Lately, I’ve been having dreams about swimming.
And the winner is Liz Nieman, who was commenter number 52. She said,
“Cliche and possibly overdone but how could I not choose creating a human life? By far my greatest accomplishment.”
Congrats, Liz! You win the Quintet Necklace by Lemonade Handmade and a limited edition Mighty Summit print by Ollibird.
If you’re not Liz, there’s still time to enter our tote giveaway, so have at it.
Congratulations to commenter number 533, Dawn, who just won a necklace from Feisty Elle and a brooch from Mama’s Little Babies with her comment:
“Dear crazy over extended younger self,
Stop and take a breath every once in a while. It is good for the soul. And for all that is good in this world stop being so hard on yourself. You are doing amazing things with your life and you will continue to and stop calling yourself fat!
Love, your older self who looks at pictures and wonders how I ever thought I was fat.”
Hooray for you, Dawn! Pretty stuff coming your way.
Today’s giveaway is a little more symbolic. First up is the Quintet Necklace, by one of my favorite etsy jewelers Lemonade Handmade:
I’ve mentioned this necklace before, we gave one to each of the attendees to symbolize the five Life List goals they hoped to accomplish in the coming year. (Nicole did a lovely write up about it.) I love the necklace for its simplicity, and I like the idea of five golden rings being little commitments to yourself. I’ve been wearing mine every day since the Summit. Lovely.
Every year, we have an artist make limited edition prints to commemorate the weekend. This year Alma and Mike Loveland of Ollibird.com did block prints of the vintage blankets we lug onsite to keep everyone warm.
Mike hand painted the blankets for a little pop of color.
Mike and Alma teach all kinds of art and computer classes and they live in the Salt Lake City area. In fact, they’re hosting an art weekend in Salt Lake at this very moment, so head over if you’re in town.
The finished prints each featured a different color, but yours will be plum.
To enter, please tell us about your proudest accomplishment in comments. And the drawings are still open for our the Mighty Summit Giftbag and the Summit Necklace and Brooch giveaway, so throw your hat in there too.

Today’s giveaway features two California jewelry artists.
Every time I wear this piece by Leslie Yang, I get compliments. I’ve actually had people stop me in the street to ask where I got it. It’s made of bamboo, so it’s surprisingly lightweight. I don’t even notice I have it on, and I love how effortlessly it elevates an outfit.
Cute, right? I know!
