Well, the response to the contest was great. I got the first 10 comments in just over a day, so YAAAAYYYY!!! In the first picture, you see my windowsill Goddess about to pick the winner's name from the first 10 comment-makers. She asked me to place them in her favorite seashell which I had to place on a cup to make it high Linkenough for her to reach. She was so excited to pick the name of our winner:


So, Sheri, I'll email you to get an address and send you your art goodies by the end of the week.

I've heard from a couple of you that you've placed a link to my blog on yours. I'm a little nervous, though, that people aren't getting entered into the contest for the SUPER-DELUXE art goodies they qualify for because they aren't letting me know they've placed me on their blogs. If you have linked to my blog on yours, please send me a quick email or add a comment like Mercedes did that let me know she linked to my blog. I'll add the links to yours very soon.

I think this contest was fun. I think I'll extend it:

New Chance To Win Art Goodies: I will draw another name from the next 10 comments to receive a prize.

Pre-P.S. I'm not trying to scream in the following text. I couldn't get it to revert back to the size font size in the beginning of the post. I've tried 3 times. I give up.The photos you see above are some of the vintage fabrics I'm about to list on Etsy. I have an unusually large collection of fabrics from the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's and on. I get weak in the knees when I see an old fabric or a fabulous contemporary one. I use fabrics in many ways (paper bag books, altered books, tags, bags, collages, dolls, decorating) and I feel sorry for beautiful vintage fabric that I leave behind lonely and forgotten at thrift stores or estate sales. I had a giant garage sale in August at my son's house in Portland and sold off some of the lesser fabrics. I've kept the best to sell. I'm starting with the smaller pieces and will move to yardage as I clear out. What you're seeing here are eclectic collections of various sized pieces. I've grouped together minimum widths of 12" and 13", which you see in pictures. I'm also doing squares and those are in the third fabric picture (these are 9" squares). Aren't they cool? You can surf over from my Etsy link later today because I'm headed over there to list them.

Have a fabulous day!!!
