Let’s bring on some bling, shall we? It’s *GIVEAWAY* time!

by Creative Junkie on September 18, 2009

Once upon a time, I lived in a small condo with a four year old daughter who, at the time, was into all things jewelry, specifically beads and when I say into, I mean it in a totally MOMMY! LOOK! I GLUED THEM ALL OVER MYSELF! AM I PRETTY? kind of way.

One day I apparently suffered either a massive case of stupid or a brain aneurysm. I’m not sure which, because for some reason, I carried one of her large, acrylic storage boxes into our bathroom. This particular box contained 10,003 microscopic beads of every color under every sun of every planet known to God and all His friends. And then the box was inexplicably attacked by gravity and plummeted to the floor, whereupon it exploded, sending 10,001 of those suckers flying everywhere. The remaining two were inadvertently inhaled by me as I was screaming SHIT SHIT SHIT ON A STICK twenty-four times.

My bathroom floor looked as if a herd of pygmy bunnies had gorged themselves on glittery Crayola and then turbo pooped all over it.

So, I have bead issues. If I ever fully recover from the post traumatic stress, I might be willing to entertain the thought of allowing them in the house again. But until then? Not for love or money or a quickie with Anderson Cooper.

Kidding! I just threw that last one in there, for effect. I love you, Anderson! Call me.

You know who doesn’t have issues with beads or gravity or restraining orders from hottie silver-haired news anchors who don’t return messages?

Who does some pretty awesome things with freshwater pearls and semi-precious gems and glass beads and Swarovski crystals and wire?

Hi Cheryl! ((waving))

Cheryl’s got herself an Etsy shop called Ample Goddess Jewelry.

She designs jewelry.

I love it when I can state the obvious!

I can’t stop staring at this bracelet. It’s so dang pretty.

I’m trying to clean up my potty mouth, but holy shit, it’s hard.

Cheryl likes to cuss too. I believe her favorite is Oh Heeeeeeeelllll No. Isn’t that sweet? Although I think I need to school her in the more colorful vocabulary that comes spewing out of my mouth upon occasion.

It makes life much more interesting.


anklet_ fuschia_ pink_pearl_reg

This is an anklet. You wear it around your ankle.

See? Stating the obvious is fun!

I like the twisty things Cheryl did with the wire stuff in between those beady things.

And I’m sure she totally appreciates my technical know-how when I describe her items.

You’re welcome, Cheryl!

If I didn’t think it would scare the bejeebers out of all my neighbors, I’d wear nothing but this anklet and risk yet another indecent exposure citation. But my neighbors like their bejeebers and who am I to suck the joy out of their lives?

It’s not like I’m their mom, you know.



These earrings make me happy. Cheryl combined two of my favorite colors on this planet – fuchsia and lime. I remember one time I asked Nate to paint our bedroom these very same colors. Nate probably doesn’t remember it though. It’s hard to remember stuff with all that hyperventilating and seizing going on.

To this day, our bedroom remains a seasick cookie monster hue.

I can’t talk about it.



Here’s another bracelet. You may now commence “oohing” and “aaaahing.”

You know what’s special about this bracelet? It’s plus size, for the larger woman. That’s because Cheryl makes bracelets and anklets for the average woman and the plus size woman. She’ll specify the size of a particular piece and then indicate whether the piece can be shortened or lengthened, depending on your need.

Isn’t that nice? How many of you have worn an anklet only have it snap off the nanosecond you move, causing it to burst off your ankle, ricochet around the room and wind up somewhere north of the YucatΓ‘n Peninsula? Or fallen in love with a bracelet only to discover that it cuts off your blood supply when you wear it? What’s the sense in looking all pretty when you’re trapped in an ambulance on your way to the hospital to get your hand amputated? Where’s the fun in that, I ask you?

Did you know I have skinny wrists? I do. They are the only skinny thing on me and look pretty much out of place on the rest of my landscape. I think God got distracted by a wayward angel 42 years ago and confused my purchase order with that of Charles Schulz, just long enough to attach my hands onto my arms with twigs from Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tree. The second I step through the pearly gates, I’m determined to ask Him why he did this, right after “The seventies? Seriously? What was up with that?”


anklet_red garnet_all

Here’s one of Cheryl’s anklets that can be worn by anyone, so long as they have ankles. So if you have average ankles or large ankles, you’re all set!

