I Have 50 Followers Giveaway!

You just can not know the excitement I felt when I logged onto my dashboard and saw that I had 50 followers. Well of course you do DUH! We all get excited when we see that we have another follower.  With me I get that same jolt and wide eyed expression every time from my very first follower to now, and knowing me as I do, that feeling will be the same no matter how many followers I get.

Thank you Tania Covo  for being my 50th follower.  Tania does the most precious animal metal pendants and earrings using pottery shards.  Most of the shards are found along the Thames River in London, England. Go check out Tania's blog at Moonflygirl and while you are there check out her Etsy store you will be amazed by her talent.  I have my eye on a certain piece and as soon as I get a little extra mad money I'm going to bring it  home.

I have met and made so many friends since I started my blog just a few month ago.  I look forward to continuing to meet and make friends.  I have entered challenges and have had a great time with those.  I have won three giveaways and with the last giveaway I won I told my Mom I am going to do my own giveaway when I reach 50 followers, so today is the day.

 To celebrate my 50 followers I will be giving away this bracelet. 

This bracelet is a one of a kind Spiral Rope that I  made with 8/0 seed bead for the base. The spiral has 4mm Czech aqua crystals, 4mm purple died Howlite beads, and 5mm blue and lavender lentil beads. The end caps and toggle are silver tone base metal.

  If you would like the chance to win this bracelet just follow these simple steps:
1.  Leave me a comment sharing how you felt when you got your first follower.
2.  Become a follower and leave a comment that you are now a follower.
3.  Post this giveaway on your blog, facebook, twitter, and/or forum.  Leave a comment for each one that you do, so each will be counted.

I will randomly pick a winner and announce the who the winner is on Wednesday, August 31st.
Thank you again to all of my followers and to those who will be followers, good luck!

Happy beading Y'all
Therese

  2. I am new to beading (and bead blogging), so I remember my first follower very well - a great day!! I am still building my blog, so 50 followers is far in my future I think :)
