The WInner of my Bracelet Giveaway!!!!

Good Morning Campers! That is the first thing we always said when on vacation. It was a fun way to wake up the kids. Well in a couple hours we load up the cars with 3 grandchildren and my Mom and head out to a week on the Oregon Coast, to visit the other two grandchildren and our son and daughter in law and her Mom and Grandma.

But first, as promised the winner of my first giveaway of the beautiful bracelet featuring beads from Gaea, Mermaid Glass and Miss Fickle Media. This name has been chose through random.org and I counted three times to make sure it was the correct name.  Let the drumsroll.......................................   TA DA!!!!!!   Congratulations .............................Gertie Stallenberg. 

Thank you so much to everyone for the lovely birthday and Bead Trends wishes and comments. Thank you to all of the new followers on my Blog. I am excited to spread the word about my business and my designs. This has been a great month for me. Very special as it was my big 60 birthday and now that I am past that and stop counting I believe,  this is going to be a fantastic year!

Please stay in touch and I will do my best to design the prettiest pieces ever to come out of my studio. I have a huge stash of art beads from so many new friends in this industry. Amanda of Seashore Glass, Gaea of Gaea, Nan of Spirited Earth, Raida of Havana Beads, Erin from Tesori Trovati, Lisa of Clayworks, Marie of More Skye Jewels, Martha of Menagerie Studio and bunches more.  I have some of the most amazing glass and stone from my fav bead shop "Beads on Main" here in Vacaville. Monika, Jess and Dave have all helped get this far and I so appreciate it. I have amazing stone from my continued collections and so much more cool stuff to design with.

 My dear friend Amanda Austin deserves a special thank you for all her help this past 6 months. I am greatful.

Gertie please send me your address so that I might send this bracelet off to you.
