Giveaway Day!!!

Hello All!
I have missed you all being away these past two weeks!
Today is my Birthday! 
I am 53 years young
I am thank Full for each and every year
And I am eager for more!

Art and Soul was fabulous!
Meeting up with friends and soldering with Sally were the highlights of the trip.


 Dear blogging friends Jan from A Journey and Marlynn from Honeysuckle Breeze  and I attended together.
I had never met Jan in person before, even though we have known each other for about 3 years now.
We thoughouly enjoyed driving to get there and sharing a room. Marlynn and I met online at about the same time and at the same place as Jan and I...Paperwhimsy, but we have been lucky enough to meet up already and spend a fab day together last year.
Even though we all took different classes we had tremendous fun!
We made time for fun afterwards as well! Here we are at vendor night......vendor night!
Wow! Seriously good stuff!
Art and Soul is a really creative space, so many interesting classes, and so many wonderful people to meet!
I am hoping to attend next year as well.


I have admired Sally Jean Alexander's Style of art for a few years now, it was a pleasure to meet her!
She taught us the basics of soldering and I didn't even burn a finger!
I am ready to practice, practice and practice some more to improve!


I could not believe the tiny little chair we were to begin with.
It is just over two inches high! But I did it! Yay!
We created tiny collages to go between the glass,
I used some old foreign money that my class mate Michelle so generously shared.

I have worked on several pieces, but I can assure you....I need more practice Lol!

now......
It is time to announce my Giveaway!!!

I put everyone's names into a hat (who wanted the same prizes, the different prizes did make picking the winners more difficult!lol!)......And here is how it came out....


 Of the three gifts, the bracelet, the Crafty Secrets CD and the free Altered Domino Book Class....
Here are the winners!!!!!  Yay!


Congratulations to Carmelina for winning the fabulous CD!!!

Congratulations to June for winning the Spring Bracelet!!!

Congratulations to Linda for winning the Altered Domino Book Class!!!
(I have linked up their names to their blogs so you all can go and visit them!)
As always, I wish I had one of these for each and everyone of you!
You are all dear to me, and I appreciate all your very kind comments.
Welcome to all the new visitors too!
Thank you for participating in my Giveaway!

 I have so much to share this week. I will be back tomorrow for Tea Cup Tuesday, and then an artist share, and I will be sharing some more jewelry too.

Have a beautiful and creative week!
Hugs,
Terri

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERRI! Wishing you a day filled with lots of family and love. I am so glad you had a wonderful time on your trip. The chair is just adorable. Soldering is something I have been dying to learn to do. Although I have videos that show how to do it, I feel I would be more comfortable having someone show me the first time. Maybe someday someone will hold a class near me and I can attend.

Elaine Allen

P.S. Congratulations to the winners!
