I apologize for having you drop in yesterday for the drawing and not being able to get here myself. I also apologize for not being in a positiion where I was able to leave you a message or post letting you know the drawing would have to be delayed. I pride myself on being dependabe and although it was unavoidable, I hate this happened. We had somewhat of an emergency scare but, fortunately, all turned out well. I don't want to bore you with details or put a damper on your bright day, so I'll get right to the drawing instead -- you've patiently waited long enough.
To explain the drawing, I took the comments from all three (3) blog candy posts and combined them: i.e. blog candy package post #1 = 29 comments generating numbers 1 to 29; package post #2 = 17 comments generating numbers 30 to 46; and package #3 post = 21 comments generating numbers 47 to 67. This made up the total of 67 comments. The number of each comment corresponds to the person who left the comment.
The number selected by Random.org is:
Number 18 makes the winner of the blog candy rak Laurie, aka "Besthobbyeva", from Serenity Scrappers Blogspot. Laurie was the 18th commentor.
Congratulations, Laurie!!! You have until Monday, May 16 to provide me information where to send your package to. You can email me that info to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If I do not hear from you by then, you will forfeit your rak (random act of kindness), and another drawing will be held.
Hopefully, I'll be back to visiting and posting on a regular basis very soon. I am really missing you all!!! We are working at getting help /assistance because I am just about at my wits end. I'm missing MY LIFE; my home, my crafts, my friends, my hubby, Buster, and all the things that make up who I am and what I enjoy. The hubby is beginning to get a bit impatient too -- lol! He's not irritated about my helping but because he's concerned about me physically and upset because as he puts it "no one else is trying to make time to help". Of course this is not necessarily true, but I can't tell him that! Although I am okay, I really am wearing down -- I do feel it and it shows, so I can't blame him for being overly concerned -- something is going to have to give very soon! Anyway, I did say I didn't want to bore you, right? I've so much appreciated your patience, concerns and comments; just please pray for me and bare with me just a bit longer, and I'll be back with you sooner that you can blink!
I thank you all for participating in this drawing, and I'll be back with another package soon which will be open to everyone as I'd promised. I appreciate each and every one of you! Please look out for that announcement.
I'll be back; I'll be seeing you!
