TIME TO MAKE A WISH!

Time to make a WISH, and time for a GIVEAWAY! Since Monday. Jan. 4th is the first Monday of the New Year, I want it to be a good one....so I am having a little giveaway, in appreciation of all the wonderful friends I have met here since I started blogging in 2009, and the unbelievable kindness, support , and encouragement I feel from you everyday! I truly consider myself blessed. I would like to offer my WISH bracelet , that was just featured in the Designer Highlight section of Bead Trends January 2010 issue. I have received a lot of compliments on this piece, so I thought it appropriate to offer it as a symbol , to continue to strive, and hope , and sometimes wish for what we want, whatever that may be. I believe that a wish can be magical....and I hope it is for you.
Just leave me a comment, anything you like, and that's it.....eeeeeaaassy!!
Some people will be allowed to enter through email or flickr mail if they don't have a blog, since I have met some extraordinary artists through other venues also. You can enter till midnight on Jan. 16., and I will pick the winner on the 17th, and announce on Mon. the 18th.

BEST WISHES!
