Friendship Bracelet Book Winners

It’s time to announce the two lucky winners of the Klutz Friendship book giveaway.
Thank you readers for all your really kind comments about my blog. I wish I could give a book to all 113 of you, but alas there can only be two winners. The winning screen names I randomly selected are: “Gerky” and “sew happy Stacy”. Congratulations ladies, you win 2 books each – one to keep and one to give away. Please email me your addresses so the books can be sent on their way. Thanks again to Klutz Publications for this great giveaway!

I fully admit I stalk your blog everyday. Is there some way to split you in half and have you come to Nevada to teach art? :) I would love to learn how to do bracelets with my daughters! Thanks again for sharing your wonderful and creative talents! I know our lives are a lot more colorful and happier because of it!

I've never tried these with a group. How long does it take most kids to finish a bracelet? Are the boys as interested as the girls?

Great, great site...I appreciate your work and ideas!

I teach third grade - LOVE your website. My classroom looks beautiful and seasonal thanks to you! Plan to use friendship bracelets as a February project - the books would help!

Justine Gamble said...

We really enjoy the Klutz books. We just moved to TN from OR - my nine year old is really missing her friends - she would love to make these and send some to them. Also, we are really enjoying your site. Just discovered it this school year. I use it for homeschool with my five kids and I use it for a homeschool art group that I started this year - there are anywhere from 18-27 kids involved depending on the projects.

Tricia said...

Like Justine, I use your site for inspiration for an art class I teach for our homeschool co-op. Thanks for all the great ideas! Hope I win the give-away. I know tons of girls who would love this.

Hey from Indian Rocks, Florida. I love your site, and have been inspired to do many projects with my students using your ideas and even some murals. I've never made a friendship bracelet though and would love to learn.
I've seen the kids, (boys and girls alike) in our school who have come in showing off with their new bracelets. Its a Great way for us to give to others. Love that you are giving 2 books so that we can also share. The world can be a better place if we are all friends.

Christine said...

Thank-you so much for all of your work. ART is the best.

Mindy said...

Oh! I keep wanting to teach my daughters how to make these bracelets...and then realize I don't remember how to make the ones I thought I knew how to make! This book would be perfect for them. Thank you for all of your fabulous ideas...they are priceless for my homeschool...and for my crafty-but-not-artistic personal style--you fill in so many blanks for me!! :)

What a great way to start 2010...giving a book to a friend! Thank you so much for your blog. It has helped this "artistically-challenged" homeschool mom teach her two talented children some amazing art projects.

grinningmom said...

I was thrilled to find this blog. My kids and I have been making our Christmas thank you cards using many of your ideas. So far our favorite is the Abstract Winter Trees, but today we will be doing the Joan Miro project -so that may become the new favorite. My favorite part is watching the personality of each of my kids shine through their art. We all follow the same directions but the finished products are all original. Thank you for sharing your talent with us!
