It said, "Congratulations, Joy!" and I thought, "yeah, there are other Joys in the world, don't get your hopes up!"
I opened the link, and there was my Pin and picture!!! I couldn't believe it!

Thanks to everyone who entered our recent Pinterest contest...we loved seeing the boards where you pinned our goodies, plus we found so many new friends too!
And the winning pin was...
Congratulations, Joy...check your inbox for our email! She'll receive a $50 Gooseberry Patch gift certificate...."
I was SOOOO HAPPY!!!
I started to check my email...sorted all of it by GooseberryPatch, but those were just the normal emails. I started to get anxious that I may have deleted THE email by mistake!
I finally found the right one this morning, sent out the day before the Facebook entry, under a different email address @GooseberryPatch. Boy, was I kicking myself! Guess I'd better keep up with those pesky missives I've signed up for, huh?! LOL!
I can't wait to get the gift certificate! I love the Gooseberry Patch books, got at least two, maybe three (can't remember for sure), from my MIL at Christmas last year! Great crafting ideas and recipes, and now I can add to my collection!
Thank you so much JoAnn and Vickie! I'm one happy camper!!! :-))
