"C" is for Crow...."W" is Winner....

The time has come....and a winner has been drawn....

These little guys will be off to a new home:

I've often read where the hostess of a giveaway says they wish they could give something to everyone who entered. I thought it was just something "nice" that they said. Until I had my own giveaway.  Now I know how they feel. You all have given me such kindness that I truly wish I could send you each something from my heart.  But we know that isn't for now, there's just one winner.

  Drawn the old-fashioned way because, frankly, the thought of doing Random Generator with my OCD brain scared me.  (Do I remove unintentional duplicate entries and those who never have followed and renumber, or do I assign numbers and simply re-generate if it lands on one of those??? See where I was going???)

Anyway, Dear Only Son drew this slip of paper:

Whitney Courtney from Sassafras & Winterberry.  Congratulations!
Please email me your address and I'll try to get this packaged up and out to you in the next couple of days.....

Thank you to all who commented and entered. I was truly humbled.  Hopefully this spring things will be calmer and more normal, and I can do something again.

And, yes, "P" is for Panic.  I'm still knee-deep in it.

Does this count as having my trees up??

Fa La La La La.....

Congrats Courtney..
I think that will qualify you as having your tree up..Cute Display of all your Sheep..
Its not about having the tree up..its about the love we share at Christmas while celebrating Jesus Birtheday... I'm sure he won't mind if you only have your small trees diplayed as you celebrate..
