Thank you...

to everyone that commented on my OWOH giveaway, but especially for those who showed concern for my health.

I got my diagnosis on January 30th and have been processsing the fact that I do have Fibromyalgia. I did the routine blood work and x-rays to rule out anything else, but from what I know about the condition from friends who have it, it wasn't too much of a surprise. It is nice to know that I'm not as crazy as I was feeling. Now I can get the help I need and move on with my life and hopefully get back into creating my art on a somewhat more regular basis. The last 6+ months have been hard with the job change and the fibro flareups becoming more frequent and intense, but I am able to see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

Anyway, thank you all for making this year's event an amazing one for me. I never thought I would receive so many comments on my giveaway, especially since I hadn't even made my prize yet. One journal is completed, but I haven't been able to take pictures of it yet because my camera is on the fritz and I have yet to make a second one, so the 2nd and possibly third prizes will be something that I already made and most likely something that you've seen in my journal.

Thanks to all 400 of you wonderful people!!
