First of all, thank you so much for all the wonderful gushing comments. I loved reading them just like I knew I would. I read them all more than once. I'm still trying to get around to each blog to thank you. I should have never saved them up to do all at once. But I was in such a painting mode with my new sister painting that I thought I would wait. Big mistake. But I will get around to each and every one of you if you have a blog.
I have a winner and here is how it happened. I know I said I would draw a name. But how would you know if I did or didn't? I have never done that number generator thing and didn't want to figure that out. I didn't want to number all the comments. I didn't want to spend time writing down the names to draw. I didn't want to print and cut the little slips to draw. I didn't want to follow the rules and so on and so on and sooooooo,
When there was just enough comments, and realizing that I simply did not have enough time to do any of those other methods, and wishing I had enough sisters to send one to each and everyone of you, I had a grand enough plan.
So, I went back and read all the comments again. Looking for one word. Did I give you enough clues?
Sure enough, one person had used "my word for 2008" in her comment. Therefore, she is the winner. And here is her comment:
Would be a blast to be lucky enough to have a beautiful piece in my home."
There is a second place winner, who made a comment and then also sent me a sweet email. It was while reading her email that said, "..... and I can't tell you enough how your work inspires me!..." It was joanne who has a blogger profile but not blog. That was my inspiration to look for the winner who used my word for 2008.
I'm just saying, that's how our brain works. Our being mine and Norah'S. The wedding party picture with the bridesmaid is well underway. I just had to show you this little snippet. You know they all wanted to be in the picture with there shower curtain dresses and wildflower bouquets. So it is taking me a while to finish. You know I will show you when I do.
Enough for now,
