Giveaway from Monkey's 'N Munchkins (this giveaway is now closed)

Are you one of those mom's that wonder how in the world a parent could lose their child somewhere? Do you think you are over-protective and it couldn't happen to you? Are you prepared in case it does happen to you?

I am a mom that hangs on tight to my kids everywhere we go. I am a tad bit over-protective at times but it happened to us. We were at a county fair and we had several people with us and we looked around and our 4 year old daughter was gone. We couldn't find her anywhere and it was the scariest 10 minutes of our lives. Luckily someone had seen a teen take her to the office so we found her. My daughter was too scared though to tell them our names or anything. That next day I went on the search for something for my children to wear when we go places like that with our phone number on in case they get lost.

A couple weeks ago when I was searching Etsy for wonderful things I found Monkey's 'N Munchkins and she makes these bracelets for little girls with their phone number on them in case they get lost. I contacted them right away because I know first hand how important it is to have your phone number on your child. They sent me a bracelet just like the one below (I had her put my cell phone number on it) and it is sooooo cute and it makes this momma feel good to know my child is wearing something with my number on it.

I asked Monkey's 'N Munchkins some questions and this is what they had to say:

How long has your Etsy shop been open? Monkeys 'N Munchkins on Etsy has been open since October of 2009. I taught myself to make jewelry about 7 years ago and tried going on my own for a number of years. Opening a shop on Etsy was like a shot of adrenaline to my business and I wish I had done it years ago!
You shop is any little girls dream! How did you start making children's jewelry? I had my daughter (in 2005)and started making children's jewelry maybe a year or so later. I wanted to be able to accessorize her holiday outfits, and once I saw the really cute and affordable beads that are perfect for children's jewelry I was hooked! My big thing is that adults may love to see expensive items in miniature (like pearls, gold, Swarovski crystals, etc.)--and I do use those materials--but kids want jewelry they can throw on by themselves and not be yelled at for breaking or losing it! Kids can wear my jewelry in a mud puddle, get it hosed off, and wear it again the next day.
I found your shop because of your phone number bracelet, can you tell us what this is for? I started making the phone number bracelets when another Etsian put out an open request to have some made for her. I looked around Etsy and didn't find too many options, so I figured this is an important accessory and I needed to start making some cute versions! My kids are also at the age (4 & 2) where I know they could take off in a crowd at any second and they wouldn't really know how to find me. The phone number bracelets give parents and caregivers peace of mind, but the best part is the bracelets are so cute they can just be an everyday accessory. What is your favorite item in your shop? My favorite item changes every time I make something new! But my favorite large item is the Construction Zone Theme Giant Wall Letter (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=34222035). You can't even believe how awesome it is in person. As for small items, my everlasting favorite has to be the Little Girls' Personalized Bracelet with Hearts and Silver Plated Components (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=38608200). This was the first bracelet design I made for my daughter (its original name is the Mia Bracelet, and I still call it that in my head), so it has a special place in my heart.
