The contest for the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival is over, and I have duly entered all of the comments from each day that the contest ran. I stipulated that those who came back and commented on subsequent posts would get an extra shot at the prize. I was hoping that the winner would be someone who would appreciate what they had won, because it really is a beautiful, meaningful piece of art.

To determine the winning comment, I went to the trusty random.org and used the random integer generator.

It selected number 60. And commenter number 60? Drum roll, please…

Is Teeni! I couldn’t be more thrilled! Congratulations, Teeni. Now email me your snail mail info, and that puppy will be in the mail.


I have a different kind of image for you to puzzle this week. I mentioned earlier that I had begged two photographers from my mailing list for images that I could use, and this one is from Jill in Phoenix. You should go and check out her other amazing images.She just made a big sale to a corporate client, but she isn’t all snooty about it. I fell in love with this image and wanted to ask her if I could use it as wallpaper on my desktop, but she offered it as a puzzle. I’m going to give you a preview of it here, and then you can assemble it. Ain’t it purdy?

Did you know that you can pause the puzzle?

teeni Says:

Thanks everyone! Just the fact that it comes from Witchypoo makes it uber-special to me. She could have drawn me a stick figure on a napkin and I’d be happy. But don’t tell her because I don’t want her to change her mind – it’s just icing on the cake that it is such a beautiful piece made by one of Witchypoo’s truly talented buddies. :) :) :)

Oh, and that is a pretty puzzle too! 3:09, I do a little better when I see the picture first. LOL. I guess that is kind of like cheating. But I have no problem with it in this case. ;)

Well done Teeni, I tried to do give a ways but no one would give me their addresses no idea why.

I got 4.28 and must admit I hate seeing the picture before hand and half close my eyes as its distracting and I loose the zone, how about a link to the picture for those who want to cheat.
