Calling January Winners Cyndi & Rho
I have heard from three of our winners–Christa, Lori and Kathy, but need to hear from all five winners before I can create the mailing information and send it out to the block-makers.
I will be going out of town this weekend and would really like to be able to send out the mailing info tomorrow before I disappear, but need a response to my email from Cyndi and Rho … and so I’m a little more anxious to hear from the winners than usual–I hate being the bottleneck and don’t want everyone to have to wait for me to return after the weekend.
For the newbies among us and others, the next steps are:
When I have heard from all five winners, confirming their mailing address and letting me know if they are keeping/sending the blocks they made, I’ll send out email to everyone who made blocks in January, letting them know what to do with their blocks. if you made more than 4 blocks, you’ll be splitting them up and sending them to 2 or 3 winners. I’d like everyone to get their blocks into the mail on the way to the winners by St. Valentine’s day on February 14.
Tonight at midnight, the February block will be posted and you can begin to post photos of your blocks.
Soon afterward, the Weekend Update post (with the Linky list) will be posted. There is no specific topic this week, but NEXT week there will be a topic–check out the weekend update post for details.
Sometime tomorrow, I’ll update the At-a-Glance page with the February information. Moving forward, I’ll include the Topic of the month for the Weekend Update and the dates for the Topic weekend. I plan to replace the blog feed on that page with blogs that participate in the Weekend Update Linky lists. This will keep the list more current (instead of the list of blogs by everyone who has ever made lotto blocks).
