Moving on (Again...) and a Thank you Giveaway!

My last blog post, regarding META and its unjust shut-down of my Instagram page...twice in a month...was my most viewed/popular blog post since I began blogging in 2011. I want to thank everyone who took the time to post a comment either on my blog or on Facebook - I sincerely thank you!

I am Hosting Another Giveaway!

If you have kept up with my blog posts, I recently went into detail about how bad business has been.  But, one benefit is that I am literally poring through every single bag of beads (that number is in the hundreds) to come up with ideas.  Today's make has become my latest giveaway!

Winner - Mixed Metal Earrings and Bangles

Once again, I very much appreciate all the well wishes for me, as well as comments left on my blog and my Facebook post!  It is truly very much appreciated!

COVID UPDATE

A Bump in the Road...and yet another Giveaway!

For the past 30 months (if I have done my math correctly), I have gone NO WHERE without wearing a mask.  I keep hand sanitizer in my car and have not stopped cleaning my hands upon entering AND leaving. My mother and I STILL wear masks in church, though the number of people wearing them is dwindling fast. I am double Vaxxed and double boosted - even though all 4 shots made me so ill for two days. I am not Political in any way shape or form --- I think all politicians are bought. So, I don't think COVID is a "conspiracy".

Winner - Sterling Silver Hollow Form Pendant with Faceted Ruby

Thank you to every one who took the time to leave a comment on my last blog post -- or Facebook posting -- related to entering the contest to win this sterling silver hollow form pendant with faceted ruby!

I did read every single comment and I truly thank you for your kind words!!!

I went the old fashioned way to choose a winner this time.  I typed up all the names, cut up the paper, folded each name, and placed them in my bowl! After a thorough mixing, I chose a name, and the winner is.....

Announcement...Winner of the Sterling Silver Pendant with Artisan Lampwork

Lather, Rinse, Repeat

...by that phrase, I mean let's have another Giveaway! I made a sweet little pendant from this piece of sterling silver, which I first roll printed with a pattern. And I am giving this pendant away!

Winner!

A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to read my blog - some very lovely comments were written on my blog and Facebook page, and I am truly grateful! Wire wrapping artisan lampwork beads was one of my very first projects into this world of jewelry design, and I still enjoy creating this art from!

 

I complied all the names, and numbered the comments.  Random Number Generator chose the winning number for me.

So, the winner of the sterling silver bracelet and earrings, with gorgeous beads made by the very talented Jody Ellen Brimhall is....

Lynsey!

Update...and a Give Away!

Well, I had the intent to religiously blog again in 2022.  But, I can honestly say, I have never had jewelry sales this low...not even the first year some 10-12 years ago when I started selling!  It is depressing, to say the least!  I know...the economy is at its worst, gas prices are high, groceries prices are through the roof, the overall cost of living is, frankly, hard to live with.  The stopped-up-COVID-supply-chain is still "stopped up".
