It's time to announce the winners from the contests held in May. I'm about a week later than I wanted with this, but better late than never. I've started announcing the blog contest winners once a month, and it seems to be working well. Giveaways actually take quite a bit time of time to organize and conduct. Choosing the winners is one of my least favorite things to do, mostly because I wish everyone could win. Thanks to all that have entered and continue to comment on my Brimful Curiosities posts. I use Random.org to pick the winners. As always, all winners have or will be contacted by email. After the initial email they have 72 hours to get back to me before another winner is chosen.
