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!!!

  13. 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!

  15. 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.

  55. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  56. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  57. 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"

  59. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  60. To do handwork or read while traveling

    ReplyDelete
  61. 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

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

    ReplyDelete
  63. 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 :)

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  66. 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!
