It’s the Great Pumpkin Give-Away, Charlie Brown!

Last week, when I decided to do a little blog give-away to celebrate my one-year anniversary of blogging, I thought that I would easily add a random number generator widget and be technologically savvy with my give-away.  Not so much!

Meet my random number generator widget:


The Great Pumpkin did have a little help from me and my side-kick, Mary Catherine…


To make this as fair as possible, I generated my list of entry names in Word Excel, printed, cut apart, folded and dropped into the Great Pumpkin.  (There were 12 of you by the way…very good odds!)



See how technical I got…?

Without further ado, the winner is…



Isn’t she just the cutest random number generator?!!!


Nancy from Acorn Cottage!

Congratulations, Nancy!!!  And if you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Nancy’s blog, please drop by to offer her congratulations and meet this creative soul.  You will love her zest for life, sweet personality, and spicy creativity!  And Nancy, I think that this is cause for celebration, in person, like all these southern and Minnesota bloggers do! 

Thanks to each and everyone of you for your kind comments and entries.  I wish that I had 11 more copies to give away!!!


  1. Congratulations to Nancy! Happy Scrapbooking!

  2. That is so cute... Mary picking the winner. Congratulations on such a successful blog!

  3. Congrats to Nancy.

    Your little Mary Catherine is so adorable. I love the pic of her holding the pumpkin. So cute.

  4. HOLY SNICKEYS!!!! I can't believe it! I never win anything! Did you see that cartwheel I just did?
    Awesome! Of course I would love to claim my gift in person, are you kidding me? We'll have to figure out the particulars, but I would be delighted to meet you in person! Please warn your children ahead of time that a complete stranger is going to want to hug them, but I can't resist those faces! Thanks so much Val! Very sweet of you to do this!


  5. that is a much more fun way of picking someone! :)

  6. Congrats to you and to your winner.

    Look what I missed out on...computers-gotta love em, gotta hate em!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Your kind words are appreciated! As Mother Teresa said, "Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
