May Bead Trends Giveaway

*** This Giveaway is now closed. Please see my post announcing the winner! ***


OOPS! I can't believe I almost totally forgot to do this before the month ended?! The good news is that I was honored to be included in the May 2011 issue of Bead Trends magazine. The theme for this issue is "Botanical Inspirations" and you know how much that is so right up my alley! Here is the necklace they featured, including  lampwork beads that I created using rose murrini that I made myself—I love how they turned out looking just like real peonies:


Even more good news is that they sent me an extra copy and I thought it would be a great time to offer it as a Spring Giveaway! (Do I detect a rousing cyber chorus of "Hooray!!!"?) If you'd like a chance to get this wonderful new issue in your hot little hands, all you have to do it leave a comment after this post, and let me know what your favorite flower is. That's it—no other hoops to jump through to qualify! Of course, if you feel like adding my blog to your Follower list, or "liking" my Facebook fan page, that would be wonderful as well! ;-D

*** You have until this Monday, May 30th to enter. I will draw the winning name by Random Number Generator on Tuesday, May 31st and announce the winner. ***

Even better news than this?! You can also get a second chance to win this prize! The Fire Divas have a special eBay auction HERE this week on a collection of their beads and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Beads of Courage organization (please see my previous post for more info). If you would like to bid on this auction, or send a monetary or bead donation directly to them, you can leave another comment letting me know you did so. (I feel another "Yay!" coming on, people!)

I hope you all have a special Memorial Day weekend too! *Ü*
