Mixed Media Mania YouTube Hop Mega Winners Announcement!!!

Hi everyone! We are overwhelmed with gratitude and humbled by all of your responses to the first ever Mixed Media Mania Hop! That's right, I said first please continue to follow myself and Deedee for an announcement for the next one because this awesomeness deserves an encore! Speaking of DeeDee, I couldn't have done any of this planning, organizing, etc. without her amazingness to counter my hotmessness!! LOL Every day, as more and more of your comments came through it became clear to DeeDee and I that this hop turned out better than we could have ever imagined or hoped for when the idea came to us. The incredible talent and diversity of each artist was absolutely amazing! I learned something new from everyone and I loved how this hop was able to showcase the incredible depth of art that is Mixed Media. Every single artist in this hop has expressed the same over and over as we communicated with each other over the past 2 weeks since the hop began. Honestly, I could go on and on about how amazing this all was, how we are so grateful for each of you that decided to follow our channels and encourage us with your comments BUT we have a HUGE list of winners to announce so let’s get right to it. K, sound good?
Each list has a specific person to contact so please take note of that below.***
