8th Winner Announced

First, my apologies for allowing this to get so off-track.  I've definitely learned a lesson for the next time I do a give away (if I ever do one again LOL!).  Stopping to take all the pictures and trying to fit that in with the rest of my demanding schedule has been more difficult than I originally anticipated, but I should be able to get this back on track and get it finished off so everyone can get their goodies!

I also ran into an envelope issue...in that I ran out of the right size of envelopes, made a trip to Staples to get more and only realized when I was getting ready to mail that I had accidentally bought the wrong size so that the books don't fit.  I've got to get back to Staples, return them, and get the right size. 

Sigh.

Anyway, here's what the next winner will receive:


 
 
A copy of the "Beader's Color Mixing Directory" by Sandra Wallace.  This is an awesome color theory book.  Not only does it give project ideas and color theme ideas, but it even helps with determining the proportions of colors within a theme and then matches


 
 
This focal is paper over wood and is meant to look like fossilized coral.
 

 
 
Silver rose pendant.
 

 
 
Ceramic rose bud charm.
 

 
 
Perfect for summer - juicy lampwork glass watermelon charms.
 

 
 
Clockwise from top:  polymer clay/brass bird charm, ceramic honey bee charm, soldered glass/photo charm (it's a mirror on the other side), and two silver padlock charms.
 

 
 
Paper wood and resin butterfly charm with tiny pearl embellishments and ceramic butterfly square pendant.
 

 
 
Strand of vintage Lucite red beads and white "daisy" caps - I picked these up at an antique store and they came pre-strung with a clasp, but I always thought it would be great to take them apart and use them sprinkled throughout various designs.
 

 
 
Iridescent purple ceramic beads.
 

 
 
Varios fibers, dyed silk ribbon, etc.
 

 
 
Cute strand of lampwork glass snowmen and coordinating red, green and white beads.
 
And the lucky winner is:  Ginger Bishop.  Please email me with your address and I'll get your package out to you as soon as I solve the envelope situation :-)

Congrats to the winner! I used the angel wing pendant with some pearls in a blog hop I was a part of.
