Blue Soul Designs Giveaway

It’s Friday the 13th. Do superstitious days like this bother you?  I always feel like there is an air of creepy in the air.  I think it’s because I watched too much Dateline as a child.  Anywho, I think we should start this Friday the 13th off right……with a fun giveaway!

Have you seen the rings over at Blue Soul Designs?

Sarah (the lovely lady behind the great designs) contacted me about hosting a giveaway.  Yes, please!  How cute are these rings?

Sarah is recovering from a mold illness and Lyme disease. She needed an outlet and a way to help offset some medical costs so she opened her Etsy shop.  Sarah’s designs reflect her love of the beach and nature.  Many of her designs use natural stones.  I was shocked at how affordable her rings are.  Kind of seems like highway robbery! 

Sarah is also offering free shipping for all Décor and the Dog readers.  Just enter FREESHIP when you check out!

Would you like a chance to win one of Sarah’s beautiful creations?

  • PRIZE: One ring of your choice from Blue Soul Designs
  • TO ENTER (required):  Visit Blue Soul Designs and pick your favorite ring.  If you have some extra time you can also tell me about a New Year’s resolution that you made.  Have you kept it or is it already a distant memory?  Your comments keep me entertained at work.  (Oops.)
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: January 15, 2011 at 11:59 PM CST
  • NUMBER OF WINNERS: One
  • OTHER STUFF: The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on January 16th.  Check back to see if you are the lucky winner!

***I was in no way compensated for this post.  I just think Sarah is a pretty talented lady and I thought you all would think so too !  Do you have an Etsy shop you’d like to promote? E-mail me!***

Also, I would like everyone single one of you to click here and vote for Kelly’s Upholstered Platform Bed. Do it.  Now.  Is the peer pressure getting to you?  Actually I just really like Kelly…and her bed…and I think you should vote for her.  If you want to.  Love, the bossy blogger.

  1. I love the Black Sardonyx Semiprecious stone ring! I feel like it's an eye!

    My New Year's resolution was to keep the kitchen clean (I know, not that exciting). My hubby and I are really into cooking and doing crazy things so the kitchen only gets cleaned right before we trash it again. So far I am holding to my resolution!

  6. My fav is the orange and light jade colored ring. SO gorgeous! My sort-of resolution is to lose 10 lbs before a trip to California in February (like that's gonna happen.... ha!).

  7. I love the Natural Turquoise wrapped in silver wire :)
    Hmmmmm, New Years Resolution - to be more organized (Xmas gifts got mailed late this year). Since I have a birthday card getting mailed today for a birthday tomorrow, I'd say I'm not doing so well...................

  8. I love the Purple & Earth colored ring.

    One of my New Year's Resolutions is to get organized and do more crafts...I love them but don't have time because I'm not organized!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love the swarovski crystal wire wrapped ring! I have some earring that would match perfectly:)

    It's not much for a resolution, but I'm a big reader and I have always wanted to keep track of my books. I joined goodreads.com and am now keeping track of my books for 2012!

  10. First favorite, ocean colored glass bead. Second favorite, amazonite. Third favorite, purple sodalite... The more I look at them, the more they all become my favorites! I can't believe these prices!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. well... I went ahead and bought my first favorite, just in case. and then pinned about 8 others. Great giveaway!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love the Black Sardonyx and the Blue Jasper. As for New Year's resolutions, mine is to take better care of myself.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Agreed on the creepiness of today, for me it stems from too much Unsolved Mysteries as a child. I digress.....

    Voted for the bed, so cute!

    Love the Amazonite wrapped ring. I am magnetically drawn to anything turquoise! All of the rings are gorgeous, and the prices are great!

    I have set a resolution for each month, as we are redoing our house room by room. So a room every month or two..... Going well so far!

  14. Whoa, that really is highway robbery. Those are gorgeous rings! I think my favorite is the snowflake obsidian. I think. I might change my mind in 10 minutes because they're all so beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I actually really like the Natural Pearl Wire Wrapped Ring you featured up top! Simple and pretty.

    My new years resolution is pretty easy to keep -- I told myself I wouldn't let my clean laundry sit unfolded in the basket for more than a day.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like the Earth colored wire wrapped ring! Thanks for the giveaway. :) My resolution was to make my lunch the night before for each work day. (There's nothing worse than being late because my tuna fish sandwich took too long to make.) So far, so good!

  17. I like the Wire Wrapped Ring, Silver colored bead because it's small and simple.

    In 2012, I'm not going to waste my unpaid lunch hour anymore. It only takes me 10 minutes to eat, so this year I'm going to read for the the rest of the time instead of heading back to my desk early or frittering away 50 minutes I'm not being paid for on chatter I don't enjoy. It's only January 13th, but I'm already through 2 thousand page books and onto a third.

  18. I love the natural pearl wire wrapped ring!

    I can't accomplish my resolutions until I am cleared to start running again. Which reminds me, BTW, I think we should run a race together. For realz. I promise you'll like it, or I'll never make you do it again.

