And the second batch of winners are….

“You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself.”
 Harvey S. Firestone

{copy & paste is quite possibly the greatest function of a computer!}

Here’s the scoop:Winners need to contact me within the next 5 days by emailing me at khryctee[at], or leaving another comment here – with the correct email to notify them. I’ll need your mailing addies by then or else the beloved prize in question gets shipped off to the runner-up. And, just in case the runner up has a bad case of not-claiming-giftitis, then I will merely redraw a name. Someone, somewhere will want it badly enough -)  If you don’t truly want that day’s prize let me know, or pick someone to pass it on to.

Didn’t Win? Keep trying! Really, there are even more amazing prizes heading your way… and there may even be days where everyone – yes like every single person – who enters who will be a winner. How’s that do for something to look forward to? I thought you’d like it!

Ok, the hard part — and also the kind of fun part — the prize recipients! Doesn’t that sound nicer? We’re all winners, even if the prize eludes us. 

“Some people give time, some money, some their skills and connections, some literally give their life’s blood. But everyone has something to give.”
 Barbara Bush

Oh! In case you were curious; receipents are not-so-scientifically-selected using one of those handy generator thingies found online. Noone has found a way to bribe me yet. Not saying it can’t be done, but ya know — it’s gotta be a realllllllllllllllllllly good offer. An in with the technology gods would be great… felt foods, art supplies I don’t have… the list goes on…

Even though the drawings on these drawings are closed – I still think they are worth a read – especially the comments. Amazing discussion, laughs & communities have been forming. Join In! It’s a wondrous feeling! Start from Day 0 and work your way up!

Chrysti – who needs to get crackin’ on putting today’s giveaway up! – It’s another incredible one. What an amazing, generous community we have – y’all inspire me. Daily.

P.S. I totally forgot when I started this, I am travelling over the holidays … and won’t be able to post daily while there ( hoping to try, but chances are slim) … do you think it’d be best if i put it on hold while gone? Or post as I can while there?  I figured, y’all may be swept away in holiday plans too.
