FANTASTIC!

Well, now that I have finished my draw, I can take time out to revel in my own winnings. I won two giveaways. I am so excited about them.

The first is a georgeous pair of earrings from Angela at funkycatstudio.com I think Angela was worried because I was giving away earrings, but I live for earrings, and it’s always wonderful to have some made by someone else, just as it is great to buy them from a shop. These are the earrings. I love them, and can’t wait to wear them. they are exactly what I would have chosen for myself! (And I’m not just saying that!)

Then I was lucky to have a second win, this time  from Antonelli’s website…http://www.quilling.blogspot.com/. Now this was particuarly amazing because it is down to Antonelli’s site that I became aware of the One World – One Heart event. I was looking for some information about quilling, something I love to see, but have never tried. I Googled ‘quilling’ and found her wonderful site, which explains what quilling is and how to get started with some of the basic shapes. There are free patterns too. I am dying to have a go! Anyway, having been made aware of the contest, I decided to participate and whilst I was entering all the draws, I kept wishing I could remember where I had first seen the information about it. When I won my beautiful giveawy on Antonelli’s blog, I suddenly realised. This was where it had all started. This is the lady I have to blame for all the fun and excitement of the last few days. As a thank you to her, I am going to send her a reciprocal gift. This is my Santa giveaway, made by Antonelli, and yes…Quilled! I am very excited.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, Angela and Antonelli. Both blogs will be added to my blogroll, as will quite a few of the blogs of other participants.

 

I still have some cards to finish making for the second prize winner, but I should have them done very soon. I am now looking forward to reading all these blogs and seeing all the creative things other people do. There is such a wealth of talent. Aren’t we so lucky to have a tool that enables us to contact people thousands of miles away and share our lives with them? Whatever the disadvantages of the internet, there are overwhelming advantages too. If only people would appreciate it and not abuse it!

I have enjoyed this experience so much that I am going to have a weekly giveaway, so watch this space for more info!

    I am so happy that you are excited about receiving your gift and were first interested in quilling and that is how you came to find out about OW-OH. This was such a wonderful event, can’t wait for the next one.
