January Giveaway Winner- Congrats Gene!

WOW!  I am absolutely overwhelmed!  I wrote when I posted this giveaway that I was celebrating the fact that I had 100 followers.  In the month since then, I picked up an additional 78 followers (last time I looked).  SO... this is to celebrate the fact that all 178 of you (and probably a few more) stop by once in a while to check out what I'm rambling on about.  I'm honored.

For giveaways, I used to just pick a name out of a hat, or ask my husband to "pick a number", but things got a little complicated this month!  I made the leap to a random number generator, and the lucky number belongs to Gene Black from Alabama.  Gene's blog is delightful- his love of art is evident.

I also want to apologize- I try hard to reply to each of you who post- even if it's just asking to be entered in a giveaway.  I love emailing fellow bloggers and I appreciate when you take the time to comment.  But this month, things got WAY out of control!  I have been very busy, and I had such a huge response to the giveaway that I just have to tell you that you're all great- I entered all who asked to be entered- and I hope you keep reading.  I have to just say farewell to last month and start answering new posts from this point on.  Whew!  That'll teach ME to post a great giveaway and turn my back for 2 days!

Still on the subject of replies, if you're a "no reply" blog poster- I can't reply.  If you use a work email or just want to keep your in-box clean- I certainly understand.  Do consider a separate email address (like g-mail, yahoo,) or one of the other free email addresses you can get.  Then, whenever you sign up for newsletters, or freebies or post on blogs- you can use that "junk mail" address and just check it when you feel like it.

So- congrats, again, Gene- you'll be getting an email from me and I'll soon have your goodies on their way to Alabama!

Be looking for the February Giveaway sometime this week.
