You should know by now that my ability to announce winners for my giveaways are rarely on time. But this time I think I have out done myself by leaps and bounds. Over a month late with the results. Incredible.

Kinda disappointed with the turnout for this one, thought more people would be interested to take part, so interesting to see what really 'turns' people on to participate in giveaways. Will stick to my usual nerdy/geeky 'prizes' next time round. :)
