Blog Giveaway Celebration - No More Comments Please


We've got a winner.  Go to THIS POST to see who it is! 


To celebrate the start of my new blog, I will be giving away one of my Charmed Brass Book Necklaces (seen in the picture above)!  They were featured in the July 2013 issue of Bead Trends magazine.  I only have one left, and it is my favorite; but I want one of my readers to have it.  So here the skinny folks:

To enter the contest you must comment below.  Each one of the following types of comments counts for a vote.  I will use Random.org to determine the winner, so make sure to make each entry count by listing them INDIVIDUALLY.  International players are more than welcome, this prize is very light weight.  ;)

1.  Comment with an answer to this question - What types of jewelry tutorials would you like to see on this blog?  (Examples: beginner beading, resin and bezels, polymer clay, metal clay, stringing, mixed media jewelry, etc.)

2.  Follow my blog!  I'd love for you to follow me, and I will be offering tutorials and giveaways so it will be beneficial to you too.  Try me out and if you are not happy with my content after a few weeks, just unfollow. Just leave me a comment that says something like "Hey crazy jewelry lady, I am now a Native Bloom follower."  If you have a blog, feel free to include a hyperlink to yours, I will return the favor (and other readers may too).

3.  Tell me would you rather learn by watching a video, reading a blog post, or downloading a PDF (or a combination of two or more of the three)?  

4.  Like my Native Bloom page on Facebook.  When I start my jewelry sales the beginning of next year I will use this page to offer deals and discounts.  Leave a comment letting me know you liked my page (along with your FB name).  

5.  Share this post on your Facebook page (include a link to your post).

6.  Repost this on your blog (make sure to include the link).

7.  Pin this picture with the headline "Charmed Brass Book Giveaway by Native Bloom - ends 10/11/13." Once again, include the link please.


That's seven ways to win!!!!!  Once again, make sure to post each entry individually to give yourself extra chances to win.  I'm going to let the giveaway run until 11:59 PM (Central) on Friday, October 11th, and announce the winner on Saturday, October 12th.  I will post the winning comment on a new blog post that Saturday, so make sure you are following my blog or check back with me on that day.  I will give the winner one week to send me their email address.  If the winner does not contact me by that date, I will choose again.  Game on guys and gals!

Here's a picture of the necklace as it appeared in Bead Trends.  


You guys are rocking the comments, thanks so much!  I'm reading them, just don't want to comment and mess the count up.  Thanks guys for all of your feedback!!!!

  13. I'd love to see some beading tutorials. I made my very first beaded cross last week! It wasn't exactly how I wanted, but it was not a total waste either. So I'm hyped into beading right now. :3

  14. I'd like to learn with a video and a blog post. But it really depends on the video quality. Sometimes, when bloggers are beggining to use videos to this purpose, they get a weird camera angle and it gets really hard to follow the tutorial. So, to be sure that people understand, I think the two are cool.
