I carried some pendants with me to IZEAfest with a few different intentions. I was planning on doing some give-aways and I always keep John's practice in mind, and for those who do not know, when John goes out to sell at shows and markets, and sometimes just when John goes out, he asks for guidance from his higher power to show him someone who he should make a gift to, and that is what I did. First the give-aways were not working as planned. Even my friend Connie had one that no one responded to. Now if you got on stage to give-away something away, the crowd...ME included, went crazy... but as far as people paying attention to Twitter streams, not so much... I did pay attention and won a Sweet grill set from Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce and Life In The House Of Blue. Which BTW is Really good! We grilled steaks last night and I used as part of marinate sauce...the steaks were so good no need for any dippin' sauce.
Here is me kissin' Susan after she gave me my prize... you can read more about it her post 2nd IZEAfest Winner!! Be sure to check out her blog... she is a sweetHEART and I am honored to call her friend.
So one give-away was successful. Christine aka starryskye81 is an AWESOME Chick! She is fun loving, super sweet and a WICKED Designer. Check out her site at Starryskye Designs -especially if you are in the market for some design work done…you know me, I would not steer you wrong…great great designer. She also is now the PROUD owner of a Dylan Blue original. I decided to give out the Turtle one since we were at SeaWorld (& I couldn't find the dolphin one, which is now located, so must be meant to sell to someone on etsy.). I am so excited she won it..she deserves it..a mom who's husband is in the Military. Here she is wearing it and we hope she ENJOYS it and it brings good fortune her way!
The next Dylan Blue original went to Connie (same Connie as mentioned earlier- she has several blogs, so click on this name and her name above for 2 different, wonderful blogs). Connie DESERVED a gift for WAY TOO many reasons to list here.. she JUST DID and I knew it. SO here she is ROCKIN' her gorgeous Butterfly..so appropriate because the animal symbolism of the butterfly is about profound changes of the soul. And Connie is a free open spirit who adapts (changes) and walks with dignity through it! Love you Connie!
The last Dylan Blue that was given was actually given after my trip, as I pulled into town and waited for a pizza to take home with me to get outta cooking. The person who received it IS VERY SPECIAL to me and it ended my trip on a GLORIOUS note! Enough said.
All in All it was a blast. Hopefully a few people left knowing that Dylan Blue jewelry is beautiful... but honestly that is not important... the SMILES you see above ARE! Thanks Ted and IZEA!
