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.

    I happen to think I have a pretty amazing talent for juggling our daily schedules. Between a husband who works long hours and is working on his Masters, two busy kids and myself, it's a fairly super feat to keep it all straight!

    my superpower would be being able to get up at 5 a.m. to exercise everyday. This is an amazing power since I looooove my sleep. Though this superpower comes with one drawback, I usually end up falling asleep on the couch at 9 in the evening.

    I think that my superpower is that I like to help people with things. When my friends need a favor, they know they can count on me!

    My superpower is creating. I created a beautiful little girl and together we concoct recipes of mudcakes, dream up adventures of pirates and abandoned islands, design pictures, build lego castles and make stories come alive.

    Super Housewife has to be it. Not that I'm "super" at it, but having the ability to juggle kids, house, hubby, and then the rest of life has to qualify!

    Ooooh. My superpower of the moment is juggling many balls in air all at once. Knowing who needs fed, who needs changed, the time of the last poop, the time of dinner, the time of naps and how long they are...I guess my superpower is really being the Master of the Schedule. And I like it.

    The necklace is beautiful. I would say my superpower is cooking & showing people love with serving them. I love to cook & bake. (& I am really good at it:) I have a neighbor that is 73 yrs. old & when I cook, I always take her a plate and put it in her mailbox along with a magazine that I have read. When she gets home, she goes to her mailbox and there is her supper waiting for her. I love knowing that it makes her happy but it brings me more pleasure than it does her.

    My superpower is connecting to my students. I am the teacher that knows what is going on in their lives. They often come to visit me when they are in middle school to update me in some family event that has taken place. I hope this makes me a better teacher!

    My superpower is that I am a problem-solver for friends, family, co-workers and even the little old lady at the supermarket who can't reach the high shelves.

    I'm able to find things that have been lost by various people in our family. :) I was gone for a couple of days and found the remote to the television within 2 minutes. :D

    I too love Andrea's jewelry! What a wonderful giveaway. I have a few superpowers. The first is being a mama. A stay-home-mama with a relatively clean house! The second is being able to organize myself and materials and work on several projects at one time without being completely overwhelmed. This has taken a lot of practice!

    my super strength is adaptability, married to an air force man we move every two years and I have to pick up my life and start all over again. We are due a move this July and I am going to find it so hard to leave our village where I have made some really super friends, the kids are settled to. But we stick together as a family and move on with the next chapter of our lives. Super adaptability even if I don't like it sometimes and it makes me sad!

    I'm a superhero at making eggs. Yes, eggs! I do not like to cook that much & my husband is the chef in our family. However, I make the eggs...really good ones! :)

    Sometimes I feel like a superhero by the end of the day because I have done soooo much..up by 5am...2 kids off to school..work for 8 hrs (I'm a home health nurse), home to cook dinner, pick up from wrestling practice (ok my hubby usually does that one), clean house, do laundry...you know all the normal stuff...work out..then finally to bed around 11. Long day!

    My super power is remembering phone numbers. I can remember almost everyone's phone number that I have called regularly in the last 20 years. One night at a church talent show, I played the piano while people in the audience said their names - I responded with their phone numbers. I also have my credit card number memorized but I think that's not a very good thing when shopping on-line.

    Love this jewelry! As for my superpower??? Sometimes I think I lost them all when I left my job as a high school math teacher. Now, though, I know I'm reveling in them daily as a stay-at-home mommy to my beautiful 23-month-old triplet girls!!! So, my superpower today is staying sane! Smiles to you!

    My superpower is bringing structure into ... well, just about anything. Whether it is into daily routines, into messy administration, into the contents of cupboards, into the confused minds or into the garden borders.. leave things with me and they'll all be turned into a structured, organized whole. I love it, it simplifies life and gives you more time to enjoy what matters instead of being distracted by mess and chaos.

    I am the super hero of organization. For some odd reason I get a thrill out of organzing things & I'm good at it too. Maybe it was a skill born out of necessity because chaos makes me a little crazy.

    Oh my, it's really hard for me to figure out and admit something that I do well (especially something that needs to qualify as SUPERHERO)! Well, I think that I am patient, so patient and easy going (get it from my Dad) that it allows my children to explore and grow into people that they will be happy with instead of trying to form them into the people that I want them to be.
    Of course I do loose it now and again, as all parents do, and I am a bit strict about my children being respectful of others, but I definitely know when to let them just be kids and become the people they want to be.
    There...wheeeewwww!!

    ps. Absolutely gorgeous jewelry, I LOVE beaded work!!

    My superpower - wow - I had to think really hard about this one. I am very organized (maybe not so much at home, but very organized at work) and a good multi-tasker. I also make really good chocolate chip cookies and brownies.
    Love Andrea's blog too - she is a superhero!!
