January Give-Away Winner!!!

So I apologize for making you wait so long, but I had to get the 5 year-old drawing machine out of bed, then it was off to the gym to work out, then the camera battery died so I couldn’t download the pictures to the computer, then it was lunch time, then it was “how do I entertain my child so I can get some work done without plonking her down in front of the TV?”…

Here I am checking the list one last time to make sure I had everyone’s name down…

away1
Next I carefully cut out each entry…all 118 of them…

away2
Then I folded each paper up in an origami-like fashion to fit them in the hopper…

away3
Next I coaxed the machine to put all of the entries in a hopper of her choice (sparkly turquoise easter basket) and pick just one…such power in one little hand…

away4
Here is the winning name…the little hand holding the key to someone’s happiness for the day…

And the winner is…wait for it…

Yay Kelli of  PaperWorlds on Blogspot!  See, it worked for her to post on her blog and receive three entries!  Thanks to everyone who entered.  I truly wish I could give everyone something.  Please don’t be upset if you didn’t win…I had so much fun with this one that I feel a February give-away coming on, especially since it will be So I Gathered’s one year anniversary!  An enameled heart perhaps…

So, Kelli, send me your snail mail addy and I will ship off your prize to you!  I added a sterling jump ring at the top that I soldered closed with one of those electrical soldering machines.  Waaaaay fun because you can solder without worrying about heat and use it around materials like enamels.  Thanks again to everyone…it was great “meeting” so many new people!!  Have a great weekend and stay tuned!
