Hi, and welcome to my first ever GIVEAWAY! I wish to celebrate 2 things with this giveaway.
Firstly, I just got my 50th follower of my blog! I can't believe I have so many followers. Thank you all so much for being interested in what I have to say and do. I am really really honoured! You are all people I admire and look up to.
Secondly, I wish to celebrate my birthday which is on Wednesday the 30th of June. I get so much from all of you in the beading community and blog-o-sphere, and I wish to give something back aswell.
I have been thinking about this giveaway for some time now. What kind of theme should I have? I believe I couldn't come up with anything exciting or odd enough. So that's what I am doing, I have put together a soup of odd beads, one of each. They all come from my own bead stash. It is a mixture of high and low, big and small, cheap and expensive. Gemstones (some unusual ones like Gaspeite), coral, sugar beads, clay, porcelein, shell, brass, copper, wood, carved acrylic, metalized acrylic, glass, ceramic, lampwork, resin, charms, pendants, findings, trade beads, african, indian, german, czech, indonesian, american, unusual beads, common beads, patterned, plain, figures, geometric ... There are no art beads though, coz I don't want to give the ones I have away... and there are other beads of mine I haven't put in there, simply coz I have only very few of them. No seed beads and very few fire-polish. It is a kind of soup I would like to recieve myself. Just a crazy mix of this and that! I hope you feel the same way and want to participate in the competition.
So what do you need to do to have a chance to win? I wished to try something different, so ...
1. You have to be a follower of my blog, so if you are not yet sign up now!
2. Write a comment on this post, AND ...
3. ... give me a beading tip in that comment. Something you believe would be useful for ME. Just anything - a great shop, a clever technique, a fun class, a book I should look at, some beautiful beads I should discover, tools, tips on blogging ... Please surprise me - it is my birthday after all!
I will be compiling a list of the ten top tips. Top ten for ME that is! And I will present that list here on my blog. The person who gave me tip number ONE will be the winner of the giveaway. It is all very subjective, isn't it.
The last day for leaving a comment and have a chance to win is on Wednesday the 7th of July (one week after my birthday). And I will present the list and the winner on Thursday the 8th of July.
Please participate, it would mean a lot to me.
