Tree of Life Collection for Mother's Day Review & Giveaway **Closed**


 
This is a beautiful necklace that I had the pleasure of getting to review and I will be also giving one away in this Tree of Life Collection that I have put together with the help of some of my very best sponsors and friends. This Tree of Life was made by Susan Poirier's Crafts and Creations. She has some of the best looking jewelry and it is so well made that I wish I could buy alot of stuff from her but it just wouldn't be possible. Just take a look at this beautiful bracelet she made at Valentine's Day:

 
And then lastly, these are the earrings she made for me to review for this giveaway but I decided to review the necklace and the earrings both so that you could see just how beautiful they really are:

 
Aren't they just the most gorgeous earrings? She has a pair in her shop right now in a beautiful blue color if you wanted to get them and love blue. I wanted the green because it is my birthstone color for May and that was the whole purpose behind getting the earrings. I had no intentions of getting the Tree of Life necklace but it was so awesome, I just went ahead and bought one for myself also.

I love her philosphy also that she has on her Etsy store: If you don't see what you want, just let me know and I can make it for you!! Follow along and see what items are being made! poirierscraftsandcreations

My next Tree of Life that I wanted to show you is from Lilla Rose and it is a Flexi and I just fell in love with it and decided even though it doesn't match in color, it is Lilla Rose's Tree of Life Flexi and I decided to pair it with this beautiful necklace because it is just as fantastic as the necklace is:

 
I know it is hard to see and my camera is not the best but the middle of the flexi is a shape of a tree and their are some little rhinestones in there that make it twinkle. I got the extra small since my hair is not very long and it is thin so it doesn't take much to pull my front hair back. If I was going to use it as a ponytail like flexi or had thicker hair, I would get a larger size. There is a video you need to watch on Denise Martin's Lilla Rose site that explains how to make sure you get the right size. And even then if you mess up and get the wrong size, you can send it back and get another one. They are pretty fantastic that way! Here is what April's Flexi of the month looks like:

 
I showed you April's Flexi of the month so that you would get a pretty good idea of just how great Lilla Rose makes their products. I wanted you to feel comfortable knowing that these are great products made with love and care so that whoever wins this package will have a great Mother's Day present to themselves or their Mother or maybe even split it up between the two of you. I will leave all the logistics up to you and how you want to do it.

I am also putting in myself a set of 3 silver bangle bracelets:

 
And then lastly there will be a small blue & white cosmetic bag with some perfume samples and lotion samples in it that I hope you will enjoy. I kept the samples in the line of something that would go with a tree or outside or flowers. I tried to keep it all in line with what I would call a collection of Tree of Life items and I hope the surprise will be worth it to the person who wins. Gotta have some mystery don't you think?

 
I have done this review & giveaway different because I have ran out of time. An event that I thought did not start until May 10th got moved up to May 1st and I have to get busy doing sponsor spotlights and I was scared that I might not get this little bag of goodies out if I messed around and did two sponsor spotlights and a giveaway post. So, please forgive me for having to throw 3 posts into one but think I have made it worth your while.

All together this little package is worth $67.00. Good Luck and because I am shipping everything but the Lilla Rose Flexi (I am pretty sure they ship to Canada, if not, I will send her some shipping money), I am making this open to the U.S. and Canada only.

Thank you for offering these beautiful items- each is unique and the creators are obviously gifted! I especially love the TOL necklace. I know the hair piece would be pretty in my hair as well; I have thick, straight hair. hope I win , but thanks again either way to all of you for allowing the chance, either way!
