And the Winner is.....

YaY Susan!!! You can have the earrings in the video or my version of sage and gold. Just let me know :-)

I wrote the names on a piece of paper and put them in a hat. I should have known Susan was coming out of the hat. Everything has been coming full circle lately, or at least 3/4 of the way around. And this giveaway is no different. Back in 2000, my dear friend Paul encouraged me to put a few pieces of jewelry out there for sale and see what happens. So the seeds of One Kiss Creations were sewn.
Fast-forward to this past April. That is when I first visited Windrock Studio's blog during the 7000 Bracelets of Hope Blog Hop. I had only started blogging a couple weeks before that. When I clicked on Susan's Bracelet, I was blown away. It spoke to me in so many ways. Because good things come in little packages. Because small things matter. Because one woman's small may be another woman's big. Because it is lacy and delicate and warm and loving. Because the details are simple but necessary and beautiful. Because it just spoke to me. In the following weeks, I checked in to Windrock Studio's blog and explored Larry and Susan's detailed sculptures, fabric frames, mud huts (LOVE EM!) and leather work (want to wear each purse!). Take the time to look at them too. They are just so earthy and uplifting and evoke feelings of true home, which is really in our hearts and not a physical place. And Susan has a great love of capturing town. People, animals, plants, structures. Her photos are a wonderful slice of life~in all it's beauty and brightness.
So as I was enjoying Susan's blog and feeling my way around the blogosphere, I decided to have my first giveaway. Paul won! Legitimately! I swear!!! For this giveaway, I decided to have the drawing today, on Paul's Birthday. Susan won. Paul and Susan live a stone's throw from each other and 2000 miles from where I physically reside. See?! Circling Around!!!
