Apron Fest '09 Winner

I finally drew a name for the
Apron Fest '09 Giveaway,
or should I say a Clone Trooper and
Princess Snow White drew names.
First, Thank you to all that entered.
I browsed each site that provided a link,
& I was inspired and delighted by many.
I have been overwhelmed by the kind words
and memories of aprons you all have said!
For more memories of aprons visit
or click the button below.
Make sure you have a tissue or two,
all the portraits and voices made me tear up.


The first winner
that was chosen is...
Damaris said...
my apron memory- I grew up in Brazil. My grandma has this huge kitchen and makes really good food. She always wears an apron. She would let me wear her apron if I ate all my food. I know love aprons and send her a new one every year for her birthday.


You may choose from the full Denim Apron

or

the Half apron with the embroidered pocket:)
Felizidades Damaris!!!


The second winner...
And I must say why I chose to have a second winner.
After Apron Fest started,
I received a call that my friend Carol R. was
going under surgery for breast cancer.
We all prayed that the Dr.'s get everything.
Apparently, she will have to go through Chemotherapy.
& it looks like she'll beat it.
Carol is a wonderful friend and I have never heard her say anything wrong about anyone, expect her first husband, who she survived domestic abuse from.
If she can beat the odds of abuse,
and now have a loving husband who is by her side,
along with friends who love her,
she can beat this!
We have a long road ahead of us and lot's of prayers.
So, I decided to make a breast cancer awareness half apron,
with a ruffled pocket.

I dedicate this apron to Carol R.,
those fighting or survived breast cancer, and in fact, any cancer.
So, the second winner is:

Thank you for the chance to win one of your aprons. And thank you for the story about your grandma. I miss mine so much. I wish my husband could of met her. I have memories the most at Christmas time. Making cookies and fudge. I now make everything with my 6 yr. old granddaughter. I think its neat to have different aprons because it can change you personality. Come check my blog contest out as well tomorrow. www.lilbitoldlilbitnew.com
