This post has been relocated to adhere to Blogher advertising regulations.

Party starts at Fri night and ends Sunday 11pm, so you have all weekend to join.

I LOVE to highlight inspiring posts during the event on the sidebar, so make sure you check in several times over the weekend. You may be next. :)

Highlight from SNS #15

To revv this party up, I'm going to show you one highlight from SNS #15 that really caught my eye. (please check the sidebar during an SNS event for many other highlights that will pop up!)

This is an old dresser that A little bit of Sanity revamped into a kitchen island. Look at the lines on this piece! The top is a ready made butcher block piece from Ikea, costing only $39! The entire island cost under $60 to make. I think the idea and end result is absolutely stunning.

If I ever redo a kitchen again, I'll do something along the lines of using a real furniture piece as opposed to stock cabinets for the island. Why try to simulate a piece of furniture when you can have the real thing?!? Well done, Kirsty!

About the giveaway

We have a really awesome giveaway this weekend. I can barely stand it. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning here because I know you'll love this too. :)

A brand new sponsor to FJI, Beki from The Rusted Chain is generously donating...

... this! No wait... maybe...

... this! Oh no no. Silly me. It must be...

... right! THIS!

Let's back up. Beki, the creator of these gorgeous sterling silver, hand stamped pendants, is offering the winner of this draw a $25.00 credit towards anything they desire from her collection. MANY fall within that credit so I know you will have a hard time choosing. :)

And this one? It's extra special. 

"$10 from every "Blessed Necklace" sold will be donated to Compassion, to help with disaster relief in Haiti."

OK, this is a huge reason to purchase one of her pieces regardless of a win or not. Have you supported Haiti yet? If not, here's the perfect way, along with a little gift of thanks. Amazing concept.

"I have a little help creating the items.
But I, alone, am the shipping department.
And the customer service department.
And the order processing department.
What an amazing journey this has been so far.
Keep up the support! It means so much."

So far, Beki's company has been able to donate $2740!!! Bravo, Beki!

Each of Beki's creations are indeed one of a kind. No two are quite alike, as they are all hand stamped onto sterling silver, with some pieces adorned with perfectly imperfect freshwater pearls, hung on a steel ball chain. When visiting the selections, Beki has also written about where her inspiration comes from with each piece. Don't you love a story attached?  Precious.

"There is so much meaning in this piece. Love is the name of a friend who just adopted a child from Uganda. (could there be a more perfect name?!) You can read her story here."

Blah blah rules for the SNS linkup:

1. Please link up your intended  post, NOT your blog. (post, then click on title of your post, cut and paste that url)

2. Please put a link in your post that leads back to the party so others can see what's up! (scroll button on sidebar if you wish)

3. I've allowed 75 characters in the link title area, so go ahead and tell us you blog name AND project description. Go ahead. There's room. :)

*4. This party is geared for *DIY type projects we can all attempt to make ourselves. Items for sale may be linked up IF your entry is posted on your blog and in tutorial style (unless making the item is self explanatory).

Thanks Beki, for your sponsorship this weekend!

Good luck, and happy weekend inspiration to all. :)
