Tokens of our Appreciation

This week has been Teacher Appreciation week at school. I have to admit, it's been nice. The administration and various clubs have held drawings, fed us goodies, given us small and really cool gifts (I have stylish pink pens now!).

It's nice to feel valued.

Which explains what we've been up to here at Romance Worth Killing For this week -- planning to show you how much we appreciate and value you, our readers. Yet, while my fellow teachers and I receive a mere week of official appreciation, you'll receive fifty-two weeks of contest rewards here at Romance Worth Killing For!

So here's the deal:

  • Each weekly reader contest will be announced on Saturday (we're early this week . . . blame it on excitement!)

  • You post comments to our posts throughout the week, simply as you do now.

  • On the following Saturday, a winner (or winners, as applicable) will be drawn from that week's commenters.

  • Prizes will vary -- craft books, novels, jewelry, gift baskets, gift certificates.

This week, because we're celebrating Mother's Day and the advent of our weekly contest, we're offering a deluxe prize package! One reader will receive:

  • Don't Sweat The Small Stuff for Women: Simple and Practical Ways to Do What Matters Most and Find Time for You by Kristine Carlson.

  • Don't Sweat The Small Stuff with Your Family: Simple Ways to Keep Daily Responsibilities and Household Chaos from Taking Over Your Life by Richard Carlson, PhD.

  • A custom, one-of-a-kind lampwork bead bracelet, each floral bead handmade by our own Joan Swan. An exquisite combination of sterling silver findings, Swarovski crystals and white jade.

    We hope you visit often, stay for a while and talk to us!

Isn't it fabulously beautiful? I have another of Joan's and I love wearing it because I always get tons of compliments on it!

I visit this site without any incentive other than to learn more about the craft and hear other experiences, but this makes it even better!
