Art Beads certificate giveaway winner, Jan./Feb 2010 EBW Challenge entry

And the winner of the e-mail gift certificate is my fellow EtsyBlogger member Margaret of Splendid Little Stars! Congrats Margaret! I contacted her on Etsy to get the information that I need for ArtBeads. As soon as they have her information, they'll send her the gift certificate. Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the giveaway!

I listed my Jan./Feb. EBW Challenge entry today for the theme ocean/sea. I've wanted to do something with coral recently, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I decided to combine it with my leaf design and a few other recently acquired components. I used some of my funky nuggets from Jen (blueseraphim), the vintage fish button I got from one of my button exchanges with Kelly (kreatedbykelly), and some swarovskis and cubic zirconias from the ArtBeads blogging program. The components I got from ArtBeads are bicone aquamarine swarovskis, faceted roundelle caribbean blue opal swarovskis, and peridot CZ round beads. I think that the swarovskis and zirconias added just the right amount of sparkle. I'm really pleased with the overall result.

Voting for this challenge won't be until February 9-15. I will post more information about it then.

One of my goals for 2010 is to do a better job updating my Facebook fan page. I have stuck with it over break. Hopefully I will continue to do so! I know several people who have had a lot of sales/Etsy exposure from their pages and hope that I can have similar success. If you haven't already become a fan, please consider doing so!

Enjoy the rest of your New Year's Day!

Disclosure - I received my ArtBead's products free of charge through their blogging program. I am honestly reviewing their products and have not been paid for my endorsement as it pertains to the products I received.
