September Giveaway

first i want to say a big heartfelt "thank you" to everyone who has sent their support to me the past couple of weeks. it's most definitely been rough, and i truly have appreciated all the kind words. D's surgery did go well. the first day of recovery was kind of rough for both of us {considering as i mentioned before i wasn't used to seeing him in such a state}. but really by the next day he was back to his normal {read: grumpy old man} self. and i was able to breathe again. he has been doing really well with recovery. so thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

i know i'm completely behind with the giveaway for this month. the last couple of weeks just really drained me of my energy. but better late than never, right?! i'm really excited about this giveaway too considering that this woman gave me a huge pick-me-up in the midst of all my anxiety. several weeks ago i was checking out the FB page for Treasure Beans and i ran across her "Little Critter Sets." she had the cutest froggy pebbles and i just had to get it. last week, my pebbles arrived...

me & Juju

Mommy & Julius
i just really love the way Julius' froggy looks. it reminds me of him so much. i put the pebbles right next to him on his special spot on our dresser. love them!
the giveaway:
so i contacted Casey from TB again, and ordered another pebble for this month's giveaway. here is the pebble the winner will receive, hand-painted by Casey. it's called "Mother with baby angel in a shawl by the sunset."

'Pure & Tender, hand-painted scene of a precious, sunset moment. A mother keeps her baby angel warm in a colourful, glittery shawl while sitting in a rocky terrain. Measures 2"'

how to enter:
to enter the giveaway {BLMs only, please}, just leave a comment listing some of the sites that have helped you memorialize your precious baby{ies}. i'm always searching for new ways to memorialize my baby boy, so i could use some more ideas, especially as Oct approaches. i always seem to get a bit of peace and comfort each time i do something for Juju. i will keep the giveaway open until fri, sept 16th. and i will announce the winner on sat the 17th.

OMGoodness! I absolutely love your little frog pebbles! Casey is amazing and does some amazing work! I love my little "treasure bean" as well.

Since I have one already, I'd love to enter this giveaway for a friend of mine. Her son was born still on June 28th of this year. We have known each other since high school.

The Midnight Orange is another great site. She makes sculptures. I have not had the pleasure of owning one myself but I know several BLM's that have her pieces and they have nothing but good things to say.

♥ Juju ♥ You are always close to my heart dear friend. ((hugs)) Sending so much love you way.

I get all my ideas from you girl! you are my source of inspiration in terms of remembering Adrian, and I need to thank you for that. Many hugs. I always think of you and little precious Juju, and I send you encouragement and good thoughts.

I really love pinwheelsfromheaven.blogspot.com. She will make a little customized pinwheel for her garden with your child's name on it. And she will add things that remind you of your baby. I loved Gage's! Love the frogs!

http://www.october15th.com/ is one of my favorite sites to buy things from.

http://www.supportourribbons.com/ I love this site because I can make and personalize my car magnetic with pics and words about my son instead of a generic one.

I love the Froggies, this is so beautiful! Your giveaways are always just lovely! I have a few sites off the top of my head (aside from TB of course!)...Stitches of Love, Remembering Our Babies Memorial Boutique, To Write Their Names in the Sand, Pinwheels from Heaven, My Forever Child, Molly Bears, I'm sure I could think of more:)

You are such a strong woman and I enjoy reading your blogs all the time.

Just wanted to see how you are doing and say that I'm thinking of you and your beautiful Julius. I think the months leading up to the year mark are almost harder than the day itself.

I've been thinking of you a lot today, Tiffany. And I have to say, at the risk of possibly sounding ridiculous, there's something about that frog that really does capture the essence of your beautiful boy. I also have to say, I'm totally inspired by your monthly giveaways...your generosity of spirit in the face of so much pain gives me hope and courage.
