she sells sea shells...

Amelie @ Beach 5/10


Funny how a little girl, born in Utah, was destined to be a beach babe.

Or maybe it isn't strange at all. Her family is beachy through and through. She must have picked us with this in mind. It's still a little chilly at the seaside, but that doesn't stop us.

It's been a while since I had a give away. Let's have another, just for kicks. Waddaya say?


starfish necklace giveaway

Leave a comment to enter to win the above necklace. It is made with rough cut aquamarine beads and silver. The center stone is amazonite. If you take a fancy to this piece, and really pine to win, twitter about the giveaway and I'll throw your name in the hat twice. Blog about it and you are in it thrice. Make sure to let me know your doings so you get your rightful comeuppance.

And if you aren't lucky, don't despair. I'm unlucky too. You aren't alone. Pop over to the shop and see what lovelies are to be had there.

Beauties such as these "Mermaid Earrings":

Oh and FYI, embroidery patterns coming soon to a blog near you. In keeping with today's theme, here's the mermaid from my High Seas set.

It has been too long since I've been to the beach! The necklace is simply beautiful!

Shane, Megan, CJ and R-Baby said...

What a pretty little thing...and the necklace is gorgeous too! I myself am a UT-born, CA-raised, beach-loving girl at heart. How did I end up in AZ??? Thanks for the generous opportunity!

Jeanette said...

I also love the beach, any body of water really. Born and raised in Phoenix will do that to a girl - water is a luxury.

soveryvicki said...

Molly said...

Well, here's to hoping I win!

Virginia said...

This fourth sister loves the beach! Met my husband there, take the kids all the time. Desktop on computer is the boys and dad emerging from the water dragging their boogie boards. Thanks for giving us things to think about!

Melissa said...

What a gorgeous necklace!

You know me ... I'm always pining over your gorgeous jewelry! And this would be perfect to wear when we come to visit in July. So throw my name in the hat missy!

Give the kiddos a squeeze!

Emily Dawn said...

I would love to have that necklace. I don't have any blue necklaces and it would be lovely to wear to work.

rgraser said...

April, remember me, it is Susan Graser, Jamie's Mom. I would love to buy the necklace and would loveto see more of your jewelry. Your blog is amazing, I love it. You are so dang talented. So happy to see you have three beautiful Heathans.

DizzyLizzy said...

What a great give-away! I hope I win!
And I just have to say that I stumbled on your blog on the day that you first posted about "birth" moms. I have a sister who has shared a similar experience and I was deeply touched by your words. I copied and sent them to my entire family. THANK YOU!!!!

Melissa said...

I'm one of the unlucky ones who never wins these drawings. But I still have hope that someday I will so I always try. Love your blog!!!

*KRISTIN TAMARA DAVIES* said...

I think everyone was destined to be a beach babe or bum. Its just that not everyone gets to be or even knows. Living up in Utah now and meeting people who have never even seen the ocean is terrible! Yay for summer/beach!

Terri Fisher said...

I just love your jewelry, and this is in my new favorite color! It sure does look inspired by the beach! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Jen said...

I love it and your chubby baby too! Good work April!

Mark and Stefani McCune said...

Beautiful!!! Aquamarine is my birthstone & it looks great with black! LOVE your jewelry

Faux Martha said...

Thanks for letting me peek in on your blessings....

fancyscrapper said...

Oh I do so love the beach! It makes your lovely give-away so much the better! We homeschool and therefor indulge in a month at the beach in the Fall if we can afford it. It's still hot enough to swim, but the crowds are all gone home. *sigh*

Jenn said...

Thanks for the chance at winning one of your beautiful creations! I'm still in love with your mermaid ;0)

elizabeth kartchner said...

Elizabeth said...

Ummm--I'm not presumptuous to assume that you are aware of my love of mermaids (my daughter is one!), but I'm popping over to your shop for those earrings. Why have I missed them?

Bonafyde said...

I am a mermaid who has become bewitched by your jewels please throw my name into the hat!

Cindy at LottieBird said...

I'm rolling the dice. Pick me! Pick me!

Leslie said...
