Random Contests Are Back!

Hi All!

After a contest chat with our Crafty Amanda, she told me about the Random contests she used to have. What a great idea and what fun!

So as of today, consider this contest "type" back in business. Let me tell you how this works.

There are several ways to win. See the box to the right of the boards that says "Online Users"? I might pick one of you as a winner, just for being on FC. Did you post a photo in 2008 or even 2005??? I might choose a lovely photo from the past. You win! I might go thru new posts or posts from a certain forum and pick someone. You win! Its just that simple!

When will I do this? When the fancy strikes me. It's random. Who knows!

I will post the winner in this thread and send you a PM. Then the prize is off to you. What is the prize?? I don't know! It's random!

I think this sounds super fun, and I am really excited that Amanda shared this super idea with me. Thanks Crafty Amanda!

Keep your eye on this thread. You never know who and when I will spy with my little eye!

Have a super weekend!
