The winner of my “Junk Gypsy, All That Glitters” giveaway is Marjie Long, who left this comment in response to “Tell me how MaryJanesFarm has inspired you to upcycle a junk find.”
“Re-purpose, re-cycle, or up-cycle is the main theme here at our home on the Ranch. Not much gets thrown away—someone is always needing something to finish a job, so we go to the old bins, be they old granite bowls found in the pastures or an old post office cabinet. We just hung 2 old wood and screen doors in our remodeled chicken pen. I enjoy the magazine very much—look forward to it coming in the mail.”
The winner of my “My Gratitude Journal, All That Glitters” giveaway is Zona Hague, who left this comment in response to “Tell me some one thing you’re grateful for this day, TODAY.”
“I am so very grateful for our very young grandchildren!! Their grandpa + I can protect them, pray, and care for them—we can love and cuddle them and reassure them we will keep them safe, when they are scared watching their divorced parents fight in front of them, resulting in repeat police visits. This journal would be a blessing for them, to write even the small things that are secure + beautiful in their small lives/world!!”
The winner of my “LuLaRoe, All That Glitters” giveaway is Shelli L Miller, who left this comment in response to “Tell me what your favorite woman-run business is.”
“The Heritage Hut owned by Mary Kanesny in Wichita, KS, is a unique yarn and weaving shop. This business has served for many years as a gathering place for women and young girls who are interested in learning now-rare skills such as loom weaving and tatting, along with traditional knitting and crochet.”
The winner of my “Organic on-the-go, All That Glitters” giveaway is Heather Neeper, who left this comment in response to “Tell me how you discovered us.”
“My mother-in-law would buy MJF magazine and I would read them when she was finished. Not wanting to miss one, I got a subscription. I still have every issue! They’re too good to give up … LOL!!!
The winner of my “Kazoo, All That Glitters” giveaway is Suaan Sims, who left this comment in response to “Tell me how you or someone else has inspired girls to be strong, smart, fierce and, above all, true to themselves (Kazoo’s mission).”
“My mother is 92 years young, and from the time I was a little girl, I played under the quilting frame. She made many quilts over the years, and as my sister and I watched and learned, she inspired us to make quilts, as well as sew our clothes and those of our kids. She makes quilts today, and has warmed many, many relatives with those quilts. She is truly a pioneer and an inspiration for all her grandchildren and nieces.”
Thank you to the hundreds of women who responded with such thoughtful comments! If you’re one of our winners, keep an eye out for an email from the farm.
