Giveaway :: Natasha J Collection

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

giveaway

{shop :: Facebook :: Twitter}

If we are going to spend the month focused on “Abundant Love” it only seems fitting I combine two of my loves into one giveaway for you: ceramics and jewelry. Sure, we could focus on them independently (oh, and we will) but what better way to celebrate abundance than with a marriage of the two. It sure doesn’t hurt that we have an artist who takes their craft seriously and creates one of a kind pieces that are more than just jewelry; it’s wearable art.

Natasha Justice has been a maker since the tender age of 10. Recently, the Natasha J Collection has focused solely on ceramic jewelry and her technique and attention to detail have cemented her name in the realm of true artistry. This Sand Dollar Cluster Necklace is a true piece of art and this Leather Lace Wrap Bracelet is a must have for 2014. MUST. HAVE. Come to think of it, the Natasha J Collection is full of must have pieces. Abundantly.

Natasha J Collection is giving away one $50 gift certificate to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Wednesday, February 12th. *Open to US residents only!* Comments now closed…good luck!
Please visit Natasha J Collection and tell us: What was your life dream when you were 10? How close are you?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, February 17th, to see if you’ve won!

    When I was ten my life dream was to be an astronaut or Indiana Jones, and I couldn’t be farther from either.

    I believe my life’s dream at ten was to live on the beach somewhere in the Los Angeles area. Although after traveling up and down most of the coast, I’ve come to realize I’ll never live right on the beach a la Malibu. I’ve still got time to achieve though.

    i wanted to be Nancy Drew! i’m a writer, so it’s close–i solve puzzles with words. 🙂

    To be a cook and own my own cafe, called (with all the creativity a 10-year-old possesses) Cafe Le Yum. I still want to, although I’ve changed the name, and every so often I’ll amuse myself by thinking of clever drink descriptions.

    Tiffany says:

    I wanted to be a veterinarian, until I learned that would involve putting animals down and giving them shots. I then decided I’d be much better at being an animal lover who freely gives animals snuggles and pets. I’m happy to admit I have developed some strong animal snuggling skills since 10.

    I wanted to be a mother and an artist. I’m a mother, but wish I made more time in my life for art. That should be my new year’s resolution 🙂

    my life dream was to be a nurse and go to Africa. I am 50 years later a nurse and I have been to a lot of places like Haiti and south america. I haven’t made it to Africa yet, but it’s still on my “to do” list!

    Julia DeAngelis says:

    Even before I was 10 years old, all the girls in my class were always hoping and wishing to be ballerinas or princesses.  I was always somewhat practical even at such a young age and specifically wanted to be an art teacher.  I had such a passion for art and it continues to grow to this day.  Having received my BFA just this past fall and my education certificate, I am still hoping to reach my goal of becoming an art educator 🙂

    i think when i was ten, i wanted to be a ballerina. when i was finally allowed to go on pointe at thirteen, i couldn’t do it. so…i am an artist, a writer and a comic book editor/letterer…i think i got the better deal in the long run!

    Elizabeth says:

    My dream (which started when I was 7) was to teach high school English and be a dorm mother at a girl’s boarding school in Ivory Coast Africa.  For ten years I wrote to pen pals with students at this particularly school (which inspired my having the goal in the first place).  I continued to plan to teach there until I was a freshman in college – that was when the school closed permanently due to civil warring and my vision kind of died.  Currently, I’m getting a Ph.D. in English and I teach freshman composition, plus I’m a mommy.  So: I have two pieces. English teacher and dorm (or apartment in my case) mom!  The thing I lack – and still long for – is a true sense of community.  I’ve always wanted to have my life and my work be connected through my home. The journey is not done!

    My dream when I was ten was to own a company – pretty far off since having kids set that way back…but they are worth it.

    I like her mosaic diamond necklace. My dream was to be a school teacher. Now I wish I would have dreamed higher.

    I wanted to be a fighter pilot, even at ten. I’m waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay far off of that base!

