Master Class Book Giveaway

First another image to follow along with yesterdays clean studio theme....from when we moved everything and steam cleaned the carpet



The wide angle view. There are days I would like to repaint....and then reality sets in. I had a sagey green color in mind but for some reason this is the paint I got. When the house was built the studio was an outdoor porch with half cement walls. Sometime in the first two years the porch was closed in with wood paneling and a tin roof. The cement took a lot of paint and I decided that repainting was not going to happen. It's grown on me and there are other house projects that will take precedent...maybe someday. This was the first space we tackled when we moved in six years ago now. It was truly ugly with band aid color paint, a 1970's linoleum floor, dark wood paneling and lattice work in the openings you see here. It was truly horrible and now it is a light filled space where I spend most of my days.

But on to the important things. Last week I told you about the new Master Class book Beaded Fantasies.



It seems that I have an extra copy. Would you like it? Just leave me a comment between now and midnight tonight PST. Tomorrow sometime I'll use the random number generator and pick a winner. Now I'll be traveling all day tomorrow, so no promises on the timing...but check back Wednesday or Thursday to see if that winner is you.

I have plans to buy this book--I love Sabine's patterns and have quite a few of them. I'll wait until you announce who wins before purchasing!! Maybe I will be real lucky--hope, hope!!

Candy S said...

That's very thoughtful of you. I would love a copy of Sabine's book. :)

Jennifer Ehrichs said...

I am so jealous of your studio! Even when it's creatively messy I bet it's nice. Great giveaway, but you can count me out since my copy is already purchased and will be on its way soon.

Unknown said...

That would be so great, I'm really looking forward to this book!

b. said...

... what a wonderful idea!

Jane Lock said...

I no, I have studio-envy! And if you're up for shipping to the UK I'd love to be randomly considered for Sabine's lovely book :)

Jennifer said...

I need a new beading book. You never can have enough

The bad Liz said...

How wonderful.....you do have a great workspace....

Sharon K said...

I would be thrilled to add this book to my collection.

jodi said...

What a beautiful space. I'm envious! Thank you for offering up your extra copy of the book.

Helen said...

I would love to have her book, I think she is fantastic

You are a very generous beader, Miss Marcia!

Tom and Jane said...

Looks like a great book. I have all the rest of the Master Class Books so I would love to have this one also.

eliana said...

I aspect of the release of this book for months .... today is my birthday ... maybe "Lady Luck" will make me a present.

Pixiloo said...

I love your studio. I would also love a copy of Sabine's book. I have been a fan of her designs for a long while and have been looking forward to seeing her designs in print.

Doreen said...

I think the green is pretty! Please enter me. I would love a copy of this book!

Francesca Watson said...

Ooooh, pick me! :-)

(Love your studio, by the way - all those windows are wonderful!)

Mrs Cake said...

total studio envy! :) I'd also love the book, but I imagine shipping it outside the 'States would be a costly endeavour! However, if Jane was lucky enough to win this giveaway I'd promise to drool into a bib and wear gloves so I didn't put grubby fingermarks on it whilst begging a looky :D I'd return the favour Jane! ;)

Petra said...

As a great fan of Sabine Lipperts work, I pre-ordered her new book, and I hope I'll receive my copy soon ;-)

So I don't join your give away, but I want to say that it's very generous of you Marcia.

Warm greetings,
Petra

Peapod Beads said...

If Lesley wins I hope the book could travel to the upcoming retreat so we can all pore over it with gloves and bibs. Obviously if I win I will share with my buddies too! Until their ordered
copies arrive, and for UK beaders I'm not sure when that is!

ruthie said...

Such a lovely light-filled studio...you lucky girl!

Hello Marcia, what a wonderful studio! I'd love to win this copy. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway! I'm writing from Germany and I hope I have a chance to win.

Cindy Holsclaw said...

I like the green color - it reminds me of spring! Or maybe I like it because it's spring right now? Hmm...

Sabine's book is on my to-get list; I need to add it to my collection of Master Class books :)

Leora said...

Such a light, bright studio! I'm envious...

Your willingness to share/giveaway extra items is so much fun for those of us who follow your work! Thank you!

cherig said...

I think your studio is the epitome of you. It is airy and light and that is how you always seem to me. I giggle when you post how frustrated you are with one project or another, but I always know that the end result will be fabulous, as always.

I envy your studio. Some day, I will have a beading place of my own, for now it's the coffee table when the kids (and cat) are asleep. Would love, love, love to win this book, especially since I was born and raised in Germany, moved to the USA and haven't been back in over 15 years. Thanks for being so generous!

I have made several of Sabine's rings from her pattern on Etsy. I am sure her new book is Fab.

Lovely studio. If I lived closer I would volunteer to keep your studio "up" for one lesson a month. At least then I could see how you arrive at the beautiful colors that you put together all of the time.

Throw my name into the hat for this giveaway. What a generous gift for a very lucky reader!

On a different note, I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE your studio space! Mine is much smaller and is not nearly as pretty... it *WAS* built to order for a genuine Swiss watchmaker, though! See, the house was previously owned by... well... you guessed it ;)

Anyway, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this giveaway. See you around! <3

T=MC2 said...

Oh, me please, me please! I love Sabine's work and keep trying desperately to get to one of her classes but timings never seem to work out (boo!). Maybe BBTB next year... in the meantime, I'd really enjoy reading, re-reading and working through her book!

ChrisD said...

I know it's a work space for you Marcia but it's still an amazing space with lots of light. All your shots of it make me want to clear out our storage room (even though it's only about 6 by 6!).

Would love to be entered into your draw if you are happy to ship abroad. This book is already on my wish list but won't be out here for some time yet.

Michelle said...

Thanks for the give-away! This looks like a wonderful book!
