Blogging from A-Z || G || Giveaways

I have been the very fortunate recipient of blog giveaways!  I won from Out of the Flames, Eats Love and Happiness, Inspirational Beading and Treasures Found :: Inspiration is Everywhere (I hope I'm not forgetting anyone!).

Giveaways are a really fun part of being a blog reader.  So in honor of today's letter "G" I am going to do a giveaway! Two actually! Since this is part of a hop with lots of non-beaders, and lots of my 'regular' readers are beaders, I'm going to offer a giveaway for each.  If you are a non-beader, you can win these earrings:
I can actually do these in any color - so if you win and you don't like this color scheme let me know and if my stash allows - I can do any color (and silver if you prefer!).

If you are a beader, you can win this bead kit!  (This was part of a HUGE win I received from Erin at Treasures Found::Inspiriation is Everywhere....Erin said if I couldn't use it all to pass it along...).
 This is a kit with a lampwork bead and an enamel bead from EB Bead and Metal Works.  Also included are some light siam crystal and some large (about 12mm I think) brown glass pearls.

All you have to do enter to win is leave a comment and let me know "earrings" or "kit" drawing!

In other beady news, I'm making some progress on the piece from my own kit/challenge(Spring Fling!).  Here's a sneak peek! 
 I'm having so much fun with this kit, and I hope all the other participants are too!  Be sure to come back on the R day of the Blogging from A-Z challenge for the Reveal (April 20th)!  Looking forward to starting my Beading Babes ruffle bracelet this weekend too!

Thanks for coming by!  I will draw a winner for the earrings and kit next Saturday April 14th.


  1. I would love to win this kit! I've been wanting to work with these colors!

    Thanks for the awesome blog. I always enjoy reading!


  2. What a great idea, to use the letter "G" for a blog give away! Love the kit, Amy. The lampwork bead is beautiful.

  3. How clever to use G for giveaway. The kit looks wonderful. The colors are so yummy.

  4. Nice use for G! You don't need to put me in the drawing. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month.

  5. Kit would be awesome.Great use of the letter G.

  6. Hi Amy, Great use for G day is a giveaway. The kit looks wonderful. I am enjoying stopping by each day to see what you have posted next.

  7. Nice giveaway!!!!!!!!! Very pretty kit!!! Thank you. Happy Easter!!!!


  8. I have been enjoying your Blogging from A-Z series! The kit would be awesome!

  9. I have been having fun following your daily blogs and even some of the other A to Z blogs. But I have to say that the ones about beads (like yours, with lots of pictures) are my favorites of course!

    And I would love to be entered to win this kit...that Lampwork bead and the Enamel bead are both so awesome! I rarely work with anything larger than seed beads so I don't really have a great collecton of larger/focal beads or Lampwork beads...that's something that I need to remedy soon!

    Thanks for introducing me to this A to Z blog hop...such a great way to find some great blogs to read!

  10. Hi, Amy! What a generous great gal you are! I love jewelry and can never have too much. I am not a beader so I would love to have the earrings. My colors are reds, purples, or blues. Thank you so very much for the chance to win them. Now I am on my way to read some more posts. Ruby

  11. Hi Amy, I would love to win the kit. I'm sure I could do something with that! Thanks for having the giveaway!.

  12. Hey there, what a lovely giveaway! I was originally considering using the same word as you for the letter "G" but decided to put it on a different day.

    I would absolutely love to win the beads-- count me in!

    I had lots of things that I wanted to say in here, but I'm so tired that I can not remember right now. Oh well~ I can always post again later! <3

  14. Ohhh I'd love the kit as I am a beader but I'd also love the earrings as I am a fan of those too...but I suppose as I am a beader then the kit it will have to be!

    Loving your A-Z posts, especially as they relate to beading!


  15. Can you say beautiful?
    Wow! So impressed.
    And earrings, definitely, because the one thing I'm not is crafty - just an admirer of other people's good work!

  16. Oh you so know I want want want that kit! I am looking at my Spring fling kit today and am truly very pumped to see what it wants to be.


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
