Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive, we offer a prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard and tell us what you think. The following week a winner is chosen at random from all eligible entries.
Congratulations to Blue Kiln Beads!
You have won a mystery bundle from Claire's latest bead making marathon!
If spending three days soaking up my beadmaking knowledge and creating jewelry sounds like a little slice of heaven, stop on over and read all the details. I only have a few spaces left and would love to have an Art Bead Scene reader or two join me!
So on to the giveaway - your favorite part right? At my first retreat I created little name plates for everyone's door. It was a small touch but it was appreciated. I also put together a little fall inspired gift bag with beads from a few of my friends and treats I picked up a bead shows during the year. My first year I even created a little creative scavenger hunt booklet - I should do something like that again!
My question - what little surprise or extra touch would mean a lot to you at a bead retreat? Help me brainstorm some ideas.
One lucky random reader will be picked from the comments for a $25 gift certificate to Humblebeads.com.
---- On a side note: can I tell you how much I love reading all your thoughtful comments on our Inside the Studio posts! I really loved reading about your color combinations last week on Claire's post. You guys are so inspiring. Love ya to pieces!!!!
