You Win Some, You Lose Some - HAPPY UPDATE!!

After I posted the story of my giveaway prize gone wrong - full story here -I got a bunch of responses sharing in the outrage and also a few letting me know about their own giveaway dissapointments.
But now I can share my happy ending!!  It turns out the Post Office did in fact deliver the package to the wrong address,  and the recipient wrote "wrong address" on it and sent it back to the PO.

A few weeks later, the lovely Christine received it back!!  She brought it back to the Post Office and they agreed to re-ship it for free - yeay!!

So I now have my super cute tote bag and all is right in the world :)


I also have an idea for a Swap.  It would be a recipe swap with a fun twist.  And this twist is oh so fun, and I think, super creative :)  I don't want to share my idea yet, but please let me know if you are interested.  If enough people say they would want in, I will post the idea and get the swap started!!
Also, please let me know if you would prefer a $10 or $20 swap and if you would want one swap partner or if you would be more interested in doing this in groups - thanks!!


  1. Hey girl! So glad you got your bag! It is so darling - I love the fabric. I too won a giveaway and the girl never sent my prize. It was almost a year ago and even after a few months of casually asking if she had sent it out (in case I missed the package or something) she never replied. Sad thing is she has an adorable etsy I'd love to buy from but not with her track record of shipping!

  2. I'm so glad you finally got your adorable tote! Good things do happen to good people. :)

    I would love to do a swap! Anxiously awaiting details.


  3. glad you got that super cute tote!!

    i got my happy ending too...had to contact the sponsor of the giveaway..(like you suggested)....after not getting a response from the girl who hosted the giveaway...they said they never received my info. from they shipped my apron to me right away! i ♥ it!

    isn't it nice when things come out right?!...finally lol

  4. Yay! I am so glad that it worked out! I was just sick that you didn't get the tote that you won! I was ready to send you another tote when I returned from vacation. So happy that the original winning tote was waiting for me and after resending it arrived safely!

    Enjoy it!

  6. I'm so glad you got your bag :) It can be so frustrating dealing with misdeliveries!

  7. I love a happy ending!! Count me in for the mystery swap.

  8. Heather,
    Glad you finally received your adorable tote!! That is wonderful news.
    I hope all is well with you. I was working part-time assisting my sewing instructor teaching kids how to sew at the camp nearby.
    E is going into surgery tomorrow morning for a torn bicep/labrum.
    Take care and talk to you soon.
