i think i would go with either the names of my kiddos (the 6th one is due in october . . . so it's a challenge to get them all on one piece of jewelry) or a favorite scripture (i'm thinking romans 15.13, but there are so many that i need to be reminded of often!)
thanks!
shana

Rachel said...

Oh my goodness. I love this.

I would do Philippians 4:13 -- I can do everything through HIM who gives me strength.

Wonderful give-away. You bless the blogging world, my friend!

rachel e. said...

I would put one of my favorite bible verses:

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it." Isaiah 30:21

I think it's comforting no matter where I am!

Shari said...

Very Cute! I would put "Worry Doesn't Empty Tomorrow of its problems. It Empties Today of Its Strength"

I have to remind myself of this phrase a lot!

Erin K said...

I love this bracelet! My favorite quote is:
"Well behaved women have rarely made history."

Sarah @ 365 Glimpses of John Parker said...

I would add 2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

Of course cut down a little! :)

Crystal said...

Gorgeous! I would put my new favorite verse (and daily reminder) from our recent missions trip: John 3:30 "Jesus must become greater, I must become less." What a better way to stay focused than with a beautiful bracelet ;)

Jenni said...

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all
Emily Dickinson

Jennay said...

I love this bracelet!! I would choose my favorite quote from Maya Angelou:

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. "

Love this quote!! Great giveaway!! =)

tara said...

I would put some of the lyrics from the song we danced to at our wedding as a reminder. "All the things that you will do, you know I'm standing next to you, and darling I will see you through the rest of our lives."

wishful nals said...

oh man, i feel like i could use a little message this week. :) i'd put on it: count your blessings instead of sheep.

Marie said...

This is beautiful Erin. If I won this bracelet, I would put "Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised." Prov. 31:30 I love this verse...it reminds me to fear the Lord and have a loose grip on the things of this world. Have a blessed day!

Kendra said...

That is a really pretty bracelet! If I were to win, I'd want "Look after my heart, I've left it with you" on mine. I'm a huge Twilight fan.

Erin K said...

Actually I think the quote I just left is actually supposed to read
"Well behaved women seldom make history" bu Laurel Thatcher Ulrich.

Although I've seen it on shirts as
"Well behaved women rarely make history."

Tracy Williams said...

"Promise me you'll always remember...you're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

It would be a present for my daughter. :)

Jacky {The Sweetest Petunia} said...

Erin, how beautiful...I love the copper heart option.

I would put select phrases from 1 Corinthians 13 on the bracelet {along with the copper heart}. I've been discouraged because of some circumstances in my relationship, and the reminder of what perfect love is would be great for me right now.

Thanks, Erin. :)

Katie said...

Oh, that is so beautiful! If I were to win I would also put:

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Blair said...

oh, I LOVE IT.

I would put this quote, which is my favorite:
"I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think." ~Rumi

It reminds me to be unique, to be accomplished, to be me & know that who I am is fearfully & wonderfully made.

Brassy Apple said...

I love chunky jewelry!

I would put
"The best way to have a little bit of Heaven in your home, is to have someone you love in Heaven"

or

"Believe in Today....Your life is now"

Thanks!!!

Heidi Jo said...

oh my word...this is EXACTLY what i have been waiting for. i love my two necklaces, and wanted a bracelet next....but none could fit the wordiness of this WOMAN. or more accurately the size of my brood. i have five beautiful children, and this would be the most precious thing to me.

"The keepers of my heart:
NICHOLAS, OLIVIA, KATHARINE, ANDREW, ELIZABETH"

Naomi @ Joyfully Seeking said...

So pretty!
I would put this quote by Martin Luther King Jr. on it "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. "
A great daily reminder :)

Superchikk said...

I love it!

I would put a reminder to myself that God's timing is perfect. Something like this:

"I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord...
Caedmon 08-31-2007"

just me and z said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE that! I would put:
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." --Dr. Leonardo Buscaglia
If it fit... lol. Or I would put my favorite verse--Jeremiah 29:11.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Corinne said...

This bracelet is beautiful and it's so fun to be able to customize something to be you. I would put: "Vivi con passione ~ Ridi di cuore ~ Ama profondamente" which is italian for "Live with passion ~ Laugh out loud ~ Love deeply"

*MaryEllen* said...

