaway I would repay the favor with a gift for her. She turned 40 this year and is hitting it in stride setting all kinds of awesome goals for herself, many which revolve around her cycle racing. I’m so very proud of her and would probably put something on her necklace like “strength” or “courage”.

  164. I would put courage to remind me of all that my teenage son has gone through with so much courage. He is quite an inspiration.

  165. Susanne H says:

    If I was lucky enough to win, I would put Let It Go. This is my focus this year. I hold on to far too many things that weigh me down mentally and physically. Having that necklace would help me to remember to Let It Go. Thanks for the chance to win!

  166. kim miller says:

    i would put the word focus on it. it’s my word of the year.

  167. I think I like it just the way it is, “Loved” would remind me of that even when I feel unloveable. I don’t have a word of the year, just never really clicked with me for some reason.

  168. I love it like it is… but I would also love it with the word “present” on it, as a reminder to savor *this* moment instead of worrying about what’s past or wishing for the future.

  169. If I were selfish and kept it for me, I think I’d have my “word of the year” put on it: “abide” But I think I might give it to my mother for Mother’s Day. Love Lisa’s jewelry~ really love it!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    susan

  170. I would put “blessed” on it…because I am.

  171. I would choose the word Blessed, or the word Peace. One I am and one I seek. :)

  172. Wow, what a sweet necklace…thinking maybe blessed to remind myself I AM blessed! even when all the day to day junk piles up, I am still blessed…thanks for the chance, Stacy!
    Amy in CA

  173. I love Lisa’s jewelry! This would be a tough choice. It’s between my word of the year – courage – and my daughter’s name – Abigail.

  174. Lisa’s jewellery is beautiful! I think I would customise the necklace with my word for 2010 which is ‘gentle’, or the word ‘lovely’ which I adore and use waaay too much! :-)

  175. I would put the word ‘Momma’ on it and give it as a gift to my Mum. X

  176. Hi Stacey, thanks for the opportunity. I would have the initials of my husband and three children on the other side as they are the people that make me feel most “loved” in this world.

  177. Kathy Jo Camacaho says:

    I would use my word for this year, which is “fearless”. I want to be fearless in my picture taking – to get in there and get the shot. I want to be fearless in what I do and especially in how I love.

  178. Jennifer W says:

    Usually Peace is my word of choice for all things like her beautiful necklace. But it doesn’t seem to quite fit the style to me. So I think I would choose ‘grace’ this time. I follow Lisa’s blog too, I love her work. Thanks for the opportunity.

  179. What a fun give-away!

    I really love the idea of putting my “word of the year” on a necklace, as a constant reminder. My word this year is “Home”. However, I think I would like this beautiful, simple, elegant piece of jewlery to reflect a sentiment that reaches beyond just one year. I think I’d put two words “Hope * Faith”. These are two concepts that I, from time-to-time, lose sight of…like this past year. So much has happened to my little family, so many changes, most of the negative that I’ve really struggled to keep hope and faith present. (If only I’d stopped and done that “present” scrapbook! The story it would have told a year ago!!!) A constant reminder, for life, is what I need! ~kc

    p.s. Not to worry…our little life is on the mend AND I’m FINALLY pregnant again. We are SOOOO excited!!!!!

  180. Amy Wolff says:

    This is why I have never ordered a custom piece of jewelry (although I drool over them constantly). I am so wishy washy when it comes to making decisions!! I would love to give one as a gift to my mom. She’s been the biggest blessing in my life.

  181. WOW, some of these have blown me away!!! I would have to go with the word BREATHE! It is my 2010 Word for ME. It is one that I want to live with each day…to take a step back from “life” as we know it sometimes (craziness, always running) and to breathe in all of God’s possibilities He has for us each and every day. I want my focus to be on HIM.

    Thanks so much for this opportunity…great giveaway!! I may have to order one even if I don’t win! :) Thanks again!

  182. What exquisite pieces!
    I would customize “Loved” with “Completely”
    Thank you for bringing Lisa to my attention!

