I won!!!

Natalea Kandefer of Kandeland had a Halloween giveaway last week. The winner was to receive this darling Halloween pendant. I woke up this morning, stumbled to my computer and found out that I won!

How cute is that!

Nat is someone I have followed since I first found out about blogs. She has a great blog and is a warm and funny woman. Nat is also one of the "Niagara Crafting Sisters" (I hope I have that right), a group of women who all make some creative and fabulous things and have incredible get-togethers, with lots of caring touches. They are also one of the nicest bunch of women and have been kind and supportive of my blogging and creating. (I know I am speaking in superlatives but these women are really something). They are some of the people who make this blogging world so rewarding. 

Speaking of give-aways, there is a special and different one coming up very soon! Robin Thomas (A Nest with A View) and I decided to create a "joint project" and have each created a part of something that we hope you will really enjoy. Robin is one of my very favorite people in Blogland. I met Robin and her sidekick, Jem, at Kaari Meng's class at Silver Bella last year. They were so funny that I almost...well...wet my pants. Robin would say that, why not me?! She and I have gotten to know each other much better over the last year and I consider her a very special friend. I am really looking forward to seeing Robin again in a week and a half! 

Watch for the announcement of our give-away within the next few days!

Correction...Silver Bella is in two and a half weeks! Sorry!


  1. I can't wait to see what you two are planning together, I don't even know!! I can't wait to see you, it's okay if the feeling isn't reciprocated.

  2. Whatever you two have created together is going to be fabulous...How could it not? Two of the kindest, most talented women in the blogging world...

  3. Suz, congrats on winning Natalia's pendant! It's adorable!

  4. Congratulations on the pendant. Thank you so much for kind and generous words.

    Also, a week and a half? Yikes, that is pretty quick. I cannot wait to make you wet your pants!

  5. Suz, you are one lucky duck! To have won this cute pendant and to have such creative friends! I live a couple of hours from Omaha and went to the Silver Bella vendor fair last year. Sure would love to take the classes but I just don't think I have that kind of high-class talent! Will be thinking of you there!

  6. so deserve it!

    You are always such a sweetie to come by and visit me and leave such sweet comments.

    I did finish my Macaroons today...and it was sooooo much easier than I thought.

    Hugs for a great new week. xoxo
