Lisa Leonard Designs

I'm so excited to tell you about this GIVEAWAY from Lisa Leonard Designs!!   Her jewelry is so unique and just looks like it was made with love. 



 I'm always inspired by stories of people who take risks and follow their hearts to create sucessful businesses.  I think Lisa's story is best told by her: 

I have been making jewelry since high school but I decided to get serious after my first son, David, was born. I wanted to start a small business that would enable me to quit my job and stay home with my boys. At the time, I had never taken any formal classes or received special training in jewelry making. I just went for it! I am kind of the 'jump in and learn as you go' type. Creating jewelry not only allowed me to work from home, but has connected me with so many amazing women along the way.



My desire is to create simple, lovely pieces that can be worn with jeans or your little black dress. I want each piece to meaningful. Our custom jewelry is hand-stamped with your kids’ names or a special phrase or verse. I love to touch my necklace throughout the day and reflect on my husband and my sweet boys.



Each piece we create is a work of art—hand cut, hammered, polished, drilled and assembled with care. I am inspired by other artists--painters, scrapbookers, clothing designers and poets. I also love to soak up nature-the sky, the sea, the green hills. I let all these ideas and images swirl around in my mind and then I create. When an idea hits me I sketch it out and play until the perfect design comes together.  Lisa Leonard Designs exists because moms, grandmas and friends have shared our designs with each other while waiting in line at the grocery store or sipping coffee with a friend.

Lisa has generously offered to give away one of her beautiful pieces to a reader. 



How cute is the spoon above?!  What a perfect gift for a new baby!   And the chandy necklace below?!!  Can you see how unique they are?  See how the names are stamped into the sterling silver?



And yes, I got something wonderful too out of this giveaway!!!  Lisa was sweet enough to send me the Family Crest necklace  (below) and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!  It's just incredible and is the perfect thing to wear everyday.  Seeing the photos of her jewelry is one thing, but they're just amazing in real life.  I haven't been crazier over a piece of jewelry in a VERY long time. 



All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment answering this question:  If you could have any superpower, what would it be?  (And being able to heal people doesn't count because I think most of us would probably choose that, except my husband, who claims he wants a tail, which even isn't a superpower and is so gross.  He won't tell me his real coveted superpower.)     

I'll pick a name at Random, check back on Tuesday to see who won.  If you win, you'll  get to choose your favorite piece from the website & Lisa will send it to you.  Lisa also has a beautiful blog here with lots of pretty inspiration.

...  And I WOULD FLY!!! 
(Flying dreams are the best!!!)

xoxo,
lauren

brigidc111 said...

New to your blog-enjoying very much! As for a superpower, as a mom, I think cloning myself would come in handy!

I'd want the superpower of flight - it just seems like a cool thing to be able to do. I love Lisa Leonard jewellery.

Kelly said...

I think I would choose to hear people's thoughts. Partially for selfish reasons, partially not. :-)

Alisa D said...

I love her jewelry! Thanks for the opportunity to win a piece.

Superpower... is sound sleep a superpower? If it is, I want it! ha ha. I have a 5 month old and could sure use it. :) For a more "traditional" super power, I would choose speed... then I could get more done every day!

DustyLu said...

I love the jewelery! Its gorgeous!. just found you through my sweet savannah. Love you blog. lulu

Claiming Our Space said...

I think that if I had to chose it would be to stretch time (so I can get everything on my Daily Do list done) :-) And also to be able to spend more time with Hubs (since he works OOT every week).

Erin said...

Oooooh what a fab giveaway!

Superpower....not ever having to sleep! Just go go go! That counts, right?!

anniedavis said...

Superpower? That's a tough one! I would like to be lightning fast - so I could get my work done faster and get to enjoy playtime more! :)

Kay* said...

hmmmm i love mystique from x-men and always thinks her power of being able to transform into other people is really cool. or perhaps being invisible. that would be cool. i could get to these job interviews early - listen in on what they want in the perfect candidate - and repeat it back to them once it was my turn :) ugh, i can't pick one. too tough.

reading peoples thoughts would be cool but i worry it would be "noisy" all the time.

& what a fabulous giveaway! her pieces are awesome.

Dawn said...

LOve her jewelry...I think flying would be mine!!!

Holly said...

Lovely jewelry! I wish that I could hear my dogs' thoughts!

