And The Rabbit Zip Pouch Goes To..........

The Prize

Hey you,

Thanks to everyone for playing along. I'm very touched by the response. It was really fun reading all the comments. I really felt like a queen for a few days. You guys made me laugh and giggle and blush. How sweet! This giveaway unearthed a few "lurkers" too. I was thrilled to bits. And the best part of this giveway? I got to know some of you a little better.

A total of 51 entries were received. You know I'm into statistics, rite? So here's the breakdown of the 51 entries in terms of location.

US - 13
UK - 8
SINGAPORE - 7
AUSTRALIA - 7
NEW ZEALAND - 3
CANADA - 2
BELGIUM - 1
DENMARK - 1
IRELAND - 1
INDONESIA - 1
MALAYSIA - 1
PUERTO RICO - 1
SLOVENIA - 1
SPAIN - 1
UNKNOWN - 3

Are you surprised the most entries came from US? I'm not because I know most of my readers came from US. I've started getting more readers from UK in recent months. I have no clue why. One last interesting tidbit about the stats: All 7 entries from Singapore are from people I know!

I couldn't possible use a random generator to select the winner. It felt so inpersonal. So I let the rabbit pouch do the choosing. I wrote the names of all entries onto exercise paper from my girl's old books. Yes, I checked and re-checked I had all 51 names. Then I put them into the rabbit zip pouch.
Then I zipped it up and shook the pouch a few times. The idea is to unzip the pouch and let the names fall out until I had 1 name left. And that would be the winner. I counted the entries as they dropped out of the zip pouch. Eventually I had 50 entries! I shook the last name out. What? It wouldn't come out? What a tenacious entry. I had to fish out the name myself. This entry really really wants the zip pouch.
The winner
And the winner is Toscaberries who is from Jakarta, Indonesia. Congratulations Regina! Once I get your address, I'll ship your prize to you. Once again, a BIG THANKS to everyone. I hope you all had fun.
