featured design for april & giveaway

since last month's design was such a hit, i decided to stay in the same vein...


tiny squares.

Two hammered squares (About 1/2" each) are hung from a thick, sterling ring and strung on 18" sterling chain. A cream freshwater pearl adds the perfect detail. Each square can fit up to 6 characters. Oh, it's so perfect!!

$46.00, additional charms $14.00

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

So...I am giving one away. Leave us a comment and tell us something fun scheduled for April.

Our fun thing planned for April is probably not what most would consider fun but it is great fun for my husband, our children and me. We live in Southwestern Colorado on our farm. We have waited all winter for it to be warm and dry enough to plant our wheat and new alfalfa in some of our fields. We should be able to get on tractors and get started this week and we are so excited we almost can't stand it!

Thanks! :) katebethATgmail

The boys in the family are looking forward to an X-treme Moto-X show and the whole family will roll up their sleeves and enjoy some family fun (and work) slough pumping in april around the farm. haha

melinda said...

Oh so sweet. We plan to get out in the yard together and get the flower beds ready for planting and mulching etc. Also planning some one on one time with each of the kids- special afternoons to do what they want. Maybe a movie, lunch, or an afternoon at the park.

I recently found your site and Love your jewelry. I adore that leather cuff....maybe I missed it, but do you have more like that. I would totally love to buy one for my teenage daughter who is having a tough time right now. I thought it would be perfect for her to see throughout the day and look at some sort of reaffirming word on a cool bracelet. OR would you be willing to make a custom one? A fun thing...hmmm...well my roses are in bloom!!!! Thats pretty fun. :)

Christine said...

I love your jewelry, and I love your blog! I read it daily! It is so warm and encouraging. I can't wait until your new website is up and running!

My fun April activity...potty training my twin girls who will be three in April. I know, I know...we're a little behind on this whole potty-training thing! We started today, so hopefully we will be finished by the end of April!!! The actual process will not be fun, but the moment I lay my head down at night and realize we didn't have a single accident all day will be pure bliss!

My friend and I have daughters the same age and last year we started a new tradition called "SPRING FLING"....we take our daughters shopping ALL day, get photos taken in the mall's photo booth, buy goofy stuff we'll never use again (like funky glasses and such), spend the day laughing, talking, taking the girls out for a really nice 'grownup' lunch and have precious times with our daughters!! This year our SPRING FLING is scheduled for April 26th and we can't wait!! This year we are gonna stay overnight in a hotel and give the girls facials and manicures!! WOOOHOO!! I can't wait!! I never know who is more excited...us or the girls!!! peace and blessings....Cindy B.

mom43 said...

My fun thing planned for April would be my oldest daughter Samantha's first prom. We have already had lots of fun picking out the dress, jewelry, and shoes. Since I am a hair dresser I am in charge of the hair. We will make a day out of it. Her two best friends are also coming over. I will be doing the hair and nails for all three. This will be a great memorie for us. I am so excited to be sharing in this special day with all the girls.

Jan said...

April fun? Well, I am heavily involved with a church children's talent show -- can't wait to see the fun things those little guys end up showing us as their talents. With a hot dog lunch and a kids' talent show, it's a fun Saturday for sure .

Shawna said...

Adorable new design Lisa! I get so many compliments on the necklace you made for me, I've given out your blog addy to so many people! My Mom just ordered herself one finally!

One thing we are excited about in this house is KU making it into the Final Four! So the first weekend in April means we will be watching the games & cheering our team on!!

grey like snuffie said...

Our college daughters who are coming home just for this night, a lonely friend, a high school senior and my husband and I are planning a game night, playing games but also watching our beloved Jayhawks in the Final Four. Being empty nesters now we look forward to "FUN" nights with kids around. It is a strange little group of people but we call each other "family". PARTAY!

Anjanette said...

We're headed to South Beach, Florida - just my husband and I. He earned a weekend recognition trip due to his incredibly hard work at his place of employment. We never go away alone, so this will be an amazing treat.

Alicia said...

This is a beautiful necklace. I wear my necklace that you made for me everyday! It says BELIEVE IN MIRACLES! Our son just finished his stem cell transplant and we've been home now for 3 weeks and loving every minute of it! He started radiation today and he will finish with that in a couple of weeks and then we plan to have so much fun at our house....just celebrating our children! We can't go anywhere because our son is on isolation, but we are planning a "small" birthday party for our soon to be 2 year old daughter. We're going to have just the grandparents here, but it is going to be a princess themed party and Ethan is going to be a "King" and Ava a "Princess". It is going to be so much fun watching the kids all dressed up and having a good time at the "PARTY"! Small or not, it will be great to celebrate!

Thanks for all of your posts, I check them daily. Your boys are adorable and your work is fabulous!

joan said...

My daughter starts 'Princess Ballet' classes and wants to wear a princess dress to her first class!

