Anne Franklin Designs Necklace Giveaway!

Anne of Anne Franklin Designs has got to be one of the most clever entrepreneurs around. She decided to take Scrabble tiles and to repurpose them into necklace charms and key chains. The colorful designs are sealed with a  shiny resin finish and offset by a colorful four-strand combination of ribbon and cord or a ball chain necklace. 

Anne has just started a new “Keep Calm” series. Here are just a few examples. You’ll have to check out her Facebook page or her website for the rest.

Keep Calm, Run On

Keep Calm, Ride On

You know which one I like best, right? It’s a toss up between the beer and the run, but I’ll take the RUN.

Anne keeps her prices reasonable. Part of her mission was to create personalized items that were affordable.  Her necklaces are only $15 ($20 for a special order). Shipping is $3.

Want one of the “keep calm” beauties she makes?

Here’s how to enter (comment for each):

  1. Go to the Anne Franklin Design FB Page (this has more photos than the website), and let me know what you’d get from the “calm” line +1 entry
  2. Write about this giveaway on your blog, FB, Twat, etc. +1 entry
  3. “Like” Anne Franklin Designs on FB + 1 entry
  4. Follow my blog or let me know if you do already + 1 entry

This giveaway will end on 9/26.

Good luck,

SUAR

  71. I follow you and like her page and spread the word. Having the "keep calm run on" necklace would be such an inspiration during my runs. Sometimes when I'm thinking "why am I even trying?!" it helps to have that reminder to look at the big picture not just in the moment. If I have patience and run on I'll reach my goals.
