Such a lovely autumn word. Such an appropriate word to describe the array of prizes that were donated by our supremely generous 12 x 12 in 2012 member authors. A cornucopia of prizes. (You know I am fanatical about collective nouns, right???)
Meanwhile, you are all just asking yourselves, WHEN will she FINALLY tell us who the winners of these lovely prizes are?? Is it MEEEE?
Well, wait no more my lovelies. Here are the winners, announced in the order the prizes were donated. Once again, HUGE thanks to everyone who donated prizes for our end-of-summer 12 x 12 celebration. The more I do with the 12 x 12 challenge, the more I’m convinced the participants make the world go round. You guys are awesome!!
