Drumroll please....

First, I wrote all your names down on orange strips of paper.

Then, I folded them and put them in my glass pumpkin jar. It is a Halloween giveaway, after all.
Of course, that meant that I no longer had anywhere to keep my candy corn and mellowcreme pumpkins, so I just went ahead and ate them all.

Chloe is very good at drawing things, so I figured she should draw for the winner.

She closed her eyes, and reached her hand in....I could barely stand the anticipation!
Then, she brought out an orange strip of paper, with somebody's name on it! Could it be your name? Whose name is it, Chloe?
It's Holly! Congratulations, Holly!

  11. Congrats, Holly! :)

    It's probably better that Holly won anyway. I'd have to clean off one of my surfaces in order to have a cute place for it. LOL!

  14. That was certainly a noble sacrifice, to take upon yourself the eating of the candy corn and mellowcreme pumpkins. Hey, somebody's gotta do it!

  16. Even though I'm totally sad I didn't win, that was a very cute way to post the exciting news.

    You'll just have to tell us how you made it, so we can make our own.
