I can hardly believe it... six months have flown by. For someone who wasn't quite sure that blogging would be her cup of tea, I have to say I'm having a blast! Getting to know so many of you lovely readers, not to mention being in touch with the fabulous artists and crafters who have been featured here since March... well, I'm very glad I took the plunge.
So then, to celebrate... how about a giveaway?! The prize is pristine, brand new copies of the September/October 2008 issue of Bead Trends and the January 2009 issue of CardMaker Magazine, and since it's all about making, I'll send along some nifty card making supplies too. The Bead Trends idea book features instructions for one of my gold-gilded filigree pendants, as well as many more handmade jewelry designs. CardMaker includes patterns for a quilled calla lily card and a quilled Valentine, plus a zillion other greeting card ideas. All you have to do to be entered in the drawing is leave a comment by the end of Sunday, September 6th.
It doesn't matter in the least if you've never commented before... if you're reading along, that's pretty terrific all by itself. Would you believe this site has been translated into 58 languages?! (Meet Google Analytics... my new best friend, har!)
Check back on Monday, September 7 when I'll announce the winner. And don't worry if you aren't in the U.S. - I promise to ship the treats anywhere in the world.
Here's to many more posts of papery goodness - thanks, everyone!