Or if your average ankles occasionally suffer an identity crisis and think they’re the Hoover Dam by retaining more water than Lake Mead, you’re good to go!

I’d be good to go.



Cheryl also makes necklaces. Isn’t this gorgeous? I’m not sure what those copper bead things are called, but I’d like to hot glue them all over my computer. Maybe then I’d think twice about flinging my computer out the window.

I’d really miss those beads.



Here’s another necklace with copper beads. Scrumptious, no? I’m falling in love with copper. Especially when it’s paired with red. The combination is just so … elegant and sophisticated.

Just like me!

Except not really.

Which reminds me … did you know that pennies are technically not made of copper? Their guts are made of zinc and then they’re coated in copper to make them look pretty and shiny.

Just like me!

Except not really.

My guts are just … guts. And the last time I was shiny was when I was wearing a placenta.


earrings_stamped_copperSpeaking of pennies, don’t these earrings remind you of them? I love these. My fifteen year old daughter wants them for Christmas. I know this because she glanced over my way as I was writing this post and yelled OH MY GOD, I WANT THOSE FOR CHRISTMAS OR I WILL DIE.

Isn’t she subtle? She gets that from me. I am the walking personification of subtlety. That’s why I call up my brother every few months and holler FOR SHIT’S SAKE, TINO! WHY AREN’T YOU MARRIED YET? INQUIRING MOMS WANT TO KNOW. Because my mother knows she can depend on me to be discreet.

By the way, Cheryl also has a fifteen year old daughter.

It’s amazing we’re still alive, isn’t it Cheryl? Did you get your combat pay yet? I’m still waiting.

Stupid bureaucratic red tape.



Can we just take a moment to appreciate the I WILL SELL MY FIRSTBORN FOR THIS-ness of this bracelet?

This one is plus size but can be adjusted smaller.

Hey Cheryl – I’m going to Fedex my thighs to you. See what you can do, OK?



I think I’m in a yellow-green stage in my life. I’m just drawn to it because it’s fun and cheerful and whimsical and goes so well with all shades of purples and pinks.

It’s all about the color, baby!

The more, the better!

That’s my motto.

I’m married to a man who’s all about color too, provided the color starts with the letter “BEIGE” and ends with the letter “BEIGE.”

We have issues.



I think these whimsical earrings would look much better dangling from my ears than from this pale white vase.

Then again, I haven’t been tan since I hit a tanning booth the week before I got married which was over a decade ago so it’s entirely possible no one would be able to tell the difference.



I think the play of teal against copper here is fun. It’s just a fun necklace, don’t you think? My mother might refer to this necklace as delightful or lovely or MINE, ALL MINE.

Now, since you’re probably wondering what I’m giving away, let’s get on with it, shall we?

We shall.

Up for grabs:


An item of your choice from Cheryl’s Etsy shop, up to a maximum value of $50.

Need I remind you that the holidays are coming up?

And for those of you interested … there are only 98 days until Christmas. Don’t hate me. It wasn’t my idea to have the big guy born that day. Go yell at his mom. It’s always the mom’s fault.

Wouldn’t it be nice to pick something up for someone special? Or, if you’re anything like me, screw everybody else and get something for yourself!

Just kidding!

Sort of.


Here’s the scoop:

