Giveaway – Bead Shopping Spree!

giftwrapIf you saw my β€œFunny Money” post last week, then you know how much fun I had while spending a department store coupon recently.

I‘d love to give that experience to one of you and so this week’s giveaway will be a little shopping spree in my Bead Shop on etsy!

Yep, that’s right! If you are the winner this week, you’ll be able to spend $15.00 on the beads and findings of your choice and get free shipping too! πŸ˜€

Even if you’ve never “played” with beads before, here’s your chance to give it a try. I’m sure all of the beaders out there would enthusiastically tell you that you are going to love it!

Giveaway – Bead Shopping Spree! — 69 Comments

  1. I would prefer to be pampered at a hotel. Sleeping under the stars is nice too but i can do that in my back yard.

  2. Fancy hotel for me! I like comfort and relaxing in a vacation. I don’t want to worry about anything ^^
    Thanks a lot for this great giveaway!

  3. Honestly? I love both. If it was a family thing – then camping. It would be a lot more fun for the kids. Alone? Total pampering at a fancy hotel, where I could concentrate on me, and solitude.

  4. Besides your family, friends, and pets, what else would you hate to have to live without: Are we talking emergency? Or preference? In an emergency, I would (after making sure the family and cats were safe) I’d grab the photos, as most are old, prior to digital (and therefore backup) and some are of long dead relatives. After that, my laptop. I don’t watch TV much at all, so my laptop is my connection to outside news, events, as well as most of my connection to family and friends, not to mention my work.

  5. For my very own vacation, I would prefer pampering at a fancy hotel. Hopefully with unlimited food and drinks supply haha!

  6. Besides my family, friends, and pets, I hate to live without my precious baby, which is my new notebook, a present from my mommy.

  7. I would much rather be pampered in a hotel. I have nothing against nature, but I like having bathrooms at my disposal πŸ™‚

  8. Oh how exciting! I love all your vintage beads on offer. πŸ™‚

    I would definitely prefer camping under the stars. There is nothing like it.

  9. Without any hesitation… I’d rather be in a sleeping bag under the stars (within the Sequoia National Forest or on Greenhorn Mountain) πŸ™‚

  10. To answer the second question, I couldn’t live without crafting or playing with my Sculpey. It’s brought such peace, a purpose, and the best part is that crafting has allowed me to make TONS of new friends on Flickr, Etsy, and through craft shows in LA/OC in So Cal.

  11. You should do a blog post about crafting on a budget. That’s one of the things I like about my craft, invest $20 in some Sculpey (get it on sale at the craft store and it’s even better!), get out a toothpick, single-edge razor, a butterknife and go to town!

  12. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my beads. The wrapping was too pretty to open so I just looked at everything for several days. I am just now opening each little package to get in some bead therapy. I will make some very pretty with each grouping.

    Thanks again for letting me go wild in your Etsy Shop and also for the free shipping. You are a very special lady!!!
