OWOH Winners, a Surprise, and More Good News!

I have OWOH Winners! But first, let me say, what a great final year for OWOH - I loved exploring some new blogs (though I did not make it to all 800+ of them, did anyone?) and finding ones that I want to follow all year long, and as ever, I love the kind comments left by all my visitors - thank you! And welcome to all of my new followers - I look forward to making new connections with all of you this year too, and hope 2011 is a beautiful, colorful, creative year for all of us.

OK, on to the Winners!

The first prize, Poppy the Bird Bead, goes to: Sylvia, at Baxter's Mom

The second prize, the peace bead, goes to Grace at Grace Beading.

The third prize, goes to Diane at Turn Left at the Pigs

And the fourth prize, Claire the Bird Bead, goes to: Marie at Art from My Heart

and.... now for The Surprise:

A fifth winner! This is a mystery prize, which, let me tell you, is a heart pendant that I made out of this bead:

This fifth prize goes to Itaya at Itaya Art.

Congrats to all my winners! I will email you next. And for the rest of you, as my son said to me just now, "The only thing I hate about your give-away? Is the 200 hundred people who don't win." I agree. I hope the other 230 of you win things at the other blogs, and that you made some new friends - I know I did!

And , now, for the Good News:

Lisa Swifka, the originator of OWHO, is going to be hosting a similar, but different event next year called OWOA - Our World Our Art - and it's going to be great! So head to her site and read about it and sign up for her newsletter. Exciting!
