After numbering and cutting up 67 little pieces of paper, I dumped them into Pace’s princess basket and let her close her eyes and draw a number. And the winner is…Lucky number 13–MEGAN from Enterprise!! She is an awesome photographer, and from what I can tell, she has one little girl named Layla that will be receiving a surprise from us 🙂 Thank y’all for playing!

Just so you know, I AM thinking about selling these on Etsy–for those of you who don’t have time to learn a new craft/don’t want to learn right now 🙂 Whenever I get the account set up (hopefully in the next couple of days) I will do another give-away to celebrate. If any of you have any advice (like don’t do Etsy, I tried it and it was a nightmare), then let me know. See you soon 🙂

    I am in heaps of tears reading this for you. Oh, How I wish her back for you and for me. I am blessed to have gotten to do some of those boring things with her at times when we would have our work days. I miss her and want her back too ! I am hurting for you.
