Birthday Week Book Giveaway #3, and the Winner Announced

I picked a random winner out of the 79 comments posted for this giveaway! The winner of Metalworking 101 for Beaders by Candie Cooper is.....
Nicki of Nicki's Reef!!! Yippeeeeee! Congratulations!!

Contact me and I'll need your address to send your awesome book!

 

Two techniques that I have always been enamored with are Chainmaille and Beadwork. Why not combine them in designs! Cindy Thomas Pankopf shows you how in this nice soft cover technique book. 25 different projects highlight these two stunning designs in rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelet forms. Step by Step instructions are clear and the diagrams are readable and easy to understand. A great book to look through from inspiration! I love the alternative designs for each project too, gives you a whole new perspective on altering the basic technique.
All you have to do is Leave a Comment on this post, and tell me
How you found out about this week of giveaways, and would you pass the word along if possible?

I will pick a random winner Tomorrow, Thursday May 20, around 4pm.
I will announce the winner and also tell you about the next book giveaway!!

  2. Must be some mistake? How can I be first to leave a comment? Anyway, glad you had a great birthday with lots of great presents and truly sorry to hear about your friend. I heard about the week of giveaways because I am a loyal reader of your blog. However, I am ridiculously challenged when it comes to blogging, facebooking , etc. so as much as I would like to pass the word along by technology, it will have to be by pony express or something like that.

  4. I read your blog all the time - I am following you too. Unfortunately blogger has been acting up these past days, and I do not get the updates of your posts delivered to my dashboard, so there are small delays right now. I really need to fix this.

    With happy smiles,

  6. Your blog shows up on my RSS feed every time you update - so this was one of many giveaways that I've been pleasantly surprised to see advertised. :P I have no problem passing the word along, but it would have to be on a more public platform... I don't have any crafty friends, so the best I could do is stick out a public tweet and hope someone was benefited by it.

  7. I read your blog on a regular basis, but blogger didn't showed me your updates - strange! But luckily Nicki blogged about your giveaway so I stepped by. regards Stefanie

  12. Hi-I have your blog in my rss feeder. I just finished my first chainmail necklace about an hour ago byzantine in sterling and gold fill. I mostly do beading- and this book looks like it would be a great place to start learning how to combine the two!

    I read your facebook and blog almost daily. Love your tutorials. I can tell you really enjoy yourself with the jewelry. Tuff choice by the way with choosing only one of your Bead Starr entries, but I'll have to vote the heart one.

  19. I saw your time to vote and came to check out your entry/ies. I love the look of Chainmaille but have never seen it mixed with beads.

    I am jumping up and down saying PICK ME!

    (bth: love the heart design)

  24. I found out about the giveaways as I follow your blog. And, yes, I do spread the word via my blogs or forums if the giver would like that and it fits said places.

    (And this book is one I've seen but forgot to add to my oh-so-long bead book wishlist.)

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
