And the winner is............

I had the number generator pick a number this morning and it came up with the number 29.  I have already emailed Natasha to inform her of winning and as soon as I hear from her, the winnings will be in the mail.  I want to congratulate Natasha on entering and winning and thank all my followers who took the time to enter.  My next giveaway will be for Valentines day so keep watch.
I have had several comments about Trina's ornament and how I put the music box inside.  Well here's how I did it.  I buy the little round music box buttons at Hobby Lobby.  You can also get them online and you are limited to what tunes you get to choose from.  I then take the mat board that I use for the front and back of the ornie and cut a round hole in the center of each.  These music boxes aren't very thick so if you include the thicknesses of the two mat boards, the two pieces of batting and the two pieces of fabric, the music box is not at all noticable.  They are only about a 1/4 inch thick.  So after I have attached the batting and the fabrics for the front and back and I'm ready to stitch the ornament together, I insert the music box between them and there ya go.  A musical ornament and is one of a kind.  If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Blessings as always,
Barbara

Was also thinkin about possibly re-purposing those music buttons inside greeting cards. Will look in Dollar Store to see if they have those cards...
