Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to someone I know very well and is one of my favorite people in the world. Do you have someone who makes you laugh when all you thought you could do was cry? What about someone who will listen to your crazy ideas, even if they get you BOTH in trouble? (Or waste A LOT of money… oops :D) Do you have someone you can quote your favorite movie lines with over and over again and they never get old?
I do. And that person is my sister Dori! (Fondly referred to as The Seester or ‘the other one’.)
Don’t get me wrong, sisters can be annoying too. Especially ones who can cook like gourmet chefs, take photographs that make you stop dead in your tracks, or paint pictures that make you wonder if you got ANY of the talent genes in the family. Seriously, next to her, my artistic and domestic attempts look like I’m banging a stick on a fire hoping for a loaf of bread (think caveman…)
Since I could go on and on, I’ve asked her to give a mini bio about herself:
At my “real job” I am a photographer/designer/customer service rep for a great company. What I really love to do is create beautifully designed pieces of jewelry, scrap greeting cards, and I LOVE still life and landscape photography. I hope that what I create appeals to your tastes but mainly I just want you to appreciate and enjoy what I do. Thank you for taking a peek at what I love!
Now, instead of trying to fight her natural talents (after 20 some odd years it’s about time I realize I won’t win) I’ve decided to flaunt them to a fault! One of her crazy awesome skills is jewelry making; she even has a shop on etsy that showcases her work in resin pieces. Now on to the giveaway! She’s graciously agreed to donate one of her jewelry pieces to one of you lucky winners!
Check out all of Dori’s currently for sale work at her etsy shop, Dori D’nae Designs.
Rain Drops: A hand cast blue resin piece is coupled with two glass beads in the same shade of baby blue. The are attached by twisted silver colored wire in the shape of a chandelier and finished with a blue glass seed bead strung wire that is adjustable to fit just right.
Here are the rules:
