Blog Candy Winner!!!

So I used the random.org number generating program and got number 43. So, number 43 - give me your address by e-mailing me at mcclellans@stx.rr.com and your stuff will be on its way next week!! Ha ha, almost tricked ya, right? Did you think I was going to make everyone count? Well, I wasn't. #43 is Tracy and here's her comment:

This is probably a funny thing to look forward to but my baby is 7 weeks old now and I have received so many REALLY cute summer outfits...so the thing that I am most looking forward to is dressing him in them and going for walks!

AN UPDATE!!! If you read my post below, you'll remember my ordering fiasco with Plaid. Well, as some of you suggested, the day after I placed the order, I called them. The representative said there was NOTHING that they could do. So, I figured, I'll make something positive out of this and give them some very kind, constructive criticism. I basically said that they should put the true number of shipping days an item would take next to the shipping options so that when you select 2nd day air, you know it's really 4 days, and that next day air is really 3 days, and so on. Well, I got an e-mail back and here's what it said:


Thank you for taking the time to send us your comments regarding our shipping policies. We have reviewed and forwarded them to the appropriate department for consideration in our development process.

We are very sorry for your unpleasant experience and will use the information you have provided to improve our products and services. We hope that you will give us another opportunity in the future to win you back as a customer.

Thank you for contacting Plaid,

You will NEVER guess what happened 2 hours later!!!! I got an e-mail saying that my order from Plaid had SHIPPED!!!! So, even though the message they sent me said nothing about helping me out, they did, or "someone" did. I will say that my prayers were definitely answered. The package with the paints and templates that I couldn't buy (even paint was sold out at Wal-Mart!!!!) here in Del Rio because we don't have the stores that sell that kind of thing got here the day of the farewell where we made the onesies. I will post a picture tomorrow. My in-laws are here and I need to go spend time with them instead of at the computer. I can't wait to show you how cute they turned out, and maybe we'll play a guessing game to see if you can spot which ones I did. I made two because there was a left-over onesie and we didn't want to give her a plain one.

Anyway, congrats Tracy, e-mail me your address, and until Monday everyone - have a great weekend!!!


  1. Oh my goodness..thank you so much. I have sent you my mailing address! Tracy

  2. I'm so glad that everything worked out OK and your cute onesie idea panned out after all:)
