Draw winner picked: announcement to follow soon

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who participated in my Etsy Anniversary giveaway. I never realized how much work doing a blog giveaway would be. Keeping track of every entry was an exercise in organization. I kept track of all entries by logging them into an Excel file and with all the original followers, new followers and blog links I ended up with 87 entries.

To print out all the entries to draw from a hat would have been too much work, especially in this heat (have I mentioned that we are in the midst of a stifling heat-wave? No? Well we are in the midst of a stifling heat wave and between herding the peanut under shade, into her wading pool and indoors to evade the brutal UV rays I'm finding it a chore to string a single thought together; never mind writing out every entry to throw into a hat. Enter random.org and the random number generator.

I entered the range of entries into the number generator and came up with a winner. As I included those who were already following this blog in the draw, there was a possibility that some of these followers would not be aware of the giveaway and may not be interested in participating. The winning entry is one of my original followers and I have contacted them via Email. i haven't heard back from them yet but I will keep you all informed. as details come in. In the off chance that the winning entry doesn't wish to recieve the giveaway prize I'll redo the drawing and contact a new winner
