We are crazy excited to announce that we are doing our first give away!! It will be fun fun fun and the winnings? Perfection, since YOU will be the one to pick them out!
Thats right, I said that YOU get to choose what you want! How cool is that?! This is how it works:
1. Sign up for our newsletter via our website; if you are already signed up for it, no need to do it again, we just need everyone to be a confirmed subscriber. Need to sign up? Follow this LINK
2. Submit at least one photograph (digital format only please) of a piece of your beadwork (MUST be beadwork such as loomwork, cabochon beading, bead embroidery, etc but can be anything....a necklace, hair comb, cuff bracelet, bolo, etc) along with your name and email address to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Send as many pics as you want, but you only get one entry no matter how many pics you send.
IMPORTANT: you need to submit your digital pic(s) from the same email address that you used when you subscribed to our newsletter!
3. The picture(s) that you submit MAY be used on our website in the artist gallery or other pages; we will always credit the artist if we use a photo of their work so no worries there....just keep in mind that by entering the give-away, you are consenting to our use of the photograph(s).
5. You may only enter ONCE as a subscriber to our newsletter, but can gain an additional entry by spreading the word about the give-away by blogging about on your blog or on Twitter. If you do, include a link with your submission and you will get a total of two entries!
4. All entries will be thrown in a hat and a random drawing will occur on December 20th, 2009. Entry deadline will be at 11:59pm Central time on December 19th. International entries are welcome, just keep our time zone in mind when you submit your entry. This is NOT a contest.....everyone from the beginner to the advanced beadweaver will have the same shot at the goodies!!
Speaking of which.....on to the good stuff!
We thought long and hard on what to give away, and decided that the best thing to do is let YOU decide! Soooo....(insert drum-roll here!) we will be giving away ONE $100.00 shopping spree to the winner!! Yup, that right.....$100 Bucks to spend on anything you want on our website! Pretty cool, right? Well, it gets even cooler! We know how tough things can be at Christmas time, buying presents and everything and yet still needing some cash for the light bill, lol.....so we decided to let you choose either the $100.00 shopping spree OR a check made out to you in the amount of $50.00! Spend the $50 on whatever you need to...presents, the light bill, groceries or charity......its' your cash so do whatever you want with it!
Now then, thats not too shabby for a give-away, right? So what are you waiting for? Take some pics, sign up for the newsletter and submit your entry!
