200th Post Giveaway Winners!

 So after ten posts and about ten days, my first giveaway has drawn to a close. Did I think that given the length of the giveaway more people would have entered? Yes. Am I disappointed that fewer than twenty people did? Not at all, because that means that for the people who did enter, there was a much better chance of winning!

Let me explain a little how I organized this. Like I said, there were three prizes, and each person had to list them in order of preference. The first random number chosen was first prize, and will receive their first choice. The second random number chosen was second prize, and that person will receive their first choice, if their first choice was not the same as the first prize winner, or their second choice, if it was. And the third random number chosen was third prize, will receive their first or second choices if those haven't already been awarded, and their third choice if their first and second choices have already been awarded.

Make sense? I hope so, because I'm even starting to confuse myself!

So, without further ado...

The THIRD PRIZE WINNER is 
  number sixteen, Kendra



And she wins her second choice, the earrings!


Congratulations Kendra! Expect an email about your prize!

The SECOND PRIZE WINNER is
number fourteen, Amy!


and she wins her second choice, the necklace!


Congratulations, Amy! Expect an email about your prize!

And the FIRST PRIZE WINNER is
number five, J!

and she wins her first choice, the brooch!


Congratulations, J! Expect an email about your prize!


So there you have it. The winners of my very first giveaway. And look, in the end, no one got stuck with third choice!

Thank you to everyone for entering, even if you didn't win anything. Maybe next time? Apparently you get good odds entering into my giveaways :)

This was a lot of fun, so I expect I'll be doing it again soon! (Maybe for 200 followers? That's another 200th I'm close to reaching :) Probably not, it'll be too soon. I'll probably still be mailing out these prizes!) But don't worry, I'll let you know when I'm doing another giveaway!

Thanks for playing everyone! 
Hope you're having a great weekend!