LOVE this giveaway!
I'd love the bracelet to say: (if I won of course! :P )

"Come grow old with me,
the best is yet to be.
The Ensigns
est 8-June-2007"

Jus and Kat said...

Oh, I LOVE it (the bracelet) AND I LOVE quotes!!! A few of my favorites are:

"Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference."

"When you come to the edge of all the light you know and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly."

"Those that live long lives have much to learn, but those who die young are here to teach." - Bhuddist saying

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." - Albert Einstein


Thanks for the chance!

Dogs.Dogtags and;Stilettos said...

Oh goodness, how beautiful is that!!! Thank you for doing this give-a-way! I would put:

Oh Lord grant that I shall never seek so much to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, or to be loved as to love with all my heart.

It is St. Francis prayer, but it was said by Cpl Eugene Roe Medic 101st Airborne Battle @ Bastogne (Battle of the Bulge)WWII as he tried to care for Soldiers who had no boots, little ammo & practically no food in the dead of winter. It is a constant reminder to me of the sacrifices our Military make each and every day - and as an Army Wife I must do my best to support those Heroes families.

Alicia said...

I can't deside between my favorite bible verse Ps. 100:5 God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever." .........or this quote from a Robert Munsch book.
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be. (I'd save the bracelet for a gift for my daughter on her 8th birthday.)

Rebecca said...

Just my kids' names:
Kaylee Ray
Dallin Douglas
HOLLIS JAY
Ephram Randall
Watson Henry

Jolie said...

It's not where you are, but who you are with that really matters.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Erin Sweetie...
My gosh, just when I think you can't get any better with your items, you bring out even more awesome one.

I wouldn't change a thing. I would want the bracelet as is. Love the quote, and that little hammered heart is how mine has been feeling of late. I have been searching for a little HOPE, as I have been ill since May. That heart would be a constant reminder of God's love for me. Right where I can see it each and every day.

Erin sweetie, thank you for the wonderful opportunity to win such a beautiful design of love. You are a very giving woman.

Many country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Nicole said...

The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self.

Designer Jules said...

Very cool...I dont know, maybe I would put my wedding date and then a quote from one of our readings? That could be cool

Patricia said...

This is just GORGEOUS! I LOVE all your designs!
One quote that I have always loved is:

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ~Dr. Seuss

A constant reminder to be who you are without reservations!

{Amy} said...

Slipcover Girl said...

Gorgeous Bracelet! I would put

"Regrets are a waste of time. They're the past crippling you in the present."
~ Katherine from Under the Tuscan Sun

I constantly need to be reminded it's a journey...not perfection.

wgleaves said...

Kind hearts are the gardens, Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers, Kind deeds are the fruits.

Take care of the gardens, And keep them from weeds.
Fill, fill them with flowers, Kind words and kind deeds.

Shari said...

I think I would put:
FAITH is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see!

My Well Calculated Life said...

My quote would be:

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
Albert Einstein

This quote has always been in a tiny font on the bottom of every resume I have ever sent out. It expresses exactly how I WANT to live my life. There are tough moments but I have to sit back and look at the birds and butterflies and relish the beautiful moment.

Also as an engineer, I love the author and I think its such an unlikely quote from Einstein that it just makes it that much more perfect. =)

Ashley A said...

I would choose my husband and myself = our six babies names.

Patti said...

Trust in the Lord, lean not on your own understanding. Prov. 3:5

HOPE said...

My kids names-
"Mckensi, Brinley, Ellie
You take me by the hand but hold me by the heart..."
Awww, isnt that just precious?!

Her Heatherness said...

This is a beautiful bracelet! I'm always coming up with ideas that I wish would fit on jewelry.... and I love the little heart charm! Thank you for doing the giveaway!

I'm having a really hard time picking just one favorite quote, so I'll tell you two of my favorites. I'd be happy with either one.

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."

I've always loved this quote from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Especially the line about "Not all who wander are lost", which I've wanted to wear on a piece of jewelry for a while now.

