Actually we have 3 winners. In the frenzy of name picking, I decided to pick one extra name........I couldn't help it. It was like Las Vegas here this morning with all the excitement (well.....without the gambling....drinking....smoking... tacky clothing...or bad lounge singing. Other than that, it was exactly like like sin city) The boys had a lot of fun picking the names. However, there were some glitches. Such as Carlos wanted to pull out a boys name. Then he wanted to know where his name was. And then he wanted to give away one of his Lego sets as a prize. After some discussion regarding Legos not being included in the prize packet, we were finally able to start the drawing.
Now, I have to say, the child who went through the complicated training program did not follow the rules very well. He was under the false impression that he was to pick up all the slips of paper that he could on the first pick. Then he wouldn't put them back in the bowl.
He then got extremely confused and thought he was supposed to pick "blocks out of the box" instead of "names out of the bowl." I'm sorry to say he was demoted and then subsequently fired after throwing the slips all over the living room floor. It was an unfortunate incident.
However the drawing continued with my back up name picker...Carlos. He did a fine job and will probably be hired on permanently.
So here they are..................
Pam Aries won the first pair of earrings and Valentine Hearts!!!!!!
Christiane Wilson-Grove won the second pair of earrings
And Tina won a gift to be determined.....but I think it will be another pair of earrings.
There was then much dancing and singing over the winners who were picked. The dancing is actually still continuing as I type. Both want to know when they can do it again. I told them I would have to contact the temporary agency where I hired them and I may or may not be in touch. I will, however, be in touch with the winners to get their snail mail from them to send them their gifts.
All in all....THIS WAS A BLAST! I am so happy to have "met" so many wonderful blogger and artists. It has been so inspiring and heartwarming to see all the sharing going on. I am very excited to continue visiting all the other blogs that I have discovered. And I hope you all will continue to visit my little space here in blogland.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE!!!!!
