Creative Options CHA Giveaway!





They were so nice to give me something to give to you. They not only gave me some of their famous bags. Purple to boot but also this fab, new portable bead and embellishment tower. So, all you need to do is leave a comment about (just choose one):

1. What you would put in this fab tower.
2. What you think about this tower.
3. If you don't have a use for this tower, what other Creative Options product would you "have to have"? Maybe, if enough people want one, I can ask very, very, very, very, very nicely and I can get one for a blog giveaway. Here is the link to their website: http://creativeoptionscrafts.com/ .
All you need to do is comment below for a chance to win. Make sure you come back and check to see if you have won on Wednesday, August 11th. I will use the random number generator to pick the winners of the tower and for several purple bags. Good luck. If people don't respond with their mailing info by Sunday, August 15th, then I will pick new winners. Good luck and happy summer!
BTW, I moderate comments. They will pop up as soon as I approve it.

My beads are in little containers and baggies scattered all over the place. It would be great to get them all organized together in one compact, portable container that wouldn't just fade into the mix of stuff on my shelves. I'd always be able to find them!

Nancy said...

I'd use the tower to store beads, buttons, and charm embellishments. What I think of the tower is that it's truly a space-saver, and handy because everything can be stored in one place and in sight. And it's attractive.

Sandi said...

Wow, I'm first!!! First, let me say that I loved the bracelet you made for Suze!!
It's so cliche, but this looks like a perfect bead, findings, etc. storage solution! Maybe for different options for a work in progress?!

Thanks for offering this give away, Belinda. I would keep eyelets, brads, beads, and other small embellishments in the tower.

I have never seen this tower before but I fell in LOVE with it the minute I saw it. Beads, do-dads, charms, all would fit so well in the slots in the containers. And there are enough spaces that any mixed media artist could keep their metal separate from their polymer clay pieces from their crystals. I counted 36 separate slots to keep everything all neat and tidy. Gosh I would LOVE one of these. I am so in love with it, I would dance on my studio craft bench if I won it.

lynncun said...

i do like that tower and i would put all my eyelets and brads in there. now where to put the tower itself....

Priscilla said...

I am so unorganized right now. This would help me keep my buttons and beads and charms all in one place. I love it.

Linda B said...

wowzers I totally adore the tower, it would be choc full of all my most fave rusty washers and fun ephemera

Cathy said...

Oh it's fabulous and I would put my beads in it. I'm always looking for a place to put my beads so they would be all in one place (I am in denial about how many beads I have). LOL

Leslie said...

I love organization containers, but you would never know it to look at my studio! I think this tower looks like a great way to organize charms and bezels for jewelry making!

Liz Kettle said...

Love those bags! I have a green one that would love to play with the purple one! That container is fabulous. I would use it for all my assorted eyelets that seem to get everywhere.

crystalweddingboutique said...

I have thousands of Swarovski crystals all over the house in different rooms because I constantly work in different rooms due to my disability I have to go where it's comfortable but the tower looks fab I want a few of these for all my crystals all in one place and at hand

Scrapware said...

Oh wow, how fabulous! I would store my charms and brooch findings in it...how handy having them all neat and tidy!

Anonymous said...

I am no different about most things... I would also use the tower for beads & embellishments. But... I would reserve one of the "rounds" for my pain meds and other prescriptions so that when I go to a conference or out of town I will have them close at hand too!!

Rhonda Sadler said...

What a great place to keep ALL those beads, crystals and little do-dads!
I love it when my do-dads are all together! LOL

Linda B. said...

Perfect timing! I am trying to organize my mountains of "findings" and also to figure out a way to "travel" some of them with me - this would be PERFECT. Thanks for the chance!

I think the tower is a sweet accessory that would be great to take along to use when doing small handsewing on mini art quilts. It looks like you could put beads and needles/thread on one side and the cloth/paper piece to be sewn on the other side. Very attractive and certainly an attention getter. I also love the purple bags. I'm really a bag person.

Joanie Hoffman said...

I like the tower. It's portable & all the charms & buttons I have (well, some of the buttons) could be organized in just one place.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Stephanie said...

what great stuff! CHA looks like fun even though it is a bit smaller. That tower is too cool -- lots of storage in a little space. Stephanie

Kirsten said...

