This giveaway is now CLOSED. Many thanks to our wonderful sponsor The Good Cheer Company! We would love to work with you again!

Have you found your piece of the puzzle yet?  
I sure have!

Earlier this summer I entered a giveaway at Coupon Queens of Laurel Run, (now known as a shoppers quest) and I was fortunate enough to win, shortly after winning I also saw this product featured on the Ellen DeGeneres talk show and I was on pins and needles until it arrived.

I wore it daily and have to share that it truly transformed my day everytime I wore it, I find myself reaching for it often. I truly believe words have power, and I chose my pieces based on what I really wanted/needed to manifest in my life at that time. I chose the affirmations 'Blessed' and 'Abundance' (the opposite side of your affirmation will be inscribed 'I Am'). Wearing I am Blessed Abundance daily has been amazing. I have made it a point to wear it when I'm working on a deal and it has become a 'lucky charm' of sorts. I also know when a jewelry item, particularly around my neck has a found it's home when I constantly find myself touching it! (Do you do that too??)

There was a chain of coincidences starting with my win that led me to Ron the owner of 'The Good Cheer Company', could the name possibly be more perfect for a collaboration with Ascending Butterfly? Our mission statement is to seek out and share the best sources of inspiration both on and offline, and I have to say The Good Cheer Company's Piece of the Puzzle Affirmative Jewelry is perfectly in line with our mission statement!

There are 41 Puzzle-Shaped Pewter Tokens to choose from! They are great gifts to remind someone special in your life who they really are, what they mean to you and to help inspire and motivate them to be the best they can be in so many different areas of life. You can also empower and show some love to your beloved pets by purchasing 'The Pet Affirmation Tag' - these can all easily be attached to your dog or cat's collar. Or your pet lizard or snake, if you put collars on them! These are perfect family stocking stuffers!

The only thing missing on their site are the following affirmations 'Ascending' and 'Butterfly' of course! (Hey Ron if you use those, I get a percentage of the sales and the first ones are Mine, Mine, Mine!!!)

These are amazing gifts for family, friends, colleagues, how many of you are part of a secret santa this year at work? It is difficult to find gifts that are reasonably priced (and most of the time secret santa restricts you and gives you a very difficult spending cap to work with), deceptively simple and powerfully meaningful, but with Piece of the Puzzle you get all of the above!

Piece of the Puzzle is our first Holiday Buying Guide Editor's Pick! It meets the criteria of all savvy holiday buyers this season - great price point, the total opposite of a generic gift, amazingly meaningful, and just plain FUN! For these reasons, this is where our holiday buying guide begins. We will be introducing our holiday buying guide editors picks up until and right through New Years Eve! Check back daily to be sure you don't miss a thing!!

WIN IT! - Thanks to our friends at The Good Cheer Company one Ascending Butterfly will have the chance to win an affirmation of their choice on an 18" Leather Necklace with Sterling Silver Hook! (Remember guys are never excluded from our giveaways, and this one being on a leather cord might mean you may want to keep this one for yourself and we couldn't blame you one bit!)
