It's that time again! Well, actually it is a bit overdue for me to do another drawing from my mailing list recipients. The lucky winner will receive this set of 6 handmade lampwork beads, just right for making a spring bracelet and earrings! Remember, to be eligible to win you have to be signed up to get my newsletter "Glassbits News". I'll pick a winner from my list on Jan. 31st so there is still time to sign up and be entered in this drawing.
On another note I read last night that the fund raising drive for Tanya's surgery expenses has raised the most amount of money in the shortest time. I believe that was posted by the pledge website owner. Nice to see the generosity of the artist community in action. If you're wondering what I'm referring to, read my previous blog post. Just over 2,000 more to go and she'll be able to have to this life saving surgery.
The more I hear stories like hers, the more I hate insurance companies. To deny people a procedure that will save their life is morally wrong in my book. They still deny surgeries that they call experimental even though these operations have been performed over 20 years. Its ridiculous, and the fact that our government here in the US lets them get away with it puts much of the blame on them too. Same with the situation involving our banking system today and the grand fiasco created by greedy financial executives while our political leaders stood by all the while catering to these idiots.
Anyway, enough of that crap, its too depressing to think about and I've got work to do. Adding more items to my etsy shop today.
Hope all is well with you and yours!
