First, I would like to give a huge thanks to all who entered the FARRAGOZ giveaway.  There were OVER 600 ENTRIES.

I sincerely appreciate your readership, and, support. I honestly wish I could give you all the prize.

However, I do have another deal for you at the end of this post, so hang in there.

But, first, let get to the winner.

Congratulations,  Mildred.  An email is on the way.

NOW, on to the SPECIAL DISCOUNT.  FARRAGOZ has, once again, given me the go ahead to extend a fabulous discount offer to my readers.

For the next 10 days, the full cost of the course will be reduced to a one time payment of $99 for the 12 month course. The current discounted one time payment is $150. That's an additional $51 savings for you.  There are also two additional discounted easy payment options.

Click HEREand you will be taken to the VILLABARNES SPECIAL DISCOUNT page, for all the details.

Thanks again, everyone.

This is not a paid post.  FARRAGOZ has enrolled me in their course to give an honest review.  All opinions are my own.  My decision to become a FARRAGOZ affiliate, and extend this discounted offer, was based on my impression of the course.

Festive Metal

I'm giving my metal "medals" a festive twist.

A little while ago, I showed you the medals I've been making from salvaged metal.

Since then, I've sold quite a few.  With Christmas coming up quickly, and, multiple shows next month, I decided to add a little sparkle.

This one has a hanger on the back.

I bent this one,


added a ribbon for hanging.

I have more to make, and, I'll be listing a few in my Etsy shop.

Thanks for all the entries in the Farragoz giveaway.   I'll announce the winner soon.
