RAW::Everything You Give

Today's Random Act of Wisdom is brought to you by Notes from the Universe. Click to sign up and get yours.

"Everything you give, Erin, you get back, times seven.

Plus, what you give, grows, times seven.

Plus plus, there's a little known intergalactic algorithm that states whenever love is added to the giving, a line of unique wearable work-of-art jewelry draws ever closer to the giver. Whoa!

I give it all to you,
The Universe"

Isn't that a nice thought?

I get these TUT messages...Totally Unique Thoughts®...just by happenstance. They don't come every day, but sometimes, like this week, they come more frequently. And I wonder...can they really know that I needed to hear this right here, right now? This is a recent one. I store them in a folder and come back to them for encouragement.

In the spirit of giving, and paying it forward, I recently gifted Lorelei with a bundle of goodies from the Bead & Button show. She did issue a challenge on her ABS post about buying her something. Seems that others were listening to her as well. Go check out her post about it and stick around for her re-org of her studio. Imagine if she gets more organized how much more creatively prolific she will be! There will be no stopping her! What do I get out of this deal? Well, I like to share with my friends and Lorelei has been a great mentor to me. And there is nothing better than the satisfaction that she likes what I selected for her. I can't wait to see what she makes with that owl from Lisa Peters Art! {And Lorelei is giving away some sweet Kelley Wenzel eggs and a Summers Studio birdie. Tweet!}

And another good friend Denise Yazbak Moore has announced the mother of all giveaways. She has cleaned out her stash and tells me that this 7.5 pounds of beady goodness is but the tip of the iceberg to her dragon's horde. She is giving this away to one lucky commenter. PICK ME! PICK ME! But hurry! The sign up ends soon! Denise makes the most amazing jewelry and has wonderful color sense as well, so I am certain that these beauties are all top notch. I can't wait to see who the winner will be and what will be done with this bounty!

Just found out about another giveaway...Glasstastic Treasures has a sweet lampworked tree keychain to gift to a lucky person. Go to the post here for details.

As for me...don't forget that I am still taking comments on my Bead Soup post to win a pair of earrings {not as faboo as 7.5 pounds of awesomeness, but it is something!}.

And there is still time to get your entry in for the June Inspired by...Paper Crafting challenge.

And if you come back on Saturday, June 26th I am participating in the Mad Tea Party Blog Hop with a few hundred other creative bloggers from around the world. {I'll let you in on a secret...there will be a really awesome piece of jewelry up for grabs in my giveaway among other things!}

Last, but not least, the winner of the Summer Solstice giveaway from yesterday is.......

What a nice batch of beads you sent Lorelei! I can't wait to see what she makes with them, too :)

Thanks for the nod on my eggs she is giving away along with one of LeAnn's birdies. Lotsa good giveaways going on this week!

Hi Erin, I am a lurker and love to read your posts, but had to respond to your TUT post. I also get the messages and have often wondered if we all get the same message... Today mine was...

"Deb, not even I know how a dream will come true, until it does.

But if you just keep showing up, they always do.
The Universe

I just spent a wonderful two weeks with my dad who came from Myrtle Beach, SC for my sons graduation. He left this morning and I already miss him... I needed that big love hug today...

Silver Parrot said...

Oooh...I love what you put together for Lorelei...although I am slightly frightened by the thought of her becoming even MORE prolific. She may take over the universe soon LOL! Check my blog this afternoon for a post about what you sent to me!

Pretty Things said...