  19. I really love quite a few of the rings, but the one that caught my eye first is the 10mm Blue Jasper Semiprecious Stone, wire wrapped ring I love blue and silver and it tends to go with everything I wear!

    2012 I would like to read a few more books as well as cook more but so far I've really only done the reading aspect!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love the Wire Wrapped Ring in natural. So pretty. I don't make resolutions but do try to make each year better.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like so many, but really like the sea glass and amethyst.

    ReplyDelete
  22. These are so affordable! Love them all but my favorite is the Amazonite Wire Wrapped Ring.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love the amozonite wire wrapped ring. Beautiful!

    As for resolutions... I posted mine at http://mom2will.blogspot.com/2012/01/our-contract.html

    Not too funny to laught at while you work. But the amount of baby weight and fat I have makes me laugh at times... then cry. ha ha (oh and my "baby" is 3 now- um- so I guess I have to find a new excuse, right?)

    Have a good weekend!

  24. I like the amazonite

    I don't make resolutions...I always end up breaking them

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  26. Mmmm. I'm enjoying the looks of that blue agate coin ring. But they are all pretty awesome!

    I like the Purple & Earth colored. Fun shop!

    My New Year's resolution is to be more healthy. I hope that losing weight will come as a result of that, but eating more organic/less processed and being more active are the top priority. So far, so good!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the Wire Wrapped Ring, Silver colored bead because it reminds me of a ball of yarn. My New Year's resolution was to unsubscribe from unwanted email lists. It has been pretty good.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the Amazonite Wire Wrapped Ring! So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  30. The orange and light jade ring is my favorite, by far! New Year's Resolution? Continue eating organically as much as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the Wire Wrapped Ring, Carnelian Semi-precious stone, it is gorgeous and so unusual! Love the color!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I heart the bossy blogger. THANK YOU my friend!!

    These rings are beautiful. I love the
    Amethyst Wire Wrapped Ring. I'd wear it every day and think of that time you used peer pressure to help me get votes. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oooooh - pretty! I think I like the Blus Jasper the best. As for new years resolutions, I'm another 2 lbs down, woop woop! I'm beginning to feel like it's going to be harder and harder to lose though... It's nice to be close to your goal, but shouldn't that mean it gets easier, not harder?? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Like the crystal wire wrapped ring!hope I win!

  35. I went to her site, and I was like, "I like that one, no that one, no definitely that one!" What talent!

    I finally chose the 10mm Blue Jasper Semiprecious Stone, wire wrapped ring.

    As for my new years resolution...I don't think I really made one, but I have made the bed every day since the first. Does that count? :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I use to like you, Michelle. Then you had to go and make me decide on my favorite ring from a selection where each one is as beautiful as the one before. I simply can't do it. I would love to win any one of the rings.

    BTW, my New Year's resolution was to be more decisive. Guess I blew that one.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would choose the breast cancer awareness ring.

    New Years resolution? I can't take the failure so I don't do them.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like the pearl/silver, but as the others have said they are all beautiful! I just tend to wear neutral things.
    I should get the lyme disease ring since my name is Sarah and I also have lyme.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love her rings. My favorite is the amazonite. Gorgeous colors.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the earth colored one.

    My resolution was to walk every day, alternating which dog I take with me. (because there is NO way I'm walking both of the little monsters at the same time)

    Progress: total fail. No more details, I don't want to embarrass myself with how badly I fail at my resolution.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'd go with the amazonite wrapped ring. So pretty!

    I resolved to do 20 push ups a day. So far, so good. Last year, I did 10 push ups a day.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm having a really hard time picking one, but I love the Lyme Disease Awareness ring. The green is awesome.

    As far as a New Year's Resolution... I didn't really make one, so I guess I've been totally successful at not changing anything. Go me!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like the natural pearl wire wrapped. Gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the amazonite wire wrapped! Gorgeous! One of my new year's resolutions is to be brave and start my own blog! You are helping me in that endeavor! Thanks for the giveaway:0)

    ReplyDelete
  45. The Lyme Disease ring is my fav. I can't pass up the green.
    I didn't make a New Year's Resolution as much as I did goals for the new year (is it the same thing?). One was to have a no computer/TV Sunday so that we focus on doing stuff as a family. I can't remember if we've kept this goal, but I'm reminded to try it this weekend. We'll see if we can do it.

  46. I love the lyme disease awareness ring!

    ReplyDelete
  52. What an awesome giveaway (and a great Etsy site - I've already bookmarked it for future birthday gift shopping!)

    My favorite is the Blue Agate Coin Stone Ring.

    I don't do New Year's resolutions, but this year I am trying to make more of an effort to send handwritten cards/notes to people in my life "just because" as a way to let them know how grateful I am that they ARE in my life.

    Thanks again for hosting this awesome freebie, and keep up the great work on the blog - I love it!
