It’s the 14th – well, for we who dwell in the land that sees the first rays of the sun on any new day, it is – and today is the day!
The Contented Crafter Etsy Store is open and the draw has been drawn!
There was one slight glitch in my plan and that was YD’s going out of town for the week – she was to be the guest drawer. So it was down to me as Orlando is no use in that department at all and everybody else was at work.
Every person who commented had their name written in my lovely scrawl on a piece of cut up paper from my notebook – thirteen in all:
If you can’t see your name, it’s because it is underneath somebody else’s – it is there I promise – I just didn’t think to lay them all out side by side. Sometimes it’s your blog name and sometimes it’s your actual name – just depending on which one fell out of my head as I started writing………
Here is the chosen receptacle, my favourite ‘shabby chic’ style coffee mug:
Here are the names in the receptacle
They don’t take up much room!
I put my hand over the top of the mug and shook it energetically, then, without looking, rummaged around and pulled out a strip of paper
Congratulations to Elaine over at fingerprintwriting.
Elaine, you will need to email me your address so I can get your numbered and signed limited edition print of ‘Be a Butterfly’ away to you
Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment, I so appreciate all your good wishes, advice and cheering on! Hugs to you all!

Congrats to the winner! And you for opening your Etsy store! I wish you much success! And many blessings: D.. Now I am of to check your store… How exciting!
What a day it was! I was feeling quite stressed with last minute issues arising and not having a second original canvas ready to put in ….. and then within an hour of opening my first sale – I was amazed – and then my first [and only] canvas was sold – I went off to bed feeling so blessed 🙂
That is amazing!!! Congratulations Pauline! Feeling blessed is the best feeling. I am so happy for you!
Lucky Elaine 🙂 I am sure she will treasure it.
I’m glad it was Elaine, but I’m sorry it wasn’t everybody else – I’m just going to have to do more give-aways! 🙂
Ooooh, what a good idea 🙂 🙂
Yah!!! Let the good times roll. Congratulations Finger Print Writing you lucky duck 😀 I must now go look for my own masterpiece 😀 Lovely to have been included. Thanks for the thrill Pauline!
I’m sorry it wasn’t your name Boomdee – but you never know what might happen…… I quite like this giveaway thing, it is so much fun 🙂
Yaaay! Congrats on a fabulous achievement!! Now I’m off to browse your new store! : )))xox
It’s been quite intense getting it all up and running – there is still a big glitch with the payment thing which we are working on – but that’s okay – I don’t imagine there will be hordes lining up to purchase stuff 🙂
More to upload as well, but I will do it slowly.
Thank you for that great show of enthusiasm though – makes me feel so happy 🙂
