And The Winner Is......

We have a winner!  We reached 1016 (actually, 1019) views on my "Circles" video last night.  This is my first video to have over 1000 views!

Here's how I chose the winner.....

Everyone's name was written on a strip of paper and folded into an origami bird (not really, but that would have been cute).

Then, I tossed them around for a while.

Then I picked one.  You can tell that it's me because I have paint on my hands and my nails look like crap.

And......the winner is......Jane Wetzel!  (insert applause)  Congratulations Jane (please send your mailing address to and I will send the "Circles" to you.

Now wasn't that fun??

Again, thank you all so much for helping me over this 1000 view mark.

I will be having another giveaway in a few weeks.  I'm not allowed to tell you what it is, but it's going to be, really, good.

Have a great Sunday!!




  1. Woooo! Hoooooo!!!! Thank you so much! Sending cyber hugs your way! :)

  2. Congratulations Jane! I just found this blog and am so excited to see all your videos Cyndi. I am retiring in May and thinking of doing some videos for my blog. Looking at cameras right now to invest in. Your videos seem to be nice and clear Cyndi. Do you care sharing the type of camera that you use and if you like the editing ability for your shareable videos?

    1. Thank you for your nice comment. I wish that I could give you some good advise on cameras, but I'm having camera issues, myself, right now. I've been shooting all of my videos with my iphone6. However, if you watch tomorrow's Creative Heart Monday video, you will see that it got a little "foggy". I plan to purchase a nice camera soon, but I'm not sure what I'll get. I'm still trying to get information from other video makers. If you have a good phone, you can certainly make a video. I use MovieMaker for editing. It's the free software from Microsoft. It is really easy to use. It took me several videos to figure out all of the options that were available to me, but I, finally, figured out "fade in", how to turn down the background noise, etc. So, I would try your phone first. You will need a tripod that has a little extension to hold a phone over your work. I look forward to seeing your videos and if you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
