Miscellaneous Monday: 45!

I'd like to start off with an apology. I meant to post this yesterday, but I was bitten by the beading bug, big time! By the time I realized I was supposed to write in my blog, it was 11:30 at night -- and my hands and shoulders were exhausted from so much embroidery.

So here I am, posting today. We're on post 45 out of 50, and I thought I'd make my giveaway a little more interesting by giving you, my sequintastic readers, a chance to increase your chances of winning!

All you have to do is answer the following question in the comments, and you'll get an extra five -- FIVE -- entries. Are you ready?

As I've mentioned before, the prize is a box of sparklies. Lots of sequins, some plastic rhinestones, some ribbon, some sequin trim, and other odds and ends, which are a surprise. They can be used in a number of ways, from jewelry to holiday cards and ornaments to embellishment on paper projects.

Question: If you were to win, what with you do with your new sparklies?

I'm looking forward to your answers!

Have a sequintastic day! Rest assured, mine will be a low key one. I need to give my aching muscles a break.


  1. Well, I"m going to be teaching a craft class at my homeschool co-op next semester, so I'm sure I would be using them in there! And I also just found an adorable Christmas tree pattern with sequins! I emailed you the link. Cause you just have to share the sequin love!

  2. Shirley,

    Awesome, on both counts!

    Thanks! Going to check my email now. :)

  3. What would I do with a box of sparkles? I think the possibilities are endless! First, I would geek out over my new treasure trove. After I was done ohhhhing and awhhhing, I would then look at the individual items and see what kinds of designs they inspired. They might go in chainmaille, maybe earrings or necklaces. If they were really cool and vintage looking, they might make their way to my steampunk art project I am currently working. Endless possibilities!

  4. Hi Sarah :)

    Hmmm... I guess I would geek out, too, and drool and ooo and awwww as I pull things from the box. I would save out something super cool to make a jewelry piece and I would then share the box with my grand daughter to make some sparkly Christmas things with. I would give her the piece of jewelry that I make because lately, I have been spoiling her to death with lots of jewelry- more than normal, I mean. :) But, before I did all that, I would send you a big, happy thank you email, not only for the treasure box, but for inspiring me to try sequins again.


  5. Melissa,

    This is exactly what I do when I get my sequin packages in the mail. :)

    Great answer!

  6. Tela,

    Another great answer! I like the idea of inspiring the next generation of sequin enthusiasts. :)
