WooHoo!!! Big winner announced... plus a surprise!!!

I just got an email from Jo. It seems there where so many awesome studios this year she had a hard time choosing just one!! So I am very happy to announce there will be three lucky gals getting a photo shoot in Where Women Create. And so.... drum roll please......... oh, this is so exciting!!!

Suzan of Old Grey Mare is our first lucky gal!! Suzan's studio is full of so much rustic charm, I totally see why Jo picked her. Our next lucky winner is Karla Nathan from Karla's Cottage. It's frilly and girly and full of the most yummy goodies! And last, but not least..your friend and mine... June from Laughing with Angels! June's studio is the epitome of white done right! I cannot wait to see all these gals grace the pages of Where Women Create. I am so happy for them.!!!!!

I also wanted to let you guys know that the link is up and running to take you to the Where Bloggers Create blog, where all the direct links are being housed this year. It is on my right sidebar near the top. For those of you who are still working through all the studios, you will find it much easier now to find the posts because there are all linked directly to their studio tours.

Congrats again to all three winners.!!!!

Congrats to all three ladies! Well deserved....can't wait to see you in the pages of WWC!

My Arts Desire said...

Once again, a HUGE thank you for all the time and love you invested in this amazing tour! I still have not been through all of the list but will eventually get there. The studios of these three ladies are indeed all winners! Speaking for myself, {but I would guess there are many more than just me} also feel that if not for your wonderful tour, our creative spaces would still be a whopping, disorganized mess!!! Hence, in addition to these named winners, there are untold numbers of us who are just giddy over finally having a workable space to play, dream, and create in...and all because of WONDERFUL YOU! Xo, Sue

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Congrats to all 3 winners!!!! Well deserved.

Gail said...

I'm so excited for all the winners, although I think everyone who has created their own space to create is a winner anyway!
It was so fun to see all the fabulous studios and take away some ideas for my own space.
Congratulations to the three winners!!!!! You must be so very excited :).

Congratulations! I'm not surprised there are three winners - so many wonderful studios!

June said...

Karen, I don't think any of us who took part in this party can ever thank you enough for your amazing idea and all the hard work you have done to make this happen for all of us. It gives us so much pleasure to share with others our hopes and our dreams and the beauty that we try to create in our lives. With so much in the world that is negative, we need outlets such as this to fill up our spirits.
Thank you and Jo for this amazing honor.

I'm so excited that I'm actually a little sick right now. LOL!

Lisa said...

Congrats to them all! How great to see them again in print!
Hugs, Lisa

Hi Karen,

I said from the beginning that I couldn't imagine how Jo would ever decide on only ONE studio. :0) There were so many that showed up to shine their magical spaces.

I'm so happy she will be featuring these three lucky ladies and their creative spaces...all of them are beautiful.

I'm already looking forward to next year's party! Thanks for all of the energy and time you have taken this year to host this party for us....and I do hope that Jo and her wonderful magazine will be part of the party again. What fun this has been.

Now...go try and take a mini-staycation!

Stephanie ♥

How wonderful to pick three ! Congrats to all the ladies I will be looking forward to seeing more of their spaces.

I know that I am being repetitive in my thank you's, but I must... for the gratitude I have for you and your hard work with the 2 WBC parties is responsible for all the fun I have had the past three days. Hearing from sooo many old and new friends has been humbling and overwhelming but oh, so much fun.

You and Jo bring people together in such a positive way and we in the blogging community understand it is far more valuable than just pretty pictures and design ideas, though those also brighten our days.

It offers us all support, friendship, understanding and love. Powerful ideas and feelings that change the world.


Jill said...

Hi, Karen
I am so happy I found your blog through Sassy Mini Dolls. Your party is amazing and by visiting different creative rooms it helps me to figure out how I want to do my creative retreat. Thanks for doing it!

Karen - I am so very happy for June - Karla and the other winner. I know June and Karla and it was so fun to see them win!!

I have a friend who is wanting to make a sweet little craft sewing room out of her utility room and was going to send her the lind to all the blogs that had linked up but can not find it. Is it no longer available? I hadn't gotten though the whole list either as we have been out of town here and there. If you could help me find the link post I would so appreciate it!

I love your creative room too! All that yummy fluffy white- oh so pretty!

bee blessed

Dummy me- I found the link that you graciously posted! For some reason my mind just didn't read that last paragraph!!

Artzy Heart said...

Dear Karen....I have to thank you for your beautiful, inspiring blog. Last year my lovely daughter introduced me to the studio challenge, and I vowed that I would carve out a better space for me and my art.
Although I signed up this year, Mom's sudden illness stopped me for a few weeks, so I set myself the deadline of July 24 (last year's date).
My before photos show you the what it was BEFORE your inspration. I can NEVER thank you enough!

Rebecca said...

Hi Karen! I am so excited about the winners for the Where Bloggers Create party. I am rejoicing with them! Thank you so much for hosting this great event. Take care! Rebecca

Congratulations to the Winners!

And a big THANK YOU to Karen for organizing the event! I'm still visiting the blogs that participated and enjoying every minute of it. :D

Mary said...

Congratulations to all! I'm so pleased that June won ~ Hers was my absolute favorite studio I had the pleasure of visiting! I found myself coveting A LOT of things I saw in her photos, especially those flowered china bowls for one. What a great event! I just purchased my first WWC magazine (the Aug/Sept/Oct issue) and look forward to seeing the next one, which I assume will feature the awesome studios of the winners!
