A Book Giveaway -- Choose Your Own Book!

In line with the Choose Your Own Adventure book that I posted about, I am now offering a giveaway for a free book of your choice -- but YOU get to choose which book!

This offer IS open to international folks as well -- your book just might take longer to get to you.

Here are your choices:

"Pretty Little Mistakes" by Heather McElhatton
A grown-up version of Choose Your Own Adventure

"The Complete Color Harmony" by Tina Sutton and Bride Whelan
"Easy Beading Volume 6", 
which contains tutorials by tons of artisans in all sorts of mediums, even by yours truly
(and if you want those tutorials autographed, I can do that). 
Good for the beginner and intermediate beader.

How to win?

1.  Comment below your choice.
and you MUST
 Blog about this giveaway.

Easy as that!

Giveaway will be announced  September 29th!


Lori Anderson creates jewelry for her web site, Lori Anderson Designs, and writes the blog An Artist's Year Off.  She's also a contributor to Art Bead Scene.

  25. Hi Lori,

    First of all, thanks for the chance to win one of those three great books. If I were the lucky winner, I would pick THE COMPLETE COLOR HARMONY. It looks great for all kinds of creative projects. :) I put a link to your giveaway on the sidebar of my blog -- gotta spread the word!

    Greetings from Munich,

  26. Give aways are so much fun - I'd probably pick the color book - I'm not very good at combining colors. Loved your review of your craft show - that's probably why I try not to do them/
    Thanks for the give-away chance

    I tried to blog about the contest but all I could do was an announcement post.
    I would choose the color harmony book first or the beading book (2nd).

    Just having computer problems here.

  28. I need that Color Harmony book -- I'm sute it would help me be a better artist.
