    OWOH - The Winners Are......

    DRUM ROLL PLEASE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The Cell Phone pouch goes to commenter #276: MandaPanda. She left this comment, "Wow, what beautiful giveaways, and a great blog to match! I can't believe you don't have more comments as the pouch is just awesome! Please enter my name into the hat!" on February 7th at 6:43 PM.

    The Betty Boop fabric goes to commenter #44: Bibi. She left this comment, "ooh - what scrumptious goodies! Please enter me. I'm at, and am planning to participate too, but only found out about this today, so won't get my giveaway together until the weekend - do check back then" on January 20th at 8:54 AM.

    The Journal package goes to commenter #224: Nellie. She left this comment, "Wow! Add me to this long list of people lined up for your wonderful gifts. Thank you." on January 31st at 9:07 PM.

    Congrats, ladies! I will be contacting you personally very shortly.

    I would also like to say, "THANK YOU SO MUCH" to everyone who took the time to stop by and enter. The finally tally was 317 - WOW! How cool.

    I had so much fun doing this. And I did my best to visit the other participants on the Gypsy Caravan but with 911, I'm afraid it became an impossible task. LOL.

    Just a quick note to explain how the winners for my give aways were chosen, so that there won't be any eye-brows raised or questions.

    As the comments came in I approved them and placed the confirmation email in a separate folder. I allowed comments until 11:59 PM on February 11, 2009 (my time). Unfortunately, I did have to reject the 2 comments that were left late.

    Next I used the Random Number Generator (RNG) to pick my numbers. I had 317 comments, for 3 prizes. I set up the RNG to use numbers between 1 and 317 and to arrange them in 3 columns. I took the top/first number from each column.

    I then went back to my blog comments and counted (three times) the comments and chose the winners, in the original order by using the date stamp on the comment.

    I have taken extra care to ensure that there was no mistakes in my counting/choosing. BUT if anyone happens to find a mistake, please contact me immediately and I will get it rectified. Because I have announced the winners based on my calculations, I will add additional prizes if necessary.

    Hello Ladies! Thanks so much for responding/commenting.

    I ask that you give me a couple of days to get back to you. We're painting and I've been locked out of my studio. I will be in touch!
