1200 Fan Giveaway

I would like to thank you all for your support!  It really means the world to me that you are passing the word on and returning.  I love hearing from you all.  :)  1200 fans is a huge achievment for me.  I really can't express it to you. 

I have this amazing friend, Karen, who inspires me everyday.  She did this type of a giveaway earlier this year and I loved it so much!  I got her permission to do it myself.  Thank you Karen!!!

You will need a partner for this special giveaway.  Each of you will need to visit this blog and leave a comment in order for your team to be entered.  Once the comment period is closed, I will choose a winner.  If your comment is the winner, both you AND your partner will win a "Nia"!!! 

So pick your partner and get your comments in!!! Remember you only qualify once BOTH partners have commented.  I will leave this giveaway open until Sunday, May 29th at 3 PM (AZ time).  So leave a comment with the name of your partner and why you chose them.  :)

GOOD LUCK to all the teams and have fun getting to know your partners!!

What is a "Nia"?
It is my own design that I created one day when I wanted to make my kids a stuffed toy.
I made them these.  I did not have a name for them at first.
When our nephew drowned and was hospitalized I made him one in hopes he would get better.
Sadly, he did not and I ended up laying his to rest with him forever.
When I came home I decided that they need to be named in his memory.
I chose Nia (pronounced NEE-ah) because it is Nephew in Irish Gaelic (I am part Irish).
It is easy to remember and fun to say. :)

My kids help me make these and they love each one that is made. We get a chance to remember the sweet boy we lost, Richie.
