Charm Necklace Giveaway

Click on the picture to see a larger view.
I want to thank each and every one of you for being a follower of my blog. That little block of pictures on the right hand side of my blog means a lot to me and it also lets me know that someone is actually interested in what I post. (Every comment I get helps with that too so keep posting them. ) Soooooooo....... in honor of getting almost 225 followers I am having another giveaway. (I wanted to do it when I hit the 200 mark but it whizzed by so fast that I missed it.) Since I was on a roll making charms I just kept going and made another necklace.

To be eligible for the drawing of the necklace just do the usual and leave a comment. (You don't have to be a follower or sign up to be one to win the necklace.) Please make sure to sign your name in the comment box so I know who you are. (I can't keep track of everyone by their on-line ID or email.) I will randomly choose a winner next Tuesday, June 8th.

Good luck everyone!

Wow! I'm the first commenter, so I don't think it likely that random generator will choose me. What a beautiful necklace. And so generous of you!!

Sherry said...

I love this necklace - the colors are so ME!! But I'm thinking the odds are pretty slim that the RNG will pick #1! If it doesn't, I'll just have to buy one!

paperqueen said...

sheesh, I thought I already was a follower. I mean I do come here every day, how much more could I follow you without being called a stalker? But I know what you mean, so I clicked the follow button, so now it's official.
well, you know how I feel about your charm necklaces, and much as I love the blue/green combo, and much as it hurts to do so, I'll take myself out of the running for this one and allow someone who doesn't actually have one a chance to win. Boo hoo!!! I'd really love this one too!(I'm such a greedy so and so).

How wonderful to get to create in your art room all day. I stumbled on your blog by clicking "next blog" and I'm glad I did. Lovely art. Fun necklace. It has personality. And to give it away is so interesting. I wonder where it will end up.