Dustin said...

I can't believe it but, I think I love the tiny squares even more than the teeny tiny initials! Our fun (depends on your perspective) plans for April are very simple. I can't wait to enjoy the emerging spring weather.... to plant and landscape, and to start walking more places instead of driving everywhere. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

Darcie said...

I'm a first time comment-er. I love your jewelry! My fun even planned for April is going to see Jenna and Laura Bush at a book signing that is promoting their new children's book. I'm so excited!

Laura and the family said...

The fun part is that I will put all of the pictures in a scrapbook for my mother in law, who has a breast cancer,just had a "Hat n' Snip Off" party last Sunday 3/30. Yet,I will start putting the pictures together at Creative workshop on 4/16 all day. After putting tons of pictures, I will hand the books to her at the end of April as a part of gift.

Tami said...

Yvette said...

We have four children under the age of four who are all at the cabin fever stage with our Ohio weather. To break out of the same old boring routine, we're having a theme week to kick off April. Five days of fun activities ... cooking one day, a movie day with popcorn and our favorite Disney movies, baseball day for the season's kick-off. With any luck we'll even have one day warm enough to get outside for some outdoor activities too. Just something different to keep our minds off the lack of warmth and sunshine we're still seeing here.

Rachel Slagle said...

i love the new necklace!!

This winter we have been snowed in, experienced blizzard after blizzard, our sons wedding and Easter celebrations cancelled due to snow and countless other malodies! So, in April I have a scavenger hunt scheduled for our family that will include looking for signs of spring - from buds to flowers to creepy-crawly-thingys and the winner will be crowned 'king or queen of spring'! Can't wait! This spring NEVER looked so good.

Christa said...

Something special for April...my God-Mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and just started going through chemo and she is beating it's consequences to the punch by having a head shaving party. It will get shorter by shorter throughout the night until its all shaved off. She will join her father and brother with having a bald head. I am blessed to be in her life and I will be attending the "head shaving party" to enjoy it with her.

Lovely jewelry you have...when she beats this all together I plan to get her one in rememberance of her journey.

Mommy to Girls said...

I have a Low-concert to go to, and I adore this band! I can't wait :)

Krista said...

My grandmother is turning 87 and my husband and I are taking her out. Special why? well 87 is amazing in itself, however; I just met her last year. My father was MIA my whole life and my Mothers parents are both deceased as well ad my husbands grandparents. So, I decided one day that I wanted a grandmother. I found her on the internet called her and she was so excited. Her daughter (my Aunt!) lives with her to and we have developed a wonderful relationship.

So April 6th we are going to church and brunch to celebrate!

Andrea said...

Our family has a fantastic camping trip planned for the second weekend in April! We live in Texas, and we tent camp, so October and April are the best months for nice weather for that, not too cold at night or too hot during the day. Over the years our camping trips have given our family some of the most happy, relaxed times. We build great memories. I can't wait! ~Cathy S., Fort Worth, TX

April is so fun... First, April Fool's Day with little bitty people cackling is such a hoot! Then, in our TN mountains, the season change is pretty drastic - lifting up rocks with my little Cade and Chloe (their names would look so sweet on your beautiful little squares...)to discover all those "little things" they love that show up in April, like shiny little beetles, salamanders, ant homes, etc...) We are also excited to celebrate Cade's sixth birthday with an "underwater" theme (his very creative idea). I love reading your sweet blog, and feel like I know you...we both have special education/behavior intervention backgrounds and curly hair (and love creative jewelry!)and we both have two beautiful little ones that we truly appreciate!!

Since April is my birthday month, I consider the whole month fun! It means I get to plant some beautiful new flowers in my garden, take in some beautiful California sunshine, and for my birthday weekend, either a jazz concert with the hubby or to Palm Springs for massages with my Mom and two sisters. Ahhh... such choices!

Erin said...

We have lots of fun scheduled for April!! First and foremost, having a baby! My second child is due April 19th and we are so excited. It is also my husband's birthday and the whole family (except the baby :) ) is in a wedding on the 26th! Its sure to be an exciting and eventful month!

Leah said...

I love this necklace! The fun thing for April is that I'm having a baby! Well hopefullly, unless he decides to come really late! :)

Bekka said...

Absolutely gorgeous! Hmmm...April isn't overly-scheduled yet, but I'm going out for Chinese food with friends next weekend!

April said...

Well I am from a small historic town in Indiana. THe fun thing that I am going to do this year is a thing called the "daffodil stroll" it is April 5th-6th. You just go to our historic downtown and they have heavily planted daffodils and they all the little unique shops are opne late and local artists sell thier things. It is kind of a "spring kickoff". It is a lot of fun. It has been going on since i was a child. http://www.huntingburg.org
I am also going to graduate from Nursing school this month....yeah!

Raquel said...

