Freebie Friday, Sept. 21, 2007 – Disney Beads!

Hello, everyone, and welcome to yet another Freebie Friday!

This week’s giveaway is open to everyone, in every country. It’s an item that’s a little hard to find, even here in the States – Disney beads!

Freebie Friday - Disney California Adventure Beads
(Click for larger image.)

These beads were only available at Disney Theme Parks. I was gifted a number of them by a special source, and since I have duplicates, I’m offering a set of 15 designs, all unique, as this week’s Freebie.

The beads are all flat circles made of ceramic. They’re about 3/4 of an inch in diameter, and a touch over 1/4 of an inch in thickness. The holes run horizontally relative to the designs, and easily accomodate cords up to 2 mm thick.

This particular set of images are all related to Disney’s California Adventure Theme Park. Some are logos for rides; some are characters associated with the park. All designs are identical on the front and the back of the beads.

If you’re a Disney collector, or have kids who love anything even remotely related to Disney, these would be great fun for you! I’ll throw in a couple of one yard lengths of 2mm waxed linen cord with the beads, so you can wear them right away if you like.

These rare beads could be yours, just for a comment and/or a link! It’s this easy to enter:

  • All readers are eligible for entry to this drawing, including international mailing addresses.
  • Enter by commenting to the contest post before Noon, Eastern Time, on Monday, Sept. 24th. Only one entry per person for commenting.
  • Earn a second entry by posting about the contest on your own blog, and linking to this post. E-mail me at fiber AT folkcatart DOT com to tell me you’ve done so. Don’t forget to post soon enough that your own readers have a chance to join in the fun!
  • Have you won a prize at Crafting Jen before? No worries, you can enter again!
  • The winner will be chosen by a random drawing from all entries received before the deadline.
  • I’ll announce the winner on the blog on Monday, and will also e-mail them for their mailing address.

That’s it for Freebie Friday this week – I’ll post later about my knitting progress. Meanwhile, best of luck to everyone on the drawing!

Sweet Swag! Cartoon-a-licious. Put my name in, please!

My monitor has up and blown up, so I may seem “away” alot for awhile (sharing a puter w/hubby sucks, that’s why we have two . . . lol).

Seriously, my monitor started doing the strangest thing I’ve ever seen and I was fixed in horror on that, and my husband was yelling turn it off when I said something, and I didn’t know what he was referring to so I tried turning off the computer, but then I saw the smoke, because then I could SMELL it -GEEZ that’s HORRIBLE stuff (probably toxic, too.)

Shut it off and pulled stuff on desk away in case it lit on fire (it was THAT close to going up). Any more smoke thickness than there was and I would have said it WAS on fire in there.

Sorry, I should blog about it, just shooken up, here.

Cool beads! My Disney Princess daughter would be so excited! We actually went to Disney with Daughter #1 but haven’t been back since Disney Princess arrived.
