December Bead Giveaway!

Happy December! I love giving gifts, and haven't done a Bead Giveaway for awhile, so this month I'm giving away TWO gorgeous beads! One is a snow Globe, valued at $89, and the other is a Gem Globe, filled with hundreds of sparkling CZs, and valued at $150!!! Find more beads like these in my BeadShop!


There are 3 ways to enter, and you can do each of them once!

1. Sign up on the Beadist Mailing List. You'll automatically be entered in the drawing, and you'll get friendly little emails from me, letting you know when new beads are ready to go, and special deals just for those on the mailing list.

2. Leave a comment on this post. Only once!

3. Leave a comment with the Secret Word "BEADS" in it on any post on my other blog, Positively Vegan. Again, only once!

Two winners will be chosen by random drawing on December 16. You must be "present" to win, meaning if I can't find you to get your address within 24 hours, I'll pick someone else. Check back here to see if you won!

I think that's it. Good luck, and Happy Holidays!!!

A "BEADS" Giveaway?!?! YaY!! I just want folks to know that even if they aren't Vegans, they should read your Positively Vegan blog. You have most interesting recipes, it's like going on a Food Exploration. Don't always go out to a restaurant! Go to Kim's food blog and have an adventure!

These beads are awesome! When Santa Claus is done shopping he may have enough money leftover to buy one (unless he wins one!)

P.S. I recently changed my e-mail to a comcast account, not sure if this comment will reflect that.

I love (and admire) the way you give away beads! I don't need to win to be excited and I hope that you have some small idea of how uplifting it is when you are so generous. Thank you for being such an inspiration and a bright light in this world of ours!

If you have just been enjoying Kim's beads via her BLOG and/or website, it's time to purchase and treasure them. Her beads deserve a more elegant word as they are works of art.

Linda said...

Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents with us and for your generosity! I love ALL your beads!! Merry Christmas everyone!

Sara said...

So glad you are making beads again!

Kim, what a lovely way to celebrate Christmas. Your globes are lovely and anyone who buys or receives one is very fortunate. I have many of your beads on my Troll bracelet and all my family and friends have their own favorite. My favorite is still the one with barbed wire!

Best wishes to you and your family. How's the grandson?

You are truly a talented artist!

I thought I had posted a comment but don't see it so if this shows up twice please pardon. :) I like the globes but mine would have to be largely purple. I would love to watch you make one - torch work is not something I aspire to. Scared of the torch!

Very cute .. Telling you that you’re “appreciated” does not do your service justice.

As you know, Kim, I regard each of your beads as a unique art piece - those I don't wear end up hanging off lamp switches. These globes are stunning - and show up so well on the sheet music - very Mozartish :-). Norine

JoyceK said...

Wow!! These "BEADS" are stunning! To say I would love to have one would be putting it mildly. Thanks for your generosity!! Crossing my fingers!!

Yvonne said...

Wow! Lovely beads that would be soooo wonderful to win. So I'm in.

M-E said...

I'm so happy you are making Snow Globes again! They were a huge hit as gifts for the holidays last year and I absolutely LOVE mine (yes, I guiltily kept one for me!). There is something especially magical about snow globes and your rendition is amazing!!
