Winner announced in Blogging Anniversary Giveaway (sorry it’s late)

Congratulations to CAROLYN, number 14 and winner of my 2-Year Blogging Anniversary Giveaway. I’ve e-mailed her asking for her mailing address so that I can mail the framed print to her. (She’s chosen the walnut beaded frame).

Thanks to everyone for playing and here’s how ridiculously forgetful I am. You ready?

For some reason, I thought I was supposed to choose the winner around 9 PM and post it at 10 PM. Why? I have no idea. So this evening, after dinner, I am sitting here reading my post and see that what I wrote was that I would post at 10 AM today. Not 10 PM.

Yes, welcome to my life.

Anyway, we have a winner but I do regret to inform you that another number came up before Carolyn’s. This person had not included the e-mail address and this was one of the stipulations. I tried, in vain, to see if they’d commented before and if I had a copy of their e-mail address in my g-mail account. Nada. I couldn’t link to their blog because it was an Anonymous post. So please, in the future, include your e-mail address so I can contact you.

Winner-Random Winner-Carolyn

For those who didn’t win: I’ve got another Giveaway coming up. I noticed that I’m coming up on rounding another 100 followers and that’s reason enough to hold another Giveaway. So some time this week, or next . . . look for another prize to be offered on this blog.

Thanks to everyone for playing. Thanks also for your congratulatory comments. I wish I could afford to award more winners. Maybe I should get some advertising on this blog to help with the costs of prizes . . . I don’t know.

Until tomorrow, my friends

Congratulations to Carolyn, and congratulations on your blogiversary. 400 followers? That is outstanding. I had 35 but now I'm down to 34. Yes, that's right. Going backwards. The story of my life.

Can't wait for the February trip.

Eek - you have nearly 400 followers! I'm not up to 100 yet - but then I'm not the photographer you are. :-) Was pretty pleased with my waves pictures taken yesterday, though. Come on over and look!

heha...for carolyn. and for your wonderful blog. here's a super simple one but says how i feel about losing! ...you can't always get what you want.....

Congrats to the winner. Admitting to being slightly disappointed... heh.

I feel very connected to you Kate - that is totally something I would do!

And I say, go with the ads if you want. I did (kinda with Blogher) and I haven't been struck down by lightening. Pays for postage for prizes at my place!

Amy said...

What a generous soul you are, having giveaway's everytime you want to celebrate something!! This won't be long because I can hear the cats harrassing the guinea pig downstairs and need to go tell them to stop...but just wanted to congratulate the winner and wish you a wonderful day!! Hugs from chilly Norway...-15C today- looks gorgeous- will try and take photos and blog later but getting a house full of company today- we're going to a dog show tomorrow and my pups will be shown and Nanna...wish us luck!!

Hilary said...

Ah.....no advertising......no!!!!!
I think the prize should just be stopping by....that is a win every time for me.

Hey it's my blogging friend Carolynn! Congratulations!

I tried a little advertising but didn't have any luck with it. Maybe you would be more successful than I was Kate since you have more followers. Blogher seems to be the best way to go but they haven't been accepting any new blogs for a while.

Congrats to Carolyn. Maybe;)

LOL My wv: pettylot Pretty much what I am!

Carolynn said...

Oh my gawd! I can honestly say it was a huge surprise to read THAT this morning. I'm so incredibly thrilled and delighted and excited to receive this incredibly generous and beautiful gift.

Am I gushing...?

Although, I am sorry for Mr. or Ms. Anonymous.

Thank you!!
