Carpe Diem - Giveaway



This week's giveaway is sponsored by Susan of Moondog Treasures.  Susan's love of yoga and art was the inspiration for Moondog Treasures, which focuses on mala bracelets, thai silver pendants on beaded strands, soldered pieces, stamped pieces, and jewelry made from PMC (precious metal clay). Every year Susan donates 54% of all sales from Moondog Treasures' mala bracelets to charity.


How to enter: As people who are constantly focused on where we have come from and where we want to go, it is easy to lose sight of here and now.  This day, happening all around us, has so much potential for happiness and inspiration.  To enter this giveaway, simply leave a comment (here or on Facebook) and tell us one thing you love about your life, right now, in this moment.  For a BONUS entry, share this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter (don't forget to tag us, @dfwcraftshows) and comment below letting us know that you have done so!  Please don't forget to leave an email address, if I cannot contact you then you cannot collect your prize!

Contest ends at 10:00PM on Tuesday, March 06, 2012.  Winners will be announced Wednesday, March 07, 2012.  Entries open to the US only.

Congrats, Lisa Cox!  You are the lucky winner of a Carpe Diem Necklace from Moondog Treasures, a $27 value.  This tiny silver square pendant is hand-stamped with the Latin words "carpe diem" (seize the day). The pendant is made of silver precious metal clay and dangles from a delicate sterling silver chain.  PMC is more pure than sterling silver. It contains particles of pure silver mixed with an organic binder. When the binder is burned away during firing, it leaves a pendant of 99.9% pure silver.
