The Not-So-Famous Missed Anniversary Bead Giveawy

While writing yesterday's blog post, I searched my blog to link to a previous topic. I was a bit shocked when a post from 2005 appeared.


I've been standing on this virtual corner of a crowded internet hollering at anyone who walked by since 2005?

You'd think I'd be hoarse by now.

I'm nothing if not tenacious.

It also means I've missed an anniversary. In honor of my missed anniversary, I'm going to giveaway a bunch of beads.

I'm not the world's best time manager which means, I've made some lovely beads that just never made it to my website to sell. Some beads have just been hanging out waiting to go to a good home.

Sooo, if you'd like to be entered in the drawing to receive these goodies for free, please leave a comment on my blog.

If you'd like to increase your chance to win the giveaway, I'll enter your name again if you do the following:

2. Blog about my giveaway on your blog with a link to this post and come back and leave me a comment saying you blogged about it and include your blog link in the comment. (You have my permission to snag the bead pictures from this post)

Blog about it before Monday, September 20th because I'll be choosing a winner of the Missed Anniversary Bead Giveaway on Tuesday September 21st, one week from today.

Good luck!

Just stumbled across your blog, despite being a fan of your work for YEARS! How did that happen?

Congrats on the milestone. Here's to five more.

Well, happy belated anniversary to you. :)

I love stopping by here to see what's going on and to ogle pretty beads and things. Thanks for the giveaway.

skygrazer/Christy said...

What a wonderful assortment. I especially like that blue and black urn shaped bead with the large opening in the middle. Just a great shape/color combo, and the small blue spiral really makes it.


Amy F said...

Congrats! I'd love to win!

TesoriTrovati said...

Well congrats on those five years. That is quite an accomplishment. Some weeks I am not sure that another topic will bore its way into my brain but then it appears as if by magic. And the fact that you have some loyal followers is a testament to how wonderful this place is. So go on shouting on the street corner. I'll be here.

Enjoy the day!

First congrats on 5 yrs. I have a pr of earrings I made from your beads that I love( they match a dress of mine so well it's like you made them for the dress). I also just gave a friend some earrings I made from your beads & she loved them. I can't be as generous w/ the goddess beads of yours that I have, I love them too much,(although I did let one go for the last bead soup).

Terry Biz said...

I would LOVE a chance for some of these beads! They're beautiful! Thank you - and congrats on the anniversary!
