My 300 Followers/600 Posts Celebration Giveaway WINNER!

The first order of business this morning was to draw a winner in my 300 Followers/600 Posts Celebration Giveaway for this ephemera folder:
For some reason I'd said I was going to do an actual drawing-out-of-a-hat; the experience has made me very much appreciate the Random Number Generator method!
First, I went through all the comments I received as entries and wrote them out by hand onto pieces of scrap paper cut from wasted printer paper; I was careful to enter everyone who told me they were a follower twice for their initial entry.  Then, I wrote the names three to a sheet, and then cut them out...
folded them up, and threw them into a big bowl.  Whew!  Then I mixed them up very, very well...
and chose one winner!  If you can't read my chicken scratch  handwriting, it's Tami Hacker.  I hope you'll go visit Tami -- she is brand new to blogging but is catching on real quickly and I know she'd love some new followers.  Tami is a button lover and crafter I have actually met in real life from the Birdsong event I attended in May.  Congratulations, Tami!

Thank you to everyone who entered; I wish I could have given you all a gift!

At the risk of sounding totally cheesy, I think of your interesting/thoughtful/fun/informative/creative blog posts as "gifts," so you HAVE given each of us a gift! (Okay, now I'm ducking before the super-cheese police find me...even though I meant it!:-))

Can you hear me squealing with delight?

I just turned on my computer after arriving home from an out-of-town trip and was greeted with a surprise notice from Laurie... I won her give away... everyone in my house is already in bed, so I had to scream & do a happy dance quietly, OK just a little quietly.

Laurie you are so SWEET - thank you so much!! I am excited and anxiously await your treasures.
