Well, we had 318 entries in our little give away, which is about 10 times more than I ever thought we would get! I really wacked my little brain on what we could to do to be fair in picking one person, just one. With so many entries, we knew alot of folks are going to be disappointed.
I personally read every comment and was really touched that so many poeple tried so hard to impress me (and you did!) Some were funny, some were really touching some were scary (GIVE TO ME, IF U EVER WANT TO SEE YOUR DOG AGAIN). Ok, I made that one up….
But we really had a great laugh at alot of the enteries and it kind of breaks my heart that I can't afford to give everone the set.
So we had to pick one. And we did.
It wasn't the longest comment, nor the funniest, the most clever or even the most compelling. It was the comment that I felt most symbolized what I like about crafters. They are just nice people.
Here's the winning comment:
Well, although the chance to win is a lot more remote I hope the number of entries makes you super-happy. Thanks for the opportunity to win your product though! Hx
Sure, HazeyJ wanted to win, everyone did. But the fact that she wanted me, someone she never met, who has never done anything for her, in anyway, to be happy, showed me that her entry was alot more than just "jumping" on the bandwagon to get me lots of comments. She wanted me to be super-happy. That is really sweet. I liked that. I liked that because I think it is what this offer was really all about. Sure, I want more customers, who doesn't? But I really wanted to see if anyone was listening. Am I typing in a vacumm? Does anyone else like my long rants about Glitter? Does anyone really care?
Well, thanks to hazeyj and the hundreds of other folks who took the time to read the blog and send in a comment, I know the answer. Yep, poeple are listening, and they seem to care.
For everyone who did not win, you still made my day (and the glitter dog's day as well). Your reward might not be a set of our Glitters, but rather helping to rev up the old editor (me) to do more, more blog posts, more give aways, more new products and tons of other fun Glittery treats that we all can share!
