This is a dual purpose post this morning. First and foremost, it’s time to announce the winners of my Mighty 100 celebration giveaway. I really appreciate everybody who took the time to comment and leave their thanks. It was hard to let the random number generator arbitrarily pick the lucky two, but with two clicks of the mouse it was done. Here are winners:

The $25 Amazon Gift card for one of the original 100 is awarded to Gina at A Muse in my Pocket.

The $15 Barnes & Noble gift card for any entrant is awarded to Falen at Falen Formulates Fiction.

If the winners will send their e-mail address to, I’ll get those to you right away.
My second piece of business this morning involves a different type of award. I received another blog award last week (same award from two different people - YAY me), and since I’m already handing out smiles, how about a couple more?

This was bestowed upon me from Catherine at Winged Writer and Krista Lynn Jensen. It’s the Over The Top award, and even though it depicts a shapely woman in a apron, I’ll still proudly display it on my blog.

That’s enough fun for now. Everybody back to work. :)


  1. I enjoyed seeing yourself in the mirror in six years. Clever!

  2. You are too funny, I am always skeptical about putting my name out there, even though I have a facebook and most surely I have someone stalking me as I write this. But JUST FOR YOU..its Jade! :) Thanks for the award, you strike my fancy as well!

  3. Congrats to the winners of your contest and to you on your award! Big hugs all around. :-)
