    ReplyDelete

  5. Wow! What a great stash of beads! I'd love to get all of it ;) but it might be more fun to split it up... increase the chances!

    ReplyDelete
  6. What a great stash - unfortunetly I'm living in Germany but I would gladly pay the postage if you enter me:-) The beads are so gorgeous - especially the blue and turquoise and greens and the...

    ReplyDelete
  7. Wow awesome giveaway! ^_^ I think you should split the giveaway. That way their will be less sad people. Love your blog! ^_^ I'm going to go post this on my blog. I'll email you the link like you asked. Thank you for having this giveaway! ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  8. Steufel - Any idea what it would cost to send a 7.5 to 8 pound parcel to Germany? I have no idea. I hate to make you pay postage - I bet it would be really expensive. If you check it out - and want to pay the postage I will enter you.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wow! Split it 6 ways! Better odds for me!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm overwhelmed by your generosity and torn about how to split it. The little dragon devil on my shoulder wants to hoard, but I know how much fun it would be for six people each to win a wonderful collection of beads. Go for the split!

    I'm following and will blog about your giveaway at http://loismoon.blogspot.com

    -mil gracias,

  11. Blogged and it will appear tomorrow.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow Denise!!!! You are most generous here for sure! Keep it all together - that's a little chunk of shipping $$$ for you to consider if you split.

    ReplyDelete
  13. What a tremendous giveaway! I've only seen this sort of destash up for sale on the infamous auction site!

    My vote? I gotta confess that I'm a bead addict and seeing all those beads makes me want them all. But my saner side prevails and I think splitting up the loot six ways would be more fun--there's certainly enough to go around and enough of each color to split six different ways!

    Spread out the happiness!

    I'm now following and will be posting about the give away shortly on my blog!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow! That is one huge pile of beads, M'am! I'd love to see them all in one place but I so think splitting them up would be a great way to share the beady love.

    ReplyDelete
  15. An amazing pile of beads! I'd be bowled over to be the recipient, but I think that splitting it 6 ways would be ideal for sharing the love.

    (By the way, as a follower I'm listed as Diffusive Design).

    ReplyDelete
  16. the beadaholic in me says one big giveaway (to me), but it breaks down into such nice groups.... so I say 6 happy winners

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have blogged about this wonderful give away!

    ReplyDelete
  18. WOWZA! You are a truly generous soul. I am SWOONING with delight over this horde. I am all for everyone wins, but I think that one winner would be outstanding. But I love it when everyone can challenge themselves to come up with something special with this bead soup. So whatever you decide will be most generous. I am giving away something new today in honor of summer...come over and visit!
    Enjoy the day!

  19. What an amazing gift. I would love all of it, but that would be selfish! You should split it up so many can share in the fun.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Fabulous giveaway, one of the best I've seen in ages. Seems most are in favor of splitting the prize as that increases one's chance of winning at least a portion of these gorgeous beads and findings. I am going to follow you on both blogspot and on NetworkedBlogs...would love it if you could check out my blog and maybe give me a new NetworkedBlog follower (it could certainly use more).

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hey Denise, I am speechless. I am living in Germany, but will be visiting my family in the US in the next two month, so maybe you would accept my sister-in-laws shipping address in the surprising case I won? I am following you and will write a post about this giveaway right now. I would absolutely want all beads, but I think this is too selfish, so I would go for splitting it up. Thanks for thinking about including me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Amazing. I say split 6 ways, more fun for all. You pick the combos of course. Can't wait to see the outcome!

    ReplyDelete
  23. What an awesome group of beads!! While I think it would be great to win them all - probably splitting them up would make more people happy!! Thank you for whichever you do. I am a follower.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow! What a great giveaway! I'd love to be selfish and say one big giveaway, but 6 would increase chances of winning, and be much more fair. :) So I say 6 giveaways. The beads are gorgeous!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow, I can't believe you are doing this. I myself am drooling over the whole stash but in the spirit of Bead Soup, I think you should split it into 6 giveaways. This would give more changes to win. I myself want the turquoise package hehehe. I love your idea and what a way to celebrate Bead Soup.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I vote for sharing the beady love and diving the stash 6 ways!

