172 entires, 172 individual slips of paper.
Who can resist the prospect of free beads!
Brinn and I and folded all the entries, mixed them really well and put them in a big bowl.
I wanted to do a short video of Brinn picking the winner. She wouldn’t have it! I even tried a little bribe of some new stickers – no luck. “No, just pictures today Mommy.” She was really excited to pick a winner. She even asked, “Mama – is my name in here?” “No Brinn. We have plenty of beads.” (Hmmm, I can’t believe I said that out loud). She was still excited to pick a name even when she found out her name was not in the bowl! That’s a good sign.
The rain started so we had to sit on the front porch. “Dig deep in the bowl!”
“Here it is! Who won?!”
Congratulations Bobbie Palmer!
Please contact me so I can mail you a beautiful package of Preciosa Czech glass beads!
