I won, I won!

Two things, actually...one was some fabulous items from Magpie Gemstones' Free Beads for Blog Buddies promotion. I've never won anything like this before, so it was a complete thrill. Here are my goodies:

Silver and turquoise focal. This guy is humongous at 2.5" x 3.75".

16" strand of yummy multicolored 3mm x 5mm rondelles

Some sturdy 10mm split rings
Now I'm a bit embarrassed to say I won these back in December, and haven't blogged about them yet because they haven't spoken to me yet about what they want to be, but it's certainly high time to introduce them to everyone. :)  They are whispering now, so I hope to play with them a bit and see what comes forth.  I'll be sure to post what I come up with!

And I even have a second win to announce. I have won a One Year Doctorate Membership at the Jewelry Making Professor's website. This is where I learned how to do the puffy heart, which hooked me onto videos for learning techniques. I very much look forward to utilizing that free subscription! Thank you JMP!
