WIN BEAD MANAGER PRO software worth $147

If you were like me you probably enjoy beading and would like to have all the time in the world just for that. Well, I don't think that will ever happen, but at least I think I am heading that direction.

As friends and coworkers started asking me to make jewelry for them as well, I officially entered the world known as "jewelry business". I had to start treating my jewelry venture as a business and I was suppose to keep the inventory of materials, costs, products etc. I was of course using my trusty notebook but I had hard time to keep up with what beads are left in my stash, how much I paid for them, even where did I get them; I was spending my time on writing and re-writing. Not to mention that I was always guessing how much to charge for that necklace or bracelet? Not any more!

I bought a Bead Manager Pro software that does all that work for me since.
Now they are giving away  a copy of THE NEWEST VERSION OF THIS SOFTWARE. You can also become the owner of one if you register to win.

If you would you like to enjoy the production part of jewelry making and not wasting time on keeping up with the paperwork, I would suggest click here to win!

 Don't wait, time is ticking out... 

 I wish you the best of luck in winning this treasure! LJ
