Wednesday Giveaway : Superhero

Superhero

Today I want to celebrate a wonderful blogger, jewelry artist, mother, and life coach who has become a friend: Andrea Scher of Superhero Designs. [ photo below by Boho Girl Denise Andrade ]

Andrea is the reason I began blogging back in 2004. I was working on a project for a workshop about designing with color (& color inspiration) and was searching the internet using the search terms "colorful jewelry." I stumbled onto Andrea's Superhero site (and of course I had to order a handmade necklace as part of my research), started reading her blog and checking out all her inspiring links, and decided then and there that what she was doing was cool and I wanted to start my own blog.

I finally got to meet Andrea in person last summer after corresponding back and forth from time to time over the past four years. It was awesome. She has a heart of gold, a wonderful written voice, and a gift for helping people get in touch with their own inner superhero.

Today, lucky readers, Andrea is giving away a one of her fantastic, colorful bead necklaces. In addition, she has a special holiday sale happening now that includes $20 off necklaces bead necklaces. Passion would make a great gift for a special friend (or a suggestion for a spouse who may need a little help in choosing a Valentine gift).

Here's a little FAQ on her lovely necklaces. She has also added these very cool silver pendant necklaces to her offerings.

To be entered into the drawing today leave a comment that highlights your own personal superpower (or superpowers). And before you think you have none, stop and consider the possibility
for a moment. What is something you are just awesome at? Take a
minute to be proud of something about ourselves and share it publicly.
I bet you are your very own superhero in some very special way.

Comments will be closed at 8pm Pacific tonight with the winner posted shortly after.

    Well today I am most definately a Superhero/Supermum. Its 44 degrees, thats 111 for you American ladies. I have been at a crowded, stinky, windy pool playing non stop with my 3 gorgeous kids for 4 hours. Seriously though I think I am pretty amazing at times. I run a Baby and Childrens Market to raise money for the Multiple Birth Association (GAMBA), I am a Chefs Toolbox Consultant, a waitress and fundraiser for GAMBA. I have 3 kids in Kinder this year so a tight schedule. I still manage to scrap, make softies, clothes for the kids and cook up a storm each and every night for my family. Three cheers to me.
    P.S I am getting a root canal tomorrow and plan to be a superhero right through the procedure ( I hope)

    I love that photo of Andrea, the colours are great, she looks like she is beaming colour. I like to think that my superpower is decorating, I love surrounding myself with beautiful things that enrich our family life. Of course we are all super hero mum's, but I wanted my superpower to be something just about me!

    It makes a nice positive change to force myself to think of what superpower I have.
    I think my superpower is courage. Courage to fight the anxiety problems that held back my life for so long. With my new found superpower I am enrolling in a Library Science course tommorow. After being agoraphobic for years, that's a big step for me!
    Cheers to everyone and their superpowers - rock on! :)

    I would have to say that my superpower is keeping a smile on my face no matter what is thrown my way. The ability to laugh even at one's self is powerful.
