Un-Giveaway and Random Thoughts

Hey, friends!  First of all, I want to thank you for your support of One Artsy Mama’s first ever un-giveway for the cure.  I need to give a few shoutouts to the following aMAzing ladies:
First, thanks to those who contributed their fabulous items and hosted auctions:
Nicole at Three’s{4}Me
Erin at Momma St.J Says
Kim at Craftaphile
Hannah at Rubies and Pearls
Amanda at Scrap Project 365
Andie Jaye at Crayon Freckles
Suzanne at WhyCuzICan
You all inspire me and I am proud to “know” you.
Second, thanks to all the bidders:
April, Carmella, Mary, Kadie, Ellen, Rachel, MamaBear07, Angie, Sheri, Amanda Anne, Andie, Mitralee, and West_Starlight
We couldn’t have done it without you!
High bidders will be contacted by the blogger whose items they won.
Thanks to you, together we raised $250 to help find a cure!
I am so thankful and so humbled to be a part of something like this where we come together to use the gifts we’ve been given and our concern for others to make a difference in this world.  Thank you again.

I also promised on Facebook that I’d randomly choose one bidder to receive this bonus prize, a digital fall card.  The winner was Mitralee.  Mitralee, please email me the photo you’d like me to use as well as the text you want on the card at dancers4life{at}gmail{dot}com!

Now that the un-giveaway is over {I know, you’re thinking “Whew, now she’ll stop tweeting and Facebooking about it!”}, it’s time to look ahead to a few more exciting things coming up here at One Artsy Mama for the rest of the month.  First, do you like the new background?  It was time for an update, but I didn’t want to lose the color scheme and the overall feel.  Whaddya think?  And, we have these fun things coming up:
Wednesday 10-26: Kayla from Sweet Anne Designs and I are swapping blogs for the day!  She’ll be showing you how to make an adorable notepad with some free printables, and I’ll be over at Sweet Anne showing you how to make a glittery Christmas ornament out of sheet music! {Don’t hate me because I’m a Christmas-a-haulic!}
Thursday 10-27: Melanie from Bear Rabbit Bear is featuring my Etsy shop and hosting a blog button giveaway from yours truly.
I’ll also be sharing features from the CSH link party here that day.
Friday 10-28: Time for a new Fall Challenge!  Hmmm…can anyone possibly guess what the theme might be?  Golly, I don’t know…
One Artsy Mama
Plus, I’m less than ten followers away from the big 500!
Of course I’ll need to celebrate, but how?  Ideas?

    Thanks so much for hosting this Amy- it was really great to get to know the folks here and help in some small way!

    Oh, and I’m working on a button today, I’ll have it for you by this evening. Just a simple one, it’s the first one I’ll be designing (gulp)