  • To enter, leave a comment in this post and tell me what color you would paint your walls, if you had your druthers. I don’t have druthers anymore. Instead, I have Nate and thusly, will never have Smoked Eggplant walls in my family room.
  • If someone has some extra druthers laying around, I’ll take them.
  • Anyone 18 or older can enter. Age does have its benefits! Deal with that, gravity.
  • No entries after 9:00 pm eastern time on Sunday, September 20, because that’s when I fully intend to be comfortably ensconced on the couch and beseeching Nate to turn the channel because football sucks. Yes, I’m assuming that a football game will be on since it’s a day that ends with a “y.”
  • You know the drill. Random.org. Now, come on. Don’t be hatin’ on random.org. The alternative is me choosing a winner and then you’re left to the mercy of my hormones and that is just all kinds of stupid crazy OH MY GAWD. If you don’t believe me, just ask Nate. He’s hiding around here somewhere.
  • Please, one entry per person. PLEEEEEEEASE, with sugar on top? I promise, your comment will show up, if not immediately then soon thereafter. Kind of like my period.
  • Despite my flogging it with a wet noodle, my blog theme Thesis is still messing with my comment numbers. It numbers all the way to up comment #500 and then starts back at #1 again. It’s infuriating but I’m aware of it so go ahead and post your comment and don’t worry if there are duplicate numbers – I’m on top of it!
  • That’s what she said.
  • I’ll announce the winner on Monday!


That’s it!

Now go forth and paint one of your walls fuchsia pink with lime polka dots.

And think of me fondly.

Good luck!

Coffee colored walls……

Because I need all the help I can get to be lucid in the morning.

ConnieFoggles September 18, 2009 at 2:12 am

I’d paint my walls peach because when people ask me how I’m doing, I answer, “peachy”.

Amy September 18, 2009 at 2:44 am

Cheryl’s jewellery is fab! When I finally stop living in rented beige appartments, my walls will be eggplant, with citron, fuschia, and navy blue soft furnishings. In the meantime, I’m working on the soft furnishings. Yum! But like the Beach Boys “Wouldn’t it be nice” it seems the more I talk about it, it only makes it worse to live without it… Oh wouldn’t it be nice?…

Ashley Robinson September 18, 2009 at 3:08 am

I would paint my walls black and maroon…I like darkness lol

Jocelyn September 18, 2009 at 3:32 am

I’d paint my wallsocean pale blue and white to remind me of seaside dreams.

HeatherLeah September 18, 2009 at 6:15 am

I’d use a really deep, dark, red-orange.. Think tigerlily, but darker. πŸ™‚

Janet F September 18, 2009 at 6:41 am

I would paint my walls cream.

janetfaye (at) gmail (dot) com

breeoxd September 18, 2009 at 6:48 am

OMG thats what she said HAHAHAHAHAHH
Ok, i would paint my walls red. I love red walls. I used to have a red kitchen/living room combo, back when I was single. But now all color purchases have to be screened with the honey. Who only loves grey and beige. And sometimes I want to turn him in for a more colorful model.

Mary September 18, 2009 at 7:06 am

I will paint my walls cranberry soon!

lenora September 18, 2009 at 7:40 am

French blue with eggshell trim. We have a 3 bedroom condo currently the guest bedroom is painted seaglass green, every other wall in the house is beige and the carpet is beige. I need color help.

Katie Johnson September 18, 2009 at 8:05 am

I am planning to re-paint my living room and kitchen (they blend together) a dark mustard color. They are sunny yellow right now and it’s just too bright. I like warm, cozy colors!

I can say with some degree of certainty that some day, my walls will be “Soft Linen” or “Garden Moss” because I have a few five gallon bucket of Soft Linen and Garden Moss paint taking up a lot of space down in the basement. (Which, by the way, is Dayglo Canary Yellow. It hurts my eyes to go in the basement, so I don’t.)

I’m not sure *when* the walls will transform, as they’re presently covered in 44 year old, Laura Ashley Had a Bad Acid Trip and Died Here wallpaper. This wallpaper needs to be removed, then the walls scrubbed down, sanded, wiped down, primed and painted. I know this will happen someday because of the hundreds of dollars worth of aforementioned paint – Hubby would shit twice and die, as the saying goes, to waste that much money on paint that goes bad before we used it.


In the meantime, big props to Cheryl for making jewelry for the less skinny gal, like myself. It’s embarrassing to have to wear belts and necklaces as anklets, y’know?

See you soon!

Diana A. September 18, 2009 at 8:27 am

I already painted my walls 3 weeks ago. I have a dream blue room with white ceiling and trims, a pale pink room with a hole wall in red and another room with peach tons. Hope this helps!

