Yes, it is Valentine's Day. Blah blah blah. ;)
More importantly, though, today is the day that the winner of my giveaway is announced. I'm sure you've all been keeping your fingers and toes crossed all week. Afterall, we all need a bit of fugly in our lives.
Firstly, I would like to extend a big, huge, massive THANK YOU to everyone who entered... and for all the birthday love. And, of course, an even bigger, huger, massiver (yes, it is a word) THANK YOU to the lovely Lucy who hosted the amazing success that was the Fugly Fabric Party. You go girl. :)
Now... onto the lucky winner. Unfortunately my IT guru, who is amazing at all things geek-related, is (once again) away so I'm just going to ask for a bit of trust here. For the draw I have used random.org but can not for the life of me remember how to publish the picture (and proof). Sorry. I promise it is all legit. Anyhoo...
Mr Random selected comment... #9! Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Congratulations Celtic Thistle. I have emailed you. I can't wait to see what you do with these... err... lovelies so please be sure to keep us all posted. :)
Ok, I know I brushed over it earlier... but, honestly, Valentine's Day is really, really, really hard to ignore. It is EVERYWHERE. Flowers, balloons, hearts, chocolates, cutesy little teddy bears etc etc etc. Now, don't get me wrong, I am definitely not anti-Valentine's, but the whole out-on-displayness of it all is not my kind of thing. When it comes to love I am quite private and prefer to keep my sentiments between myself and my partner. Infact, most "romantic" gestures that seem to be featured repeatedly on this very day, make me want to gag. Public declarations of love? Shudder. Flowers delivered to work? Cringe. Being proposed to infront of a crowd or on a tv program? Vomit.
BUT... I realised long ago that I am in the minority when it comes to what constitutes romance so I do not begrudge or judge anyone else's special moments, particularly on a day that is all about love. So, however you choose to spend your time today, whether alone, with a special someone, or with a group of friends and/or family, I honestly, truly hope that you have an amazing day. Celebrate your way... and enjoy every second.
