Be My Valentine: Mad About Dots Necklace Giveaway

Hopefully, after loving the pics of my necklace yesterday, you went and took a look at Home Studio.  Isn't their stuff just so fun?  If you did take the time to browse, you may have come across this necklace:

Mad About Dots

The folks at Home Studio have been kind enough to let me give one of these away!  It will include the pendant and the snake chain pictured. Think of it as an early Valentine in honor of all the love I've been shown in this community.  I have had so much fun getting to know those of you who have been regularly stopping by and I wish I could give one to each and every one of you!  But, since there is only one to give away, you'll have to play along for a chance to win.  

Like I said, I've been having fun getting to know some new people and I assume you must find me at least remotely interesting, or you wouldn't come back ;-)  In that spirit, and because soon comes the month of love, to get your chance at that super necklace you need to leave a comment on this post filling in the blanks on the following questions about some of your loves:

1.  The thing I love most about myself is______________.

2.  A place I love and dream of going back to is___________.

3. I secretly (or not so secretly?) would love to know how to_________.

4.  I feel most loved when__________.

So, play along would you?  I'll close the comments Sunday 2/1/09 at 8pm EST.  I'll try to figure out how to work that random number generator thingamajig and then Monday I'll announce the winner and post my answers.  Sound like fun?  Good!  

Oh, and good luck! ;-)

I like that I can overcome just about anything without outward stress

I love to be in Maine - Popham Beach, to be exact -can't wait to someday take the children back there

I would love to be really good at snowboarding or skiing, to keep up with my boys

feel really loved when you come for a visit, when I know it is a huge pain for you, and when my husband is actually home during waking hours, and tells me I've done a good job wrangling the children, even though I don't feel that way, and when KB does dishes because he knows my hands are tired from it.

I just found your blog and am excited to find this offer to boot!
1. I love that people refer to me as a free spirit. Not sure what that means but I am glad to be one.
2. I would love to go back to Italy. There is not enough time to eat drink and walk your way through.
3. I would love love love to know how to play guitar and be as cool as Keith Richards.
4. I feel most loved when I simply answer my phone at work and customers tell me they love me and they don't even know me.
