I am on the Gypsy Caravan!!!!! I found a link the other day on another blog about One World One Heart. A world wide blog giveaway to connect bloggers from around the world who would otherwise never get a chance to meet. You can find out more by clicking the OWOH button, both on the top of this blog and on my page. Make sure to check out the blog link list as there are already over 300 participants all giving away great goodies. If you are not an active blogger, be sure to read the posts as some people require you to have an active blog to participate in their giveaway.
If you are not familiar, here is how it works. Leave me a comment on this post and THIS POST ONLY BY 11:59 PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME ON FEBRUARY 11TH, 2009! I will close comments at midnight. Make sure you leave me a way to contact you. If you have a blog, please link to that and if you do not, leave me your e-mail address in your comment. If I can't contact you, you can't win. I will use a random number genorator to select the winning comment number, post the winning comment and contact the winner sometime during the day of Feb 12.
The lucky winner will receive my "cotton candy" flat spiral bracelet done in 2 different sizes of white czech glass beads, the base white bead has a beautiful finish (you can see it in the second photo) that is brought to life by the size 15/0 pink seed beads.
I want to say a special thanks to Lisa "oceandreamer" Swifka for creating and organizing this event. You can find her blog and giveaway here
I hope many of you will come back and visit me in the near future, and be sure to visit my visitor's map on the side bar while you are here. I would love to see where everyone is from!
UPDATE: I am having so much fun and found some really cool blogs while I have been out surfing! I have even decided to add a second item to my giveaway so I will now be drawing two names!
This is a beaded name tag badge, made with seed beads, Czech fire polished white beads, polymer clay flower beads and moonstone for magic!
Edit to add third item!
I hit over 100 comments so this is the third item I will be offering in my drawing!
Ok so time got away from me and I hit 150 awhile ago but here it is, my fourth item!
These are purple glass woven earrings, the pattern can be found at Deborah Roberti's website, around the beading table. She is an amazing designer and very generous. This is one of my favorite free patterns of hers.
My goal is to add one item for every 50 comments and I will update with pictures as I get them made!
And if you haven't yet hopped on the gypsy caravan yet, there is still about a day to join the giveaway before Lisa stops adding names to the link. You will still have until Feb 11th to get your name in on some of these great giveaways! Just click the link at the top of this post! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon! Happy surfing!
Just another little edit note, thanks so much for everyone who has stopped by and left wonderful comments. I am looking forward to swinging by and spending more time at tons of the blogs that participated this year, especially those who visited me.
Good luck to all of you tonight! I will be posting my winner after I return from a job interview tomorrow.
