I promised I would draw my 'giveaway' (well, donation inspired giveaway) today. Thank you to those who entered, I appreciate you getting behind the effort.
I took the least labour intensive (and probably least fun method!) to choose the winner and headed over to .
I deleted comments that weren't entries and plugged the numbers in and Celeste's number came up as the winner.
Celeste is a 'real life' friend of mine, who I don't see half as often as I would like to. We went out for dinner a couple of weeks ago and mentioned something about my blog and she said 'I don't get blogs' or something like that. So I showed her my blog- and the most recent post was the giveaway- so I bullied encouraged her to enter. Celeste has lived in Japan at different times in her life so I am sure she has a greater understanding of  this tragedy than I do.

Anyway, Celeste has a girl who would like a new dress but she is much smaller than the dress I am offering (I changed the rules during the week and said I would make a dress in the size that the winner chooses)- that means that the original give-away dress was still available. 
What to do? A re-draw, how fun, two winners. Using the same (boring but efficient) method the next winner is Mary
So Mary, this is off to live at your house
and Celeste, something else will be made for your girl to wear and twirl in this Autumn.

And if you are looking for another reason to inspire your donating head over to Nikki's place


  1. Congratulations lucky winners! (and congratulations lucky daughters of lucky winners)...
