Awesomeness Giveaway

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

I know, everyone is doing some kind of Giveaway, right?  My reason is twofold......to have someone enjoy some awesomeness and to hopefully be able to share my thoughts about "beads, life in general, and French stuff" to more of you.

I'm not asking for just a comment but a special kind of comment.......tell me about sharing and how you felt when you shared. 

What have your shared recently...
  • was it something you learned?

Hi Kitty, I am a follower of your blog, and have enjoyed reading your thoughts since I started following you! I loved your last post on packaging and presentation.....as for sharing I am doing the Pay It Forward 2011 on my blog right now, I haven't had a very big response but have enjoyed sending out my hand made goodies to the people that have responded! I have been sharing my love of beading with my grand kids lately, I have a big bin full of beads and stringing materials for them to create with, and we all love playing together!

I have recently been the recipient of a PIF(Pay It Forward) in a project on line. I have since helped several people in small ordinary ways, but it helped them at the time. I spend a great deal of time going out of my way to help others with small issues, but I always feel better for it. Imagine how wonderful the world would be if we helped each other in that one moment of need!
I am now a follower also.

Hi! I have been following your blog since bead soup party ;-) I read many older, very interesting posts, too :-)

Now, I had a lovely weekend with my 7 year old niece, I learned her to make her own jewelry, we also made lovely woven handbags for spring. I feel that sharing my knowledge and time helps and gives so much to both of us as also to her mother (i.e. my sister) when she is so busy with her job.
What a great giveaway you have!

Hi Kitty
Your blog is a beautiful place in the beading blogosphere - I think we like many of the same things, which was plain to see as soon as I clicked on your blog. :-) One thing I enjoyed sharing recently was some instruction in photo-editing. I'm absolutely no expert, but was able to help a friend with some basics. I'm a hands-on learner myself so I could appreciate the show 'n tell method of teaching!
Thank you for this generous give away! :-)

That is a whole lot of awesomeness! I have been following you since the Bead Soup Party as well, found so many cool bead blogs as a result. I enjoy baking goodies and bringing them into work to share with everyone. I also share my knowledge of things whenever I can. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

Sharing makes me feel that life in pain can be worth it.

Many of the beady things I've learned lately have been in French because I follow a lot of French (and Spanish and Hungarian) bead blogs. I love reading these blogs and getting an idea of what beaders across the world are doing. The French, in particular, share many bead weaving patterns.

Most of my sharing has been happening at work. I am a Spanish teacher and have a student teacher and mentor a 1st year teacher. Because my student teacher is teaching my classes, I have been running around doing projects that my coworkers might not have time to do. I am enjoying pitching in and getting to know teachers I didn't really know before.

Thanks for the give away!

Um, my brain is fogging over... (sorry, really sick) but I was walking through safeway earlier with my Dad and told him a sharing story so I'll tell you! LOL We were walking down the baby aisle and I saw some gummy treat thingys for babies and said "these taste amazingly good." Dad gave me the strangest look and I told him about my 3 yr old niece insisting on sharing them with me one time and since I wanted to encourage her sharing I tried them! I was nervous, but they tasted good :)

I also host giveaways on my blog every week! Come check out this week's :) http://tinyurl.com/62fu2sp

Hi there! You may be across the miles but you're never far from my mind and heart. I've been following you for years! I love watching you blossom here on your blog and your craft of making jewelry (oh boy, lots of beads and more!). Your site is absolutely lovely. I'm so happy to see how much you enjoy the love of sharing your art with others and how it gives back to you so-so-so-so much more. Since I don't make jewelry and am not as "crafty" these days, my sharing mostly is from teaching others the joys of bluebirding and bluebird conservation efforts. I recently gave a presentation (March 21, 2011) with a PowerPoint presentation and interesting displays to the 4-H Club teens at a local high school on bluebirds. I'll be assisting these kids in learning how to monitor a new bluebird trail installed at a local new resort in our county called Primland. It gives me such satisfaction knowing I can give in this way.

Hi Kitty
I recently donated over 100.00 worth of my art to a silent auction for battered, abducted children. I also cosigned a loan for a young man that is trying to get through his last year at seminary.

Hi! I am happy to follow your wonderful blog. One thing I am learning and sharing right now is to simply take joy in the process of creating. To not constantly compare your work to others on Etsy and in magazines, just relax, do what pleases you, and create your own beauty. True creation always has validity.
I'm also having fun teaching an older hippy how to surf the internet and use my computer. Fiercely non-technological, she has made business cards and discovered the wonders of Twitter. In exhange, I receive vegetables! Too much fun!

I think sharing is having the internal fortitude to be who you really are and dare to smile and let others "see" the real you. In that note, I've been practicing daily in my interactions with the folks I meet. Might be as simple as smiling at the harried mother who's trying to keep her kids in line while shopping, or smiling at someone who looks sad, letting someone go ahead of you at the check out or even just letting that other driver go first at the four-way stop sign. Simple stuff, but it makes me feel good.

What a great blog! I just became a follower and was looking thru some of your older posts.

What I have shared lately was my skills. One of the older ladies at work had her house broken into and she lost of a lot of jewelry so I made her up a pair of earrings and a necklace. Just the smile on her face when she opened the box was enough to give me a warm feeling all day.

I just became a blog follower. What beautiful beading goodies!

Last night, I shared laughter with my son as we played a game.

Hello Kitty! I love sharing, I always give my jewelry away.....more than I sell actually! Recently I gave jewelry for a good cause at work. To help a little boy get his service dog! I have been a follower for some time now of your blog, as you know since the Bead Soup party! Love your new look!

Warmly,
Leslie

Hello Kitty! I thought that I became a follower during the awesome Bead Soup Blog Party, but for some reason I had to refollow you ;) Anyway, I do alot of sharing with my two children, most recently it was sharing their sweet fun company with my ailing 94 year old grandmother.

Hi Kitty,

What I shared lately were my teaching skills. I helped mentor a student teacher. We both learned a great deal from each other! Our time together flew by.

Hi Kitty,
I work in emergency services. The other day we had a call to check on a 92 year old woman who lives alone. She was fine. However, she kept telling me about how she likes to feed the birds and watch them thru her windows, but said lately she hasnt been able to because we have had so much snow she could not get to her bird feeder. My partner and I decided to share our muscles (lol). We shoveled her a pathway from her back door right up to her bird feeder. She was so happy. What a sweet woman she was. For us it was no big deal, but for her I think it made a world of difference.
Thanks,
Breana
