Winner!

Today is the big day - the announcement of my first official give-away winner. Whee! First, I'd like to thank everyone who entered by leaving a comment. Nice to see so many new faces here and I wish I could give all of you a prize. But, there can be only one winner ... and its time to commence with the festivities.

In order to keep things fair, I've removed both of my comments from the thread and removed Vintage Kitten's as well. Sorry Kitten! She exempted herself from the drawing because she's in the UK. That left us with a total of twenty comments. Initially I thought I'd print out the comments, cut them up, place them in a hat and draw one out ... but that sounds like a lot of work. And risky work at that ... I could incur a paper cut or, worse, chip a nail. Horrors!

So, off I sped to Random.org to use their nifty True Random Number Generator. I entered the "Minimum Number" as 1 and the "Maximum Number" as 20, clicked the button and ...

... we have a winner! Comment number 7, which belongs to Jeanie:

Jeanie said: "Count me in on the granola love!

I'm having a hard time deciding which I'd prefer...the version Tracy suggested, or the one by Words-cubed!

Thanks for the link, Diva."

Congratulations, Jeanie! I'm not sure you'll be able to recreate the granola of Words Words Words' dreams ... but I'm certain you'll mix up something equally delicious. I hope you enjoy this little treat! I will email you the gift certificate today, so check your InBox and let me know how you like the granola when it arrives.

Again, thanks to all of you for participating. This was great fun for me and it will not be my last give-away. Stay tuned and have a delicious weekend.

Bon appetit!

Who knew there was a random number generator? I'm such a loser! I cut up all my comments and drew my winner from a bowl. You've taught me so much!

I'm not going to miss your next giveaway! Congratulations to Jeanie! Maybe your next prize will be your 'Diva' Biscotti? 8-)

The Diva on a Diet said...

Rest assured, this will not be my last give-away. The next one might well be chocolate, or the biscotti, or ... who knows? Stay tuned and thanks to all for playing along!

I'm out of town for the day, but will respond to all when I return. Today's post will feature delicious links to the Eating Your Words Challenge and the Souper Sundays recap. Have a beautiful day, everyone!
