Enchanted Adornments Giveaway No. 5 BUTTERFLIES

Cynthia Thornton, of Green Girl Studios, has written an amazing book called Enchanted Adornments: Creating Mixed-Media Jewelry with Metal, Clay, Wire, Resin & More, and it will be released on November 1, 2009!

I am really excited about the release of this book because Cynthia and her family, are all amazingly talented and this book will totally rock the hizzouse. But not only that, I contributed a piece of jewelry for the Gallery section of the book, and am really super excited for all of you to see it!


The Green Girl Studios team, graciously donated 8 small packages of beads to be randomly given away, in honor of the big book release, to my little blog! How cool is that!


This week will be the first of the 8 givaways. This FIFTH package of beads contains 5 pewter components (clasp, button, charms, bead, and pendant), all in the BUTTERFLY THEME!

  4. I read about you in a beading magazine. Which one? I don't really remember. I went to your Etsy Store and loved the things you make. I especially like the way you promote your fellow Estsians and list where you get some of your components for the lovely pieces you create. Your blog was listed there. I follow it every morning with my coffee before work. A happy start to my day. Hope you're having fun in London.

  16. Hi Lorelei,
    I think that I had a lucky accident and just happened upon your blog. It has been a daily ritual ever since, I connect to many other blogs via your blog.
    What kept me coming back was all the great suppliers you use, I have purchased items from summers studio, green girl, round rabbit, patina queen, all because of you.

  18. I found your blog through Artbeadscene which I found through Heather's blog. I've been reading blogs on and off for the last couple years. Recently though I hadn't done much with mine until I ran into Andrew at Beadfest and we had our bird challenge. Now I've been updating and reading blogs like a fiend.

  21. Gee, I can't remember where I found your link - probably blognetting or from one of the bead mags. You're on my daily blog list so that's how I know about the giveaway.

    Have fun in London - hope you can get to Portabello Road or Covent Garden to hunt for jewelry parts.

  22. I found your blog by doing a google search for beading blogs. sounds lame, but your style was so amazing that you were the first blog I added to my blogger list, which I check compulsively throughout the day. the beading links each week lead me to several other blogs which I now also follow.

    keep up the great work :)

  32. I linked to your blog from someone else, and I just really liked what you had to say about what you do, so I've been following ever since. The give-aways are a great bonus, but I'd follow your blog without the gifts, you're just interesting!

    ReplyDelete

  34. I've been a "stalker" of yours for quite a while. I first learned of your blog when I noticed you are like in every beading magazine there is. I remember pointing out to my hubby, "Here she is again! She's in every magazine." Needless to say, I can see why you are so popular. I love the earthiness to your little works of art.

    I found your blog via Cynthia Thorntons Enchanted Adornments fan page on Facebook - she posted about your blog so I toddled along for a peep. I'll definitely repost this giveaway in my blog sidebar, thank you for the chance to win.

  41. How did you hear about my blog? I have been following your blog for a few months now - probably found in on either Marcia DeCoster's or Fab Fibers, or someone else equally beady! How did you find out about this giveaway? Saw the blurb that you were doing it on Facebook. Did someone recommend it? Nope. See above.... Are you a regular blog reader? Almost every day. It takes time out of bead time-but I love it!

    ReplyDelete

  45. I probably heard about your blog from your Etsy shops - your bead destash shop was one of the first bead suppliers I bought from when I started beading! (: I read regularly last year, but I'm just getting back into the grove of things this year.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hmmm, how did I come across your blog? Maybe it was through the Art Bead Scene or a link from another artist's blog....can't remember for sure. But I do visit your blog every day that I can. It's very inspiring!

Let's see...Julia at Drawn to the Sea suggested I visit Jewelry of Distinction, where I saw your blog listed in the sidebar...It was a long trip, but I'm so glad to have arrived at such a lovely destination. Took time to enter your giveaway and now I'm going back to snoop around a bit. Your blog is beautiful!

  61. I found you through Heather which lead me to the Art Bead Scene which is followed by daily visits to your blog! I love Green Girl Studio beads. The butterfly collection is beautiful.

  62. Heard about your blog from Kerry at Kab's creative concepts. I love to see all the fun ways you put things together, it inspires me. Thanks for sharing all your ideas with your followers. Thanks also for the chance to win, or hope to, such fun beads.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I found your blog through a link from the art bead scene blog. I have time in the summer to surf sites and this is how it happened. I enjoy reading your blog and seeing what new pieces you have made - and you post regularly, so this keeps me coming back.

    I hope you're having fun in London!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I also found your blog through Marcia DeCoster's site; I'm a regular reader of her blog and plan to add yours as well. I infrequently read a few quilting and dollmaking blogs in addition to the beading ones, and find them all fascinating; I tend to get lost in them and have to limit my exposure! I heard about your giveaway by visiting your site, and the Green Girl booth at Bead & Button is one I never miss, so my attention was caught instantly! Have fun in London and travel safely!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Not sure how I found your blog, it was probably a link from another blog. I am a regular reader of your blog and an admirer of your work.

  66. I can't remember how I found you - through some linkage of polymer clay lovers, I am sure! But I am a faithful follower, even without the lovely blog candy, just because I like your work.

I don't visit everyday, but do read back when I'm here. I admire your fountain of creativity and your ability to share meaningful information each day. Free goodies would just be a bonus!
