My more statistically-inclined friend has informed me that I have defied the odds. The bloggy giveaway was awesome, both in terms of being able to give something away, interacting with so many other participants, exploring new blogs, and in being a winner. There were so many incredible giveaways going on last week and I entered quite a few of them. I’m now the happy recipient of a credit on PaperBackSwap, from Kacie over at Sense to Save, which I have already used to claim a copy of Ann Hood’s Do Not Go Gentle: My Search for Miracles in a Cynical Time. I’ve been wanting to read that book for sometime, so thank you, Kacie!
Obviously, since I started this post by talking about defying the odds, I won a couple more giveaways. That was statistically unexpected, but very exciting for me. I won a beautiful pair of “Pretty in Pink” earrings from Jennifer at Jezebel’s Jewels. Be sure to check out her blog, and all the pretty designs she has in her Etsy shop, too! Her pieces have a classic, simple design that definitely appeals to my sense of style. I also won a Starbucks gift card from M.C. over at Milk in the Closet. And you know that is going straight to my vanilla bean iced frappucino habit. Be sure to check out her blog. I love what she had to say about You’ve Got Mail and blogging.
And finally, I ended up in a trade with another giveaway host! Laura, over at Knittinchick’s Musings, makes these adorable Baby Uggs. I so admire anyone who can knit a scarf, let alone shoes. No, I don’t have a secret baby, and I’m not pregnant. But I plan to have one in the not-so-distant future, and one of the perks I imagine is dressing them up to be cute, so Baby Uggs it is! I’ll be sending a to-be-determined bag to Laura.
Thanks to everyone–Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer, each giveaway host, and everyone who left wonderful comments–for making the giveaway such a fun experience!