  183. So much fun browsing Lisa’s site! Those necklaces are wonderful but still understated which is perfect for my tastes which are simple. I think I would do something to symbolize my twin daughters that died in 2005, maybe two little butterflies (we released butterflies at their memorial service as well as balloons) with their names on it or something as I am often feeling like people have forgotten that I had five children, not just the three that are with me.

  184. Maryellen says:

    My word for the year is “Savor”. As a older, full-time working mom of two young children , I got a late start on my parentlng adventure. I’ve found it’s really easy to get caught up in the demands of daily living and lose sight of moments I should be treasuring. And, I’m trying to get my weight down and live healthier so I’ll be around a long time for my children. So, I chose “Savor” for food, for life, for the moments.
    Maryellen

  185. I would put my son’s name on it. He holds my heart already, I just would want everyone else to know.

  186. I think I would add a tiny heart above the word. Lisa’s jewelry is all so gorgeous! I wish I could afford to buy one of everything :)

    Corinna

  187. Thank you… I’ve had her necklaces on my wishlist for a while now. :) I would love to say something about what I am focused on this year and something that tells a little bit about who I am. Story Addict. I love to read people’s autobiographies, tell other people’s stories, watch movies, scrapbook and tell my story, etc… For me stories are what connects relationships together and help form bonds.

  188. So thats a tough one! I think…Adore with my childrend initials. Or maybe an infinity symbol. Hard to choose!

  189. Live life! That’s the plan for me. To be present and live it! Although I must say, that “savor” entry was awesome. Good word!

  190. This is hard….think I would have my son’s name put on it. He is the most important person in my life and what a special way to show it. To let everyone know how much I love him. He will be 13 next month. 13 best years of my life.

  191. I know you’re going to get a TON of comments on this one! Who wouldn’t want some of Lisa’s jewelry! It’s so beautiful.
    I would put ‘Simplify’ on my necklace. That is my word of the year. I’m much better than I used to be but I still struggle not to over complicate my life – you know, the usual trying to do much with too little time and energy type of complications! I need to remind myself of this goal every day!

  192. Not too original, but I would customize my necklace with my husband’s and children’s names.

  193. I would have the word HOPE put on the necklace. I want to remember that there is Hope smiling brightly before us, always.

  194. Barbara W. says:

    I would add Lisa’s tiny hearts with the initial of each of my 4 children, my 2 sons-in-law, my granddaughter and my dear husband. Then I could continue adding hearts as the family continues to grow.
    Great giveaway

  195. Mary Jo Smith says:

    I am not sure if I would customize the necklace at all…I love the story behind it! But, if I were to customize it, I’d change it to “blessed” to serve as a little reminder throughout my day. :)

  196. cute – sign me up for the drawing :)

  197. DanelleB says:

    Very inspiring!!!

  198. I’ve never seen her designs so thank you for introducing them to me. I think I would customize it with the word…thankful…I have been blessed and I always want to have a thankful heart and not take anything for granted, which sometimes I do.

  199. Patience, I think I’d put patience…something I work for each day. Great give away.

  200. I’d put Grace on it to remind me that it is because of His Grace I am saved.

  201. Denise Hunter says:

    I would put Choices on the necklace. Yesterday I told my 14 year old son how proud I am of the choices he makes and it made me think of all the choices I make every day. I am also trying to teach my children this lesson.

  202. I would put the names of my two children on the necklace, so that I could always keep them close to my heart!

  203. Cindy E. says:

    Oh she makes such pretty things. I’m not sure how I would have a piece personalized at this moment. I need to think about it, but I’m checking my fave blogs on break at work and don’t have time to do both. Wanted to make sure I got entered, though! Thanks for the opportunity and for sharing Lisa’s beautiful work!

  204. I would put the names of all my children on it…4 with me and my little girl in Heaven…

  205. Amanda Guthrie says:

    I am due with our first child this August, so I would definitely customize it with something about the baby- name, initials, or DOB. I’ve been searching for something to commemorate this amazing step in our lives, so I would love it if you would choose me! Pleeeeeeeease!

  206. I have been trying to work on being present with my kids and not just reacting to their behavior, so I’d want to personalize a necklace to remind me of this. Maybe Breathe, or Be Kind. Thanks for the chance to win.

  207. This year my word is Listen. I am trying to listen to others including my friends, my husband and to God; to the sounds of nature and also to my heart. We get soooo busy in our day to day lives we forget to stop and smell the roses and to listen to what is going on around us. I would love a necklace to remind me to Listen:)

  208. Courtney J says:

    I would have it stamped w/ “Phillippians 4:13″ to remind me that, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

  209. Lisa Roberts says:

    I would simply put my twins birth date on it. 11.01.2002

  210. Wow, Lisa does beautiful work. I would probably put “remember”. Yes, that’s odd, but I recently returned from a trip to DRC (Congo) and I’m a bit haunted by what I saw. I don’t ever want to forget the children I visited and the country I love so dearly. Thanks for the chance to win – you always have such fun things going on! :)

  211. J Simmons says:

    Sooo not original – but i would also put LOVED on the necklace, and give it to my daughter for a high school graduation gift. Beautiful jewelry, and very much my (and my daughter’s!) style.

  212. Jennifer S. says:

    Very nice necklaces. I would probably put thankful. For I am thankful for so many things in my life right now.

  213. Susanne N. says:

    i would either stick with “loved” or “love never fails”–just celebrated our 16th anniversary and would LOVE this!

  214. I love these necklaces but fortunately for me I have too many kiddos to fit on a necklace! So I really like the idea of a meaningful word and “go slow” is fantastic!

  215. Jen Small says:

    I think “Choose Happiness” or my kids’ names…hmmm, decisions, decisions…maybe I need two! :)

  216. Just a small, simple cross because I am loved by my Savior…there’s no greater love!

    Have a great day!

  217. I would put the kids name on it and maybe find a word that defines me right now (i have to think about that) but I bought my friend a necklace from Lisa last year and it is beautiful!

  218. I would choose faithful, because of a favorite Mother Teresa quote: “be Faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”

  219. I would put be strong on it and give it to my 21 year old daughter. She’s in ROTC and will go into the Army as a second lieutenant next year. She’s beautiful, both inside and out, and I pray she will be strong in her faith and what she knows is right as she makes this major change in life.

  220. I would choose the word “thankful”. I’m thankful for everything that I have in my life, but especially thankful that we are now getting my daughter’s Epilepsy under control. First time in her entire life!!

  221. I would put SMILE on mine. As a reminder for myself but also to however reads it :D

  222. I would put “patience” on it which is my one little word this year.

  223. delight in life!

  224. Renew. My goal this year is to renew my dedication to nutrition and fitness for myself, and find creative ways to teach my son hoe to reduce, repurpose and recycle!

  225. I just started to follow her Blog and love her jewlery and would love to have some of it!
    I would put my son’s name on the necklace.

  226. I’ve seen necklaces like this before and have never been able to actually decide what to write. My word this year is Revive and it’s the perfect word this year, so I might go with that, or one of the words from the meaning card I made up of my word. I have my word on my wall blocks and I like it there, wearing it is a really good idea.

  227. Her jewelry is so beautiful! I have thought & thought about this and I believe that I would put peace on the necklace. I’m trying to simplify and let things go both mentally and physically this year with the ultimate goal of achieving peace within myself. So, yes, I think peace would be the word.

  228. I think I would have embrace on my necklace to remind me things happen and just embrace them rather than running away.

  229. If she could fit it, I’d love to have the word ‘remember’ on the necklace. That one little word means so much in so many different ways. “Remember who you are.” “Remember to stop and smell the roses.” “Remember to study the scriptures.” “Remember to celebrate the little things.” “Remember…Remember…Remember.”

  230. Lori Jirovec says:

    My friend became the grandma to a set of twin girls born 8 weeks early. Both precious babies are doing great and I would celebrate that with a necklace that said – miracle x 2.