I always look foward to her special day becuase it is ALL hers. Her older and wonderful brother has a life threatining illness and demands a tons of attention. She is so amazing with him and giving of herslef. So, I am very much looking foward to April 26th when we have a very fun carnival in our backyard just for her!!!

I would actually love to win this for my best girlfriend who has been through a horrible divorce this year and it will be final on April 11. She has been such an amazing mom to her two little ones (ages 2 and 3 1/2) through it all and she would just melt over this!
Thanks for the consideration! While it is not really a "fun" thing, it is a blessing to have it over!

I'm looking forward to an April trip with my middle daughter (age 19). We're going to NY to see RENT. She's a dance major and wants to see RENT before it leaves Broadway. I love your jewelry pieces. Angie Ulseth

DawnMarie said...

What a great give away. My fun event for April will be taking car eof my two nephews so my sister and her husband can go away alone for the first time in 5 years.

Matter of fact, that is who this necklace would go to. My sister has two wonderful boys. She is such a great Mom and deserves something from the boys to say thanks.

Love your jewelry. The exciting event we are looking forward to this April is camping in our new camper. Well, new to us, not so new really. If you are a Christmas Vacation fan, it sorta reminds you of Cousin Eddie's R.V. 'now don't you go falling in love with it' :-)

Peggy said...

April fun will be my first birthday as a Grandma! It will be my 50th birthday, but first one celebrated with a grandbaby! Also will be celebrated with my oldest son home, he's a green beret, member of the 3rd Special FOrces group, and the rest of my family, truly FUN at its best, with those I love most! Includes a weimaraner and black lab in the family too!

I am giving a baby shower for my daughter-in-law who is expecting our grandson June 1st :*) CAN'T WAIT ~!!!!!

Jill Duarte said...

Love the necklace...but that is no surprise. April will be a blast for me. The first weekend I'm off to our women's retreat. My hubby surprised me with it as a gift. Then the third weekend I'm off on road-trip to Phoenix, AZ with some of the most fun ladies I know. We are all business partners and we are heading there for a conference. Two "all-girls" weekends in one month just can't be beat. Top that off with a very special day at the end of the month (my step-sister's wedding reception). We haven't seen each other in years and I'm really looking forward to reconnecting with her. I have 4 kiddos so basically everyday is a fun day, but April will be particularly FUN and exciting!

I am going to win a Lisa Leonard give-away this month...

How sweet this necklace is! Something fun planned for April...how about 3 birthdays!?!

Anne said...

I have been following your blog for several months and love reading your posts. The snows are melting, there are baby animals at nearby Drumlin Farm, so we plan to wear our rain boots and go squish, squish, squish through the mud around the farm. For my kids (ages 6, 4 and 4) those farm puddles are even more fun than visiting the animals. We are looking forward to grandma’s visit during school vacation week, and have plans to make many fairy houses in our back yard.

lindsey cheney said...

ok, could you stop with all the cute new ideas?! i have only been deciding which i want for, oh, a year now, and this is not very helpful! something fun for april.... camping trip/sean's mtn. bike race! lov you!

Jodi said...

Well, let's hope the rest of April is more fun than the beginning, and not following the lead of April 1st, not just known as April Fool's Day, but also the day I have my first root canal! No joke!

I'm looking forward to warmer weather, and my parents and little brother coming to visit toward the end of the month. There's nothing like being with family.

Michelle said...

The fun thing I will be doing in April is attend my cousin's wedding. The whole family will be there, it's in a beautiful location at a really good restaurant. Can't wait!

We are hoping to melt the last of the 96+ inches of snow we've had this winter and get our home ready to sell. Our kids are begging to out to walk and ride their bikes. We will relish the site of daffodils and tulips!

Teri said...

Fun in April ~ helping plan a surprise 80th birthday party for my dad the first weekend in May. Love your blog, Lisa.

Jen said...

I love this jewelry so much! There is just something sweet about wearing the names of my kids close to my heart! Our fun project for April is creating a canvas for our playroom. We just moved for the fourth time in three years in December and we are getting down to finishing each room.

cnote_71 said...

My husband and I are going away this weekend to the Kane County Flea Market in St. Charles IL. If I don't win the necklace, I'm ordering one. My step-daughter will love it.

Jac said...

F-U-N => Family Up North
Hubby & I are gonna bring our 'boys' (a 7 month old hamster & a 5 weeks old guinea pig) on a road trip up north from where we are staying. :) It's gonna be a family bonding time heh heh because the guinea pig just joined the us less then a week ago. it's gonna be hilarious having them around. Their hay/snacks/pellets/etc alone will take up the whole boot space ha ha We are seriously looking forward to that :) You have a great April too! =)

Kate said...

