And The Winners for the "Celebrate Oz" Blog Party Drawing Are ....

As promised, shortly after Noon today, I put all 14 names of the persons who commented on my "Celebrate Oz 2012" Blog Party posting into my pointy witch hat and as I drew them out I numbered each folded entry. 

The fun part?  Opening each little folded piece of paper to find the name of the winner revealed!  So, here are the winners in the order their names were drawn from my black witchy hat:

1st Place:  Magaly - winner of an original Oz Series ACEO of her choice (which turns out to be "The Wicked Witch Is Dead!").

2nd Place:  Sammie - winner of an entire Open Edition Oz ACEO Series (18 in all)!

3rd Place:  Debbie of Craftymoose Crafts fame - winner of 2 group 8" x 10" open edition prints featuring all 18 of the Oz characters.

4th Place:  Kitty, the Hockman Girl - winner of the ruby red hand crocheted book marker.

5th Place:  Lise - winner of one of the emerald green hand crocheted amulet necklaces.

6th Place:  Gloria of New End Studio - winner of the other emerald green hand crocheted amulet necklace.

Congratulations to all of the "Celebrate Oz 2012" winners!

I have notified all of the winners prior to posting this announcement, as soon as I have received each of their full names and addresses I will mail out their respective prizes.

Thank you to all of you who participated in the "Celebrate Oz" Blog Party and for all of the wonderful comments you shared at my blog.

Happy Day!
Karen Anne


  1. Congrats everyone! I am just beyond thrilled to win the two 8x 10 prints of all the characters! Thank you so much Karen Anne for your generous giveaway!

  2. You are very welcome Debbie! They are now packaged and ready to hand over to the postman when he gets to our place tomorrow!

    Big hugs! 8)

  3. Sorry I missed your post! I wasn't available yesterday. Congrats to your winners. :)

  4. Congratulations to each of the winners of Karen Anne's beautiful art.
    I think this years event was even better than last year and Karen Anne, you are a big reason why, with all of your enthusiasm and generosity but most especially because of your sense of fun. Thanks from the bottom of my heart, Oma Linda

  5. Congrats to the winners!!!! I am visiting & partying a little late but there is still so much food!!!! So I'm always the last to leave ;)

  6. Oh, wow! I can hardly believe it! This is the first time I have ever won a prize, ever! And that includes childhood!

    I will wear it with pride (and I notice that if you wear it, it helps with luck! And I need all the luck I can get these days!).

    Thank you so much Karen Anne! I am beyond thrilled!

  7. Hi Faerie Moon, Oh ... I'm sorry you weren't able to visit yesterday too; unfortunately I am under a timing constraint and held the drawing today. Maybe next year I'll be able to several days before having the final drawing.

    Ah, shucks Oma Linda .... actually you are the one who sparked my enthusiasm ... your spirit is very contagious! Thank you for hosting this Oz-picious Event!

    Oh, Lise ... I am delighted you like it! It should look very nice with your rennaisance attire as well as everyday wear. Looking forward to putting in an evelope to send to you! Thanks for joining in on the fun!

    Happy Day all!
    Karen Anne

  8. Oh Karen, I can't wait to be able to appreciate those striped stockings and those bright choose face-to-face!

    Thanks so much, you are the best!

    1. Oh Wow Magaly! Thank You so much! I now have threaded commenting in my blog! This makes it so much more personalized! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! 8D

  9. Well, Magaly, the postman picked up your envelope this morning ... so it is now enroute to You!

    Watch for a cream colored envelope with a little dancing Irish Lassie stamped on the front!

  10. Gina and Gloria (New End Studio) also left comments ... but they disappeared into internet limbo ... I clicked on the publish button and they just vanished! Poof!

    So, thank you both for your comments ... just sorry they vanished! 8(

  11. Karen Anne, I just wanted to let you know my friend, just incase Gloria hasn't told you, but she won't be able to comment on your blog, because you have it embedded below, for commenting. I love it this way to, especially for commenting back to people, but I changed it back, because it's a glitch in blogger, some people can't comment on other blogs, when it's this way? Don't know why?

    I am so happy for the winners! Really I am! Darn it! No, no, I mean, I am really happy ;o) Lucky them! Not really! Just teasing! LOL! They are truly lucky, because I know your art is amazing! Your art is meant to be treasured!!!!

    Get back to me about the originals ;o) Big Hugs ;o)

    1. Hey thanks for the info Stacy, I'm going to try it this was for awhile .... if it causes too much trouble, I'll switch back. Maybe this glitch will be corrected soon? Hope so, cuz this is really a nice option ... makes comments way more personal.

      To be honest, I was kinda tempted to choose my winners - but that would not have been at all fair. I simply had too many good friend entries and not enough prizes! Maybe next time I will have a special bonus prize for anyone who leaves a comment? Hmmmm, that is something to think about!

      I wonder if Gloria changed her blog posts and comments to embedded she might be able to clear away that glitch? Just a thought ....

      Happy day Stacy! 8)

      Even though you didn't win one of the prizes ... you are a true WINNER in every sense of the word!

  12. Hey Karen Anne ;o) I agree with you! Having your blog this way, is a nice option! I would like to change mine back ;o) I never thought about Gloria changing her blog this way, if that would clear the glitch! Have to tell her!
    You did your giveaway right! I am like that too, sometimes I want to pick my winners, but I feel that's cheating, so I don't ;o)
    Big Hugs ;o)

    1. Do mention it to Gloria! Maybe it will solve her glitches. Here is the link that Magaly gave to me on the subject; it is really easy to do ...

      Happy Day! 8)

  13. A huge congrats to your lucky winners!
