>Win a Free Copy of ‘Beading with World Beads’!

>

Last night, I finished beading my white English Bulldog pin & listed him in my Etsy shop. It turns out that bulldogs are hot sellers – he is already a reserved item for a repeat customer! You can see the finished item HERE. :)

And, today, I have some exciting news! About a week or so ago, I was contacted by Ray Hemachandra, senior editor at Lark Books. He offered to send me four of their latest beading books to giveaway on my blog! So, every week until Christmas, I will announce which book I will be giving away along with my brief review & all you have to do is enter to win! :)
