StarZanite Giveaway

Lately, I've been lagging on my stitching. Thus, there is not enough progress on Garden Verses to warrant a photo. Instead, I’ve a newfound obsession hobby – beading. To be exact, I’ve been making beaded scissors fobs.
The stitching community has been more than generous to me and it's my turn to give a little back. Hence, of the five scissors fobs I made, I’ll be giving them all away. Yes, that’s right! There will be five winners :)
To be honest, I’m thinking of making more and perhaps selling some in the future if there’s enough interest. So I guess this giveaway is kinda a blatant “testing of the waters” if I may. I even have the name of my shop already in mind – StarZanite. I think it suits the glitter and sparkle of beads, don’t you think?
With that said, this will be the StarZanite Giveaway!
To be eligible for this giveaway, please...
  1. Leave a comment on this post only that you would like to be included and also state your favourite fob/s. (I rather the winners receive one to their liking if possible.)
  2. Post about this giveaway on your blog with a link to mine for a second entry. You can use the picture above.
  3. Become a Follower or let me know that you’re an existing reader of my blog for yet another chance to win!
Please also remember to leave a way for me to get in touch with you if you win. This giveaway will close in two weeks. Names will be drawn on 1 November 2010.
Here are more detailed photos for a clearer view. As you can see, I also gave each of them names ^.^
Tropical Jade
Grape Ink
Winter Cherries
Ocean Waterlilies
Desert Rose
This is my first attempt making beaded scissors fobs. As such, they are by no means perfect. I chose to use cell phone straps instead of lobster clasps because they are more flexible. (Think flash drive fobs, cell phone fobs, rear view mirror fobs, camera/camera case fobs, ornaments, etc... the possibilities are endless!) Moreover, it would not wear away your fine scissors finishing due to friction.
I really hope you like them. Opinions and comments welcomed.

Include me! Grape Ink - makes me think of my daughter who loves purple. She just got married (purple and green were her colors) and I miss her terribly as we will be moving and won't be able to see her very often. I like the idea of the soft connection to the scissors.
