Winners, yay!


My lovely daughter brought me those gorgeous ginger flowers and took me to see Iron Man 2 and dinner and then was my draw-person for the non-high-tech, completely random contest draw yesterday.
I wanted this to be homey, so I typed up each name--some of them thirteen times, but I love you guys! Then I cut the name strips up and mixed them thoroughly in this cottage-box. And the winners are:
Anna Staniszewski
Yat-Yee Chong
Storyqueen (Shelley Moore Thomas)
Anna's name was drawn first so she gets first pick of the gift card, critique or books. Yat-Yee is second and then Shelley. I will email all of you, too. Thanks everyone for entering. I had so much fun reading the haiku and comments.
And now I'm off in a rush to one of my face-to-face critique groups, so I will be back to respond to any comments later. Happy day, all!

Wow, you typed and cut up everyone's names? Color me impressed. I get annoyed having to duplicate fields in the google form. Contests are SO much work. :)

Cynthia Reese said...

Gorgeous flowers ... congrats to the winners!

Yvonne Osborne said...

I'm sorry I missed out on this one. You know I'm partial to haiku and I'm amazed by all that you've done in one year. It seems like I've been following your blog much longer than that.

Anna said...

Wow, I just did a little happy dance when I saw my name! Thank you!!

Hi Angela: Similar tastes, huh?

Thanks Susan, Sherrie and Janet: I love that cottage box. It was perfect for this.

Yat-Yee: Woo-hoo!

Sarahjayne, Donna, Jemi: Thank you. I adore those flowers, I must say.

Shannon: I impressed you??? Good grief, you're contest queen, I swear. But, yeah, that may be the last time I cut up paper. :D

Thanks Cynthia!

Yvonne: I soooo wish you had entered. I would've loved haiku from you. ;)

Anna: Dancing with you!

Thanks Tab!

Shelley: Ha! She's a charm, yes. But you're pretty magical yourself!

Jackee said...

Yay and congrats to those three awesome ladies. Thanks for the chance to win, Pat!

Have fun at critique group. I want one of those face-to-face ones! :o)

Congratulations to the winners! Hope you enjoyed the movie!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Jackee: I love my two groups. Most of the people belong to SCBWI but not all, and we read whatever we are working on from picture books to adult historical fiction or even non-fiction. The important thing is to find people who are committed to writing and improving. And there is basic crit etiquette people should use.

Karen: Thanks. I had a great time!

Liza said...
