Default A huge THANK YOU to WI!

Well, I got a very nice shock today when I got online.

As it turned out, I won the Magical Retriever - not because I was a design diva, but because there were so many great designs, they had to go to a Plan B to choose a winnder - via a drawing method. Not considering myself to be a generally lucky person, this alone is a total shock factor!

Also, this is actually a very sad time of year for me for personal reasons that I won't get into, so this was also a much-needed "pick-me-up". It was a shot in the arm of hope, happiness and just plain fun that was very much needed.

I entered the contest because I enjoy participating in the WI events. I believe it helps to build community, as well as just plain being fun to do. I honestly never expected to win, only to contribute my "two cents" towards the end purpose of getting some new design ideas.

As I was reading through the thread Friday, I was in awe of all the great design ideas that everyone offered up. There were so many wonderful, useful things that were thought of - the colorfully-drawn designs, things that obviously had so much time, effort and love poured into them - it was so great!

I know that WI truly appreciated each and every entry. The ideas were fantastic.
I hope NO ONE thinks their time and efforts were wasted in any way! It seems like there were some hurt feelings and a lot of disappointment. That is going to probably happen in any contest, just by the nature of even holding a contest. But, I hope everyone will remember that just by entering, you participated in a group activity with people who you care about and with whom you share a common love - Webkinz! I know Justin and Wendy will enjoy trying to figure out which design to try out next - you guys surely gave them food for thought for a while now!

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you so much to WI for yet another fun contest with great prizes. WI puts in a lot of time to make this a fun site for everyone, and I think they succeed beyond our expectations.

Thank you again - I really look forward to my new family member - it will be even more beloved than if it had been purchased and found, because of the way it came into my Webbie family - through an amazing group of fellow fanatics! : )

I wasn't sure if they were looking only for merchandise or for new WI designs entirely, so I did both! : )
