Giveaway: Sora Designs “Handmade” + “Sewing Necklace”


We all love handmade items. That’s a give in. Duh! Well, today I am hosting a giveaway that is very much in line with that word. Sora Designs is offering two necklaces to one lucky reader – one that says “handmade” and one that says “sewing”. They’re different lengths, one is long and one is short (click here to see), so you can wear them together. Umm... I’m SUPER jealous of whoever wins!

Before I get to contest entry, let me talk a little bit about the shop. Wen is the owner and in her previous life, she was a senior research analyst for the Judicial Council of California. Her role was to provide evidence-based research data to support policy making in the judicial council in the areas of family lay and juvenile delinquency and dependency court administration. It’s VERY different from what she is doing now, and very inspirational, especially since this month, I’ll be making a huge transition myself. I’ll be leaving my day job to pursue my passion, Madalynne, full time. Finally! That’s a different post for a different day that is coming very soon.

To enter, either follow Madalynne on Instagram here, follow Sora Designs here, or sign up for my newsletter, which you can do so on the right hand side or on the bottom of this blog. Contest opens immediately and will end on Saturday, July 16. After, leave a comment below. If you’re already signed up for both, not problem, just let me know below. Last, contest is open internationally. Good luck!

    Have been following your blog for awhile. Have admired your Noelle but haven’t had a chance to make it yet. Love the necklaces too. Wow what a leap of faith for a totally new direction. Sometimes we just need to push ourselves out of a rut and find a new path to make ourselves feel fulfilled.
