The Results Are In...

The entries have been counted. And recounted. The hanging chads have been closely examined.

Our tabulations went late into the night. Many valuable lessons have been learned about blog giveaways- next time it will be far less complex. There were many links to check and blog posts to read, and when all was said and done we came up with 922 entries- WOW!


Each entry was assigned a number and placed into an excel document (I did mention we were up late... right?!). Then, we headed over to random.org to find our contest winner. Don't worry, we had quite the ceremony. Joe provided the drumroll via his thumbs and laptop surface- I did the announcing. It was such a thrill to scroll through our excel document to see who our slipper recipient would be.


And the winner of the E2K Slipper Giveaway is...

Oh, fun! The burgundy wine with any of the silvery buttons.

So Tara, we suggest tonight you celebrate with a nice glass of burgundy wine to go with your new pair of French Press Felted Slippers. But keep your thank-you speech to a minimum, you have only 48 hours to claim your prize or else we strike up the music, cut to commercials, and pick another winner.


And speaking of picking other winners...


The lure of generating another number through random.org, proved to be too great. So we doubled our fun and picked again...Susan said...

I never win stuff on blog giveaways, but why not? I keep meaning to pick up the pattern and make myself a pair and a few for gifts. Burgandy Wine slippers would be cute. I'm having trouble picking a button! If I win, can you surprise me?

So Susan, it turns out you do win stuff on blog giveaways. Lucky for you we couldn't pick just one. Perhaps you can meet up with Tara for the celebration, as you both seem to have a penchant for wine. 48 hours to claim your prize.


Thanks so much to all who participated! It really was a great time seeing the response. Stay tuned for more patterns, and more giveaways!
