A New Glass Guess! June 8

Time for a new Glass Guess! I’m having so much fun playing with recycled cans… sometimes called upcycling. I host a retreat for beadmakers every May and this year my good friend Lisa showed us how she’s been incorporating cans into her jewelry and my heads been spinning ever since!

I wanted to add my beads into the mix so I sat down and made a batch of mini beads to use in my earrings. And I finally had time to sit down and construct some today!

So here they are… my Recycled Pop Art Earrings! I’m anxious to hear your feedback. I just love them! They’re light, funky and “green”. How cool is that??

So let’s play Glass Guess and pick one of these sets as your prize! I’m thinking of a number between 1 ~ 200. One guess per person until Thursday June 10 at 5pm EST. If no one has it at that point you can take as many guesses as you like until we have a winner. Good luck and have fun!

Finally… A New Glass Guess for April 26

Time to get back at it! Sorry I’ve missed the last few weeks. The prize this week is your choice of a pair of my new button post earrings. You may choose one of the sets shown in this picture or request your own color combo. I’m excited about these as I’ve had a lot of people ask for something smaller. These fit the bill!

I’m thinking of a number between 1 ~ 200. Remember the rules? One guess per person until this Thursday evening at 7 pm EST. If no one has it at that point, feel free to guess away until you win! Have fun and see you Thursday night!

Glass Guess for the week of Feb. 21st

Ready to play another round of Glass Guess? I need to remind my former winners that you’re welcome to play along but if you’ve won in the last 2 months, please let someone else get a chance, eh?

It’s another Olympic inspired prize this week. I just can’t stop! This time it’s a pendant… So I’m thinking of another number between 1 – 200. One guess per person until Thursday at noon. If no one has guessed it by that point, you may take as many guesses as you wish!

Have fun… see you Thursday!

Another Must Have Monday… errr, Tuesday!

Perhaps I need to come up with a new name for our contest! And perhaps that will be your task this week. πŸ˜‰ This week’s prize is one of my favorite pendants; black and white with bumps all over…

So what shall we call this weekly contest? Must Have Monday works when I have time to get it ready on Monday but doesn’t make much sense on Tuesday. So throw out some suggestions and the one that I choose will win the pendant! πŸ™‚

I’ll be back tomorrow afternoon to see what my choices are… be creative. I know you can!

Must Have Monday… errr.. Tuesday! Again…

Shame onΒ  me! I missed last week’s contest and this week’s I’m a day late! I’m blaming it on the cold winter weather and my urge to hunker down, hibernate and dream about Spring.

This year I’m going to try some different contests to see if we can get more participation. One of my goals this year is to hit the 500 fan mark on Facebook.Β  SO this week’s contest is going to include some extra work on your part. Hopefully the prize will make it worthwhile!

Because I’m dreaming of spring, I chose a spring like Splat for this week’s prize. And itΒ  includes the hand dyed silk cord as well. We’re headed to the Florida Keys for Spring Break and these colors remind me of the varied colors of the ocean…

Sooooooo… this week anyone that gets a friend to join in our contest will have their name put into a bowl and I will draw the winning name on Friday morning. The more friends that join in the more times I put your name in the bowl! If your friend becomes a new fan on my Facebook page, I’ll put BOTH of your names in the bowl.

Any questions? Does it make sense? I won’t do this all the time. But I would love to see more people join in on our Must Have Monday’s… so spread the word this week! Please? Thanks!!

Must Have Monday… Jan. 18, 2010

There, I’m back in the swing of things! Must Have Monday back on Monday like it should be. πŸ˜‰ This week’s prize is a bright pair of earrings. It’s dreary, gray and cold here in Michigan so I wanted to offer something to brighten up your winter’s day. This set is a favorite of mine. I love the odd shape and the combination of colors. Purple, royal blue and lime green should match something in your wardrobe!

I’m trying to come up with some other contests… I’m getting bored with choosing numbers each week.Β  Aren’t you? So this week we’ll do a combo, two part contest. Are you with me? I’m thinking of a number between 1 ~ 100 but you have to throw in a contest idea when you post your number.No exceptions!

Other than that it’s the same as usual. One guess per person until tomorrow at 11am. If no one has it by that point you can make as many guesses as you wish. And remember, if you’ve won something in the last few months, please feel free to give me contest ideas but let someone who hasn’t won yet have the chance to win the earrings. πŸ˜‰

Have fun, pass the word and as always, thanks for playing!!

Dec. 14 Must Have Monday

Time to get this week’s contest started. But you’ll have to wait for the prize picture until I get home later today. I have the awesome privilege of being present at the birth of Ryan and Tara Lafferty’s baby and I forgot to get this set up before I left for the hospital!

So… you’re playing for a Christmas Light pendant this week. And I’m thinking of a number between 1 ~ 350. One guess per person until 11 am EST tomorrow morning.Β  I’ll post a picture of the pendant once I meet Baby Lafferty! πŸ˜‰
