WINNER! and happy mail....


















One thing I love about blogging are the opportunities we have to meet amazing people from all over the world!  Creative and generous bloggers from everywhere!  One day I stumbled upon Tara Anderson's blog and thought "oh my!" ..you know that kind of eye candy that strikes a chord within?  Oh yes, Tara's designs speak to my heart with her colorful layers, vintage-y pieces and new uses for common things. I read through several different back posts and at one point found myself reading her statements about towns right around me!  Come to find out, Tara did some growing up in my neck of the woods and that just seemed so exciting to me!  Kinda like going halfway around the blog world and back to find out your neighbor is blogging right next door to you.  Tara no longer lives in my area, but like I said, it was a unique experience.  Generous Tara offered up a blog candy drawing and guess what?  I was the lucky girl who was picked!  Above is the picture of my prize all wrapped up in sewing pattern tissue paper and hand assembled trim plus a surprise package of Elle's studio product.
Just look what is inside?!!!!?!  Tara sent me one of her adorable handpunched and sewed Paper Garlands!  Right now, it is criss crossing across a vintage barn window turned picture frame in my scrap room.  Makes me smile whenever I look at it.

And now, for my own giveaway...time to find out who the lucky winner of a package of Bloomers from Websters...................................
Lucky number 15 is:
