Thursday Giveaway...

Celebrate SPRING and the return of the weekly Thursday Giveaway with Beadaholique! This week, one lucky winner will snag this giant horde of goodies selected by the fine folks at Beadaholique. They've put together a great assortment of luscious lucite, floral filigree, glittering glass in striking silvers, mellow yellows, pretty pinks, grassy greens, and lovely lavenders! All of these components would make some really stunning, spring-inspired jewelry! CLICK HERE to check out their website to see the full selection of jewelry making supplies at great prices!

What I love about this grouping is the candy-colors of the lucite. Did I mention that I really love lucite? It's lightweight, provides a pop of color and comes in endless shapes and sizes. It can be layered, stacked, ink-stamped, and altered to your heart's content or left completely unadorned. The matte finishes remind me of fruit jelly candies dusted with powder sugar. (I have to resist the urge to bite them.) The best part is that there is a SALE going on right now at Beadaholique where you can save up to 15% off all lucite flowers! (Sale ends May 9th; use coupon code LUC42 to receive your discount at time of checkout.) CLICK HERE to see all their pretty plastic components!

To enter to win this lovely combination of spring-themed jewelry components from Beadaholique is easy! All you have to do is comment on this blog post. One lucky winner will be randomly selected from the comment section of this blog post on Monday, (May 9th) at midnight EST. Make sure to leave your name if it doesn't already appear next to your comment for easy verification. This giveaway is open to all participants, including international readers.

Bonus Points: You can earn extra chances of winning this beautiful set of jewelry-making goodies by blogging, updating your Facebook page, and/or Twittering about this Thursday Giveaway. Don't forget to add your act of social media kindness as a separate comment for your additional entry to win!

Hi Andrew, actually the Beadaholique sale ends Monday May 9th, so people still have time to take advantage of it.

We're eager to see who wins our lovely spring goodies! Hope you have as much fun using them as we did picking them out!
