SMS Giveaway winners!

Last night, after I realized that it was already Friday (where on earth does all my time run off to?) I picked the 3 winners for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day. I used a random number generator to pick 3 numbers and then used the corresponding comment number to determine the 3 winners. Each winner will receive any 3 Elysium patterns of their choice.  These are the numbers that were generated. Congrats ladies! <3 

#60 ~ Crunchy Con Mommy
#52 ~ Liz, Quilt Adventurer
#105 ~ debbiekl

That was fun, but I was way too tired to put together a post that made any kind of sense last night. So, I drug myself to bed with plans to post the winners in the morning. Today I woke up with blogging on my mind and my first thought was why not give even more patterns away! Either I just really like playing with the random number generator or I felt bad that I couldn't give something to everyone who commented. I'm not really sure... Either way it sounded like fun so I went with it.

So, as I sat here looking through all the comments and thinking how nice you all are I devised a plan for picking a few extra winners! I mentioned in the giveaway that you could get an extra entry by liking my Facebook page, following my blog and/or adding my Etsy shop to your favorites. I know what a pain it can be to go and do all of that stuff but I really appreciate that you took the time to do it anyway so I decided to have a separate drawing for each of those.

What I did was make a separate list of everyone who did each thing and commented on it here. Then I went back to play with the random number generator again!  I picked one winner from each list.

  Please feel free to ignore my horrid penmanship. It's almost as bad as my grammar
Each of you lovely ladies will receive 1 Elysium pattern of your choice :)  

From the people that followed my Blog ~ CarrieM

From those of you who were sweet enough to click over to Facebook and like my page ~ Jen
the craftng fiend

From everyone who took the time to check out my Etsy shop and add it to their favorites ~ Elisabetta

That was fun, but reading through all the comments I still wanted to give away at least one more pattern. So just for fun I clicked the generate button again and got #29  Sumi you will also receive 1 Elysium pattern of your choice.

Even after all that I still didn't feel like I had thoroughly expressed my thanks. So of course I did another drawing. This time I made a list of all the people that had expressed their thanks in the comment they left.  SarahB was the lucky # on that one!  Sarah you will also receive 1 Elysium pattern of your choice.

I figured I better stop there....for now!  Did I mention how much I love doing giveaways?

I want to thank everyone who took the time to comment here and enter the giveaway. I truly appreciate all the kind words. Hopefully soon I'll be able to get some fun stuff posted so you'll have a good reason to come back and visit me!