    ReplyDelete
  27. holy cow, are you drunk or insane or something?? That is a ton of loot! You know I am a follower, baby! While I would love to win the entire stash, I'd have a better shot at something if you split it into 6 giveaways, so I vote for that.
    Erin

    ReplyDelete
  28. Just had to let you know that I've blogged about your giveaway, bragged on one of threadkiller sites, and emailed a couple of bead addict friends! *grins* I know this hurts my chances for winning, but this is just too good to keep to oneself!

    ReplyDelete
  29. oooooooooo what beautiful art dolls these would make!!! Awesome giveaway!
    By the way.... I sent a photo submission of ~Blossom~ in :) Thank you for the motivation!
    Many Blessings to You,
    Summer

    ReplyDelete
  30. OK Denise, I just blogged about this and for the record have elevated your status far above Santa and the Bunny:D Thanks again for doing such a sweet and generous giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow I am in! I will post your give away on my blog. http://libbyleu.blogspot.com/ Such a beautiful collection of beads.
    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think one person would love to have it all but it's so much nicer if 6 different people could win! Also, it increases everyone's chances to win! Beautiful giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I enjoyed looking at the beads and they're are fabulous! I live in Germany, too, so no way to participate.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hmm, I agree that keeping it all together would ease your shipping costs, but it would be fun to spread the wealth... maybe split the difference and split it two or three ways??

    What a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow Denise! Those are some of the most beautiful beads I've ever seen. While I would love to win all of them (if I won), I think you should have 6 separate drawings....make 6 people very happy! I put a link to you on my blog. Thanks for doing such an awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Its a great stash and I vote for splitting it up into 2, 3 or 6 lots.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Please pick me pick me pick me pick me! Definitely split - makes for more happy beaders :-) Will put a link on my blog tonight (since I am sneaking a peak at bead soup while at work right now :-))

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow, I would be in a good mood if I won those beads! But I like to share so I vote for splitting them up!

    ReplyDelete

  40. Excuse me while I pick my jaw back up off my keyboard and wipe the spit that has puddled on the keys......

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow!!! That's a lot of beads! I would like to say split them up, so there would be more winners, but I selfishly want the whole lot!! Will blog and be back with a link! Off to hit your follow button as well :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like the idea of splitting this treasure trove up - more chances for everyone. I live in Canada but my sister-in-law lives in CA and is coming to visit later in July and has agreed to be my "bead mule" again this year.

    ReplyDelete
  45. WOW!! What an amazing giveaway!!! I will blog about this on my blog, and am now a new follower! Split it up - and the winners can trade beads if they want to mix or match more colors!! you are too generous!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sooo much eye candy....sensory overload in progress. I say split it and if you can send some my way that would be great! Love all the colors!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow this is an awesome give away! I am a follower. And I think you should split it up that way more people can share in the fun.

    I plan to blog about it and will send you the link.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ok! I'm in and crossing my fingers! What a stash. I also feel splitting them up would be best, that way more are in on the frenzy!

    ReplyDelete
  49. wow! that is the most generous give-away I ever saw!!!
    can't decide if you split it up or not, it would be amazing to win the whole lot!

    ReplyDelete
  50. The little devil in me also says "keep it all together" but the good prevails and it would make 6 people sooo happy. Thanks for the opportunity to win

    ReplyDelete
  51. Psst...Lorelei sent me and now I am following you. I am in awe of your amazing generosity with your beads and yarn. I would be happy with a portion of this gorgeous array of beads and therefore am thinking it should be 6 lucky winners. I am drooling over the creative designs running through my mind with your beads. Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to win. I will blog this too.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I am going to say split it even though I want it ALLLL! I will contact you with a link when I blog.

