We have reached our first 100 Likers on Facebook and drawn our prizewinner - congratulations to Katherine Wright! A gorgeous gift pack containing some Swarovski crystal beads, art glass beads, foil glass hearts, silver spacers, pearls and assorted findings is on its way. Next stop, 200 Likers, when we'll be drawing another winner ... watch this space and keep an eye on our website and Facebook page ... We are now using "The Hat" to draw all our winners - it's great software and is easy and reliable when working with several hundred names!
