I have the results of the Thank you for 500 Subscribers Giveaway! First let me say a huge thank you to all of you who entered; when I was going through the comments this morning I didn’t see a reply from me to all of them and I meant to do that! So thank you, thank you, thank you.

And to those of you who follow this blog, a huge thank you as well. I started this blog as a creative outlet for myself, never thinking I would connect with so many of you as I have done. This blog is a source of joy for me and I am so happy that it’s still going strong and all of you are still here. It means a lot to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Now on to the good stuff! Below is a screenshot of all the names (16) that commented on the post, within the time frame set by the rules of the giveaway. I made one entry per commenter.

And here is the screenshot immediately after I hit the Go! button for random.org to randomize the list of names. You can see the date and time stamp.

I took into consideration the prize packages each person indicated they wanted. However, as each was awarded in sequence the next name would get their choice if it was available, and if not get the next prize that was available. So based on the random list generated, here are the winners:

Prize no. 1:

andrea jacole 

Prize no. 2:

amy stewart

Prize no. 3:

marji peterson

Prize no. 4:


Prize no. 5:

cheryl wright

So the above 5 people have until midnight on Sunday, August 30 to send me their mailing details via the Contact Me button above. If I do not hear from one of the winners by the deadline I will choose the next person on the list to win that prize. And to those of you who did not win I will be having more giveaways.

Congratulations to the winners and thank you again for all your support!
