Hey Everyone! It's finally that time - time to announce the winners of our 2nd annual Great Start Giveaway! Wow has this month gone by fast. It seems like it was just a few days ago when all this fun started. But now here we are at the end and I know you are dying to see if you won, so I'll do my best to make this short and sweet. :)
First I want to thank all of you who read here daily. It's an honor for me to connect with so many people in such a simple way. And if some of my babblings are helpful, then I really get excited! I also want to say that I wish I had prizes to give all of you. I seriously would if I could work it out. I wanted to last year as well, and I joked about how I'd be bankrupt if I tried. Well last year was nuthin' folks. This year we literally had HUNDREDS of entries. I could barely keep up. And let me tell ya, your guesses were fabulous! Even if you didn't get them all, I could see some real creative wheels turning through your entries. Some of you flat out made me laugh with your intentional off-the-wall guesses. (You know who you are!)
So, per tradition (aka the way I did it last year), I'll announce the Honorable Mentions first.
Honorable Mentions are the folks who guessed the most correct. Unlike last year, (where we had no one guess them all, but a few came close) we had several guess every last one of them. So, in no certain order, here are the honorees...
Mandy F. from OR T.J. F. from GA Jamie H. from SC Erica G. from AR Jennifer A. from MI Misty C. from OH Denise B. from MO April M. from IL Kyle R. from TX
Congrats to these folks for guessing the correct answers for all 7 photos! I'm impressed! If you didn't guess them all, don't feel bad. If I hadn't been the one that took the photos, I guarantee I wouldn't have known what most of them were. They really are hard to figure out sometimes!
Ok, next we'll announce the answers to the mystery photos. He ya go:
Digital Timer/Clock/Numbers/Calculator (Any of those are acceptable.)
Toilet Paper Roll/Paper Towel Roll (Both are acceptable.)
SOS Pad/Brillo Pad/Steel Wool
I really appreciate everyone who gave these an effort. You all did very well!
Ok, now on to the big news. The winners! I do need to take a moment to thank all the wonderful people and companies who donated prizes to this years giveaway. Without them, I'd be handing out stick figure drawings... and while I'm sure you'd all love to have one, I'll bet you like these prizes much better. :) Each of the following winners will be receiving an email from me this week in regards to their prizes.
