Color Me Thankful and Happy!

     If you've been reading this blog for a while, you probably recognize this necklace. {Although it would be understandable if you didn't, considering my picture-taking ability, or lack there of! LOL} Back on August 24th Karen Clark, of the blog Creative And Faithful, made me the winner of her Giveaway! I blogged about it HERE.
     Well, she sent out that beautiful necklace right away. And I waited, and waited,.....and waited some more, and it never came! Over the course of that time she would ask me: "Did you get it yet?!!" I felt bad that I had to keep telling her no! So, about 12 days ago she direct messaged me on Twitter and said: "I'm sending you a new one." I really felt bad, because now she was going to be out 2 necklaces, 2 shipping costs, and everything!!! Not to mention the labor and attention to detail that this necklace obviously took!!
      But yesterday in the mail I got this cute artwork card..
    ...which I loved right off the bat, because of the color! And when I opened it, there was this sweet note...
      Well Karen, the answer is....OH YEAH!!!!
     I almost couldn't believe how beautiful it was. And to think...someone else has the other one, or it's sitting in a warehouse, or a mailman's bag somewhere! *sigh*...So, my showing it off to you today is not about me saying: "Na na na na na! Look what I got and you didn't!!" It's about showing you what great work she does, what a dedicated artisan she obviously is, and how much she cares about her potential...I said POTENTIAL, because I won this FREE!!...customers.
    So, please go tweet with CrystalVelvetUk, Karen, on Twitter and tell her what you think of this necklace or visit her website, and get you one of your own...or some beads to make one!! She even has a bridal gallery!!!
    Now, you'd think that would be enough excitement for me for one day...and it would have been!...but I got an email too, that said my Wuglyees Etsy shop had been mentioned on a blog, niecynotes! This is what she says on her blog:
"Well, after some brainstorming, I thought about making a new weekly series on the blog called Notice. Notice is all about showing off some of my favorite Etsy shops. I have not tried any of the products from these shops, but I admire them a bunch and think they should have some recognition :D..."
    And who is her first featured shop?! Me, my Wuglyees shop!! She even shared some photos of some of my items!! I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised and happy!! I was beginning to think that the only way my little etsy shop was going to get REALLY noticed, except by me jumping up and down all the time, was if I got rid of it!! {Someone would say: "Wasn't there a crochet shop here one time?" LOL}
   So I want to say thank you to Denise from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to give Wuglyees a little show-off! :-)
     Also, giving you a heads up, there are a couple of blogs that I follow that are having some great Giveaways. For one you can go HERE. It's SnowFlakeDreams1's blog. She's having a One Year Etsy Anniversary Giveaway with lots of ways to enter, and it's more than one gift!
   And for another, bouffe e bambini's blog is featuring a Giveaway for a Clutch! The winner will get to choose which one they want. I like this one.
     Pretty, isn't it?! I, of course, love the flower!!.....Bare with me, I'm almost done talking today! ^_^ I just want to introduce you to another AWM team member, Kama Sutra Fiber Arts.
    Her KamaSuutra Etsy shop has the most beautiful yarns! Of course I love the ones with green in them. No surprise, right?! :-) This is DayLily SuperSport.
    And this is Leaf Green SuperSock Optical Tweed.
     No! The Pistachio green didn't take away my love of green. I'm loving hers now!! ^_^ Who knows, maybe so more green...SOMETHING...is in my future!!
    Okay, poem and then I'm done for today. I know, I know, "Bout Time!!" ^_^ Because of all of the color on my blog today, I thought I'd repeat this poem.

Color Is

Auburn is the setting sun.
Blue is a mood.
Black is the night sky.
Brown is dog food.

Green is the grass.
Yellow is the sun.
Gray is the stormy sky.
Purple is just fun.

Pink is carnations.
Plum is a fruit.
Tan is for shoes.
Beige is just cute.

Gold is a metal.
White is plain, mild.
Red is a fire.
Orange is hog wild!


  1. Congratulations on such a beautiful win!!! It was so sweet of Karen to make a 2nd one. I wonder what happended to the original!!!!

  2. Miss Val, Thank you! It's gorgeous, isn't it?!! Now I just have to find some place nice to wear it to. Maybe on one of my "Virtual" Date Nights with the hubby to Hawaii or somewhere!! ^_^ ... And Yes, I wonder what happened to the original necklace too!! Maybe one day it will just show up and I'll be able to send it back to her. That happened with a necklace I sent to a customer a while back. 3 months after I had replaced it, it just showed up in the mail!!!