Eliane T. September 18, 2009 at 8:34 am

What a lovely shop!
I would paint my walls lavender. Because it relax ^^
Thanks a lot.

Juliana September 18, 2009 at 8:44 am

We are hoping that a certain house will be ours soon…just waiting to hear! (And waiting…and waiting…) Anyhow, the bedroom needs to be repainted because of the new windows, and I am thinking of staying with the same color, which is kind of a caramel color. Wow. That sounds sort of disgusting, but it actually looks really pretty.

Maybe I’ll get to walk around the new house with the new bracelet! πŸ˜€

Thank you!

Lu Robinson September 18, 2009 at 8:53 am

I want to paint my kitchen navy blue – at least one wall – i have white cabinets and greyish counters and think it would really pop – maybe some yellow accents – who knows but i am sure the husband will never go for it.

Love the shop of jewelry!


Eve September 18, 2009 at 8:58 am

That is some pretty jewelry!!

amy September 18, 2009 at 8:59 am

if i were bold enough, i’d use tiffany blue in more than just the bathroom… with touches of warm browns and reds for accents…. but i’m not so bold. gosh what beautiful goodies – love that teal and copper necklace!

bunnyb September 18, 2009 at 9:00 am

I would paint them cream, but dream of having red walls! A gorgeous shade of purple would be nice too!

Jennifer September 18, 2009 at 9:12 am

If my husband could tolerate ANYthing but flat eggshell paint, I’d paint the family room barn red, the kitchen/dining room amber, the living room sage and the bedrooms lavender (my DD), sage/brown stripes (my DS), and olive and taupe (mine!).

Alas…I feel I am destined to be surrounded by beige carpeting and eggshell walls till I am buried in a FIRE ENGINE RED COFFIN. It’s in my will.

stacey@Havoc&Mayhem September 18, 2009 at 9:16 am

Love those bracelets! We painted our living room walls, 9 years after moving in, a warm yet pale color of golden yellow. We waited 9 years because DH is afraid of color & lives in fear of hating the color once it is on.

Apparently local ordinances only allow you to paint the walls once & then you are stuck with that color for life. At least in his mind anyway

tracey September 18, 2009 at 9:50 am

we’re going to repaint- eventually. i want to paint the hallway a cafe au lait color, and i’d love a tree branch silhouette on the long wall, with owls.

dh doesn’t understand the owls, though.

mickeyfan September 18, 2009 at 9:50 am

First of all, may I say I just found your blog and you crack me up! Wow, you even talk like me!! (Tho shit on a stick is a new one I may have to start using) Ok, back to wall color. Luckily, my hubby does NOT paint and what’s he gonna do when I whip out a can and say “Look honey, this is going to be the new livingroom color”? They are a terra cotta color (2 tones).
When his mom, (who can never figure out why more than one tone–the lightest–on a paint card is available) walked in right after I did it, these were the exact words out of her mouth…”Oh myyyyyyy.” At that point, I KNEW it was perfect!!

Jennie September 18, 2009 at 10:14 am

Geeze I think you’re my new girl crush – love enjoying your blog with my morning cup of coffee!

I just painted my laundry room a greyish blue – hoping that it will help relax me so I don’t whine so much when I do 7,000 loads of laundry per day.

I’d love to paint my living room walls granny smith apple green with one black wall – but I can’t talk my DH into that one yet.

Love the jewlery – thanks for sharing!

September 18, 2009 at 10:19 am

wow, 14 pages of goodies? I like them all, but esp. these:
Plus Size Purple Amethyst and Freshwater Pearl Bracelet

I would paint my walls a Tuscany, mustardy, yellow or a coffee with cream.
Or maybe a lavender-ish gray.

Beth Nixon September 18, 2009 at 10:28 am

Hmm, I wouldn’t care about the color of my walls if I had one of those bracelets to stare at all day long!

Ok, I would just like the colors of my walls to match the damn color we painted the living room. It seems getting the same color would be too much to ask and, instead, it’s a color that makes my eyes hurt. (see, I really need to stare at something other than my walls!)

