Paper Beads Giveaway

In my post about my custom paper bead earrings I mentioned a website called paperbeads.org. The creative beader and generous spirit behind that site is Janice from Aubrey’s Beads. She contacted me with gratitude for mentioning her site and wanted to send me a thank you gift. She sent me a HUGE BOX full of some paper beads and some of her creations and now she wants to offer one of my readers a $75 gift certificate to use at her stores: Aubrey’s Beads or JaniceMae.etsy.com. Her creations and her use of color WOW me!

What is more remarkable then a giveaway is her story:

“One evening I was chatting with my sister who lives in the Philippines about paper beads and how I was experimenting with them. She is not into crafting like myself so what happened after our conversation was totally unexpected. She told me that after she put the phone down she gathered magazines and glue and started to make paper beads and worked on them until 3 a.m! From that time on she did not stop and together with her husband and 20 other enterprising men and women they make beautiful paper beads in all shapes and sizes. I am amazed at the kind of work they do and the quality of the paper beads. I sell them in my small bead store in downtown Glendora and in my online shop: www.aubreysbeads.com and www.janicemae.etsy.com. I donate part of the proceeds to buying school supplies for children in the poorest area of the Philippines. Most of these kids go to school without notebooks, paper or pencils. Below, is our very first donation of school supplies which benefited 300 children.”

Give a big welcome to Janice. She is also offering all IC readers 15% off at either store simply by mentioning Infarrantly Creative. Have confidence that when you purchase from her your money goes to help impoverished children in the Philippines. What a great cause!