Dobbygirl said...

Beautiful! I too would love to be able to fly!!!

My House, My Garden said...

Jewelry looks exquisite and so sweet. My superpower would be to have a bit more insight and patience ... with my children, my sister, MY MOTHER!, my husband ... and especially myself. :)

Angela said...

Love your blog, I am thinking that you are a true superwoman!

However, if I could have a superpower, a this moment in time, there is no question, it would be to help the suffering that the Haitians are feeling - NOW!

Design Actually said...

I'm with you, I want to fly! Love the family crest necklace!

elisabeth (bovagoods) said...

i love lisa's work. a friend of mine got one of lisa's necklace's for mother's day this year. isn't that a perfect mother's day gift?

Kendra @ Domestic Princess in Training said...

Yay!!! I love her stuff.

Humm I would want to stop time. Although I could stop time I wouldn’t stop and I could unfreeze any one I wanted.

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Well being in the lactation field...I have always loved the quote " I breastfeed, what's your superpower?"

Hmmm. Mine would be a toss up between swimming underwater without gear....fast and quietly. Or flying. I do both in my dreams sometimes and it is just amazing!

Emily@notionsonnesting.com said...

Wow gorgeous jewelry! If I could have a super power it would be that I could snap my fingers and my house would instantly be clean, that way I could spend more time with my "nestlings."

Ashley, Ryan, and Liam Stinson said...

LOVE the jewelry!
If I could choose a super power, it would be time travel!!!

Sophia said...

I am LOVING these necklaces!

My super power would be mind reading, so I could finally figure out my husband!!!

Nicole said...

Really pretty stuff!

If I could have any super power it would be flight as well. How cool would that be?

Deb said...

My super power would be that I could eat anything I want and not gain weight!

Barcino said...

I love her jewelry! If I could have a superpower I would teletransport so I could make it to Europe for a good latte and still have time to be back to make dinner ;)

Marielle said...

My favorite superpower would be to drop pounds at will--and in just the right places.

Knight Nonprofit Center said...

My superpower would be to fly so I could travel without the hassle!

Jessica Hills said...

I love my flying dreams too! That's what I would want. Great giveaway!

BabyB said...

I would love to be able to fly

emily said...

I played the game with my 5 & 4 year old boys the other day and we decided flying would be the best, but also breathing underwater.

Cristin said...

Wiah I could swim with the dolphins!

Great giveaway!!!

cristin

Erin said...

I would love to be able to talk to animals. Dying to know what my dog thinks....

Amy said...

I would be able to draw beautifully - that's a superpower to me! Gorgeous jewellery!

Deanne said...

I would like the superpower of having the whole house cleaned and organized at once!

molly said...

Love her jewelry! They are exactly the unique kind of pieces I love incorporating into my jewelry and home design.

I would have to say that I would like the power to have more time in a day to get things done. Because there is A LOT I would like to be doing but don't have the time for!

P.S. I love your blog!!

Kathy said...

I would love to be able to go back in time and re-live moments when my daughters were little. Time just flew by...they are big girls now. Thanks for the great giveaway !!!

Kim Francom said...

Absolutely stunning jewelry! (I stumbled upon your blog and love reading it!)

Hands down my superpower would be to move things with my mind. Imagine the possibilities! Faster housework, and it would be pretty fun to prank other people. :)

My Domicile Style said...

Superpower, what a funny question. I think I would like super-speed! Then I could get my house cleaned in one morning!

mary said...

I would choose super-flexibiity/stretchability - like in the Incredibles! Both physical - and emotional! I think the two in one is a great combo.

Market Girl said...

To remove, end or resolve conflict. Yep that's what I would choose.

Red Door Home said...

Great thinking question. My superpower would also be to be able to understand and speak all languages.

Sherrie said...

My superpower would be reading people's minds!

kljswilson said...

Ok, the breastfeeding thing killed me...that is a superpower!

The jewelry is gorgeous. I think I want one of everything.

Superpower..creative, but hard!
I think I would want premonition.
Flying would be cool, but I am afraid of falling (not heights -- just falling...which is weird).

ggisabelle said...

Her jewelry is truly a work of art! Hmmm...the superpower of organization would be my speciality! Loving your blog!

Mrs. Foot said...

I love her jewelery. It's so breathtaking!

