I like you.

 
I'm still not sure why I started this blog last year, but I know it has become a source of happiness and fun inspiration for me that wouldn't exist without you.    Thanks for that.

Because your comments and encouragements are the opposite of things that suck, I think you oughta have a present. 
Want a bird?


How about a cross?


Maybe a BHB Donut?


I am going to break out my drawanameoutofTHIShat hat next Wednesday.  If you'd like your name to be in it for a chance to win your choice of 1 focal in any of the styles above throw some words in that comment box below. 

If you'd like 2 chances, blog about it.  If you are as shameless as I am feel free to tweet it, facebook it, or take out a front page ad in your local paper.  Just leave a separate comment for each one and that's how many times your name will go in the hat.  You can enter up to 4 times but you can only win once.

I will be drawing 3 winners.  Because there are 3 options available.  It's like math, only better.

You don't have to be a follower but you do need to be sure you leave a way for me to contact you.  Actually that goes for everyone who doesn't have your email enabled on your profile.  Did you know that makes it impossible to respond to your comments directly which makes me really sad and DON'T MAKE ME HUNT YOU DOWN?  Because I will.  Maybe.

If yours is one of the names drawn you get to pick which style you want and you can even pick your colors.    Unless you want a clear bird with green yellow blue orange red purple and pink dots.  That's probably not gonna happen because a) that would be ugly and b) that would be ugly.
Of course now I have to go make one to prove it.

If you aren't a designer and you'd like to have a bead anyway, I'd be happy to make a simple pendant on a cord for you.  Just let me know in your comment.

I will draw winners Wednesday morning, k?

THE CONTEST HAS ENDED.  Thanks for awesome comments!

  15. I love you, Miss Juls. You make my day better just reading the voices that are in your head. Your head and mine definitely need to get together and party. You bring the chocolate minis. I'll bring the margaritas (or vodka). If you pick me, would you please choose again? I was the lucky winner of your last giveaway and I want others to experience the lusciousness that is a Julsbead. K?

    Enjoy the day!
