Eli was here to help me pick a winner this morning.
I got all the entries together and put them in a big green bowl. I made a little video of Eli plucking out a winner, but at the very end when I picked up my camera to shut it off, I got a VERY close-up shot of my face and the inside of my nostrils, and who wants to see that? Ew! How embarrassing. I didn't want to redo the drawing because I'm sure it wouldn't be the same name, so I just took some pictures and they will have to do this time.
You don't really get a chicken dinner.
You get the book!
I made a little video of Eli helping me pick the winner. I printed out all the entry comments on on a piece of paper, cut them into strips of the same approximate size, threw them in a bowl, and mixed them up really well. Weirdly, Sherri was the very first comment the day I posted about the giveaway, but Eli plucked hers right out and dropped it on the floor.
Anywho...Sherri, send me a comment with your mailing address in it. I will NOT publish it. I'll get it in the mail as soon as I get your comment. After all, the post office is within walking distance now and there's never, ever a wait! I love small towns! :)
Thank you ALL for your comments. I think this is the biggest response I've ever gotten on a giveaway with 52 entries. (There were 53, but one was a duplicate.) I wish I had lots of money and could send you all a book! Thank you for reading and commenting when you do. I'll have another giveaway soon. I'd forgotten how fun it is for me too!
Love and a big hug to each of you.
So cheesy! LOL.