  231. I would put “Jesus Loves Me” – a sweet reminder for when life gets crazy.

  232. If there’s enough room, I would like my name and my boyfriend’s name.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  233. I would put my little one’s name on it.

  234. Hmmmmm. So many choices….. I’m thinking, “Enjoy Every Moment.”

  235. One of my favorite scriptures is “Be still and know that I am God”. Being a mom of six, I am reminding my self daily to be still even in the chaos. It brings me peace. So I would personalize my necklace with Be Still..

  236. “Enough.” I would use the word “enough.” I am enough. My husband and I are enough. My faith in God is enough. Even if I never get pregnant and the baby I’ve been praying for for 10 years never arrives, my life is enough. My students are enough. My nephews and nieces and godson are enough. My service is enough. I am enough.

  237. I love her stuff. My OLW is patience, which has been tough with my son recently diagnosed with ADHD.

  238. I didn’t see a way to customize this particular necklace, but if I could, I would add a simple little heart. This magic of this jewelry is that it so “distilled”–it could be called essence jewelry. Lovely pieces!

  239. Clara Ewell says:

    I would write peace

    Hope to win a giveaway

  240. After watching The Secret last night, it was easy for me to pick a word to customize the necklace. I may even change my One Little Word for the year I’m that excited: *Magical* I want magical things to happen and realize (and enjoy) when they do. Thanks! I’m visualizing this necklace around my neck right now! ;)

  241. I would love to win this as I have had my eye on a necklace there for awhile.

    I would either put “adopted”, “Be Still”, or if there was room “U.S.A. – Peru – Ethiopia” (where my family comes from)

  242. I would put “xoxo” it’s my favorite!

  243. Teresa S. says:

    I would put “I Am With You Always”. One daughter lives 4 hours from me and is expecting her second child in August. My other daughter is a new mom and lives 12 hours from me. I think the words would have many meanings and all would let them know they are truly loved.

  244. Julie McD says:

    Wow. So nice. I can narrow it down to three right now: breathe, faith or magic. If I’m lucky enough, I’ll make a decision then or ask you to pick for me! :) Make it a great day. Thanks for the opportunity!

  245. Tracey L. says:

    I would choose “u r loved” or “loved” and give it to my 13 year old daughter. The Jr. High school years are tough for her right now & I’d love to give it to her to remind her that regardless of what happens at school, she is loved, very much, by her Dad & I, but, even more importantly…by Jesus.

  246. I’m coming back after spending time perusing her site- so many lovely necklaces I adore! Most of them I would put my children’s names or initials on. A simple word I might choose would be “grace”- something I strive for.

  247. I would like the word “hope”. And then I would send it to one of my best friends who is in her 3rd remission from cancer as of yesterday! Hurray :) She has been brave, strong, prayed and always kept “hope”. Thanks for the chance to win.

  248. Kim Hopkins says:

    I would put stretch on my necklace. It’s my word this year as in stretch my horizons, strecth and do something I didn’t think I could, stretch my mind by reading more and watching TV less. Love Lisa, thanks for the chance.

  249. I got her “Wishing Star” necklace with my Word of the Year already on it (HEALTH!!!), so I would put another word I need to remember…LAUGH!!!

  250. I’d have the word ‘finish’ put on it. So many things I need to finish this year. Scrappy projects and my weight loss journey at the top of that list.

  251. I would put Breathe. So I remember to when things are stressing me out. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  252. I would put “by the King” because I love that I am loved by the King.

  253. I would put “blessed” because I feel blessed evey day. Thanks for the chance to win. :)

  254. I want to change my entry…can I do that?

    I would put “Everyday Sprinkles” on my necklace…and here’s why:
    I get this spiritual journal that has daily readings/meditations, which I pretty much ignore…which is probably why I have a hard time embracing “hope” and “faith” in my everyday musings. But, I’ve recently started reading them (again) and an entry for March 23rd was “Everyday Gifts” (finding the joy in everyday details), which immediately made me think of your tab “Sprinkles”, which is actually set as my Home Page so every time I come to the computer I see beautiful, colorful and fun ideas/images. Because, by George, if there’s no hope or faith, at least let this life be FUN! So, as a tribute to you and your ability to remind me everyday to see the beauty in the every day I want “Everyday Sprinkles” to be on my necklace!

