Besides being blessed with an awesome husband and two wonderful children (and you too, Layla-the-dog), I have had a string of good luck (corny joke alert, ha ha, a beader with a "string" of good luck!!).  I voted on my favorite of a Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy design challenge and won a cute pair of earrings and a pendant.  I entered the giveaway held in conjunction with Bead Soup by Kate of Organic Odysseys and won this outstanding stash of goodies (and a bead themed novel).  I just found out today that I am one of the three randomly drawn from the July Art Bead Scene challange to receive some awesome beads from Lynda at SCDiva.  I even won in a non-giveaway...I posted a suggestion on the Real Simple Facebook page and it made it into the magazine.  My suggestion for a pantry staple was Boscoli Italian Olive Salad and the company contacted me and sent an 18 pound box (!!!) of their products as a thank you.

So it is time to pay it forward in some small way...with a bead giveaway.  Check out this stash that could be yours!  There is glass, stone, pearls, a shell flower and a glass heart focal.

The rules are simple:  leave a comment = 1 vote, become a follower or remind me in your comment that you already are a follower = 1 vote, blog this giveaway (please let me know so I don't miss you!) = 1 vote.  My son Michael will be 8 on August 8th, so for good luck let's make midnight on that date as the deadline.

And while we are talking giveaways, have you seen a site called Giveaway Scout?  Per the web site, Giveaway Scout is a giveaway search engine. Users subscribe to receive updates on the latest giveaways on the web. You can add your blog and your giveaways will be exposed to their large network of users.  They have a widget also you can put on your blog.  I think I'll give it a try and see how things turn out.

P.S. - really even putting the bead giveaway was a win for me - it forced me to clean up my desk and put stuff away!  This will last for no more than 48 hours :-)