    ReplyDelete
  53. What a generous and lovely selection of amazing finds... My heart is beating quickly, my fingers are itching to touch it... What joy you are bringing! I am always about sharing the love. My vote is to break it up between 6 people! Thanks for your generosity.
    Peace, Kris

    ReplyDelete
  54. Denise, may I enter if I pay the postage?!! What an amazing giveaway! I would go for six ways personally, it's so nice to give so why not do it over 6 times? No worries if I am not allowed to enter, such a generous giveaway! Whoever wins will be so lucky!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Please view http://createology.blogspot.com to see I shared your giveaway on my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wowza! If this is only part of your stash I would love to see the whole thing!!!!!!

    While it would be so awesome to win this entire bounty of beads, I think it should be divided between six people--spread the love, ya know.

    I'm a follower of your lovely blog.

    ReplyDelete
  76. This is awesome! I love working with beads. I add them to my handmade art glass of my paintings. These beads would really give my collection a boost! I am adding you to my blog post. I would love to be a "bead hog" and get them ALL!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Amazing giveaway! While I would love to have all of these
    beads myself, I think it would be fun to split them up. I
    read about your give away on lorelie's blog and had to visit!
    Great blog!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Holy moly, that is one big giveaway. I think you should spread the love and give away prizes to several people. I'll post something about it on my blog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Well, I don't have a blog, but I did share it on facebook. :)

    And I like it all going to one person, because you're bound to get something you really really like if you take the whole pile. Plus, it looks more like a pile o' Pirate booty in one fell swoop. So to speak. :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Awesome stash! And the giveaway is the day before my 44th birthday! What a lovely birthday surprise it would make!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Wow this is fantastic. I blogged you http://porcelainart.blogspot.com/2010/06/bead-giveaway.html

    And I followed you.

    This is a really wonderful and generous thing you are doing. I do think splitting it up would be best this is just too much to go to one person although that would be awesome too. But I say split it up then more people can win and have a great windfall. Even split 6 ways this is an incredible giveaway for each person.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  83. What an amazing and generous giveaway! Wow! I think you ought to split it up - spread around the beady joy a little bit!

    Can't wait to see your Bead Soup piece! My big reveal is on Saturday, too!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hello! I blogged about this wonderful giveaway! http://madmaggiedesigns.blogspot.com/
    Thank you so much for this! Beautiful beads! And of course the selfish part of me says give it all away to one winner......but 6 gives an even better chance! We are lucky either way!

    Warmly,
    Leslie

  85. Nice site you have- just subscribed via bloglines! I think splitting it up and spreading the joy would be best!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I think I agree with everyone else, as much as my greedy bone would LOVE to have that whole stash, it would probably be better to make 6 people happy instead,LOL I don't have ablog but it is posted to my facebook page, my website and my beadspace, beading arts & crafts & bead jewelry making groups.

    ReplyDelete
  87. This is so generous. I cannot wait to see all the bead soup party's finished products. Should it all be one big giveaway or split it up? That's a tough one. What if you split it in half? I will definitely blog this one to my readers!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Bake the Beans YES, I want to enter! I think you should divide it into 6 different wins. So six people win and not just one! Let first choice pick the color they want. I am off to put this on my blog and tell others!

    SO.. I believe in sharing the wealth!! I think you should split it up for many winners and make a lot of people happy not just one.
    Thanks so much and I hope I am included!

  101. FABULOUS! Any way you split it up will be fun to win.:)

    ReplyDelete
  102. Okay, so I'm following you (in GoogleReader); I'm leaving a comment; and I posted this on my blog (http://craftyhope.blogspot.com/2010/06/first-steps-and-giveaway.html)

    Here's hoping I'm a lucky girl!!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Wow, What a great haul! I'd love to be the recipient of the whole thing, but I am not selfish -- so you can divide it 6 ways.

    I'll be your follower too.

  104. I think you should leave it all as one set.

    I blogged about it here: http://obtainingmercy.typepad.com

    Thanks for your generosity. It is really an amazing contest.

  105. I say "all for one"...but wait...maybe i'm not the one? So maybe a split? I'm following and blogging:)

    ReplyDelete
  106. I'd like to see the whole kit and kaboodle go to one lucky winner. I know it cuts the odds of winning, but then it would be the Bead Giveaway that Shook the World....

