Well, now that ball season is over for both kids, I have been able to get lots more work done! I have been needing to sort through all the numbers, posts, facebook adds, etc in order to see how many entries came in for the June contest I held. (see the june 1 post for details)…
In all, there were 415 entries. Here is how I broke it down:
1-137 Mailing List–i am including these because they have been with me since I started, basically. I cannot exclude them just because they are not following the new technology, sites, etc!!! I also found it impossible to count the 450+people on Facebook. I have no idea who is there or joined because of the contest. I figure those that wanted to be counted have joined the Facebook group for Princesstomato…where they are counted/entered
138-334 Princesstomato group members on Facebook
335-352 June 1st blog comments (subtracting my own)
353-370 June 1st blog comments counted again. I did to give those who left a comment there an extra entry. I really appreciate the comments. 🙂 It is nice to know people read, etc…so thank you!
371-393 Twitter adds (the ones I could track…)
394-411 Etsy adds
412-416 mentions on blogs and/or mailing lists
THE RANDOM NUMBER CHOSEN by using Random.org is……..352!!!! Looks like this is the last post on the June 1 blog entry, so I will need to look up who that is after I publish this entry. This person will win the $100 credit with princesstomato!…Number 352 is Jennifer Paganelli! http://www.sisboom.com/Wow, no pressure!!! LOL 🙂
I am also selecting an additional winner for a surprise package, just because!!! This number is …. 187. 187 translates into number 49 on the facebook group/list. 49 as of today is….Valerie Walsh. Valerie will receive a surprise gift from my goody closet.
Whew, I feel better having this done! It was harder than I thought it would be to keep track of all the numbers, but I learned something for next time! 🙂
Now for more fun news. I have a new listing up. It can be seen here:
This is part of a group launch. You can see all the other amazing creations by searching STEAMPUNK BOUTIQUE on ebay. You can also win some serious prizes by bidding. Here are the contest details. Contest is for all bids through July 29.
Ok, that’s it for now! Thanks to all who entered! You are ALL the BEST!!!
It has been 365 days of living my life without my sweet dad to call, talk to, or hug. I miss him tons. He was such a great dad and friend. He would want us to live life to the fullest, even today. I am going to finish up a portrait, then get some Valentine cookies and a nice dinner going for when the kiddos get home we can have a special family night. xoxox
My third-grader finally gave up making a robot for what would be the third year in a row for his Valentine’s box. This year he opted for a gumball machine. He went to town and really did this all by himself! I love it. And I also love gumball machines. I have one in my studio, and when anyone gets a RED gumball, they have to give me (or someone)a hug! 🙂
One reason I did not become an architect or interior designer is because I suck at spatial relations. My fourth grade daughter- who- always- has- to- be- different- and- masterpieceful wanted to make a dog in a shoe for hers. We tried to recruit my engineer husband, but he was wimping out on us. So, we dug in and figured this out by looking at her actual tennis shoe for reference:
It is 23″ long:
Here are a couple pics of some of last week’s work:
Oh, and a little catching up on the daily quotes/headings from SIMPLE ABUNDANCE:
Feb 8: You Are an Artist.
Feb 9: A Fresh Canvas Every 24 Hours.
Feb 10: Creating an Authentic Lifestyle for Yourself and Those You Love
Feb 11: Divine Discontent: Learning to Live by Your Own Lights—for this one, it says Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness…Sometimes at that moment a wave of light breaks into our darkness, and it is as thought a voice were saying You are accepted.” Paul Johannes Tillich
So, I suppose all these thoughts do tie together, as they always seem to do. This week’s illustration friday is TIME.
PS:Oh, I should mention that I am glad I am not DOING TIME for what I did on Saturday. To read more, check out my facebook status as of Feb 11 7pmish: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?v=feed&id=628998395#/profile.php?id=628998395&v=feed&viewas=628998395It really is hilarious!
