Happy Blogiversary(!) Drawing – And the Winner is…


On Monday, I offered up a lovely candle from Aroma Naturals for you, my dear readers.  It’s the Aroma Naturals’ Soy VegePure Travel Tin in Ambiance.  Aroma Naturals is the only scented candle I can burn in the house that won’t give me a headache and they have a number of very yummy varieties.  Rest, assured, dear reader, I bought it myself so you know I really and truly love it.  Also, I haven’t received any compensation for offering it up or for recommending the candles.  I get mine through my Frontier Buying-Club.

I bought the candle a few months ago when we put together our buying-club order and then hid it so that no one would think it was free game to light.  I evidently hid it quite well, because there was a brief moment of panic when I couldn’t find it!  Thankfully, all I had to do was shift my gaze upward and there it was at the top of the bookshelf.

Whew!  Crisis averted.  Where was I?  Oh, yes, the Ambiance candle.  It’s really lovely with orange and lemongrass essential oils in it and just the hint of creaminess.  Can creaminess be a scent?  It reminds me a bit of a creamsicle without all of the artificial-ness that most candles convey.

Hmmm….I don’t think I can drag this out any longer.  Who can handle the suspense?

So, here’s how this worked.  I went in and assigned each eligible comment (non-family members and non-me) a number.  In this case it was from 1-6.  The numbers are still there if you’d like to see them.  Then, I went to Random.org and asked it to give me a random number from between 1-6.  It gave me the result and I took a screenshot so everyone can see who won:

As an aside, I also figured out how to take a screenshot and would you believe how easy it was?  Command-Shift-4 and it even lets me select exactly where on the screen I’d like it to take a screenshot from.  It then miraculously shows up on my desktop.  Mac Mini of mine…have I told you lately how much I adore how easy you are to use?

By random decree the winner is #3 who said:
