After much checking of entries, I finally have a winner for the giveaway!
a Rafflecopter giveaway
Congratulations to Carolyn! I have let her know by e-mail that she won; I know that Carolyn is a common name, so if you think this might be you but you didn't receive an e-mail from me, check your spam folder for a message from firstname.lastname@example.org. :)
Thanks to everyone who has supported me over the past year, and thanks to all my new followers! I've read all your comments, and by far the most requested thing for the new year is...tutorials. I'm looking forward to getting better at doing these by practicing, practicing, practicing. I'll be doing this primarily via step-by-step posts with (hopefully) accompanying pictures. If there are any techniques or anything you'd particularly like to see, let me know and I will do me best to make a tutorial for you! Thanks for all the encouragement on this. :)
Of course there will also be more nail art, dupe posts, and I'll do some comparison posts of similar colors that I have. :)
I can't tell you how much it means to me to have you all as followers, and how much I do a little happy dance every time I see a comment or a new follower. You guys rock!!
Big, huge, monster, bear hugs. :)