And my other quote is from Doctor Who. Every time I watch the episode this is from, it makes me cry when The Doctor says it. I've had a lot of hard things and this just really spoke to me.
(I didn't count the characters, but if it's too long you could cut out the first sentence, and it would still make sense, I think.)

"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things; but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant."

The Tesdalls said...

Wow...another GREAT piece of jewelry!! You are amazing!! I love this bracelet! I love quotes so I would most likely be putting a quote or Bible verse on the bracelet, but I would have to think long and hard about it so I can't decide immediately right now on the spot!;)

mrsrstjr said...

I would love this bracelet! I would have it say "Though we may be apart, our hearts are always together." since my husband is deploying this fall. :)

Becca said...

I would put our family's "theme verse" on there: "Do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God" Micah 6:8 . . . We are getting ready to move into the inner-city to do ministry, and it would be wonderful to have a reminder of why and how we are doing what we're doing!

Cassie said...

I love this bracelet! I just bought my first necklace and would love to add this bracelet to my collection.

I am a reading teacher and therefore my favorite teaching quote is:

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." - William Ward

However, I don't think that would fit so then I would put my favorite life quote:

Do what you can with what you have where you are.
-Teddy Roosevelt

Thanks!!

Lady Em said...

I have never wanted to win one of your giveaways SOOOOOO badly before and i have definitely wanted to win them...here would be my quote, it means a lot to me to set goals and what a lovely daily affirmation to have this littke lovely on my wrist!!

"Take your victories, whatever they may be, cherish them, use them, but don't settle for them."
Mia Hamm

Princess Christy said...

We are the music makers - we are the dreamers of dreams.

GreerAnn said...

This (as is all of your work) is a beautiful piece. I think I would put "In life as in dance, grace glides on blistered feet." As a dance teacher and ballerina, this quote makes a lot of sense to me... it takes a lot of work to make beauty look effortless.

suzanne said...

Tough choice, but today, at this moment, I think I would pick this quote: Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction." Antoine de Saint-Exupert

The Elwells' Weekly said...

Wow! The bracelet is beautiful and so are all of the quotes and scriptures people are putting down! It would be hard to choose but I would go with this as a reminder of our wedding!

"For this is the original message we heard: We should love each other. 1John 3:11 Ron & Erica 3-11-06"

cooperkelly4 said...

My favorite verse from Ruth..."where you go I will go..."

Jessica said...

beautiful bracelet!

i think i would put bits & pieces of proverbs 31 on my bracelet. proverbs 31 talks about the virtuous woman. when my mom passed away, we had certain scriptures from proverbs 31 written on her tombstone.. and i truly hope i can be the type of woman she was.. and she truly was the proverbs 31 woman. and if i won this bracelet, it would help me try to remember to strive to be that person.

jessicacotten@gmail.com

jle819 said...

Love the bracelet! If I won, I would put the following quote on it: "Women are angels.
And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly . . .
on our nice, shiny broomsticks.
We are flexible like that." If I'm the lucky winner, please email me at jody.edwards@yahoo.com Thanks!!!

Elizabeth said...

I love this quote:

You can live as if nothing is a miracle - or
You can live as if everything is a miracle.

Albert Einstein

k. davis said...

oh my... I'm LOVING these!! If I don't win.. I might just have to order one myself.

I would put on my bracelet:

"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." - C.S. Lewis

would that fit? It truly describes who I am... I love that quote!

Theresa said...

I would put one of my favorite bible quotes on it from Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you..."

A Love Worth Waiting For.... said...

I LOVE this!! Thank you for the chance to win this wonderful giveaway!!

I would probably put 2 Corinthians 12:9:

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

I have battled with Ovarian Cancer twice and sometimes I can't help but worry about the cancer returning....however, this verse reminds me that if the Lord did allow the cancer to return HIS Grace will always be sufficient for me! No matter if it's cancer..or whatever else life may bring the Lord had always provided His unfailing and all sufficient Grace!!

suburban prep said...

I would want LIVE LAUGH LOVE on it

I love the idea of this bracelet. I would have to choose between a couple.

Charlene said...

I love this idea....so cute.

