Prize Draw Announcement

When I launched my prize draw last week, I had no idea that so many would enter it.  I have been so taken aback by the outpouring of good feeling towards Lives Less Ordinary, and it makes me so happy to know that, for many of you, it provides a splash of positivity into your daily routine.

So, on to the prize draw, which I’ve recorded as a video clip.  Watch it to see who wins!

OK, so just to make that clear, the winners are:

  1. Megan
  2. Captain Stardust
  3. Penelope Anne

My commiserations to all those who entered and didn’t win.  I only wish I could send you all a bundle of goodies!  However, this competition has been such a success, that I may well do another at some point in the future.  Until then, I hope you all continue to leave comments and engage with the wonderful community being fostered here. Most of all, however, I hope that you keep enjoying what you find at Lives Less Ordinary.

    Amy, great job on the video! The picture and audio were really clear. Ah, yet another medium for which you exhibit talent! 🙂 Congratulations to all the winners!


  2. Joanna Young replied:

    That’s so cool Amy!

    I wonder if you’ll be able to do a clip of you parcelling up the goodies – I think it’ll be a challenge to your origami skills to get them all into one parcel!

    Ugh! I’m CRUSHED! I guess I wasn’t vibing “pick me!!” hard enough!

    This was fun – and the video was a great way to draw the names. Keep at it, Amy – you’re a bright spot!

  4. Megan replied:

    I won??

    I won!!

    How excited am I!!

    Here I was jealously ogling the prizes and getting ready to congratulate whoever actually won because I surely never expected to win myself. Love the idea to make a video of the drawing, too! It’s nice to see you!

    Thanks so much! 😀

    Congrats to winners!! Great idea using the video to show the drawing.

    Hi Amy,

    Lovely to see you in person on here. I was going to say ‘see you personally’, but that would imply you don’t put a lot of yourself into the blog, and that’s just not true!

    What a charming way to announce the winners! Of course, the biggest winner is you, Amy, because you’ve expanded your audience.

    And with the quality of your photographs, a wider audience is definitely deserved.

    Congratulations to winners and “sponsor” alike.


  9. Penelope Anne replied:

    I just loved your video announcement and am honored to win….you have inspired me to do something similar once we get moved and settled….Wisconsin has such fun items I can gather.
    I will be on pins and needles awaiting this lovely prize.

    You are the sweetest and have I mentioned I love your voice???

    I’m so glad you all liked the video. To say I was nervous about posting it is an understatement! Anyway, I’m glad I did it and I would do it again.
    As for the draw itself, congrats again to the winners and to those not lucky enough to win this time, I may have something in the pipeline. Not another competition yet, but I’ll reveal all when I’ve put things into place. Watch this space!
