DRUMROLL, please.......


I am pleased to announce that the names have been written & gathered:::



My early bird readily helped pick the names:::


And for some strange reason (probably because we watched the new Alice in Wonderland the other night, and I'm feeling a bit quirky) I decided beforehand that the winner would be the LAST name picked:::

(sorry, Debbie)



AND, SOOOOOOO, THE WINNER IS:::



CONGRATULATIONS, BETH!!!!!

Beth was on my hall in college and I remember her room being filled with handcrafted items like a twig photo frame & a funky curtain. I was always enthralled every time I entered her room! :) You can follow her life happenings w. her adorable 4 kids & great husband (who had a huge scare in the beginning of this year) here & her creative ventures here.

AND, since I am from a family of FAIRNESS to the max, I am going to give the runner-up, actually being the FIRST name drawn, a sample package, that being ONE CARD/ENV. of each color:::which goes to my friend (and recent addict of the cricut),



***and this all would have been announced earlier, but things like making rhubarb sauce, little boys taking way-to-long to finish their morning chores & a tired momma made it ONE of those mornings. (smile, smile* sigh, sigh*).

THANK YOU for joining in on this first giveaway.
There will DEFINITELY be more of these coming your way!!!!

(*winners: please email me---how's about FB message me---your addresses so I can get those lil' packages your way!)

DEB: I KNOW!!!!!! I had just made the decision to do it backwards, and what do you know, there was YOUR NAME to come out first. I ALMOST changed my mind for you, but figured I better stick to it. :(

Beth said...

NO NO NO NO way!!!! yeah for me!!! I almost didn't even comment because of course I never win, but I thought it wasn't nice for you not to see lots of comments on your post and then here I am, a winner! This is really thrilling. Thank you for your sweet comments, Erin. You are such a good true forever friend (NOT just because you give me things!). I'll fb you right now.
