My First Give-Away

I am very excited to finally get to the letter "G" in the A to Z blogging challenge, because from the very beginning I had decided that if I did indeed make it all the way to G, I would hold my first ever give-away. I also knew from the beginning exactly what I would be giving away.

So last night, immediately after I clicked on the Publish Post button, I headed on over to Amazon to order the prize, which should be arriving early next week. So you have probably guessed that if coming from Amazon, it must be a book.  And now you are probably wondering which book I have chosen.  Well, the book I have chosen to give away is "Getting Started with Seed Beads" by Dustin Wedekind. Here is the link to Amazon for a look inside and some reader reviews.  http://www.amazon.com/Getting-Started-Beads-Dustin-Wedekind/dp/1596689757/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1333857254&sr=1-1#_


I have chosen this book due to the fact that when I speak of beadweaving or show pics of beadwoven jewelry, lots of non-beadweaving people will make comments stating that they would never be able to do work like that, or that they wish they could create stuff like that, or that they wouldn't even know how to begin something like that, etc, etc,etc. Well my answer to comments like that is, "Well, I beg to differ, but YES YOU CAN." :)  And for the accomplished bead weavers out there, you can never have to many beading books, right?

Anyhow, to enter the give-away, just leave a comment letting me know you would like to be entered. As with most give-aways earn extra entries by posting to Facebook, Twitter, your own blog or where ever you socialize and leave me the link in another comment. The contest closes at 12:00 am on April 30th and the winner will be chosen at random and announced later that day in my last post of this A to Z challenge. Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you if you are the lucky winner.

Ok, so there you have it, my first ever give-away brought to you by the letter G  and thanks to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge April 2012.

TTYL and make it a good night,
Debbie

Hi Debbie!
I was thinking about doing a giveaway for "G" too, but I didn't have time to figure out how to do it!
So I'll be interested in seeing how you do it!
I'm guessing that you will be picking by comment number?

So this is my first entry! I'll come back to comment when I post on my blog and facebook!

Thanks!
