Thank you + Giveaway Winners!!!!




Wow!  I hope that you had as much fun as I did celebrating with giveaways last week!  I loved reading all of your sweet comments!  Thank you soooo much for joining me in a week long celebration of my birthday!  

I'm always floored by the generosity of the Paper Crafting Community and love to do giveaways as a way of, well, giving back to the community♡

Thank you for the help, random.org! 

Let's get to it, shall we?

Day 1:  Reverse Confetti




 Yay Kristina!  Love how you celebrate your birthday!  

Day 2:  Neat & Tangled



Woot Woot Laura!!!!!  I had an awesome birthday week!

Day 3:  The Heart Desires



Yahooooo for D.Ann C!!   I 💚 pineapples!

Day 4:  My Sweet Petunia



Helen!  You're a winner!!!

Day 5:  Hero Arts



Celeste, you won the Hero Arts shopping spree!

I'll be reaching out to the winners with prize information♡

IF you're still with me, can we chat about something?


I truly believe that a majority of the people that are no-reply bloggers, aren't aware that they are.  I realize that some people, for privacy reasons, do not like to have their email revealed when leaving comments.  I totally understand that...but if you're leaving comments for a giveaway post, it makes it really difficult to reach out to you as the winner.  

This is what it looks like when I receive a comment from a No-Reply blogger:


If this person was a winner of a giveaway, there would be no way for me to contact them.  Yes, I could click on their hyperlinked name which pops me to their Blogger Profile.  For example sake, I'll tell you that their email was not listed in their profile so I then clicked onto her blog link and any guesses?  Their email was no where to be found on their blog.

You might think, what's the big deal?  Well, I know that there have been many giveaways that my bloggie friends have had to redraw a new name because the original winner never claimed their prize.  You might be super organized and have all the giveaways written down and know when to pop back to a blog for the winner reveal...You're a super star.  Why not just make it easier and check your setting or leave your email address when you comment.  Why am I bringing this up?  Well, I'm part of a fairly large quarterly Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I know that this is a huge issue.  I'm trying to be proactive for the Fall hop.

Please read THIS to find out what your setting are and how to fix things.

💚💚💚
