And the Winner of the 4th Anniversary Giveaway is…

First I’ve got to tell you, choosing a winner was quite a project.  When I laid out the rules for this giveaway I offered you a second entry to telling me where you follow me outside of the blog.  What I failed to mention was to leave a second comment letting me know that.  Entirely my fault.  That meant choosing by random number was out.  Instead, I printed out every single one of your comments, printing those twice that mentioned following me.  Folding that many was out of the question, so they got wadded up instead.  Fancy, right?

For reference, that bowl measures 17” across and 5 1/2” tall.  My printer is still smoking.  I tossed that baby like a salad, then had my son reach in with one of his giant paws.  Trust me, he didn’t take this lightly – he really dug around in there.  He emerged with this one:

If you’ve been around for any of my other giveaways, you know how much I hate choosing only one winner.  So, I tossed the bowl again and my willing volunteer pulled out a second winner:
