Betty Picks Name Out of Hat !
Today I announce the winner of the Buddha's Hand and .......... A DRAWING FOR A FREE GIFT ! I decided to take my gardening hat (you can see by the sweat band that it's well used) and put all the names in there. Then, believe it or not, Betty picks name out of hat ! You might be wondering how I got Betty to pull the names out of the hat? Betty is a very curious. All I had to do was point out the rolled up names in the hat, she cooperated by trying to get them out of the hat so she could bat them around on the floor for a while.
Your odds are one in ten (10) of winning the drawing for the free gift(s). I put the following list of blogger's names on a piece of paper, crumpled it up, and put it in my garden hat. Ricky was a first time poster here. I discovered Judy's blog because I love her glazes. Gary had a contest on his blog and I thought it would be a good idea too. Jerry has been a long time follower of my blog. I discovered Meredith's blog and then she visited mine. Becky and Amy found my blog because I visited their blog posts on barrel firing. And I know I'm following in Deborah's "Stonepool" footsteps keeping you in suspense here. CJ visited my lavender garden and learned I had a blog. I think Cynthia's blog is the second pottery blog I ever read.
In the first photo you can see, indeed, Betty picks name out of hat ! She has one piece of paper with a name on it under her left paw. Then Betty pulls the name out of the hat and bats it around on the floor for a while. When the paper ball stops rolling she looks at it. While Betty's looking at the paper ball, I open it up and let her see it. As you can see Betty has chosen the winner: CJ of the JollyEwe Knitting Blog.
Congratulations CJ, just send me an email with your mailing address and I will mail you your free gift(s). Then if you'll take some photos when you receive the gift(s) and send them to me, I can post photos of the gift(s) from the drawing for everyone to see.
A big thank you to all who read my blog, especially those making comments. I love hearing and learning from all of you around the blogging world. By the way, Betty said you're all winners. She pulled the rest of the names out of the hat while I was writing this post. Thanks Betty !
