~AND THE WINNERS ARE..........

It's time to pick the winners of my little giveaway. I'm sorry it took so long. I was hoping, given enough time, that I could come up with some fun and clever concept on how to decide the winners. But then I remembered how flippin long it took me to build that dorky spinning wheel...and dang if I'm only going to use it one time!


So......it's the Crumpet Strumpet wheel of wonder part II. And with no further ado.....








Spin #2





Spin #3








And for the T-shirt giveaway I put all the names of the people who asked to be in on this one into this lovely dish (hey dish ladies check it out!)




And the T-shirt winner is.............



Please ignore the digusting condition of my fingers....I was staining wood today and got a wee bit messy...that stuff doesn't come off easily!...but I'll be showing you what I was making in a upcoming post.....well that is if it turns out better than my Christmas shubbery project!


If the 4 winners will email me their addresses I'll get the prizes together. Thanks to everyone for playing!

Well, I have to say your fingers look almost as bad as mine, but ya haven't quite made it yet, chick!! :-) I like the way you did the wheel to pick the winners though. I'll have to try that next time I do one. Oooooh smooches to the Krumpet!

Connie

H.K. said...

I love the spinning wheel...I would have loved it better if it picked me! :0)

Heather said...

Yay and congrats to all the winners, but especially Em for getting the t-shirt! I would've loved it if it would've fit me and not been a midriff-baring (or, more accurately, muffin-top-baring) travesty on my bod. :)

Really, though, I want a t-shirt that says "I'm a Crumpet Strumpet" - got any of those around? :D

Michelle said...

I love that wheel.....but it did sound like it was on it's way out. :)

Ginger said...

The videos don't play on my computer, darn it. So I can't tell who won.
Hope you have a great weekend, Nikki. It's snowing here in Utah, again.

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

I love the wheel. Makes me chuckle everytime.

Auds at Barking Mad said...

Congrats to the winners! I think I enjoy your "winners" posts almost as much as your initial contests. Especially if they have the doggies helping out. *lol*

salmagundi said...

Hey, Nikki--- I've posted our dream house journey today. That was fun for me to relive all of those times in previous houses. Thanks for the inspiration. Sally

Happy To Be said...

Oh Poo girl I didn't win again...thats it no more meaty bones for crumpet and his wheel...let him go potty on it now..lift that leg boy!! ha ha!! hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Grand Pooba said...

OMG Nikki! Listen, I'm not THAT dumb. I am at work right now which means they block videos and certain pictures so reading blogs is hit or miss. The only pics I can see on your blog right now are the first wheel picture and the last two where life liberty & the pursuit was drawn from the bowl.

So are you just teasing me, or did I really win? AAaaackkk! I've gotta come back here right after I get home so i can actually enjoy your post in FULL!

I still wish your thumb was covered in chocolate cake batter...

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

Congratulations ladies even though I know you all cheated... LMAO

dana said...

Maybe your readers could explain why I have so FEW readers, and the winner would get to go to Florida with my husband to spend our vacation touring with a Realtor. Any takers?

Morning, Dear Nikkiness! Oh, it's so great to hear your pretty voice and love your Crumpet Stumpet wheel! You're the most creative one! Congratulations to your winner.
