The Moment We've All Been Waiting For

First let me tell you this was not easy. I didn't have a bowl large enough to fit all the entries, then ended up putting them in this huge box. Hubby was not very willing to draw but told me if I left off his face he would do the honors. Here are a few photos. I lost the picture of the photo of hubby drawing the 2 prizes out of the box. Have no idea where I saved it too. I'm techno-challenged. I hope you forgive me. Hubby really did do all the drawing. Sorry for the poor quality photos.
All the Entries:

Too Many For My Bowl:Big Box Held Them:
The Moment You've Been Waiting For: Drum Roll Please

And Winner #1 Is:

Sally! Happy Anniversary and congratulations on your hits!!! I think you should give it away in TWO bundles, spread the wealth...but then the other part of me says ONE BUNDLE would be cheaper on the postage pocket book. So either way around - it is GREAT CANDY! THANK YOU!

Chrissy Please email me your information.. Also you get to choose if you want #1 or #2 as most people commented that would only be fair. Congratulations!!!

Drumroll Please for Winner #2

Fantastic blog candy. Please enter me for it. Love your wonderful blog too Sally. Think you should have two drawings gives another chance for someone else to win too then. Happy Anniversary too. I dont have a blog. Thanks so much. Phyllis

Phyllis, please email me with your information. Congratulations!!!

And now for the special drawing.

When I was doing my Blog Candy, I thought about having people sign up to be a follower, but then decided it wasn't fair to ask people to do that just because they wanted a chance to win , so I didn't, but as the contest continued I got the nicest surprise. So many people became my followers, not because I asked them too, but because they wanted too, so I have made up an extra little package as my way of saying thank you. I put all my followers into a bowl, had hubby draw the winner, then added them to the general drawing. It means a great deal to me.

And The Winner Is:
