It's here!!! Pepita 1st Blogoversary Blog Hop / Končno!!! Blog hop ob prvi obletnici mojega bloga

  I'm so happy to announce the BLOG HOP - the grand finale for celebrating the first blogoversary of this blog!!! I have to say the date of this reveal was not chosen randomly, but on purpose: August 11 was the date of my reveal for last year's Bead soup blog party, the main reason I've started to write a blog.
  Vesela sem, da lahko končno razglasim tale blog hop - veliki finale obeležitve moje prve obletnice tega bloga!!! Datum tega dogodka (razkritja) ni bil izbran naključno, ampak namenoma - 11. avgusta lani je bil namreč datum mojega razkritja izdelkov iz Bead Soup Blog partija, ki je v bistvu glavni razlog za to, da sem začela pisati blog.

  Thirteen jewelry creators have played with me and the components I've made from polymer clay using different techniques. 
  Trinajst izdelovalk nakita se mi je v tej igri pridružilo in iz različnih koščkov, ki sem jih izdelala iz polimerne gline, ustvarilo končne izdelke.

  Here are the components with the names of the person that received each:
  To so koščki z imeni posameznice, ki je vsakega dobila:

   You would say one is missing ... It's true, because Cynthia proposed to use the components she won in my last giveaway:
  Pravite, da eden manjka? Res je, Cynthia je namreč predlagala, da izdelke naredi iz tistih koščkov, ki jih je zadela v moji prejšnji nagradni igri:

  If you are interested in any of the components, just drop a line to my e-mail: - they can be made to order in any color combination, we can arrange everything. My Etsy shop is a work in progress and will be open soon, hope by the end of this month.
  Če vas zanima kakšen od mojih izdelkov, mi lahko pišete na e-mail: - izdelam jih lahko v kakšnikoli barvni kombinaciji in po vaših željah. 

   So let's go, now, and see what everybody has made!!! But don't forget to come back and read this post to the end as there is a surprise for my readers - a little GIVEAWAY!!!
  Zdaj pa se lahko "sprehodimo" po spodnjih blogih in si ogledamo, kaj je pravzaprav nastalo iz zgornjih koščkov!!! A ne pozabite se vrniti, na koncu te objave vas čaka NAGRADNA IGRA!!!

 And now, the GIVEAWAY!!!
Sedaj pa - NAGRADNA IGRA!!!

Cynthia Machata used all the components I've sent to her to make several pieces and she was so generous that proposed to me to have a giveaway here of two of her pieces, a bracelet and a necklace.
Cynthia Machata je uporabila kar vse koščke, ki sem ji jih poslala, in je predlagala, da lahko dva svoja izdelka podari v nagradni igri na mojem blogu - to sta zapestnica in verižica:

 And what do you need to do to participate:
1. you have to be a follower of this blog
2. leave a comment under this post
3. you can also write which prize would you prefer
4. be sure to leave your e-mail address (if it's not connected to your profile), 
so I can contact you 

Kaj pa morate narediti za sodelovati v žrebanju:
1. spremljati morate moj blog
2. pod to objavo pustiti komentar
3. lahko tudi napišete, kaj bi rajši zadeli (ni obvezno)
4. pustite svoj e-mail naslov (če ni že povezan z vašim profilom), da vas lahko kontaktiram 

That's it!! Very simple, isn't it?
The winners will be drawn next Sunday, August 18th, at 12:00 CET.
Zelo enostavno, kajne?
Zmagovalca bom izžrebala naslednjo nedeljo, 18. avgusta, okrog 12h.

   Thank you, ladies, very much!!! It was so fun that I'm thinking about repeating it each year!!! What do you think?
  Na koncu bi se rada zahvalila sodelujočim v tej moji igrici. Meni je bilo tako zabavno, da razmišljam o tem, da bi tak način praznovanja ponovila vsako leto. Kaj pravite?

  Be happy,
  Bodite veseli,

I love Cynthia's heart necklace.

Being part of your blog anniversary was really fun. Thanx for including me. I would prefer the bracelet if I am a winner.

Dini Bruinsma said...

I hope you enjoyed your ♥Blogoversary as much as I did! You did challenge 'us' in a very positive way! A yearly challenge blog hop is a very good idea imo :-) The bracelet is my favourite! Thanx once again!

This has been one of my favorite blog hops, Alenka, and working with your lovely beads has been a joy! You were a great hostess and troubleshooter LOL. I notice others agree that you should do this every year... I would certainly get in line for that, Alenka! This draw is like the gift that keeps on giving... thanks to Cynthia also!

Hi Alenka,
Congratulations on your Blogoversary!
I can not believe I missed getting in the running for this blog hop I love your polymer clay creations. From what I have seen so far everyone has done a wonderful job at creating pieces of beauty with your creations.

I am a follower of your blog.

Cynthia is a very generous and gracious person to offer up two of her pieces that she made with your components. If I am one of the lucky winners either piece would be fine with me.

Happy Blogoversary Alenka and thank you so much for hosting such an enjoyable blog hop. I am sorry I have only managed to post up my design pictures so far, I have been growling at my internet for not playing fair. I wanted you to know that the necklace I made from your beautiful component is worn very proudly by my friend (who demanded that it should be hers even though I wanted to keep it). It has drawn many, many admiring comments and now I have been asked to make two more necklaces for other people! I am doing a happy dance! So I will send you an email shortly.
Thanks Alenka!

Happy blogaversary, this has been so much fun.

I have been a follower of your blog for awhile now. You really do amazing things with clay. I now have two of your components made into jewelry and I love them both.

My favorite piece of Cynthia's is the heart necklace.

I would love it if you continued the blogaversary challenge each year.

Thank you so much for being such a gracious hostess.

I am a new follower. I came from the Fb bead soup / cafe group.

I will have to take time and hop!
Congratulations on your blogiversary.

I would get more use from a necklace.

So many great components and pieces made with them. They did a great job with your components. I'm a follower of your blog. I'd love that bracelet if I win. My e-mail should be in my blog profile, but here it is again.

Alenka - I am SOOOOOO bummed that I didn't try to get in on this!!! ;) It's been a really busy summer - with not much beading or blogging or reading blogs! Congrats on your one year anniversary! Now that I'm settled in here on this Saturday morning with my coffee I can't wait to see what everyone created with your beautiful components!!!
