Milestone Blog Post GIVEAWAY

I'm throwing caution to the wind, breaking my routine, and doing away with my weekly menu plan post (for this week) because THIS post is SPECIAL!

It's my ONE THOUSANDTH Crafty Hope blog post!! Seriously y'all, how crazy is that? In honor of this momentous occasion, I'm having a GIVEAWAY!

It's a bit of a destash really that I pulled together quickly this morning, but it's a whole lot of stuff! (I'm giving my exclamation points a workout today for sure.) I'll admit that the pictures aren't great as I bagged almost everything up, but I think you'll get the idea. (Clicking on the pictures should bring up a larger image.)
There's a baggie of a bunch of buttons and button cards, one with some miscellaneous charms and pendants (a few artisan made), one that has shabby tags that I made, one of some deconstructed jewelry from the thrift store, and one of some large beads.
I pulled one or more bead type from each of the color-sorted drawers in my bead cabinet so there's a full spectrum of beads. These are mostly the more neutral ones.
I can't even begin to say what all in in the one above but let me try: a couple bags of clear acrylic beads, some mother of pearl charms/beads, glass beads, wood beads, ceramic beads, stone beads, double hole dominoes, and pastel glass pearls.
This set is a bit brighter with some glass beads, stone beads, cultured sea glass, glass pearls, chandelier crystals, wood beads, a couple pendants I made, and a few Industrial Chic pieces.
That's all I've gathered for the giveaway for now, but there is a good chance I'll continue to add to it. I'll admit that it's not all super-quality stuff, but it's not just a bunch of junk either - there are some treasures in there. Mostly, it's stuff I've had for a while and just don't know to do with it. I'm trying to fit in all into one of those small flat-rate boxes, but I'm not sure it's going to work.
So, I'll just see how big it gets by the time the giveaway period has ended. I'm guessing you want the deets. Here goes: simply leave a comment on this post by the end of June 1st and I'll pick a winner (randomly) from the comments on Monday, June 2nd. Please make sure your e-mail is included in your comment. Of course, I'd LOVE IT if you'd make sure you're a fan of my Facebook page and/or following me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc. (links are all on the right sidebar.) But, that won't get you any more chances. I'm trying to keep it quick and easy!

Thanks for playing along and GOOD LUCK!

  4. Congratulations on your milestone! "stone" . . . get it?
    I don't know what to do with all those pretty things, other than spread them out and say, "OOOOoo - AAAaaahhhh!" I'd probably just send them back to you and say, "can you please make me something fabulous?" But I wanted to say how proud I am of you anyway!

I do more than one craft, so I know that it would all be put to a great use. Then I would have to do the name as you! Create a box of goodies and get it commented on and send out. Seems like it is a lot of fun. Thanks for the chance of winning your goodies
