New Year's Resolution... and a Giveaway!

My resolution for the new year was to start blogging on a regular basis. But you know what they say about the best laid plans.. :)

Life has been busier than I thought with my son in kindergarten. I volunteer at school at least once a week, sometimes more. Tomorrow we will be involved in a Day of Action - a day for protests against proposed education cuts by the state of California. I'll hopefully get some pictures and post them tomorrow.

In the meantime, I have added a third shop - scooterbank. This is my son's shop. It's still in the beginning stages, but we hope to get some great art in there soon.. 50% of his sales will go to the PTA to help out schools.

If you've been following my blog for a while, you know I did mainly beaded jewelry in the past. I am now focusing on chainmaille and wire wrapped jewelry. Both are very fun to do!



So now for the giveaway.. to celebrate my return to blogland, I will be giving away a lovely pair of purple wire wrapped earrings! To enter, to go my shop and tell me what your favorite item is. For a second entry, retweet the giveaway on Twitter. For a third entry, become a fan on Facebook! Be sure to let me know you've tweeted or become a fan in the comments. The drawing will be held on St. Patrick's Day, March 17. What could be luckier?

This is my absolute fave:
DAMNIT Bess, my paste isn't workin for some reason? What the hell

FAVORITE ITEM is the decoupaged red ornament with the little cutie pie on it.

There's no way I'll win this giveaway since I was lucky once before with your gorgeous celtic pearl bracelet.

So tough to pick a fav Bess - there's so much I love! Opting for the daisy chainmaille necklace cos it would match my daisy earrings:
