The regular readers' reward


I keep meaning to (and promptly forgetting to) do this - picking out something for the regular readers' reward and since I plan on having the drawing on the one-year anniversary of this blog - January 17, this upcoming Saturday - it's about time I picked something to give away.

I'm a little disorganized right now - or is that my normal state? I was hoping to actually make something, sew something, and that may still happen in which case it'll be a surprise. But, for now, this set of lampwork beads and the green and dichro pendant will have to do. I had both of them in my stash for many, many years, got them on ebay and always planned on doing something with them and never did. It's time they went to new homes. As always, they look much nicer and brighter in real life and the pendant has a tunnel running under the top dichro strip for a chain or beadwork to pass through.

So, like the last time - leave me a comment on this blog entry. I will write the names on little slips of paper and my husband will draw two names on Saturday. You can tell me which one you'd prefer if you win but there's no guarantee :-) Sorry!
The reason I'm calling it "regular readers' reward" is because it is meant to be just that - something for the people who read my blog on a regular basis and leave comments. The last time, I called it a giveaway and was inundated with comments from people who had googled "giveaway" - not quite what I had intended. Let's see if this works the way I meant it to work.
Good luck everybody!

Hi Doris, They're both pretty (especially the green), but since I won the last contest, I'll let someone else win this one.

I just wanted to say that, while I don't comment often, I do have you subscribed in Google Reader, so I do read all of your blog entries.

Hi Doris - I like them both. Such a generous offer.

So, I feel the same way about private little giveaways on my blog meant for regular readers and am very careful in how I post, unfortunately, it's not just the tags or the post name, but the text in the blog post as well that is searchable. I did a search for blog giveaways posted in the last day and up popped yours on page 3 of the search :-(

But the thing is... it's YOUR giveaway. You can always eliminate the names of folks that just swing by, leave their first comment, don't say much, then drop their name in the hat for your drawing. That's the great thing... your drawing, your rules. Have fun!

We'll see what happens, Marilee!
Katie, I know you read regularly and I'm like you - I read plenty of blogs but hardly ever comment.
Grace, thank you for the input. You are right - my game, my rules. I didn't realize that just the word would score a hit on google. Gotta be more careful in the future.

Yes Doris -- I have you listed as a favorite.
You are one of my "Gypsy's in the Palace" !
The lampwork is beautiful.

You have inspired me -- I think I am going to have to do something like this.
I'm itching to do something -- maybe I will take a break from my BJP and venture out....
AND I have 4 of the months done -- and 1/2 of the 5th. So I MUST be making progress !

Katie (B),
Congratulations on your progress with your BJPs. We'll get to see them eventually, won't we?
And I like being a "Gypsy in the Palace" - sounds so exotic :-)
I'm reluctant to link all the blogs I read to mine because ...... well, mine's a little strange and I'm not sure people would actually like to be linked.
