H is for Holiday Happiness and a Giveaway!!

I just returned from a glorious trip to Interlaken, NY to visit my Son and his family for the Thanksgiving holiday, and the entire thing was gifted to me by my very generous son!! I had such a marvelous time that I, myself am in a very happy, generous mood and want to spread some of that happiness around to the rest of the world. I've been thinking a lot lately about different ways that I can pay things forward to return some of the goodness that has been bestowed upon me, and for me, this giveaway is the first step in that journey.

What do you get?

A new copy of Kelly Angeley's book, Explorations in Beadweaving, Techniques for an improvisational approach, and all the beads and components that you see pictured in the photo below. Its kind of a mixed media spread with a little of this and a little of that; Super Duos, Rivoili's, peanut beads, some delicas, triangles, a cameo, some cabs, and a few seedies, among other goodies!!

The Official Rules:

While I think it would be a super awesome sign of your appreciation for my having this giveaway, if you would follow my blog and/or share this post on your FB page, I won't require you to do that in order to be entered into the giveaway. (If you are already following my blog, I thank you for your support!) The only requirement for entering is to leave a comment following this post and tell me how you will pay things forward in your life in  2015. Put your thinking caps on and be creative! (The most creative response may win something special!)

The giveaway will run from December 14, 2015 until 9pm on December 19th, PST. One lucky person will be drawn by random number and announced on Saturday, December 20th at 1pm, PST.

Best of luck to everyone!!

I don't usually do this sort of thing, but due to some extenuating circumstances and posting issues, I am extending the giveaway through this weekend to give everyone a chance to participate. The lucky person will be announced on Monday, December 22, 2015, at 1pm, PST. Thank you to everyone for your understanding and your participation!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
