Announcing the Winner of the CHA Blog Candy!!

I couldn't be happier to announce the winner of the special 2010 "The Art of the Stamp" Hero Arts Catalog.
This is a special one personally signed by each of the Hero Arts artists and Aaron Leventhal.

I truly haven't embraced all things techno as yet and was more than I can handle, so I went "old-school" and cut up 31 pieces of paper, writing the numbers on them and putting them in a box.  And then since I promised a random drawing,  I went to my exceedingly random hubster to draw the winning number. He had to multi-task as he was scrambling some eggs for breakfast. (Yes, he does the cooking.)
Here is the result of my, less than scientific but so much more fun, drawing:
Lucky number 12 is TanyaC. She linked to this absolutely gorgeous card on her blog Scattered Stamper.
You can also find her lovely and creative work on Flickr. Tanya, I will contact you via Flickr-mail for your address. Congratulations!
Thank you to all who participated, I appreciate you all. Stay tuned here as I am planning more fun give-aways and maybe a challenge or two along the way!

Thought for the Day: I would just like to express my gratitude to all of my faithful blog buddies. Your comments and encouraging words have really kept me going since losing my job in October.  I would like to ask a special favor of my praying friends. It has always been a dream of mine to return to my former employer, Independence Christian School. I worked there for 15 years and was never happier or more challenged and exhausted. I left that job in June of 2005 to have cervical spine disk replacement surgery. I always hoped to go back after the long months of recovery, but then the economy hit the school and they were forced to do some down-sizing and look for a new home. Well all this is just background for my prayer request...please pray for Independence Christian School as they are moving to a new facility; that they would have the opportunity to grow and maybe bring back their computer teacher (me) sometime in the near future.
In any event, I would love for this wonderful ministry to continue blessing families and educating children with Christian values. My two sons are certainly products of their education at ICS and they have been blessed by the loving examples of their excellent teachers.
Ephesians 3:20-21 ~ Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us; to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Blessings to you all,
