Winner of the Half a Million Drawing! :)

It’s that time… the time we’ve been waiting all week for… the time I bet you thought I’d forgotten to post about, didn’t you, lol? 😉

So sorry it’s taken me all day (and evening) to post the winner of the drawing of our little comment contest for the 2 Cool 4 Stix Tote.  I’ve been literally running all day long and only had the chance to sit down to take care of it just now.  I hope you haven’t been pulling your hair out with anticipation.  hahaha… no, I know I’m not quite that exciting, lol!

But I will point out to you the winning tote that was hiding in the previous picture.  It’s really quite a cutie.  I love it’s cheery nature and spunky style.   Unfortunately you won’t be able to see it very well, as it’s kind of buried in there, lol.

Here… I’ll point it out for you…

Was that obvious enough for you?  I think I’m feeling just a bit silly tonight, lol!  It must be from trying to finish putting up the holiday decorations while there are two eight-month-old kitties underfoot, eating getting into everything in sight! 😛  It’ll be a minor Christmas miracle if we make it through the holidays with our tree still intact and all the presents unwrapped only when it’s the proper time to do so.  Oh, but we do so love those little guys!  🙂

Oh, yes!  I have a winner to announce, don’t I?

Alright… let’s get to it then, with not another delay, shall we?

Drum rollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll….

The winner is number 21!

Now see?  Wasn’t that worth the wait?  What?  You don’t know who the lucky number 21 actually IS???  oh.


It’s none other than…..

Woohoo!  Congratulations, Beth! 🙂

I have to say I so enjoyed reading everybody’s comments over the last week!  You all brightened my days with your little tidbits of fun, inspiration and some of your favorite things.  Beth had an especially great idea that I just had to mention here in this post, since she’s the Princess For Today…

Not only did she guess the right winning bag (!), she also brought up an awesomely-terrific loomy idea:

“Well I just finished my three Christmas trees. I have a very nice skirt for my big tree but none for my two smaller trees. Thinking I could make some on my yellow KK round loom using your round flat circle pattern (face scrubby) pattern, only super sized and not connected. I think this would make an open disk? This will probably be a winter project for next year. Should be interesting!”

Yes, you would definitely end up with an open disc, exactly the right shape for a tree skirt! I just think that’s a dynamite idea, Beth…don’t you all? 🙂  It would be so easy to do too…just follow the Scrubby-O pattern, but incorporate more pegs.  I can imagine so many festive pinwheel designed tree skirts for next year!  We all better get started in January, so we make sure to have them done well before we have to worry about starting to dive into our actually holiday loom knitting gift list for 2012. 😉

Thank you all so much for playing along with me and for being a super valuable part of that half a million!  I get just a little teary-eyed & tipsy thinking about it and how much I appreciate you all.  It’s been an amazing last 4 1/2 years with you! 😀

…and once again, HUGE Congratulations, Beth!  Remember to send your mailing address to me at  Thanks a bunch!
