7 Days of Giveaways Day 7 and Final Day

Comments are now closed.


ATTENTION:  RENEE C! Contact me, you won yesterday!



Welcome to the final day of the week of giveaways! What a fun we've had eh?? Pretty cool prizes and great comments from everyone! It was a total blast putting this together, and I will certainly do this again! You probably noticed the blog is different yet again. Unfortunately, I had to change the format back because a lot of people were having trouble leaving comments. I think the issue was that this format needs a large about of Flash and if you didn't have the most updated version, there were issues. Also, there was no way I could prominently display my sponsor's ads, so we're back to this style. I may be tweaking it a bit more just to get a nice "lorelei" feel to an otherwise, pretty common template. Just want to say thanks for your patience through this transition stage!


Today we have 4 giveaways for you. For some reason, I ended up with 15 gifts to giveaway so to make it even, I'll also be donating a prize today.


PLEASE be sure to come back this evening. If you've won, you have until morning to get me your mailing address, or I will choose a new winner for your prize. I don't have time to hunt every winner down so please remember to come back to see if you've won!

Giveaway #13


 Malin de Koning has donated some of her handmade beaded beads. Malin did a great video tutorial not too long ago about how she makes these beautifully intricate beads. I just love her color combinations and have used a few of her beads in my work and adore them! You can find more of her beads at her Etsy store! I know the winner will be so pleased with these!! The winner will receive all 5 beads shown here!
 





Giveaway #14

Elaine Ray has donated a baggie full of her little ceramic beads! These are just darling, all in a pretty Spring color palette!  Elaine lives and works in Raleigh N.C. and sells her beads at Ornamentea.  You can find a wide array of different shapes and colors on their website.  The winner of this giveaway will receive all beads shown here!




Giveaway #15
Heather Davis of Blissful Garden Beads, has donated the beads you see here. She has sent a mixture of handmade ceramic components in blues and teals, and 2 pairs of her signature floral lampwork glass beads. Heather works in Vancouver, Washington.  You can find more of her work here.



Giveaway #16

To make it even, cuz I'm a freak like that, I have decided to also donate some beads for the last giveaway!  I chose a selection from my own bead stash. The winner will receive all beads shown here! I chose several of my favorite bead artisans. See the descriptions below.


Pewter heart: Lynn Davis
Ceramic lentils: Golem Studios
Ceramic leaf toggle: Mary Harding
Ceramic Tube: Lisa Peters Art
Resin and Copper Love Letter: Jade Scott
Pewter buttons- Mamacita Beadworks
Ceramic Dragonfly: Jean Christen (ONLINE store coming SOON!)

    As for the layout, I like this one fine :) The other was alright but ... eh *shrug* If you're just bored with and want a new look, maybe you should check out some of the web designers from the beading groups you're in and see about investing in a custom template ;)
