A Milestone Reached and a Giveaway

I was excited this morning when I checked out this blog to see that the view tally was at 9,999.  Now I know that is not a big number for a lot of those popular musings in the blogoverse, but it is a huge number for little ol' me.  Thanks so much to all those readers who actually take the time out of their day to puruse my ramblings.

I have decided to celebrate this milestone by having a giveaway of a pair of Artybecca inspired beads. And it is easy ... all you need do is leave a comment as to which pair you would like to win.  That's it.

   Since I am not a mega blog with tons of readers, I am going to give a bit more than the typical week for people to comment. I will pick the winner by random number generator on Halloween in the dead of night  (for those outside the U.S. that is October 31st at midnight PST).
  These are special beads to me in that I actually SANDED them ... yes, me sanding ... I had no fingernails left on my right two fingers afterwards, but it was worth it.  Just wish I could get into the Zen of sanding:  I really like the smooth feel of the finished bead, but it is soooo boring.
Thanks again to Rebecca for the FREE  tut on how to make these.  The
Polymer Community is full of very generous people.  Maybe that is why
I love this medium so much.

   There are two pair of bongo drum beads, blue and lavender, and a pumpkin colored pair to choose from.  I posted pix of earrings made from the other beads made from the same clay blends on my last blog entry, so you can get an idea of their size and how they can look made into something.  Just leave a comment as to which pair you would like to have, and  you may be a winner.


  1. Truly, cause for celebration. Congratulations. And I love your full-hue beads! It's tough to pick a favorite, but in honor of the season, I would have to choose the pumpkin pair!

  2. Congrats JuLee! Since I'm not wearing earrings these days, I'll leave the choosing to your other fans. But I WILL take the inspiration of your steadfast blogging!

  3. I'd love to win a pair! My favorite are the lavender.

  4. Congrats Julee, spectacular number of views, I'm loving the blue pair.

  5. Congratulations on your blog milestone! I love these bongo beads, but if I'm the lucky winner, the pumpkin spice would have to be my choice. The drawing is on Halloween after all!
