Blogiversary Giveaway!

This Giveaway has Ended


Since today IS my 1 year blogiversary, I wanted to do something special-Ever since I started blogging one short year ago, I had grand visions of hitting my 1 year with celebrations and giveaways and tons of fun....

Reality is a tad bit different however.

You know when I realized it was my 1 year? About March 5th. Yeah. I'm afraid that's a pretty short amount of time to put together a grand celebration >.<

Trying to figure out what to do, I went back and forth on if I should hold a giveaway myself or buy something for the blog; I was really brainstorming when I got an email from my friend Ileana asking me to hold a giveaway for her jewelry site.


Talk about perfect timing!! You might remember Ileana of Enchanted Beads from her artist feature (View Here) and her stunningly made bead-woven jewelry! Here are just a few examples of her work:



















{The Giveaway}



One lucky reader will win a $20 Gift Certificate to Ileana's shop, Enchanted Beads on Etsy.




{The Rules}

1. You MUST include a way to reach you whether it be an email or blogger URL.
2. Each comment, mandatory and or extra, has to be separate.

7. Purchase something from Ileana's shop (5 extra)

That's 1 mandatory entry + 28 possible extra entries which = 29 entries total!

Good Luck!

Artist Features: Ileana is Amazing! Living in Brooklyn, her stupido overlooks the Verrazano Bridge (inspiring - I know I used to live in NYC too) - prefers to work/create with semi-precious stones and pearls (me too!) and is also a linguist (among other things.) I'm all around dazzled!
