Well I decided, since I like old things and the ways of the past, I would hand write everyone's name down on paper and then put them all in my pretty new box I got for my birthday. I shut the lid and shook them all up to mix them well. No computer print outs or computer picks for this give away. We are doing it the old fashioned way of pulling the name out of the hat. Only we are using a box. I closed my eyes and picked a name out. Oh no! I got two that were stuck together. So without peeking (I promise) I dropped one of the names and opened up the the other.
The winner was..........A COTTAGE INDUSTRY! Congratulations! You win. I will mail the package out on Tues since there is no mail tomorrow or Monday due to the holiday.

This was so fun for me to do. I think I'm going to have to search for another reason to have a give away soon. I'm already gathering things up. So keep coming back so you don't miss out.

Don't forget my other give away that I'm having on May 31st. Scroll down to enter that one if you have not already done so.

I also want to thank each and everyone one of you who left me jokes and happy birthday messages. You really made my day and gave me lots of smiles. Thank you so much!

Happy Birthday! I'm slightly older than you, and I also like doing things the old-fashioned way. As handy as computers are, there's just something about the non-electronic world that I prefer! ::Jill

Happy Birthday Joanne!

Thank-you so much for visiting. I appreciate your encouragement. It is so fun to do something different...I used to have a huge garden and sometimes I miss the variety of plants I used to have...maybe that's what made want to do something other than flowers.

Will keep in touch...

Hi Joanne! I sure missed you this past couple of days, pop over and see what I have been up to!!! It has been a busy couple of weeks, and now I am having a bit of time to post and comment today.
Be sure and let me know how precious Gene is doing, I have been praying each day and you have no idea how many times you both cross my mind during my day!

Bless you this week!

Donna Lynn said...

Thank you so much for the update on Gene! I am so thankful to God for each bit of progress he is making, I am rejoicing with you both!

Honey is doing great, she is up and putting weight on her leg, she is sore still, which is to be expected! Her cut on her leg is healing fast, she is a puppy and they are so durable! My hubby is the one who hit her, he felt horrible and was sick to his stomach for two days! She had a very bad habit of running in front of the cars, she is small so you can't see her...well, maybe this will cure her of that! We have tried everything to stop it, so maybe it will turn out to be a blessing in disguise...

Have a beautiful week, give Gene a squeeze for me and tell him to keep up the good work!

Hope all is well.
