Beam N Read Pre-Holliday Giveaway Starts Today

It's that time of year....time for a fantastic giveaway!  The folks from Beam N Read are allowing me to give away a 6 LED Deluxe Hands-Free Light.  If you are not tickled pink, you certainly should be....not an opportunity you want to miss!!!  Why do I say this?  I say/type this because I was so surprised by how much I use and enjoy my own Beam N Read light.  When I first saw the light I thought to myself....great another light....who cares.  Oh was I wrong and I'm guessing if you have that thought....you will be surprised by how wrong you are too!

Having a Beam N Read 6 LED Hands Free Light will bring you, your family and friends 6 oz (including batteries) of total gratitude this holiday season, I promise :)  The Beam N Read Lights are wonderful for power outages, camping, reading, late night work.....any time you need to BRIGHTEN you path....they work wonderfully.  You also have the choice to use 3 LEDS or 6 LEDS by using the switch on the light...very handy ay?


I have given away over 25 Beam N Read Lights over the last few years.  I give them for birthday, Christmas, Going Away Gifts, Sorry Your Power is Out Gifts.....it is the truth...just ask my friends, neighbors and family.

Recently I had a friend who was moving back to Shanghai and I gave her one as a going away gift.  Knowing she would be on an airplane for a very long time I figured it would be very useful to her.    Lisa said I was so thoughtful to think of a gift that she could use that would not take up much room.  She works late hours on her computer and sometimes while in bed so I thought she would get a lot of use out of her Beam N Read.  Sure beats getting another something that will collect dust!

For you long time followers of my blog, you will remember the recent loss of my very dear girlfriend Mary Jane.  I used her Beam N Read while caring for her during the night.  The light allowed me to see the labels on the medication bottles without turning on the overhead light.  I used it to read at night as well.  The beam does not illuminate the entire room so it does not disturb people in close proximity.  A bit of humor....Mary Jane had sores in her mouth so bad there were times she could not speak.  She wanted her Beam N Read light so she was using her hand to make a flipping up motion to indicate what she wanted.  I cracked up laughing because I knew exactly what she wanted immediately.  She smiled big and I laughed out loud.  Thank God for friends and light!


Yes, I am very bad and work at night in my bed.  For the sake of your sanity and eyesight  I did not post a photo of me in my pj's using my light.  You all know how "unique" I am....so it should be no surprise that I have made my own adjustable neck strap.
I'm only 50 and I have already found that the more light I have while sewing or reading...the BETTER! 
I have found using the orange filter (both a red and orange filter are included)  that comes with the light helps to block some of the blue light from the LED bulbs.   

I have been recently educated to the effects of blue light that is emitted from LED's (computers, televisions, hand held devices and phones).  Did you know blue light effects your sleep patterns and can cause other health problems as well?  Yep....you can actually mess up your sleep by using blue screens before bed.  Just ask me how I know!!! Sources to read about blue light: Harvard Health Publications, Environmental Health Perspectives,  The Washington Post....there are so many...Google for yourself if you do not know about this subject.  Having two young boys who want to be on a screen 24/7, I found this information very important.

Winning a Beam N Read 6 LED Hands Free Light will definitely make your holiday season brighter.  Why not give one to everyone on you list....I bet they thank you for years to come!

Time for the giveaway!!!
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Bright Beaming Smiles,
Kelly

Lyn said...

I would love to have one of the lights. I am 75 and have very poor eyesight It would be wonderful to have a light shine right where I need it. Guess you can see I would use it for myself. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

Lisa Marie said...

I would like to give this light to my Dad.

Quilting Tangent said...

I would use it for reading, cross-stitch, sewing to name a few things that come to mind. Sounds wonderful!

Karen said...

When doing handwork while watching TV with the hubster. He likes the room lights out.

Needled Mom said...

I won my first one and have given them as gifts ever since. They are really fabulous. I'd give it as a gift.

Michele T said...

I would use it for quilting in the evenings, my lamp just doesn't cut it!!

Sewgirl said...

I like to do my handwork: redwork, stitching on bindings, clipping threads, etc while watching TV (gotta do something to keep the mind going!). A Beam and Read would work terrific during that time.

MaryT said...

Been a follower for ages. Currently following with Bloglovin. Thanks for giveaway!

nicolesender said...

What a great light! I would use the light when I quilt and sew at night! It would be such a help to me!

