6th Photo Game & Upcoming Blogmania Giveaway

Instead of a weekly jewelry project, I wanted to use today's post to share a "game" as well as an upcoming giveaway event called "Blogmania!"

I had a recent online visit from our friend Mortira from the Inspirational Beading blog who invited me to play the 6th Photo Game.

Mortira received the challenge from Cindy Caraway of Artful Living on the Bluff who wrote, "the fun begins when you search through your earliest blog posts and find the sixth photo that you ever uploaded to share with your readers. The next task is to critique your own photo, and explain what you would do differently, then pass on the challenge to ten bloggers."

Rather than pass it along to specific readers, I wanted to share it with everyone looking for something fun and challenging to do today.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on how far you have come from your 6th blog photo! As for me...

My 6th photo was this vitrail ab swarovski cube I posted on 2/10/08 and I have to say the caption still represents my feelings about this great bead!!! :)

The title of the post is "Bead Love" if that gives you any insight! Now, above is the original photo AND an updated version that I just cropped and brightened up a bit....MUCH BETTER! Thanks a bunch for sharing Mortira!!

The EVENT I want to mention was shared with me by Dawn Doucette of Designs by Dawn Marie. I'm so glad she provided this information because there was just one day left to get registered.

I am now going to be part of the BLOGMANIA event taking place for just one day on April 30, 2010.

I hope you will stop by and visit me as well as the other 100+ bloggers that will be mentioned. Each of these bloggers will have something free up for grabs for those leaving comments on their blog THAT DAY only!

I will be giving away my book, A Bead in Time, as well as a grab-bag of miscellaneous beads and completed jewelry pieces. :) HOW FUN!! I can't wait!!

I hope you are having a great weekend, we are heading for the drive-in shortly and have our fingers crossed the rain will just pass right over! So far, so good! :)

I'm so excited you are participating Lisa! This is going to be the blogging event of the year! I can't imagine a better way to get to know other bloggers and maybe win some free stuff! :)

Whomever wins your book will absolutely love it! I know I've mentioned it before, but for jewelry artists looking for inspiration, they can definitely gain it from sharing your inspirations!

Can't wait until the 30th! I've started a Facebook event open to everybody for anyone that wants to join us and win some really great prizes!

Happy Movie-ing! Hope it stays dry!


P.S. Love your before & after picture of the crystal... I love crystals no matter how the picture was taken! :o)
