I haven't talked about Creating the Hive in a while, but it continues to grow and flourish as a wonderful "meeting place" for crafters. There, you can check out so many different kinds of crafts and art, follow blogs, do some posting of your own, and really feel a part of a virtual community. And, I'm so fortunate to have met some really talented people who follow my little blog, one of whom is Quentin Eckman. He makes some really beautiful jewelry pieces, and he's having a giveaway!! I've copied and pasted his instructions below because he wrote it so clearly and well:
"This Giveaway will conclude one week from tomorrow (Friday, Mar. 9 2012). The winner will receive one item of their choice from my Etsy Shop listed at $69.00. All you have to do to enter is respond to this notice (email me, email@example.com, or convo me via my easy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LunarSkiesJewelry). Just tell me you'd like a chance to win. You can earn a second chance to win by referring a friend, as long as that friend participates as well (they'll need to let me know who sent them); or by blogging about my Giveaway and sending me a link to your blog. I will use a random generator to select the winner. Each entrant is limited to no more than two chances to win, and my family members are not eligible to win (sorry family members).
Take a look at my Etsy shop, there are currently about 40 items listed at $69.00 (a pretty nice selection if I say so myself :0) http://www.etsy.com/shop/LunarSkiesJewelry
There will only be one winner, but if you don't win and end up falling in love with something when you visit my shop, I will be offering non winners a 20% discount at the close of the contest (email me for the discount code)."
So, go check out Quentin's pieces and enter now! Good luck (mainly to me because I really want to win!)
