GIVEAWAY CLOSED winners announced here

This giveaway is sponsored by Joan's Gems. Joan, the artisan behind Joan's Gems makes gorgeous jewelery, ornaments and these FANTASTIC bubble wands.  Aren't they cute? You're going to have a chance to win one of TWO! You have to see these in person. They are so cute and a work of art, not your typical store bought bubble wand! 
When I was researching fun summer toys I saw these bubble wands and thought they were not only perfect for fun bubble time but add some flowing ribbon and you've got fairy wands too! The wands make big bundles of bubbles, streams of bubbles and regular "blown" bubbles that had my girls giggling and chasing after them.There are two sizes of wands, but both are big! The small one we have measures 4 1/2 inch in diameter and is 12 inches long. The large one is 16 1/2 inches long and the heart measures 6 inches across. They are sturdy and well made. The wire is not flimsy and not easily bent.  The bead detailing, fun colors and pretty shapes make these whimsical and fun. The wands come with a bubble solution recipe on the tag and are ready for gifting. They would be awesome as party favors, I'm going to need another wand because my three girls each want one! If you'd like one please enter to win, details are below. And visit her Etsy store
Joan has been making jewelery and wire art for 10 years. You can read more about her and her business HERE, on her profile page. Joan has been selling her art at shows and markets including the famed Wheaten French Market in IL since 2002. She's no newbie! Joan's email communication and costumer service are top notch. She shipped quickly and the wands were packed nicely with bubble wrap in a sturdy box.
Here are pieces from her Etsy shop that I think are gorgeous.
