CONGRATULATIONS OWOH WINNERS!!

Thank you, everyone, for such a wonderful ride on the One World One Heart magic carpet! This was my very first time participating w/ OWOH, I'm so glad that I did it!

First of all... a HUGE THANK YOU to Lisa Swifka of A Whimsical Bohemian for putting together such an amazing event!

It was so wonderful to not only have so many people visit my blog to enter my giveaway... but I really enjoyed that some of you took the time to see what I do & learn about who I am...I thank you for that! I got the chance to visit the blogs of so many talented people! I still have many to visit, so glad that Lisa will be keeping the list of participants up on her OWOH website.

If you recall... I originally started out giving away just one art-glass heart pendant to an active blogger & one to a non-blogger... but with so many responses (503 total!), I decided to add an additional item for every 100 active bloggers. I ended up w/ 454 blogger entries (& 49 non-bloggers), so I'm giving away a total of 4 items!!

Because I've got 2 categories of winners, my drawing was done by hand instead of w/ a random number generator. I printed off all of the comments, cut them up & dividing into bloggers & non-bloggers & drew them one @ a time. I put the 2 hearts in individual boxes, scrambled them so I wouldn't know which was which & then drew names for each box, then picked one of the other 3 items one @ a time & drew a name for each.

So... here we go... are you ready?

The winner of the active blogger prize is:
pippirose of Pippi Stitches


The winner of the non-blogger prize is:
Nikki 
(2nd drawing, first winner didn't respond after 3+ days, lucky Nikki!)


The winners of the additional active bloggers' drawings are...
...one of my glass & copper acorns.

...an organic-ish art-glass bead. I will be happy to make this into a pendant if Nicole wishes it to be so.

...a deep red & raku art-glass lentil bead. I will be happy to make this into a pendant if the lady wishes it to be so.

I will be contacting my winners tonight via eMail or their blogs. CONGRATULATIONS all!!!

(winners have 3 days to get back to me w/ their mailing address. If I don't hear back by Thursday evening, I'll draw another name)

Thanks for playing, everyone! See you next time!
