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.!!!!

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!

Have your heard the buzzzz????


Many of you have probably seen this cute button or something similar popping up all over Blogland. If you haven't clicked on it and been over for a visit let me introduce you to Sarah and the gals over at The Blog Guidebook. When I first went over for a visit this site was pretty new, but I was blown away by it. I thought to myself... "Finally! A place to go to search for new blogs that share my interests!" What makes them different from other blog "catalogs" is their categories. In other sites like it, the categories that were offered to place our blogs in were very vague. We could place them in "Life styles-Home and Garden" but, that lumps us into every kind of Home and Garden blog out there. In The Blog Guidebook we can place our blogs right in a specific categories that pertain to us. Here is a sampling of some of the categories:
Arts and Crafts
Cottage and Country
Fabric, Sewing and Quilting
Flea Markets and Antiques
Gardening
Thrifting, Junking and Collecting
Vintage and White

See what I mean!!! It's fabulous!!! Think of all the new and wonderful blogs we could find if everyone signed up! You can place a simple listing for FREE! Or, you can put your blog button on there for a very reasonable fee. I listed Valentine Design in a few of the categories I thought pertained to me.
Anyway, I was very impressed by the whole site, so when they contacted me and asked if I would like to be featured on their front page in the Spotlight section I was thrilled! If you would like to check it out you can click here to go visit them! I hope you will all consider listing your blogs over there. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

See you there!!!
