*** FINALLY! The (FIVE) Bead and Button Bead Giveaways! ***

This giveaway is now over and closed --
stay tuned for more!



To say things have been crazy since I came back from the Bead and Button Show is to put it mildly.  The sign ups for the Bead Soup Blog Party started the next weekend, Zack went to camp, I tried to clear my table (unsuccessfully) and before I knew it, I realized I hadn't posted my giveaway!


This is a five-part giveway -- which means there are five chances to win something. 


First, bits and bobs I bought or was given at Bead and Button:


In full disclosure of what was bought and what was donated:  The mini Wubbers were in my treat bag; the winged heart was donated by Andrew of  Green Girl Studios,  the olive, pink, and brown ceramic pendant was donated by Golem Studio, and the dotted ceramic pendant was in my swap bag from Suburban Girl Studios and she said I should pass it to you.  The filigree pewter, the purple mother of pearl pendant, the blue Greek ceramic pendant, the awesome-cool ribbon, the handmade ceramic button by Diane Hawkey,  and the car-motif connectors by Earthenwood Studio are from me.


,


Wouldn't those car connectors be AWESOME for a story necklace about your summer vacation?




So, that's Giveaway #1.


Giveaway #2 is a FREE Bead Soup Book.
You'll receive it as soon as it's published.



The third giveaway is my eBook on blogging inspriations.




The fourth is a must for going to bead shows -- 
(Your choice of pink, mocha, or navy edges)



And finally, a MYSTERY SOUP
hand mixed by me!


Because this is a pretty big giveaway, I'd ask the following:

To win, you MUST:

1) You post on my your blog about this
2) You leave a comment below with your favorite giveaway

optional

3)  Facebook about this
4) Twitter about this


In your comments, please let me know what you've done.


CONTEST ENDS Friday the 13th of July
(so how can that day be unlucky????)


Good luck!

  50. Lori, this is so great. I feel like I need to give back to the community real soon. Which do I love the most? That's a toughy, but I think I'd better go for the book. Really curious how this evolved into a commercially published book!

    Good Luck Everyone!

  114. You are such an amazing woman! How do you manage it all!? The Bead Soup alone is staggering. 400 participants?! I LOVE give away #1.. only because the beads/bits/pieces and the Wubbers-I do need a new pair- but, the book looks fantastic, and who wouldn't want a handpicked mix bag from you?! I am going to blog (http://www.thecrafthopper.com) about it right now, and post it to facebook, as well as twitter @MamasCraftRoom !!

    ReplyDelete
  115. Hi Lori, Thank you for the generous give away. My favorite thing you are offering is the hand mixed bead soup though I admit I am also partial to the pretties you picked up at Bead and Button and your book looks fabulous. I can't wait for it to hit the shelves. Best of luck with it!

  161. Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy. Ok so I am loving the first giveaway with the assortment of beads b/c I've been dying for a golem AND a green girls studio pendant for awhile now....OR a mystery soup would be awesome too! I'm blogging about this here: http://beadful-things.blogspot.com/2012/07/fabulous-giveaway.html and I am also posting to facebook about it because it will probably reach many more people there than it will via my blog, unfortunately. (New followers welcome!! ) : ) Great giveaway Lori!! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    ReplyDelete
  162. FUN! I'd love to win the olive, pink, and brown ceramic pendant. It would be a challenge for me! And the pretty purple MOP pendant is pretty too. Or your book. :) Thanks Lori... your blog is always so inspiring and fun! I'll go blog about this on my blog now.

    Thank you Lori for being such a generous lady!!

    ReplyDelete
  168. Hi Lori, I just wrote about your giveaway on my blog. Baublicious.blogspot.com. Hope you like!

    As for my favorites of the giveaways they would have to be your ebook, your Bead Soup book and your mystery soup (because Who doesn't love a surprise) in that order.

    Thanks again for everything you do!

    ReplyDelete

    Although I'd be happy to win anything on that lovely list!

    ReplyDelete
  172. Oooooh! So many goodies! I'd like to win them all, but my favorite has to be the beads and your book on blogging!

  174. Lori, these are all fabulous. I'd be thrilled with all of them (well, I already own your ebook), but I think the beads of giveaway #1 would thrill me the most. BTW, I just blogged about the giveaway at torquestory.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete

  179. OOOOH! I want to win something! Pretty, please?

    They are all so wonderful- I have a hard time choosing, but I think what I'd like the most is your e-book on blogging inspirations. That would really come in handy.

  182. Oh, with such wonderful prizes it is very difficult to choose one! However, I think I would go for the Bead Soup Book first and for the Mystery Soup as second choice. I've blogged about the giveaway and post it on Facebook:

  183. Great giveaway! As for my favourite it's a really tricky question. But I love books and surpises so if I had to choose it'd either be #2 or #5.

    I've just blogged about the giveaway.

    Thanks for the chance to win one of these lovely prizes!

    ReplyDelete
  184. OH MY GOODNESS... this is amazing!!

    I tweeted about it - https://twitter.com/kraftymax/status/222998074795106304

    Posted it on FB - https://www.facebook.com/kraftymaxoriginals/posts/435187876525371

    Blogged about it - http://kraftymax.blogspot.com/2012/07/wonderful-wednesday-71112.html

    And for me, I don't think I can choose which is my favorite part of the give-a-way....I guess the bead soup....but only 'just barely' above the other prizes!!

    ReplyDelete
  185. Oh Wow!
    i can't believe i almost missed it!

    I would be thrilled to win any of those fantastic prizes you have, but if i have to choose I think that I would go for the Soup as we are right in the middle of the BSBP, but then, I would love that Tote, and the books...
    Well, you just count me in and hopefully I will be a lucky lady on Friday.

    I hope yo are keeping well.
    Best wishes,
    Noemi
