And the winner is.....

I am excited to announce my Blogoversary Boot Loot contest winner!!!!!

First, I thought I would tell you how the winner was picked.  Kristine and I decided to have the person who posted the OLDEST post be the winner. We hadn't thought as far as a tie, but we would have come up with a tie-breaker of some sort if we had needed to.  We thought in a round-about way that since we were having the contests for how long we've been blogging, it would be fun to honor someone who picked the oldest post and perhaps might have even been a reader for the past two years.  Of course, everyone was told to "peruse" our blogs for their favorite posts, so it could have been anyone that won - it just might have taken some digging!  ;)

Without further ado, the winner on my blog is.........

NAOMI VESTEL!!!!  Here is her post:

So this is ancient, but it reminds me of when our girls played together and it is so innocent. Oct 21, 2006 http://bootstostamps.typepad.com/from_combat_boots_to_rubb/2006/10/the-cutest-girl.html

Congratulations Naomi - I will get the Loot out in the mail to you tomorrow!!!  Congrats to Kristine's winner too!!!  You can see who won her Blog Candy by going HERE to her blog.

To all of my readers and all of those that played - having you check in each day and leave such sweet and uplifting comments that give me such great feedback about my creations really brightens my day and brings a smile to my face.  I appreciate each and every one of you.  I wouldn't be blogging if I didn't care about what you think.  Thanks for being such a great group!  Because you're so great I'm really going to get back to giving you a little something as a token of my appreciation at every 25K milestone that my blog hits in visitors.  So, keep your eyes peeled for the next Boot Loot that will occur at 100K!!!!!