I would want to make things better. Not necessarily heal an illness, but cheer someone up no matter what, or fix wrong that's been done to someone. That type of thing. I hate seeing anyone sad/upset...

pve design said...

love Lisa Leonard Designs.

My SuperPower to add to my SuperPower repetoire would be to "time travel." I would go back in time and then go to the future....an easy getaway would be so fun. I would go back to when I was a little girl or when my kids were babies...

Having 3 kids, keeping a home and a business and a husband all happy are my other Superpowers- and surviving a home renovation....eeek!

Lille said...

How lovely! :)
I would just love to be able to have a conversation with my dog-to be able to tell him how much I love him :)

Morgen said...

As a mom of twins I want to be able to sprout extra appendages at will. 3 or 4 arms would be great for all moms, but absolutely essential for moms of multiples.

nannykim said...

Cool jewelry! For super power I would choose the ability to love as God does.

aaronerin said...

Love the jewelry! I would love to influence everyone to think positive; negativity is so pointless.

i hope you all have a creative day said...

The jewelry is so special and beautiful, I love your family crest necklace, so amazing!

I would fly. Definitely. No question.

chaos by katie said...

love her jewelry and I would want to fly for sure! or breathe underwater!

Leslie said...

If I could have any super-power, it would definitely be the ability to instantly travel from one place to another. My sister lives so far away, and I would give ANYTHING to have a cup of coffee with her right now!

As for the jewels...they are so precious. I love the attention to detail and the sentiment.

-Leslie

Jodi said...

My Superpower would be to Freeze Time, just so I could think about how to respond in different situations instead always getting myself in trouble!
And I would be able to do this by holding Lisa's necklace in my hand!!!! This would truly keep me out of the messes I get myself in!

xoxo
Jodi

Sherry said...

LOVE her jewelry. Love her story...so proud of her for 'going for it'.

I wish I could instantly be in a new place with just a twitch of my nose. I'd have morning coffee with my Mom, lunch with my Sisters...and maybe dinner in Paris with my Hubby (so I guess I'd also have to be able to take people with me).

Enjoying your blog so much.

Erin said...

My super power of choice would be time travel, but only to the past, of course. :)

MELISSA said...

I would be able to read minds! I love your blog!! You and your family are adorable!

Hamptontoes said...

Lauren,
What a fun way to get us thinking! My superpower of choice would be the ability to continue to do everything I do, but never feel tired.

Jamie said...

What a great giveaway!

I'd love to be able to fly (at super speed of course) so I could easily spend time with my family, even when work requires me to live on the other side of the world.

Melissa said...

Well, since having four hands is about as gross as having a tail, I'd have the magical power, ala Harry Potter, to yell "accio!" and whatever my poor two, boy-filled hands couldn't reach would zoom to me!

Tiffanie said...

great blog and great giveaway!!

i would want to fly far far away (in my best forest gump voice)

i love to travel but hate airports. i would love to snap my fingers and be either in italy or at a beautiful beach in seconds.

e dot said...

If you could have any superpower, what would it be? teleportation :) knock down my commute and give extra days on vacation for relaxation!

Nadine said...

Love her work! Thanks so much for sharing!!

Nadine

AD said...

love the jewelry!

as for a superpower...I would want to be super fast so that I could do all the household chores quickly and get where I wanted in a flash also! :)

erin said...

First of all...love her work! her designs are just so beautiful and take the hand stamped jewelery to a new level! just beautiful!
Secondly... I would teleport! Not like time machine teleport, but just from one place to another! And I would be able to take my hubs with me! That way we would get to see the world and do all the traveling I want to do and never step foot on an airplane (my hubs is scared to death of airplanes). Teleportation would be AWESOME!

wareagle4 said...

I love Lisa's jewelry!! For a superpower I would pick time-travel and making things disappear! How cool would that be?
Thanks for the giveaway!

Faff Around said...

First, I think Lisa's jewlry is wonderful.

Second, I would choose as my superpower the ability not to worry. My grandmother thought worry was a sin, and just led her life making the best of what came to her and workign hard to change what she could. She didn't worry, she took action instead.

CdnGrl said...

If I could have any superpower, I would have to say that I would want the ability to transport myself anywhere on the planet within a snap. What a great way to visit family and friends that live far away.

tarheel said...

