The One WORLD ONE HEART BLOGGING FESTIVAL is officially over and I have chosen my winners.It has been an astonishing three weeks with nearly 1100 blogs to visit- over 200 bloggers stopped by to see my little old blog - totally amazing. Kudos go to Lisa Swifka, the organizer of One World One Heart.
Today is Family Day here in Alberta so I had the day off from school. At 12 noon I closed off my entries - We printed the list of names and I cut them apart with my rotary cutter(I had a dull blade that proved useful- it made me feel like I had included some quilting activities VBG).
I started out by putting all the folded entries in this lovely purple purse. It is a handknit purse that has been felted _ I bought it at a silent auction recently.
By the time I was done the purse was pretty full, so my son suggested that we put the entries in a larger bag. We moved them all to this gorgeous Laurel Burch bag I was recently given:
My son, Kevin shook them and stirred them all around and then drew the following names:
My gold medal winner is Arlette from Costa Rica.
My silver medal winner is Sara of New Hampshire.
MY bronze medal winner is Brigit of Germany.
And because there were so many entrants, I drew a fourth name Cherry of Georgia I will be sending her the last bracelet.
Congratulations to all the winners!!
I wish I could have sent you all a bracelet-I enjoyed all your comments. When you get a chance, do come and visit my blog again.
I hope others were able to visit the many blogs around the globe- there are many wonderful artists sharing their love of expressing themselves in some unique and creative ways.
I am off to trim some quilt blocks.
I will leave you with this funny photo of me and my lap dog Dusty( Can you see her sitting under my laptop)
