And The Oscar Goes To.....

Oh wait, it's not the Oscars, it's the first ever giveaway for Alabaster Rose Designs.

And the winner is....

"I'm closing my eyes!"

Kristin from Faded Prairie.
Congratulations Kristin!!!

 I wanted so much to give everyone something. Everyone has been so sweet and supportive of my Jewelry designs and both of my blogs since I first began. Everyone who had joined my blog from the very beginning was entered in the giveaway drawing. Thank you for all of your lovely comments and for all of the inspiration that you all give to me each and everyday. This blogging community is amazing and I have never known such lovely supporting women in all of my life.

 Don't worry, if you didn't win today, I will be hosting another giveaway soon. 
Have a wonderful Oscar day and a fabulous week!!

*(The original winner of the giveaway graciously declined the offer because she wanted someone else to enjoy the necklace. In her line of work she is unable to wear jewelry, so she wanted to give someone else a chance who would enjoy and use the piece more often.
So another name was chosen for the giveaway. Thank you to the original winner for your  thoughtfulness. )


  1. Congratulations Kristin...You lucky girl you! What a wonderful 'give away' Melinda, I look foward to your next one...until then I'll just have fun 'coming over' to visit you. That was awfully nice of the original winner to give up her prize and let someone else enjoy it...such wonderful people here in Blogland. Enjoy the Oscars tonight....Maura

  2. I forgot to comment on your lovely little helpers Melinda...they're SO CUTE!!! I remember when mine were that little...that was a long time ago LOL...ouch that makes me feel old!....not really...

  3. Congratulations to Kristin! This was a fabulous give away Melinda! Your creations are just beautiful. Have a great week! Laura :)

  4. That is too bad that the original winner was unable to best appreciate your necklace, but how gracious of her to have you select a new winner. So I am happy for Kristen, but oh darn, I had had my fingers crossed and double crossed. Oh well, maybe your next give away. Speaking of give aways, I will be planning one very soon, when I reach 100 followers. By the way, your little helpers are adorable.
