Announcing the Winners!

We have winners! The SMS Giveaway was definitely a fun way to get to know people and hear their thoughts about making and creating. So great to hear the thoughtful {and often, heartfelt} comments regarding why all of us seem to need this in our lives! I smiled, laughed out loud and nodded my head so much that my neck is sore today.

Well, that might be because of the way I slept last night, but still, you get the idea.

My youngest daughter chose the winning papers out of the bowl for me. She's helpful like that since we tend to do things the old fashioned way around here! So without further ado the winners:

The #1 winner {getting the book and a pattern} is:
Brenda  I like that you describe yourself as a maker. That's a word I've used about myself forever. A little boy I used to take care of (now in his mid-twenties) once asked me, "How come you always have to be makin' somethin'?" It was tough to come up with an answer that satisfied a 5-year old, when my real answer is simply "Because." I've been like that since I was a kid, coming up with ways to make what I wanted. From using Kleenex and tape to make Barbie clothes and peach crates and left over hot pink enamel bathroom paint to make a doll couch to disassembling anything that didn't work (and some that did), just for the challenge of "making" them again. I just gotta. Because.

The #2 and #3 winners {getting a pattern only} are:
Jovanna  I love using inspiration from fabric
kelley  I make things with needle and hook because I can't paint...the drive to create has been with me since heart and soul are soothed by the repetitive motions of hooking or hand stitching...I follow your're on my sidebar...

I'll be emailing the winners as well, but if I don't hear back by Tuesday, then I'll have to draw another winner! Hopefully I can get these mailed out the first of next week. A big thanks to everyone that participated!
