I am still in shock....bear with me....

Somehow I won beads.

This is from the Vintaj blog,

The Winner of our Field Journal Giveaway!

We asked you to tell us your story of a special collection you’ve started or a memorable trip where you collected special treasures to enter our Field Journal Giveaway. Once again our 70+ blog readers blew us away with their tales of travel and sentimental treasures! The winner of our Field Journal Giveaway, who will receive this stash of lovely handcrafted Polymer Clay nature pendants, charms & beads by our friend and Art Bead Partner Heather Powers of Humblebeads and Vintaj embellishments is…..Christina Hickman!! 
“My Boyfriend and I went on a camping/fishing trip to Yakima. On the first morning there, we woke up to a stunning red and grey sunrise, and as I got my camera out to take a picture, a raven flew overhead. Later, we found a bead shop in town. The owner was cutting some new cabs, he handed me a piece of Serape Jasper-it has brilliant red and grey bands and it looked like the sky that morning. I bought the cab on the spot, along with a beautiful Ellensburg Blue Agate, which the owner also cut. The agate I had made into a ring, which I wear daily, and the jasper is part of a bead embroidered necklace that also has a raven.”
Congratulations Christina and thank you to all of the talented writers who participated! Stay tuned for our next giveaway, details coming soon!
