So it occurs to me (mostly because people keep asking) that I described WHAT I won, but never told you the how & why! You can see the part that I'm really concerned with :) But here's the story:
A few months back I got an email from Michael's (the craft store) about a big Martha Stewart giveaway on a website called HouseParty.com . House party selects "hosts" to hold parties celebrating various new products or TV shows. The Martha Stewart party would have included various craft supplies to play with, but I didn't get selected. Bummer.
But since I was already registered on the site, I started poking around at what else they were giving away parties for, and the only other one open was an "online party" for Sargento (the cheese people). I signed up, and then got a little disappointed when it turned out to be a discussion group about Sargento products...uh, okay. I like cheese more than the average person, but I don't have a lot to say about it.
But as part of the "Great Create Afterparty" as it was called, they posted a series of questions about holidays and traditions, and asked for us virtual guests to leave comments on each of the questions. They randomly picked a winner each week, and it just so happened that I got extremely lucky!
Thanks cheese people, and HouseParty.com - I can't wait to play with all my new toys!
