on the giveaway results (drumroll, please)...

the goods!

I feel the need to preface this entire post with a gigantic bear hug for everyone who took the time to enter my giveaway - and to promote it on their twitter or blog, as well. I had absolutely no idea that so many people would enter to win some little goodies from my shop! Sweet nelly!

(I'm basically oozing glee, in the best way possible. Although, oozing may not be the best word because, well, ew. I'll let you know when I come up with a less graphic description of my happiness.)

I could hardly wait to get on over to this morning to have the computer magically choose the winner! (I know, it would sound a lot better if I just put a bunch of bits of paper into a hat or something, which was my original idea, but do you know how long it would take to cut up 257 bits of paper? It gives me hives just thinking about it.) Anyway, without further ado, here is the winner of the goodies:

grand puh-rize!

Mandy is a serious peach and blogs over here, and I'm so thrilled to call her the winner! I will be wrapping up the items all pretty-like, and will be sending them her way soon.

Oh, and here's the other thing. I realized that since so many people took the time to enter, what's the point of having only one prize? I recently made a bunch of felt heart magnets and had an extra set floating around, so, I figured I'd pick another number and give out another prize! Here is the winner of the heart magnets:

aaand I had to give away something else.

BUT WAIT. I was having entirely too much fun clicking the button over at (it's slightly addictive) and decided to choose one more person to mail something to. It kind of worked out perfectly because I was planning on giving out hair pins, and I'm pretty sure it was destiny, due to her comment (and, yes, it was actually comment #212 - when I clicked to the second page of comments, it restarted the numbers):

I can't be stopped! I want to give everyone a prize!

So, congrats to all the winners! And thank you again to every single person who took the time to enter the giveaway! I think I'm getting the hang of this, and am already cooking up a giveaway for the holidays. Stay tuuuuned.
