Ok, before I get to it, let me share something. I had this great idea to record Bella pulling the winning name from the hat (or in our case, the disposable Ziploc food container that all of my neighbors returned to me after finishing off the holiday treats I gave them-it's disposable people, I don't want it back.) I mostly wanted to make my friend Lena happy because while she claims to be overly nice, I find her to be very questioning and suspicious. Anyway, it went terribly wrong. Bella was rubbing her face the whole time like she had just woken up even though she's been up for an hour and a half. Then she kept saying, "I can't find the one I want" and "There's a certain one I want to find". Ok, lets go over how this works again. Anyway, she finally picked the winner, I announced her name and then ended with a long, "Ummmmmmmm". The whole thing is awful.
Ok, now I'll get to it. The winner is Jennifer Hogan, etsy member jehogan! Congratulations! Your new bag will ship out to you tomorrow, only 2-3 days until you can unwrap a nice surprise. Thanks to everyone who supported my bag making gig in the last month and helped provide my family with a nice Christmas. So many of you take the time to send me nice little notes through Etsy and because I'm such a loser about replying, you have no idea how much I appreciate them. So, in 2008 I will take the time to respond to every Etsy convo and make sure my customers know how much I appreciate them. You guys make my sewing gig a lot of fun and I love reading your comments on the blog so keep them coming. And if you know me, you know I like criticism as much as a compliment so if you think a bag looks like ass, tell me so I won't make the same mistake again.
