giveaway anyone?! or three? or fourteen?!

Who doesn't love a giveaway??? The thrill of seeing something new, the chance to get it free . . .

I hit my 250th sale last night, whoohoo! So I'll be hosting a giveaway here, as promised! More on that in a second.
The Bead Art Originals Team is having 12 days of Giveaways! Yay! You can enter to win each gift, but be sure to keep checking back so you don't miss one.

1st up, some major coolness, a 3D beadwoven necklace, from SmadarsTreasure. The winner will be drawn tomorrow! Go here to enter! And be sure to read the directions . . .

Up next! This fabulous crystal creation by MistyRidgeBeads! The drawing will be held Sunday, enter here to win!
A little break for my latest treasury: Pirate Rats and Windblown Manes
It's live so compliments, er, comments, are welcome!

Now as promised! A celebration giveaway! Half way to 500 sales, can you believe it?! Can you believe how many people out there have creations by yours truly? The mind boggles.
I've asked for suggestions here and gotten, sadly, no feedback. *tears up, pitifully*
Which just means I'm not really sure what to offer. How about this? It's a 250th sale celebration, so we'll go with $25 toward anything in my store. And I'll do the celebration drawing on December 6th.
What do you do to enter? Hmmm.
Visit my shop. Find whatever you think you'd wear the most, come back to this post and tell me what it is and how to contact you if your name is picked!
That's it, you're in!
Remember December 1st is yet another drawing, but that one's only for my newsletter subscribers! Subscribe on my blog (top, right hand corner) before the 1st!


  1. Congratulations on your landmark achievement! 250 sales is wonderful (and definitely only the beginning!).
    Your shop is fabulous, you have such a diverse line of jewelry and several price points so that everyone can shop there, even in this economy.
    I had a hard time deciding what I would wear the most. One of the more practical pairs of earrings? A beautiful necklace?
    In the end I chose a very un-simple piece. I would wear the heck out of the Hands Against Time beaded cuff bracelet (carefully of course). It is pure art, and art like that should not be saved for special occasions only, but worn with pride as often as possible.

    Congratulations once again, and best wishes this holiday shopping season and in the new year! Your talent has earned it.
