Drum Roll, Please!!!!!!

I am honored that so many of you threw your names into the hat for my little giveaway! I would have been thrilled to have 50 people enter. Instead there were 341 entries from nearly 250 people!

You guys are the BEST! You know how to make a girl feel all giddy!

So anyway, today I thought we'd talk a little about the best type of mulch to use when you're planting hydrangeas on the southern side of your house.

I'M KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess you want to know the winner, huh? OK. OK.


I put all of the entries in an Excel spreadsheet. Then I randomly sorted all of the entries.


Then I used that random number generator thingy to pick a winner. This was truly a "random" process. Like so many other things in my life. :-)

Random Integer Generator
Here are your random numbers:
96
Timestamp: 2008-09-16 02:16:01 UTC


And on my little spreadsheet number 96 belongs to Valarie Lea From Tennessee Now From Alabama. So Valarie, I'll be contacting you (or you can contact me) and we can chat about how you might like to use this little stool and I'll get to work on it for you. I can't wait to hear what you might like!



Once it's all finished, I'll share the rehab with all of you wonderful readers. Thank you for playing along and I will definitely do this again. It's been so much fun!

Congrats Valarie!

I guess I'll have to find my own cute little stool & do it myself (hehe).
Thanks, Kimba.

Leila said...

Oh, boo. Have fun, Valerie!
Kimba, what do you think of my rehab of a truly atrocious bedside table? I would be honored if you took a peek at it!
And I know you will do wonders with that stool! I'm so happy to have found a fellow furniture re-habber!

Crud! I was all ready to win. Ready to match it up with my daughter's green and purple bedroom. I'm sure you'll be ready to do another contest next week, right? :-)

Julie said...

I just wanted you to know that I would have entered, but since I live in Hungary I didn't want you to have to send it to me... :)

I did a fun project yesterday that I thought you would like... and after I did my painting, I thought of you..."I should have used spray paint." I will next time!

Valarie said...

Can't wait too see what she requests, and what you create. I didn't enter this one cause I figured one wouldn't want to send this super cute little stool all the way to Utah. I figure I'll just see what you do and copy! :)
