and the winner is...

icitea!

congratulations to the super persistent icitea for winning my giveaway! and a HUGE thanks to everyone who entered, making this my most successful giveaway yet: 66 comments translated into 77 entries. i really appreciated all the support and enjoyed reading what you guys had to say (i always do!). don't feel deflated if you didn't win; there will be more chances to win stuff from my shop in the future, and hopefully i'll be able to get a few more giveaway sponsors soon.

and to all the new followers: it has been great meeting you! i always like discovering new blogs, so thanks for following.

i liked using the random name picker from classtools.net (i heard about it from beautiful bridget, who used it for her most recent giveaway) better than random.org. it's more visual and it mixes up all the names/entries before picking one at random. and it's cute.

anyway, i take milestones pretty seriously, so you can be sure that i'll have another giveaway when i reach 300 followers! i'm also planning on picking someone at random from my facebook fan list to win something from my etsy shop when i reach 100 fans, so please become a fan/"like" my facebook page if you'd like to be included in the raffle (or if you'd like to show your support).

love you guys! more later.
