A Contest! Spread the word......

This summer I am going to have a booth at my local Farmer's Market.

My 3 year old granddaughter was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and her parents are participating in a bike ride to raise money for research. They have been on quite a roller coaster ride since October 2010 when Norah was diagnosed. Sleepless nights, hospital stays, doctor appointments and finger pokes have become the norm for them.

So what does this have to do with Type 1 Diabetes?

Norah loves jewelry. Nana (me) makes jewelry. I am going to do my part to help Team Norah raise the money they need to participate in the 100 mile bike ride WITHOUT getting on a bicycle.

I have not been on a bike in years and I plan on keeping it that way. 

So I am making bracelets. Bright colorful glass bead and crystal bracelets. $6 each or 2 for $10. I will be selling ONLY bracelets at farmer's market.

Here's the contest: I need a name for my booth- besides just Artworks Studio- something catchy and memorable and fun and just makes you WANT to buy a bracelet.  Post your ideas in the comments. I will have Norah's parents choose the one they like best and the winner will get a $25 gift certificate from Artworks Studio to spend either here in the studio or in my Etsy store. Enter as often as you like. I need a name by May 1st.

Thanks for helping!
