Whew!!! I'm finally finished... and winners announced!

Well it only took me 3 weeks, but I finally made it through the whole list!!!! The participants in the party this year blew me away with their creativity, their ingenuity, and their amazing assortment of supplies!!! I could only wish to have half of the goodies many of you have filled your studios with. Thank you so much to everyone who participated and everyone who just came to visit. I couldn't have done it without you! I will keep the list up on my blog throught the end of the month and then it will be available on the "Where Bloggers Create" blog. (I will have a link to it on my sidebar)

I know you have all been anxious to hear who one the prizes. I am happy to announce the winners for the goodies from Where Women Create, but Jo still needs to look through a few more blogs before she makes the final decision of the photo shoot winner. And so without further adieu... the random winners!!!

Cerri from The Little Pink Studio and Stephanie from Art of Stuff won the Free 1 yr magazine subscription to Where Women Create.

Marcy from Queen Marcy Originals and Sherry from Blessings from Our Nest won the sets of wonderful books written by Jo Packham herself.

and Cherie from Humble Pie Designs and Violet from Create Beauty won those pretty charm bracelets.

Congratulations to all the winners!!! I promise as soon as I hear from Jo about the big winner I will let you know!!!

Again, thank you all so much for making this years party a smashing success! I think we all made some new friends and gathered up enough creative inspiration to get us through until next year!

Thanks everyone for sharing. I'll join you next year.

Congrats to all the winners! I'm still making my way through the blogs - up to the "T"s now after being forced into a small break from the computer.

It's been so much fun, traveling all over the world & never leaving home, getting great ideas and inspiration, FOLLOWING & meeting new crafters. Just the ticket in this crummy economy to lift a girl's spirits!

Hopefully, next year, I can enter MY she-cave, though it won't be as nice as most of the ladies that participated this year...you're all AMAZING!
