Yay! It is so exciting to win something in my first ever challenge!

Even though it was a random draw, it is still exciting;-)

I am thrilled to have one. Thank you so much!

I had such great intentions of entering this contest, but just couldn't design a piece to save myself!  I couldn't have begun to compete with any of these entries--they are fabulous!  Congrats to all who won and all who entered!  Hats off to each of you!

No worries D! :-)  Kim, just click on the wording under your pic and you should be able to delete it. If not, don't worry about it. :-)

Oops  Thanks Marla ....what I actually meant to write/type was Component OR Jewellery... but I think you answered my question even though I can't type!

& Kim you should have a little x infront of your name if you click on it I think it lets you remove your entry....

Comment by Kim Houston Booth on November 29, 2012 at 11:08pm

How do I delete my entry? Apparently THIS person got in too big of a hurry and didn't real all of the directions. LOL. My piece doesn't qualify for the challenge.

Comment by Marla James on November 29, 2012 at 7:05pm

D, Yes a Pendant IS a Component of Jewelry. :-)   

Comment by D Lynne Bowland on November 28, 2012 at 3:38pm

Will photograph my piece tomorrow and get it up... not sure if a pendant is a component of jewellery?

I changed my links because they did not link to my blog post. Now they do! Thanks Gale White for bringing this to my attention!

Comment by Gale White on November 26, 2012 at 10:18am

Just a note, folks.  Some of the above links aren't working, so check your own piece after you post it if you'd like us to see it!

Bloggin about Berries! I could not stop making berries, it was so much fun! It reminded me of my Grandma so much. She made handmade things, we picked berries at her house and made many black berry pies! I loved this so much, thanks! :)

I'm in again. Hopefully my brain works and can link this time.:-)

Can't pass on this one. I'm in too.

Comment by Jean A. Wells on November 10, 2012 at 7:41pm

Is that one entry per category or one entry - must choose whether component or jewelry?
