It’s Free Bling Friday Version 2009! Congrats to Free Bling Number 57 winner, Ellie B. from Orlando, FL. Ellie is a fellow blogger and mom of twins I met here in Blogland. Visit her blog here. Now, along with the new year comes a new version of Free Bling Friday! Free Bling Friday will now be the first Friday of the month, and you’ll be seeing more than earrings. Yeah, yeah, it’s still earrings today, just because I’ve been too lazy to take any new pictures, but you’ll see some new things pop up both here, in my website, and in my Etsy store this year. So for now, take a gander at January’s entry. These have been sitting on my workbench for weeks waiting for me to photograph them. Just a simple little pair with cloisonné beads and amethyst Swarovski crystals accented with 14K gold-filled findings. To be eligible to win January’s Free Bling, simply email me or leave a comment in the comment box by midnight Thursday, February 5, with the subject line FREE BLING and include where you're from. The next winner will be drawn Friday, February 6. Don't want to miss a single Free Bling Friday?
