Damn the time went fast...
Anyhow, we're now into the start of my favorite time of the year. While autumn won't start 'officially' for a couple weeks yet, I know now that the 5:30 am walks to work will be done in shorts and flip flops, less and less. Pretty soon I'll be forced to wear shoes outside again...*sigh*
But with that little inconvenience comes the milder temperatures, the beautiful colors, the wonderful scents ... damn... starting to crave a cup of pumpkin tea already... Is it just my talking about it? Or the fact that my toes are chilly making me think of fuzzy socks... and fuzzy socks just go perfectly with pumpkin tea and autumn leaves.... ? lol
Crap... and I just realized, I've been home from work three hours now.. and still haven't put on any coffee!! *gasp* Horrors!! I need to go make a pot... I can NOT have an apartment that is not filled with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee... well... unless the scent of some Autumn-inspired tea...
I'm rambling, sorry >.< Back to the point.
Yes... I had a point. Honest.
Of course now I've been distracted by thoughts of coffee and fuzzy socks, so it make take me a minute to remember it... >.<
Well, September and October, anyhow :)
Those of you who were reading my blog last year at this time, may remember that this is MY time. Which means of course I like to celebrate.
I posted a little question on BSC asking what everyone thought was a better idea; one big giveaway, or a bunch of little ones scattered through out the month.
There are aspects of both that I like. I really enjoy doing the month long progressive bundles, but then I like the quick little ones too. They didn't work well the last time I did the little weekly ones, but my readership was significantly smaller then. Back then, a week long giveaway would get maybe four or five entries... if that. I'm hoping that the bigger 'following' means more entries for the little ones.
Yes, that means I'm doing the little ones :)
Of course, I'm also going to do a big one, too :D
So here's how it'll work.
The first Friday in September .. that would be this coming Friday ;), I'll post the big guy. Then during random blog posts through out the month I'll re-post a photo and link to the big guy ... with some new additions added in ;)
In the mean time... every now and then, I'll also be tossing up some random little giveaways.You'll have to pay attention to each one, because they'll all be different. Some will have specific tasks for you to do to enter... some will have different lengths of time to enter. If you don't follow the rules, your entry won't count ;)
I got tired of regular old boring giveaways... what's fun about clicking a button? No... the little giveaways are going to be 'special' :D
And since everyone who reads this blog knows I've been on a bead buying binge this past month... you all know I've got tons of goodies that might just find there way into bundles ;)
And we'll start things off right now.
Who would like a chance to win these?
16 8mm Dream Agate Rounds, 2 double holed carved horn beads( they could be bone. They're a little over an inch long and slightly curved ). Plus a bundle of faux suede cording in a nice chocolate brown :)
All you have to do to enter... is show me your socks.
Yes. That's what I said.
Show me your socks.
Grab your camera and take a photo of your socks... like this.
And for the record, all my skull socks either have grown holes and been tossed, are missing mates.. or are in the laundry ..>.< That's why I'm wearing the Muppets.
Anyhow... back to business.
Post a link to your photo in the comments here. Remember, if your picture is on Facebook, you have to make sure the folder it is in, is set for 'public' or we can't see it... and it won't count ;)
Oh... and the socks have to be on FEET... not just laying the bed or the top of the hamper ;)
And don't just show me boring old socks... pull out your faves... and your fun ones :)
I decided to do a second little prize for my favorite photo...
A pair of lavender and white fuzzy socks :) these are ladies size 9-11, but really... they're soft and fuzzy and warm... and its not like you'll care if they're a bit big on you ;) Plus, if I'm REALLY impressed ( or jealous) of your socks... I may just slip some beady goodness into the package with those socks ;)
So, quick! Grab your camera and go dig out some socks to pull on!
I'll give everyone until Thursday, September 7th... hmm... we'll say 7pm EST.
