Hand Mala Giveaway with Blissful Turtle Mala Bags

Happy March! Although there is snow on the ground where I live, I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of Spring. It is a time where everything is born anew....where everything blossoms, emerges and color finally arrives.  In the meantime, I wanted to offer a special giveaway with the theme of Spring!




There will be two winners this time! Thanks to Sheri of Blissful Turtle, who makes beautiful mala and prayer bags that are hand-sewn and stamped.

The 1st winner will receive this knotted magnesite hand mala and Blissful Turtle Namaste bag. This mala has 27 beads of white and blue magnesite with a lovely carved wood guru bead and pewter bead caps. Magnesite is a wonderful creamy white stone with brown veining associated with stress release, calm and creativity. It is paired with a mala pouch made of soft cotton and has a muted red stamping of Namaste with two hands in Anjali mudra on each side.



The 2nd winner will receive this wonderful orange stamped pouch with the "Om" symbol on one side and "Shanti Shanti Shanti" on the other.



Entry is simple! Please make sure to do all the steps and have a way for me to contact you.

  1. What I love about the spring..... The air becomes balmy and more stimulating, as if it is electrified. Everything begins to flow more freely, both hormones, rivers and sap in trees. I see green leaves sprouting from branches, I experience the world around me becoming once again engorged with fresh, lush life as I feel my body responding to the season. I know we all feel it because there is excitement all around. Everything bursts with abundance and vigor is restored in all life once again. ~* Kat

  2. This is a beautiful bracelet and fun giveaway! I love feeling the warmth of sun on my skin in spring. Even in Tucson where warmth is aplenty, those first days of spring feel amazing! Also, it's when our desert tortoises come out of their hibernation.

    Spring for me is a new start. When I see the buds and crocuses pushing through the ground I think, hrmm, I should do my Spring cleanse! Also, I LOVE the colour green.

  16. FYI, "the whole planet" doesn't "come alive" in the spring time. Just one hemisphere. The other slips off to sleep. ;) Here's a credible source: http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/time/seasons.htm

  17. Spring is alive. It is crisp, it is warm. I love little flowers coming out-telling me it is time to dig! I love the water in spring, when I run by the little lakes-I can see the clearness of the water that is still chilly.
