Okay, you can't read Lisa's new book on your Kindle...

Comments are closed! We will announce the winner in a bit.  Thanks so much for your comments!

...but you can enter our giveaway for your very own signed copy.

As you might have heard, (really? I can't imagine where you might have read that news) that the book is comin' out in July.



We are planning a big launch party. It's going to be crazy.

Like, remember the time that the final Harry Potter book came out and EVERYONE went to their local bookstore dressed like wizards and eagerly awaited their copy. After receiving the copy with hands that shook with excitement, they cracked it open and read and read and read. JK Rowling made a midnight appearance at a bookstore to read aloud and almost got trampled to death. Remember that?

Okay, so this is not going to be QUITE that huge.

We are going to make it easy for you to get your own copy without A) Dressing like a wizard, and B) any danger of trampling.

Post a comment on the blog listing your favorite quote or word that you like to stamp on your metal jewelry. One of Lisa's faves is right on the book cover. It reads "What Goes Around, Comes Around" on the large spiral pendant.

We will choose a winner on Friday morning.

P.S. If you have already preordered yours on our (but only on our) website, we will credit your account for the amount of the book and you can buy 2 1/2 design stamps instead. Or anything else you might want that equals $28.00.

My favorite is song lyrics! Specifically "may you find some comfort here" from "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan.

The Chinchilla Family said...

love commitment freedom (it's what my husband and I have engraved inside of our wedding bands in Spanish. However, no one sees it so I would put it on a spiral or washer or something.) In Spanish it's: amor compromiso libertad

I'd LOVE to win Lisa's autographed book!

Courtney Gifford said...

My favorite quote that I like to stamp is "Never doubt I love" from one of Shakespeare's sonnets (Doubt that the stars are fire, doubt that the sun doth move, doubt truth to be a liar, but never doubt I love.) I like to add it to layered stamped pendants for couples, but also stamped with kids names.

PaintinByFaith said...

Never stop dreaming when you do your dreams fail to come true.

I know a little long - but I tend to make larger pendants.

MICHELL said...

My favorite is a quote my husband said to me right after the birth of our first born baby girl, "The purest reflection of our love - Ella". I currently have this on a keychain and hope to put it on a necklace soon.

Christine said...

I would love to win! The word I stamp most, has to be "joy" - But my favorite piece says, "it is what it is" =)

julie said...

Either:
Per ardua ad astra which means through the thorns to the stars or

Mel said...

hmm, I carry around a little notebook whenever I hear a good quote or saying to stamp -- I think my favorite saying right now is "it's never too late to be what you might have been."

I CANNOT wait to receive my copy of this book!

I love words of encouragement, like DREAM, BELIEVE, BALANCE, DANCE, HOPE, and JOY.

Still looking for a good way to display such wordy quotes as these: "the essence of all beautiful art is gratitude" and "words that enlighten the soul are more precious than jewels."

Jen said...

My favorites are Dream and Breathe. They seem to be two things we regularly forget to do when life gets too busy.

Laurie said...

Live, Laugh, Love

Anonymous said...

One of my favorites is .. "Be Filled With Life"

Congrats Lisa on your book. I can't wait to get my own copy!

Susanna

jess said...

"Live, Laugh, & Love" are my favorite words to stamp. I stamped these words on a bracelet that I wear daily just as reminder of what everyday should be filled with!! I am so excited to read Lisa's book and try out some new stamping projects!!!

Beth-Ann said...

Congrats Lisa on your new book!
My husband and I met back in 1995 and were both a fan of music from the band Live. One of our favourite lyrics is "I alone love you." I like to stamp the words "I alone...". Although some may not understand the significance, it is special to my husband and I. I also like that it is left up to interpretation.

Marla Hall said...

I like --- give PEACE a chance
How's that for cool - but so many letters to stamp and still hafta get lower case letters...

Elaine said...

"Mistakes are the portals of discovery" - James Joyce
I love those happy mistakes that turn out better than the original idea!

Monica said...

my favorite quote is faith, love, and hope. I can't wait for Lisa's new book. I have it pre-ordered through Borders!

Laurie Randazzo said...

My favorite is..."Nothing is as it seems".

Meaning: Don't look at other people's lives, houses and think that their lives are better than yours.

Lisa: Best of luck on your book - I cannot wait to see it.

Susan said...

Mine is x rated. "F*** off. I'm Knitting" but that couldn't possibly win so I'll have to go with my next favorite "Believe"
I can't wait for your book to come out Lisa!!!!! You are so movating!

Cap Creations said...

My favorite to stamp on metal is

To the world you may be one person
But to one person you may be the world

Great for mothers and father's day

Be well!
Suzie Morton

Tracey said...

My favorite quote is something really simple, "Believe".

Barb said...

My favorite saying, on one of my first bracelets, is "With our thoughts we create the world"

Anita said...

I give stamped jewelry as teacher gifts. One of my favorite sayings to stamp is “Ancora Imparo” which means I am still learning in Italian. Those words were found scribbled in the margins of a sketch by Michelangelo when he was in his 80’s. I like to add a pearl dangle or two to symbolize pearls of wisdom. As an educator, I share the belief that learning is a life long process and enjoy learning right along with those I teach.

Jodi E said...

I made a bracelet with "Live Your Journey". Journey was my word for 2009 and for 2010 my word is Discover so "Discover Life" is the fav stamp for this year.

Really looking forward to your book! Enjoy the ride!

