Review and Giveaway: $25 Gift Certificate to Lilly Ellen Designs

This Giveaway is Closed.
One thing I love about this Nation of ours is that the entrepreneurial spirit can been found in so many of its citizens. So many people have a dream of starting their own business and get to pursue that dream. Today, with the Internet and sites like Etsy, it is easier than ever to start your own business.

So, today, I want to focus my Made in the USA theme, on a business called Lilly Ellen. Lilly Ellen designs and handcrafts jewelry and clothing. I first found this business through Etsy and then found that they have their own website. The business is family run. Karey, designs and makes all the jewelry. She is assisted by her husband, mom and children in various aspects of the business.



I love all of Lilly Ellen's designs. My favorites are the hand stamped jewelry. I wear jewelry every day, but I do not have a lot of it. I like my jewelry to be unique, simple and beautiful and the jewelry that Karey designs fits that perfectly. I have one of her 1" stamped discs from the keepsake collection. The necklace came very quickly and was beautifully packaged in a tin nestled in shredded red paper. The necklace could have easily been sent directly to someone as a gift. When I pulled out the necklace, I was impressed by the beauty of the lettering. Lilly Ellen offers several different uppercase and lowercase font options. Many of these fonts are not often available with other similar jewelry makers. The piece came on sterling silver ball chain(You can choose an 18" or 20 " chain). The disc is a bit larger than I would have hoped, I usually wear very small pendants, but it is as described, 1". Personally, I love the piece. The quality is amazing and the price is very affordable and less than most of the other hand stamped discs I had seen.

Want One?

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

Two Years Ago . . .

Two years ago today, I was on the other side of the world.  I woke up too early.  Too excited and anxious to sleep.  My husband and I lay in bed, chatting about the day ahead of us.  After years of hoping and praying, the day that felt like it would only ever be in my dreams, was finally here.  It was really real.  And when a dream comes true, and you are in awe of God changing hearts and moving mountains to bring you to a moment, there is little more to do than to pray and praise.  And so, we moved our conversation from our hotel room to the Catholic Church across the street.  Yes, in a land where so few have ANY belief system, God saw it fitting to place us in a hotel that just happened to be across from a Catholic Church.  And so we knelt in the back, as the faithful in the front, finished what must have been the rosary, and prayed.  We prayed our own silent prayers as our ears were filled with the melodious sound of a rhythmic prayer in Mandarin.

As we crossed the street to head b…
