Congratulations to:

Jan Manley of
Sew and Sow Farm

You can see from Jan's blog that she's a talented quilter and photographer, drawing inspiration from all those precious animals on her farm in the North Georgia Mountains!

I hope you adore owls Jan, because you are the lucky of winner of the above collection of owl art from my Etsy Shops! 

I am so very grateful to each and every one of you that stopped by to visit, comment and/or join my blog, and most especially to Vicki from 2 Bags Full for hosting this wonderful event! This was a new and very special opportunity for me to make connections with so many kindred spirits in the blogging community. 

But I have a lot of catching up to do in the days ahead, because OF ALL THINGS! right after the party launched my computer crashed and I've had very limited access to the web for over 2 weeks! Nor could I make a February Desktop Calender since I also lost my PhotoShop program. But for the time being, I'm using an alternative program that, although adequate, in no way compares. 

I did, however, manage to create this yummy printable recipe card featuring my watercolor painting of mama bear with her first cup of tasty brew after a long winter's nap!

Just click the image and download to your computer. Print on cardstock using landscape setting.
A gift of this delicious creamer packaged in a mason jar along with the printed card is a fun way to let a friend know that she's a special ingredient in your life!


(And keep your fingers crossed that my new computer (an iMac this time!) arrives safe and sound on Monday (and in working order, unlike the two PCs I ordered recently!)
