What We Need is a Bead GIVEAWAY!

Okay everyone, I've picked out some beads for you, so you will have to trust me...

It's time for the very first A Bead A Day "Secret" bead giveaway, yay!

I have decided this would be a great way to share my gratitude for the generosity bestowed upon me recently by the awesome folks at the Cousin Corporation.

I had the opportunity a couple weeks ago to select beads directly from Cousin company headquarters in Largo, Florida...

I know...seriously, the black and blue marks from where I was pinching myself are just now beginning to fade. :)

If you are interested in winning a surprise goody bag of beads, just leave a comment on this post by Thursday, March 21st. I'll announce the winner Friday, March 22nd.

There might be a sneak peak in the mean time, I haven't decided yet. You will definitely receive enough fun beads to complete a couple of jewelry projects.
