You guys! When I set out to do the Advent Care Package Giveaway I was hoping for 100 entries. I was completely blown away when over 170 of you entered! Thank you for being so excited right along with me! If I could I would bake you all a batch of cookies and send them your way, but butter and postage is expensive.
I was also really thrilled by all the wonderful men and women who wanted to be a part of the giveaway. The generosity of the artists and small business owners was really amazing. I know I will be using many of these guys when I do my Christmas shopping and I hope you will consider doing the same.

Yay! It's Mary from letlovebesincere! Mary found out when she was having a really rough day and her night was made. She's so fun - I'm so glad she won.
But now I need to confess something. I mailed the package yesterday and today I found the Chai tea still in my van. So Mary, unless you really, really, really was wanting that chai tea I'm just going to keep it. I'll mail you a $5 so you can buy your own if you'd like. Sorry I'm such a doofus!
