Giveaway for February- Happy Valentine's Day from *Numinosity*

Eight one inch diameter pinbacks featuring close-ups of some of my beads made by Button Arcade

Mexican Party pack including one loteria sheet, 4 rusted thingies that I picked up in an empty lot over the border, one Virgin of Guadalupe and some smugglers burlap found on the trail near my house. (It's been washed now)

A Cambodian cotton krama, a long scarve that Cambodians wear as headscarves, belts or many other uses. I picked up a load of these when I was doing a fundraiser for the Cambodian Landmine Museum in Siem Reap.

A little collection of beads including a snakeskin agate (treated), six composite agate beads, two of my own lampwork beads and two vintage lucite leaves.

Well it's high time I did another giveaway, The first one in 2010 now that I've kind of settled in from my travels and have a couple of projects under my belt.

This will be my Valentine's giveaway to you although it's not in keeping with any Valentine's day theme because that's the way I am.

I learned a lesson on my last giveaway which was my first one ever on my blog and I made it way too complicated and a bit of a effort to meet my requirements. This one will be easier.

All you have to do is become a follower, either through Facebook or otherwise and just leave me a comment with your super secret coded email address so I can contact you if you are the winner.
Example: blahdeblog (at) so the spam bot don't lift yer email address.
Also let me know your prize of choice please.

You previous followers are included but still need to leave a comment if you'd like to be included in the giveaway.

I'm trying to offer something for all of you that may be my demographic (beady, rusty altered, worldly) people.

I nearly forgot! The deadline for this giveaway is Monday, February 15th, 6:00PM Arizona time.

    As I am creating and making necklaces, selling them in galeries and artisaneas marquets, I buy very often glass beads to artists. We have several in Switzerland. Two of them, had learned in USA many years ago. They where one of the first leaning this skill in Stwitzerland. After that, they give sometime, courses. I had learned with them. But no time to practice, as I am still working, as freelans, making culturel pharmacie's windows. Take mutch time for documentations.
    So I use others artist?s beads on my necklaces. Just aswell !
