Art Beads $25 Gift Card Giveaway

By on Monday, January 03, 2011 81 Comments

 Some of you may have remembered my post about my friend's HO-HO-HO necklace which was a clever and amusing design for before and after Christmas wear.

Well, this is January - the after part when we have to take stock of our credit card indulgences. But if you are a beadaholic, you can still have beads! Just enter my first giveaway of 2011 courtesy of Artbeads.

It is a fabulous way of not only getting some free beads and supplies but you can also save money if you combine it with one of their regular sale promotions!  The gift certificate has no expiry date.

To win the $25 email gift certificate, all you you have to do is make a comment below. Extra entries if you become or are a blog subscriber or follower or also on Facebook Fan page or Twitter. Please say so in the comments. The giveaway ends in a week's time at 6 pm EST Monday,  January 10. I will pick a winner randomly and announce the results as soon as possible after. So be sure to come back and check!

And oh, if you can't tell if you are a beadaholic or not, do check my past post, Diagnosis! Bead Addiction.

  37. Just read your post and I would love $25 in free beads. I'm disabled and live on a vary limited income. I just received my certification in jewel design and I'm hoping to start selling to get more income coming in. But getting enough stock to sell takes having the supplies to make the jewelry. And that hasn't been very easy to do. And also I'm a facebook fan. Thanks
