200th Blog Post Coming Up!

Marble Man might argue but... I can't believe I had enough to say to fill nearly 200 posts. Today's post is number 199. So, to celebrate, I'm starting a giveaway contest. To participate, just leave a comment on this post (be SURE to leave contact info if you aren't a blogger!) and on March 15th, I'll draw a name out of a hat. The lucky winner will receive this necklace:



The pendant is a slice of one of my polymer clay kaleidoscope canes. The slice was baked, then sanded, buffed, and polished with an acrylic coating to protect it from skin contact. The finished size of the pendant is 1.125 inches wide and 1.25 inches long.



I've taken many small slices of a bullseye cane and marched them around the edge for interest.



The necklace is made from antiqued brass chain and Czech fire-polished crystals with sweet little brass bead caps. The finishing touch is a brass-toned "S" clasp.



The necklace is 18" long, but if the winner wants it longer, I can do that. We'll tawk.

Be sure to spread the word - the winner need not be a regular reader. I'm so happy to have kept this blog going for so long, I want to share my joy.

Hey thanks for coming by my blog! I can't believe you're giving away such a pretty necklace - you're very generous :).
I'm game for lunch, too - Wed @ 11:45?

I can't believe you're giving this away, but if you're going to anyhow... throw my name in the hat too! I'm crazy about kaleidoscopes!

I've really enjoyed your blog (and even the Sunday What's Cooking?); it's no surprise to me that you're already at your 200th post -- it's been enjoyable for us all the way.

Have the most beautiful day!
