Until recently, I was not a big fan of Facebook. I don't really know why - something about how voyeuristic you can be with it, and in fact, the voyeuristic tendencies it brought out in me! For the last few years, I rarely used it, and often missed out on things because I went on it a couple of times a month at most.
However, over the past few months, I've made a conscious effort to change that. It's sort of become like an extension of my blog, or a merging of my blog and the blogs of many of my jewellery making friends from all over the world. I really like that. I like that it's almost become a new thing altogether - not somewhere to check out how many kids someone I went to school with has, or what an amazing job someone I was at university has, just somewhere to check in with the jewellery making community. And I'm pretty good at keeping to that - not too much 'ex-stalking' or looking at friends-of-friends wedding snaps!
On my Facebook page, I recently hit 300 'Likes', which was actually pretty exciting! I promised a giveaway to celebrate but local-(ish) friend Lesley told me that the rules are pretty tricky on Facebook in terms of hosting a giveaway, so I've decided it's just safer to bypass all of that, and post it here instead.
I also did a little mini-poll in some of the groups I'm in on Facebook, asking - jewellery or voucher to giveaway? I got a mixed response, and so here is the upshot - a special piece I've designed especially for this giveaway!
But if you are the winner and you'd prefer, you may choose an equivalent voucher (£25) for either of my shops. That way, everybody is happy!
And just look what is on here...one of my very own, custom-made tags from Mamacita Beadworks. They arrived on Saturday, and I am in love.....
Look how very gorgeous they are! Teeny tiny perfection. Thank you D'Arsie! And along with my initials, Ra is also the Egyptian Sun God. Somehow, that rather pleases me.
So, to enter this giveaway, just leave a comment here. You must either have your email turned on in your blogger profile, or leave me an email address though! And if you would like extra entries, you can blog, share on facebook, or tweet about this giveaway. Just don't forget to come back and leave a separate comment for each act of social media kindness you do.
Giveaway will close on Sunday 23rd, 2pm (ish!) British Summer Time.
Thank you so much to all my followers here, and all my likers on facebook! I so appreciate every single one of you. What a marvellous community to be part of.
