Pin It Now! Whoah - sorry if you got e-mailed the first draft. For some reason it posted as I was typing it then deleted itself. Lovely. :(
Anyway, what I was saying is that I struggled with the blog candy because I wanted it to be fair. My last blog candy was a disaster; the winners (I drew five) never appeared to claim the prize. I thought this time awarding candy only to followers would allow me to be able to contact people and avoid my mistake from last time.
Unfortunately, only about half of the entries for the blog candy are actually followers. I clearly stated (several times) that you had to be a follower to enter. I feel bad that so many entered yet cannot win. But, that did make the chances better for those who actually followed the rules!
Oh, two things - I did use random.org to draw numbers. :) And, several people who entered thought I was giving all the candy items in the picture to one person. I tried to state several times that I was giving a lot of little items away. All items are new or used but in good condition, and the used stamps have staining. I figure that just because they are loved does not mean they are not good!
As I stated, I wanted to give "extra credit" to those who were followers first So, the first winner and long time follower is:
Heartwarmers from Vicki!!!!!

THANK YOU to all who entered! I will be running more blog candies in the future now that I have a better system down.
And, thank you for following. :)
