Winner: The Organized Fashion Designer
As best as I can tell -it was difficult to sort through- we had 35 entrants to win the copy of Esther Melander’s book, The Organized Fashion Designer. As you may recall, entering consisted of leaving a comment but you could score another entry by posting the contest to Facebook. Since we had so few entries and I was curious, never having done this before, I did search Facebook for those who said they’d posted there. I wasn’t able to corroborate one claimant (gave her the benefit of the doubt) but two parties who claimed to have posted there, did not and I would know because we’re friends there. Tsk Tsk. I’ve already forgotten who they were but conclude I’ll have to do things differently next time. Maybe a share is better since those are easier to track.
No matter, with dual entries complicating winner selection, I put it into a spreadsheet according to comment timeline with duplicates appearing consecutively. Using the Random Number Generator, Leslie W was selected as the winner. Yay Leslie! I’ll forward your information to Esther so you two can work this out amongst yourselves.
A bit off topic: I had ordered a hard copy of the book to have on hand to show customers who came in but delivery was delayed and hence, this follow up. Now that I have a copy in hand (I bought the stapled booklet), I can tell you that I’m impressed. You know how it is, sometimes text doesn’t translate well from ebook to hard copy and vice versa. Of the two formats, I like the hard copy better. The print quality was very nice. Smooth pages and clear print, although there is a bit of ghosting but it is not noticeable (in case that sort of thing bothers you) perhaps because the text is not dense.
Moving forward, I plan to post freebies all this week. I’m a bit behind in that regard. I have 7 different books to give away, the latest one came in last night and I’m very excited about it as you may be too.
So… hopefully I can catch up soon. In addition to my usual duties and responsibilities, I’ve been nursing sick cats, one of which –my boy cat Right– will not recover. It’s a bit of putting off the inevitable, no joy either way in that. He looks so healthy in that photo. Left, his litter mate (pictured with him) died in 2005. Anyway, I’m shopping for trees. I’ve picked out a globe willow to plant over him.
