My thanks to all of you who stopped by in the last two days to read the post about Valerie Garber, and my thanks to Val for being our special guest!
If you missed out, be sure to check out her interesting life and work with ceramics and the women in Namibia. More information can be found at these sites:
- her Etsy shop, ValsCeramicGarden,
- her newest shop on GlobeIn,
- her blog, "Work of our Hands,"
- her business Facebook account, "Work of our Hands."
Thanks to Val's generosity, we were able to have 2 sets of give-away gifts from her shop this time! Winners were picked from those who left messages on the last blog entry, then were assigned a number, and the winners were picked by a random number generator. And the winners are:
Gift Set #1: Flower & Leaf + Baby Elephant
WINNER: PAM from KLASSYJOOLZ
Gift Set #2: Orange Elephant + Blue Bird Pendant
WINNER: SHIRLEY MOORE
Thank you all again! Wishing you all a good week!
P.S. Yes, it's Sunday, but no outdoor nature photos today. Instead we have photos of nature in ceramic form! Flowers, a bird, and closeups of elephants--I don't get a chance for elephant shots every day in Kansas! ;-)
