lucky week!

First, Today my son SKYLAR graduated from the New York Academy of Dramatic Art.
WAY TO GO SKY!
We are very very proud of him.   Sky spent 5 years in the US Marines and then returned from Iraq to pursue his true passion - acting.   He landed several speaking roles in TV and feature films in L.A., and then he ventured to New York to fine hone his craft.
He's a really incredible and unique singer, too.
Congratulations Sky - Now GO OUT AND BREAK A LEG, son.
He's such a cutie.
on another note......
I love contests..before the internet  "contesting" was my hobby...I even subscribed to a "contest" bulletin and i sent in zillions of sweepstakes entries a month......and i won lots of prizes too!   from childrens toys, a years supply of pepsi, clothes, an electric knife - even cash!
sooooo.  i love to enter internet contests and giveaways......i don't usually win, but when i do- i tend to do it in multiples!
this week I won:


This was from Crafters Cafe.  This is a book i really wanted...so I am stoked!
Then,  the beadcoop.com sent me this notice:

...and then today, this!

The following week we choose a random winner.
Last weeks winner is Connie. Congratulations you've won one of Lynn's pewter medallion medal charms .
Woohoo! I won a pewter medallion charm made by Lynn, from last weeks Studio Saturday Blog, where a new artists presents their studio and the new art they are working on.  Lynn has two etsy shops with great pewter, copper and resin art.
Studio Saturday is a part of Artbead Scene blog, and this blog hosts several contests...Jennifer at Jangles also has her own giveaway every friday.

Connie, I believe your Facebook account was hacked. I'm getting phishing scam emails from you and a person trying to chat with me. To fix it you need to go to the Security section of Facebook's Help Center.

Hope you are well and Congrats to both you and Skylar!

Hugs,
Sprite
