Alrighty then, I printed out all the entries in the comments of the blog post for the Schmuckatelli Co. Giveaway, then trimmed them all into strips, and placed them in a bucket for the drawing.
I did make a short video, but the actual drawing segment involves a failure to focus, and/or operator error, so you'll have to take my word for it that the winners are actually the same as shown on the strips drawn from the bucket.
1st Prize goes to: Michael Davis, Greenville, SC, Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy ~ Confirmed
2nd Prize goes to: Leigh Smith, Wesley Chapel, FL, Napoleon by Andrew Roberts ~ Confirmed
3rd Prize goes to: Donald Waters, Yukon, OK, Fevre Dream by George RR Martin ~ Still waiting
The winners have a week to respond to me at this email: Stormdrane (at) hotmail (dot) com I spelled the address out to limit the web bots harvesting it to spam me more than I already am. Put 'Schmuckatelli Co. Giveaway' in the email subject line to help me find it just in case it gets sent to the spam folder. ;)
If a winner fails to contact me within a week, I'll be keeping all the other entries in the bucket at the ready to draw another winner for that prize.
Thanks again to the Schmuckatelli Co. for providing the cool beads for the giveaway. You can also follow them on Facebook to keep up with what's new and current sales and offers, as well as photos shared of what projects some folks use the skull beads for, like paracord bracelets and lanyards.
And, 'Thank You!', to everyone that took the time to read the blog and enter the giveaway! Much appreciated!
