We have a winner!

Let me start by thanking you all sincerely for your comments, enthusiasm and participation in my giveaway post.  I’d be creating all the same if not a single soul were watching…but I think it’s better by far to let more voices in on the process.  Your comments have sparked many new directions with this one little bead. Your kind compliments, fed the muse’s delicate ego.

Having a giveaway was a way to set myself an end date of when I would get these babies in my shop and, hopefully soon, out into the world (plus it’s a lot of fun!)  I’m happy to announce that as of today my shop has a new section: Polymer Roundabout Beads.  Here’s the starting line up! Thanks to all your ideas, many more iterations will follow.

I’m not terribly surprised that wordsmith Erin Prais-Hintz was the one to suggest “roundabout”.  I so enjoyed reading all the wonderfully creative names you all offered up, but kept returning to this idea of a roundabout.  Picturing it from above with many lanes, it goes off in many directions and at any time could be filled with a wide variety of colourful cars and trucks (or I suppose, in some parts of the world, scooters, bicycles and livestock). Oh yes, what bounty of ideas could spring from such a name.  I must think of creative way to thank Erin for this thought.

Today though, this thank you gift needs a new home…

The winner is lucky number 33! That’s Sherri Stokey, who said:

“Love the beads - I'd love to try these in a macrame necklace!”
Oh I so hope she does! Thanks so much everyone and Sherri I’ll drop you a line for your mailing address.
