Winner for Thursday!

If you’ve found yourself here chances are that you are following our week-long daily drawing to promote our new website and gather feedback. You can find out more about our daily drawing going on this week [intlink id=”6304″ type=”post”]right here[/intlink].


Thanks to everyone for taking the time to submit feedback – we really appreciate it! Here are a few things that we’ve already implemented as a result of your comments:

  • We modified the home page slideshow so there would be a little less movement, so the words to the story would move more subtly.
  • We added a search bar to the top of the inside pages with a sidebar.
  • We added an additional version of our galleries so that if you choose to view all the thumbnails for a given gallery you can now do that. Check out our Galleries page for details.
  • And, we’re still noodling on a mobile solution – getting closer though!

As promised we selected a winner from Thursday’s drawing at random. The name was selected by using a cute little app called Tea Round. We entered all the names of the participants into the app, asked it to pick one person at random and we got a winner! Dani Vello is the recipient of a $25 gift card to Congratulations Dani! I have to mention that Dani has been my most active poster so I’m SO happy that her name was selected!

Just 1 days remains or the contest – Friday’s winner will be the recipient of a $25 gift card of their choice from any one of the following: Pottery Barn,, Dunkin Donuts, Home Depot. Take your pick!  Remember, we need to have 10 participants to select a winner so be sure to share this drawing with family and friends. All you need to do is leave a comment on any post on our [intlink id=”5242″ type=”page”]blog[/intlink] or complete our survey.

Thanks again everyone & keep those cards & letters coming!
