Stella & Dot Trunk Show and Giveaway

The greatest treasures that I have collected in our moves around the eastern half of this country are friendships.  Today I want to introduce you to my great friend, Sharon Williams.  We met in CT shortly after moving there.  We visited a small church one Sunday morning.  Sharon and her husband Todd invited us to lunch with them after the service.  That was the very beginning of a relationship that grew to depths I would have never imagined.


Sharon was my “partner in crime” for many trips into Manhattan.  By “crime” I mean shopping and eating – mainly cupcakes and chocolate!  Lots of cupcakes and chocolate!  So much fun together! 
They came to visit us in Chicago on my birthday – yes, Virginia, there was Chocolate!! (Fannie Mae’s) and Cupcakes! (Sprinkle’s)  We take our treats seriously.


Since our separation she has stepped out of her comfort zone in ways I would have never guessed.  She is a card carrying member of the DAR, lives on Roosevelt Island – literally, Main St. NYC – takes acting classes and works as an extra, and has become an entrepreneur!  She is also one of the kindest and most generous people you will ever meet.  Her love for the Lord is absolutely infectious!  In fact, she was the one who challenged me to read straight through the Bible for the first time.  The challenge wasn’t verbal; it was from witnessing her life and how many times she had done it.  People, you want this girl in your corner!

As an added bonus for you, my dear readers, I am having an online trunk show for Stella & Dot hosted by my friend Sharon. I am also having a GIVEAWAY OF A FABULOUS PIECE OF STELLA & DOT JEWELRY!!  I’m excited that this is my very first giveaway and Sharon is part of that.  Read a little more here:

I will be celebrating my first year as an entrepreneur with Stella & Dot and I'll be truly celebrating what a wonderful company I work for and the fun job I have!

October is a special month for Stella & Dot because we have partnered with the Noreen Fraser Foundation in supporting research for women's cancers. Last year's net proceeds for the sales of the Tribute bracelet brought in $120,000 for breast cancer research! This year there are 5 items for sale for which the net proceeds go to the Noreen Fraser Foundation.

The Stella & Dot Foundation is a permanent initiative that supports 3 charities for women and children. This fall Stella & Dot has premiered its new Foundation bracelets! They are so pretty and cute!

The new holiday collection has finally arrived! The Courage, Light and Love bracelets are so adorable and only $19! These would make great gifts for teachers, friends, dog walkers, anyone! There is truly something lovely for every budget.

Now for the exciting part:  I will be giving away a Light bracelet to one lucky reader.  All you have to do is leave a comment about which piece of fabulousness from the show catches your eye.  No need to purchase anything to be eligible.  The deadline for entry and ordering is October 30, 2012.

**Need new bling for Allume?  Their standard flat rate shipping will have your goodies to you in about a week.**

Go, look, shop (if you want) then come back here and tell me what you liked in the comments.

  2. Seriously pick one thing? Impossible! I did not know they had scarves. I am a huge fan of just about everything. I can't look too much because a necklace for 268 is more than I want to spend...but I can think of how amazing it would look. :). They just have such fun colors and designs. Their stuff is so adorable.

  3. I LOVE those Secret Garden earrings. But I would be honored to wear the Courage bracelet. Breast cancer is more about courage than hope.

  5. Just one thing???!! Really?? That's impossible. If I had to prioritize, it would probably be the Deco Drop Earrings, just b/c I'm in an earring shopping mood. But the necklaces are awesome, and I'd be proud to wear ANY of their pieces!!

  7. How do you pick just one thing? There are so many great pieces! I fell in love with several of the bib necklaces and don't even get me started on the bracelets. But if I have to pick one, I would choose the Deco Drop Earrings. They are beautiful and classic. You could pair them with just about anything. I could see them with a little black dress and slammin heels for a night on the town or with jeans and a sweater for staying in and hanging out with friends or your sweetie.

  8. Amy, I must admit I'm partial to bracelets. I especially like the leather wrap ones. Didn't pick just one, because I like all of them! Nancy

  11. Charms, charms, charms! Or maybe it's a book thing, because I'm totally drawn to the Wonderland and Secret Garden necklaces and bracelets!

  14. The Laurel ring... that's my mom's name. And I could use a ring to cover the thin white line that breaks my heart a little less today than yesterday....

  15. One thing...hmm I love braclets. How about the Prosper Braclet. Mainly because that is my one goal in life- to prosper. Well maybe not. But I do love the braclet.
