I am participating in ONE WORLD ONE HEART blog carnival by a whimsicalBohemian.  A carnival for bloggers to get to know each other a little better and maybe make some new bloggy friends! 

Hi, I’m Tina. I am a newly wed and work full time as an emergency dispatcher and sometimes jewelry designer. I have a teenage stepdaughter who is 14 going on 25, if you know what I mean! ;) My husband and I have 4 fur babies between us, 3 dogs (Cisco, Zoe, and Pepper) and one bossy cat (Luther). Between taking care of everybody and working full time that doesn’t leave much time for my craft but I try to make time when I can.

I love to make fun jewelry that works for all occasions. I really enjoy mixing new and vintage for a great one of a kind piece.  I am in love with necklaces and pendants and that’s what I have the most of.

Here's my handmade necklace I'd like to giveaway.

I used vintage components to make this modern style necklace.

Necklace measures 18 inches.

  • For your entry leave a comment. 
This is an international giveaway so everyone's welcome.

Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you don't have a google profile.

I will draw the lucky winner on Valentine’s Day Feb 15th at 10pm CST.


Good luck and happy blogging!
