Givin' it up

Ha.  Scared ya, didn't I?  No, not THAT kind of giving up.  The kind that has ME giving it up as in giving things AWAY!  So who's up for a contest?  I plan to have a give away to celebrate another visitor milestone to the blog - 26,000!  I did a little inquiry on Facebook, and think I will offer the winner a choice of either a finished piece of jewelry, or a surprise bag of beads.  I realized that I have fans and followers that are some of both - jewelry lovers, and bead lovers.  Now comes figuring out the contest part - trivia?  Puzzle? Random draw from comments?  And then decide on the prize - especially the jewelry part.  I'm thinking probably earrings - but that's as far as I've gotten.  I will probably wait until closer to the end of the month - until Mercury -
our planet of communication, gadgetry and all things internet-y - goes back direct.  I know.  I know.  Many of you are saying HUH?   I can't help it.  The astrologer person in me just pours out sometimes.   It's another love of mine that even flows out into my jewelry AND my babble from time to, anyway - it does this crazy, wonky backward thing called Retrograde a few times a year - and can make all things communication and decision making a little weird for a few weeks.  Phone died?  Blame Mercury.  Laptop fizzled?  Yup.  Mercury.  We blame him. ALOT.  :)  He goes back the right way again at the end of the month...whew.

So stay tuned.  I will keep thinking on that contest, and how to offer what will surely be awesome prizes!

For a sneak peek at some of my jewelry - hit the Etsy link up at the left and check out the shop.  And for beads - here's just a teaser of some of the beads that I still have left in my inventory:

And speaking of inventory; it's part of the reason you haven't had a new post from me in awhile.  Gotta count them babies....  :/  ugh.   Almost done.  For another year....

Peaceful beading.

Can't wait. Watching and waiting. I don't think I'm in retrograde, though. :) Hope you get your inventory done soon. :(

Well, Kay, unless you were born with MRX (Mercury Retrograde) somewhere in your chart - you're under the 'spell' too. Pay attention. And keep watching for the contest announcement. I'm hoping that the visitor number and the 1st of March coincide...
