Kick Up Your Heels! We Have a Winner, Folks!

Yes, indeed! Today's the day to announce the winner of the free custom greeting cards from UPrinting.

The True Random Number Generator spun up the number 15 ...
which means, none other than Anne from el Milagro Studio is the winner! This seems perfectly fair and right in the world of balance, as Anne had a lot - I mean a lot - of people saying they were referred here by her which gave her about a gazillion more chances to win!

Congratulations, Anne! I will forward your information to UPrinting, and they will contact you about designing your cards. (Just FYI - when I won a prize on another blog from them, it took a while for them to contact me. But the results are marvelous!)

If anybody else is interested in the custom printing available from UPrinting, click here for greeting cards, here for envelopes, here for business cards - or use their menu for their many services offered. I got my business cards printed - two sided - and I just love the way they look.

Enough of contests and winning and losing! - let's just look at some pretty pictures instead...
Now, go make something beautiful!

Congrats to Anne!
I know she'll love her postcards as much as I love mine!
You're so high tech, Tristan! My random generator consists of asking my husband to pick a number between one and whatever...

Congrats to Anne. Who do you think referred me to your blog, none other than our Anne and glad she did!

Going to take a short break from the studio since I'm finished with all my projects, including that darn ceramic Indian of my mothers. Took it over to her yesterday and she almost cried she was so thrilled...had to retouch it since some of the paint came off while I was taking her out of the car. Wed. I'm going to spray the finish on it so it will be ready for her gardener next week. It's little things like that that give me joy, even though I might bitch about it, her expression after seeing it made it worthwhile.

Have a wonderful week and have some fun!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Okay Deb,

Get the big vat of pudding out and your bikini on; it's gonna be a hair-pulling, slip-sliding FIGHT to the finish.....
I'll put a bag of itching powder in Milo's transport unit if you don't behave. (it doesn't affect bugs, of course....)
Hahahahaha!!!!! :D

OMG, you got to see Michael Feinstein. I adore him. There used to be a restaurant underneath the Brooklyn Bridge, it was called the River Cafe. I believe he used to perform there. I went there once with a friend years ago.

Thanks for posting about the eiffel tower fabric. Tristan, why don't you try your hand at designing on Spoonflower. You would be a natural with your quilting background. You understand patterns. I dabble, but I haven't a clue what I am doing.

It is so cool, it only costs $5.00 for a swatch to approve your fabric for sale. Then you get a designer discount to order fabric, and if you offer your fabrics for sale, you get paid $1.00 per yard for each yard you sell. So, you build up Spoonflower dollars and can order material for your own crafts or design some more.

Thanks again, you are always so encouraging.


P.S. I was just typing in oboushmo on word verification and still thinking it would be such a cool idea for a book of these word verifications. I bet every blogger would have one on their desk!

I read your comment on the Cape Cod blog. Funny, I didn't know there was something like a lottery to get a visa for France!

And I dream about winning the green card lottery... well, there isn't any justice in the world :)

Greetings from Paris, Chani
