Well, there were 34 entries in total. A BIG THANK YOU to EVERYONE who participated!!!! So, how did I do it? I typed out all the names, cut them into even sized pieces of paper, folded them each twice, put them in the large fairy hat and shook it like a martini. I initially tried to get the dogs to pick one up off the floor (it would have been the winner), but alas, this did not work....as it wasn't food related:) So, I waited for Rob, my husband, to get home and let him do the picking. It was fun and exciting for me too, as I personally know most of the people who participated.
Drumroll please: The FIRST BIG BLOG GIVE-AWAY has been WON by TERESA HARRIS METCALFE, of Richmond, KY. Yay Teresa!!! She tells me she 'never wins anything' so I guess the Universe decided it was high time. I hope you enjoy the piece Teresa, and fear not all, THERE WILL BE MANY MORE GIVE AWAYS. I have a whole collection of these type of works that will be going for give aways...so STAY TUNED!!!
Have a great day!
