Birthday Give Away Starts "Friday the 13th"

I've been wanting to do a giveaway, but with so few people currently following my blog, I've been putting it off, hoping that my little blog would grow. Since that may take quite some time yet, I thought I'd do a giveaway to celebrate my Friday the 13th birthday. I'm hoping that if I'm extra generous, than maybe all will go well on the 13th and they'll be no bad luck! lol I don't believe in bad luck, so just wanted to have fun on my birthday, and thought this would be a good way to get the word out about my blog existence and maybe pick up some new followers in the process.

In order to be entered into the drawing you must leave a comment for me on one of my posts. Please take your time and look around my blog and see what you might find that interests you. Don't forget to leave a comment in order to be eligible. Leave as many comments as you'd like and for each comment you leave it will count as an extra entry into the contest. The contest will last for the rest of March. I will plan to draw a lucky winner on Aprils Fools Day!

This will be the necklace that the winner will receive.

Give away: vintage button pendant necklace with silver colored ball chain. Grey background button is layered with a black filigree button, then a vintage mother of pearl hand cut flower shaped button has been added and the most tiny petite mother of pearl child's button is the focal top piece.

Please spread the word about my give away and tell all of your blogger friends to come on over and visit my blog. Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me, and letting me know your thoughts through comments. These comment feed backs truly do help those of us designing art, so I truly appreciate each of you that have left them in the past and thank you to all that leave them in the future.

  15. Hi Gretchen! (that's my Twins name!) I found you through Ramblings at Chippewa Creek and I'm going to post about your give-away on my blog..it's beautiful, I love buttons :D
    I just finished looking at this page, and I LOVE it!
    I thought the same thing years ago, but then I decided I HAD to share what makes me happy, after all, 90% of the crafting I do, I got the idea from someone else's photo of it!
