And the Winners Are...

Wow! What a fun week! So many thanks to each of you for sharing these inspiring and meaningful quotes with me and with each other. What a joy it's been to read and ponder these colorful reflections and observations that lift our spirits and shed light on our common hopes for something better. I will surely print out all my favorites (there are many!) and keep them close by to read from time-to-time as wise reminders. Here are a few more quotes I wanted to share with you:

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

~Albert Schweitzer

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

~John F. Kennedy

Wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.

~Kahlil Gibran

Ok, and now...the winners. So sorry I didn't get around to posting this last night. I actually did do the drawing before the stroke of midnight, so technically it was on Tuesday. But I experienced some technical difficulties that had me looking for a quote about patience! Without further ado, here are all your names before heading into the bag:

BloggerAnd here is the bag!
This was sent to me from the wonderful and talented Sherri and I simply adore it. You can even make one yourself, thanks to Rachel's tutorial! And it occurred to me that aside from being so cute, it's also perfect for picking names out of! Here are all your names in the bag:
Do you think I can drag this out any longer? Ok, so the winner of the designer bundle (aka: rolled layer cake) is:
Congratulations! Sheila's quote was from the Dalai Lama:

I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.

What a beautiful and universal thought! Thank you, Sheila.

And the winner of the charm pack is:
Congratulations, Kaye! She shared two quotes with us. (I love them both!):

Always do right. This will gratify some and astonish the rest.

~Mark Twain

If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse.
~Walt Disney
