Pssst.......... do you want to know who the winner is?

Well, its done. I gave myself writer's cramp this morning, putting all the names, and many of them twice, on little bits of paper, but........ I love the physical act of drawing a winner. All the excitement of filling the heart shaped box, shaking it lots of times, getting my hands in there and turning all the little pieces over and over........ so much more satisfying than an online random number generator.

I was bowled over by the response I had to this giveaway and all the really wonderful comments. New people found my blog, and I found new blogs to read and admire. Thank you all so much for visiting, taking part, commenting, and not just on the giveaway post, but on so many other posts as well.

Look at all these -


And the name which I finally drew out of the box, after much shaking and turning was -


Congratulations, Gerry, you have won the giveaway! I'll email you shortly. The 2 after her name was there because she had put the button on her blog, so she had a second slip of paper put in, and that was the one which won her the giveaway. Gerry is fairly new to blogging, so it would be really nice if some of you popped over there and said hello.

I was so chuffed with the response, and it was such a lovely morning with blue sky and sunshine, and I felt so happy, I decided to have a runner up prize as well. Just a little something to craft with, whatever the winner is into. And the name of that person is -


Yoohooooo, Kim! That would be you residing in the Sheep's Nest! I'll email you shortly as well.

Sorry all you other lovely people didn't win, but it won't be long before I'll get the urge to have another giveaway, I am sure. So stay tuned!

Have a lovely week,
xx

Oh bother, bother, bother! Those are two very lucky ladies, well done to you both.

Gosh Liz you must have had a good day! Two for the price of one aye? It's hard to stop sometimes. Our girls keep pulling names out after the winner and it makes me feel so bad for those names pulled out afterwards.

Ohh, lucky people! You did present the draw very prettily, Liz. I'm also crazy about your lace presentation below - I'm going to have to think about how I can do something like that.

Hello
Congratulations to the winner! What a lovely giveaway. It is nice to find you also. I don't do much blog hopping these days, it seems I am always playing catch up. I love your lace tags, what kind of ink do you use to stain them. Usually I use coffee but yours seem a little darker and I like that.
Blessings to you
Rebecca

Thanks to everyone for the congratulation notes, just love it all! Good news, this is, to a new blogger. I have been watching my follower chart build up so I will have a Give-A-Way too...soon!
