Hi!

I'd love to be entered. Because I have two daughters and couldn't just choose one, I would take the winning one for myself! :)

Thanks!

My husband ordered me a beautiful piece from your etsy shop and surprised me with it for Christmas. I adore it and have had tons of compliments! It is an awesome conversation starter when people notice my Africa pendant hanging around my neck. I have already blogged about your talent and will be posting to facebook. Thanks again, you are amazing!

Erica said...

You are amazing. I love this. I'd probably take it myself because I LOVE your work. BUT I may also save it and give it to our wee daughter waiting for us in Ethiopia. Either way. I love it. Also love you and your amazing work. You are such an incredible part of our adoption, we're thankful for you!

I have an Africa pendant that I purchased from you last summer, a few months before we brought our daughter home from Uganda. I love wearing it, and would love to be entered in this contest to win a piece for my little Ugandan princess, too! My email is mwilson518 at gmail. Thank you so much. LOVE your stuff!!! Also, I posted about your giveaway on our adoption blog (it's private, but if you email me I can send you the post via email-if you need to see it). And I posted to my Facebook as well. :)

Oh Tracy you are always giving so much!! I have been meaning to email you and ask you to do a piece for a wonderful lady in Ethiopia that cares for the children at the orphanage where our two kiddos are. Our daughter is very attached to her and I would love to be able to give her something to say thank you for taking such wonderful care of the children as they wait for their adopting families to come. Tracy, you have such a huge heart and your jewelry is always so beautiful and speaks to the heart!

Hi, Tracy! You made a custom piece for me last September. We are adopting a 2 year-old boy from Ethiopia. I LOVE the piece you made for me. I would love to win this, it's the same design as my t-shirt I designed for our adoption fundraiser! God bless you!

Nikki said...

I would love to win this necklace and I would share it with one of my best friends who recently brought her son home from Ethiopia. She had an Africa necklace (Expecting from Africa) and once she received her referral, she gave her necklace to me to wear until our Ethiopian blessing comes home. I'd love for her to have this piece!
I'm working on the perfect blog post to share all of the necklaces that my friends and I have of yours.
Thanks for the fun give away!

Jared and Allison Sherburne said...

I LOVE your jewelry!!! I would have to choose the necklace, because I too have two adopted daughters from Ethiopia. They just came home in Aug., and I feel SO blessed to have been chosen as their Mommy!!! Thank you for this give-away! I LOVE showing off my love for Africa!!! :-)!!

I would love the bracelet as I would take it to our African Cultural Camp and put it in our silent auction. The money raised in the auction goes towards the camp and also a portion goes to Haiti to a friend's orphange.
