kate5kiwis: On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas

we have a *GIVEAWAY*!!!!!
this is a seriously gorgeous
*Christmas wreath bracelet*

i wear one that i made with black satin ribbon and i've had eleventy billion ooohs and aaahs over it - "where did you get that?" (katie *made it self*) "oooh, you should sell those!" etc.

so in the spirit of Christmas i am giving one away - you can *keep it self* or give it to a speshal person - and if you're a kiwi, it'll be in your hot little hands by Christmas - but of course we're going global with the giveaway!

this bracelet has ten *sparkly* big fat luscious 1.5cm clear glass-cut acrylic beads and is threaded with Christmas Red satin ribbon, hand-knotted between each bead. it's adjustable - wherever ya tie the bow!

just leave me a comment here and i'll draw a winner for the
*Christmas wreath bracelet* on The Twentieth Day of Christmas!

i wanna spend a day of Christmas at your house!!

lovely bracelet. we are Christmas spiritless around here. that's not exactly true, but our box of Christmas that we shipped didn't arrive. so all of the kids ornaments are lost. the homemade stockings and any other traditional decorations we put out and about to make us feel holly and jolly. not with us. so we're starting from scratch! almost done with the stockings. our new decorating traditions have a definite "thai" feel.

The twentieth! That's the day Mark comes home from Hot Springs! So, it could be my lucky day! :)

It's a lovely Christmassy bracelet, Kate. Good of you to spread Christmas cheer, when so many of us feel kind of blah this year. :P

is it cheating to enter lots of comments to increase one's chances of winning the bracelets?
it DOES make your blog look evah-so-popular and your gorgeous work look evah-so-desired when peeps scroll down and see that SO many people have commented, heehee...