JoyceLM said...

My eyesight gets worse the older I get. I'd use it for hand sewing, knitting & reading. Thanks.

Janarama said...

I would use this light to do stitching at night and during gloomy days too! I'd also use it when crocheting, reading, and when cleaning my sewing machine (to see all the nooks and crannies). My eyes are older than yours and I also have cataracts (beginning stages) so the more light, the better! Thank you for the chance to win!

Willa said...

More light is always what I am seeking!

I'll be 50 in Febuary and in the last year I've noticed the need for more light and glasses. Hand sewing at night would be so much more enjoyable if I could see without straining my eyes.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Oh I would love to be able to do handwork while the family is watching a movie~ they don't like my big light next to my chair. ;-) Thanks for the fun!

Crickets Corner said...

I'm a longtime follower via Bloglovin and would use the light at night since I'm a total night owl and I could do handwork.

Barbara Ensor said...

Age plus bad eyes equals need. Thanks for a chance to win

I would use the Beam and Read for doing more hand stitching. Let's face it after 50 we do less of things that are "hard to see" if we don't have the light for it.

KatheG said...

This looks like a great item needed to stitch and read. Thanks.

Allie said...

I won one on one of your give-aways and I LOVE it - so I'm not going to enter, lol!!! I too find I need more and more light every year, and this really does the trick, especially with the short days we're having!

Carol C Thomas said...

I need LIGHT. Tis sad. It would be great having both LIGHT and FREE hands. Nice tool and giveaway.

Joyce Carter said...

I love to read, especially at night while hubby watches T.V. and I do a lot of sewing, but it is getting harder for me to see and do the things I love. I am definitely over 50 so this light would be a tremendous help. Thank you for the giveaway.(I follow)

Beth said...

What a great giveaway! Thank you for the chance to win one of these fabulous lights.

Kathie said...

Maybe it would help me sew on binding better!

Vicki H said...

As I reluctantly admit that my vision is not as good as it used to be, I would really appreciate owning one of these Beam and Read lights. Thanks!

Teresa said...

Ooohhh I would love to have one of those. I am planning to teach myself how to hand quilt, plus I read at night before going to sleep. This would be a great thing to have for both! Thank you for the opportunity!

Donna Cutting said...

Now this is the light I need for my hand crafting. My mom would finally be able to get neigh light for her projects. Thanks

Rilene said...

I could sure use one of these for reading in bed or for embroidery work!

barbara woods said...

Sarah said...

I follow via bloglovin. sarah@forrussia.org

Kathy E. said...

Wow! These look really cool! I'm a 50+er myself and need a lot of light, including my cheaters, to see what I'm doing. I would use this in bed when my honey's sleeping and I'm up late reading. I'd also use it in the summertime on the porch as I read or hand-sew so I don't have to turn on the porch light that attracts bugs.

Beth said...

I have migraines, and lamps or bright lights can exacerbate my headache. It would be great to have a light source that pointed at whatever I'm reading, not at my eyes.

Nancy said...

I have a older Kindle (with no backlight) so this would come in handy on roadtrips! Plus, I'd use it when I'm sewing in the bedroom and hubby is "sleeping"

We like low light in our house so I would like to be able to stitch in the evenings but I need more light. These shorter days mean less stitching!

Colleen said...

To do handwork or read while traveling

Sharon said...

I, too, need more light when reading or sewing. Especially hand embroidery. I didn't know that about blue light. The new cars that have them just really hurt my eyes at night. Thanks

Becki said...

Love the looks of that light. Better than the camping headlamp I use now. Thanks for the opportunity.

sew.darn.quilt said...

My little corner of our livingroom is my fortress of solitude, however it's as black as a bull's belly! I like to cross stitch or read in the evenings and become very frustrated when I can't see what I'm doing!
Thank you for the chance :)

sarah.dhedhi said...

would love to win this

Suze said...

I agree - these lights would make my holidays bright(er)!

Josie McRazie said...

What a great tool!

annmarie said...

I have a 90 year old friend who still quilts & reads a lot. A Beam N Read would be great for her.

Diane Beavers said...

While wrapped up in my latest quilt project while stitching on the binding by hand. I seem to always do that at night or when it's dark so the light will be super handy and appreciated. Thank you for sharing!

Nancy said...

Thank you so much! I am so excited!
