drumroll please...

Well, my first ever give-away has officially come to a close. After a slow start, I ended up having exactly 20 entries - which was what I was hoping for.

To pick the winners, I used I was actually nervous for some reason, as I entered in the information and waited to see who the winners were. Well, perhaps nervous isn't the right word - but there were butterflies in my stomach anyway. How exciting! (or pathetic...I'm not really sure which one)

Anyway, without any further ado, the winner of the first pair of earrings (the beautiful leaf earrings) is.....

...Kathy! Congrats to you, my beautiful friend. Now we can be same-ers with our matching earrings!

And the winner of the 2nd just-as-beautiful pair (that I wish was in my own personal earring collection along with the leaf ones I already have) is none other than... lovely sister Michelle! Congrats, big sis!

You two lucky ladies have until 9am Thursday, September 1st (that's tomorrow!) to email me with your correct mailing addresses ( to ) or else I'll need to pick new recipients. So don't take as long to reply to this as you did to enter the give-away! ;)

As for the rest of you - I seriously am thankful that you all took the time to enter this contest. And that you all take the time to read this blog, even if you don't very often comment (I know how it is).

And all of the questions that were asked of me are great questions! The answers will be coming in future posts...and yes, posts as in plural - some of those questions are doozies that will require long answers! But I'm excited to get the answers to you and hopefully get you all to know even more about me than you already do! So make sure you check back over the course of the next few weeks to find the answers to your questions!

And another HUGE thank-you to my wonderful friend Kristin for agreeing to do this give-away with me - and for generously donating one of the pairs of earrings herself. Did you pop on over to her Facebook or etsy site to check out her stuff? (I just realized in my original post about this contest, I gave the INCORRECT link to her etsy shop, so hopefully this time it'll work for you!). Remember - when her Facebook page hits 100 'likes', she's doing a give-away of her own! So if you didn't win here, you still have a chance over there...and you don't have to even write anything out for her - just click the 'like' button (she's nicer than I am!).

Thanks for celebrating 950 posts with me!!