I'd love to get that spoon for the baby my brother is having! I'd love to be lightining quick like Mrs. Incredible!

thestamfordwife said...

Oh my goodness, this jewelry is so gorgeous. Love!

My super power would be lightening speed so I could get everything done and still have time to chill at the end of the day.


(I too LOVE flying dreams)

Colleen Wanek said...

Super power? I would take the lightning speed ...but I would need super energy to keep up with it!

Karen said...

Linda in AZ * said...

* I immensely admire what LISA "D*I*D"... HOW she ADDRESSED "HER DREAM", had the GUTS & took the CHANCES for her to get out there & "just do it", & THEN see how beautifully her personal vision turned out!

(I don't think you could get too much more proud of yourself than that! And oh! HOW P*R*O*U*D one's parent's, family & friends would be, & what a glorious example for our youth of today!)...

THAT is truly "LIVING A DREAM" in which all can share!!! Learning that you really CAN do ANYTHING!!! WOW!!!

For ME, on a more "personal, self-centered goal", I would wish eternal GOOD HEALTH (make that exceptionally good, considering what's gone on the last 4-6 months healthwise!) & the required energy to tackle allllll I'd like to do in this beautiful life!

Thanks for a DREAMY, LVELY & LOVELY WAY to START THINKING about THE DAYAHEAD!!!

Warmest,
Linda in AZ *

6p00e54f9263188833 said...

Yes, Lauren, Lisa's jewelry is even better in person!

How about a laundry-monster-slaying superpower?

Wendy said...

This is an awesome giveaway! I love her jewelry line!!
My superpower would be to do time travel... Many times I'd like to go back and re-live some of my childhood memories specially the ones with my grandparents who are no longer with us.
Thanks Lauren! I'm a big fan and fellow NoVa resident!

Eryn said...

I would want to be invisible. I guess that doesn't really help people, but it would be fun!

Jaimie said...

This is cliche but I would want to fly. I would love to get anywhere fast.

robyn_hollas said...

I love the designs. My niece is finishing up her college education in Metalsmithing. She will be so excited to see the website. I would love for my superpower to be like Elastigirl (The Incredibles, I'm a mom). I could multitask and spend more time with my kiddos.

Great blog!

Lucy said...

Such pretty pieces! I would love to have the power to stop time - so I could finish all of the little nagging things I have to do and enjoy more time with my little girl!

Ruthie's Renewed Treasures said...

Oh Lauren, I love the necklace Lisa gave you. I would choose one just like it!

My superpower would be to play the piano beautifully. Never have played and have always wanted to have that gift. Having an awesome voice to along with it would be cool too.

Ruthie

shannon said...

Hmmm . . .I've never won anything, but can't stop trying :) My superpower would be breathing under water, I had dreams like that as a kid.

Jbird said...

Wow... what beautiful jewelry. More than just "bling." A piece of your heart to wear on your sleeve (or around your neck). ;)

As far as superpower, I have to jump in with the time travel crowd.

Elz said...

I love Lisa's pieces. I just ordered her ornament thsi year for gifts and they were all perfect.

My superpower- flying would be cool, but I'd really like the ability to make people tell the truth. I would be great at trials-did you steal this? Yes! Case closed.

Melaine Thompson said...

Gorgeous! My super power would be to be able to be in more than one place at once! Wouldn't that be great! Just think of all the stuff you could get done! :) Melaine

Lucy said...

Fabulous piece! And I always thought it would be fun to be invisible ;)

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

I think I'm with you Lauren...flying would be awesome...although it would be nice to be able to twitch my nose like Samantha in Bewitched and have my whole house clean in an instant. (I guess that wouldn't really count as a superpower though.)

Love Lisa's stuff!

Thanks for the chance!

Kendal Blanchard said...

Oh her jewelry is amazing! If I could have any superpower I would like to be able to ime travel!!!

sarahrayok said...

I'd love to be able to eat whatever i want without working out!

Cait said...

I would love to be able to read children's minds. I am an elementary art teacher and there are times that I would love to know what is going on in their little heads!!

LOVE Lisa's jewelry...and her Web site is a great reflection of her creativity! Thank you for doing the giveaway!

Your blog is such an inspiration :) Keep up the good work!

patty said...

