Winners. It’s what’s for dinner.

January 11th, 2010

Yippeeyoodle… Thanks for playing in my Bow/No Bow contest. Thank you for your kind and hilarious comments! So a funny thing happened on my way to random.org… it didn’t want to give me a winner!  I personally don’t comment on many posts with contests because I need to use what I have, and I know there are others like me - so I gave an “X out” option.

[insert 70’s computer sound - do de do de du do de dleep]
First number RO picked was #202 - Sherri from A Quilting Life (and she chose to X out of contest)
[do de do de du do de dleep]
Second came #157 - Mary Ann (long time blog hopper - but has no blog… she also X’d out)
[do de do de du do de dleep]
Then came #241 - Anina of Twiddletales (she also X’d out)

What the what!? If this is how things work… Dear Universe, I do not wish to have a new addition on my house for a giant quilt studio with a small kitchenette and sleeping quarters for friends.  I also don’t want Jamie Durie to come landscape the studio’s garden.  I heart you, Universe - love, Monica.

And then it finally happened [insert slot machine jackpot sound - clang clang clang clang]… and the two winners are:
Comment #33 Jenny from Cut.Sew.Iron.Repeat
Comment #214 Mary from Mary on Lake Pulaski!


A ways back when I had a contest for some lovely Lecien COSMO floss… one of my winners was Sarah. We were semi-new blog pals to each other at the time… and then when she won… and when I got her address… well, there was no escaping me and we’ve since became really close friends.  Sista-friends.  With all the lovin’ Sarah got over the lil’ ZombieGirl (ZeeGee) coffee cozy she made me - I begged her to put up her coffee cozy pattern on etsy.  And she did!!  So check out Sarah’s Cottage Coffee Cozy post with all the info on her pattern.  Please don’t hold me responsible if you fall out of your chair after viewing the ultra-cuteness of her cozzies.   Buckle up.

And my lil’ ZeeGee… I picked this one:

Decision time on the new Happy Zomibe logo

Well… the one I’ll use most.   On what, I don’t know.  But it’s at the ready. I also like ZeeGee without petals, so I’ll use that too.  And special occasions and holidays… I’ll don her with a bow and other accessorizes.  Dare I ask for accessories ideas/input?  And in true form of my full name (Monica Inability To Make A Decision Solorio)… I’m keeping my beloved aqua washer.  Who’s feelings I hurt and are in need of repair.  I love you Aqua Washer, xoxom.

    It’s you who will not escape me my friend….you can’t hide now, I know where you live, mwahahaaa. I love your zombie face, I mean I sofa king love it… And I’m so happy you’re keeping the washer too, it makes me smile each time I lay eyes on it. And how fun is it going to be to accessorize your zombie face?! Dare I say sofa king fun??? Sorry, there’s no stopping me now. x

  2. The fabulous Jona allegedly said:

    Zombie Girl needs a tiara!! I’m so glad Sarah posted a pattern (smart gal)!

  3. The fabulous pam allegedly said:

    I can’t help it, I love that stinken washer. Also, love the new scallop..or am I just noticing the new scallop, I’m not sure.

  4. The fabulous pam allegedly said:

    And you’re right, those coffee cozys are wonderful.

  5. The fabulous KathiD allegedly said:

    I heart your indecisiveness. Because I too love all your assorted logoish things. (Don’t forget the zombie head top right.)

    On VERY special occasions, the little zombie could be glittered and bedazzled. I think she would like that.

    Also. Dear Universe, I definitely in no way want someone to come and organize all my stuff so that it fits where it’s supposed to and I can find it all and it looks pretty. So don’t even think about sending me anything like that, or I may have to cut you, Universe.
    Love, Kathi

  6. The fabulous KathiD allegedly said:

    One more thing.

    I don’t know how you ever expect to land on top of the corporate heap if you don’t synchronize your brand identity.

    Ha ha ha ha ha.

  7. The fabulous KathiD allegedly said:

    Or should I say

    bwa ha ha.

  8. The fabulous Jenny allegedly said:

    You girls are all too funny!

    Thanks so much Monica!

  9. The fabulous Sherri allegedly said:

    That is so funny that it took so many tries to get a winner without an x! I mean really…really…funny!

  10. The fabulous Cindy allegedly said:

    ZeeGee can have some crocs or flipflops. Or how about some Hello Kitty ears? hee hee

  11. The fabulous jodie allegedly said:

    oooh accesorise for holidays ..Halloween , valentines, Easter - super fun!

