Book Blog Tour Give Away

Just as promised, 
here are the goodies I have gathered (and made!) to give away to one very fortunate reader who leaves a comment here for the book blog tour
of Lori Anderson's new book,
Bead Soup.
If you look at my previous post,
you will know what it's all about, and who's involved.
Many wonderfully talented jewelry artists, not to mention the super creative and equally talented author of the book, Lori Anderson
Just stop by each and every designer, comment on their post, and you will have the opportunity to win their stash of goodies!
Not to mention the GRAND PRIZE that Lori will be giving away between the 8th & 9th!
Details again for the Grand Prize are: 
For every blog you comment on, your name will ALSO go into the BIG bowl for the Grand Prize! 

How cool is that?
Be sure and check back here between the 8th & 9th to see who wins my
Bead Soup =)
