Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I hope that you all rang in the new year the way that you wanted to. For me it was chillin' on the couch with Ana & Sean watching a movie. So mellow we were almost comatose... seriously.

I'm excited to get to finally share with you guys the results of the Fabulous Mystery Giveaway! I wanted to make sure all the winners received their gifts before I posted about them. I'm no spoiler, I love a surprise!

My winners, just like snowflakes are each beautiful and unique! Taking my cue from mother nature I stitched up a trio of goodies for them (hopefully also beautiful & unique, teehee!). I used the new Snowflake pattern by Carina, I purchased it from her Etsy shop, Polka & Bloom. Carina is one of my favorite embroideresses, I love all the bright, vivid colors she chooses for her embroideries. I've been a big fan of hers since seeing her work in the Flickr Embroidery Pool.

I sent these snowflakes far and wide into the world. From the bright lights of Hollywood, California to the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, to the distant hills and valleys of Zoran, Israel. It tickles me pink that little bits of me are now with my friends, new and old so very far from my little northern California town.

Here is the trio all together...

For Kamisha in North Carolina...

The grand prize... a new mug, some StoryTime Cocoa and some sweet sticks.

For Keren, in Israel...

For Melissa, my dear friend in Hollywoooood...

 Sweet Sticks for these sweeties, too!

What's a Sweet Stick?
Those little yummies over there, from Trader Joes. I'm addicted.

Thanks again for playing along everyone, and welcome to my new friends, too!! I see you followin' over there, and I've already stalked visited your blogs too!

I loved having this little giveaway, I'll have to think of some new reasons to have another one in this new year!

Cheers everyone!
