Maybeads Etsy Giveaway *CLOSED*

Maybeads Etsy Giveaway *CLOSED*


Today's Etsy Giveaway is for a Cupcake Stretchy Necklace from Maybeads! ($15)



How cute is this necklace? I love that little cupcake! :) Here's some more info on it:
"It's a handmade cupcake bead that has been wire-wrapped with a pink "cherry" seed bead on top. It hangs from a fun, black stretchy cord. These are great for little girls and tweens."

Here's some more info on the woman behind Maybeads:

1. First things first, tell us a little more about yourself...

Hi! My name is Lauren Mazursky, and I am a fairly new lampwork bead artist. I live in a suburb of Chicago with my husband and three kids, ages 12, 9 and 5. We have a dog named Chunky and two cats, whose names are Buzz and Newman.

2. What is your regular job?

My regular job is being a stay-at-home mom. Up until a year and a half ago, I waited tables at night. Before that I was a newspaper reporter, but that was before I had kids.

3. Do you Haiku?


Toilet paper bead

Can you please please spare a square?

Sorry, I can not


4. What inspires you?

There are so many things that inspire me! I especially love to make "critter" beads, so animals are a huge inspiration. I will try them in every color combo I can think of! Also, my kids and their enthusiasm for my beads are especially inspiring. They are at perfect ages to enjoy them, and they get all my "orphan" beads. I also love to see people (mostly it's kids) wearing my beads and stretchy necklaces. I find that the most gratifying of all.

Note from Katie:
*Okay, best haiku ever or what?*
