And the winner is........

Hi Everyone,

OMGosh, what a wonderful day spent blog hopping.

As I counted out who had what and how many entries in my giveaway, I spent time on everyones blog to confirm that yes they had posted or linked or something so that I could give all of the extra entries to you.

I have read about your families, and cute furball pets/babies. I have drooled over all of your lovely art projects, printed out your recipes, listened to your music, entered in some of your own contest giveaways and became followers of some of your blogs too. Then some of you insisted that I visit your friends blogs because they too were so wonderful. At times I must have had 20 browser tabs going at once with over lapping music. It was Chaotic delight!
My head was just spinning and I tried to stop, but each blog I went to teased me with yet another lovely morsel of color and visual eye candy!

So below is the list of entries allotted for each person. Then I wrote them out on paper and dumped them all into a bowl and hubby drew the winners name.

I wish I could have a box for everyone, well I could, but I cant afford the shipping.

In sort of the same order as was posted, if I missed giving you an entry it may have been that I couldn't find it, or just forgot. I realize this was a big task to confirm referrals and trace back the steps to each blog. But the list below stands as the official list of entries. My appologies if I missed one of yours.

artistamyjo blog is Art from the heart

I had a good laugh when I saw it was Amy Jo that posted a comment that she would take the cat!

LOL So I told Ratatooie that if he was bad I was going to ship him with the package to his new Fairy GodMother AmyJo, especially now that I will have her address!

Just kidding of course, how could Ratty ever be bad right? Just go look at his little face! But all the same he has a backup plan.....

I thank everyone for participating and for all of your fun and lovely comments. I am hoping to offer more of these giveaway boxes later on this year so do stop in and check. Will also be posting some of these boxes on eBay for sale in the near future.

If you can never have enough art and creativity to inspire you, why don't you stop by Paper Digital Art and Imagesbykim and join our forum for even more fun, challenges, freebees, giveaways and inspiration. I would love to have all of you there! Membership is free!

Entries are now closed

HI Everyone,

The entries for my art box giveaway are now closed. It will take me a day or so to get the tally of all of the entries and I will post a list of all and make the draw. The reason it takes so long is because i get caught up reading all of your blogs and end up following links to your other friends blogs too! Its a great way to spend a day!

Today I will gather everything that is going in the box and takes some pics for all to see.

Thank-you very much for all of your lovely comments and for entering. Good luck to all of you!
