Time for a Little Blog Candy

I've had a damn good day today. I'm all set up in my booth for the Gift Show here in LA (see previous post). Can I even tell you how thrilled I am to be right alongside Papaya!? I also got some other nice phone calls today with amazing news that I just can't share with you right now - but rest assured it's GOOD!

So, I think it's time to start some regular blog candy. That's what my friend Lisa calls it. Here's how it's gonna work. You have a chance at winning these lovely handmade (by me) earrings! They are all sterling silver, with glass square beads and fresh water pearls.

ok - aweful photo - so yellow! But no time to fiddle, so here goes.

Every time you post a comment here on the blog, you get your name in a hat to win the earrings. That means, the more you comment, the better your odds are of winning. I will pick the winner on February 1, and then also immediately announce February's blog candy item. Comments for January only will count for these earrings.

Yes, the comments that have already been posted this month will be part of the lottery. Yes, those people get a little extra chance - but hey! they even commented without the thought of winning something, so I think that deserves a little something extra. You can still comment on the older posts from this month!

I am so excited for you and the good news.....whatever it is!!!! Can't wait to hear details!

Mija said...

You're gonna make us wait for good news?! GAH! i'm the worst at waiting for surprises and good news!!! he he But it's better than waiting for bad news i guess.

you're so sweet to offer such succulent blog candy! and did i mention Feb 1 is my birthday? my 40th birthday at that. so i think that increases my luck on winning the earrings. i'm pretty sure it's a cosmic law or something :-D

have a fabulous show Tally!! and how fun that you'll be next to Papaya!

smiles,
Mija

Blog Candy! What a great idea!

Maybe I'll do something like this in February!

Congratulations on whatever that phone call was about and on all of your wild successes!

I don't know why I'm putting an exclamation point after every single sentence!!!

I'm just excited I guess!

BloggingQueen said...

Wow -- I'm not sure which makes me more excited: your shout-out to me, your fantabulous news, or the prospect of blog candy. I'm reeling!

OMG, right next to Papaya!... I would just have to keep an airsick bag at my table, because I'd be liable to throw up just being in close proximity to one of my art heroes.

And wouldn't that make a lovely first impression.

Stunning! So happy to have read your post on the Artchix yahoo group post - great earrings, but even more, I LOVE your blog header. Very pretty! I am a mixed media artist myself finishing up my undergrad degree in Fine Arts, isn't art such a wonderful thing. :)
