You’re probably suffering a second case of crossed-eyes.
One more quick little side story – just so you can know what a ninny I am sometimes!
Soo, last week I rushed home to make sure I was home in time to close the draw. Yup, for some reason I had it in my head that the giveaway was ending last Friday. =) So I drew the winner at www.random.org and published the post for all to see. Yuppers. I then quickly scanned the original giveaway post to make sure I hadn’t forgotten anything, and saw the date. May 1st! Ha! Oops!
Quickly erased the post but had already emailed the winner! Of course she’s getting a copy of Cookie Craft too – lucky her that even the author of the post didn’t know the right drawing date!
So here’s last week’s post:
Oh my gosh; I had to rush home today to make sure I was home in time to close the draw. However one ‘closes the draw’ on a blog. I’m sure you were all at your computers with baited breath! lol
I have to say, it was so much fun to see the favourite barnyard animal comments! Everyone had their own unique spin on which one and why. I also have to say that I didn’t mean for anyone to choose a favourite cookie of mine.. hee hee… I really just meant a barnyard animal in general. Upon reading my instructions over; they really were a bit ambiguous though, I’ll be more specific next time!
I entered all the comments from the post into the draw at www.random.org, at 7:05 Eastern Standard Time (23:05 UTC) and the winner was comment #73; Emily!! Congrats to you! I’ll be contacting you to send you Valerie Peterson’s book, Cookie Craft.

If you’ve never heard of it, www.random.org is basically a site where you can register your contest so that a completely fair, impartial, neutral, (and did I say impartial? =) third party, draws the winner and posts the results for all to see. All I did was enter the number of comments in, and the number drawn was the comment that won. Yay Emily!
I hope you don’t live in Timbuktu. =)
And now here’s the info. for the second draw on May 1st, 2009:
