Christmas will exit our house tomorrow. We have made the annual let's get our christmas ornaments for next year at 50% off pilgrimage.
But more importantly I have made some really nice pen-pals. Had some fun with my blog and hopefully you guys did as well.
You find out how well you are doing when you send out over 158 postcards for one giveaway (globally) and see what kind of response you get. All in all not bad.
As of this writing I am at 12934 views on my little corner of the internet.
Now down to business. I had 20 entrants in the "Derrick Dun Lost It" giveaway. I had to reject one or more due to not replying/entering within the rules. (I had to make it fair to those who read the instructions)
The rules read as follows:
"All entries MUST be received by Dec 24th (edit - I have extended this until Jan 1st, due to interest from new folks) . This "should" be more than enough time to put something in the mail. You MUST reference the giveaway "Derrick Dun Lost It" see, it's that whole reading thingy and you must be following the site. Did they just enter or did they actually read the instructions."
So with that the winner is..
So, what did Laura receive?
Tell em what she's won Don Pardo.
Well Laura, You've won a NEW CAR (yea right!). A Trip to the South of L.A. (nope)
Ok, O.J. You've won.. Get ready for it... PAPER!! That's right you've won stuff to write on and send out to unsuspecting recipients. But really what you've won is some REALLY nice stationery.
First you get this nice box of Original Crown Mill Laid paper (Cream)
Containing 50 envelopes and 100 sheets of paper.
In addition you will receive some beautiful ARPA handmade paper in our choice of color. Either Salmon or Pink (yea the photos upside down and I got lazy)
So with that folks, I bid you a Happy New year and look forward to writing/receiving more great mail and such in the future. I am already working on the next "themed" run in April. This coincides with 2 dates in history taking place on the 26th. Bonus item to anyone who knows.
If ANYONE has ideas or suggestions on types of giveaway items or content please let me know.
