Whoa – what a morning. The storms last night took out our electricity, which we just got back, so I was just now able to draw names for June’s embroidery stash give-away!
This month, as you know, was a special stash contest, the likes probably not to be repeated again (well, I’ll come up with something interesting for July, surely!). In celebration of turning two years old (my website – not me), I drew two names, and asked two questions.
The answers you gave to my questions were So Helpful! I don’t know if you realize how much it takes to keep the juices flowing when writing daily (or practically daily), and not knowing what it is that actually tickles your audience’s fancy. I probably should’ve asked those questions a long time ago! You’ve given me heaps of great ideas and good advice, much of which I will take advantage of over the next few months!
Yeah, yeah… you want me just to get on with it, don’t you? I was chuckling as I drew names this morning, because the names are similar in a lot of ways, and they rhyme. I don’t know why I thought that was funny, but I did. Perhaps it was just the long hours without electricity!
OH – let me explain how I do this. I write out the names on paper (or type a list – easier to write this morning), cut them up, and draw. Those who left multiple comments only went in once, and the one or two Anonymous commentors still got in there as well, with “Anonymous” as the name, followed by keywords from their post.
I fold all the little scraps up really small and shake them up in a box, and… I draw the names.
And the winners are….
Meeta V. and MargeB.
If you would please contact me with your snail mail addresses, I’ll get the packages in the post!
I wish I could send EVERYONE a little something, but I’m afraid that would do me in! So stay tuned for July’s stash contest, which will include Something Nice, I promise!
