I have been doing some giveaways lately! And my latest one is ending in just a few days. Check it out here.
This time I'm giving away this mother & child glass pendant in bright blues (it started around Mother's Day so that affected my choice).

This giveaway is part of an "Ultimate Fan Giveaway" and it's a different approach for me, but I thought I'd try it out. It's a group thing, part of Crochet Addict's celebration of reaching 7,000 fans on her blog. Wow, that's impressive!

There are several possible prizes, including mine shown above, and every entry is a chance to win. Go to this link for entry instructions, but the basics are: follow the sites of the artists doing the giveaway (blogs, facebook pages, etc.) and then leave a comment on the original blog post about it.

So, what's the point of doing a giveaway? For me, it's a combination of exposure, networking, and the joy of giving a little piece of my work to a fan or potential fan. I hope they enjoy it and tell others about it... or, give me constructive feedback. And here's the thing, glass is a passion but not a full time gig, so I don't have a lot of time for the promotional stuff, and a giveaway is fairly easy and good for networking. Will I do more giveaways? Absolutely! Follow my Facebook page for announcements about future giveaways and other stuff (don't worry about more clutter in your newsfeed, I only post a few times a week at the most). I hope to see you there!
