Broadening my Blog-Horizons and More Give-aways.

Can we talk this morning? I have my morning coffee sitting on the kitchen table ready to have some friend-talk.

My blog is designed to be about glass and beadmaking. I've broadened a bit to include jewelry making but I've pretty much stayed away from mixing in personal stories. Starting now I'm going to include a little bit more about me along with the glass.

No, it's not going to turn into a confessional type blog. I will give you a little bit more about the artist behind the blog than I did before.

Why you ask? Because most of the blogs I like to read have a bit of the person's life included - like my new friend ceramic jewelry artist Nancy. I like her mix of everything. And the ever wonderful Margot Potter who writes about craft and life and the occasional feminist manifesto (which, of course, is ever empowering!)

I also realized I've been pretty stingy with the giveaways.

I'm gonna give away alot more stuff starting now.

My wedding anniversary is in July so in celebration, I'll be putting together some Beads 2 Go! boxes and posting them on my blog. Beads 2 Go! will include my handmade lampwork beads and other beads from my stash. I'll draw a winner on Saturday and post the winner. You'll need to check Saturday's post to find out if you've won. You'll need to check and send me the email.

Winners send me an email with your postal address and I'll send you the Beads 2 Go!

Easy Peasy.

A caveat - You'll need to check back to see if you've won. Since I won't have an email or postal address until you send it to me, I can't come looking for you. If you win and I don't hear from you within two (2) weeks from the date it is announced, the beads will be put back up for another giveaway.

Remember, if you're the winner on Saturday, just shoot me an email with your postal address and you'll get your free beads!

Great ideas Cindy! I enjoy reading about the creative process of all sorts of artists, and since I think we draw a lot of our inspiration from our own lives, it is interesting to find out how alike we are and where our other passions lead us! Sounds like a great giveaway to me!
Enjoy the day! (And the coffee!)

Sounds wonderful. Nice to have the personality of the artist to connect with the art whatever the medium.