That necklace is pure sweetness as always, Lisa! Yay, I LOVE LOVE your giveaways!
Ok, my fun event would be walking in the March of Dimes walk with my sis/best friend for my (premie) nephews!! Plus, family photos taken at Picture People...if that doesn't spell F-U-N then I don't know what does!!! ;) :D Have a great day, Lisa!!

My grandfather's 85th birthday, my son's 7th birthday, and my 39th birthday are within 3 days of each other so we are celebrating with a huge blowout by our pond. There will be bar-b-que, cake, horseshoes, sand volleyball, and much celebrating with friends and family. I can't wait!

I am having my first daughter, Grace. That is scheduled too! April 7th will be a good day!

Nancy said...

My friend Heather directed me to your site... what great jewelry! I used to make some myself, but I haven't done it in awhile... You inspire me to get started again!

April is going to be a fun month for my family. The 16th is our 4th wedding anniversary, and later on in the month is my husband’s birthday. My husband was injured in Iraq a little over 2 years ago now and lost his right arm and left leg in an IED attack. Despite that we have managed to go to Ruth Chris for dinner every year (besides our first anniversary when he was overseas!) We are looking forward to this tradition again this year, but will have to hire a babysitter this time! We have a 10 month old daughter now- Whew! Life changes fast!

If I were to win your generous give away, I’ve got to be honest… I’d give it to my friend Heather. She’s been talking about your jewelry for awhile now, and every great Mom deserves something pretty to represent her family! I hope your April is just as fun as mine will be! Sorry for the long entry and congratulations on your successful business! Looks like you have lots of people admiring your work… :)

love it - so fun!

For April - my brother and his two boys are here and will be here into the beginning of April for a ski trip. This is the first time I have seen any of my family in 7 months - this is so nice!

The rest of April, I am looking forward to warmth, sunshine, and hanging out with my kids. Our calendar is fairly wide open and I am so excited to have a month with not much on the schedule :o)

Alice Wills Gold said...

kite flying!!! Oh the joy to just take in some simple kite flying with the kids..they all love it.

And, I would love a free necklace, or even one that I have paid for, I just think I could get a free one first :)

My fun for April... Visiting my sister in Florida to get away from all the snow in Utah and taking my three year old to Disney World for the first time. He is so excited!!!!

TONYA said...

gorgeous gorgeous, gorgeous. I love your jewellery.

Fun thing for April: Tomorrow is April Fools Day right, so let's start with a recipe I found to use pound cake, marshmallows and vanilla frosting dyed yellow to make 'eggs & toast' - the kids will love it. Then it's off to see The Wiggles in concert. Yeah.

We are getting the sidewalk chalk out. Yep - all 24 colors! It's a celebration since we haven't seen the sidewalks (covered in ice and snow) in months! Love your work.

yikes...193 comments. Heres one more. Next weekend the women in my family are going on our annual shopping trip. We spend a small fortune, giggle like little girls, and eat way too much. It is perfect and lovely.

This is darling, and I would love to have it around my neck!

April in Seattle - I'm hoping for blue skies and balmy winds, after a long, wet and cold winter.

And if that doesn't happen, we have family birthday celebrations planned that will be sure to chase the clouds away.

Karen said...

My husband was looking over my shoulder as I was on your website. He saw your design for April and commented that he likes it. Fun thing(s)for April? Vicariously, I will enjoy Disneyland when our 12 year old goes with our church's youth group. I can hardly wait to hear about it. This weekend, we, as a family, will be going to a foster family retreat. It should be refreshing as well as a great time of networking with other fost/adopt parents.

Zarna said...

I'm a Stampin' Up! Demo and here in Australia our catalogue runs April to March so today I've put in my first catalogue order and now I get all the fun of waiting and unwrapping the parcel when it arrives!
It doesn't sound like much to other people but to me it's like a Christmas everytime i get a new order in the mail!
So hurry up mailman and bring me Christmas in April!

Linda Z said...

My hubby is going to do a getaway with the guys and I'm hopefully going to get to do one with the girls.

Love the little charms! :)

Our fun event for me and my kids is in early May. We are traveling to Nebraska for my oldest nieces high school graduation. Yes they are out of school May 3rd! Will be fun to see lots of cousins we haven't seen in awhile! Love the new necklace and I can't wait to see your website! I'm still waiting for you in Mission Viejo!

Looking forward to April? Yes, indeedy, I am!
In 3 weeks my hubby and I finally get to meet our Little One {by ultrasound} for the first time, which is immensely exciting. We had been trying for a number of years to get pregnant and so this baby is especially meaningful and hoped for.

Gro said...

Oh - you are so sweet!

My fun thing for April isn't really for me. My parents are traveling to China, which is kind of a big event for the whole family. They are both hard working, so they really deserve this break. And me... I'm just happy being able to sit outside reading in the sun after the long winter:)

The Tulip Festival north of Seattle is our April outting. Beautiful petals, fields of color and appreciating the beauty all around.
