Today is the day!

Hi Blog Friends,

Today is the day to announce the winner of my Surprise Giveaway!

I first want to say a BIG THANK YOU from the bottom of my heartRed heart for all your comments and birthday wishes. I love sharing my creativity and life happenings with all of you.

Today I turn 43! And I’m loving it!

Kids 002

Here’s a picture of me on the right with my little sister Julie and little brother Tom, back in 1975.  My parents weren’t much on taking a lot of pictures of us as kids and I only have a few that survived thru the years, but the one above is is my favorite.

And here’s a picture of me in 2010. Still have the round face and long hair.

Oh, I’m suppose to be announcing the winner of my giveaway.

I had 60 entries, the most I’ve had to date! Thank you all for joining in on the fun. Of the 60 entries, several of you took advantage of the extra entries and I added them to your chances. So after tallying them all up, I had 118 chances in this giveaway.

I then used Random.org to pick the lucky winner!

And that winner is…………. drum roll………..

Lucky 11!

Lecia from Farmhouse Prims is my lucky winner and you will never believe this but Lecia is a neighbor, living only miles down the street from me! Lecia, I will have to hand deliver this surprise package to you!  We have not met, but had planned to get together for lunch sometime. I guess it’s fate that we shall meet. If you have not visited Lecia’s blog, stop on over and say hi. She makes awesome bonnets and candle mats!

Congrats Lecia, I’ll email you to set up getting together.

Thank you all for sharing in my birthday surprise and I’m sure Lecia will share pictures of her goodies once she receives them.

Have a great day!

Prim Blessings, Jean