Anna said...

I like to stamp "let it bee" with a bee stamp!

Connie said...

My dad's favorite saying was "Whatever" that is the first thing I stamped on metal. Can't wait for the book!!

Brenda said...

I like to stamp La Dolce Vita (the sweet life) on bracelets for gifts!

I've pre-ordered my book while at the B&B show.

Christina J. said...

I like to stamp my son's name along with words like create, magic, imagine, cherish, love, believe, etc.

Kris said...

My favorite is "follow your bliss" because it doesn't matter what you love, you should just go after it. ~Kris

Lisa said...

My fav thing to stamp is God Is Good...I use this on alot of stuff and do it in English and in Creole..

I can't wait to see Lisa's book

Pangaea said...

Looking forward to the book! My favorite stamped phrase is "Agility is a Journey." (related to dog agility) I wear mine every day as a reminder to enjoy the ride. Another, as in my avatar, is "I <3 agility."

Cassandra B. said...

Words from my favorite relative that always brings a smile to my face..."You bet!"

Rebekah said...

Ooh, I hope I win this one. I entered last time to win the book. Maybe this time I'll get lucky!

My favorite quote to put on a stamp is "Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be."

brydesigns said...

My favorite quote is: Be the Change. Because really, doesn't it all start with us?

genevra said...

My favorite thing to stamp is kids' names for their mother or grandmother. It's what's dearest to their heart.

maneki said...

I'd love to win that book if the giveaway is open to us outside the US (thinking of the shipping costs).

Can't thinking of anything especially good right now, but a few quoutes/words I kind of like would be:

Semper amemus (may we love forever, our love is forever -- translation depends on who you ask)

Do you believe in dragons?

catlover (my cats made me say that one, cat owned might describe our relationship better...)

Magic (Everyone needs a little magic in life)

Daydreamer ('cause I am one -- and it's a nice song by Sophie Zelmani)

I'm not a big fan of word charms, but I do have a bracelet I made with three charms saying: dream, create, inspire. I kind of like the motto they make together.

Or perhaps something by Bellman or Omar Khayyam? There are so many good poets, but I can't think of any specific quotes right now...

My current favorite is "it's an onion" which kinds of sums up my life. Layer after layer of stuff;ya just gotta keep on peelin'.

Sue said...

Confidence and courage are my favorite two words.

Lisa Niven Kelly said...

wait, what do you mean you can't read my book on a Kindle??? bummer. I guess it doesn't have the same message without pictures :)

Janeen said...

I use LOVE and SMILE a lot, but that's because I'm not all that creative when it comes to words and phrases. The one I think is my new favorite is SHINE.

I am so beyond excited for this book!!

A Loopie Family said...

My favorite word to stamp is "inspire". I make lots of teachers gifts and i think that is just the perfect word for all those who teach our children! I have used it on just about all shapes and items you guys sell:)

Christine said...

"The lyfe so short, the craft so longe to lerne" -- a quote attributed to Chaucer.

Doesn't everyone feel that there is so much to learn in this world, and not nearly enough lifetime to do it in?? :)

glassgirl said...

My customers favorites are live , love, laugh and faith. Pick Me!

DLGray-Wurz said...

Build from your dreams...it's not a quote but, I like it.

"Always in my heart" to acknowledge that although my daughters were not born of my tummy, they alwys have been, and and always will be, in my heart!

Allison

Cheryl said...

My favorite is "HOPE." Just one word...but holds a ton of meaning ;)

Copper Diem said...

"let me listen to me"

angie said...

Although I don't stamp a lot of words, when I do I find that I am drawn to simple words of inspiration....Dream, Inspire, Believe. Short and sweet but meaningful.

Erin Lowden said...

My favorite is "God is Good" on a round pendant for a necklace.

sandi m said...

Lori said...

My favorites..."All is Meant" and "Let your intentions become your reality". Congrats on your book. I would love a signed copy also.

Barbara said...

that's hard! probably "I can do all things through Christ"

Rosalynn said...

My current favorite is "live in the moment". I had a baby almost 3 months ago and I know how quickly they grow up (I have two older kids) so I'm trying to soak in every possible moment every day and just enjoy life.

Bob and Chris Elser said...

Favorite quote: Never say never

CourtneyTyler Designs said...

My favorite quote is LOVE who you are!

The only jewelry I ever wear is an id bracelet with the word "Create" stamped on it... to remind me to always dream and create and be true to that spirit.

Kim F. said...

Lead...inspire...teach on necklaces and keychains for teachers. :)

msigwanza said...

Can't wait to see the book! My favorite quote is not so inspirational but a fun one. . . it is "Gimme!" I pstamped it round and round on a circle pendant with the cupcake stamp in the middle. I thought it would be fun with the purse stamp in the middle or the martini glass or the icecream cone!

suzie said...

Another one of my favorites to stamp on metal is:
"love is..."

Because love can be one thing on one day and another on another day. Or love can be all things or simply living life. It always seems to put a smile on everyone's face be it the person wearing it or someone reading it because it always makes you think about something that makes you happy.

Hope I win!!!!

Be well!
Suzie Morton

suzie said...

one of my other favorites to stamp is: Love is...

It can be one thing on one day and another thing on another day. Or it can be everything or just living life. It always puts a smile on the persons face that is wearing it and those who read it as well because it causes them to think of things that they love.

Hope I win!

Be well
Suzie Morton
