Winners! 500 post celebration : ^ )

 Very scientifically, I cut my paper list apart . . . there were 35 names!

I enlisted the help of my husband Steven to pick 5 names  . . . 
He is demonstrating that he did not look at the names!

He chose 5 strips of paper with these names on them . . . .  

#1. Free online workshop of your choice = was won by Maggie from: Just add Glitter and Stir :  ^ ) 

#2. Collage Pack from my stash = was won by Judi from: Judi's Crazy World

#3. A Pile of beautiful fabric = was won by Elaine Akers from: Elaine's Creative Works

#4. Free Creative Swaps Registration = was won by Diane D.

#5. Art by me, made for YOU = was won by Tristan Robin Blakeman of: Enchanted Revelries

C o n g r a t u l a t i o n s ! ! !

I wanted to celebrate this milestone of 500 posts in a little over 3 years and this give-away was certainly a fun way to do it. Truthfully, the best part for me was receiving your comments. Here is a selection:

"I have been enjoying your posts for awhile now . . .  Your work is always something to look forward to . . . I have always enjoyed your friendship and art. . . . You are to be commended on keeping all of us artfully connected . . . Your blog is always full of wonderful things to behold. Maybe one day we'll meet in person! . . . What a milestone this is and I am so glad that I have had a seat on the journey . . . 500 posts!! Doesn't time fly when you're having fun, getting married, moving house (several times) and making art! . . . Thanks for the opportunity - and for 500 posts worth of inspiration and friendship!" 

A lot of you commented who do not usually, and that in  itself was the biggest gift of all for me - thank you!!! Those of you who won, I will be emailing you and just let me know your mailing address or whenever you are ready to start one of my online workshops or join in the current creative swap or the next!
