How incredibly much my life has changed over that time period. More major losses than I would've ever dreamed possible, but also an incredible amount of personal growth and the acquisition of a lot of great new friends.
So, to honor all of that, I'm having a big giveaway!
Imagine that there are pictures of awesome beads here - I have been sick with the most wretched cold for the last few days and didn't get the photos taken. To spark your imagination, I'll just drop a few names: Round Rabbit, Lisa Peters, Jade Scott, BeResinable, etc. Clay, resin, lampwork and more!
**7/22/10 - Edited to add photos:
Happened to have a few of the photos in my files - will get more of the prize photos up as soon as I'm feeling better.**
**Edited 7/26/10 to add EVEN MORE PHOTOS!
And that's STILL not everything that's going in the prize package!! You NEED to enter this contest if you haven't already - BEADS GALORE!!**
And how do you enter to win, you ask? Well, I'll tell ya! Leave a comment telling me about the following:
1. How/why did you get into blogging?
2. How many blogs do you usually visit on a daily basis?
3. Are you a frequent commenter or a lurker?
4. If you leave comments - do you do so on every blog you visit or only when you particularly have something to say?
Everyone who leaves a comment will get one entry in the giveaway.
To get a second entry, post about the giveaway on your blog/facebook/twitter and leave a comment here with the link to your post.
Contest officially ends at midnight, Pacific time, on Tuesday, July 27th.
On Wednesday, July 28th, I'll randomly draw a winner and announce that here on the blog.
I'm looking forward to reading all the comments - and, since I'm only about 5 or so followers away from the big 200 mark, I may have a special prize for that 200th follower whoever he or she turns out to be.
All right - go forth and spread the giveaway news! Pics coming later as soon as my fever breaks. I'm off in search of my blankie and a good cold medicine-induced coma.
P.S. I promise all beads in the prize package will have been de-germified before I send them out!
