GIVE-AWAY WINNER!

And the lucky winner is:
I have to admit, I don't know her...
but thanks for playing!
She apparently lives in Dunedin, New Zealand.
(how exciting and exotic)
Here's M with 'the hat.'
And now, let me tell you a little bit more about what Sherry won:
I wanted to include a copy of this book. Two of my VERY favorite things in the world are reading, and writing letters.
I don't know if Sherry already has a copy, or if she's ever read it, so here's where the choosing comes in. I'll send you this book, or if you own it or have already read it, you can have the Barnes and Noble gift card you see in the pile below, instead. ALSO, I've included a very cute picture book. Another of my favorite things is reading stories to children. This one happens to be a good one for the upcoming season of love. To go with it? A new journal (another of my loves--I actually like journaling for my children more than for me), some nice smooth-y pens for writing, and some tres chic notes. (I also had a stand-by 'male' version in case the winner was not of the feminine variety.) The B&N gift card is in there, and last but not least, a cute little wooden sign that reads "Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends." And THAT is what I hope Sherry has done on my blog. This was fun!
And I wish I could have picked EVERY name...
THANK YOU for playing.
we'll have to do this again.

Okay, don't know if you want to open it up to international guests next time. Sorry about the trip to New Zealand, but it was fun to play. Pure excitement around here until the clock struck the magic hour.

HEY! hey you! I left a comment earlier. Where the heck did it go? Jenny are you ashamed of me?

I actually really like the international feel... and guys; I DID say that I wished EVERYONE had won! Let's all be friends. Becky--do you want me to have a private give-away for sisters from NH only? I'll get on that. LL: I must have had my invisible comment key down when you left that first one... um?
OH. And thanks for the postage tip, Christy. Turns out our NZ friend has recently gone stateside! So even better. I love you, all my Best blogging friends!
