It's the GIVING time of year...Giveaway from Jess' Handmade Jewelry

I haven't been posting much lately. Life has been hectic. Between the basement renovation, work, school, sports, car accident, sickness, Thanksgiving, yadda yadda yadda... it's been put on the backburner.

(Did I really just type Yadda Yadda Yadda?? Oh, my!)

But, I'm back on board..moving forward, ready to tackle the holiday decor, the Christmas shopping, and projects galore!

Thanks for sticking with me, and hanging around! I appreciate each and every one of my loyal followers...and to show how much I do..I'm offering you a GIVEAWAY!! Yep, a Giveaway!!

Jess' Handmade Jewelry (on Facebook), also known as Aquatica Blue on ETSY, has been kind enough to provide ONE lucky TAKING A SUNDAY DRIVE follower a MYSTERY piece of handmade jewelry from her collection.

I've known Jess personally since she was younger then my son is now!
Her jewelry is beautiful! Each piece is handmade and is excellent quality.

Jess' bio from her ETSY page...

"As a biologist, I have forever admired and treasured the colors of the ocean...the deep blues, calm sea greens, and clear turquoises. Since my study abroad to the Caribbean and Central America, I've found a passion for wanting to display the beauty I've seen and the ever present reminder of the ocean creatures in jewelry, particularly earrings and bracelets. In addition, as a tomboy I have finally realized that pink and purple also have a purpose in this world and in conjuction with the ocean colors, I hope to create a wide variety of pieces for everyone alike to enjoy. Thanks for looking!"

Some of my favorite pieces are:

Acrylic and aqua czech glass with starfish charm
Ice Dreams-Czech glass, druk glass and swarovski pearl bracelet set
Romantic Stroll-Swarovski crystal and rondelle chandelier earrings
Multi swarovkski crystals on silver chain
