Sarcasm Does a Giveaway with Marcia Balonis!


Well, this is embarrassing. When I went online searching for my usual witty, sarcastic, yet humorous memes for the top of this week’s blog, all my searches kept coming up with earlier posts from here or my own Facebook page, so there’s this one! I’m drowning, send me some meme’s people!!!

I promised you a giveaway, and here it is! Marcia Balonis has kindly offered up an autographed copy of her new book, Lush & Layered Beadweaving: Stitch Jewelry With Texture and Dimension. I have had this book for a couple of months now, and have done several of the projects in it, and have to tell you, it is delightful! I love that she photographed the projects over a two-page spread so that I could enjoy the detail while I was making them myself.

These are just some of the projects I have completed from the book:

There are over 20 absolute gorgeous projects using a variety of seed and Czech beads. Marcia makes excellent suggestions not about what colors to use, but how to choose your colors for each project. I really liked the “Marcia’s Tip” scattered throughout the book that didn’t necessarily have to do with that particular project, but beadweaving in general, which I found particularly helpful.

I want to thank everyone for their patience as I resolved an issue on website yesterday as you attempted to download Marcia’s pattern. There was an update that reset all of my custom settings back to the default settings that I wasn’t aware of until some of you started having issues. As for those of you having issues getting locked out, please understand that if you registered here on the blog it does NOT crossover to my website and you will have to create a new account to get the pattern, but you will not have to share any financial details, as it is a free pattern. The email from here gives you the details and will go back out a last time tonight. If you still want that free Marcia Balonis pattern pictured below, then you HAVE to open the email I sent Sunday or the one I send tonight, as it has the password to retrieve the pattern!

Look, I know I’m off my game now, and I really apologize.

Sarcasm Has TWO Giveaways!


I have been EXTREMELY neglectful of all of you for quite a while, so to make up for it, I have teamed up with Marcia Balonis for not one, but TWO great giveaways! The first one I will be revealing in the coming days on my blog, and it’s GREAT! As for now, how about a FREE brand spanking new exclusive-to-my-blog-subscribers bracelet pattern from Marcia Balonis? If you already subscribe to this blog, then you have received my email with the details on how to get the free pattern. It’s called “Stars over Moon” and utilizes the Hubble stitch. All you need is a few colors of 11/0 seed beads, some Czechmate Crescent beads, and 2mm round or firepolish beads.

When you go to my website, please keep in my mind that if you have never registered there before you MUST create a NEW account in order to check out. Your registration here on the blog does NOT crossover.

This is a password protected item on my website and the password is in the email. I will send another one out on Tuesday, so if you aren’t subscribed, do it before then! As for the BIGGER giveaway, I will be posting that here on or after Tuesday.

Until next time, stay smart or stay smart sassy!
