I'm a Winner!

Yes, I'm a winner! Now I don't want that to sound conceited- I mean I have won a giveaway. I was the lucky winner in Marie Alton's birthday draw over at SRE Deluxe and my beautiful beaded snowflake arrived in yesterday's mail. It is on a stick pin, and I think it's going to look great on my black winter coat. Not that I'm anxious for cold weather and winter coats, but won't it look snazzy? The beads and crystals really sparkle in the light; the snowflake measures 2" across. Thanks so much Marie! You're the best!
It was a beautiful day here today- we reached 15F! I spent all afternoon working outside and got all my hosta beds cut down, weeded a good part of the vegetable garden plot to ready it for tilling, dumped out the last hanging pots and planters, etc. etc. I am tired tonight!! Think I'll sit down now with some cross-stitch and head to bed early... Good Night!

Hello Ms. Lucky!
I see your gift arrived safely! I'm thrilled that you love it ... I thought it was so "you"!

I've completed over 80 of the 100 that I challenged myself to do ... but can see that I'll surpass that!

Some have been turned into pins ... others into pendants ... and even more have become earrings.
The in-betweens will be ornaments.

As I mentioned in my BD post ... planning on having them available for purchase ... but still working out how to msrket in person to staff & friends as well as on-line ... hmmm.

Congrats again! Hugs ... Marie
