Before I announce the winners of my two blog prizes, I want to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who played along and posted a comment on the prize posts, but especially thank you to everyone who posted well wishes, to those who emailed me or posted to my Facebook Page with encouraging words! You will never know how much your words mean to me! I cannot contact each one of you (I have tried to email some of you, but for some reason Blogger is not showing emails), but please know I read every comment and post, and they all touched my heart!

My back injury has really made me rethink my daily life; I have had to prioritize and change things in order to heal and be healthy. I have stepped down from most of my design teams. A few I am still hanging on in some capacity or another...but I won't be designing the way I have in the past. I am going to enter a new season. 

For those who follow me, I am NOT abandoning the blog or my Facebook Fan Page. I will also see how I can add new options for following me. I have not looked into that since Google Reader bit the dust! However, the blog may sway a bit toward the personal side as I won't have as many project or tutorials to share. The things I do share may be different from what you are used to seeing, or perhaps I will do more of things I did BEFORE design team-ing took over my life. {grin} I plan to be here, sharing....something. 

At any rate - thank you for following me, reading what I have to say, and supporting my crafty habit over the years! I appreciate you - each and every one of you!

Now....on to the WINNERS!
