A Winner! ...or two
Well once again I have picked a winner and the winner is Lorna from Artymess.
We're both pretty sure this random number generator is rigged because it's the third or fourth time she's won a giveaway here.
I decided to pick another in addition to assuage our collective guilt for her winning so often so my arctic sister/neighbor Kim Henkel of Letting in the Light is the winner of another set of clips.
My husband could practically drop them off at her house as he's driving south next week.
She's a mere 500 miles away but lives off of the same highway as us in another country.
I was also a winner on my very special birthday.
I got this handmade pendant from my new Finnish friend Heidi that was taking metal-smithing at the University of Alaska as an exchange student.
My friend Heather of Mountain Heather hats found this treasure trove of old nails in the Adirondack on her recent trip. My friends really know what I like!
You should check out her winter hats if you're in the market for a new warm hat this winter.
One of our friends was on a trip to France and spotted and recognized one of her hats on someone there so they're becoming international.
My other Finnish friend Reija put in an order with her mother back in Finland and I got a couple of pairs of toasty handmade socks.
Lucky me as it was below zero this morning!
I've been buttoning up... quite literally last minute projects before I fly south next week.
These are a design I came up with a few years back with antique buttons and silver. I made up a hefty batch of these.
Now it's time for emptying the fridge, packing up non freeze-ables from the studio and the house, figuring out which tools need to make the trip with me plus getting ready for one last show in Fairbanks.
Since it's a two day show I'm going to try out featuring my jewelry and lampwork one day and altered art the next since I don't have room anymore for all of my creations on an 8 foot table anymore!
These will be up in my Etsy shop after the middle of November. Currently it's on vacation stop while I make the move south.
