Personalized GIVEAWAY

So... it has been a while since we have done a giveaway. I LOVE unique and personalized items and I LOVE local small businesses! So combine the local, unique AND personalized..... HELLO!!!! I am SO there!

I ran (well... sorta Facebook stumbled) into 4 Girls by Susan Garlin and I was INSTANTLY in love with her beautiful creations! She hand makes necklaces, key chains, pillows, zipper pulls, pet i.d tags and bracelets all the while adding personal touches to make them one of a kind (or 2,3,4,5 + of a kind if you order more than one!)

Did I mention how AFFORDABLE these creations are?! The necklaces start at $13.00, the key chains start at $10.00!


      

CUTE right?!

Susan was AWESOMELY FANTABULOUS and allowed me to review one of her key chains. The process was so simple! I emailed her a photo (that I LOVE), gave her a phrase and the girl's names and I told her she had FULL creative freedom... That was all it took! A few days later..... in my mailbox was a GREAT surprise! You see.... Susan would not give me any sneak peeks! I begged.... but she just laughed at me and said "not for you!" I was so used to seeing her creations, via her Facebook page...... I knew it would be beautiful. BUT I am not one for long awaited surprises. I am HORRID at Christmas! Don't get me wrong... I LOVE surprises... but I am not the most patient surprise-ee. But I KNEW it would be so worth the surprise... So I let her slip on that one! HEHE

Are you ready to see mine?!


TADA! Here is my key chain! The photo is of Mr. Mummie, Pooker, Kit Kat and myself. I chose the phrase "My Loves" and of course their names. I was so excited when I noticed that Susan matched the girls dresses to the background of the main pendant! This was never mentioned.... but what an amazingly special touch! The main pendant is completed with glitter epoxy and one sparkly rhinestone. The photo pendant is completed with clear epoxy for protection! Then there are three colored beads and a heart shaped (sparkly) charm.

The key chain feels very well made, I can find any spot that looks like it would fall off or get damaged. With everything attached to the key chain, it is surprisingly lightweight (which is a GREAT plus!) These would make amazing gifts for family or friends, I think I will be ordering some for family!

Just to show you the size.... here is a comparison to a quarter. The photo pendent is just about the exact size as the quarter.



Think of the possibilities:
Grandma necklaces (a photo pendant for each grand baby and matching charm for their personalities.)
Family key chains (like mine!)
A breastfeeding journey necklace! Use your FAV breastfeeding photo and pick matching charms! OMG! How awesome would that be! A way to ALWAYS keep your journey close to your heart!

Really the possibilities are endless! BUT for one of you... your possibility will be FREE!!!! EEEKKKKKKKEEEERRRRS! Yupp! We have one personalized key chain OR personalized necklace up for grabs! So here is what we have for you:

ONE necklace: Complete with 1 main pendant, 3 bead charms and 1 silver charm. The necklace is a 24" ball chain.

OR


ONE key chain: Complete with 1 main pendant, 3 bead charms and 1 silver charm.

So how excited are you?! Now you know how I like to have some fun with our review and giveaways... and I am ALL about EASY entries! This one will be no different. So drink your lemon tea and practice your singing voices! 'Cause we are about to GET THIS PARTY STARTED!

**4 Girls by Susan Giveaway will end on Monday October 1 at 6:00 pm EST. **


a Rafflecopter giveaway




**Susan was kind enough to give me my personalized key chain at no cost AND is offering one key chain or necklace for one of our Mummies. The review is my honest opinion. PHEW got THAT out of the way!**

Good luck Mummies!!!!