I would go with either

Philippians 4:13

-or-

As a mother of 6, my children's names (as the first commentor said, it's hard finding something that can hold 6 kids names!)

Caity Shinnick said...

I live in the beautiful city of Franklin, Tennessee, nestled in the rolling hills. My favorite verse is...

Psalm 121 "I lift my eyes up to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth."

Such a good and true reminder of who carries me through my days, and a wonderful verse to meditate on!

Rebekah said...

I would put a quote from the song "Somebody" by Depeche Mode. That's mine and my husband's song.

"When I'm asleep,
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly"

OR

"Someone who'll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
She'll get my support"
(except I would change the she'll to he'll)

Mama Lungo said...

I would get:

“Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Matthew & Amanda 09.09.05

angela said...

I'd definitely put the quote you used. I need a reminder to be strong, especially after learning that I have to see a breast surgeon for a biopsy. yuck!!!

Mama Lungo said...

or I would get:

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”

Marleah 02.01.07 & Harlan 12.08.09

athena said...

My current favorite is from the late John Hughes via Judd Nelson (aka John Bender).

It reminds me that it's okay if things don't always go my way. Or don't end up perfect.
Because.....

screws fall out all the time, sir
the world is an imperfect place.

And on top of it all, it makes me laugh. Which we don't do often enough in this life.

H is for Hillman said...

My kids names and a bible verse

HOPE said...

I would put my kids names
Mckensi, Brinley, Ellie
You take me by the hand but hold me by the heart....

infertility goddess said...

you are probably expecting inspiring quotes aren't you? Well mine isn't all that inspiring its just something that I tell my kids. A quote from one of my favorite books.

"It is not our abilities that determine who we are it is our choices." Dumbledore (Harry Potter and the SS)

I would give this to my daughter so she can wear it and remember to make good choices so she can be who she wants to be.

Just the Two of US said...

I love this sooo much I would have to put" Reason is our soul's left hand, Faith her right.
Thanks for the chance!!!

I would love to have "This love is difficult but it's real" on there. I know it's a line from a cheesy pop song, but it is SO true.

~*~ Allison ~*~ said...

Ooooh... I'm torn (as usual)

I'm in a 12 step program for overeaters so I'd probably go with the Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, & the wisdom to know the difference

OR

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. ~ Psalms 147:3

Tammy said...

Very pretty! I think I would choose my favorite verses: Proverbs 3:5,6, which says, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all they ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

God blessed our love with three miracles...

Mama Stone said...

Not sure why or how I ran across this quote:

But it sure puts things in perspective.

Joli said...

I would love to have one of these bracelets with the Pledge of Allegiance on it!

I would put a quote by Walt Disney, these are some of my favorite-
"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."
"I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something then educate people and hope they were entertained"
"When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable."

Kaleidoscope Eyes 8 said...

Though if I won one, I would choose "Let it be."

That is my motto. I am eventually going to get it tattooed on my wrist, so I can see it everyday to remind myself not to stress over things I can't change.

Mary Beth said...

LOVE this!! i would put an exceprt from my favorite verse, Ephesians 3:14!

Melissa said...

i would put

"what lies behind us and what lies before us, are small matters compared to what lies within us"

What a great bracelet! Although my quote is short for such a large space, I think it sums up the most important lesson I've learned recently.

I would put,
"Don't postpone joy."

The Wheeler 5 said...

so hard to choose! i loved reading what everyone else said. i really like one that says...

Oh I love this..I'm such a sucker for a great quote. I have 2 that I love..both from one of my favorite books, Wuthering Heights:

"If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger"

"Whatever our souls are made of,
his and mine are the same"

dubiousRN said...

I have been wanting to buy something with the quote "Not all those who wander are lost" by JRR Tolkien.

the thrifty ba said...

mine would say-'if you dont have anything nice, come sit next to me!'
just kidding!
maybe...

Kristine Hanson said...

You're the finest of the fine, take this thought from me. You are what I'd like to be. All the kindly deeds you do make me wish that I were you. You're the finest of the fine. Good old loyal friend of mine. (or bits and pieces of this, whatever would fit!) :)

kelseynsc said...

Love this bracelet! I would put a quote from my father that he used to tell me when growing up that always managed to keep me grounded.

"Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful."

Makes you take a step back and realize how many things you have going for you regardless of whether something isn't going your way.

sheamangold said...

I would probably have to put "love the life you live live the life you love" my fave quote!

Mrs Soup said...

Jacki said...

I love this. I would have my favorite quote on it, which is from george eliot - "it is never too late to be what you might have been."

Mormishmom said...

I think I'd put my favorite quote by Neal A. Maxwell - "Strange, isn’t it—we who wear wristwatches seek to counsel Him who oversees cosmic clocks and calendars." Because I'm always trying to counsel God and tell Him what I think I should be doing. This quote reminds me that He is Omnipotent and that He knows what is best for me.

okcowgirl421 said...

I would put my favorite verse - Jer. 29:11. It's been a favorite for a long time and looking back over the way my life has worked out, even when I thought things were "bad" or they weren't going according to MY plan, they were always going according to God's plan! I was 30 when I got married (late by OK standards) but am married to the most wonderful, Godly man on the planet, and he was so worth the wait, and now we have a three week old son who was worth the wait too! And I know that I have them in my life because of God's plans for my life...but sometimes I need a reminder. This bracelet would be perfect!

I would use a quote from Maya Angelou (because this is how I try to live my life):

People will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how uou made them feel.

carlisle clan conversation... said...

I would put my fav vs on it Romans 12:12, however thanks for the funny!

This has nothing to do with the giveaway, but I saw this funny on vacay last week.."I didn't know when I married Mr. Right, his name was ALWAYS!" Hilarious! Thanks for the laugh and giveaway!

Kristi said...

I have 6 kids - five of them girls - that are growing up way too fast. I would want to put "you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.” Winnie the Pooh for my younger girls.
For my daughter who turns 14 next month, I'd want some of the words to her favorite song
"My wish for you
Is that lhis life becomes all that you want it to
your dreams stay big your worries stay small
I hope you know somebody loves you and wants the same things too."
or I'd do "Have fun stormin' the castle!
Be good.
Remember who you are and that we love you no matter what."
for my daughter that turns 16 this fall, and will start driving and dating and will be leaving for college in a short couple of years These are the things we have been saying to her everytime she leaves the house since she started kindergarten.

Erin said...

My father in law got diagnosed with ALS in May 2003. He just passed away this summer, and through his horrible disease he had two quotes he would use.

It Could Be Worse, and Count Your Many Blessings.

I would put these two quotes on it, with his name at the bottom and give it to my mother in law. :)

Carolyne said...

Beautiful!! I would put this quote from The Little Prince"

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Thank you for your generosity!

Mormishmom said...

Oooh! Or else I would put Joshua 1:9 - Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. It just a super comforting scripture. Because we are truly never alone if we allow the Lord into our lives.

Carolyne said...

I would put this quote from The Little Prince

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Ry and Ally said...

I would give this to my mom and put all of her 8 kids' names on it. She'd LOVE it!!

Kristin said...

So many good quotes, only one bracelet...so hard to decide! I think I'll go with this one by Ralph Waldo Emerson - it seems very appropriate for a bracelet:

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."

Thanks for the opportunity to win! ~Kristin from Windy Poplars

Julie said...

I am a mother of 4 wonderful boys + my husband. Needless to say I find myself surrounded by boys stuff day in and day out, so I have a saying I like to say...

"Being a girl in a boys world isn't always easy,
but I am loving every minute of it."

I would follow the saying with each of my boys names.

THANKS for the chance to win such an amazing design.

nancy l. said...

this bracelet is really cool!! I'm having a hard time choosing a quote but i think i'd go with "Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long". it's from deuteronomy 33:12. i'd love to have that reminder where i can see it as i go throughout my day. thanks for the chance to win!!

tarynn said...

"Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others"
Audrey Hepburn
If that's too long, I like either half of the quote!

LeAnna said...

Oh, this is great! I LOVE braccelets and this one is really unique, which is SO me!

I would put parts of 1 Corinthians 13:
'love is patient, love is kind
Love never fails
These 3 remain: faith, hope & love,
but the greastest of these is love'
07-07-07
(Thats my annivesary)

OR

'Dream as if you'll live forever
Live as if you'll die today'
-James Dean

(I Love that quote!)

