I've got some really exciting news to share with you, but I'll wait until tomorrow to do that, because today is all about THE GIVEAWAY!
Random.org generated the winning numbers. Based on the order the names came up, I checked to see if that friend had expressed a preference among the beads. If so, and if an earlier draw hadn't already claimed it, that person's name went on the bead. I'm happy (and vaguely amazed) that there were no conflicting requests!
(Drumroll, please) Here are the results:
Karen Williams gets the green swirlies from Thornburg Bead Studio
Kristen gets the red lampwork earring pair from Fire Goddess
Michelle Bowman gets the daytime owl from Forever Young Creations
(again, I swear the bead is upright, even if I can't get the photo to show that way to save my life!)
Christine Altmiller gets the night owl from Forever Young Creations
Ladies, please email me your address so that I can get these beauties off to you. And thanks for hanging out with me!
