Destash Giveaway!

OK!  Shaking off the craziness of this morning, and going back to doing what I LIKE to do.

Marsha DeCoster and Cynthia Deis contacted me the other day and asked if I'd like to participate in a giveaway.  The reason?  As they said, "We're all doing this for the magic of the internet."  And isn't it true, that the internet, for all the bad it can do, really can do some pretty awesome things?


Some are destashing beads, and I thought it would be a perfect thing to do as well.  In my case, I'm going to be destashing some Bead Soup packages, all different colors and types, so you will be totally surprised at what you get!

All you have to do is leave a comment. 


Here are the other participants:

Beverly Gilbert , Eye for Color
Val Hebert, Val's Art Studio
Jeannette Cook, Beady Eyed Women
Carol Dean Sharp, Sand Fibers
Marcia DeCoster , MadDesigns
 Cynthia Deis , Shiny Little Things


The hop ends at noon on December 14th.
And I'll pick several winners.

(Sorry, the box will be too heavy for international this time)

Best of luck!

  132. Lori, I LOVE your blog Pretty Things! I always relate to what you have to say, for example, I just finished my own blog post, which included a paragraph about "I AM love", and there you have it as the quote of the day! Do you find a lot of people feel close to you even without meeting you? I bet they do!

    BTW, Mazel on you for the online craft fair and saying "no" to stress. Shame on those who complained because their expectations were not met, and for never expressing their expectations in the first place and then making you responsible for their disappointment...SHAME on them!
