Pixie's Snippets Playground Weeks 260/261 Celebration - Prize Results

At last, it's time for the prize draw which so many of you entered over Christmas. A HUGE thank you to everyone who played along - and I only wish every single one of you could be a winner.

There were 16 different numbers to draw for the prizes, and you'll have to take my word for the Mr Random results. In order to show just one actual gizmo result on here I have to do a screen shot, copy that into the clip board, then drop it into a piece of software (I use GIMP) edit the image to pick out just the result box before copying it into the blog post. Times 16 would take me far too long as am sure you'll understand!

Here we go!

Prize A - Cheery Lynn 'Winters Neighbourhood Border' die, Impressions Obsession 'Evergreen Tree' dies, Lawn Fawn 'Winter Bunny' stamp and matching die, MFT 'Surf and Turf' slider die set and two packets of the super little 'Spin and Slide Discs'

#33 Liz

Prize B - Creative Expressions 'Let It Snow' die

#45 Kath

Prize C - Crafts-Too 'Let It Snow' embossing folder (6 to be won)

#18 Jackie T
#52 Trina

As I already said above, I do so wish you could all have won a prize! It was interesting that quite genuinely, no-one won two prizes. Sometimes that Random number thingy spooks me a bit!

So all I need now please is your addresses so I can post the goodies off to you ASAP, for reasons which will become clearer in a week or so. Just drop me an email (my address is on the RHS sidebar) with your address and can you please also put your full name in the address to save me some time. Please also confirm that I haven't got in a muddle and you really do want the prize you won. It'll make sure I don't make any errors. If you put WINNER in the email subject line then I'll be able to spot them quickly too.

You'll understand soon why I'm running round like a scalded cat here BTW! :)

Thanks girls - and a huge thank you to everyone for joining in the fun! 

Love from Parsnip, and of course me!

  34. Congrats to all the winners! I'm impressed that Random thingy actually was random for a change!!

    1. That's interesting you should say that PJ. Sometimes on a Saturday I might have to run the Random number thing a few times to get a winner who has said that they want the prize. And sometimes the same or very close numbers pop out again. I suspect it's based on picking up sounds and then correlating those to numbers - no kidding, that's how it used to be done! x

  35. Congrats to all the winners!!! and thanks to you Di as well huggles Sue xxxxxxxxx

  36. Thank you so much for comment on my blog, I am here first time and I will be here often, greetings from Poland :)

  38. This is wonderful, Di! Thank you so much! I am excited and happy to be a winner! Congratulations to all the winners! You have awarded so many generous prizes! I am happy to see many familiar names on the list! So sorry for the late reply as my computer died again! Thank you to my sweet friend scrAPamondo (Alice P) for directing me here to make sure I didn't miss out! I will email you shortly, Di, thank you!
