Giveaway winner!

One of the reasons I love doing giveaways is because it makes a lot of the invisible people crawl out of the woodworks to leave a comment. I like comments a lot, but I totally get why people don't do it as much as I would like to. I'm a lousy commenter myself. ;-) So by doing a giveaway all of a sudden you get to see some of your readers pop up as actual live people. I know you're out there, because I see the statistics, but sometimes it's nice to have actual proof, haha.

Anyway, without further ado, let's pick a giveaway winner!

There were a couple of you who didn't want the paper so I had to write the names down to make a list of those who did.

I totally understand by the way if you don't want to win the papers. I often don't respond to giveaways at all, because I have way too much stuff already. Nice of those who commented anyway to let me know and congratulate me for my birthday. It is much appreciated.

Now let's go to and pick a number, shall we?

Number 19 is pipers1mom. Here's what she had to say:

Congratulations! Please mail me privately at c.m.j.winkelman[at] with your snail mail addy and the goodies will come your way. If you do not respond within a week I will draw another winner, but I just know you won't let that happen!

Over here I'm getting ready for a long family week. My oldest sister will arrive in a few hours with her husband, children, daughter in law and granddaughter. And Monday my other sister will arrive with her boyfriend and our cousin and her husband. We will be celebrating my birthday and they will be celebrating an Easter vacation. I look forward to it, even though it means there won't be much time for artsy stuff.

By the way the chocolate workshop was fantastic. Here's what I made:

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter!
