and the winners are...
phew-- choosing the winners was quite a venture. i had it worked out in my head that i would just cut and paste the comments into textedit and print them out and number them, so that i wouldn't have to count to 300 or above eleven times (i would have lost count several times and ended up re-counting about one million times). that didn't work, because when i tried to cut & paste, it pasted the photos also, and would have been either a ton of work to cut and paste each one individually, or waste about 60 sheets of paper and a whole lot of ink printing all those pages. i decided to write out a list of all of the names, which even though it may seem silly to write over three hundred names, it worked out well. a handful of folks accidentally posted their comments twice, so to this method ended up making things a bit more fair for everyone, because i did not count the repeated comments. then i broke out my trusty iphone and used a randomizer to choose the eleven lucky W I N N E R S !!!
congratulations to: miss priss/morgan, ashley, claire madden, siobhan, grrfeisty, karen, karen barbé, brooke @ clairemontroad, lover mother, jessica jane, and chuck ! ! !
