The First “Christmas in July” Winner is…

Hello, Everyone!

First, I have to say that I have had a BLAST this week getting ready for my first giveaway.

Thanks to all of you who participated!

Here is my very “official” way of keeping track of all the entries…


Each bag represents each Wednesday in July.

Here’s how I did it.  I typed up all the names of all the entries, folded them up, and placed them in the correct bag.

*ALL of my followers’ names were placed in all five of the bags.

*Everyone who put my button on their sidebar has their name in all five of the bags.

*Everyone who left a comment on Wednesday  had their name put in my July 1st giveaway bag.

Then to make sure I did it right, I enlisted some help.


They are very excited to be helping with this!

My oldest son gets to pick out the first winner.  (He’s the birthday boy!)

He shook it up real good.


Pulled out the winner.


And the winner is…..


Congratulations, Sheila!

I will be contacting you this afternoon to work out the details!

Thanks again to ALL who participated.

The good news is, I still have FOUR more weeks of giveaways!

Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
