And the WINNER(s) of the Giveaway.......

Oh boy, this blog party was quite an event!  So many blogs to visit, so many visitors that came here!  I owe a big thank you to Vicki for organizing an event that brought so many of us together---what a very generous undertaking on her part!!!

This morning I put all 94 of your names in the hopper and randomly selected........

LAURIE at Indulge Your Shelf  as the winner of my main giveaway!!  Congrats, Laurie!

Since I was making a bunch of the lace charms, I decided to have a second drawing for a MINI-PRIZE, and the winner of that is TANYA from Bead and Needle!! After Laurie chooses her charm from the 5 I'm making, Tanya can choose her favorite from the remaining four.  I'll pop the rest of them into my Etsy shop.

I apologize to those of you who left wonderful, thoughtful comments to which I haven't yet responded---I still hope to connect back to you.  It got a little overwhelming!  I am THRILLED to have made new friendships and equally happy to have many of you as new followers. THANK YOU to everyone that stopped by! The door is always open---I hope you visit often!!


  1. I was just on here, finishing up my own "stuff" and this popped up on my blog absolutely ROCK!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you...I am thinking a "swap" might be in order between you and I, at this point (I drew a second name as well, this morning)...would love for you to have something of mine, as well! I know this is going to be a "go-to" blog for me from here on out - LOVE this little spot of yours. If you'll email me at, we can swap mailing addresses. In the meantime, happy weekend...make it safe and happy! Tanya
