Dear Whoever Cares Who Won The Scavenger Hunt,                                                   July 3rd, 2012

             I had the most wonderful time on vacation maybe even enough to post pictures from the trip later on, but that’s doubtful. I hope you had a most spectacular time while completing my scavenger hunt. If you didn’t, I’m sorry. If you didn’t even complete the hunt or try at all, well, then there’s just no excuse.

While I was on vacation, in Hawaii, I found a really cool pencil case with Little Red Riding Hood on it along with an awesome pen with a good quote on it. After a through search of the rest of the store turned up no other fairytale items, I went browsing in another shop where there were cool looking bookmarks, that were surfboard shaped wood makeup, and had a wood carved bead dangling from a string connected to one end of it. (I apologize for that horrible, long run-on for a sentence). Not only did it have those awesomesauce features but it had tikis cut out of the middle. (I apologize once more for the way I sound like I’m trying to sell you a used car but alas, I am not. Forgive the abundance of uneeded detail.) I bought one to give to the winner of the hunt along with the aforementioned pen, pencil case, and limited edition copy of Once Upon A Time. Ha! You thought you were just getting a book! Oh and don’t forget your handwritten letter by me, eshy.

Now that I (hopefully) got all you guys hyped up by adding to the prizes, the moment where you find out if it is, indeed, you, who has won all the glory. *drumroll:*. The winner is Taya S. King!!! Congratulations! You’ve(obviously) won! I’ll shoot you an email shortly, if I haven’t already, requesting shipping information.

Before I wrap up this post I’d like to thank all the bloggers who made this happen including:

Those people ^^^^ really do deserve a lot of the credit for devoting their time and posts, putting up with me and a ton of emails, to designing the book cover for Once Upon A Time. You should really be a dear and check out their blogs because not only are they awesome for helping me out but because they are some of the most funniest, talented, good natured, gifted, smart, gold hearted, strongest, strangest, thought provoking people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. And that makes them truly awesome.

In all seriousness, you know who else is awesome? John Wayne. You. Yes, you! *points* The person sitting in front of their screen who hopefully completed and entered in my scavenger hunt. I thank you(if you did). I hope you had fun and I hope you continue to read my blog or at least check out the other amazing bloggers that I’ve linked. Please continue to check on eshysletters and who knows, there might be another contest. It probably won’t be as fun or as epic as this one though, because this one is pretty hard to top and it took a TON of work, preparation, emails, Private Messages, near crying moments, and good ole’ wishin’ just to make it work. Don’t fret, I’ll do my best to try to make another awesome contest. It probably won’t be as cool as this one. And it definitely won’t be soon. But alas, stay tuned. Ha! Wow. I just rhymed unintentionally.

One last thing to bug you with(promise this is the last thing) before you carry on with your merry way.

Remember if you won to check your email and reply. Have a good day, everyone! And a good 4th of July! God bless!

-with much love, eshy,