  255. Lisa’s designs are so beautiful! Although it is not original, I would keep the word “loved” and give it as a gift for my daughter when she gets a little closer to the teenage years and would need that reminder.

  256. I would definitley keep the word “loved” on it! It’s a great reminder – loved by my man and my boys, and loved by my Saviour.

  257. This necklace already seems customised to me. I’ve struggled for a long time with the idea that i could be loved. It’s been very difficult. This would be a constant reminder that weather i understand it or not, or feel it or not. I am loved. To have that with me always would be wonderful i think.

  258. Lisa’s jewelry is beautiful, thank you for the link. I would love to have a necklace that says Northwoods and is adorned with one of her aqua stones. This is where I go to sooth my soul, it holds special memories of my dad, who is no longer here with us. It would be awesome to have this special reminder around my neck to take me there whenever I want to go. If I’m not one of the lucky winners, it will have to go on my wish list (maybe a birthday present to myself!)

  259. Kimberly says:

    What a lovely piece of jewelry – so personal and empowering. I would use the words unconditional love. That love that accepts you wherever you are….always.

  260. ScrapperKaren says:

    I’m thinking a mini frame with a photo of a family group hug for my college girl who’s heading off to Ireland for study abroad!! An everyday reminder in a far way place! Sooo cool! Thanks for sharing!

  261. I would put “te amo” on the back because that is what my girlfriend and I say to each other.

  262. So many ideas have come to me, but one I think would be awesome is: purpose. Everyone has a purpose, it’s just a matter of searching & finding it.

  263. I would also keep the word “loved”. Today in a world that is so difficult, but yet so wonderful, it is important for everyone to be reminded they are loved.

  264. The word that I would like to have is “shmily.” I know that it is not (technically) a word but that is the word that means love in our home. Years ago I read “Chicken Soup for the Couple’s Soul” and in it was a story about an old couple who wrote SHMILY on everything, hid little notes to one another with SHMILY and the grandson could not figure out what it meant. At the end, the man sang a little song to his wife and said,”S-H-M-I-L-Y… See how much I love you.”
    Ever since I read that story (in my first year of marriage) and told my husband about it, we “shmily” each other every chance we get. When I get a “shmily” I feel loved. And now, eleven years later, our daughters “shmily” us and each other.

  265. Wow! O Ilove them- I have one that is kinda the same- They are by “God Tags” and they have my boys birthdays and my anniversary- Way cute- This is the 1st time on your blog- “i will be back”! Have a great day!

  266. Ahhh – SO glad I found your blog through Ali Edwards! I LOVED Simple Scrapbooks years ago (and have gotten away from scrapbooking until recently). I will definitely be seeking some inspiration and “sprinkles” from you once again! The word I would put on a necklace from Lisa Leonard would be LOVED – I know that I am loved by so many people and I would give this necklace to my LOVED daughter Molly when she is older. I may need to send my husband a link to Lisa’s store, my birthday is coming up shortly!

  267. I’d put an A, B & C on it because those are my kids initials and keep the word LOVED.

  268. Karen Borges says:

    I would use the word “hope”. It is the word I often use as my son has cancer and I am always “hoping” for a cure….

  269. I doubt that I would change a thing. Lovely.

  270. HI Stacy!! I think I would love to have a cross on it!! A lovely reminder that God is with us every step of the way. They are so unique – I LOVE THEM!! :) Thank you for this opportunity!! :)

  271. Penny Grimsley says:

    Love this! Love the simple message, the simple style AND the beauty in being reminded to breathe and remember. =) I would add ETERNALLY to loved. It would remind me of my Saviour’s love of me and my forever love of my husband and my children.

  272. Lovely necklace. I would have it inscribed: family = loved. I would hope that all of our family will choose to love and to feel that they are loved.

