To announce the winner that is! Bet you thought this day would never come. Seems like I have been gone for an eternity. A few days away from the computer and you miss sooooo much. Glad to be back. And you can bet I will be trolling the halls of blogland trying to catch up on all that went on in my absence. Of course, it will take me longer than usual. I have so many new friends to visit. I am beyond excited!
Now for the winner. I want to explain my process before I tell you who won. Consider it that commercial break they always take on TV just before making a big announcement. The one that always comes, yet you watch in anticipation, thinking just this once they will cut to the chase. But it never happens. *sigh*
So I had three ways for you to enter. Of course, I only made one mandatory, but you guys blew me away. A huge percentage of you did all 3! I debated the most fair way to select the winner and this is what I came up with. Each eligible comment was assigned a consecutive number, followed by a number being given for linking me to your blog and then one for becoming a follower. I assigned the additional entry numbers in the same order as the comments were made. Make sense? Then I plugged those numbers into the random number generator and it spit out the winning number. And that belongs to Staci Taylor!!!!
Congratulations Staci!!!! Please email me your mailing address and I will get your big bag of goodies off to you!
I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the response to this post. You far exceeded any expectations I had for this fun little game. And believe me when I say, I feel truly honored that you all were so willing to take the time to comment with such gusto and share your friends with me. Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!
