We have a winner (and new blinkie)!

Thank you so much for all of your input (even my dad put his two cents in)! I was glad to have your perspectives on the blinkie. 42 of you preferred "she's crafty" and 34 of you thought that "a fresh slice of crafty" was better. 

I have to admit, that my favorite was the "fresh slice" option... but like many of you noted, it was more difficult to read. Also, while "she's crafty" was a great simple option, I worried that it might cause more confusion because the blinkie would read : "Grace Violet (blink) She's crafty". My name is actually Kristin, but my site is Grace Violet, and that blinkie might further confuse the issue. 

In the end, I chose to go with my gut (I can't believe I just typed that; I hate the word "gut") and used "a fresh slice of crafty," but I edited it with many of the suggestions that you all provided. So, without further adieu, I present my new and improved, larger font, with a longer time in between the blink so its easier to read... BLINKIE!

Ok, now that we have that out of the way, let's get to the good stuff: the apron giveaway!

...commenter #18, Bahama Shores Mama! Congratulations! I will be contacting you so that I can get shipping information. This give-away was my first, but it definitely won't be my last; I had a lot of fun with it!

I appreciate you sticking with me while we took a break from our regularly scheduled crafting. Check back later today, and I will have a "fresh sliced craft" for you!

Thank you for choosing me! I am so excited. I totally love the look of aprons, but have never gotten in the habit of wearing one. That will change now! Thanks again. And I love the new blinkie, too!

Just wanted to update and let you know how much I love the apron you gave me. I wore it again Sunday night and I thought, I should let Grace Violet know how much I appreciate winning her giveaway.

So ~~ thank you.........over 6 months later and I'm still loving my apron!!!