What a fun tower! But, the Project Tote is something I see as more versatile for me. I love the simple design. It would let me take just enough supplies for travel. Thanks for the giveaway!

CindyB said...

Cool organizer! I think it would be perfect for my altered art elements. There would be space for little gears, screws and such. I'm in!

You really have the best giveaways and thanks for the heads up on the Traci Bautista download too!! Hoping I get picked for this one - thanks Belinda!! xo

Jan C. said...

The tower would be perfect for carrying beads and embellishments to a workshop and the bag would go to my monthly art group meetings with me.

Bobiwash said...

I love containers and this one is the cutest! I would keep all my findings for my necklaces in it. Right now, they are in several bags and pill containers around my studio.

Lin said...

I'd jump on the Tower for a bead-a-thon with friends!

Roxanne Napolitano said...

I just found Creative Options on Facebook! Then, I ended up on YOUR blog. Funny how things work, isn't it?!?
The tower would be FABULOUS for findings of different metals...I can see it filled with Bali Silver, copper, brass ox, etc. etc. - all the closures and that sort of thing - ALL neatly in their own little section. Creative Options has such amazing organizing pieces!
I have some Craft Mates products, but they house the long strips that pin-lock closed, not always so easy to open :-P
The C.O. products look sleek & space-efficient - I haven't seen them around here (sad face!).
I'd love to start with the tower - it would take care of one "category" beautifully! Gee that would be super to have (hint hint)...

Roxanne Napolitano said...

By the way, I have enjoyed seeing your work SO much!! I'm going back now to look some more...I feel like a stalker! LOL
~Roxanne :D

Kathy said...

That is perfect! Great for travel or home.

Cindy said...

I'd store my brads, eyelets etc. in the tower since every time I open the little containers they're in now, they spill all over the place!

FlutterbugArtGirl said...

The Tower is definitely cool - it would be perfect for the obvious: beads and embellishments. Easy to grab and take supplies anywhere - living room to spend quality time with husband in front of TV/computer... while hand embellishing art quilts. The totes are another great organizing tool. I'm dreaming of what must-haves I'd pack in there...

Lisa said...

I saw their booth at CHA... yummy! I would use it for the typical bead, baubles, jewels, findings, chinese fortunes, tiny rubber animals, little puzzle pieces, washers, gears, postage stamps, and so on and so on... I love all their storage ideas!

Debbie_in_NM said...

I would put the little odds and ends that I have collected to use in my mixed media jewelry. That way they would be in one place instead of several different places.
I love the tower. I tend to collect items that I can store things in. Old traincases, briefcases etc. This is wonderful because it comes with the little organizational trays.

Elizabeth in NM said...

I'd use the tower for beads, maybe some of the polymer clay buttons and beads I've been making recently too. Bags are always great too--did I mention that purple is my favorite color?

Anonymous said...

WOW this tower is absolutely the answer to my wishes. It would allow me to KNOW where my beads were instead of hunting for the ones I want to work with. Great idea!

Lynda Coker said...

This is exactly what I need, not for beads, but for those tiny Fabric pieces I use in my mosaics. Some of them or miniscule and get lost very easily. I'd love to give them their own home. This tower is so cool! I could organize my itsy bitsy pieces by color and that would be extremely helpful. And the tower is atractive enough to enhance my studio rather than add to the clutter. What a fabulous container idea.

art reFlecktions said...

I am a beader and would LOVE to have that tower...I'd fill it full of findings. My beads have homes but the findings are in baggies and stuff all over the place!!

Carolyn in Cullowhee said...

I've tried 3 times now to get posted. I don't understand what is wrong. I wrote previously that this container is SO cool, I need a whole shelf lined with them. So very many uses for my beads, finding and fused glass pendants.

Boot ~C said...

If I had a tower like this I can see myself using it to take supplies to shows,. I like to have something to work on when I am sitting @ a booth.

Goldilox said...

WOW! I have never seen something like the tower. What a cool, fun way to organize all those little art, craft, sewing doodads that accumulate. The tower would be left out (cause it is so awesome looking!) and so much more accessible.

Peggy Wilkinson said...

I would use it to keep all my little things that usually get dumped like rivets, beads, findings. It'd be great to have them all in one place!

Anonymous said...

Wow what a great idea. I would use it for all those beads and thigs that don't seem to fit anywhere else!! Great space saver too as I could dangle it from the wall!!