    Oh yeah, and I blogged about it here:

  107. Wow- what a give away! I am a new follower of your blog and am excited to be a follower. I would love to be the winner of all the beads but it would also be fun for six people to win part of the loot.

    ReplyDelete
  108. What's left to say?! There's no complete way to describe this luscious stash!! Tough choice, 1 or 6. I think if the good triumphs in each of us, and it's there, we would gladly share 6 ways. Then the 6 winners can have a private Bead Soup Party, LOL! Thank you!

  109. hi denise,

  110. This is a new venture for me -- I think I did it correctly. A give away is a fun enterprise. I would be happy with one portion or all but perhaps it would be good to "share the wealth with more than one winner" -- That said -- I would prefer to win beads and not fiber since I don't use that medium.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Hi Denise - I heard about you from Nan at Spirit Rattles. I have put your give-away on my blog and signed up to follow yours (which is fantastic, by the by). I think it would be great to split the booty up 6 ways so that 6 people get to enjoy it. It's not as if there isn't enough to go around! This is very wonderful (and smart) of you.

  112. What gorgeous beads -- and such a fabulous assortment. I think splitting up the batch would offer the most good (as much as I'd personally love to wallow and create with the whole treasure). This will be fun to follow!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I'm a new follower and love what you have here. I'll be generous and say divide it up, but oh my heart says, "I want it all"

    ReplyDelete
  114. Incredible site and what a talent! I drool...
    I have become a follower and I think that sharing the wealth is the way to go, thanks for doing this, what fun!

  116. I want to enter, too! What an amazing burst of generosity~! I think you should give it away any way that brings you the most joy, because no matter what you choose you will make someone (or several someone's) happy as well! I will post this on my blog as well. shakura-moonsinger.blogspot.com.

  118. thanks to kylie, i found out about this cool giveaway & i am following you. i would be thrilled to win such a fab stash of beads. i'm usually not selfish, but i'd say keep them all together. if i were to happen to win, i would keep a few & donate the rest to our local senior citizen group so that they could make some cool stuff & enjoy themselves.

    i'll post on my blog as well

  119. What a GREAT Giveaway! I guess I would choose 6 giveaways. Any one of the groups is great. Will you list the winners in your blog? I'm wondering how I should list my id. - M A Helgesen

    ReplyDelete
  120. Hi Denise, I am following you on blogger and facebook. My opinion is that you should do as many giveaways as you like. :) If I was doing this I would split the beady goodness into six, as I think that would spread the joy.

    I posted about this on my blog too and will be emailing you the link.

    Thanks for doing this, and Happy beading.

  124. OMG! Such a generous giveaway!

    Tough question! It would be just amazing to win the whole lot but splitting it up would make six people happy! I vote to split it up.

    I'm now following.

  125. Denise,

    Softflex Girl promoted you that is how I found your giveaway. I'm following you now.. WOW! What beautiful beads. I think it's no hands down split it 6 ways. To receive 1 strand or beads free would be so gracious and sweet of you. So I say split the treasure chest between as many as possible.

    I will be sure to promote your giveaway on my blog also.

    have a fantastic day!

  129. Amazing offer!!! I have been a fan of yours from the beginning and am so proud of all the work you do! Even though most everyone says "split it up" they really want it all as one and I say keep it together and make it an awesome win! Or do a 1st, 2nd and 3rd...

    Keep it up!

  135. I love to see all the beautiful beads and work you share on your blog. It is one of my favorite places on the internet!

  136. now following you on twitter. I think you should do it 6 ways. 6 winners are a lot more fun than just 1.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Hi Denise, I'm new to your blog ... how exciting is this. You certainly have good taste in beads! I want to win them all, but maybe they should be split up into 6 winners. You have so much to go around.

  138. Man, I say split, but only because that ups my chances of winning!!! Thanks for the giveaway and I definitely posted it on my blog.

    I would spread it around so you have 6 very happy beaders.

  143. I cannot imagine parting with any of my beads, let alone this many. It would be so exciting to receive all of these, but...do you make one person happy or many? I say many. I will repost on my blog. Thank you for being so generous.

  148. Denise, I was given your link by a beading friend. So wonderful to read your posts, and to get the chance to win some fabulous beads. I would have to say split them, just for the excitement of more people winning! Love all the awesome colors. Wish I had a blog site, so I could be entered 10 more times!! :)

  149. What a wonderful giveaway! I would luv to win all these beads, but dividing them would give more people the opportunity to win, and that would be a good thing too.

  150. What an amazing giveaway! However you decide to give then away...6 ways or one big haul for one lucky commenter it would be awesome to win!
    PS...I'm having an art supply giveaway on my blog.

  151. Winning the whole lot would be amazing, but splitting it up would mean more chances to win! I guess I'll have to vote for splitting it up.

  154. Hey Denise! This is a crazy bead giveaway! I think one person should get all. I found you via Barbara Bechtel over at Second Surf! And If I win, I'd send her the sari yarn, 'cuz she's really a great woman and has been dreaming about it for days! :)

    Have a fabulous day!

  157. What a wonderful giveaway!
    I have GOT to get my name into this giveaway.

    As a blog owner and fellow giveaway host, I think you should choose ONE winner because postage to 6 different locations will be more expensive and choosing 6 different people will take longer.

    As an ENTRANT to the giveaway and as a hopeful winner, I think you should choose SIX winners!

    Did that help? Heh.

    ReplyDelete
  158. And because I want to win this so badly (I can taste it) I am going to post this on my blog where I have over 550 google followers and 500 subscribers.

    That's a lot of traffic who will be coming your way!

    ReplyDelete
  159. What a beautiful stash of beads...so many possibilities there! Keep it together or split it up... I'm happy either way! Two things about keeping it together are that the lucky winner might decide to share the love and have their own giveaway with some of the items and it saves you having to ship multiple packages.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Me oh my!!! Would love to have all these beads to play with...I have so many projects going on in my head right now!!!
    me! me! me!!!!!!

  163. Following...and drooling! What a give-a-way. Did someone threaten you that if you didn't clear out some of your stash, they would chop your fingers off??? Anyway, split it up. If just one person won all that, they might be hunted down. Wow, this is a violent comment. Breath. Okay, I'm calmer now.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Wow, great giveaway. I posted a link from my blog at wordpress (need that extra 10 enteries - lol). I'm hoping to win this for my sister who does jewelry for a living. She can always use the help with supplies as finances are tight in this economy. Plus her birthday is coming up in July. What a great gift it would be for her.

  166. WOW. What an awesome giveaway! You are incredibly generous to do this, and personally, I think the whole lot should go to one lucky person....although I am partial to the sari silk and would love to have even just that!

    I'll be posting on my blog about this, for sure!

  170. Odd! I swear I commented here yesterday. Maybe not. Maybe there are so many I just can't find my comment. LOL! Anyway, I vote it is split up into lots-even more than 6 lots. I mean, I'd be overjoyed to win one or two things ;o)

  186. How very generous to share your stash with aspiring artists like myself! Thanks for your generousity...

  196. Great give away, Thanks to Shannon of After Hours Art Glass for letting me know about this, I'm now a follower. I think you should break up the winnings that way 6 people could win some of the goods. God bless, Michelle

    ReplyDelete
  197. Hi-- I'm following on facebook. What a wonderful giveaway - I'll vote for one prize because it makes one great win!

    ReplyDelete
  198. Hi Denise, Wow, what a giveaway! I tried to become a follower but blogger is acting up right now and I got an error message, will try again later.

    I think it would be cool to divide it up into many winners, I know I would be overwhelmed to receive that many beads, oh the sleepless nights of dreaming up all to make with it, the pressure! :) I think a nice selection of some of each color for each winner would be cool. Then there would sure to be 'favorites to work with' and 'ones to make one stretch' as well.

    I'll be back with another comment. I am currently updating my blog with today's Bead Soup revealers and will add in your give away too.
