The first giveaway is held by Beth - click here to get to her blog. She made such a great giveaway package that I am sure every crafter would love to have. Thank you Beth for doing this! :) I have only been following her blog for a short while, but I really like it. I think her crafts are really amazing and she also posts weekly tutorials on her blog. Isn't that great?! You really should have a look at her blog if you haven't already.
The second giveaway can be found here. Aren't the items you can win just amazing? Just imagine all the things you could do with with those papers etc. I already have tons of ideas. lol
If you want to enter these giveaways too, great. But if not, just pay a visit to these blogs and maybe you'll find some ideas for your next craft project. :)

And here are the promised pictures of the cards I made (for larger view click on the picture) …
The two angel cards (the quality if one picture isn't the best, I'm sorry about that)
Cards with cookie recipes – I printed the recipe for cookies and placed it on the card. I decorated the cards with ginger men/candy cane and matching paper.
I had a couple sheets of Christmas paper and I cut out the pictures and made cards with them. Here are the results …
Let it shine … Here are two of the shiny/sparkly cards I made this year.
And some other cards.

For this card I used dark green cardstock, light yellow paper, patterned green paper and a piece of patterned gold cardstock out of which I made a tree. The tree is glued to the green patterned paper with double sided 3D foam pads so that gives the card some sort of 3D look. Around the green patterned paper I added gold border stickers and around the bottom of the yellow paper I wrapped a green ribbon with gold stars.

Here you can see a red and white ring which is made of seed beads and glass leaf-shaped beads.
Here's the once in brown and gold tones ...
here, but the middle part is my own creation. Here is the closer look on the middle part ...

These earrings are made out of the beautiful shiny wax beads in two different sizes, seed beads and and glass beads. Because of their shape and shiny (but not too shiny) looks, these earrings are great for every occasion.
These earrings are small but sweet. They are made out of wire, glass beads, seed beads and slightly bigger wax beads which I used in the middle.
These flowery looking earrings are made of wire and two smaller beads

I love music. I like to listen to it all the time, except when I'm reading or studying. But any other time, I say a big YES to music. Especially if it's rock or pop. Those are my favourite genres. But you could serve me pretty much everything. I'm not THAT picky. The only genres I really can't listen to (at least not more than a minute or two) are rave (it gives me headache) and jazz (it's just too depressing). But as said, my favourite is rock music (and pop). But metal, country ... is great too. ;)
Every once in a while I have this one song that I just can't get it out of my head and I want to listen to it all the time. Right now that's Michael Buble's "Everything". With such beautiful lyrics this song is perfect for daydreaming (something I really like to do :P). If you don't know it, you really should listen to it (and while you're at it, I suggest you check out his other songs too ;)). Here's the video:

A short while ago I was invited to someone's 50th birthday party. I knew what I was going to wear, but I didn't have any jewelry (except earrings) that would go with my outfit. So it was time to finally get all those boxes with beads out again and make something. And here's what I made ...
