Spring Fever Design Challenge

It’s been a pretty tough winter for many of us in all corners of the globe including incredible storms and floods here in the UK and severe and lengthy snowfall in the US and Canada. I usually like the cooler months but even I’ve had enough now and can’t wait for the arrival of spring. So I had a little chat with my mate Caroline from Blueberri beads and we decided it was time to host a ‘Spring Fever’ Design Challenge to help nudge it along it’s way. This is your chance to get some beautiful spring themed beads at a great price and
then show us what you can do with them at our blog hop.

Participants in the challenge will each receive one of these colourful layered ceramic flower focal and accent bead sets made by me

And an adorable painted bird ceramic bead set from Caroline

I’m also delighted that the lovely Claire Braunbarth of Smitten Beads is joining us for this challenge and is contributing these gorgeous lengths of sari silk.

I’m sure you’ll agree with me that these are pretty cool challenge packs and they’ll be available at a cost of £12 GBP plus shipping (£2.50 GBP UK/ £3.75 GBP Overseas) per set to 20
lucky people who will be randomly selected from their comments on this post and Caroline’s challenge post. If you win a spot in the challenge you will receive a surprise package containing one flower focal set, one bird bead set and a length of sari silk which you can use with beads from your own
stash to create as many pieces as you like and then join us for the blog
hop on Wednesday 16th April.

So, do you fancy trying your luck..? silly question – of course you do…! 
All you have to do to enter is comment on this post or on Caroline’s challenge blog post but please note – you must be willing to take part in the blog hop on Wednesday 16th April. There are are lots of ways you can increase your chances
of winning too… do any of the following and leave an additional comment each time and you will get an extra entry for each one:
Don’t forget to leave a separate comment for each method to maximise your chances though!

The draw will close at 8pm GMT on Wednesday 26th February
and I will randomly select and announce the winners on Friday 28th February. Winners will be sent an e mail asking them to forward payment in Great British Pounds to my Paypal address – payments should be made as quickly as
possible to ensure beads are shipped in good time. We will aim to have all packs shipped by Monday 10th March which will allow five plus weeks for delivery and design.

It’s as simple as that so good luck and I’ll see you back here on the 28th and hope you’ll be with us for the big reveal.

Oh, and I’ll also be adding some similar pieces to my shop in the near future so watch out for announcements about that.

  1. Oh my oh my this does truly look like Spring these are stunning components to work with – I am already fan's of both Etsy shops and pages so I will share this competition on my Facebook Page (fingers and toes crossed).

  2. And, on Google+ Share, I also sent off my Jewel School Friends post:

    Catch Spring Fever! A beautiful Design Challenge & Blog Hop with Gossiping Goddess and BlueberriBeads featuring THEa Elements ceramics, BlueberriBeads ceramics, & Smitten Beads sari silk in confluence! Sign-Ups Close Today! " xxoo Rita

  3. On my blog, I have an Etsy widget featuring a gallery of various artists' work (rather than my Etsy).

    I added Etsy items from BlueberriBeads, THEa Elements, & THEa Jewellery to the gallery 🙂

    You'll see your work & Caroline's work in the gallery in the right side column of my blog.

  4. So, on Google+ I also shared Claire's "Smitten Beads" blog, writing:

    "Smitten Beads has a blog too! I'm adding to my reading list 🙂

    Smitten Beads is working in confluence with BlueberriBeads & the Gossiping Goddess to bring us a beautiful design challenge & blog hop. Read about it here:

    Enjoy! xxoo Rita"

  5. (My computer stopped & I had to reload, so I'm not sure if this is pending already, my apologies:)

    I already like & am following BlueBerriBeads on Facebook.

    In fact, it is how I saw the most fab little house & recently bought it for my bead swap with the admin of BeadSwapUSa! She collects little houses and LOVES her new bead. The second from the left is the one 🙂 https://www.facebook.com/Blueberribeads/photos/a.236341643056559.65812.188070501217007/729516033739115/?type=3&theater

  6. I created an Etsy treasury featuring items from THEa Elements, THEa Jewellery, and BlueberriBeads. The treasury description includes a link to the blog hop:

    "Catch spring fever with beautiful items from THEa Elements, THEa Jewellery, and BlueberriBeads. This treasury celebrates the art of Lesley Watt and Caroline Dewison, in honor of their Spring Fever Design Challenge and blog hop with Smitten Beads. http://t.co/o0EqSTNikK"


  7. Posted again on both my Fb pages and blogged and tweeted and liked loved everyones pages so here's hoping i have everything crossed,although it does make it rather hard to walk xx

  8. And last but not least, I sent out a wish, carried off by the winds of our pretty planet, swirling around Earth, from country to country, across oceans & open hearts, that all those who may catch SPRING FEVER from my posts have fun doing so! I had a blast sharing in all the creative ways I could think of this morning, lol.

    Fly well sweet wishes & friends,
