Millie Made Giveaway

I'm not one to normally do giveaways on this blog of mine. However, this giveaway is under special circumstances since the lady behind Millie Made is my lovely mama! My talented mother, Camille Keller, is one of the most creative human beings I know. She started a new hobby of making leather jewelry. After making so many new bracelets that she couldn't wear them all, I encouraged her to open a shop. Then voila, Mille Made was born.


Millie Made provides beautiful handmade jewelry at affordable prices. Most popular are the leather cuffs. Millie Made also believes in the power of words and what a positive impact words can have on our lives. That's why each bracelet includes a special word stamped into the leather.


I know it is a common thing for people to choose a "word of the year". This would be a perfect way to wear your word of 2014 with you at all times, to keep you motivated. Whatever the word (as long as it's not too lengthy) it can be stamped wherever you'd like on the bracelet. Wear your word on the front of the bracelet for all to see, or the word can be stamped on the inside of the bracelet so it can be your sacred secret.


One winner of a custom made leather cuff from Millie Made will be chosen at random. I will announce that winner on Friday, January 17th.

One entry per person. To be eligible to win, you:

1. MUST be a follower of A Little Bird Told Me
2. MUST like Millie Made on Facebook.
3. Leave a comment below with the word you would want on your bracelet and a reason why you chose that word.

Feel free to also comment on what you would want the bracelet to look like (design and colors), but I will for sure get that information (along with your wrist measurement) if you are our winner. Feel free to peruse through Millie Made's Etsy Shop for more ideas. She also makes the tiniest and most adorable newborn cuffs for both boys and girls.

Happy commenting! I wish everyone could win! These bracelets are beauties and my mom puts much love in each individual piece.


PS- Sorry for the Christmas decorations. Believe it or not, I FINALLY took our trees down this weekend.

  1. This year my word is TRUST. I've picked it because I need the reminder to trust that I will be okay. Trust that GOD has an amazing plan for me. Trust that everything will work out.

  2. Bless her heart! Your mother is so talented! I love all of them!
    I got engaged this past December and my fiance and I both decided that throughout our engagement we needed to focus more on having FAITH. Faith in each other, faith in our family and friends, faith in the tender mercies we receive each day, faith in the future and faith in the Lord. And so, my hope for 2014 is to remain and grow faithful!

  4. I can't tell if I'm following your blog or not. I think I am... I read it all the time. My word for 2014 is "evolve" I love this word because I feel like I have evolved so much in the last few years... From a easy going party girl, to scared alone pregnant girl, to hurt and untrusting to hopeful and determined to strong... And hopefully even more... I heard a quote once that says... "If you want a revolution their is only one solution.... EVOLVE" love this jewelry! It would be fun to order a little sized one for my baby... Since I love matching with her and because she is the reason I evolved

    1. I thought I responded this on there. If I were to get matching ones for me and Boston I would love them to say "my sunshine" on them. I have sang that to her since I was pregnant with her and she sings it with me now. It's our favorite for when we are having rough days.

  5. I would love to win! These bracelets look so cute!!
    I would choose the word 'Be', because I am learning to embrace living in the moment; simply being. that is also one of my goals for this year. What a great daily wearable reminder a bracelet would be!

  6. I think my word for the year is Happiness. I really want to try to be happier with myself, my kids and my hubby. I love your blog and your mom is amazing. I love her happy smiles she gives me every Sunday!

  7. My word for the year is gratitude. This year I am trying to be more grateful for the things I do have instead focusing on what I want. I feel like we get so wrapped up in the craziness of life that we forget to step back and look at all of the amazing things we have and that we have been blessed with.

    I love your blog it's darling!

  8. I would put the phrase "Go For It" on my bracelet. I've just gotten back into school and moved to a new apartment. Everything is new and I need to just go for it! Take risks! Try something new!

  9. What a cool giveaway, your mom is awesome! I would do the initials of my kids on the bracelet which are E-M-M. Nothing means more to me than them and I can't think of a cuter way to display it! :)