  12. The fabulous Cyndi allegedly said:

    I think I need a t-shirt Monica…

  13. The fabulous kersten allegedly said:

    ZeeGee is a perfectly fitting name for your little zombie.

  14. The fabulous Jackie allegedly said:

    I see little ZeeGee’s dancing around! Congrats to the winners!

  15. The fabulous Kimara allegedly said:

    It’s been my experience that the universe has a highly developed sense of humor… but when push comes to shove… she’s a go-to kind of gal. Although she did toy with you a bit, she did in fact supply you with 2 winners, the fact that 1 of them wasn’t me is an issue I need to take up with her… but, congrats to the 2 lucky winners. And again… thanks for the chance to win and I’m so relieved ZeeGee won’t have to don a bow everyday!!!

  16. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    Yeah Baby — no bow wins! Now, let’s get down to bid-ness. Should hubby and I be at all worried about what’s going on with you and SW3???

  17. The fabulous Sheri Zaugg allegedly said:

    I love your blog no matter what you do! It is fantastic and lots of fun.

  18. The fabulous Lissa allegedly said:

    hmm picking a fav. is like picking a fave child..my fave child is usually the one that has chosen to sleep over at his friends house for more than one night! bliss! Jamie Durie.. *sigh* he is a HOTTIE.. you know, he used to be a stripper down here in Australia.. I think he was in MANPOWER.. not that I know from experience *W*

    who never ever went to see Jamie Durie at the strippers - he’d retired by the time I was old enough to go!

  19. The fabulous Pixie's Belle allegedly said:

    A fabulous use for ZeeGee would be to find somewhere that could make her into actual, pressed and made out of plastic buttons. I’d buy them! In different colours. They’d make my clothes which I love but are a little too tame all the more interesting without taking it too far.

  20. The fabulous SuzK allegedly said:

    okay - just caught up and sat laughing my head off-I agree, no bow-why make anyone think you won’t eat their brains for goodness sake! Let ‘em take their chances. I saw those coffee holders yesterday and fell in love and ordered one…although had I seen the one she made you….way too funny. And I love your washing machine - way too cool, or as they say in South Boston: wicked awesome!

  21. The fabulous Mary on Lake Pulaski allegedly said:

    So, I don’t even care Monica if I was in the minority by not having placed an “X” in my comment!! I’m thrilled to be a winner, no matter what! ZeeGee is too cute and I would also like some buttons like her to dress up some stitchery! Great idea Pixie’s Belle!

  22. The fabulous Karen allegedly said:

    It doesn’t look to me like you quilt undecidedly! It looks to me like you always have a plan, you always stick to it, and you always finish! Putting all those fabrics together so creatively- doesn’t decisiveness? Whatever, you should do know how to put colors and textures, and prints together! Karen

  23. The fabulous Mary Ann allegedly said:

    ha ha…a long time blog hopper…made me laugh. Now if I could just figure out how to come up with my own identity I might just blog, but then I’m sure it would take hours to post everyday and when would I sew..you can see its just an endless conundrum!

  24. The fabulous Kasi allegedly said:

    CONTEST? Where the heck have I been? I’m SURE I would’ve won, too!!!

    Regardless…moving on…this is SOOO CUTE! Why can’t the little cute zombie face integrate ON the aqua washer? Maybe it’s the new face of the washer?

    When you can’t decide…MUSH TOGETHER!
    Good Luck!

  25. The fabulous Sally allegedly said:

    I am so relieved that the washer isn’t going away completely. And I’m very glad ZeeGee can look forward to a bow on special occasions.

  26. The fabulous Kim D. allegedly said:

    Funny story!! loved it. Adorable Aqua Washer, saw it on Mary’s blog.

  27. The fabulous nanette allegedly said:

    This is a funny post. As always. I had to laugh. Life is like that. The generator picked great people both times. And your new logo is charming in any form.

  28. The fabulous Brenda Kula allegedly said:

    Now there’s just a rather special relationship between a gal and her washing machine. Especially in that hue. I do love that coffee cozy. That thing is cute as a bugs ear!

  29. The fabulous Busy Little Quilter allegedly said:

    Oh, I missed out!!! I love the aqua washer (and I’ll miss it), but I love the new one. I, personally, would have chosen the one with the bow, but I love the other one, too.

    The cup cozie is sweet!!! I’ll be making one for my coffee cup!

  30. The fabulous Nerys Jenkins allegedly said:
