Ten Days of Giveaways: Winners!

 I am very glad to be home from Bead & Button.  It was a very hard show this time.  Many things went wrong at the show and the drive back was very scary.  I hit a deer and likely totalled my dad's car, but we are ok.  I am slowly trying to get back on schedule, but it will take a while.  I have some orders and obligations, but not too much to do that is urgent for a while, so I am going to take it easy for a bit.

I promised to select the winners of the Ten Days of Giveaways today, so I will do that here. Thank you all for your comments!  I got over 400 comments all together, which is awesome!  If I list your name as one of the winners, please email me at earthenwood at gmail dot com with your address within the next week to receive your prize:

  7. Sorry to hear you had a hard time at the show and then ended it all with the "deer" incident. At least you're back home safe now and can sit back and relax and recoup for a little while. Hope everything turns out okay in the long run.

  9. I am so sorry that the show was hard and things were wrong - that doesn't make things fun. I am glad that you weren't hurt in the accident - that is the important thing but am sorry about the car. I've hit a deer before and it horrid! It was so much fun participating in the give away - very generous of you. Take it easy for a few days.

    Hugs and happy beading...

  11. Congrats to all the winners! Melanie...sorry that the show was hard and then to finish it off with a deer accident. Glad that you are safe. I enjoyed talking with you at the show (i purchased several of the spotty pendants among other things)!

  12. a very very generous giveaway melanie... congrats to all of the winners!

  13. congrats to all the winners! And the heart above in this post is fabulous!

  14. Get plenty of rest, and keep a heating pad handy. It was my best friend for a week after my car accident years ago. But very glad to hear everyone was safe - cars can be replaced, people, not so much.

    Thank you kindly, Melanie - really made my day to be picked.

  15. So sorry that deer got in your way. Maybe he was sent to slow you down- sounds like you know how to take care of yourself. I wish you a speedy recovery and some relaxing days of rest.
    Thanks so much for your generous give-away- this is the first time I have won something on any blog!! I am thrilled.

  16. This little heart is super cute! :)

    First I want to thank you for this giveaway and selecting my name as one of the winners. I am so very excited!

    Second, I'm so sorry about your Bead and Button experience and ended a hard trip with a worse drive. We experience many deer accidents in MI and they are always traumatic. I'm glad your safe and can get some much need R&R.

    Thanks so much,
