Announcing the winners!

Thank you all so much for entering the competition/celebration and for supporting Monkey Hugs and Snugglebugs.

I won't make you all read through a huge post just to find out who won, so let's get announcing!

Firstly, the winner of the $20 store voucher is....

Rebecca Parsons!

The winner of "Sam" the Snugglebug baby is....

Lara Motta!

and, finally, thank you to everyone who "referred a friend". The winner of the custom monkey spot is...

Cath Dee! and Cath, you should thank Lee-Ann van Deventer  as it was her comment (number 17) that picked as the winning number!

Congratulations Rebecca, Lara and Cath and a reminder that I need to hear from you all by 7:30pm tomorrow night to claim your prizes (Rebecca, you don't have to spend the voucher straight away, just claim it!)

Thank you all again... until our next celebration! (maybe if we hit 1000?)

The well and truly past 400 liker and nearly at 500 celebration!

Thank you all for your amazing support of Monkey Hugs and Snugglebugs. It was only a month ago that I opened the page for business and here we are already well over 400 likers and getting closer and closer to that 500 mark! I have had the pleasure of dealing with some wonderful ladies, both as customers and as general all round wonderful supporters of my page and I am ever so grateful to each and every one of you.

I promised a celebration when we hit 400 and have decided that since we are so close to that 500 liker mark, I will make our 400 liker celebration a bit of  double-header...

Firstly, we'll be having a "refer-a-friend" competition. To enter you must:
1) be a liker of Monkey Hugs and Snugglebugs facebook page
2) refer at least one liker and have them comment on the photo here  that you sent them (eg "Sent by Sam Gibson" or "Sam Gibson sent me").

You will receive one entry for each new person you refer. The winner will be chosen at random, so it will not necessarily be the person who has referred the most people, but the more referrals, the more chances to win and of course, the friends you refer are able to enter as well (as long as they refer another friend). The lucky winner of the refer-a-friend competition will receive one custom made monkey (made from the dolls and daydreams pattern) like this:

Please note that the monkeys in the picture are already sold and are just an example. I will work with the winner to create a special monkey just for them, so please be aware that it may take 2 to 3 weeks to complete. Regular postage within Australia is also included.

The second game of the double-header (does everyone get the baseball reference or is it just me being around my American, baseball-loving husband too much?) will be a tag to win competition. The prizes for the tag to win are:

1) a $20 store credit voucher, to be used towards any purchase or custom order (not including postage) and

2) Sam, the snugglebug baby (regular postage within Australia included in prize). Entry for this one is easy, simply tag yourself in the pictures located here in the 400 plus liker folder and comment under the picture with your email address. You can tag yourself in both pictures and the winners will be drawn at random. You can only enter to win each prize once.

As always, entry is open to international likers also, but if you win, you will be required to pay the difference in postage for those prizes where postage is included.

Competition opens right now and you will have until 7:00pm (Qld time) on Friday 14th of October 2011 to enter. Winners will be drawn on Friday night and announced here on the blog. I will then email the winners and they will be given 24 hours to respond. If I have not heard from any winner by 7:30pm on Saturday 15th of October, that prize will be redrawn.

Thank you all and good luck!
