A Winner!

Cathryn from Chili Cats is the Winner of January's Give-Away.  She get to recieve this fun Cat Brooch.
Congrats Cathryn, and send me your mailing info so I can get this in the post to you.
I do a monthly Give-Away and it's easy to win. Pop over any time this month  - Leave a comment and follow my blog for a chance to win this Flying Heart Brooch with German glass center.

I've been beading some new brooches and will take some pictures in the next few days to show you what's new in my studio. I do have to admit though, that I haven't been doing as much as I should since I am on my seasonal obsession with the family tree again. I have traced one branch of my family tree back to the year 980! That's 32 generations. I have also found a wonderful new cousin in Georgia. I started working on my family tree many years ago (before internet!) to find out more about my Mother's Swiss family. Since then I have traced family to Russia, Germany, England and Scotland.What a melting pot I am! I realized why I love England so much. Some of my avorite places I visited were homes of my ancestors. And Ididn't even know at the time I traveled there.


  1. Wow! I emailed you! I did not hope to win but loved the opportunity! I don't know if you know how appropriate this is! LOL Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  2. I'm from a Heinz 57 mix myself--my family has a story how one of the men got off the boat and fell in love with a Scottish lass and they couldn't speak each other's language! Amazing isn't it?

  3. Congrats to Cathryn :)
    and pretty cool tracking your family so far back too
    hugs Nikki

  4. Wow, that red is vivid! Red is my favorite color and now that my hair is grey I look better in it!

    Have a great February!
