Peridot Glass Earrings Giveaway

Could I get away with doing this in my office?

I am going to give it a try and see what happens. These are my speculations as to possible outcomes:

  1. Coworkers walk by and ignore me. Nothing I do shocks them anymore.
  2. A crowd gathers around my office and they begin to take bets on how long it takes before I fall on my derriere. This is a possibility since my chair has wheels, and the one she is using is stationary.
  3. My boss runs in and restrains me assuming that I am having a breakdown.
  4. Create your own--Bonus entry for creative answers!
I'm pretty poor right now, my niece snatched my last $5 when I drove her to youth group last night. But I can make stuff, so you could win a pair of handmade Peridot Glass earrings:


Selling it like Bob Barker, these little beauties are made from 10mm faceted round opaque peridot glass beads suspended on kidney bronze wire. Simple and pretty, and oh--I made them. Wear some Clarkie love.

So here are the rules because I feel like dishing them out like a schoolmarm. You can do one or more of the following:
  • One entry for leaving a comment with how you think my office mates will react.
  • Bonus entry for coming up with something creative that makes me laugh.
  • One entry for tweeting about it. Something like: Check out @Clarkie_Runs fanTABulous #giveaway for some rockin' handmade earrings
  • One entry for following my blog or linking my giveaway from your blog. Leave a note in the comment section. I'm not above buying your love.
I'm good with spreadsheets, so I can keep track of the list. Entries will be closed on 2/4/2011 at noon CST and picked via

My goal is for six entries (Fingers crossed!) Anything more than that is totally a bonus. Sorry guys, next time I will think of something more masculine. Unless you like wearing dangle earrings, and I'm totally cool with that too.


  1. I think Olivia Newton John's "Let Get Physical" would begin to play and suddenly all of your coworkers would show up in leotards and headbands and before you know it you'd be leading a 1980s style group aerobic class...if you did that workout in your office.

  2. Bonus point Tonyne, definite bonus point.

  3. 4. Your co-workers stop to tell you how running and working out in general is bad for you and your precious knees.

    ...At least that's what mine would do... :) They think of the most creative ways to tell me why I should just be a bum like them! Ha!

    P.S. Those earrings are phenomenal!

  4. Hm, I think they would ignore you, but only because that is what I would do. None of my business, yeah? But I LOVE Tonyne's answer best, so I pick what she said. lol

  5. P.P.S. I love your blog design! Beautiful!