Rae... said...

Beautiful! A tough decision to know what to put on it.

Either from Colossioans 3:15 "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts."

or John 15:5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing."

LeAnna said...

Oh or I would put a quote that my grandmother has said for as long as I can remember, that my husband and I now say:

'I love you a bushel
and a peck
and a hug around the neck.'
07-07-07

LOVE THIS!!

Erin said...

Ohh so beautiful! There are two quotes I would choose from... or maybe I'd just buy a 2nd bracelet. I would use the quote shown in the pictures and give it to my mom, who is one of the strongest women I know, AND she loves tea! :) Or I'd pick this quote for myself: "All of us are in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." - Oscar Wilde

I love the bracelet especially with the heart added to it. Id put 2 hearts if that was an option and put a quote on it that was given to me at the hospital with one little change :

Some people only dream of
Angels...

I would love to have that quote, or "You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth."
— William W. Purkey

Silvia said...

I love this bracelet, I hope I win one :D
I would put any of these quotes, that express the love for my baby boy, my miracle my everything.

"There has never been, nor will there ever be, anything quite so special as the love between a mother and a son"

"Watching you grow has been the delight of my life. I look at you and wonder what dreams you will dream, what mountains you will climb, what joys you will have. I know there will be tears and struggles as well, but my prayer is that you will grow into the man you are meant to be."

And this one is simple but so cute:

"twinkle twinkle
little boy
how you fill my heart
with joy."

Emily said...

Do I want to win one? Heck yes I do!

This is such a great idea -- I think I'd have to put my (current) favorite quote on there...

Mystery is not the absence of meaning, but the presence of more meaning than we can comprehend.
--Dennis Covington

Liz said...

either something about gratitude or something about prayer.. both are so important in my life.

{Anne} said...

Oh wow, this bracelet is beautiful! This would be the perfect gift for my children's birth mothers. I love this quote, "Rarely a love is found to last a whole life through, but it happens indeed because it happened between us and you."
It would be the perfect little reminder of how much we love them.
Oh I hope I win. Thanks for this chance!
I love your jewelry!

Maryann @ Domestically-Speaking said...

Ps. 84:10 ~ LOVE this new bracelet!

Mom-mode said...

I'd either put this a read on my son's children's bible:
" And life without Him wouldn't be life at all."

Or John 15:4 "Abide in me."

Beautiful bracelet.

maroon58 said...

oohhh....i love this bracelet! i would put 'shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars' -anonymous

i have always loved that quote and it is so inspirational and full of hope!

Mrs.Smitty said...

This is exactly what I've been looking for. I'll wear this bracelet while hubby is on deployment.

though we have to be apart
we'll always be together
close enough
in mind & heart
to manage any weather

Mr. and Mrs. B said...

I love the quote you have on there, and that's a great quote for this season of my life.

Kal said...

I would put on it... my favorite scripture. Jer 29:11
I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord.

Marin D said...

That is really cool! Tough choice on what to put. I might do the quote, "To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world." Love it!!!

melody-mae said...

So many quotes, so little time!!!
I would put either my favorite verse: jeremiah 29:11
or maybe...1. today is a gift that's why it's called the present. 2.Count your blessings name them one by one. 3. live in the present and make it so beautiufl it will be worth remembering.
I have so much to be thankful for that this might be a hard task to pick something!! LOL

Maybe: I am a Survivor and making every day count!?

Amanda said...

I would put my favorite Audrey Hepburn quote.

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone"

I feel I need to be reminded often these things. I am never alone!!

Julia A. Macias said...

I am not sure yet what I would want..probably my wedding date and one of our favorite scriptures or a quote from our premarital counseling book! Thanks for this giveaway!

Mel B. said...

in memory of my sister and niece who recently passed away...beautiful!

deepintheheartoftexas2 said...

I love that quote by Eleanor Roosevelt. I would like to win the bracelet because my hubby never buys me jewelry.

I would put on the bracelet
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

To remind me that God always brings us through the storms of life. I also love that song.

Vanessamae said...

