This Ohm Beads blog alerts readers to the start of the Ohm Beads Beadmas at Great Lakes Boutique and Endangered Trolls.
Happy Beadmas ladies and gents! We’re a little late in starting this year. Though December the 1st fell on Saturday, we didn’t want our Winter Wonderland Event activities to overshadow Beadmas so we decided to begin with a new week.
For those of you new to Ohm Beads, Beadmas is an annual celebration focused on giving back to the community. It’s twelve days of giveaways and fun on social media and blogs as we collectively countdown to the end of another year.
As we’re starting late, we’ll be running seven days of giveaways both on Endangered Trolls and at Great Lakes Boutique.
Ohm Beads Beadmas at Great Lakes Boutique and Endangered Trolls
When the year draws to an end I always spend time reflecting on the past twelve months. The designs, the highlights and dare I say it, the drama. The good the bad and the ugly. We’re a very small team at GLB and one thing we collectively agreed upon is that the Ohm Beads Bad Dreams Promotion was not our best idea.
The Ohm Beads Bad Dreams was an unreleased part of the Emotions set released in collaboration with Taylored Curiosities. The entire set has now retired and no one ever knew why Bad Dreams wasn’t released. A very small number were made and we took them all. It’s a very cute little bead but nothing that we felt comfortable with releasing again and now we’re giving it back to the collectors.

Every day for the next seven days there will be one Ohm Beads Bad Dreams given away on our social media pages. For reference you can find us on the Great Lakes Boutique Facebook and Instagram pages and then the Endangered Trolls Facebook and Instagram pages. It amounts to a total of fourteen chances to win Bad Dreams.
For day one, one giveaway will be here on the blog and the second over on the Great Lakes Boutique Facebook page. The winner will be drawn and announced late tomorrow night. For those participating on the blog, please ensure you email address you are commenting from is live and monitored. You’ll have forty eight hours to respond or you’ll waive your rights to the prize. There is no monetary alternative and though we ship with tracking, we cannot be held responsible for any losses in the mail nor for potential import taxes. Winners will all be drawn at random.
Your first task is to leave me a comment with your biggest Christmas disaster. Those who follow my blog closely will know I’m not a huge fan of Christmas. Many many years ago however myself and a group of friends needed to defrost a huge turkey fast. (That was the first mistake.) In our infinite youthful wisdom, we decided to leave said turkey in the boiler room. I should mention the house was heated by a wood burner and that boiler room easily hit forty degrees celsius when the door was closed. Of course we promptly forgot about it. When the turkey was remembered on Chrismas Eve (two or three days later,) we decided cooling it down fast was the next logical step. It got deposited in the trunk of a car overnight. When we went to retrieve it the next morning the smell from the car was rancid and I couldn’t stop giggling because well, I’m vegetarian. What to do with slightly suspect meat? Just overcook it. Miraculously no one died of food poisoning but hand on heart that car had to be sold a couple of months later because it just smelled of death. That same year and same group of friends also had a very chilly New Years Eve when all of the electrics went out and no electrician would come out. It was a magical festive season.
Over to you readers. I want to hear all those Christmas disasters (and I hope there’s a few more bad cooking stories in there as I have another involving another friend pouring boiling hot oil down my very bare legs after removing yet another turkey from the oven.)
Comments will be turned off tomorrow evening and I will contact the winner by email 🙂