  273. Julie1916 says:

    I would leave it just the way it is. I live quite a ways from any family and one year when they were coming to visit, my mom made beaded bracelets on the way to take up some of the time. The one she made for me says exactly that, loved. I was afraid if I wore it, it would break. I strung it inbetween two knobs in my van. Now whenever I listen to the radio, I know that I am loved.

    I would leave it as is…it’s already simple perfection. But to make it my own, I would put the first initial of my husband and 2 children on the back, separated by a dot.

  275. I would imprint the words “Just Breathe” because that’s what I need to remember to do just now! My 8 yo son broke his leg over spring break and is in a huge cast and a wheelchair for awhile, and I’ve had to step back and “just breathe” many times since his little accident a week ago. The dirty house will wait :-)

  276. Cheryl Anderson says:

    I would put the word “ready.” It is my word for the year. I am finishing graduate school in a month and am ready to finish my thesis and my million of clinical hours. I am ready to learn more and ready for the next step in my life.

  277. I would leave as is but with my family’s initials on the back…or above all i could ask or imagine…from Ephesians 3:20,21 my life verse :) . Thanks for a fun giveaway!

  278. I would put hope. Lots of big, heavy stuff going on in our family life right now, but it’s a been a good day and I’m feeling more hope than I have in a long time. :)

  279. Blessed! God is good, all the time!

  280. I would put the word gratitude to remind me that my attitude is a choice!

  281. I would either put “simplify” or “heart” on it. This past year, my husband was out of work for 7 months and I tried to pick up the slack by working more, but my heart was not in it. My heart was at home with my kids. I wanted and NEEDED to be there. My heart literally ached. And now that he’s working, I am striving to get back in the groove of mommy-hood and simplify things. Get back to the basics and be here and be in the moment with them. Thanks for the giveaway- I love her jewelry!

  282. if we could add something to the back – I’d add either my husband and boy’s names or some kind of L + K on the back. My husband just got back from a 5 week military training and may be heading out for a 6 month deployment in the next year, so anything to keep him close to my heart!

  283. I would have my word for the year, details, placed on this gorgeous necklace!

  284. I would leave it just as the designer has created it. That’s what makes it so unique!!! I totally love her style and ambience!!!! Thanks for a chance to win!!!

    Simplify – is my word – life just needs to be simplified more.

  286. Christine says:

    I wouldn’t change a thing. Too often I try to change things to suite my needs – and realize perhaps I should go with the flow more often. It’s already beautiful, why change it? :)

  287. Jinny KL says:

    Simply beautiful! I would keep the LOVED & add Be You, on the back for my daughter who is culminating from elementary school this year and entering the confusing pre-adolescence years! Love to win this for her 11th bday this month. Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  288. I wouldn’t change the necklace as the artist has presented it; it’s wonderful. However, I would attach the very small shrinky-dink heart that my daughter gave me as a very tangible reminder of the love we share.

    Thank you for sharing!

  289. hopefully I did not miss out.

    I would put Mom! because Mom is my word this year and I am working on being a better Mom to my kids – one who says yes! instead of in a minute when they ask me to do something.(still not very good at this but working on it daily)

  290. Kristyn G says:

    I think I might add a little J + K on there somewhere for me and my hubby. we will be celebrating our 7 yr anniversary next monday.

  291. i love it just as is. but might do “Giggle” as sometimes you just need to relax and let your inner child out to see the wonders of life and take the stress out.

  292. Lisa14895 says:

    Ohhhh. I love Lisa Leonard necklaces. Just love them. It might take me awhile to decide what to put on it!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  293. I would put by HIM. To remember my faith always and His greatest love.

  294. I have given this some thought, and I keep coming back to “loved” so I guess I wouldn’t change it! I do have a runner-up, though: “be me” which I’ve taken from Gretchen Rubin’s Happiness Project (in which she reminds herself to Be Gretchen). Either one would be a great reminder on a beautiful necklace.

  295. It’s hard to choose a word, but I think mine would be hope.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)