New to your blog and enjoying it immensely !! Great question re: superpowers. I made on up - I would like the ability to time travel with people to grant them each one wish.....that they can pick one 30 minute event or mistake in their life that they wish never occurred. A conversation, mistake, accident, etc. I could take them and them alone back and grant them the ability to erase one such event per lifetime. Hurricanes, earthquakes, heartbreaks. Although the tail concept of your hubby had me thinking.... Patty

klea said...

My superpower would be to blink and have what you want! Kinda like I dream of Jennie! lol Just BLINK, the house is in order, BLINK, on the beach! Ahhh! How wonderful! :)

Re:Fresh Design Studio said...

Wow, lots of comments to scroll through on this one! I think that speaks to how beautiful Lisa's jewelry is!

I would love to fly for a superpower OR never have to sleep ;)

karima said...

I would love the power to heal...just to be able to see an injury or illness and make it disappear! Can you imagine ridding the world of cancer, aids, everything?
Love her jewelry, beautiful and from the heart.

Melissa said...

My superhero power would have to be the ability to be two places at the same time! :-)

phyllisja said...

Love the jewelry--its speaks to me! so inspirational...my superpower would be to know (read and speak) all languages on earth (some of these blogs are in swedish, french etc. and quite frankly my imagination only goes so far!!!!) and that would be wonderful to communicate with all people...

life is sweet said...

I would like to have Mary Poppins' ability to snap my fingers and have all the things around me suddenly become able to fix/clean themselves up!

i wish i had the power to never need to sleep. imagine how much could get done!

Sara said...

I love Lisa's jewelry :)

I'd have to agree with you on this one and say I'd love to be able to fly! I'd have another perspective of the world and plus..I'd be able to get places faster and save on airfare :)

Riviera Boardwalk said...

Hi! My super power would be to be invisable, kinda like a fly on the wall.

Walking through solid objects. Yes.
Would very much come in handy to one who is expert at forgetting and losing her keys and finding herself in sticky situations.

HeatherH said...

Beautiful necklaces!

My super power would be to snap my fingers and anything could be complete like chores or work. That would be wonderful!

emma said...

ooh - what fun! I've been resisting buying one of these for a while now & with our (herndon) house falling down around us - broken garage door, chimney falling over! - fun shopping is on hold for a bit. Either way, I loved looking @ the site & living through others who've bought these pieces. I'll manage to buy one soon enough (somehow I'll hide the charge on the CC from DH ;-)

emma said...

my superpower would be to finish complete thoughts without going all mommy brain!! :)

nanab said...

beautiful jewelry

Anne Marie said...

Allison said...

LOOOOVE the family crest necklace!

Loving Life in Southern California! said...

Her jewelry is very sweet. You can tell a lot of thought goes into each piece! I love the bracelet with the kid's names on it. What a great Mother's Day gift!

My super power - To be in multiple places at one time.

I'm featuring a new artist on my blog today! She's an emerging painter from Canada. Please check her out! And have a great weekend!

xo, Jami

Annie @ The House That Jade Built said...

I love her pieces - they are stunning. My super power would definitely be flying! I could go anywhere I want & save a ton of gas! Disneyworld here I come!

Courtney said...

love your blog! if i could have a superpower it would be the ability to read minds, which could be good and bad...i suppose that is the problem with superpowers!

annie said...

Lisa's jewelry is wonderful!
Super power....super power.....
I'd like to omnipresent.
I could be helping in Haiti, while digging a well in Africa, feeding the homeless in Chicago and having lunch in a bistro in Paris! (not that having lunch in Paris is all that important...)_
annie

Rachael said...

I'd want to know tomorrow's news today! Or at least tomorrows Lotto numbers... That'd be a real SUPER power. ha!

Thanks!
Rachael

ecmoody said...

Totally loving the jewelry.

A superpower? I would want to be able to move between places very quickly, like warp speed.

Scott and Rebekah said...

If I could have a superpower, I would want to be able to time travel.

Love the jewelry!

CaRoLiNe said...

love love LOVE the illuminate necklace, baby spoons and aqua stone earrings!

My superpower would be teleportation - dinner in Italy and breakfast in Fiji? Don't mind if I do!

Acanthus and Acorn said...

