Thank You ...and the Winner Is...

My gift for the past 4 years to my blog readers has been to bring some of my favorite crafters to my blog to share their family traditions and some craftiness to you.  I am excited that this year's blog event for the 12 Days of Home for the Holidays is a great success!  I want to thank some folks before announcing the no particular order.

My 12 guests for sharing their family, their talent, and at times their deepest struggles.  Working with these talented ladies was a breeze.  I wish I could express in adequate words how much I thank all of you. I encourage you to follow their blog or check out their design team work.  These crafters are a great source of inspiration.

Thank you to our sponsors for believing in this blog event enough to give of your product and time.  Their blogs and their Facebook page is often filled with fun giveaways.  I hope you follow them and enjoy their products as you craft.

Thank you Tammy Tutterow, former guest of 12 Days  of  Home for the Holidays, for working with Sizzix.  Tammy is one talented, gifted, and kind crafter.  I follow her blog on a regular bases...I always keep her link up on the right side of my blog.  

Thank you Jennifer Gallacher and Echo Park Paper for their giveaway.  As well as Lisa Swift and Little Yellow Bicycle for their giveaway.  Way to go the extra mile!

Tabitha Safdi, of Tabitha Safdi Photography and my wonderful daughter, for creating the graphics for 12 Days of Home for the Holidays and taking the photos of the May Arts Ribbon giveaway.  

To my unwitting social media experts:  Thank you Sudie Alexander for jumping in as a friend...without the first request...and letting the world know what was happening here and running trouble shooting issues with me.  Connie Mercer who helped get the word out via Facebook and her own blog.  Rachel Caldwell, play date friend, for jumping on the board each day on Facebook.  Lisa Swift, Cheryl Waters, Pam Bray, and all the guest for promoting not only their blog post, but supporting everyone's post.  

To each of the (over) 7,000 viewers of D's Paper Studio during the 12 Days of Home for the Holidays I say thank you and hope you have a wonderful Holiday full of family traditions.  

I know I will get up in the middle of the night and remember someone I forgot to say thank you too...if I do just know "Thank You."
