Winner Announcement Update!! ~ Mad Tea Party Giveaway ~ Blog Hop

Since I arrived to the Mad Tea Party late, not many were able to enter my contest so the odds of winning were pretty good.  The names of participants were written on strips of paper, shaken up in a bag, and one was chosen from the pile.  

And the winner for this year's Mad Tea Party giveaway from M Ann M Creations of a Alice Deluxe Surprise Ball is....


Thanks to the fans who left comments!


In celebration of this years Mad Tea Party hosted by, I am offering another fabulous giveaway! Anyone who leaves a comment on this post with a link back to their blog or website is entered to win a Watermelon Party Shop Surprise Ball called Alice.  You don't have to be a Mad Tea Party goer to enter, but I'd still love to meet fans of my work!

Contest ends on Saturday, July 20.  Winner will be announced on Sunday, July 21st.

Watermelon Party's Alice in Wonderland is a combination paper doll and surprise ball. Alice sits on a surprise ball that has 8 special prizes inside. Alice can be separated from the ball of prizes she sits upon so you can enjoy the surprise ball without destroying the doll. She can be posed in a seated position on a shelf or desk for you to enjoy for years to come. 

Alice is made completely of crepe paper with painted accents. Her arms have a wire armature so they can be carefully posed to hold a flower, small toy or mini teacup. Alice is made for decorative purpose only and is not intended for play.

Alice is available for purchase at my Watermelon Party Etsy shop here:
