Taking a Sick Day, Checking Out the Contests

Way too icky feeling to do anything today - especially anything that takes patience and/or steady hands not occupied with pulling tissues to catch sneezes or wipe a runny nose. So, instead of jewelry blogging, I'll just mention a couple things going on in the Beadosphere I think you should check out.

Artbeads.com $1,000 Shopping Spree Sweepstakes

Artbeads 10th Anniversary Sweepstakes for the $1,000 Shopping Spree will be ending at Thursday, March 4, 2010 at 11:59pm (PST). The contest is open to United States and Canadian residents (excluding Quebec) over the age of 18.

Let's Trade aka Share Your Wares over at JustATish - contact Tish with stuff you want to trade.

Become a fan of Erthe Fae Designs on Facebook for a chance to win some really lovely earrings. Current fans are automatically entered into the drawing. On Friday night she'll draw a random name and the lucky winner will receive the beautiful earrings free of charge.

Glitter giveaway at Just Something I Made - To enter the giveaway, leave a glitter related comment. Entry deadline is this Friday night, March 5 at 11:59 pm. She will draw and announce the winners on Saturday, March 6. BE SURE you leave her a way to contact you if you win. If your comment links to your blog, make certain there’s a link on your blog for emailing. While you're there, you can download some really wonderful label templates.

Over at Treasures Found, the March "Inspired by...Dr. Seuss" challenge is on. You have until 11:59 pm CST on Wednesday, March 31st to post to the contest Flickr account. Details at Treasures Found, towards the end of the post.

The Art Bead Scene March monthly challenge is up, too. Van Gogh's Almond Blossoms is the inspiration this month. Details at the ABS blog.

Doreen of Backyard Beads is having a grand opening celebration for her shop, Doreen's Backyard Beads. The winner will receive this set of Wild Things beads which are like those currently in her Etsy shop. You have two chances to win, details on her blog. The drawing is this Sunday, March 7th.

Oohhh!!! Yay! I love contests/giveaways.

Hope you feel better! Zinc, chicken noodle soup, and lots of sleep is usually what makes me feel better. Mostly, I think its the sleep part, but soup is always yummy and warms me up :D

Hi Rose! I love 'em too. I need to get some soup, was just reading "Deez News" where she talked about canning tomatoes and I have a craving for tomato soup now. Wish I could sleep, but it's hard when the nose is stuffed up.

Tish, you're welcome! If I can ever get my act together, I plan to offer up some beads for the swap...things are totally disorganized right now and I've no energy to fix it.

Doreen, my pleasure! Love your work. I, too, hope to feel better soon - this cold is really annoying.
