In honor of Simple Living Media’s launch yesterday, we want to celebrate this week with a celebration of you, our readers. And what better way to celebrate you than with a slew of giveaways!
Head over to Simple Bites, Simple Homeschool, Simple Kids, and Simple Organic to enter the rest of the fabulous giveaways. Each site will have one winner for each of its prizes, so you definitely don’t want to miss this!
Without further adieu, here are the fabulous prizes waiting for ONE Simple Mom reader to win:
1. One Pearl
The idea behind One Pearl came to founder Theresa Wing Hines one day during a very difficult time in her life. As she was dealing with the pain of sending one of her sons to a wilderness therapy camp and therapeutic boarding school because of a wide variety of issues with him, she realized how few families have the resources to tap in to solutions for their troubled children. She wanted to help.
Theresa loved creating beautiful jewelry, and she loved the idea of supporting charities she’s passionate about from her business proceeds. One Pearl was born, its name descriptive of every piece she designs — every item in One Pearl’s store has one standalone pearl that symbolizes a nurtured object placed in a foreign environment. Just like her son. Her hope is that when someone asks why your necklace or bracelet has one different pearl, you can explain that it symbolizes one child’s life changed from the purchase of the jewelry.
To date, more than 50 percent of all one One Pearl’s profits have gone straight to charities. Watch the video below for more information:
Theresa sent me a 70″ silver baroque pearl strand, and wants to give an identical strand to a lucky Simple Mom reader!
I love this strand because it can be worn an endless amount of ways. I can double it up for a classic-looking pearl necklace. I can wrap it around my wrist for a chunky bracelet look. I can knot and loop the strand for funkifying a classic t-shirt. I can even wrap it around my waist as a belt!
This is a piece of jewelry made to be a family heirloom, and I love that it’s a beautiful hybrid of classic and original. It’s a pearl necklace, but its artisan quality means the pearls are asymmetrical, and of course, it has one original black pearl. And like all of One Pearl’s products, it comes in a gorgeous silk jewelry pouch, made by a Cambodian foundation that trains women in the ancient Cambodian tradition of silk weaving, giving these women a tangible skill.
The winner will receive one 70″ silver baroque pearl strand.
2. Ali Edwards
An advocate for not making things more complicated than they need to be and embracing imperfection, Ali Edwards shares cool concepts, design, and project ideas in her idea books and on her website. As a longtime sponsor of Simple Mom, I’m thrilled to share with you Ali‘s artistic talent!
Well known for her signature style of everyday-life scrapbooking, Ali is a highly sought-after workshop instructor. She travels the worldwide, conducting classes and inspiring students to tell their stories fearlessly.
Today, Ali wants to give away a package of 365 photo overlays, one for each day of the year. These overlays can be added to your photos in Photoshop Elements or other photo-editing software before printing. In addition, these files can be printed out and used as journaling cards, to keep track of the stories of your days.
And that’s what I love about this package. You can use them in your scrapbooking, of course, but they can also be used individually in your photos and in other forms of crafting. You’re only limited by your ideas! I’m going to create a collage of our Thanksgiving trip to Paris, using our photos like the sample I just whipped up below.
Head to Ali’s blog to see some of Ali’s tips and ideas for these particular photo overlays.
The winner will receive a package of 365 photo overlays, valued at $29.95.
3. Seeing the Everyday magazine
Seeing the Everyday is the “small things magazine.” Devoted to simple living, they’ve found inspiration from parents who have realized that each day is filled with what might only appear to be ordinary, inconsequential events. These events, really, are what shape our lives. Their hope is that with their magazine, you’ll find poetry in the prosaic.
This is a delightfully simple magazine. Nary an advertisement found, this publication is chock full of encouragement to savor the little things in life, like building a tree house with your kids, appreciating your own memories as a child, and learning about historical figures who’ve changed the world for the better. Plus, the magazine is gorgeously crafted with photos and well-written content.
I love this magazine. It inspires me on my journal towards a simpler life. It’s the epitome of what the blog’s mission is all about. I’m so excited to see this publication in the mail.
The winner will receive one annual subscription to Seeing the Everyday magazine, valued at $20. And because Seeing the Everyday is so generous, they’d like to throw in a second subscription to an additional Simple Mom reader!
