A Birthday Celebration Contest


Since both Dave and I are celebrating our birthdays this month, we thought we would have some fun with a contest.

I recently joined the Art Fire Canadians Guild and discovered Patricia from VerreDesign who is having a really unique promotion.  I like her idea so much we decided to do something similar and give it a try.

We will be giving away a $25 gift certificate** to use towards anything listed in our 2 Good Claymates Art Fire Studio, 2 Good Claymates Beadshop on Etsy or our 2 Good Claymates Beadshop on Art Fire.    To enter, here is what you have to do:

For One Entry (mandatory):
Visit our main Art Fire Studio or Etsy Shop and then come back here and post a comment telling us which pieces you like the most.  Include your e-mail address in your post so we will have a way to contact you if you win.  Please note that you do not have to have a blog to leave a comment or become a follower -- anyone can enter.

For Extra Entries:

ONE more entry if you become a follower on our blog.
     (Already a follower?  You automatically qualify for this extra entry.)

TWO more entries if you become a fan on our Facebook.
     (Already a fan?  You automatically qualify for these two extra entries.)

THREE more entries if you blog about this contest on your own blog and include a link to this contest and a link to either our 2 Good Claymates Art Fire Studio or our 2 Good Claymates Bead Shop on Etsy and comment here with the link to your blog.

FIVE more entries if you make a purchase from any of our 3 shops:

and then come back here and make a comment linking to the item(s) purchased.  You will also get 3 extra entries for each additional item purchased (remember that shipping is charged on the first item only but if you would like to order something from each shop, e-mail us with your request and we can arrange one shipping charge for everything.)

By the way -- if you do purchase an item during this contest and happen to win, we can apply the $25 certificate towards that purchase if you like.

* * * * *

So there are quite a few ways to increase your chances of winning this contest!  And, to sweeten the deal a little more....   If we have more than 50 people enter, we will double your chance of winning and give away two $25 gift certificates**!

This contest is for one week only and closes on Saturday, September 12th, 2009 at 10:00 pm pacific standard time.  The winner(s) will be contacted by e-mail and they will have 48 hours to reply back and claim their prize.  If the winner(s) does not reply within that time frame, a new winner will be chosen.

**Note:  Gift certificate(s) are not redeemable for cash and expire on November 30, 2009.

Ooo, a contest! Fun!

I'm not sure what my favorite is- I really love the "Falling Leaves Earrings in Moss Green and Gold Findings", but I also think the "Gecko Brooch in Black & Olive Green" is adorable and such great colors!

I'm following your blog (well, I was before through bloglines- now I'm doing it through blogger, as well, so you can tell I'm following you) and I fanned you on Facebook.

I like the leaf beads, and I’m not usually a fan of animal print but I do really like the zebra buttons. I love this one and the similar designs (this one is my favorite).

And this gecko is my absolute favorite. He would be even better as a necklace pendant though.

You were in my favorites, now you’ve forced me with bribery to follow you publicly!