Lauren,
The "tail" thing made me laugh so hard...your reaction was priceless!I would choose having the power to read my children's (teenagers) mind when I sense they are upset or stressed and I can't seem to figure out what the best thing to do or say. The rest of the time, it is probably best that I have no idea what they are thinking!!!

Stickhorsecowgirls said...

I would love the superpower of being to do a "I Dream of Jeanne" fold my arms and blink and the rooms would be transformed just as I pictured them in my head! The jewelry is lovely - hoping to win!

Mary said...

love your site .. for my super power I would definitely go with the Mary Poppins ability to tidy up the nursery. The toys march into place and the clothes fold and put themselves into their proper place all awhile I would be singing a cheery little song in the background.

Mary said...

Cheri said...

Oh, I LOVE Lisa's jewelry! If I don't win I may have to break down and by something for myself, since no one has taken me up on my broad hints yet. *sigh*

Let's see--I want the ability to wiggle my nose, or snap my fingers, and have the house picked up and cleaned instantly. I really hate clutter and messes, but I dislike cleaning, too.

Allison said...

OH! I love Lisa's jewelry and her blog too! She's such an inspiration.

If I had a superpower, it would be to teleport myself places..instead of flying...or waiting in traffic!

Janice Smith said...

I would love to be able to twitch my nose like "Bewitched" and make all kinds of this happen!

Hannah said...

Got a piece of her jewelry as a gift for a friend, I want MY OWN NOW!!!

Superpower - Live Forever (hope that isn't like healing..) I want to be like the Elf people in Lord of the Rings and live and see it all happen..

Other than that, I am with Cheri, Samantha on Bewitched would be fabulous with the nose thing!!

I agree with all of the people that said having a clean house with the snap of my fingers would be awesome. 3 kids + 1 hubby + 2 dogs = A LOT OF DIRT.

jennifer said...

Super speed!! Think of all the things I could accomplish in a short period of time :) Oh to dream ;)

Kristin said...

i would love to be able to eat gluten, which for my body would be a super power.

nanab said...

beautiful!

GayLyn said...

Ummmmmm I think I would like the super power to think outside the box to solve issues and problems with everthing.

DeShawn & Sara said...

LOVE the jewelry!! Have to say I'm with all the ladies who want super speed...that would open up A WORLD of possibilities!

Alisha said...

SO happy to have a Lisa Leonard give away! If I could choose any super power, it would be the ability to switch powers to fit the need of the moment (taken from Heroes) be it speed, strength, freezing or changing of time), etc.

If I could have any superpower that I wanted, I would want to fly because then I could explore any where in the world any time I wanted.

is this cheating? i would have a power of multiple powers. i could fly, time travel, and speak with animals. haha so random.

i have one of her pieces. i received it as a shower gift. it has my daughter's name on it and it is one of my favorite necklaces.

Krisn'lil said...

Love your blog AND her jewelry! It's beautiful:)

If sleeping through the night and waking up with energy is a superpower..then I want it! I would give anything for relaxing sleep and the get-go to get stuff done and keep up with my daughter (and husband!)

Grace said...

My desired superpower - that's easy - to be able to fly. I've always wanted to fly. Then I could be like a duck who can walk, swim, and fly. Who wouldn't want that. I could be Superduck!

Lisa's jewelry is stunning and so pure. I love that Family Crest necklace. My superpower would be to have the ability to just "beam in or out." I'm going to Paris soon and I'm already dreading the 7hour flight. Can't we just pop over?

Ashlee said...

Love your blog. My superpower would be a way to get all my laundry put up right after it gets folded. Not that exciting, but it takes forever to get 3 kids clothes put back!

Tina said...

Hi Lauren:) Thanks for this wonderful post! I too love to hear about people who have the courage to follow their dreams, I find it so incredibly inspirational.. My coveted superpower would be to help everyone realise their dreams and potential, whatever that may be...I hope by studying to be a teacher, that this superpower will in some small way come true:) Happiest of weekends to you, I had better get moving with the Pure Organisation Project # 3!!! - Tina x

Holley said...

Lovely jewelry and so perfect for the woman of today and her many roles. I could change clothes after work and not have to change jewelry - these pieces are so versatile.

My super power choice would be the ability to give people the help they need to achieve mental health. I believe this would result in happy and healthy children and I also think it would be a powerful source to combat drug abuse.

Ashley said...

Her jewelry is so beautiful and personal.