Jana September 18, 2009 at 10:29 am

My bathroom is currently #1 on my to-paint list, and I’m going back and forth between a deep, dark, lovely grey and a chocolate brown . . . with ‘chocolate’ in the name, brown will probably be the winner πŸ™‚

Lindsey September 18, 2009 at 10:34 am

Orange. I love orange. But maybe just one accent wall and not the whole room.

LisaZ September 18, 2009 at 10:36 am

One color…white chocolate mocha. I want to take my next Starbucks WCM frap to my paint store and tell them I want this color. I love it!!

Off to wipe the drool from my mouth…I soooo want the first bracelet you showed, and the anklet, and the other bracelet….SERIOUSLY!! Why’d you do this to me!!

meanmomdigitalproductions September 18, 2009 at 10:36 am

I love those..paint..hmmm something like maybe blue not just not any blue..a blue of calm and stabilizing tone.

Shannon September 18, 2009 at 10:39 am

I have all different colors in my house… my kitchen is red, the dining room is a mustartdy yellow color and the living room is dark brown while the family room is a sage green. I painted my daughters bedroom lime green (I love it it is so bright and cheerful!) The only color my husband won’t let me paint is pink. I would love to do a room in bright pink and orange someday!

Kellee September 18, 2009 at 10:39 am

I live in an apartment that has boring eggshell walls…if I could my office/scrapbook room would be painted purple…or lavender with purple and green stripes…really anything but eggshell!

Sarah September 18, 2009 at 10:42 am

What a well timed question, the almost-wifey and I are moving into a new house in two weeks and the entire house is painted khaki. Actually, I believe the contractors call it ‘desert floor’ which is SAND…and makes me parched just looking at it.

So we need color. I would love an entire house of grassy and peridot greens, robins egg blue, crispest of crisp white with a bit of orange and red thrown in for fun.

Talk to me in a year, maybe I’ll have it…(but until then a lovely, colorful bit of jewelry would be nice).

Randa September 18, 2009 at 10:53 am

If I was braver i’d paint my walls lime green with black accents. I love the color combo. But i’m a chicken. Love the jewelry, it is beautiful!

Jingle September 18, 2009 at 10:56 am

Red. Gorgeous, stunning red. I love red walls. I also really like grey walls. And caramel walls. And anything but fugly ecru walls. Ecru is bad. White is even better than ecru. Just say’n. Oh…and her jewelry is freaking amazing!!!!!!

Tami September 18, 2009 at 10:56 am

Buttery yellow or Robin egg blue. I am not a ‘blue’ fan as a rule but I would love that in a room…haven’t decided which room.

Your blog is hilarious btw.

Michelle D. September 18, 2009 at 10:57 am

I want to paint my bedroom in a light teal or silvery blue =)

September 18, 2009 at 11:02 am

sometimes i want to paint my bedroom walls a rich chocolately velvety brown, so it’s like i’m sleeping in a cocoon of chocolate pudding… mmmm…

and then other times, i’m like “RED!! RED RED RED RED RED!!!” and then throw in some orange and yellow pillows, and a sultan’s bed, and some billowy curtains….


warm chocolatey deliciousness, or RED RED SEXY SULTAN RED!!

barb September 18, 2009 at 11:03 am

Luckily hubbs will let me paint whatever on the walls. WE’ve had eggplant and grey bedroom walls, lime green laundry room walls, 50’s turquoise and peach bathroom walls and sky blue living room walls. I LOVE color!

Tammy Moore September 18, 2009 at 11:03 am

I’d like my house painted in Restoration Hardware colors. Don’t care which rooms have which really, I just love them. UNFORTUNATELY I don’t know anyone who can poop gold (YET!), so I have to go with the colors that were painted when we moved in. Not bad (rust, sage green, maroon), but not what we would’ve picked.

LOVE the jewelry – sparkly and dangly, my favorite! πŸ™‚

Heather D. September 18, 2009 at 11:05 am

I’d love a warm chocolate color or even e cranberry red accent wall

Jennifer Wilson September 18, 2009 at 11:06 am

I have a Behr color I love.. it’s called Wild Honey. It’s a buttery tan. It’s not the perfect neutral, but the name of it makes me love it! It makes me think of frolicking in a meadow.

