First, thank you for entering. I enjoyed reading every comment. Some made me smile while others made me tear up a little, but I appreciate every single one. A special thanks to those who stopped by on facebook to enter.
When you support my little business in whatever way you do—helping spread the word or making a purchase—you are absolutely helping put food on our family's table and giving us the opportunity to be a blessing to the organizations that we support with our tithe. Words cannot express my gratitude!
You know what can express my gratitude though? Multiple winners and a little something for everyone! All winners were selected at random. I decided to pick two comments from the blog and two from my facebook page. Read to the end to see what everyone else wins!
So, let's get started: The winners from the blog comments were #3 and #12, and both were tearjerkers:
- Traci Sumner—The couples' rosary is my absolute favorite—might convince my husband to pray the rosary with us. I'm so glad that I've found you, because we seem very similar, even though you are much more brave than I. I haven't had the courage to yet right about my twins that we lost May 2010. So, my Nicholas and Nathaniel are in heaven with your Jude. :)
- Ellen—I love your rosaries. I have been praying one every day since my mother went into a nursing home and am comforted more than I can say. I like the birthstone ones, mostly because they have round beads. I find it easier to pray with round beads (and I have no idea why—just a quirk I guess).
- Mariel Roersma—Your rosaries are all beautiful, and I love praying the Rosary, espeically for other's who really need prayer. I would love either a Sapphire one, or a purple one, because purple is my favorite color. Saw the link to your blog on kissingtheleper.com.
- Ashley & Farrell—Couples rosary!
Congratulations to all! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can exchange info.
It was my hope to announce the opening of our new website as we announced the winners of tonight's giveaways. Unfortunately, Joseph has become busy with his regular job and not able to finish in time. As he likes to say—soon enough if done right.
When the new website is finished, I will announce it here and on facebook. In the meantime, everyone who entered the giveaway wins a gift certificate to be used at the new online shop! Just email me before February 3 telling me that you entered, and I will send you a gift certificate code valued between $10-$25. It is transferable so you can give it as a gift if you'd like. The value will be selected at random and be valid for use until June 30, 2012.
