Monthly Picks Contest!! It’s like a flashback sorta thing……….

It’s been SOOOOOOOOO long since I did one of these you’ll have to excuse me for being a small bit of late… maybe, you don’t have to but it’d be nice of you to.

I used to do this every month and it was so much fun, so I wanted to bring it back.  I have some lovely friends and people who have followed me through the years that will remember it.  Now I get to bring it back for all those people who might not.

Each month I will pick from a list of names one winner who gets 2500L to spend wherever they want and then a 2500L gift certificate.  This is a handy lil thing, keep it for yourself or give it away to someone you feel is deserving.

In the end it’s all good and great for you yea?  To win you will have to come down to the Roawenwood and click on the lil sign that looks something like this:

2016 Picks Contest July

Then… once you do this you have to have to have to put the Roawenwood in your picks else it won’t matter if you entered or not.  I always check, for that matter the first person that was picked from the list this month DIDN’T have my store in their picks.  I mean ugh, really?  So… I picked someone else. *nods to this* yes we did.

That said this past months picks winner is none other than!!!

Remember it is easy to get in on the chance to win, all you have to do is come down… click the sign at the landing point while keeping Roawenwood in your picks.  The list has once again been wiped clean and everyone has a fresh month to try again.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend so far and thank you so much for playing!





HAPPY NEW YEAR!! We have Winners!

It’s New Years Eve and I’m sure you all have some fabulous plans.  Even if you don’t that’s ok, I’m thinking of you and will be wishing everyone a wonderful year in 2016.  I’m hoping it is better, it seems like 2015 was so hard for so many people and I’ve seen a lot of folks wishing for it to be over.

You never know but here is to being a bit optimistic. Yes?

I would give ya’ll champagne but I seem to be all out.

Now the REAL reason I’m here is to give you the results for the Santa’s letters fun we had the past few weeks. Santa and I went through all the letters, and believe me there was A LOT. More than I ever expected to get.  I had over 140 letters to read and that’s not counting all the ones that just listed an item to have… you just can’t imagine how thrilled I was to see so many people enjoy themselves or to write a little something.  It is something that makes me feel really good. Giving back a lil something to people even if they wouldn’t likely ever show up at my doorstep or in my store! *laughs*

I know… I’m weird like that.

Anyhow……… I decided to break it down into First/Grand prize, second, third, one for most creative, and then 5 honorable mentions.

Thank you everyone for participating.  Some letters were funny and made me laugh out loud, while some were somber or wistful with well wishes for others rather than themselves. Some sobering, some sad, some just hoping for the best and many many little notes that made me smile. I’d like to honestly express my gratitude to everyone for helping lift my own holiday season and make it a little bit more special even as it can be so stressful or so difficult in so many ways and for so many people.

I truly feel blessed.

I wish you and yours no matter who you are, what you might believe, or how you feel a very very prosperous and love filled 2016.  Talk to you soon.
