We Have a Winner!

I did this old school since only three people entered. Not sure how to take that?! 
I'm giving away good stuff!...

 Anyway, I wrote all three of yall's name down on piece(s) of paper and put them in my flower pot. As I was shaking them up, one of the papers hopped out on it's own so that's the one I used.

Emilee come on down girlfriend! 

You are the winner. 

She did have like five entries, so, ya know. :)

Email me your address within 24 hours please.

If you didn't win and are bummed, don't be! I'm giving more stuff away soon.
A big thanks to everyone for entering and playing along.

A Pink Giveaway!

I've started cleaning out my craft/guest room/home office so I'm giving more stuff away!

I've put together a package of baby girl themed items. Ya know, pink, pink, and more pink? These include scrapbooking stickers, embellishments, and charms. All kinds of crafty goodness that you can use for pretty much any crafty endeavor. I bought them with the intent to scrapbook some pics of my niece, who is now 10. So, it's time to purge! No, these things are not ten years old..maybe three or four, lol.

Even if you don't have a little gal of your own maybe you know someone that will soon be having one that these would make a great gift for?

No, I don't have a pic because my camera batteries died but this is a nice large package with super cute stuff. Pretty much all items are new. I'll try to get a pic tonight so you can see the stash. I can't promise though because Pretty Little Liars comes on tonight!! :)

UPDATE: With 15 minutes to spare before PLL, here is a pic!

So, leave me a comment and I will draw a winner tomorrow evening (Wednesday, 1/30/13).
For extra entries, like me on Facebook (LeeLu Creations), blog about me, twitter, become a blog follower if you're not already, ya know, doing all that extra social media stuff will get you extra entries. Just leave a comment telling me what you did.

Make sure you come back to my blog to see if you are a winner.

If I don't hear from you within 24 hours, I will draw another entry. 

Sorry folks, I'm in purge mode so I gotta get this stuff out!!!

Also, I must limit entries to US only simply because shipping international packages is such a headache...or maybe I'm just a whiner, but it's my giveaway and I just can't deal with international shipping right now.

Good luck!

Tucson Design Team for ZNet Shows: What I Made

Imagine my surprise when out of the blue Bill Zhang of ZNet Shows contacted me to be on the Tucson Design team for an upcoming bead show. I'm thinking there must be a catch, but no, all I have to do is do my thang with the beads that they send beads...for moi?! Heck yeah, I'm down! He and his team will choose their favorite designs and take them to Tucson to be displayed in their booth for all to see. Cool!

The mix that they sent everyone consists of cultured sea glass beads. Everyone's mix was different so it will be fun to see what everyone designed!

For now, here's what I made:

This is my mix! 

Bracelet made with Sea Glass (of course), Pewter butterfly and pewter rounds.

Long, boho chic necklace made with sea glass rounds, a 40x30 stone pendant, and a patina'd charm.

Earrings made with filigree round beads and triangle sea glass.
Will you believe that this is the only pic I got of these because they fell off the table while I was snapping pics and points broke right off? Ack!! And I thought these were the coolest earrings. They are glass...and they fell onto my tile floor so, ya know. :(

Ya'll know vintage is my first love! These earrings are made with vintage opal navettes and matte sea glass tulip beads.

Starfish earrings made with filigree bead caps and matte tulip beads.

Round domed sea glass beads with petite vintage daisies. Romantic yet mod?

I hope Bill and team (and you!) like what I made.

FINALLY: The Holiday Bling Blog Hop 2 Reveal

So, I turned into that girl...

...that girl that signs up for a blog hop and then totally misses all the deadlines.

 Ya know, the one who is supposed to post what she's made on a decided date and then everyone gets to her blog and nothing....nada...crickets...or rather it's some other random blog post but not the one about what she made.

Yep, that's me.

I've participated in other blog hops where above scenario has happened to someone else and I would think to myself, "Really? How could they not find the time to take a pic and write a blog post in between the other 5,992 things they have to do? Scheduled post...hello????" And then I would click away from their blog as fast as possible in disgust...

Lol. Well, I participated in the Holiday Bling Blog Hop hosted by Shelley Graham Turner and Marlene Cupo and like I said, managed to miss all the deadlines and just be that annoying girl. I would not blame Shelley and Marlene if I were forever banned for playing with them ever again!

I was paired with Shelley. I know, I know, how can you screw up a blog hop when you're paired with one of the hostesses?? I'll be honest, between work and the holidays I just ran out of steam. I had my ornament made and sent but just fell apart when it came to the blog post. Shameful, I know!

Anyhoo, we could make either jewelry or ornaments. I suggested we make ornaments since I already make jewelry so Shelley was cool with that. But shortly after I suggested it, I thought to myself, "Well missy, you haven't made an ornament since kindergarten so what are you gonna do?" Somewhere I came across the cutest felted owl ornaments so I went with that. :)

Sorry about the pic. It was taken with my phone at work right before I was getting ready to ship him out. Plus, I work in a dungeon so the lighting sucks.

I've also included what Shelley sent to me. It's a snowman ornament made out of polymer clay (i think). I didn't take a pic before packing all my holiday stuff up so I'm borrowing Shelley's pic from her blog (i hope that's ok Shelley!). Isn't her ornament just fabu? My first thought was "You MADE this???" I totally love it. This gal is super fabu. Ya'll should check out her blog and shop.

photo cred, here

Below is the list of participants, so please stop by their blogs and check them out. Of course, at this point you might have to search for the post, lol. At least check out their blogs and see what they are up to now.
