Sew Grateful Week : And the Winner Is.....


This morning I had the very fun and nerve-wracking task of drawing the winner for my giveaway.  Don't ask me why I was nervous (I have no idea!) but I woke up several times last night thinking about it...

First task was to choose a hat to draw a name out of...  I thought this pink confection would be perfect!


Then I typed everyones names out (multiple times in most cases), cut all the entries out, folded them in thirds and put them in the hat.


This took much longer than I expected, cause there was about 130 entries!!!!  WAAAAAAY more than I anticipated when I started!!

Then I looked around for an impartial observer.


Stella looks a bit feral this morning - we went for a long walk and there was a heavy dew, so she came back saturated.

I stuck my hand in and swirled it around as Stella looked on.


Excuse the slightly blurry photo - its hard to swirl entries in a hat, making sure Stella doesn't 'help' and run off with some entries, and take a photo all at the same time!!!

Then I drew out a name...  AND THE WINNER IS....


YAY FOR SHANNON!!!!!

Shannon, can you please send me an email to beccieblossom(at)gmail.com and we'll get this show on the road!

I really wish I could have given away a skirt to everyone that entered... thank you so much for your support, its been overwhelming.

  6. lol! your pink hat and stella have made this drawing fun :D congratulations shannon! cant wait to see this awesome skirt on you. again, beccie, so awesome of you to do this.
    btw - quick question. i updid my hair in victory rolls today (yeah you-tube and yeah me :D) and i even did my eyes and put on RED lipstick. but for some reason my victory rolls instead of making me look sultry and sexy make me look like a sweet little girl, even with the red lipstick lol. what have i done wrong? is it that victory rolls just dont work on shorter hair? or on curly hair? that said, ive gotten so many compliments on my eyes today :D i think having hair up and eyeliner + mascara helps them stand out.

    1. Stella wanted to help (which means running off with bits of paper) so it was a good thing I stuck her on a table to do the draw!!!

      Did you happen to take a photo Rebecca??? Why don't you pop on over to my Facebook page and send me a message and I'll be happy to give you some advice :) and that's fabulous that you got compliments!!!

    1. Stella is a bit put out that Shannon is the centre of attention and not her... I'll tell her that a blogging celebrity thinks she's cute - that'll fix it :D
