And The Winners Are ...

Ladies, ladies, ladies!!! My heavens, this has been a whirlwind-week! I received exactly 645 entries for the three giveaways. Each entry (or comment) comes into my email box. That means, I have a bazigazimillion emails I had to sort through! My head is aching.

Anyway, just so you know that this drawing was on the "up-'n-up" ... here's what I did to get the winners. First, I separated all the emails into three folders, one for each giveaway. Then, I copied the names into an Excel spreadsheet, in the specific order they were received. Then I went to Random.org, entered the necessary info, and voila ... winners. Randomly selected by one very powerful random integer generating tool... oh, so, so, SO up my alley. Then (yes, there is more), I did a quick search for the numbers that were selected (per giveaway) and got the names of the three lovely winners. Finally ... I emailed them and notified them of their winning status. So fun!!! I feel a bit BobBarker-ish!

So, I'm sure you're chomping at the bit to find out who the winners are... unless you've skipped through all my technical mumbojumbo to read them already. Here they are ...

Drum roll, please ...

Winner of Giveaway # 1, The Joy Bracelet, is... PJ!! Yup. Just PJ.
Congratulations, PJ! I hope you wear your bracelet with great joy!

Winner of Giveaway # 2, The Tommy Hilfiger Purse and Surprise Goodies, is... Momrn2!! She lives at My Quiet Corner. Go visit her ... you'll love her!!!
Congratulations, Momrn2! I hope you enjoy the purse and all of the fine little goodies you'll find tucked inside!

Winner of Giveaway # 3, The Overflowing Bracelet, is... Tina!!
Congratulations, Tina! I hope you enjoy your bracelet immensely!

All winners have been contacted by me, via email and their prizes will be mailed out next week via Priority Mail.

Thank you all for participating! I wish ... oh, how I wish ... I could give each and every one of you a little something ... but a bazigazimillion is just a wee bit too steep for me!

Again ... Congratulations to the winners!

Whew! I'm pooped! I'm off to the beach now. See y'all on Monday, with a great, GREAT post!

Congrats to the winners! I am going to have to check out Random.org -- the thought of printing out and cutting apart all those names to draw one sounds daunting.
