Well I have to say this has been some kind of fun...sorry I'm so late today publishing the names of the winners of my giveaway...HOWEVER, have I got another story for you!


Yesterday I received an email from SHERRY in the UK, informing me that I had won a gift from her...AND it turned out that it was something that I had truly wished to have...so doubleYAY! for me.  
In the meantime I had waited until later in the day to end my comments and put
the random generator to good use.
I pulled the number for LIV from Australia.
And as it turned out she was very enthusiastic about her hopes in winning my Janis poster,
so  I was very happy that someone who truly wished for something from me had won.
Then as I was looking for the next winner, and I hit on someone in England who wished for Mick Jagger...now I had not intended to give out two rock posters but since this person was also EXTREMELY enthusiastic about the chances of winning Mick,
I decided...you know what, I think Mick belongs in the UK!
Then I thought, hey wait a minute...something about this sounds familiar...
Yes you are correct.. this just happens to be the SAME Sherry that I had won a gift from!!
 So now I'm preparing to write to Liv to inform her of her winning when I received yet another email informing me that I was again a winner....this time from Australia.
You guessed it!!!  It was from LIV!!
THIS IS MIND BOGGLING to say the least!  What the heck are those odds?!
So I then went back to the generator in hopes that someone who wished for one of my children's illustrations would hit...and it did.
This time my Mathilda poster will be heading off to the
 Appalachian  Mountains of Virginia to reside with Sandra.
All of their wonderful blogs can be reached by hitting on their names under the photos above.
Oh and lucky me, I received another message today that I had won a doll from Lorraine at the dollblog.  So needless to say, it has been a very happy, successful OWOH for me this year.

Now for my next surprise.
I decided that since hundreds of people came by my blog...and I mean hundreds, yet only a couple hun left a comment...obviously my art only appeals to some.  And since those some left me such very lovely, encouraging, and personal comments, I have decided to send them a print of the poster of their choice. These are only the top five....representing the five wonderful years of OWOH.
Their names are:
Tammy of Bonsai Habits
Sheri of Shersheart2heart
Thespa of Vintiquities Workshop
Cecilia of Greenestmermaid
Heidi of Digital Misfits

Thank you all for a wonderful journey and for giving Ray and I such lovely well wishes...
until next year
Love, june

I almost forgot...one special little girl will receive a tee shirt of Mathilda, thx to her grandmother Donna 
from visiting beyond borders

Big hugs to you and many thanks for your sweetness.
Amazingly cool coincidence with your random draw. Life works like that sometimes.
Janis will live in a prominent place in my home and be cherished for years to come.

DEAR JUNE,
CONGRATULATIONS TO YOUR WINNERS..THEY ARE BLESSED.
I WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT I TYPE IN ALL CAPITALS BECAUSE I HAVE DECREASED VISION. I RECEIVED A RATHER (LOVELY) COMMENT FROM A PERSON WARNING ME THAT IT IS KNOWN IN BLOG LAND THAT PEOPLE WHO TYPE IN CAPITAL LETTERS ARE SHOUTING. I AM GOING BACK TO THE 100 BLOGS I HAVE VISITED TO EXPLAIN THIS. I DON'T KNOW WHO MAKES THESE RULES UP WITHOUT TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LIMITED VISION.
ONCE AGAIN YOUR ART WORK IS AWESOME.
HAVE A SUGAR SWEET DAY
SIMPLY DEBBIE
I AM SOOOOO VERY HAPPY YOU WON SOME THINGS YOU REALLY WANTED.

hi june,thanks for the comment on lisa's blog...i just replied to it...its appreciated i did get the point of it...i am posting my reply to show you...btw i love your artworks...wish i had have come and entered your giveaway...wowsers...
thanks june...yeah...i did get it indeed...its that finding an original way of doing something so very tricky...i found the same with scrapbooking too..i always thought i had an original idea and make a very different page, and then you'd eventually find something so similar to it out there already....its very very tricky indeed...my quest will not end i guess as I said in my last post here...but it did put out a frustration I feel...but at times it is very disheartening because you do what comes from your soul, only to find its been done before...does that make sense????
ok..thanks again...
