And the winner is...........

Laura Haviland!! I have to tell you all she really went out of her way to help me in this endeavor. She contacted everyone she knew in her Yahoo groups, she sent e-mails on my behalf, she did a whole new post on her blog about my giveaway and she just really outdid herself trying to help me get more viewers for my blog. She happens to also be an incredibly supportive fellow artist of my work. She is also very talented herself, check out her artwork on her blog at:

Laura's name was mentioned the most times within the comments so she will be receiving the grand prize from me (hope you like it Laura). Laura I will get that package out into the mail to you hopefully by the end of this week.

I do also have an honorable mention as well. Gretchen from Gretchen is an extremely talented jewelry maker. She is one of those artist's who brings life back into old, vintage trinkets. Her work is breathtaking and it would be well worth your efforts to check out her blog. Gretchen I will be sending you a little something as well. However, since your not a paper artist I'm not sure if you'll get any use out of it, but hopefully I will have a few things in the package that will interest you.

Thank you again everyone. Just so you know my followers have increased and my counter jumped by over 200 hits since I started this experimental giveaway. So I definitely benefited from doing this.

  2. You're too sweet Shannon. I was glad to be of help to you, but I just don't have a lot of fellow artisians in my circle of friends. That is why blogging is so fun for me.
    I hope you continue to grow in your blogging endeavor.
    Thanks for you kind words and the link to my site. I appreciate your kindness.

  3. Shannon your readers are are increasing, great.
