Well, the contest is over and I must say I'm pretty dissapointed at the turnout of participants. However, winners are as follows:
Grand Prize: Alex & Nick
First Prize: Mom
Honorary Participants: Anna, Lisa, and Polly
Alex & Nick and Mom were the only ones who actually followed the directions, but since Alex & Nick posted more photos by far, they win the grand prize: a copy of "A Guide for Grown ups" which features quotes and art work from various books written by the same author as "The Little Prince." Only a true Little Prince lover would appriciate it.
Mom did follow all the directions, but gets knocked down in prize ranking only because Alex posted more. For first prize mom wins a brownie mix. Now you can make brownies... again!
(Sorry Mom, I can't find a picture of a box of brownie mix and I don't currently have one on hand, but just imagine a box of brownie mix that will arrive at your home soon.)
Polly kind of entered the contest, but since she posted her entry on the MyFamily website instead of a blog like the directions clearly indicated, her honorary participant prize is: another framed photo of me! Apparently she loves them so much.
Anna deffinitely did enter the contest like she was supposed to, but since her video is black (no real proof of the really cool blanket I made) and she never made any other attempt to post another picture or video, she falls under the honorary participant category. Anna's prize: a glow-in-the-dark dinosaur. Maybe this will help with future videos taken in dark rooms.
Lisa really is cool since she did already post a picture of herself with the bag I crocheted for her for Christmas, but since she didn't follow the directions and make a post about it after the contest post, she qualifies as an honorary participant. Lisa's prize: game night with me and Bryan this week (tonight maybe?) playing Ticket to Ride (the way more fun Germany version) that Bryan and I rented from Boardgame Revolution. Actually, I guess that doesn't seem like a real, tangible prize. So, Lisa, you are still invited to play games (as always), but your real prize will be: your very own lime green swim cap! (You know, to help you train for your next triathalon.)
Well, that's it folks. Thanks for participating. And Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
