Ho‘omaika‘i–A Giveaway!

Lately, after Isaac goes to bed, I’ve been sitting down to create again – something I’ve really missed doing. I try to let go of the craziness in my mind and just allow my fingers to guide me through the process of creation.  It’s incredibly therapeutic.

These past 6+ months have been such a wild ride for me – teaching me life lessons I never realized I needed to learn. 

One of those lessons was that I have support in spaces I don’t realize.  Like here, through the blog.  Through my roughest patch, you have all offered me encouragement, love and kindness.  I’m not quite sure how to express to you all how much your presence has meant to me. 

Ho‘omaika‘i translates to gratitude, or to render thanks.  And I’ve created a few pieces of jewelry specifically with you all – my readers – in mind. 

Here are the three pieces I’ll be giving away – all hand-made with aloha on Maui. 

Neptune: Gorgeous simple fire agate gemstones surrounded by swarovski crystals.

Mango Drops: Swarovski crystals with coral jade briolettes.

Morning Light: Laina dangles with swarovski crystals, mother of pearl pieces and coral jade briolettes.

To enter, leave a comment telling us something you’re grateful for in this moment.

Three winners will be chosen at random and given a choice of earrings [you can all have Neptunes if you like!]. 

Giveaway ends Wednesday, January 16th at midnight Hawaii Time [which is different than Hawaiian Time Winking smile], and winners will be announced on the 17th. 

Good luck! 

If you’d like to work together to create one-of-a-kind jewelry for yourself or a loved one, please contact me at hoomaikaijewelry@gmail.com. 

Aloha Pumehana.

    Since I was just looking (in awe) @ the snowy mountains underneath the blue sunny sky, I’ve got to say I’m grateful for beautiful Mother nature and all her gifts! Gorgeous jewelry! 🙂

    Hi Haley: Although we’ve not yet met, I am your cousin by marriage. Holly is my first cousin. Just want to tell you that I am enjoyng your blog and learning all about Isaac. He is SO cute! Your jewelry is beautiful and I hope you are successful in selling those lovely pieces. Knowing the prices would be helpful. Keep that blog coming! Sheila

    When I first started blogging, someone said, “Oh, mummy bloggers are the WORST at criticising other mummy bloggers…”, but like you, I have found everyone to be nothing but supportive, caring and encouraging, from near and far.
    Lovely jewellery – such gorgeous colours. If you’ll post to NZ, then count me in! If not…I still think these are fantastic and I’ll still share what I’m grateful for right now: sunny days and two healthy boys x

    Hi Haley! I haven’t really published it yet, but you inspired me to start a blog here on wordpress! So that will be forthcoming… I love reading your blogs and seeing the pics of your family 🙂 Feels like I’m not missing a beat of life on Maui even though I’m here on Oahu. I’m grateful for my parents, as Isaac La’akea already is for you and Ben, and will realize and vocalize when he’s older 🙂 My mom hired a sitter for my sister (before I was born) and dropped my sister off in the little carrier thing for babies along with her diaper bag and bottles in the morning at the woman’s house–and I think it was 3 or 4 hours later?–came back only to find that the woman hadn’t even touched my sister. My sister was exactly where my mom had left her on a table, screaming her head off, clearly a mess from tears and drool and everything else. Diaper hadn’t been changed, bottles hadn’t been touched–my mother had a hard time forgiving herself for that one… Just thought I’d share this story with you. One day I’ll be going through what you’ve gone through (in my own way, of course) and I can’t wait to re-read your hapai blogs and these from the early stages. You’re a beautiful woman, mother, writer, and FRIEND 🙂 I love you and I hope to be able to visit soon! 🙂

    Right now I’m so grateful for the field I work in. I am always amazed with the stories that my friends tell me about places they’ve been and birds they’ve seen, and what mother nature still holds for me and my future children to explore.

  6. Kerstin Lock says:

    Beautiful jewelry Haley! I’m so glad you’ve gotten back into blogging on a regular basis, it’s so great to read about what’s going on in your life.
    I’m incredibly grateful to live in such a beautiful place with lots of opportunities to get outside, even if it rains a lot 🙂

    I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life, big and small. For the gorgeous puffy white clouds, for a car that runs so I can get to work, my job in Special Ed, for toilet paper and shampoo, OH! and laundry soap!! and for a beautiful healthy son who I adore.

    I am grateful for my husband and little girl. They bring me joy each and everyday. I am thankful for a really good friend I have met online. She is always there for me.

    Hey Beautiful,

    This is the first time I’ve ever commented on your blog, even though I’ve read every single post you’ve written and tried some of your recipes. I’m so glad to see you grow as a person and a mom on this blog. It’s a great way for me to connect with you and your family being so far away on the mainland.

    Today, I am grateful that i have a job that helps pay for student loans and allows me to try to do something positive in this world. ❤
