Welcome to the 8 on 08-08 bead stash giveaway!  (peeking over Michael's shoulder is my niece Amelia).  Can you guess the theme of the party?  I'm not the only one in the family who loves collecting lots of small colorful stuff and making things :-)

Using my now usual selection method, and some able assistants, we held the official drawing for the 2nd Beads for Busy Gals giveaway. 

And the WINNER is...
Courtney of Beads by Bruel!  What's funny is that Courtney and I live about an hour apart and have decided that this coming weekend we'll steal away for a coffee and maybe a stop at a bead shop so that we can actually meet and talk face to face!  I'll get to deliver the beads in person.

My sweetie was getting into the spirit of things (and making goofy faces), so I decided on the spot to have a second mini-drawing...
The winner is Kate, of Tropical Blonde.  Her prize is these two focals - one shell and one glass.  Send me you shipping info and I'll get them in the mail soon.
See all of those square jump rings - it's this weeks obsession.  Stand by for more in a future post.  Monday is over and I travel for business to Florida - looking forward to a break from the office - by the time I get back from the quick trip it will be almost the weekend, yippeee!


  1. Haha! That's great! It's like that in my house, except it's my boyfriend with the Lego addiction!

  2. I love that it's a family adventure!!! See you next week!

  3. Congrats on the beady win! Please let us know how coffee and shopping goes! It would be so cool to have a beady friend so close!

    Happy Birthday Kiddo!

  4. WOOHOO! I have never won a giveaway before. I am SO pumped! Thank you!! I'll go find your email address now :)

  5. Congrats to the two lucky ladies!
    Hope you're having fun in FL, Elisabeth. I'm heading down there too, maybe this weekend. And hey, the next time you two get together (this Fall?) please give me a call...I wanna join!
