Dear Love Valentine Giveaway!

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
      Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
      Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
      That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
      Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
      Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
      But it bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov'd,
      I never writ, nor no man ever lov'd.

As part of the festivities for this week, I'm very honored to present a lovely giveaway for our party! I won't drag on the preliminaries, though, because I'm just too excited to think about presentation right now. Besides, the above by Shakespeare covers any opinion that I might need a bigger beginning, right?

So, the grand event! I am extremely pleased to announce that there are two gorgeous items that I shall be including in this giveaway.

The first...

I contacted the shop owner early in January about donating an item for a Valentine party giveaway, and she very graciously agreed! Her Etsy shop is currently closed for holiday until the 9th of February, but let me tell you: she has a beautiful shop! I encourage you all to stop bluedrib to check out some of her listings!

And the second...

"How Deep the Father's Love" print by TwoSisterShop.

It was via a friend that I was found this lovely Etsy shop, and I am grateful to them all for assisting me! This print was custom designed for this giveaway, and I don't think it could have been more perfect. The pictures below are additional shots of the print, with the first showing its size next to a pencil.

So, how can you win one of these fantabulous items? Well...

  1. I'm a public follower... I will share this on my blog next time I post (tomorrow).
    True love.... it's loving someone, trusting him/her unlimitedly, and protecting them from hurtful things. True love grows into a beautiful blossom.....if you really want to know what true love is, look in the Bible...there's a love story right there! -

  2. Love is a self-sacrificing desire to meet the need of the one loved. :) Best definition of love ever! The giveaway items are SO pretty!!! Here is the link to my post about your giveaway, etc.

  3. I'm a public follower, and I hearted bluedrib on Etsy. True Love is putting someone else's needs before your own, is steadfast, is kind, is patient, does no wrong, does not waver, and True Love loves unconditionally.

  4. I follow you publicly, I hearted both bluedrib (I've loved those infinity love necklaces forever) and Two Sisters Shop.
    True Love, is sacrifice. Putting someone before your own needs, wants and desires, with reckless regard of your own wishes and personal well being.

  5. Oh! I also hearted the Two Sisters Shop! Sorry, I forgot to say that. :/

  6. Followed publicly and hearted both. :) True love is desiring the best for the other- that best being union with Our Lord in Heaven- even if it means denying them, and putting them before yourself.

    True love is God's unconditional love for us. No matter what we do, He'll still love us. And that's better than any earthly love.

    I already answered this question in a post, but to sum it up, I'll just say: True love is loyalty.

    My definition of true love: Something that lasts forever-it never dies. True love is when someone looks at an imperfect person and still loves them for all their flaws.

    I hearted both shops =D
