Hastypearl's First Giveaway.....And The Winner Is!!!!
Well, I'm happy to announce here on my blog, that the winner of my first Hastypearl giveaway...is Jill!
An Etsy shop owner, and blog writer for Collected Mess!
It all started with my 100th blog posting.
I thought it would be a fun time, to take a moment and say, THANK YOU, to everyone that has dropped by to read, and leave encouraging words over the months.
After all, I see lots of blogs doing giveaways, and I had even recently won one, myself!
So, I thought about what I would enjoy receiving, and fresh on my mind, were some abstract...
I would even say...contemporary pieces,
that I had recently done.
Well, yes, they have fibers, from my special collections included...after all, I don't think that I can ever
So, I made my selection.
Put it in a frame that I use for staging and photographing.
Took my photos and Photoshopped them.
Wrote my blog posting and hit....SEND.
It NEVER occurred to me at any point in the process...until I hit ...SEND, that...
WHAT IF NO ONE COMMENTS ON MY BLOG, OR LIKES ON FACEBOOK, OR EMAILS ME THAT THEY WANTED TO BE ENTERED IN THE GIVEAWAY!
Well, I was wrong.
And you did! :)
I don't normally consider myself to be insecure, but suddenly,
I had a moment...you know that feeling,
when you wonder if,
"You will get picked to be on the team"!
I mentioned that realization to a wise man, and he congratulated me for taking the risk...
Nothing Ventured...Nothing Gained!
Anyway, so here was the stash that I chose from.
When I added the beautiful Victorian Mesh Trim,
Hmmm... I thought...Instant loom!
...so, I wove in some of my favorite hand dyed ribbon and some tiny golden thread.
I was pleased how it looked in my Entry Hall, as it waited to go to its new home!
I wrote down all of the names of the "sweethearts" that Congratulated/Encouraged/Liked me,
and asked Larry, to pick a number.
He hadn't seen the list, so he wasn't influenced in any way.
I Love how Things work out.
Jill, has been such a great helper with all things Technical.
If you EVER need someone, to hold your hand...and she can tell you that I've needed some hand holding...
SHE is the one to call!
So, thank you to ALL who have Given me the Thumbs Up, for all things Hastypearl.
It's REALLY meant So Much!
I hope that you will ALL hang with me for another 100 blog postings, as we see what kind of Hastiness,
the future holds! :)
