Giveaway Celebration!!!

Can you believe it?  I have reached 100 posts!  When I started this blog, October 31st of 2009, I had no idea what I would write about on a regular basis, if anyone would ever read what I had to say, or how long I would continue to do it.  So far it has been a great journey!  I have met so many wonderful people and made such good friends through the blog world.  It has been great for me because I don't get out much, and I have never been good at meeting people.  Maybe it's just that I don't put myself in situations to be able to meet new people.  I live a very sheltered life, even having gone through almost 2 years of severe agoraphobia where I barely even left my room let alone went out and spoke to someone.

I have so very much enjoyed writing, reading your comments, emailing you back and talking about things and then visiting your blogs and getting to know you through your posts.  I appreciate your friendships very much.  In return for your kindness, I would like to give away one of my pieces.  I thought about making something new, but all of you probably already know I am really short on funds, and I didn't want to skimp on anything.  I wanted to give away something special.  So what I have decided to do is take one of my cuffs out of my online shops and give it away to one of my readers for my 100th Post Celebration.  I am giving away one of my bead embroidered cuffs that I call "Drops of Honey".  It is one of my favorites.  I just love the shell discs.  The colors are so rich and creamy...they look just like nice big dollops of honey to me.  Here are some photos of it:
What do you think?  Do you like it?  It is made with an aluminum cuff base with microsuede on the inside.  It could be yours!  All you have to do is be (or become) a follower here on my blog and leave me a comment...make sure you tell me how to reach you in the event you are the winner.  If you'd like a 2nd chance to win, post this to your blog with a link to the post, and I'll even do a 3rd chance to win by sharing to your Facebook page (you'll have to friend me, too.)  Leave me a separate comment for each of your 3 ways to win so I can keep an easy count.  I will do a random number generator to pick the winner.

The deadline for entering my giveaway is going to be Saturday, April 2nd at midnight EST.  I will ship this anywhere, so everyone is welcome to enter.  I will announce the winner on Sunday, April 3rd.  I hope you like my giveaway, and I hope to see lots of entries to make my celebration a party.

Thank you again for making my blogging experience a great one!!!

Congratulations on your blogging milestone! I love this bracelet and brown is my favorite color, so I would be thrilled to win it! I have not yet done a cuff, but I keep seeing some beautifus like this on, and am thinking of giving it a try. You do such lovely work.

Hi Lisa, Congrats on your 100th post. I have always admired your bead embroidered cuffs. Let's see, I didn't win MegaMillions, so maybe I was meant to win the cuff instead. - Debbie

WOw, now you know I'd be so proud to have this luscious bit of honey on my arm. Congrats on 100posts.

greeniezona said...

You know, this is probably my favorite cuff of yours that I have seen. I would be so excited if I won!

Congratulations on your 100th post. I really enjoy reading your blog. I'm a beader, but with two kids at home, one still a toddler, I don't get much time to put beads to thread. I have to do most of my beading vicariously! Your blog has been an inspiration to me. :)

Congrats Lisa, and do I love it(?), of course! Just to have one chance to wear your beaded cuff bracelet is enough, I'm already a follower. You do beautiful, beautiful work!

Beth Avagliano said...

Whew! I'm so glad I'm not too late to get a chance to win one of your lovely pieces!!! I've been away from the computer for a bit and just got your mail.

100 posts? You go girl! As always, you inspire me. I haven't started a blog because I'm afraid to. What would I say? Who would want to read it? Could I keep it up?

But you haven't let the fear stop you. Pat yourself on the back! And give yourself a hug. (I would if I were there!)

I'm going to friend you on my husband's Facebook account. ;-) He is SO funny when I do that with my craft stuff! "Who is this? What are you doing? Do you know what my friends think???" But hey, think of his friends who will be exposed to your work... maybe they will buy some for their women!

Keep up the amazing work!

Hugs,
Beth