    Nikki says:

    At 10 there was nothing I wanted more than to be a pioneer girl, or more realistically, a museum docent and curator.  I wanted to run a little white one room museum up in the mountains of gold rush country.  In my twenties I was offered a dream job at the Pioneer Yosemite History Center, where 4th & 5th graders assume the roles of real historical characters and stay over, in costume, doing relevant activities and learning so much (which I had done when I was 10!)  Now I live on a working farm in an old farmhouse, and I still love museums, history, and reading about olden days!

    I used to do musical theater at that age, and I thought about becoming an actress on Broadway. I am now a freight forwarder.

    I want to ride on the US equestrian Olympic team.
    Life had a different plan for me, but i like to think that
    I could have made that dream a reality.

    My life dream changed from month to month when I was young- oh and it still does! It works somehow.

    Not too close. 🙂 I wanted to be a trainer at sea world!

    Courtney J says:

    At age 10, I think I wanted to be a dancer because I loved their costumes. However, I wasn’t taking dancing lessons, and since then, I haven’t taken dancing lessons. So no, I am no closer to my dream. And that’s not even my dream anymore. But…I do like to prance around my house sometimes.

    I think I wanted to be a teacher.  Do not have a teaching degree but I am a stay-at-home-Mom with three wonderful children — learning something new everyday.

    My life dream when I was 10 was to be a ballerina — ha! Nowhere close to that today, but that’s what being 10 is about, right?

    Noma says:

    My dream when I was ten was to become a mad scientist. I  guess growing up in the age of Dexter’s Laboratory and the Powerpuff Girls really rubbed of on me. Right now, I’m in college studying for my Bachelors degree in Biology, so I guess I’m pretty close! But my aspiration has switched towards becoming a physician. So where as I hope to never go mad, the scientist part is still in progress 🙂

    Katie says:

    My dream when I was 10 was to grow up and be a receptionist…until I found out how much receptionists make :(. (I was a receptionists at several jobs!) Don’t get me wrong, I would LOVE to still do that, but I do have to pay the bills. I do work with clients in a customer service sort of way, and I love it too! So, I guess I came pretty close 🙂

    jane says:

    at ten, i wanted to dance ballet professionally but because i have very bad bunions (which got more severe after starting on pointe), i decided to give up because i didn’t want to hurt my feet any further. then i wanted to become a doctor but my grades weren’t good enough, so now i’m doing linguistics in the hopes of becoming a speech therapist!

    Charlotte D. says:

    I wanted to be a teacher.  I had really great teacher in school (and some not so good) who were my role models.  I did not become a teacher because I would not have been good at it.  I have tremendous respect for great teachers and believe they make an impact on our (my) children.  I am a physical therapist so I do teach in a different way and is rewarding.

    Kate B says:

    I read a book titled “Bone from a Dry Sea” when I was younger and it instilled in me a dream of becoming an archaelogist. (Likening reassembling skulls to doing puzzles? You have me SOLD!)

    My dream changed many many times through the years and now I am a freelance graphic designer, which has been my dream for awhile, but I only gathered the courage to follow it just last year!

    My life dream was to be a teacher. Now, I find myself frequently teaching through my current interests… Teaching through my blog, teaching foster parents through my job, and teaching children as we host them in our home.

    Sparrow says:

    At 10, the only thing I could see clearly is that I wanted to be a mother. While I was working on my MA in literature, I looked back at my locked, heart-strewn diary and that is what I had written. That I wanted to be a mother above all else. I am a mother of 2 boys, and within days, I’ll be the mother of a 3rd boy. (How are you doing it? How do you embrace the lovely chaos of 3 boys?!?!). Now my challenge is to be the mother I want to be, while also fitting in all the other dreams I’ve accumulated along the way. It’s a difficult, beautiful, messy, humbling process.

    My dream was to be an artist with an easel and beret on a cobblestone street in Paris.  I might not be any closer to the dream, but it’s still first and foremost in my mind.

    I so desperatly wanted to be some version of Jessica Fletcher, Nancy Drew and Harriet the Spy. Sadly, law school was the closest I came to becoming a cool girl detective. But I’m not sorry – I have embraced life without daily sleuthing.
