If you missed out on Opening Night, we missed you!  It was mucho fun...a huge thank you to Aly Brooks of Style Please and A Little Great for putting together a fabulous fashion show, to Double or Nothing for rockin' the house, to The Pink Chandelier for the giveaways and pink cupcakes, and to Lauri Cox, our favorite ArtGirl, and Deon Thomas of Tribal Jewelry for teaching our fabulous mini classes!  Wow...what a night!

Let's hit the giveaways.

Kathy Graham of The Chocolate Haven is new to our show, and I've already heard raves.  She says, "I make the best chocolates,in the finest of English traditions. I am from England myself. I moved here about 26 years ago, and discovered you darling Americans have been duped for many years in the chocolate department! Sorry, but true! So, when I started to learn the fine art of chocolate making, I decided to share the English Tradition of creamy milk chocolate for an absoloute taste sensation! I refuse to use anything but the creamiest milk chocolate for all that I do...even my hand made Traditional Easter Eggs are  made with the same creamy dipping chocolate."

I think you'll be excited to know that Kathy is giving away a half pound box of her English Toffee to two OSS friends, so be sure to leave a comment here!

Colleen Peck of CounteFitCakes says, "I have been making real cakes for my family's weddings, birthdays, anniversaries etc. for a few years.  One comment that I frequently hear is, "Don't you hate to cut into that beautiful cake?"  The idea came to me that it would be fun to make, CounterFitCakes.  You can display these fun cakes in your home kitchen, business, or anywhere.  They never need to be cut into, (well you could cut into them but these wouldn't taste very good!), and they always make a room look inviting!  Because of the glass domes that are over CounterFitCakes, dusting is alway easy.  That is a plus, I'm sure you would agree.  
Colleen is happy to give a lucky OSS fan a 5"x3" white gumpaste bow with swirls, green leaves, and a swiss dot pattern on the loops, valued at $30.  This bow would make a beautiful addition to the top of any cake! Although this bow is edible, most people like to take them off before serving their cake and save it for the top of a future cake.

We've always loved Oléa Gough's original-art flannel board stories from Rising Moon Adventures.  She takes all of our favorite stories and songs and makes them come to life!  Oléa would love to give you her flannel art that you can use while singing to your children about ten penguins crowded in a bed...'Ten penguins in a bed and the little one said, "I'm crowded, roll over."  So they all rolled over and one fell out.  Nine penguins in the bed and the little one said...'  I think they'll love it!

Every comment will be entered into the drawing and the winners will be announced tomorrow morning.  Good luck!
