"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Adorable Necklace Give Away!

via her etsy shop!
I am so excited to announce that Sarah Jane Nelson, who asked the last Dear Struggling Actress question,  would love to give one of my lucky readers her Theater Nerd Necklace!

This beautiful 3/4 sterling silver disc has an 18" long chain, and is great for you or someone you love.

If the person you love is me, I'll be very happy to take it!

It's super easy to enter the drawing - Just visit her Etsy shop, and comment below with what your favorite things are. She makes them all!

She has a great shop and you can bookmark (or Pin!)  her site to refer back to for birthdays and holidays. So many things would make lovely gifts for actors.

The winner will be picked by random on Monday.

And - Also Very Cool, Sarah Jane is offering ALL my lovely readers (you guys!) a discount for all her adorable trinkets. During checkout, enter code ACTORGIFTS10 and you'll receive 10% off!

All because we love you.



  1. Love the I Pick You necklace :)

  2. I LOVE the theatre nerd necklace!!!!! So me!!! =))

  3. Oh no, I'm an Etsy junky as it is!

    Total sucker for the owl charm

  4. The owl charm is lovely, as is the butterfly-change necklace. The theatre nerd necklace is beautiful but I prefer the term theatre dork personally! :)

  5. My favorite is the owl charm. Adorable!

  6. I love the sterling silver eiffel tower necklace. Super cute.

  7. I love the theater nerd and puzzle piece necklaces -- I would wear them all the time!

  8. I love the theatre necklace! Sooooo cute <3

    It reminds me of a pin someone gave me after a production once. I still have it in it's case/wrap thingy (?).

  9. I can think of several for whom that Theatre Nerd necklace would make a great gift. I also like the owl, the unicorn, and all of the quote cards that add meaning to the charms. (Not sure which I'd pick for my daughter, though.)

  10. I have no idea how to choose! Can I say everything is my favorite? Even if it doesn't make sense?

  11. This is so freakin' cute!!! And I'm obsessed with her guitar pick necklaces in her Etsy shop, which are super beyond adorable. (<--- yes, that's an actual phrase.)


  12. I like the turtle one and the theatre nerd one. Awesome!


Play nice.
