I do not have a random generator set up on my site, as I don't know how to do that, so the next best thing was to do the drawing randomly. I took all of the most recent followers and added them to the contest, as well as all blog comments on the giveaway blog, and finally any of you that were kind enough to take the time to blog about my giveaway on your blog also got your name added in. There were a total of 64 entries in this contest. A little birdie helped me out with it.Thanks to the little birdie that helped me out... lol Sorry about some of the blurry photos. Have you ever tried to take a picture before of yourself drawing a winner, with your head turned to not look? Doesn't always create the clearest photographs. lol
What is cool about this giveaway is that out of the 3 jewelry prizes, one ended up going to a customer that left a comment from Texas, one is going to a woman that was kind enough to become a follower and the last is going to one that took the extra time to blog about my contest.
Thank you to all of my loyal customers for playing along, all of my blogging buddies and to all of my newest followers, a big welcome and thank you for becoming a part of my life. I hope to get to know you all better as time goes on.
So the winners are as followers:
Marilyn Beesley is a customer and the winner of the $49 white pocket watch necklace
Fee of firstname.lastname@example.org became a follower on my blog and won the Eiffel tower square tile ball chain necklace
Sandi of impatientcajun.blogspot.com posted a blog about my giveaway.
Two of the three winners, the last two each had 3 entries in the contest for commenting, becoming followers and for taking the time to post a blog about the giveaway. I guess that shows that the odds helped them out in this case, but Marilyn's name was the first one drawn and she just had one entry in the giveaway. I guess it was just her lucky day. I hope you all enjoy your gifts. I will be contacting you and then mailing them out the first part of next week, after I get the addresses from you.
