Wow, I am blown away by the response to my giveaway -- not only the sheer number of people who came by to visit my blog, but by all of the nice, supportive comments that I received. Thank you all SO much for visiting, taking a look at my work, and taking a moment to say something nice. I know that many people came by just because of the Sew Mama Sew list, but I hope that at least a few of you will continue to come back!
I usually try to respond individually to my comments but, boy, this one got out of control REAL quick. So I apologize that I didn't get to respond to each of you. I expect that I will be spending the next couple of weeks going through my comment list and visiting all of the new-to-me blogs that I've been introduced to via Giveaway Day.
And now for the winners ...
It's really weird how life works out sometimes. I mean, what are the chances that the one person that I gave a shout-out to in my post would be the one to win??! But it happened. The first winner is #5, Anina, who wrote:
Hey, it's not the 3rd over here yet! Love the bags though!
Looks like sneaky Anina took advantage of the time zone difference to get an early jump on Giveaway Day! She's the mastermind behind the Dear Baby Jane blog and also just opened up a new shop, so be sure to go say hello (if you haven't already).
The second winner is actually another blogger that I've come to know over the past few months. #43 is Audrey, a partner-in-crime both in my Craftster swaps and the Tokyo's Triangles group over on Flickr. Audrey said:
THe bags look great! I am a fan of the Swell one my self.;)
Since Audrey made a special request, she'll be receiving the Swell tote bag. Anina (who I know is another Tula Pink fan, so I hope she won't be disappointed) will receive the Flutterby bag.
Congratulations, Anina and Audrey!!
Thanks again to everyone for all of your contagious excitement. Giveaway Day was a lot of fun, and even though I haven't won anything myself : ( yet), I've really enjoyed having the opportunity to give something away that I've made.
Have a wonderful weekend!
