The WINNER of the Pirate Coat Giveaway is LINDSAY MADER! When I chose her name, I wasn't even surprised, considering she had over 10 contest entries. Man alive! Lindsay! Anyhow, she will be getting that lovely pirate coat custom fit to her, and in her fabric choice! Now...I DID put a twist on the contest. See... I feel ABSOLUTELY sick to my stomach when picking winners, because I have NEVER won anything in my life, and I hate making other women into "losers" like I am. (Oh, come on! You guys KNOW you aren't losers, but most of you DO know how it feels to be hoping SOOO fervently for something and just KNOWING that THIS TIME you'll win......and then they pick the name of the popular girl that always wins. Dangit!!!)
So, in my overly soft heart, I picked out 6 more winners of consolation prizes. Winners of the $50 Gift Certificates to Artfire!
Anna Nurya Deprey, Jennifer Jackson, Cynthia E. Rodriguez, Karen Szymarek, Carin Boelman, Rhiannon Jones, thank you and congratulations ladies!
I'll be sending all of you emails, so look for them in a few minutes!
In the meanwhile, I DID have a great idea that made me feel LESS sick to my stomach and NOT quite as panic-attacky. I can take the names and the emails of you lovely ladies who entered the contest, and put you into a specific list in the database of my new website, and I can actually send you notes about promotions, clearance sales, and coupons before anyone else gets them. No, I'm not talking about annoying "newsletter" type crap that you sign up for. I got one yesterday from Victoria's Secret where the title read "Hello, Gorgeous! Take a look at our New Spring Selection!" or something patronizing and cruel like that. Please "Vicky", I KNOW that you may THINK you make women feel sexy, but every time I put on one of your bras and then walk past the 15 foot high poster of the 0% body fat, huge chested model that I will never look like, part of me dies! And SERIOUSLY? hOW COULD YOU make apron lingerie, but make it like a freaking mono-kini, which has CUT-OUTs right at love-handle level! I was so excited about the lingerie that looked like aprons, and I almost passed out in the store, and when I tried it on, wanting to pretend to be a super sexy 50's housewife to make my husband breakfast in bed.....well....I was pretty sure that all I would inspire was VOMIT in the bed. Freaking Victoria's Secret......grrr
Oh, my gosh. I need to get back to my company! Um....thank you SOOOO much, you guys. I would like to especially thank those of you who are so patient with me in the rare occasions that there is a problem with the order, and you let me fix it! You ladies are DYNAMITE, and you have a seriously special part in my heart!
