We have a NEW Winner! (COPICS!)

(I meant to post this earlier, but I almost knocked myself out today hitting my head on a concrete counter top...yee-ouch!!) :{

Well, unfortunately for one, (but fortunately for another) it has been a full week since the winner of my Copic giveaway (MY BIGGEST CANDY EVER!) was announced, even after a prompt to contact me by yesterday's date, I've heard nothing.... :( so I had to draw a new name, and we have a new winner! :)

Sorry for deleting my earlier post. I guess I was too excited to spell correctly!Anyway, Melanie, your card is SO amazing! I love how you flip the card open and there's another flower! GENIUS!!!!Thanks for a chance to win some Copics! I don't have any yet! What a great giveaway!

Erin, surprise, surprise YOU won the box of Copics! Please contact me by email no later than Tuesday telling me your snail addy and which BOX you prefer: A, B, C, or D.

I hope the first person who was picked did not have some kind of family emergency or something, BUT, when entering blog candies, it's a good idea to come back and check the candy as soon as you possibly can after it ends to see if you've won, for everyone involved: those who entered, the person who needs to ship the candy, and yourself, it really stinks to miss out on candy (especially a big one like this!) I have a LOT more readers now and am in a position to offer more candies, and have more cool sponsors, but I need your help to stay on top of them. (I still haven't heard back from either of my Paper Temptress winners from last week either! I need these ladies to contact me by Monday or I will have to draw two new winners! Irene, I know you know you won from your comment, but I didn't get a mailing address from you, unless you contacted Patricia directly...? so please let me know! ) There is great stuff at stake, and more stuff to come if I can get everyone's help with these small housekeeping details, so thank you in advance for your cooperation! From now on I will post with every candy not only when a blog candy ends but when I need to hear back from the winner in order to send out the candy, so there is NO confusion!

Have a great night, I'm off to go work on more samples for our Gina K Designs release, sneak peeks starting in just about 48 hours!! And guess what? My set is peeked first this time!! Any guesses? (you'll never guess) ;)


  1. Congrats to Erin!! :)

    Can't wait to see the peeks of the new releases!!

  2. If no one contacts you. Just let me know...I'll send you my info. LOL
    Hope your head starts feeling better.

  3. Looking forward to your sneak peaks. I can't even begin to guess--you always very pleasantly surprise me.

  4. I too can hardly wait to see your new set(s). I would gladly help you out with any unclaimed prizes also.:)

  5. I can't believe the peeks are only 48 hours away!!!!

    I can't wait to see what you've come up with for your new set. ;-)

  6. I sent an email using the email address on your profile of the blog. Or at least I thought I did!
    Sorry you hurt yourself. Be more careful next time we can't afford to lose your blog. LOL

  7. Sorry to hear about you
    'bumpa-the-head"... ouch is right.

    If the winner doesn't step forward, I will do the honorable thing and accept on their behalf... I really don't mind. Don't mention it at all.No need to hesitate. {hee-hee}
    Thank you for being so patient and offering such terrific blog candy -YUM-O

  8. Hi Melanie,

    I hope you're ok... a bump on the head is not good at all... I was so happy to receive in yesterdays mail my first order from Gina K. I just HAD to get your Tshirt cute...even inked it up yesterday! Looking forward to seeing your sneak peeks! Take care!

  9. Contact me! I will write you back. I promise. I would have to be dead to not check your blog daily!
    I can't wait for your surprise.

  10. That bump on the counter sounds like something I would do. I'm glad you're okay!

    And I am in agreement with the other ladies...if you're having trouble with giving things away, I'd be happy to send you my address! New "toys" are always appreciated! :)

  11. I agree with StampinCathy, I am on top of the game, just let us know, we'll help ya keep your business moving smoothly.. Congratulations Erin, what a fun Surprise.

  12. Watch out for those head injuries my friend! I have to say I can relate! I am glad you are ok! I hope your readers don't mind, but my comment today is really a technical question: I am going to be offering my very first blog candy soon. I was wondering, Is it too time consuming on the part of the giver to link on the person's name that enters your candy to try to award the candy to them? You have hundreds of comments and I would only have a handful at first. I realize that as the giver a person should not have to do all the work and that as possible recipients, we should be happy to watch blogs where we enter see if we are winners. I only enter a few candy contests as I only visit a small list of blogs. I know with the anonymous ones our hands are tied but they aren't viable entries anyway. And when give the candy to someone else allows for a greater chance of winning for the other entrants. I am only trying to understand this process as the idea of blog candy (given or received)is so new to me. I know, also, that some blogs ask for you to list your email addy in your entry.. Is there danger in this? My email is IF you have a minute to answer my questions I would be grateful. I appreciate that you usually take the time to respond to your readers! This is what makes your blog so successful! Linda Crowder

  13. Wow, I can't believe someone would not check back. I would love to win those markers and have been stalking your blog ever since. Of course I have seen so much other great stuff since finding your blog I am now stalking your blog for the ideas instead. LOL!

  14. Congrats to the 2 winners !
    And THANK GOD you are OK ! I checked back 2 or 3 times yesterday and wondered why there wasn't that promised extra blog note...NOW I know why ! I'm really 'getting into' this Blog and Card thing, as a direct result of you, Mel ! Please don't abuse the Mentor any more !! I NEED YOU...LOL !
