Cookie Lee gift certificate giveaway!

this giveaway is now over. thank you for participating & congrats to the winner!

Disclaimer: Since I had big plans for a blog review/ giveaway event that ended up being not so big, I thought I'd throw in my own giveaway to spice it up a bit.  And to calm any fears, I do have a 13 month old who pulls on this jewelry constantly & has never broken a single item, so it's pretty durable! 

I am an independent consultant for Cookie Lee jewelry, which basically means I own my own business through Cookie Lee.  Cookie Lee is a direct sales company & one of the most fabulous I've ever heard of.  You can operate exactly how you want, as much or as little.  You can become a consultant for no reason but the discount on your own jewelry or you can become a consultant because you want to take over the world- no joke! I have a great friend, KC, who has won multiple trips (going to Punta Cana this summer), she has been promoted numerous times & she's all around a fabulous Cookie & fabulous business woman (plus, in all her free time, she runs a horse farm! Crazy, right?).  So, while I don't think I'll ever top KC, my personal goal is strive to be a little closer to her end of the Cookie spectrum, which is easy to do with jewelry at this awesome price point & quality level!

Something I love to highlight about Cookie Lee is how much we support fundraising/charity work.  As some of you may know, I just did a "Help for Haiti" fundraiser & sold jewelry to send money to the Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund.  It went over very well & I'll be donating the money at the end of this month (I still have one more purchase to get out to a customer).  I can help with any fundraiser out there- wouldn't you rather purchase jewelry to wear or give, instead of microwave popcorn or another overpriced candy bar?  I would... my health would prefer that I buy jewelry over the other options as well! 

Anyway, enough about that.  Let's get on to the really good stuff, right?  The BLING!  Here's the link: Cookie Lee Catalog! And here's some photos:

I apologize that the pictures do not do the pieces justice, but photographing bling is not always an easy task.  

One last photo & a little piece feature: I just took this of the highly coveted (in my circle anyway) Capri Isle necklace! This necklace is 64" long & can be worn several ways, some of which are shown in the catalog (21A). The beads are gorgeous- some painted.  It has a matching set of (3) bracelets & matching earrings. 

So, after checking out the link, do you like what you see? And you want to have something or somethingS from the catalog?
