I've seen lots of giveaways and contests etc and I know a lot of people assign numbers and use a randomizer....I did it the old fasioned way. I printed the comments, cut them out (removing any duplicates) and then put them in my tumbler (hows that for fitting?) and shook it up REAL good, and then covered the top with one hand whilst I reached in with the other....

annnnnnnd, drew a slip of paper..........

annnnnnnnnnnnnnd, we have a winner.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd - you wanna know who it is right?

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd, I'm agonna tell you.

OK, enough already.

The winner is NinaGibsonDesigns! YAY ! ! !

Nina - I need you to email me your choice of 'prize'.

Either a ring - if so, give me your ring size and your snail mail addy


the MOO cards - and we;ll work through details.
