GEOMETRIC BEADWORK BOOK CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY!

We have a very special giveaway post today courtesy of the lovely  Catherine , a longstanding member of our Facebook group and fantastic designer  Jean Power .

Here is what Catherine would like you to do to enter the giveaway:

"Hello all you lovely Stash Tacklers! As some of you may know, I somehow received 3 copies of Jean Power’s new book http://www.jeanpower.com/books/geometric-beadwork/, instead of the single one my husband ordered for my Christmas gift. Jean very kindly said I could keep the spare copies and pass them on. Sarah and the other admins have kindly agreed to my putting one up for a draw on the Blog, and the other copy will be given away on the FB group, so if you sign up in both there are 2 chances to win! There is a little game to play to make this more fun: I’d like you to complete the following sentence:
Dear Santa, I’ve been good and tackled my stash all year, but for Christmas I’d really, really like...
Money no object, find something beady (preferably) that you’d love to receive as a gift, and post a link in the comments to somewhere it can be found online. (Please also be sure that you include a way for Catherine to contact you if you win - Sarah)
A random draw will be made on 10th December and the blog winner will be notified shortly after.
I don’t mind shipping overseas, but would appreciate a contribution for the postal costs as they can be huge from UK, will negotiate with the winners. There is, sadly, no guarantee that the books will arrive in time for Christmas (depending on the locations of the winners).
And don’t forget, work from several group members is featured in the book so you’ll see your friends in print!

Love and Beads,

Catherine"

Thank you to both Catherine & Jean for giving us this fabulous giveaway!

Happy beading,

Sarahx

Dear Santa,
I've been very good this year at tackling my bead stash and for Christmas I would really like a bunch of 15's and 11's in quality beads instead of some of the junk ones I have. And of course I would love to win this book too. Thanks for the opportunity. Love ya Santa!
