Well it rained here most of the weekend which was great for my mums, but not so great for getting any yard work done! It now looks like the weather is going to clear up and the temperature is going to drop this week. I think the knitters and crocheters are starting to gear up for this fall and winter as button sales are picking up in my etsy shop If you knit or crochet please stop by as my shop is overflowing with beautiful handcrafted tree branch buttons. If you happen to read this blog post and do buy some buttons please include a note in the checkout letting me know this. I would greatly appreciate it.

Wooden Treasures Winners Circle

On Tuesday we drew the names of the three winners of my latest giveaway promotion. I sent them each an email today (Wednesday) letting them know of their good fortune. I asked for their permission to post their names here on my blog page and hopefully they will agree.

I have already heard back from the Grand Prize Winner who is from California. Her name is Maria Policano from Southern California. She said, and I quote "I cannot believe I won these amazing buttons. I will have to get busy making things to use them on. Thank you so so much for this great treat. You have made my day".

Second Prize was awarded to Angela De Ciccio of Canada. I say this really made her day as she had forgotten all about the drawing. She made her purchase very close to the beginning of the contest back in early August.

Third Prize was awarded to Wendy Ritchy from DeLand, Florida. Wendy had this to say when she found out she had won. "Whooohooo!! I haven't ever won anything before :c) guess I need to stop trying & it will just happen like this ~ hehe ~ thanks so much! I actually didn't even see anything about the giveaway when I bought the buttons (which I love ~ thanks!) "

So there you have it. All of the winners from my most current promotion. I would love to have you send me some photos of items you've created using my buttons. I will post them here along with a link to your etsy shop if you have one.

All I can say is...Ya'll need to start checking my shop announcements. I have a LOT of promotional giveaways and drawings for free goodies. It's all about giving something back to those who support my shop. Check it out at

My next promotion, although not a huge one, will start on Monday Sepetember 14th. The winner of this promotion will win a $40.00 shopping spree in my Etsy Shop. There will only be 30 entries in this "contest" so your chances of winning are very good even if you only buy one item. Watch my etsy shop front page for details.
