And the Winner Is....

Ok, like I was just going to tell you with absolutely no rambling first. Yeah, right! First I'd like to say thank you to everyone who commented on my 50th post. This blogging journey has been a blast so far and I am loving it and all the wonderful folks I'm "meeting". I wish I could have just sent packages to everyone who commented -- but, well, I need to have SOME fabric to play with (cough, splutter, um, yeah...moving on here).

My able assistant was very helpful in picking names from her Daddy's hat (and sorry about the photo quality folks -- we had to wait until after dinner, and the light is getting fainter earlier these days *sigh*). And despite offers of bribes (now, had you offered bribes of gummi bears and other assorted sweets to ME to stuff the ballots so to say -- well, now that might have worked ;0) )-- she did a really great job of ruffling up the slips of paper names were written on before drawing.


Though, we still need to work on this whole "counting" thing! 'Cause before I could even read the name on the first slip of paper she gave me -- I was being handed another one. I honestly didn't know whose name was drawn first (and I kind of thought this would happen) so we actually have TWO winners! Sorry to say I did pull the hat away as she was going in for a third strike (and fourth -- she's started counting up to 12 people and likes showing off her skills -- really, my stash isn't THAT big, or so I tell my husband).

So without further ado, the winners are:


and

Quilting Fitzy (or is it now Quilted Cactus? :0) )

The winners have been notified by email and now for the really fun part, I get to go and play in my stash!!! Hehehehe. I wonder what goodies I'll find?

Thanks again to everyone who played along with me (and for those of you who are still lurking -- for goodness sakes why?? Really, I don't bite, and well, would be hard to over the internet anyway). Keep on reading and we'll see what I end up doing for post 100!

Oh and for anyone who is truly curious to know who that lady hiding behind the hat is -- um, me. Some careful editing made sure the fat rolls weren't showing and/or were well hidden behind toddler cuteness. If you REALLY want to know what an adult me looks like (as you can tell, vanity is NOT my name. Other faults yep -- that one, so not one of mine) you can go here and see a semi-recent photo. I'm the one in the orange shirt demoing yo-yo's. The picture's been up for a while, I've just kept on forgetting to link to it, mention it, think about the fact that I need to exercise more and eat less...oh well. Oh, and if you've got a moment, Tammy of Tammy Tadd Designs has started her own blog. Check it out and say Hi!

Congratulations to the two winners. Just too bad, I will keep the gummi bears for me and will exercice some time later! Thanks for the drawing and take care.

Congratulations winners!

I am so very camera shy my son once complained about it. He has very few pictures of me. I told him that it shows how much I love him, because he HAS pictures of me. :)

QuiltingFitzy said...

Well...Quilting Fitzy lives at Quilted Cactus. Will that suffice? I guess it is confusing, sorry.

I'm a weiner, I'm a weiner! I'm doing the happy dance, yippee skippee.

Thanks SO much. Honey, is the mail here yet? (The adult version of "Are we there yet?")

Congrats to the winners and to you for your 50th post! I am getting close to 100...50 passed by without me noticing, the blabbermouth that I am. I visited Tammys blog. What a beautiful shop...I HAVE to come to DeKalb now!! Any you in the orange shirt are a beauty!!

Linda said...

Oh well, maybe next time :) Great helper - my helpers (I had three under 5s - two borrowed, I hasten to add) were similarly challenged when it came to stopping...

When you said "demoing yo-yo" my mind pictured you with a toy yo-yo doing Trip Around the World, Cat's Cradle... D'oh.

Laurie Ann said...

No need to hide behind toddler cuteness, you're cute too! It's nice to put a face with your words. Congrats to the 2 contest winners!

Kairle said...

I don't know much about computers, but I, too, know how to CROP! LOL!!!

Congratulations to the winners. I'm putting "gummi bears and other sweet stuff" in my Rolodex under "Angela" for future reference. Okay...I don't really even have a Rolodex, but it might be worth getting!

Congrats to the winners - I know you will find wonderful treasures for them, and will enjoy yourself tremendously in the process!
Whenever I get to my 50th post - I'm still in the 30's - may I borrow your very able assistant? Not only is she cute, but oh so very talented!! I can most certainly bribe with gummi bears!
