51 Prizes....Who Are the Winners?!?!

You read that right. The total number of prizes from yesterday's blog party is 51!! 35 party guests = 35 CD's, then 8 $5 gift cards and 3 $20 gift cards and 5 treat packages.

That's 51 ** I love it!

How to get your CD: I've personally burned a CD for each of you. It contains 12 fun Christmas songs ... a cast of pop stars from my hey day in the 80's. Just e mail me your address and I'll pop it in the mail to you straight away. (yes, even you across the pond Yunaleska!). Hope it brings a smile to your face.

The other winners were determined using Random.org. I wish I could give everyone an additional prize, but I just let the numbers fall where the cosmos wanted them and they are:

8 Barnes and Noble $5 gift cards: Jackee, Karen, Paige, Tamika, Paul Greci, Scott, Lady Glamis and Wendy

3 $20 Amazon.com gift cards: Cindy, Crystal, Lynette

5 treat packages: Stephanie McGee, Kristen Torres-Toro, Tina Lee, Amy and Joyce



Congratulations to all the prize winners. Please e mail me your address at tesshilmo(at)comcast(dot)net and I'll get them out to you pronto. Hey - I don't keep addresses from past blog contests so if you have won a prize in the past, I don't have your address. Please send it again.

I will do my best to keep it all straight, but if you don't hear from me then feel free to let me know. Also, I'm hoping to have this all wrapped up this week so I can move on to Christmas cards and such for my family. So, don't delay!

final disclaimer: If anyone does not send me their info in the next week to two, you forfeit your prize. I wish I had time to track you down and send multiple requests, but with 51 prizes, it isn't really feasible. I want to give you your prizes ... so please follow these rules. I know you understand :D

thanks for joining me in the celebration, writerly friends. It was fun!
