Xanna's Jewelry Box is participating in a phenomenal blog event called "One World, One Heart". This is a wonderful opportunity to meet others just like yourself, make new friends, and get a glimpse of the world around us and see what others are doing. Thousand of blogs are participating in this event, and I'm so excited to be a part of it all, and I encourage you to click on the link below and find out more about all the other bloggers participating.
Who am I? My name is Xanna. I'm fairly new to blogging as my blog will attest to every once in awhile :) I created Xanna's Jewelry Box as an outlet for some of my creative ideas and I'm a dancer instructor. I teach mostly ballet and jazz to 3-12 year olds, where creativity is worn like a fancy dress and honesty is like a summer breeze, sweet and refreshing.
OK enough about me for the moment, now it's time to get to know all of you and have a little fun doing it, so on to the bracelet you could win by just leaving a comment!
"Spring Overture" bracelet
Length: 7 1/4-9"
Overture: an instrumental prelude to an opera, oratorio or ballet.
To me it is the beginning to something beautiful for more the one sense! This bracelet has the warm colors of a spring sunrise, with these beautiful boro beads and spacers by BC Lampworks. The three strands of dancing pearls between each set of boro beads, are the reminder that winter is not quite ready to go quietly, and the sparkle of the 2XAB Swarovski helps to unit the two striking colors! All of this will sit strikingly on your wrist!
This could be yours...Simply leave a comment on this post. Make sure you leave some way for me to contact you should you win... a link back to your blog or website or your email. That's it!
Have fun and check out The Whimsical Bohemian for a list of all the blogs playing this year! You will have until 12:00 am Pacific Standard time February 15th to leave your comments, Winner will be announced later in the afternoon on February 15th.
UP DATE (1/27/10)!!!!! For each 100 comments I receive for the drawing I will add another item to the drawing. This is my first year an I didn't realize how phenomenal it really was! Now your odds are better :) ~XannaDrum Roll.....Here are the two new prizes! If I get over 300 entries I'll then add another, have fun!!

Anyway I received my tent last week and was sooooo excited to start taking pictures, because I live in the North West of the United States and it has been raining non stop, and it has been impossible to go out and take pics of the new items I have created! As I start opening up my box of goodies, I notice the tent is HUGE, like able to fit a small child huge! Ok.... well I can work with that. Then I pull out my background piece, ummm it's blue/gray, nope can't work with that I wanted blk/wht! So now this is going from bad to worse, and I'm beginning to think maybe I should have gone with the DIY model on the web! Now I move on to the lights; bulbs (check), tripods (check), lights fixtures (check), swivel piece to hook light fixtures to tripod......Nope! Well this has been a complete and utter waist of time and money and then I read their return policy...and it just keeps getting better and better! I'm thinking maybe I'll call them direct.
Luckily we have since had a sunny day, so I ran outside took pics like a mad woman and posted them just as quickly. I hope you enjoy the posts and my little bit of ranting ~Xanna :)
