NOONDAY NECKLACE GIVEAWAY!!!

**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED AND COMMENTS ARE CLOSED.  The randomly drawn winner of this cute multi colored Noonday Collection necklace is... Melody Olson. (Melody, please send your address to lemonademakinmama@comcast.net and I'll get your prize out!**
Several years ago, my man went on a missions trip to India that changed his life.  It truly did.  Our entire family hasn't been the same since and I'm so glad!  There was a young sweet thing named Kelsey, on the mission trip with him, about to get married and change her life.  Since that time, she has also become a new Mama, and has most recently become an Ambassador for Noonday. She is just starting her career with Noonday and asked if I'd be willing to give away one of their gorgeous necklaces away on my blog.  I couldn't wait!

If you don't know much about Noonday, it can be summed up this way- Noonday is a company with heart.  It began when the founders visited friends in Uganda during the process of an international adoption.  Their friends suggested that they bring home some of the goods being made by local artisans, sell them locally, and then use the proceeds toward their adoption.  The sale of each Noonday product provides a way out of poverty for the family of each artisan. This in turn, creates stability for many children who might otherwise be abandoned.  They are making a difference!  I can not help but love an organization like that. Additionally, Noonday gives 10% of trunk show sales directly to adoptive families when they host a trunk show. 

There are tons of gorgeous items at this website. These are a few of my favorites.  :)



This week, I'll be hosting a giveaway for this necklace.  It's so long, it could be wrapped around your neck three times, and still hang fairly long.  The bright, hand-wrapped beads are so colorful, this could go with almost any outfit. 

If you want to host a trunk show, (I'm about to blast all my friends with invitations for one!) or have general questions about Noonday, Kelsey can hook you up here (happyhousewifenw@gmail.com) and if you want to purchase one of the gorgeous Noonday Collection items and help make a difference in the life of a needy family, Kelsey Tolsma can take your orders here!
And now for the fun part.... If you'd like to be entered to win this lovely necklace... go to Kelsey's Noonday page here, take a look around, and leave a comment on this post letting us know your favorite Noonday Collection item in comments! (Only comments left for this post will be counted as entries.)

For additional entries, you can Tweet, Instagram, Pin, Facebook, or blog about it!  (You are also welcome to use the photo above on your blog!)  Make sure and leave a separate comment for each additional entry!

We will announce the random winner next Friday! Good luck you guys and happy weekend!!

I love Noonday, and I have never gotten anything from it. But I love the Funky Paper necklace too or the Violet necklace (that is on backorder, evidently). I'd love the Funky Paper necklace because it goes with everything.
