Easter Has Been Saved

Easter Has Been Saved

Easter has been saved and the friendly little Easter Chick has been returned to his role helping the Easter Bunny. I’d like to thank everybody for the RT’s on Twitter and for sharing the competition across Facebook. I hope that if you took part in the competition that it was as much fun for you as it was for me creating it.

I want to give a BIG BIG thank you to the following blogs/people, without them this could not have happened. Please afford them the same love you do to my blog and add them to your regular reading material.

Now I guess you would like to find out who was the hero and saved Easter. To my surprise there were 2 entries that came through to me withing seconds of each other. Given this I’ve opted to provide 2 first prize’s, it just wouldn’t be fair to reward one and not the the other.

I’d like to congratulate both Elke and Cailin for winning my first competition.

As for the prize well they will both be receiving a gift parcel in the mail filled with some awesome Australian treats, just like the ones you see below. Thank’s to everyone again, I  look forward to running a new competition for you all in the future.

    What are “Musk Sticks” or do I want to know? Just based on appearances they look interesting….

    Anyways thanks for including me in your contest! I just may not take that chick down. Great idea for a competition. You clearly put a lot of time and effort into it. Congrats to the two winners of those Musk Sticks and delicious chocolate goodness!

      Candice I thought you guys were having some fun but did not realise you were that into it. So those couple of tweets I noticed were just the tip of the iceberg huh.

    P.S. I was going to compete, hoping for vegemite, but I see none in the loot pic. If I had won, would you have given me vegemite exclusively? LOL 🙂

      I would have given you vegemite for sure. I know Cailin will kill me if I send her some but I’m sure Elke won’t mind getting some 🙂

      hehe, Brooke you and those musk sticks 🙂 I should have included a disclaimer that requires them to report back on what they liked and didn’t like lol.

    Gee, Chris, this looks like it was a really clever contest! I wish I’d read about it sooner. I just discovered it minutes ago. I would have participated. Well, next time!

      I’m sorry you didn’t know about it Sabina. It’s hard to get the word out to everybody I think. Defiantly think I’ll do it again next year so I’ll be sure to let you know when.
