The Giveaway Winner!

It’s with great pleasure that I announce the winner of the Pansy Candle mat is

Deb of Crows on the Cupola  !!

Congratulations Deb!

She’s been notified and the candle mat will go out in the mail today.

It’s always soooo much fun to read the giveaway winner reactions when they email me back with their address.

Deb was just a bit excited.  Haha.

To all the rest of you.  Thank you all for the lovely comments.  I’ve had such a great blogging year because of all of you. 

There’ve been some ups and downs along the way and there was a short, brief time that I seriously considered quitting because of a bad apple out there in the internet world.  Because of  all of you and your sincere encouragements and kindness, I stuck through the nastiness and I sooo glad that I did.  

You ladies are the best.  Keep watching … I love doing giveaways so there will be more to come!

Happy Day everyone!

Deb is one lucky gal! That mat is simply beautiful and I hope you'll share some tips someday on how to hand-dye those petals! :))

Congrats to Deb!! She is one lucky gal! I see that she is also from Minnesota so maybe one day I can go and view your piece of art at her place. :-)
And regarding that "bad apple" .....I immediately started humming that Jackson Five song.."One Bad Apple don't spoil the whole darn bunch". LOL! However, it does leave a bad taste in one's mouth, doesn't it? Keep blogging, keep designing. Love your work!

Congrats to Deb! She will love the mat! I am glad you stayed. It is bad when there are mean people. I don't get it. I guess it is sad there are so many unhappy people in the world. Glad we aren't them! ;)
Hugs, Lisa

I am happy that you are still with us Cathy. Don't ever let anyone discourage you from doing what you love, unfortunately some folks have a hard time finding peace & harmony within themselves. I so enjoy reading your blog and admiring all your wonderful handmades.
