New Christmas Goodies!

Thanksgiving passed in a blur and it was fun, but a little bittersweet spending the holiday with my husband's family and missing the fun banter with his Dad…and it was nice sharing more stories of him around the dinner table as we gave thanks for all our blessings this year.

The day after, my husband and I even ventured out into the Black Friday shopping frenzy—and if you know us, you know that is NOT something either one of us have ever wanted to try before!! LOL But there were a few things we wanted to pick up if we could and so we drove out to a few stores at 9 am in the morning. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the ones we went to didn't have any of those crazy crowds where everyone is practically foaming at the mouth to get their special deals. We even had time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast at a nearby restaurant to celebrate getting our "finds" so succesfully and relatively stress-free! :-D

Looking ahead to my favorite time of the year, I've also been inspired to make some new Christmas beads. They've been well received on my Facebook fan page and Etsy shop, and I have a few more in the works that I'll be sharing soon!

1,000+ Fans Celebration!

Edited to add: CONGRATULATIONS! to Libbi Shorts of Mt. Baldy Glassworks for being the lucky winner of my random drawing for this Acorn Necklace!! Thanks to everyone who participated and for being such great Fans! *Ü*

Whooohooooo! It's time for another Fan Giveaway!! I meant to do it when I reached 1,000 Fans on my Facebook Fan Page, but I've been so crazy busy this year—I just now realized that milestone had come and gone before I even had a chance to celebrate?!

But "better late than never," right? LOL I took a poll earlier and requests for one of my Acorns came in first place, with Finished Jewelry coming in second, so I thought it would be fun to combine the two and hopefully, get a lot of people excited to enter?!

In appreciation for everyone who helped me reach over 1,300 Fans to date and in honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I'm giving away one of my new Acorn Necklaces to one lucky winner! It features one of my green-blue glass and natural acorn cap pendants on an antique copper ball chain, or I can make an Acorn in a different color of your choice too.
You have up to 3 separate chances to enter to win this necklace:
1) "LIKE" my Fan Page by visiting it HERE.
But please don't like my Page just for this Giveaway and then "unlike" me after it's over—it breaks my heart every time that happens! If you already liked my Fan Page before, you can give me a suggestion for a new bead design you'd like to see me make. ;-)

2) and/or SHARE this Giveaway with a LINK back to this post on your own blog or Fan Page.

3) and/or "HEART" my Etsy shop by clicking on the "Favorite" button in the upper right corner of my shop page HERE. If you have already hearted my shop, post a link here to one of your favorite items in my shop and tell me why you like it.

For any of the above actions and to increase your chances of winning, leave a maximum of 3 separate comments here after this post saying which one(s) you did, i.e. one comment for liking my fan page, another comment for hearting my Etsy shop. And please make sure to also give me your name and a good way to contact you if you are the winner on at least one of your entries.

Deadline to enter is November 20, 2012 by 5 pm. 
I will pick a winner later in the evening by a random drawing of names. Please note this giveaway is in no affiliated with Facebook or any of its subsidiaries and I am solely responsible for the management of this event and distribution of all prizes.

Good luck and I am SO thankful for your continued support and encouragement! *Ü*
