And the Winner Is...

OK, here's the thing. I was going to pick a winner the old-fashioned way -- put the names in a hat (actually, a transferware bowl) and draw the winner. I figured I would print out the comments, cut them up and yada, yada, yada....


Well, I guess I'm lazy, but there were 24 pages of comments (I now need more ink for the printer) and after cutting up the first three pages, it sort of got old.

So I found a free, online random number generator (thanks for the tip, Abbie!) and got a winner with a few mouse clicks.

I'm blown away by the great response to my 100th post giveaway -- over 100 entries! Thank you all for your comments. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading them, and meeting some of you for the first time! Please continue to visit!

So, without further ado, the winner is...

Number 41.

And the forty-first comment came from...

Cathy, of Partly Paper. Congratulations, Cathy! If you will email me with your address, I'll send it right out to you.
Again, many thanks to all who visited and left a comment. I had a blast reading them all, and I'll definitely do this again soon!

  3. Ha ha ha - I am with you Mary on insane repetitive tasks. Last night I had to fill out birthday invites for Jack and I about lost my mind by the third invitation. By the last one I was a weeping pile of wobbly green jello. It was not a pretty site.

  7. Well geez. Now I'm devastated. I haven't been able to blog for over a week because of the holidays and company and everything else going on and I've missed out on your giveaway. (low, growling rumbles are coming from deep inside my throat as I type this).lol

    Oh well. I probably would have had to be hospitalized if I'd actually won and that's no way to start the new year, right? Right. So congrats to the winner, congrats to you on your 100th post and I hope you figure out your new camera soon because it's always a pleasure to SEE the things you like to post about!
