Recently I celebrated my birthday. I see a lot of people around me who are getting frustrated when the date is approaching. On the contrary, I am always looking forward, since it’s the perfect time to get together and enjoy each other’s company with my loved ones. This year I spent my birthday with my husband, biking around Amsterdam, dining and talking. And I received many kind messages which made me happy, since I live far away from most of my friends, my sister and my mum.
My family asked me a month ago what kind of gift would make me happy. Unfortunately the one I would like the most (for them to visit me here in Amsterdam, so I can show them my life here) will not come true in this year.
However, even if I prefer time spent together instead of material things there is something which always makes me happy: a good book to read or even better, to learn new beading techniques from! I have my eye on Melanie de Miguel’s Hubble stitch books for example.
Since I would like to celebrate with you, and giving is better then getting,
I decided to organize a contest.
One lucky beader will get a beading book from me as a gift!
Hope you like the idea – you can even tell me which book would you like to receive. You can enter the contest below.
YOU CAN CHOOSE ANY BEAD-RELATED BOOK AVAILABLE ON AMAZON.
The contest is now over, you can find out who won the book here.
If you don’t want to miss your chance to win something valuable next time and to get a bunch of free beading tutorials, sign up to the VIP Jewelry Maker Club here.
Thanks for playing with me.
Have fun beading!
