And the WINNER is...

First, let me thank everyone that entered my giveaway.  Those that opted for two prizes - one for each blog - far outnumbered those that wanted one 'winner take all'.  So, I have two winners to announce!

The winning entry from this blog came from Rhonda over at Shellbelle's Tiki HutWhen she replied with her snail-mail address, she told me there is a Bath and Body Works just down the street from her home!  How nice... especially since her prize is a $25M gift card from there!  

Oops...  TYPO!  $25 is the limit on her card.  Sorry, Rhonda.

 I sure learned something from the survey on this one!   

I learned that I have two kinds of readers... one type hates making decisions, and the others want it all!  Yes,  when asked what you want to see more of, most of you either said, 'whatever you like' or checked every box on the list!  So, I guess I will continue with a similar mix to what I've been posting on here.


Susan, over at Christian Writer/Reader Connection, was the winner from my writer's blog.  She will receive a $25,000 gift card... whoops!  Another TYPO... a $25.00 gift card from Borders / Waldenbooks.  (Sorry, I couldn't resist having a little more fun.)  She can finally buy that much wanted book that didn't show up under the Christmas tree!

 The survey results from this contest told me you mostly enjoy reading about my journey and random essays, along with book excerpts from my WIP.  But everything on the list was checked at least once, so I'll try to include all those things in this year's posts.  I will keep my focus, however, on those topics you said you enjoy most.

I love giving gifts!  
Perhaps I'll make this an annual event. 

Thanks again to all that participated.

I saw the giveaway and just plumb forgot. I'm happy for the winners, though. It is just too easy to get lost in all the blogs I follow, Lily, and plus I see you almost daily over on Facebook!! :-)

Sorry I completely missed your contest, and congrats to the winners.

I didn't realize you were writing a book. How cool, adult or child? What's your title?

I know we visit a bit on FB, but I popped back in hoping to see what you're up too. I still really prefer blogging over FB, seems more satisfying and more personal to me.

Hi Lily! Long time no blog! I hope everything's ok in your neck of the woods! How's the book coming along?

Hey! It's World Oceans Day this week! Will we be seeing you in the Oceanic Blog-A-Thon this year?
