PakNaks Giveaway Winners!

After typing all of your entries into excel, which numbered them 1 to 111 (how's that for symmetry?) and communing with the powers that be over at, which picked numbers 19, 21 and 59, I'm delighted to announce that the winners of the three PakNak sets are:

*drumroll please*
  1. Moma4Faith - your profile isn't enabled, please contact me within 4 days to collect your prize
  2. Phyllis Sommer

Congratulations to all three of you. I'll be forwarding each of your e-mail addresses to the lovely folks over at PakNaks, who will be in touch with you directly to arrange shipping of the four PakNaks of your choice.

Thanks everyone for participating, and for those that didn't win remember that all Around the Island readers are eligible for a 15% discount on PakNak orders by entering the code LUV15 at checkout.

I'm glad Phyllis won. She sent me a giveaway of a BuildABear certificate because I commented on one her posts, and now I got a nice thank you from my niece (who has two little boys! I'm a Grand Aunt twice!). Congrats to Moma4Faith and mom2anutball, too.

Jennifer, if you go into your Google account profile it will give you the option to enable your profile - without that no one will be able to find your blog.

Robyn, I didn't see a box to check to enable it, but I did make a profile (I didn't have one before) and I added your email to my friends list. My blog isn't on blogger, it is on, but I added the url to my profile.

Thanks again for having a wonderful contest for the readers and friends of your wonderful blog!
