And The WINNER is . . . . . . . . .


Today is the day! I am very happy to announce that the WINNER of my blog candy celebration is Valery Ann a.k.a. 'Mrs. A'! Congratulations Valery!

She lives in Hampshire, England and her comment of Friday, 11/12 said:

"Just got my computer fixed in time!!! Have added you to my side bar and been a follower for a while. Now 1stly you don't look old enough to be 70yrs. Congratulations on your forthcoming celebrations. 2ndly. My favourite colour combination? Well thats easy. Pink and erm pink! Love your blog. It's a real Hoot. (Sorry couldn't resist that.) Thanks for the chance to win all that lush candy".

In case you think that her winning was influenced by her very kind comment about my age - truly it wasn't! :<) My good friend Sal did the drawing for me and here is a photo of her holding the winning comment from 'Mrs. A'. Thank you Sal!

Valery's blog is called "It's An Alien Life" - due to a 'not so understanding hubby who considers Art & Crafting an Alien existence which I insist on occupying' - love it! :<) She is a fellow dollmaker in addition to being a creator of many crafts. Here are photos of one of her wonderful dolls! Isn't she a cutie?

You can check out her blog at and see all of her creations!

So my first blog candy celebration comes to an end. It was great fun and I am in awe of all of the many wonderful comments that were sent in! I wamted to celebrate my birthday and reaching 100 followers and I now have over 200 followers and this is so amazing!

Thank you all for entering the contest and for posting of my blog candy on your blogs and also for becoming a follower! In the following week I will try to visit each and every one of you on your blogs and see what you are creating! :<)

Thanks for stopping by today! Winter is coming closer in this part of WI - snow is on the way! I am not ready for this - every year it gets harder and the winter months last longer and the weather is much colder - old age has caught up with me! :<)

Wishing you a week of everything good! Hopefully I will be posting again soon! Sometimes life just wears you down and the weariness takes over. I have started to work on some projects and hope to share them soon! :<)
