Contest Judged ... Finally

Blog Posted:9/30/2013 11:26:00 AM
Well, I've finally managed to finish judging my contest. I didn't realize you had to click on the little calender thingy at the bottom of the contest page in order for the winners to be posted. So, I've been coming back every day for the past few days to check the winner's page to see who won. I just figured that little bit out, so now the winner's are posted. I very much enjoyed so many of the entries, but the one that spoke to me the most was "Tangled Vines". I see now that it was written by Andrea Dietrich. So, Andrea, when you come by this blog or see yourself on the winner's list, just soupmail me a mailing address and I'll have your walking stick on the way shortly. Congrats to her and all the winners!! Thanks everybody!!!

    Caleb, what an AWESOME surprise, I can't wait for this carved walking stick!! It's such a sweet kind of prize, something done by your own hand! I hope you will take a picture of it and show it in a blog because I don't know how to take photos and show them here without my nephew here to help me! Thanks so very much. I will soupmail you my address. Congrats to everyone!! And thanks for allowing me to enter with an older poem, originally inspired by a contest of "broken wings." Luv, Andrea