Peggy September 18, 2009 at 11:07 am

I love this jewelry! And I’m new to your blog and love that too! Why oh why can’t I have friends like you with a sense of humor? Or neighbors? I’d take you as a neighbor. Mine just sit on their porch and drink coffee and wait for the FedEx guy to come to my house to intercept my packages and tell him I’m at the office and then grill me on what was in them. I need to order something more interesting than craft supplies. I owe it to my neighbors.

Karen Darmanie September 18, 2009 at 11:08 am

Oh most definitely fuchsia !!! I am with you…it is a fabulous color !!!! What a great way to wake up every morning to that color…..hmm…thinking now that I’ll soon be a single woman….it’s time to paint the bedroom my color !!!!!

Peggy September 18, 2009 at 11:09 am

Oh Crap. I forgot to answer the question. I’d like a deep blood red wall. Red makes me happy. I suppose I should have it in the kitchen to help hide all those spaghetti sauce splashes around the stove.

Chris H. September 18, 2009 at 11:11 am

We have a problem in our house of agreeing on a color and then having the courage to apply it to the walls. It took 3 brands of paint to get the red we were looking for in our living room. The swatches looked great, but totally different story when spread on the walls. Someday (soon, I hope) we will agree on a green hue for the remaining hallway areas and downstairs rooms (they all flow from one into the other). I would like a pretty blue or lavender for our master bedroom/bath.

Lori in Phx September 18, 2009 at 11:21 am

I’m thinking a nice coffee color in the master….or maybe a pretty light purpley color…i’m so undecided! Love the jewelry – so does my girl!

Christina September 18, 2009 at 11:24 am

I’d paint my office walls a lovely shade of green and accent with rose colored accessories….well that is the plan.

BTW, I know Cheryl. She ROCKS…and so does her jewelry. And I am sooo glad to have found YOUR blog…love it too:-)

Jamie September 18, 2009 at 11:29 am

That’s a hard question and my walls remain the greenish sort of silvery sage color they were when we moved into the house. That doesn’t sound bad, right? Silver sage. Sounds pretty. Except that EVERY WALL is painted that color. I’m not even kidding. Kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedrooms, half-bathroom, entryway. Every wall. Everything except the interior of the closets. Those are white. But they’re disguised by all the crap in the closets and you’d be hard-pressed to catch a glimpse of wall in any closet so for all practical purposes, all of my walls are the silver sage color.

Do I lose my entry for indecision? I can’t figure out what my druthers are.

How ’bout if I would touch up the scratches, scuffs, chips, and problems from when I thought it would be cute to tape up Christmas cards around the doorway and then took them down carelessly leaving scars and just used more of the five-gallon bucket of silver sage? Does that qualify even though it is a druthers-free answer?

Amber G September 18, 2009 at 11:29 am

I would paint my walls Lavender if I could!

Jaden September 18, 2009 at 11:32 am

I would totally paint my walls shades if blue, green, and lavendar…. Oh and a yellow kitchen! I love color like you πŸ™‚

Robin September 18, 2009 at 11:36 am

In our basement our fireplace juts out from the wall, and I’ve always wanted to accent it with a deep radiccio (hope that’s spelled right) colour. I always have good intentions, just have difficulties with the follow through…..

Monique September 18, 2009 at 11:46 am

If I had the guts to paint my walls any colour I wanted, I’d paint the kitchen a soft yellow, my craft room a rich purple, and my DD’s room with different shades of pink in stripes! Thanks for the giveaway, I’ve found a few things there that I just had to put in my faves. If I don’t win I just might have to buy them anyways, they are gorgeous!

Bronwen September 18, 2009 at 11:47 am

Peony, cause we can’t grow them down here.

Heather September 18, 2009 at 11:50 am

If I could paint my walls any color I’d pick bright apple green. In fact I’d do my whole house in shades of green if I could. Oh and the 20th is my birthday so I’m really hoping I win. πŸ™‚

Lisa Love September 18, 2009 at 11:51 am

I just LOVE Cheryl’s jewelry, and this blog for that matter!

My walls? TEAL and light brown!

Good luck everyone!


Sarah September 18, 2009 at 12:12 pm

My bedroom is desperately in need of a new color. And I am really liking the idea of a light smoky bluish gray (is there a technical name for that somewhere?). Sounds so relaxing, and easy to coordinate with. Oh, I am LOVING the jewelry, and your blog is a riot!

Theresa September 18, 2009 at 12:13 pm

I would paint my walls golden yellow. Warm and bright.

Holly September 18, 2009 at 12:19 pm

I would paint my kitchen walls Apple Green. We just remodeled and I hate the neutral color I reluctantly agreed to. It NEEDS to be Apple Green. I am currently trying to convince the husband, but he is anti-any-shade-of-green-but-especially-bright-green.

becky September 18, 2009 at 12:30 pm

Sage green–peaceful and relaxing!!

fabu jewelry!!

photojenic September 18, 2009 at 12:31 pm

I would totally decorate and paint my house to look like a Starbucks. I love the coffee house look. In reality I’d say our house looks more like “modern garage sale” with a side of “none-of-this-goes-together” and a pinch of “we-must-be-colorblind.”

I love the beautiful green bracelet. I could look at it when the house is so bad that even trying to cross the living room means risking your life. (And she wouldn’t even have the change the size. πŸ˜€ )

Heather M September 18, 2009 at 12:32 pm

Love this Jewelry!! I want to Paint my Living Room Red… but Jon won’t Let me!!
Like this color red


Deb K September 18, 2009 at 12:47 pm

We just got new furniture and it is black with a silver swirl~So I would love to paint the walls a Bright Silver with Black Trim! My Honey is not too cool with the colors but I think I will just give him that look and then it will get done~MY WAY!

Thanks so much for the chance to win~I was window shopping and she sure has beautiful jewelry!

Cee S. September 18, 2009 at 12:50 pm

There’s so much there to love! I love the swirled copper earrings, the freshwater pearl necklace (what a neat clasp/copper swirl), and I also love the Hot Pink Fuchsia Crazy Lace Agate and Hoop Link Silver Necklace. GORGEOUS!!!

Kerry September 18, 2009 at 12:57 pm

I wanted tan, my husband wanted green, so we’re going with sunshine yellow. Funny how that works!

ModChick September 18, 2009 at 1:02 pm

Oh I would paint my walls Pale Avocado because it would go perfectly with the one bracelet *sigh*

Kellie B September 18, 2009 at 1:05 pm

I would paint my walls Hemp Seed by Benjamin Moore – because I love it in my basement, and there should really be more hemp seed in this world!

katybee8 September 18, 2009 at 1:05 pm

Beautiful jewelry!

Terri Dell September 18, 2009 at 1:07 pm

I want a smoky blue/grey for my living room walls but no one else agrees with me

katybee8 September 18, 2009 at 1:07 pm

And then I forgot the colors. I would do a brick red on one wall and celery on the rest. Very, very light green, so light you can barely see the green. That’s what I’m doing with my living room.

Sorry, the jewelry distracted me.

Carey September 18, 2009 at 1:13 pm

White. Always white. Why? No imagination. Or maybe because we’re lazy. I’m not sure. But I’ve ALWAYS had white walls!

Marcy September 18, 2009 at 1:13 pm

My living room is mustard and my foyer and upper hallway are Persian Blue. I wanted to paint the dining room Eggplant – an almost black purple – but DH kibboshed that. He said it was just too dark. So, I think I am going to go with a green, maybe the Laura Ashley Moss green I recently saw in a pea’s scraproom. Not sure yet, but I want it to fit with the Indian themed colors in the rest of the house.


Susan Taitague September 18, 2009 at 1:20 pm

I would like to paint at least one wall in my house RED! But I guess I’m not that brave…

karen.jersey September 18, 2009 at 1:24 pm

bright granny apple smith green in my bedroom.

Monica Lancaster September 18, 2009 at 1:30 pm

I would paint my walls salmon color.

Pam Keefer September 18, 2009 at 1:35 pm

Cool stuff! Enjoyed the site!

