We Have some Winners.....

GR&DF - over 200 comments for the drawing - a new record for the Blacksheep!! As I always view a comment as a warm hug - I am totally cyber hugged!! I do thank you all for showing your support for me and my endeavours as I squiggle me way through!!

Well, we had our very secret "Bowl of Destiny" drawing yesterday. It did get a little out of hand - but with the three who-hounds I wouldn't have expected anything else - What I did was to make an entry slip for every comment - folding them all about the same size and then mixing them repeatedly in the BoD. Siting on the floor with all eyes a'watching....

... the Hag Claw drew forth the first winner.....
(we just couldn't get one of the hounds to actually draw a name - they sniffed them all pretty hard, but drawing was just beyond them - at this point)


..... here is Lolly and Pete watching the unfolding of the paper......... and the first winner is..... MarchAnn over at Stitching Again.

Then things got a bit out of hand as the Lolly hound got all excited and knocked over the mystical BoD -

... where the Peach immediately stuck her nose in the papers and drew forth the second name stuck to her snout - here she is after sneezing it off of the snout -

...she wasn't quite sure what had been on there but she sure was getting it off!! The second winner, drawn by the Peach, is - Dani - over at Dani: Black Belt Stitching Wizard.

Now we were on a roll - since the papers took on a life of there own - the hounds where totally interested in them. It was Pete's turn to pick our third winner. He was snuffling around in the upturned bowl and out he pulled the third winner - stuck to his tongue.

That sucker was stuck and Pete couldn't figure out how to un-stick it - and he almost ate it - but before he did that - I got it and it revealed our third winner.... Lisa Clarke over at A Southern Belle Misplaced in Michigan. Congratulations to our three winners!!!

I have gotten off two emails - one to MarchAnn and one to Dani, but I do not have Lisa's email- so Lisa when you get a chance if you could send me an email with your mailing address (my email in in my profile) my plan is to have the prizes out by the end of the week - as I have to personalize them and finish them off - again I do thank you all for entering my 3rd Blogiversary drawing!!!

There you go sports fans - do stop by tomorrow for a weekend wrap up.

Take care,
edgar

The pups are so cute. I am glad they figured out how to be involved in your hobby. A little difficult when they don't have thumbs. Congratulations to the winners.

Sherry said...

what a fun post, Edgar...and the who-hounds probably wondered why the snack wasn't better than paper; although I am sure my puppy (all just under 100# of him) would have wolfed the paper down prior to name confirmation. Looking forward to seeing pics of the prizes and HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY! Love your posts!
