    It’s not very often a chance like this comes along. I often wonder where would I begin if I could afford all the Lark books. Winning would be dreamy.

I would love to win.

    I would LOVE to win these books!!! DIY jewelry & accessories are my #1 hobby!!! I love to find great deals on supplies, discounted, broken, or defective jewelry that I can remake into my own unique pieces. Sometimes I’ll even take several pieces & combine them or use them in crafting home decor, clothing, hair accessories, costume pieces, etc… I am also into Belly Dance & Burlesque, so I love to create costume pieces for myself & fellow dancers!!! I am an avid jewelry collector & I love to express myself with accessories!!! The way I see it is that, you can never have too much jewelry & accessories!!
