Back-to-School Giveaway: Custom Circle of Sentiments Necklace

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 19, 2009 · 414 comments

Circle of Sentiments Initial Necklace

Tune in all week for hot Back-To-School Giveaways. We’ve got some great prizes for the kids, with a couple of special prizes to pamper mom!!! Look for a new 48-hour giveaway each morning and each afternoon, and be sure to check out all of the current giveaways for other great prizes!

There's no doubt that being a mom is a hard job – the hardest job there is! And while the rewards are absolutely worth it, I've teamed up with Jamie from Circle of Sentiments to offer you something a little more tangible this week!

Isn't this necklace that she created for me gorgeous? I opted to go with the first initials for all of my kids since some of the longer names wouldn't fit on the small size discs that I selected. I was a little skeptical of how the finished product would turn out with so many discs, but I absolutely LOVE it.

I'm so impressed with the quality and craftmanship, and when I wore my necklace to Blogher, and I received dozens of compliments on it while I was there. It's quickly become one of my favorite accessories, and I always wear it when I travel as a reminder of my kiddos.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a custom necklace with up to two discs from Jamie's Signature Collection, valued at $65!

To enter, simply leave a comment and tell me about your most rewarding moment as a mother.

Most rewarding moment as a mother when my son, who was about 3 years old at the time, got a splinter in his finger. I was able to get it out. The next morning when we were coming downstairs for breakfast and he was holding onto the stair railing he must have remembered the splinter and he looked up at me and said "THANK YOU MOMMY!" Too sweet!

There are so many memorable moments for me but one that stands out is when my son was 3 we were standing in the back yard and he said to me...."Mom your my most beautifulllllllllly woman."

36 Jen August 20, 2009 at 5:21 pm

My most rewarding moment is one that happens often. It's when one of my kids hugs me and tells me how much they love me. There's nothing better than that! :)

One of the most rewarding moments as a mother is when my little girl Hailey came home from the NICU 5 weeks after her birth. This is one of many many rewarding moments.

41 Huguette E. August 20, 2009 at 7:32 pm

The most rewarding moment .. that's really a hard one as they do something everyday that makes being a mom rewarding! I would have to say when they make the right choices.
