Winner and some patriotism

So the ever trusty Random.org did it again. We have yet another winner and this is now the second time that #1 has been chosen!
Who is lucky number one? Well, that would be a previous artist who's done a giveaway here (look at that!)
Pippi Langstrumpf from Under the Shade of a Bonsai Tree!
It looks like her generosity is being repaid. Here's what she had to say:
"What gorgeous items. Love the colours and designs. I also love the Helena illustration. I've been searching for a new notebook so this prize would be perfect." Congrats! I will be contacting you shortly.
A huge thank you to 315thomas for offering such a wonderful giveaway. I so adore your imagery and I wish you the best of luck for your business.

You're probably wondering what the "patriotism" part of this post is about. I thought I'd celebrate this fourth of July with a new dress: a red, white and blue dress to be exact.
Purple label-Women's Olive Oil Sailor Tank Dress
$34
My nickname used to be "Olive Oil" so I thought it was fitting. (This was a long time ago and if anyone attempts to use this nickname, I will find you and kick you in the shin.)
This is my little act of patriotism, and no the dress will not come in time for the 4th. Oh well. In this dress, I can be patriotic any day I want, so there.

I love that dress, so cute! Olive Oil is a sweet nickname...they called me "Jolly Green Giant" b/c when I was little my blonde hair used to turn green from the chlorine in the pool & I was really tall...maybe I'll bring that nickname back today!
