We have a Weeener....

After a COMPLETELY scientific process, where I:
1) printed out your messages (because there were just too many to write each name by hand)
2)cut them up and put them in this sweet little Chinese Take-out box my friend Kathleen made for me (more on that in just a sec)
3) took them out because there were just too many for the secret winner picker (also known as my nine year old son) to get a "good swirl" going with his magic winner picking hand and
4) transferred them to a much larger (but still kinda Valentine-ish because it is a bright, heart stopping red) canvas bin...
I am thrilled to announce that the magic picker has chosen......
Jenny Holiday as the winner of my OWOH giveaway....
And Oh MY! am I thrilled and just a bit intimidated! I discovered Jenny's blog through this One World/One Heart giveaway and this is one talented lady... Not sure my little hearts can hold a candle to her sweet creations but I hope she likes them....
And how fun has this whole process of OWOH been? I have discovered some fantastic new blogs (and added quite a few of them on my *Blogs I Love* Sidebar) but not near as many as I could have (there just wasn't enough time to see it all), re-connected with friends and past customers and enjoyed seeing the traffic from all over the world that filtered through this page...
A HUGE thank you to everyone who posted...I couldn't reply to all, but I thoroughy enjoyed your messages....
And an EVEN BIGGER Thank you goes to Lisa Oceandreamer, for organizing such a massive event! This has been the most fun I have had in QUITE awhile...so many new friends to visit, so little time.....
Thanks to OWOH, I can now admit I am completely addicted to blogs (before OWOH, I was only *slightly* addicted)!
Last but not least, a little more about the magic winner picking box. My selling group, The Secret Society of Dirty Sisters (don't go there! "Dirty" as in grubby, old and vintage....and the "secret" is very tongue-in-cheek) recently held a Chinese Take-Out Valentines Swap....with the best of intentions, I had planned to photograph every individually wrapped oh-so-sweetly prize as I opened it, but there was chocolate in that box....good chocolate (Ritter Sport...mmmmm-mmmm-good)!
My clan of vultures, other wise known as my Mr. Sunshine and our daughter, Apple (as in "the apple doesn't fall far from his tree") have a chocolate radar that is beyond compare....Needless to say, we were all just a bit distracted....
But seriously, Kathleen sent me a lovely goodie package with rubber stamps, the cutest altered tiny journal (perfect size for my purse), some luscious soap from her home state of North Dakota, and quite a few other little treasures....Oh next time I will open my package alone and NOT get distracted by the chocolate!
Thank you, Sweet Katheen!!!
