So sorry this “reveal” is so late in coming--I am utterly exhausted! I naively assumed that, in spite of my fibromyalgia, I would sleep well in a strange bed, that I could party with my friends (My name is Heidi and I’m a wheataholic) with no sufferance of consequences and stay up until the wee hours of the morning chatting with all and sundry and not suffer my usual insomnia due to the spinning of my thoughts after the strange and exotic stimulation of having a real conversation with a real woman/women. After all of that abuse to my system (don't get me wrong, I loved every millisecond of it and it was totally worth it!) I came home to a home even dirtier than the one I left (no surprises there) and my once dreamy bedroom is now the stuff of nightmares, the living room is a death-trap and the kitchen is downright poisonous. (Good thing I don’t deign to cook actual food in there.) In other words, I am nearly catatonic.
Before I announce the winners, I want to say how very VERY much I wanted to cheat. How fun it would be to have these things go to those who wanted them most or who was most appropriate (Marmee/Little Women paperdolls, Funky Bag Freak/funky bag are two examples that leap immediately to mind). However, I also want to be able to hold my head up high and say with no reservations that those who won, won without any cheating. I guess I wanted to do the second more than the first because that’s the way it went down.

Come back tomorrow for my blog post about all the fun bloggists I got to meet over the weekend. It. Was. Awesome. I would do it all again in a heartbeat. But only if it is a rather long and prolonged heartbeat what with that whole being tired thing and all . . .
