Christmas Ornament Giveaway

Happy Monday, Kids! :-D

Hope you had a merry weekend!

It was busy, busy, busy, here – as Sir Beads and I scurried around the stores searching for Christmas gifts. I’m not quite finished, but the list is getting shorter. You could say that I’m on schedule. ;-)

Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever had my shopping complete in early December. Still, every year, right around this time, I *promise* myself that “next year” I’ll be finished by Thanksgiving. Maybe in 2011! LOL

Speaking of presents . . . how about a giveaway!!??!!

I’d love to send this sparkling beaded ornament to one of you!!!

It was such fun to make! I used Swarovski Crystals in a beautiful shade of teal blue, along with Swarovski Cream Glass Pearls, and golden glass seed beads. The ornament measures a very showy 3-1/4 inches long – so it will definitely attract attention as it glitters on the Christmas tree! Whether you keep it for yourself or give it to someone special, it’s sure to become a cherished keepsake.

Giveaway – Tropical Seas Earrings

Greetings! :-)

First I’d like to say a great big “thank you” for all of last week’s clever, thought provoking, and sometimes hilarious comments. You really outdid yourselves. I loved reading each and every one!

Here in New England, we finally had a little snow this weekend. The timing seemed perfect too! Sir Beads and I attended his company Christmas party on Saturday night. Just as we left to return home, we saw that the snow was falling softly all around us. The combination of the holiday party with the blanket of snow and the beautifully frosted tree branches really put us in the mood for Christmas. :-)

But in case you’re dreaming of a warm vacation around now, this week’s giveaway is a pair of earrings that are the color of a tropical sea.

These “Tropical Seas” earrings feature faceted Czech beads in a lovely shade of teal blue/green. They have a matte metallic finish and I’ve accented them with Swarovski Jet-Metal Rondelle Spacers, which are set with Aurora Borealis Crystals. They measure approximately 1-5/8 inches long – including the 14k gold plated earwires
