Fall giveaway!


Okay, here's the prize for this week's giveaway. One 'love never dies' heart pendant/link, a bronze bee coin, a cute dragon bead and a botanical link. To enter for this prize, suggest something I could make to auction off to help Andrew with his hospital bills. I saw that Paula Best has made an art piece and is auctioning it on ebay and I thought I'd do the same. Leave the suggestions (like a painting, a necklace, a one of a kind bezel, etc.) in the comments section to enter this giveaway. Thanks for playing!

How bout auctioning off a special art doll? I love that bee pendant. It's my favorite.

For My Sweet Daughter said...

Omg Lorelei a great suggestion. Your art dolls are amazing.
I was going to say something one of a kind or something from your book you could even include a signed copy of the book.

Lovely Charms!! I would love to bid on a painting! Wouldnt that be Grand to have one of your Mysterious paintings on a Wall! ox

Robin Pfeifer said...

I love all of your jewelry. It is all so inspiring! I especially love the artwork that you put into your sketchbook. I think a framed drawing of one of your "inspirations" would be very nice. Thank you for all that you do!

Carlene said...

I've always wanted one of your one of a kind bezels-the little animals inside are so amazing. I think a lot of folks would really be interested in owning one of your "one of a kind". I know I'd bid on it:)

I love all that you do Cynthia. No matter what, it will be grand. I think a painting would be really cool, but your dolls are mighty fine too.
Enjoy the day!

Perhaps one of the necklaces featured in your beautiful book? :)

AuntieAnnie said...

I was thinking one of the necklaces featured in your book, along with a signed copy of your book. The other thought I had was to create a special charm - with a portion of the proceeds going to Andrews cancer....also, could you work your site so that when someone bought something they had the option to donate an amount to your Andrew?

Those are wonderful, Cynthia. Of course since I make art dolls, I was thinking the same thing. I can also see a necklace with one of rose with mounds of beautiful fabric piled up & stitch with metallic threads.

On another note, I can't do eBay auctions but would love to donate one of my beaded beanie babies if someone could auction it off. I'd love to help with Andrew's medical. We are going through some medical stuff here at my house & I KNOW how expensive just the copays are.

My home email if someone wants to contact me for the beaded beanie information is

I love your art dolls and one-of-a-kind bezels, I would bid on either one!

Kinderhook said...

I just got an order from Andrew today and that's what's given me this idea. Could you make an eagle in some form? It is so symbolic of strength, beauty, and nature in all its grandeur. These things I think of for and about Andrew. His strength is going through this, the beauty of his work and written word, his love of nature. Perfect!! --SallyA

Diana P. said...

Either one of your necklaces or a fabulous one of a kind art doll. Everytime you post your art dolls I just fall in love with them.

Jen James said...

I vote to auction off a painting - and hopefully I can win it! A signed copy of your book would also be a great auction item too! That bee coin is amazing - love it! Happy day!

Kristen (Creative Stash) said...

Cynthia you are so talented and create everything with such love and inspiration that just about anything you create for an auction would do fabulously! since I'm a painter I vote for a painting but, your art dolls and jewelry are equally enchanting adding a signed copy of your book is a great idea too.

quiltingjewel39 said...

So many great suggestions. I love your drawings also - one of those would be nice. I loved the idea someone had for an eagle also. Honestly, I would bid on anything you made especially for Andrew.

Cindy Gimbrone said...

My heart goes out to Andrew! He is such a special person, his personality radiates through his blog and designs. I'll keep him in my thoughts.

How about borrowing the idea of the prayer wheel and/or the prayer flags and creating a bead or necklace (you decide) that would send out prayers and well wishes to Andrew? The wearer would be sending out good thoughts and prayers each time s/he wore your design. If you created a limited edition bead, then you could host several auctions as I'm sure Andrew's well wishers are numerous. I certainly would bid on anything you created to help him with his bills.

I, like everyone one else love all of your work. they make me believe that all things are possible and that love abounds. I for one would to see one of the little paintings that you made for the "key" locket necklace. Also, a book would be wonderful!!

I'd love to see a painting auctioned off, but I think a necklace will draw more bidders.

Alice said...

Oh so difficult to choose. But a necklace with a one of a kind pendant would be my choice.

Carol said...

The first thing I thought of was a doll. I'm sending healing prayers to Andrew.

Sabine said...

The first thing I thought of was a doll, as well. But one of your beautiful necklaces would be fabulous as well.

Anything you choose will be fabulous.

I feel I don't know what would do best at an auction. Don't have the funds to bid myself. But all things you do are fab so I'm sure it'd do well, regardless what you choose.

Want to wish you -- and Andrew -- the best of luck with the auction!

Maybe you could auction off the right to work with you in the creation of one of your one-of-a-kind bezels. In other words, if the winner wants a pomegranate with the letter W on it--or whatever--that's what you'd make. It could get a little tiresome on your end, but I think your followers would be attracted by the idea.

Best of luck to you and Andrew.

I really do think you make the most remarkable one of a kind bezels--who wouldn't want one? There is NOTHING like them! Please consider making one with Anrew in mind. I know it will be especially beautiful!

love, jean

Lucid Moon Studio said...

Any one-of-a-kind item would do well, I think. A necklace, art doll or special bezel. Glad to see everyone coming together to help Andrew, it's a great thing!

Katie said...

definately one of your paintings.

Anonymous said...

A bezel or a piece with a spiritual warrior motif for Andrew..... I had NO idea what he is going through. Sending much love and healing thoughts. I look forward to the auction to help out.....Lisa

Hannah said...

Hmmm...maybe a piece of jewelry with a one of a kind or limited edition bead or charm.

Best wishes to you and Andrew,

Hannah

Rebecca said...

I know I have missed this giveaway, but just wanted to suggest that you could auction off one of your pieces from the book? They are all so lovely! I recently bought some of the lock and key charms from Andrew and there was definitely an extra thrill seeing them in your book!
