$20 Giftcard Giveaway!

What would you buy from Artbeads.com if you had an extra $20 to spend? Hmm...the possibilities are endless!

Just leave a comment of any kind on this post and I will pick a random winner next Thursday (Thanksgiving Day)!

I wanted to use this holiday to give thanks to all of you who stop by and offer encouraging words and cool ideas!! I AM SO THANKFUL to have "met" you!!

When I first began blogging, I was very surprised at the amazing world-wide community of beaders who blog! I am still in awe of all the wonderfully giving individuals I have met over the last couple of years and am happy to be a part of things!

In addition to the $20 gift card for the winner, below is a 10% off promotional code for any and all customers good through 12/31/09. Shipping is free in the US and $1.00 to Canada! Nice....

Code: SCF10P-ARTBEADS-0424

Now, if you need ideas for what to buy with $20 from Artbeads, how about some gorgeous Cubic Zirconias?!!

I'll be sharing some that I selected over the next few days, but the decision is yours! :)

I just started blogging recently and am surprised by the wonderful people I've met through my blog. It's led me to meet people like you and other beaders. I'm grateful for the advice, the fun, and thoughts shared!

I too am amazed(& sometimes a little intimidated) by all the fabulous beader/bloggers out there.It has been a great find.

nina said...

I love blogs! So much inspiration to be found. I just started 'accumulating' beading blogs this year and I love the stuff that I see! Looking forward to the debut of your book... hope to see some sneak peeks!

Davinia said...

I often ask myself what did I ever do with myself before blogging sucked me into it's vortex. (probably a lot more housework if the truth is known). Sometimes if the power goes out and I can't get onto the computer I feel as if I've been cut off from the world. Pitiful really! But it's such fun and you meet amazing people and discover unbelievable creativity. The gift card?....well I'd have to spend it on clasps. They're a bit thin on the ground in my part of the world, gorgeous unusual ones are anyway.

Lampwork Jewelry by Wendy said...

I love blogging,and beads! Beading is like breathing....I HAVE TO! It can be the most calming, relaxing,frustrating,nerve racking thing to do. The satisfaction of a finished design is intoxicating. There is nothing in the world like getting new supplies!

Watercolors by Susan Roper said...

I am addicted to painting, beading and blogging, not necessarily in that order! I agree with Davinia that my house bears the brunt of these passions in that it gets neglected a bit more these days! But, the beads await!

I would love some of the zirconia beads and eyepins as I am making more rings and earrings now than before.

Marjorie said...

This is such a helpful and informative blog - and now a great giveaway, too! Kudos!

Lacey said...

I managed to accidentally stumble across your blog, but I'm so glad I did. You have lots of information and inspiration for those of us that sometimes need a little push. Thanks for doing what you do.

Two of my favorites in one blog, how about that? Your blog and Artbeads! Have been a regular at Artbeads for many years, and I becoming a regular reader of your blog! Thank you, I have a lot to learn...

coolmoon said...

I attempted to stop blogging a few weeks ago. Couldn't do it. It's a sort of journaling process for me, and I guess I don't care that so few people are reading. Bloggers and beaders unite!

Elizabeth said...

Can't wait to see your book! I would go $20 crazy with the gift card. I love all beads. Have a great holiday!

Thanks for dropping by my blog today. I have always admired you for being able to find a bead a day. Literally. You are amazing! I have never told you that, but wanted to take the opportunity to do it now, (and not just because of the giveaway!) :)

Pearl and Pebble said...

It is amazing the people you meet! And I must say that as a newbie to the blogging world, you have been very sweet, gracious and friendly! I look forward to your daily ideas, projects, and finds. Thank you:) And I can't wait to see your book!!!!

Kristin said...

Hi! I am a stamper and scrapbooker, but my mom loves beading so I thought I'd see if I can find some cool beading blogs for her. Stumbled upon yours- noticed you are in OHio too. Fun! Anyway, posting a comment so I can maybe win her a giftcard... or take up a new hobby myself. :)

Kallie said...

Love beading, love your blog. I could definitely do some damage with the gift card!

Shelly said...

I love shopping for my beads but shopping for my beads for free sounds even better. I would buy something that I have not worked with yet. I think that would be reat fun!!! Thanks for the chance. Shelly

Cindy Lietz, Polymer Clay Tutor said...

I know exactly what I would get if I won. I'd get some of those new copper and pewter frames to fill with polymer clay. Probably a little silver wire or a couple of small tools as well!

Laura said...

They have such great things, so there are always things I want from there! You are so generous having these giveaways! Thanks

MaryJane Robbins said...

I found your blog through a "top bead blogs" search, and I can see why it was on the list. Very nicely written, with lots of links, etc.

The gift card would come in handy, I'd let my 15 year old pick out some special beads for herself.She's very generous and makes so many things for friends, I'd love to see her make something special for herself.

quiltingjewel39 said...

Everyone is so right - I have"met" wonderful people and gotten so many ideas. I am excited for you and your new book-can't wait to see it. I would use the certificate for beads for Christmas presents I am making. Thank you for the chance.

Good Morning!
Your blog is the 2nd one I visit every morning and you never fail to bring a bit of sparkle to my day. REALLY looking forward to your book! What would I order from Artbeads? Black seeds 11 and 15s, black Delicas 11 & small cubes. Crystals & pearls too. Run out of the basics so quickly!

Do Be Do Bead Do said...

You are so right about the wonderful bead bloggers and this community. I know first hand, because you are one of those wonderful people that I've met! The talent among the bead bloggers that I follow is amazing and the willingness to share goes beyond what I've ever experienced.

P.S. My fingers are crossed for this giftcard!

Ooh the hill tribe beads look fantastic. What an uplifting post to read.

Melody Marie Murray said...

I love beading. I think I love blogging, but it takes more effort to blog than to bead for me. I'm currently documenting my adventures in bead embroidery- doing step by step blog posts as I go.

Congratulations Kristin! You are the winner of the Artbeads.com gift card! :)
