Winner Announcement... At Last! :-)

   The birds are shining, the sun is singing, it’s a lovely day...!!!

  You know what?

    Scratch that.

           It’s actually evening; the rain (rare as it is here!) is spattering against the window... (I kind of love rain, always have. There’s a word for that, “pluviophile”. Did you know that? And “petrichor” is the after-rain-smell. Isn’t that just a beautiful sounding word?)

 On this soft, rainy evening I find myself alone at my computer, consulting papers with scribblings and diagrams on them, and along with Bilbo I can say with a sigh;
 “I’ve put this off for far too long.”

 Though, I really couldn’t have given it the proper attention any earlier... and right now, I still feel a little exhausted-into-a-stupor, so you must overlook the lack of vim and vigor in this post!!!
(If you happen to notice any vim and vigor lacking, that is, of course.)

 All right!!!
  Down to brass tacks.

Once again,
 “Win'wing... 'win'wing is what b'wings us togev'ew to'w'day...”

 And we shall cut straight to the chase!!!
  I have to admit, if you find this slightly confusing, you are not alone. With so many prizes and therefore so many winners, it can be hard to keep straight.
 (Hence the papers with scribbled diagrams mentioned above! *wink* )

 But, with the help of the handy-dandy random number generator, here are the many winners of celebratory stuff!!!
  Each comment on each blog post in the tour was eligible to win a prize or prize package... and once a winner won, their other comments were eliminated and the next winner generated.

So, for the Blog Tour comments prizes the winners are...:

A prize package of,
Snow Leopard Luggage Tag & S.Leop. slim-line Wallet 
5 snowflake charms

 ...winner is LeAnne Douglas!!!


Hair Jewels (from seller)
  ...winner is Christine!!

Snow Leopard print (from seller)
 ...winner is Kelsey!

Snow Leopard photo download (emailed from seller)
...winner is  Claire B!!

2 Sets of:
6 Snowflake charms
Plus a dagger charm with each of those.
 (These mailed from us.)
  ... the two winners are... madelinejroseSkye!!!

  So... Congratulations, Ladies!!! You all made out like bandits! Wink Get with me soon as possible with your mailing addresses so I can get these things headed your way!

   Thanks to everyone who pitched in to make this happen, and special thanks to the sponsors and the bloggers!!! Wink

    Take care,

P.S. Because I'm crunched for time and don't have the energy to track down every winner here across the vast and frozen landscapes of the interwebs...  Upshot of this sentiment is: winners have to contact me.
 If they don't do so within a reasonable time, their prize falls forfeit.  And I can give it to somebody else, instead! (Who is easier to actually give it to!)

  Take care, and stay dry out there in that rain, fellow travelers!!!

 P.S. What do you think of the doodle my opening line mistake inspired? You see? You people are keeping me up later at night, even when you aren't here!!! *wink*

Yay! A snow leopard. :D Thank you for having this giveaway; I'm so excited I got something! :)
Is this card shipping from the seller, or from you?

Hey Kelsey!
This will be shipping from the seller... :-)
And since I already have your address, you don't have to worry about missing out on it! :-)

Christine Smith said...

Oh my goodness, I won the hair jewels? They're so pretty!! How exciting! :D

I'm sorry it has taken me a couple of days to see this. Life has been crazy around here. I hope I'm not too late.

How do you want me to contact you? On the little contact author thing on the sidebar, or do you have an email address or...? Or, if it's easier, you can contact me at Just let me know!

Congrats to all the other winners!

E. Kaiser Writes said...

Thanks, Christine, we've got an email headed your way!
But yes, you could have included that in the contact us thingie, or what you did was fine too!!! :-)

This was a great post to wake up and find this morning! :) I'm sorry it took me a few days to find it. We had plans for this last weekend so it has been really busy around here. I sent you my address through the contact author thing on the sidebar. :) Thank you again!