My super power would be the ability to be invisible (and not in the creepy way). I just think it would be so cool to go unseen at times!

Thanks, Lauren. Love the blog.

jane said...

Recently discovered and love your blog. I'm getting ready to do the hall closet makeover.

My super power would be to know which line would move the fastest at the grocery store, movie theatre concession stand, etc. I always pick the wrong one.

Thanks!

I would fly too....love the wind and soaring in the blue sky!

Terri Wright said...

beautiful blog. fun contest. i would love the power to alter time---stop it so i could work and get stuff done.

Loren said...

Not to be a copy cat, but I would totally want to fly. Love your blog.

Nicole said...

I would be able to go back in time, for sure!

becks said...

Beautiful jewelry.
My power would be to instill tolerance and empathy towards others.
Enjoy your blog.

Christine said...

hmm...I would have to say the power change a color of an object at will! Would come in so handy decorating my home and updating my wardrobe!

notes of em said...

I really enjoy your blog, always beautiful, as is the LL jewelry.
My super power would be snapping my fingers and having the room clean, a la Mary Poppins, spoon full of sugar style.

Farrell said...

I would like to be able to hear what babies think. They are so busy and curious about things - my 11 month old seems to really think everything through. Would also be helpful to see if he was hungry or sleepy, etc.

Carol Ann said...

Lisa's jewelry is awesome...love the chandelier necklace.
My superpower would have to be make bad drivers pull over and park...

Rob said...

Lisa Leonard's jewelry is lovely!
If I could have any superpower, it would be the ability to beam myself- with or without my kids -anywhere. Sure would make my trip to their school a breeze!
Thanks for all the great ideas on your blog!

mb said...

Such beautiful and personal jewelry. Thanks for introducing Lisa to me. Oh dear.

Blueprint Bliss said...

Love her pieces. So neat.

I don't know- maybe a magic wand that would do the work when I waved it over a pile of unfolded clothes or a dirty toilet??

Jaclyn said...

My superpower would be to eat whatever I want all the time and never gain weight.

SusieofPearhouse said...

The jewelry is beautiful. I would love to stop time or time travel.

~Chandelier No. 4~ said...

Thank you for introducing us to Lisa. She and her family look like amazing people with awesome spirit! Her jewelry is incredible too!

Hmmm.... my superpower would be read pets minds. Especially when my poor pup is sick, like today. :(

so abram went said...

Oh, gosh, this is so hard to decide...but i think i would choose to either fly or read people's minds. Although the ability to read one's thoughts might backfire on me!

Lauren, I LOVE your blog and your designs. I just started following about a month ago and I check it daily! Thanks for all the inspiration.

-heather-

Judith said...

I've had 'flying' dreams and they are fun so it was a tough choice, but I'd choose being able to communicate with animals for my superpower.
Lovely jewelry!

LeslieM said...

Hi, The jewelry is wonderful and so beautiful!! My super power would be to do the laundry, dishes and grocery shopping all with one click of my finger! I would so much rather be creating then doing those jobs. Oh and I forgot cleaning!

Pretty Little Things for Home & Life said...

I've loved Lisa's stuff for quite some time now. I'd love to win this!

If I were a superhero, I hope I could have the power to silence people. I would use this to avoid listening to people who have nothing nice to say! :)

Kathleen said...

If I could have superhero powers, I would want to see into the future. I've been making some REALLY difficult decisions lately and I am just hoping for the best. To be able to see in the future...would be nice.

Shelby said...

My superpower would be flying! Because I think it would be so fun! And you could avoid rush hour....

Tazim said...

i would choose to time-travel!

tazimd@gmail.com

le @ whoopwhoop said...

I would choose mind reading - but only the good stuff ... with time travel as that's a given yes .... best le

jacqueline said...

Beautiful creations! My most coveted superpower would have to be flying, of course!

Lisa said...

I'd want to be able to stop time. My kids are growing up too fast.

Fabulously french said...

Time travel would be fabulous, so much fun.

Chiaroscuro said...

My superpower wish would be "precognition" held with respect and responsibility.

Thanks for turning us all on to Lisa's beautiful work!

captkangaroo said...

Love your site! Love Lisa's jewelry! What a great combo! I think to make myself invisible would come in handy in a multitude of ways!

kayce hughes said...

I would like to be able to grant contentment.
