It's a giveaway! To celebrate an impending milestone in my Etsy shop, I'm going to be having a giveaway here on my blog.

The milestone may not seem obvious to everyone, but I'm approaching my 3333rd sale!!! The number 3 has special meaning for me, so I decided that was an event worth celebrating. My husband, whose birthday is 3/3, is exactly 3 years and 3 days younger than I am; and our birthdays are 3 days apart
(except in Leap Years, of course). During the course of our time together, we noticed all sorts of other 3s cropping up; so it became an important number.





Anyway, here's the deal to be entered for the giveaway:

1. Visit my Etsy shop, time2cre8.etsy.com.

2. Find something in my shop that relates to the number 3. There's a lot to choose from -- it could be a piece of artwork that features three of something; a beadweaving technique listed in the description; the listing date for a particular piece... it just needs to relate to the number 3 somehow.

3. Come back here and leave a comment, and include what you chose from my shop that relates to 3 (make sure to leave your contact information so I can let you know if you won).

That's it. It's really easy!

On September 15, I'll choose a winner.
Yes, I know the 15th isn't technically a 3, but it all fits:
- September is the 9th month (3x3)
- 15 is divisible by 3
- If you add the 1 and 5, you get 6, also divisible by 3.
- If you add 9, 1, and 5, you get 15...

See how that all works out? Anyway, the winner will be chosen from among the qualifying comments, using a random number generator. Wouldn't it be a hoot if the RNG chose 3? Or 33? :-)

The all-important question... what do you win? For this giveaway, the prize is this beadwoven bracelet. It's woven with Czech glass beads in THREE colors. It was woven in peyote stitch, and the center portion is braided. The bracelet measures 3/4" wide and it will fit a 6" or smaller wrist.


Good luck!

I choose this one: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14755520 with the kitty who is obviously NOT getting THREE square meals a day LOL

We have a 33 pound kitty living in our house (fat camp!) that belongs to my parents whose expression bears a strong resemblance to your ACEO kitty ;)

I love the alice cards--I'm hoping that the fact that there are 12 of them--a multiple of 3--counts?

Also, if you'd like to list this on the etsygiveaways blog just let me know--I'm happy to add you as an author--you can convo me where to send the invite via etsy (purrprints.etsy.com)--that's also the best way to reach me if i'm lucky enough to win this gorgeous bracelet!

This is a brilliant idea, but I didn't want to pick something that everyone else would so.... I picked http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8648295 (Bright Right Triangles - Beadwoven Peyote Bracelet (2796)) because in the photo with the clasp, you can only see 3 black triangles! :)

Hi there, (which is you rearrange the letters it spells three)

Right now your shop has had 3418 which if you divide by 3 you get 1139.333333 quite a few 3's if you ask me.

I went to your bracelet section which has 105 items which is divisible by 3 equalling 35. so I went to item 35 in the bracelet section. Which is the Lilac Labyrinth Peyote Bracelet. How neat!

When growing up I had a Labyrinth game which I loved. You know, roll the marble around the board, trying to miss the holes. Purple is my new favorite color.

so after that set of three's I'm done!

Thank you for this opportunity!
