All Those Blog Party Winners!!

Before I start the announcing, I have some SERIOUS apologing to do.

I feel gut-punching awful--because I've made a really serious mistake.

Remember my blog party button?? How I said if you took my button you would get 3 extra entries into the Grand Finale party whether you remembered to stop by or not?

I hate typing this.

Because I forgot. I honestly and truly forgot this post and in my excitement to draw all these awesome names from the long list--I never added in the other entries.

ARGH! I'm so, so sorry. And I really can't make this better, because I've already emailed all the winners! Hate, hate, hate.

So I tried to make it a bit better and I have a stack of books (a huge stack of books) and I gave you all that took my button, 3 entries to win a book of your choice and then drew a name. I'll be emailing you soon.

I KNOW this doesn't make up for my gross mistake, but I hope you will accept my apologies. I'M SO SORRY!

That blog button winner is: Tammi

Alright, here are the real winners (and I hope I didn't make a mistake on these too--I don't think I did. sigh )
