And The Winners Are...

First of all Let me just say...THANK YOU...
for participating, celebrating with us, and for all of your lovely heartfelt comments and great tunes. Jax and I have spent the entire 2 weeks dancing and I must say she has some stellar moves!

Just to play along I've compiled a very random (I'm an Artist not a DJ!) compilation from all of your favorites and a few of my own. (apologies if your selection was missed...some where hard to find through the mixpod) Some of the versions I found are classic...The boyz who preform 'Cecilia' are brilliant, and Mum..I so thought you'd love 'Jungle Drum' Cracks me up!!!

So you'll notice that the music doesn't start as soon as you've logged in!!! YAY...I finally figured out how to change that...so now if your cruising the blog whilst the wee ones are napping or shhhh...at work..you won't be caught out!

Just Press play on the MixPod and away we go....(I'll resume regular programming next week, but for now...)
LET'S DANCE!!!

So here's how we did it...I needed a bit of a kick in the butt to start a new project I've been putting off...So what better excuse to cut out many, many..squares
(I could have used the random # thinga-ma-jiggy, but thought this WAY more fun!)


I then printed out your comments and assigned each of you a number, and multiplied your chances based on your participation.


And the numbering began...


Jax and I then hit play on the music and played
SCRAMBLE!!!



She then got down to work turning all of the squares number side down...

Very proud of her work!!!
Can you tell what that project will be!...


And the games continue..
Enter the Bean Bag...

And TOSS
(take 10...as she kept overthrowing the mark...
Finally aimed for the ceiling and perfect shots...)



Drum Roll Please.....





And the Winner is.....1st place...

Congratulations Megan!
Megan confessed: " 'Mr. Roboto' by STYX is among the many songs that make chores more enjoyable at my house."

And toss number 2...





2nd place goes to...

Congratulations Erika!
Erika confessed: "I just cut a rug to the old Fatboy Slim song 'praise you' and it was awesome up in my living room!"

And finally...





3rd place is...


Congratulations Lilly (AKA Mz. K!)
Lilly's mum confessed: "Your entry rules inspired me to throw on some Bruce Springsteen (dancing in the dark)...because how can a woman alone resist that whole "middle-America, jeans and white t-shirt" genre? Get's me every time."

I'll be in touch regarding your winnings!

Congratulations and thank you to each and every one of you!
We had a blast!

Now Back to the Boogie!

That's by far the best method of randomly choosing a winner I've ever seen...and I'm not just saying that because the beanbag of fate landed on my entry! I'm so excited!

What a fun way to pick winners!

Can't wait to see that QUILT! Are you going to sew them all together in rows, or do a Disappearing Nine Patch? :o)

Mari said...

It will be my first quilt ever...So I'm going to try to keep it simple...and of course Shabby Chic! Going to attempt a randomly placed rag quilt.

Fubby said...

Simple, yeah right! your motto, "If a jobs worth doing it's worth overdoing", I know you and how complex it will get although you will make it look easy! Love you xoxoxo
