First of all...wowza!! 118 comments!! For some people and their blogs that might not seem like a big deal... but for little ol' me, it really is. I was so thrilled and happy to see the response to my Autumn Etsy give-away. It was my hope that lots of people would enter, since the point is for people to get involved and to get those beautiful Etsy shops as much recognition as possible, so when I saw how many people stopped by and took the time to enter.... well, let's just say I was doing a happy dance of my own. Thank you, everyone who commented!! You made it amazing. It was so lovely and such fun to read all about your favorite fall things and hear how you enjoy this beautiful season. And hopefully I will be able to get around and visit all the blogs of those of you who were unfamiliar to me... it's always fun making new bloggy friends. I hope many of you will come back and visit from time to time. :)
and now, let's get to the good stuff: the winners! I shall keep you in suspense no longer. Random.org did the number-choosing for me, since it seemed like the old-fashioned names-in-a-bowl might not be as efficient.
Let's start with our big winner, the girl who gets all those Etsy goodies. Ooh, I'm so excited!! I was given #8, and that just so happens to be...
Sarah, from Sensibly Sassy! Hooray, Sarah, I am so, so happy for you! I've been reading Sarah's blog for a while now, and she is so fun and sweet. And now she gets to enjoy receiving all those lovely Etsy packages in the mail. Yay!!
That was so much fun, I'm ready to do it again. Let's give away that Starbucks card! Next up is #62-- B, from Sweet Pea Sprinkles!! I don't know you (yet) B, but I'm excited for you. Also, your blog name is pretty much adorable and makes me think of cupcakes.
Now, in case you didn't read my last post, we actually have a THIRD winner. This winner will be receiving a beautiful pair of earrings, from the brand-spankin'-new Etsy shop Jessica Jones and Co. This shop just opened up, and I was so thrilled when Jessica wanted to contribute a pair of earrings for my giveaway. The more winners, the merrier, am I right? Also, I couldn't wait to introduce her and her shop to you all. Jessica is my sister-in-law, and just so happens to be my neighbor as well (we live down the street from each other). What else can I say about Jessica? She's the Diana to my Anne, the Lucy to my Ethel, my best friend. I love her dearly, and want her little shop with its beautiful jewelry to do so well. I can honestly tell you that if you choose to purchase something from her you will be supporting one of the dearest, sweetest, and hardest-working stay-at-home moms I know. So, go on over and take a peek at her handiwork!
Our third winner is #89, Sofia from Smiling at Every Sunrise!! Congratulations, Sofia, you will be receiving these:
aren't they pretty? I'm thrilled for you! Thank you for your sweet comment.
And that, my friends, is that. Thanks again for participating... I really do wish I could have had prizes for everyone! But, since I couldn't, well, that simply means I'll just have to have another giveaway... someday. I do love a good giveaway. (and this one, thanks to my crafty Etsy friends, was pretty much amazing.)
