oooh, a Giveaway!

I am so excited to finally be doing a giveaway!

I thought it was time to thank all my readers and followers for enjoying and being such a huge part in my blog!  

Yes, I do it as an outlet for myself, but I also do it for YOU!

So today I have a few items that I'll be giving away.

As with most giveaways, the rules are simple.

1)  Follow me via GFC and leave me a comment telling me you did so.

2)  Follow My Lively Mind on Facebook and leave me a comment.

3) Follow me on Twitter and leave me a comment.
 3) Blog, Tweet, or post a Facebook message about the giveaway and leave me the link in a comment.

Easy peasy.  You can get up to 4 entries!

 The items in the giveaway are pretty special I think.  

These are from a store from where I live called Plowsharing Crafts. 

From their site:  
'Plowsharing Crafts is a non-profit Fair Trade store dedicated to providing vital, fair income to artisans in over 40 developing countries by selling their handicrafts and sharing their stories. We work with artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed. This income helps pay for food, education, health care, and housing in developing regions around the world.'

 The first item is a really pretty bracelet made out of some really cool looking stones. It comes with a really cute tag {sorry, I already took it off, but will still bad!}  It has a cute little quote that states, 'venture forth with good karma on your body.'  
Sounds good to me...good karma is always a plus!

 The next item is a really cute and unique ring.  You wanna know why it's unique?  Because it's made out of guitar strings.  Yep, pretty cool, I think.  I bought one for myself and I love it.  It's small & simple, yet it really stands out because of the way it's twisted and is put together on the top.  I'm able to wear mine on my middle finger and I have average sized fingers so you can wear it on about any finger.  This one didn't come with a card or anything so I'm not sure who made it, but they sure are talented!
sorry, don't mind the ragged hang nail ....

The final cute gift is my favorite.  I had these when I was a kid and lost them.  I was so glad to run into them again that I bought myself another set, again. These are worry dolls.  Have you ever heard of them?  It's such a cute idea.  The legend is, when you go to bed at nite, tell one worry to each doll and then place under your pillow.  As you sleep the dolls take away your worries!  This cute bag comes with 10 little, cute dolls.  Lord knows we could all probably use a set. 

The giveaway will run from Friday the 13th thru the next Friday the 20th @ 1159p.

Good luck to all of you and THANKS again for being a part of my blog.  I love each and every one of you!
