Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2010!!! One of my goals is to always be coming up with creative ways for you guys to spend more time actually applying the polymer techniques that you learn each week from my video tutorials.
And in line with this goal, I would love to get your feedback on a bead giveaway idea that I’ve been thinking about launching.
Basically, there would be a monthly draw where one lucky winner would receive a gift package filled with polymer clay beads that I’ve made.
I cannot tell you how lovely it was to receive the package of Cindy’s beads. So intricate and meaningful to me! Felt like it was my birthday! Thank you Cindy. For the memory so special, for the effort, for the art, and for you. Can’t wait to use those beads in the lanyard. They are spectacular, so perfectly finished. I am having trouble putting them down, they feel so soothing in the palm of my hands. Much fondness, girl! ~Jocelyn-C
To participate in these regular bead giveaway events, you would send in photos of beads or jewelry that you have made… projects based on, or inspired by, pre-selected video tutorials at the library.
The photos and descriptions of your work, would be displayed here at the blog for everyone’s enjoyment, inspiration and discussion.
What a surprise I got to see the photo of my ear rings posted here at your blog. Learning the techniques and applying them like with these ear rings is what I recently joined for and have appreciated the videos, thank you. I hope it enthuses your other members to put their work in too. Thanks for the comments and thanks for thinking enough of my little effort to put in here. ~Elizabeth-K
Today what I am looking for is a sense of whether this would be of interest to you guys. If there are only a handful of takers that would participate from month to month, then it probably would not work. So I am really hoping to hear from as many of you as possible.
If you don’t like this idea, or if have reasons for not wanting to participate, I want to hear from you too. If you have questions about the details, let me know what they are. And if you have constructive suggestions on how ensure this giveaway meets it’s main objective, please do share your thoughts.
The main objective is to give you guys yet another incentive to spend more time making stuff with your clay. A reason to play.
Hello to all… Merry Christmas (late) and Happy New Year to you and your family Cindy. I have been terrible towards the end of this year. I have not made any time for Cindy or her videos. I moved the end of October and just finally unpacked the very last box. I have a whole craft room to myself now with a door and everything. Anyway… for the start of the new year my goal is to watch your videos every Friday and actually make what you teach. I have done quite a bit in the past and was doing really well. But then… life got in the way. I miss you! I promise, I will be a good girl the new year and will not miss a thing. I hope you have a safe and happy holiday season and look forward to all the excitement you will bring in the new year. ~KlayKisses
So everyone… please let me hear your thoughts, opinions, suggestions, votes and ideas about this new bead giveaway idea. I’m excited to do it, if you guys are willing to participate.
