Well, I haven't yet updated you all on the things that I should be updating, like part 2 of the appendix story (short version: everyone is surprised by my speedy recovery!) but in my defense, catching up on the schoolwork I missed while in the hospital is no small task. Anyhow, don't worry about OWOH, because I am here to announce the winners of this marvelous event! Also, I am overwhelmed by the plethora of comments and kind words you have all given me this past week. I seriously seriously want to give prizes to everyone. Because you are so cool! And you all have these totally rad blogs that I'm still visiting and enjoying! But alas, I have limited finances and resources, so I have to settle for 3 winners. Oh, did I say 3? That's right. BONUS WINNER!
So, here's the deal. I got so into this whole wire and dice thing that I made some more earrings. Is that cool? I just couldn't help myself. So, here are the first two of my randomly chosen winners with new and improved pictures!!!
Congratulations to Gail, commenter #4, who wins the d4 earrings! She is an amazing storyteller and I was definitely giggling to myself as I was reading through her blog. You are such a warmly caring person Gail, and I am so glad to have met you through this event. I also refute your statement that you have no authentic creative talents to share, because your writing is so creative and you share so much of it with us. Hope you enjoy this little doorprize!
Now, since I promised I'd add another prize if I got over 100 entries, congratulations are in order for Deci, who has a wonderful blog called Gem Trails full of copious amounts of information for aspiring jewelry artists and wannabe's like me. I almost feel bad passing off my shoddy beginner work to such a pro, but I've found at least as a knitter that I so often give away all my knitting that it's delightful and so much more meaningful to receive knitting from someone else. So Deci, congratulations, and I hope you enjoy these wire-wrapped d10's (see? There's a crazy unintentional theme going on here with the dice numbers and winners... God totally has a sense of humour) that rather surprised me with how nicely they turned out as I whipped them together at the last minute today. I shall be back to your blog again and again I'm sure, as I branch out into more adventurous jewelry crafting.
And wait, don't go yet, there's a BONUS PRIZE! Yes, that's right, one extra prize, but NOT chosen by random. The last winner is chosen by meeeee, and I feel quite justified in bringing some choosification here at the end cause it was a last-minute decision on my part, and I wanted to do something for someone who left me a really fun comment leading to a really fun blog, thereby expanding my friendships in blogdom. And there were lots, and I love them, but I have to say, my choice this round goes to Sunshineshelle, whose self-proclaimed talent is eating leftovers (LOL!) but is actually quite an amazing artist with a whole family chock-full of artistic talent. So, for you lovely Shelle, just for being you, I present these one-of-a-kind d8 earrings, again just a tad mis-matched because I bet you roll like that too ;)
I'll be contacting the winners momentarily, and hopefully they send me their addresses before the weekend so I can get these all mailed out.
Thanks to everyone who played in OWOH! Hope to see you around! And I really will get back to regular blogging soon, promise!