ShanB September 18, 2009 at 1:37 pm

wow they look much better than the ones I’ve been making,

And I”m in the middle of remodeling my kitchen and DH said I can paint any color I want.

i picked burt orange!

Erin Stevenson September 18, 2009 at 1:42 pm

I’ve already got yellow walls and apricot walls and a reddish wall in the basement (aka DH’s man cave). DS’s walls are Buzz Lightyear blue and green and DD’s are turquoise and brown. So I think I need to paint some walls a soft green since it’s my favorite color.

uula September 18, 2009 at 1:50 pm

Light violet.! I am going to paint my bedroom walls violet and have a huge Paris/Eifell Tower poster ;).!

Jen September 18, 2009 at 1:56 pm

I would paint my walls pink. I’ve always wanted a pink room and I considered it for a small bathroom. My husband said “I’m not telling you that you can’t do it, but I would HATE it.” So I haven’t. But I really want to.

hayley l. September 18, 2009 at 1:57 pm

Fun giveaway!

Hmm…if I had my druthers, I would paint my walls the color of an iced caramel latte. (Wow, that sounds boring, huh?)

Thanks for the opportunity.

Andria September 18, 2009 at 2:00 pm

I would paint (and desperatly want to paint) my walls a light coffee color (like coffee with a touch of creamer!) in the living room.

Sarah September 18, 2009 at 2:01 pm

I’d paint my walls *pink*

All of them.

Just because I’m in the process of getting rid of the husband and need to girly the place up!

Janice September 18, 2009 at 2:10 pm

If I could, I would paint all my walls a pretty pink. My husband and sons wouldn’t appreciate it much, but I’d like it!

Nancy S. September 18, 2009 at 2:11 pm

I would love soft blue and/or green walls. I have always loved these colors and will always love these colors. Don’t ask me why my house is done in burgundy and gold. I do all the painting, I have no explanation.

Lorilei September 18, 2009 at 2:11 pm

Well Cheryl is totally gifted!! Love her designs! My last name is Druthers so I think that makes me an automatic shoe in to win (kidding) I would paint my walls a soft pale something… blue or pink or sand or something beachy, shabby chic. They are carmel right now and I am over it….
Thanks for the opportunity!! May the random gods of intergers smile on me… need some bling!

carol in seattle :) September 18, 2009 at 2:12 pm

I’m having a love affair with chocolate and lime – I’d like everything in my life to be chocolate. Or lime. Or both. but not stripes. Cuz that’s just weird. Thanks!

Deb Wisker September 18, 2009 at 2:12 pm

No wild colors here. I think Bob would have a stroke.
I am looking into getting the kitchen and the hallways painted before the holidays though. Maybe BLACK so I don’t have to scrub the handprints from around the light switches every 5 minutes….what’s that about????

Seriously, the kitchen will be white with a painted stencil and I haven’t decided about the hallways yet. I have time…after all, Christmas is 98 days away, you said so yourself!

Kat C. September 18, 2009 at 2:20 pm

Since i was a little girl, i’ve always fantasized about brown walls. and that color stuck up until now. i know, it sounds horrid, but i cant help. im going to paint a wall chocolate brown very very soon πŸ™‚

Heather September 18, 2009 at 2:24 pm

I so desperately want to paint my bedroom Tiffany Blue..I think it would look so good with my cherry furniture.

Joy (Wingnut) September 18, 2009 at 2:37 pm

I wish I had the nerve to paint at least one wall RED. Like Fire Engine Red. I *love* the color red. But I’m afraid of it when it comes to painting walls. And if I had the insane luck (which I don’t) of being the winner…that red bracelet would be ALL MINE!

I’m going to try and stop buying miniature horses and spend some money on Cheryl’s jewelry!

Maree September 18, 2009 at 2:51 pm

You really crack me up, girl! πŸ™‚ Your blog is so fun!

My walls would definitely have to be RED!!! Love, love, love RED :-D, but hate, hate, hate burgandy! πŸ˜›

That jewelry is awesome!!!

Vicky H. September 18, 2009 at 2:58 pm

I would love to have blue painted walls, like a lighter shade of navy, with white framing. Blue is so calming to me, not to mention my favorite color.