I think I would put.

Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you are scared to death.

Its my favorite quote and has gotten me through a lot.

Very cute idea, and I love the heart

Our Family said...

"Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness,heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of; the heck with sugar and spice."

Bethany Hamilton

The Eberhardt Family said...

oh, this would have to be cut down more...but this is what my husband quoted when he purposed... it is from the book the alchemist. what a way to always remember that moment!

And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one's dreams would have no meaning.

Victoria said...

I would LOVE to win!! I would put "have a good day." My mom, who married my dad in Thailand, came to America, had my sister, ten years later had me, started her own flower nursery (in her back yard, nonetheless), has been successful for 16+ years, and finally got her citizenship last year..she always says this when we leave the house. it's so simple, but it reminds me of her. and she's the strongest, most influential person i know.

Amy said...

I love this! I would put "life is like an umbrella...it can protect you from the storms of life, or it can poke you in the eye.."

Rachel E. said...

Simply LKJ said...

Omgoodness...so pretty! To pick just one?
My younger daughter would love, Philippians 4:13. She is a volleyball player and lives by that quote. It is her motivation.
The older daughter would stick with her baby quote from Senior Year, "You were born an original, don't die a copy".
The two others that I tell my girls to live by:
R.A.T.S. "rise above the situation"
and
"Be careful what you say and do, for little eyes are watching you, and they want to be you someday."

bethzheart said...

I would probably put "For where your treasure is, there your heart willbe also." Matt 6:21

And the names of my treasures (hubby & kids):

Joshua

Claire
Lena

Susan said...

"It isn't the great big pleasures that count the most; it's making a great deal out of the little ones." Jean Webster

Marcy said...

Oh I love it!! I think I would put a scripture verse on it, just not sure which one! That is just beautiful!

"For my yoke is easy and my burden is light"

-Matthew 11:30

Sarah said...

My husband is the love of my life and a US Marine Who is getting ready to go on another 14 month deployment. This is our 3, and they never get easier!! This quote always helps me and it is what I would put on the bracelet if I win!

Distance between two hearts is not an obstacle, rather a beautiful reminder of just how strong true love can be.

Sarah Jane said...

I LOVE this! I would put a couple verses of scripture that help me (although I don't know if would all fit so maybe just one of these) Philippians 4:6,7. It reads: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Nesha said...

Absolutely exquisite! I would put my favorite scriptures on the bracelet: Lamentations 3:22-23

Alex said...

CUTE!!! i would love this and I know exactly what I would put on it.

"How did a nice girl like me get into a mess like this?" -Marjorie Pay Hinckley.

which means
"Therefore, beautiful is the life that comes upon its own nature"

Mine would say...

Lelainia N. Lloyd said...

I would engrave this wonderful bracelet with the last line of our wedding vows, my most favourite part, which is this:

"I promise to love you, in good times & bad, with all I have to give, in the only way I know how-completely & forever."

We celebrate 20 years of a beautiful marriage in October and this would be a fitting reminder of the vows we made (and KEPT!) to one another.

Holly said...

I would pick 2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

I'd prolly have to condense it though!

Valerie said...

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
Audrey Hepburn

THAT is what I would put on my bracelet!

mrs. potato head said...

Mom2Da'Gorgeouses said...

What a wonderful idea! If it would fit, I would choose this quote:

Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is. – M.A. Radmacher

Thank you!

Trish said...

I think I'd choose the names of my children...
Or perhaps a scripture...

Kristi said...

Nothing original from me, just what is on your layered circle of love necklace, "My hands are almost as full as my heart"

scarthur said...

I would probably put "Test me in this and see if I will not pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it." Malachi 3:10 - I need this as a daily reminder right now. Thanks for the chance!

angela said...

I would chooses Proverbs 16:24...Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
It's a verse I often use to remind myself and my children to think before we speak..and to speak kindly.

abbeyviolet said...

I think I would put "Know that you are loved." Followed by the names of my husband and kids.

That said, the "just breathe" option is a very good one.

Rachel said...

Lovely! I'd love to wear this bracelet engraved with some lyrics from my husband's and my first dance song ("How Can I Tell You" by Cat Stevens).
