Sodderbug Giveaway!

by Chris on March 16, 2010

When Janelle offered to make me some custom charms from her company, I was aghast.  I don’t have things custom made for me.  I buy things at Goodwill then customize them with spray paint, so this was a HUGE treat for me.


Here’s where things get tricky.  I wanted to show off her brilliant charms!  Easy enough, right?  Well, let’s take a look.


Notice where the camera is.  Then notice where my eyes are.  I’m looking in the mirror.  Smiling at myself.  I know, I know.  Don’t quit my day job.


Let’s try again.  Not bad, you say?  What you don’t know is that I had to crop this one because I had a big ol’ Nemesis hair to the left.  GAR!


Alright, let’s stay focused here.  The point is that Janelle makes some of the most precious charms I’ve seen.  I love anything that can be personalized, so these are right up my alley.

bvbxvc Maybe they’re right up your alley too!  Wanna win some?  Here we go!

What:  One lucky winner will win 2 (not 1) charms from Sodderbug!  That’s valued at $60.00!

Who:  Anyone who comments and tells me what fantastic photography skills I have.  Orrrr, you can just leave a comment.

When:  I’ll announce the winner on Friday!  Can’t wait!  Thank you, Janelle!

Nancy @ Live love laugh March 16, 2010 at 4:48 am

Yes, taking a pic of oneself in the mirror usually takes about 20 shots-I think! I am a disaster! Your charms are so sweet!

Margaret March 16, 2010 at 4:49 am

Great pictures, wonderful giveaway

Robyn March 16, 2010 at 4:49 am

I know most people would put a photo of their children in one but I just know my little doggie would look AWESOME framed around my neck!
Excellent photo skills….I have tried that so many times and if I get all of my face in the shot, I look like a dork…

Kate @ Chic on a Shoestring Decorating March 16, 2010 at 4:51 am

SARGENTS March 16, 2010 at 5:44 am

Once I tried to take a picture of myself with my camera phone to send to my husband who is far away…lets just say, it is not as easy as it looks…at least you had a mirror…after about forty snaps I decided a cropped half faced mad looking woman would be just fine to send. Besides, the desciption fits anyhow! Can't wait to win a charm…yeah!

Anushya March 16, 2010 at 5:59 am

Barbara March 16, 2010 at 1:09 pm

Amazing photography….I mean it!!!
It would take me forever to just get ready…and I don't mean primping, I mean cleaning the mirror and that would lead to cleaning the bathroom and that would lead to finding that the camera battery needs charging….
Love those charms and now I need to go find the windex.

Carmen March 16, 2010 at 1:12 pm

You're so silly! I think you look adorable. I love these charms. I'd love to win!

Thank you for your noble strides in making us all feel better about our photography skills. We all understand that you "staged" this just so we'd be encouraged to keep trying (because, gee, if this is what you call bad, I've got a ways to go before I'm even up to horribly awful!). I love this gorgeous jewelry items, and I completely understand what you mean when you say you're not used to getting customized gifts and that you remake them for yourself from bargain buys. A lot of us are living THAT little dream these days.

You are a brave soul to attempt self-portrait photography, but kudos on the pics…pretty classy considering you didn't use your cell phone and take it in a mirror! Her charms are precious beyond words. Thanks for the chance to win!
