Giveaway Winners! And, You Guys Are Awesome.

So, wow.  I posted yesterday about cranky comments.  And then, I went out of town for the day.  I came back...


There were so many of you assuring me I wasn't hefty.  And I don't really feel hefty anyway, but I love that all of you saw someone being called a name and rushed to reassure them that they were just super.  Every one of you proved what kind of blogger and person you are by supporting another blogger when they're targeted by a mean comment.  I can't thank all of you enough.  I replied to every comment (I think!)... if you didn't get a reply to your comment, check to see if you're a no-reply blogger!

Oh, and do me a favor:  If any of you get a mean comment, BLOG ABOUT IT.  Put it out there.  Don't be intimidated and just delete without standing up for yourself.  The amount of support I received yesterday made me feel loved.  For reals.  I have the best readers ever.  'Cause they're my friends, too.

With all that support, today turned out to be a bad day to pick giveaway winners... I mean, all those awesome comments made me question the number of winners to pick.  I picked one and then I was like, "No, my readers deserve more of a chance to win."  So then I picked two.  And three.  It just got more serious after that.

I picked ten winners.  And I don't feel like that's enough.  I had to draw the line though, because it's going to take me a million years to make all these prizes.  I am a glutton for punishment.

Here's the winners!  I'm going to email all of you and let you pick a prize.  If you didn't win, don't worry!  I think I'll be doing more giveaways like this again soon because I have no idea about my limitations.  I'm sort of a wannabe-superwoman over here. :)

All right... now I have to start diligently making crafts for ten people.  And feeling guilty that I couldn't pick everyone. You guys are amazing!

I link up at these great parties!


  1. I once got a mean comment, but it was in a foreign language and while the translation used words like "bitter" and "hateful" I couldn't rely on it enough to call it out so I just deleted it. I'm glad that you had such a great response.

    Oh, I didn't get a reply to my comment but I'm not a no-reply blogger (I got a reply to another comment I left elsewhere yesterday). Not that I need one, but there may be others you left out that you had wanted to reply to!

  2. You are so funny. I hope while you are in your giveaway sweat shop, you'll still have time for some new posts :)

  3. Could you possibly tell me how to NOT be a "no reply blogger"? Apparently I am and didn't know it!? I didn't get a comment from you so I checked (like you said) and can't figure out where to change it. Thanks! :)

  4. So excited to see that I am a winner...whoot, whoot! And seriously I read your blog everyday, I started one but am a terrible writer...but once in a while I post.. LOL like every 2 years or so.

  5. Ok. I read yesterday's pot and looked at the pic you had with the recipe and I have to say I'm peeved!! I would venture to guess you and I are about the same size. Considering the epidimic of obesity in this country, having the nerve to call you hefty nearly leaves me speechless. NEARLY! I would love someone to tell me I'm hefty. Hopefully she will see your post and at least woman up and admit who she is. Her comments were the "gross" part. I'm sorry you had that happen to you!

  6. Excited to see that I am one of the winners. THANKS Tracy

  7. I couldn't fine a comment on my blog, is there some trick to locating them, I am not very good at this blogging thing. :)

  8. Ok I found the comments...duh only took me 8 hours...I will send you a reply

  9. I just had my blog attacked by an ex-friend it was enormous had bad this made me feel, it was my post titled "whats my problem" in the comment section this person airs her stupid assumption and causes all kinds of private e-mails from others that know we are no longer friends but like you the support from MBBF (my best bloggee friends) got me past manslaughter. we are a strong united group I have found & girl I gotcha back!! Have a better tomorrow :}

  10. I'm so glad everyone supports you! You are a fantastic person, and super funny. I'll be around more now, I'm on summer vacation, woo hoo!!! I haven't seen a recent picture, but I never thought you were a 'heafty', thrifty, crafty, girl. That is a nice title though....heehee. Hugs~Lori

  11. I am so excited about being a winner. I thought you were great before this, but now I think you're out of this world. hehehe


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
