Tuesday's Winner is Dea. Email me using my email address in my profile with your address.
This is my brilliant random selector. I had this brainstorm as I was waking up that if I gave each comment a number that corresponded to the order in which the comment was left, then I could simply put numbers on slips of paper and pick a number (or 2) and the corresponding commenter would be the winner. This way there are no favorites, it doesn't matter in which order you left your comment and it would be truly random.
It worked. I wrote the numbers on slips, stirred them with my college pliers (left over from 37 years in dentistry), and plucked the two Monday winners from the bowl.
So far today (I am writing this blog on Tuesday) I have 4 comments. I have 2 thoughts I wanted to share with you that have nothing to do with art quilting.
The first is my questioning whether people who give away things really give them out randomly or do they look for a friend or a "cute" comment. I wanted to be very fair and thought the random number bowl was a great idea.
The second thing I wanted to discuss was "advertising" this give away on my 2 favorite yahoo groups. I would have tons of comments from people who wanted the prizes. But then I thought, #1, what are my motives. I kind of like the way my blog works now where people who like to see what I am doing read it and tell their friends and #2, why create a huge pool of comments which will lessen the chance of people who actually do read my blog from winning. So I didn't blanket the internet with ads for my give away.
I have come to "know" so many of you readers and commenters and think of you as friends in a way - my internet art friends. You are the people I want to celebrate my anniversary with. As you might have noticed , I have quite a few "friends" from The Netherlands. Who knows. I might make a trip one day and go on a blog tour of The Netherlands.
Don't forget to leave a comment today whether you have won or not this week. Keep entering all week.
I'll be back tomorrow with something related to art quilts....
