January 2010 Contest

JANUARY GIVEAWAY CONTEST!!
It's finally here...the opportunity to win a necklace hand made by me, as a thank you to all of you out there that have contributed to my first year in the blogging world.
I selected a sweet little bee necklace, soldered to some of my etched brass, strung on a colorful lavender metal cord with some fun mixed metals. I hope you like it and would like to participate in the contest.
So how do you win this little guy? Just leave me a comment. Once you leave a comment, your name is entered, and thrown in to the bowl, so anyone can enter.

BUT, if you post a comment about the contest on YOUR blog, you get two extra entries in the contest. Just let me know you posted, and you automatically get a total of three chances to win!! What a deal, huh? So go forth, spread the word. The drawing will take place after my class next weekend. So I will draw a name on that following Monday, Feb. 8th.

I want to thank each of you who have ever left a comment on my blog. It has been such an incredible experience engaging in conversation with each of you over the last year. I had no idea what an amazing opportunity this blog would offer meeting such incredible people, and be a small part of their amazing lives. You are all the most supportive, caring, talented and amazing women (sorry, no guys have shown up).

I thank you for your friendship, guidance, and creative intelligence and look forward to many more years of sharing and conversation. It's going to be a great year!! Don't forget to BREATHE!
