Both prizes are absolutely fantastic. I went to check Jess' shop already yesterday, and I directly fell for two similar connectors. Wanted to buy them of course, but I have placed a shopping embargo on myself ... Another time maybe.

And that online work-shop. Wow! I wanna take part in it so much. What a great thing.
