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!


  1. Happy belated birthday and Happy Easter! Goodness, I miss a few posts and it turns out one was a big one - your birthday! I don't mind missing the drawing for papers as yes, I have too much stuff already! More than I can use in my lifetime. I am hoping my granddaughters might like some of my stuff later.

    1. Thanks Timaree, I currently have one grand niece who seems to be just like me when it comes to artsy stuff, so maybe one day I will please her with my 'leftovers'. :-)

  2. Happy Belated Birthday, and have a wonderful celebration. That chocolate looks real yummy. I'll bet they will disappear fast. Have a wonderful Easter too......Linda E.

    1. Thank you! I shared most of the chocolate with my coworkers and yes it is absolutely delicious!


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
