To prove that nothing was rigged, I decided to make a little video of the name drawing (that, and I wanted to figure out how to compress video files in iMovie!). If you don't feel like watching the video then you can scroll down to the bottom of this post cause I also took a photo of the winning name...cause I'm a dork like that.
Please excuse the lack of talking/sound in the video. When I first turned on the camera to get it focused and ready both Brett and the Munchkin were yapping away and were running in and out of the kitchen. While trying to get the camera to focus all of a sudden it was dead quiet. Brett was busy with his mobile and the Munchkin was extremely absorbed with his Hot Wheels toys that I quickly and quietly taped myself picking a name out of the bowl.
Oops! Please also excuse my wrinkled table cloth!! Not unless it's a formal dinner with guests (which I've only done once in my life, and that was eons ago), I find it pointless to iron table cloths. Anyhoo, and in photo format:
Yay Areo!! You're the winner of my etsy shop grand opening prize!! Thank you so much for entering!! I'll be contacting you shortly to get your info so that I can ship off the winnings your way!
Thanks again to everyone who entered! ♥ I'm seriously grateful and honoured that so many people entered. I was a little fearful that only one person would enter, and that person would have been Brett cause he felt sorry for me. So thank you, thank you, thank you! Yay! Giveaways are so much fun, I think I should do one more often!
