One World - One Heart Winners!

We've been sitting around all day waiting for the kid to get home.

Well, not really just sitting around.

Bella put on her Policeman's hat and supervised as I carefully printed all the names. She jumped on each piece as it flew out of the printer. Abby was there to assist in the mayhem. Quite the opposite of Bella, Abby held her ground as papers flew.

Yes, you can click on the photos to get a better view of the frivolity.

Dave watched the doors to make sure the place was secure.

And then we proceeded to cut each name. Bella was front and forward, the others spread out like a police line at a protest.

The kid finally made it home. But Bella would have nothing to do with his pulling the first name out. And so, I kid you not, Bella picked Fabulous Finds Studio! We had to literally chase her down to find out who the big winner was. Finally caught her under the table. Congratulations Julie!

Bella finally allowed the kid to pick a name. He pulled non-other than the Quiltmoose! Congratulations Dagmar!!

And, last but not least, as fast as you could say "Dave picked a dally of daisies" Dave pulled out dear Miss Vandroo's name! Congrats to Martha!

Now comes the fun part. Waking up all the faeries to help me with some special items to send to three lovely ladies. Ok, eyes closed, I'm snapping my fingers three times and whispering the following until I hear some scurrying:

Wake up little faeries, there's much to do
Three kind ladies
are waiting for you.

So open your eyes
and stretch those limbs
bring out that faerie dust
and let's begin!

I'm almost afraid to open my eyes. When those little fellows wake up, they're known to be a tad grumpy. They seem to have been asleep for a while since nothing has been been made here for quite a while. Will keep you posted on the magic.

Again, congrats to Julie, Dagmar and Martha. They were pulled out of 133 names. And a big thank you to Lisa for pulling all this together. I truly look forward to visiting so many of the new blogs I found through this wonderful event and making new friends.

Looks like you had a lot of fun. Congratulations to the winners!

Your Valentine is home before mine! I LOVE this post! First of all, anything with Miss Bella is my favorite post! And I thought I was the ONLY person left in the world who still put hats on the cat. Hmm. The police hat is rather jaunty, I think!

Congratulations to all your winners! I was the lucky winner of Dagmar's fabrics and can't wait for them to arrive!

Don't sell yourself short on the cupcakes! They look lovely!

Printing out the names? Hello, why didn't I think of that, instead of handwriting them. Oh, well. Congrats to the lucky winners! xo

I love the story line behind how you went about drawing the names. Really cute picture narration!
Congratulations to the winners!
