First I want to say, thank-you from the bottom of my heart to everyone!!! All of you, put such heart and soul, into each name you gave me! It has been so hard, truly, to pick one name! I got my mom involved with this and she said, Stacy, you have to give away more than one gift. Your friends deserve it! And, I agreed with her! My sister-in-law too, was so touched! To pick my most favourite name, I got my mom involved again. I wanted to see which name she would pick, and compare it to mine. Because, if we had two different ones, then I would have had two top names. Well, can you believe, we picked the same name!!! So, I would like to annouce the official name of my crow-........."Coal", picked by Shelle. You can visit Shelle's store here. This is the meaning Shelle gave to me, for "Coal"- something common, dark as pitch & overlooked by most... but gives energy to inanimate objects, warmth to the cold and under pressure becomes a priceless, valuable, stunning diamond!
Now, as my mom suggested, to give away more than one gift, because all of you deserve it. I put the rest of all your names into a hat and picked out two more names!!!! The first one I picked was "Calliope" from Gina. You can visit Gina's store here. Calliope" was the eldest of the Mousai (Muses), the goddesses of music, song and dance. She was also the goddess of eloquence, who bestowed her gift on kings and princes. The web site is here.
And, for my third winner, the name is "Mahala", from Marlene. You can visit Marlene's store here. The meaning of "Mahala", is tender female, an Indian name.
Shelle, and Gina, I have your address. Marlene, I know you have moved, so I will be contacting you!!!!
Hugs to everyone!!!!! Happy New Year! Here's to a fantastic 2011!!!!
