Oh the Thinks You Can Think!

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." ~Dr. Seuss

And what Thinks you thought up too!

There was a veritable buffet of green eggs and ham, quick trick block stacks, McElligot's pool, red fish and blue, too. There was a healthy dose of just what the Dr ordered....COLOR! Great big blocks of brights and dancing patterns and no-holds-barred hues. Love it! Even slices of the book and wire work evoking the fanciful line drawings was revealed. And so many wonderful art beads. I was completely blown away by the unbridled enthusiasm with which you jumped in for this challenge. That gives me the encouragement to keep on challenging you!

Since I am decidedly untechie, I wrote all your names on slips of paper (including all the extra entries everyone got for so graciously spreading the word and using art beads), put them in a box and drew out one name as the winner of the book charm from Esther in France.

Congratulations....

i have been so out of touch this week working on that piece that i hadn't been on blogger much... imagine my delight to come here and find out that i had won one of esther's books! thank you so much erin! for so many things - the inspiration and the wonderful gift... i look forward to the next challenge... it is always such a strange moment when you realize that something may have never come into being if it hadn't been for a motivator - i cannot imagine my necklace never being born - but it could have happened like that! so thanks for the inspiration that got me to push further than i had before...

What super challenge! I think Mary Jane's necklace would have made Dr. Seuss so proud! Truly a work of art!
I hope you are enjoying your day Erin!
