{SEPTEMBER WINNERS}

We've got SEPTEMBER winners and top picks to announce -- and there are plenty of them!
Winners of all the blog hops in September are also in this post. 

An important note about our winners post: starting this month, I'll announce all winners (challenges and blog hops) of the previous month in one post published on or before the 10th of the following month. I need to make this change because it's a lot of extra work to do separate winners posts and I need my sanity ;o) It also makes it easier to disburse prizes, knowing that by the 23rd or so of the month, all prizes would have been emailed (for gift certificates) or mailed out (for products).

All winners have up to 10 days to claim their prizes -- that is plenty of time. I also need to be a little more "strict" when it comes to claiming prizes in order to be fair to those who do win and claim prizes within 10 days. In the past even if prizes were claimed much later, I still gave out the prizes. But that often created logistical issues for me, as well as extra work. So if you are a regular player in our challenges or participant in our blog hops and special events, please consider following our blog, even signing up to receive email notifications when new posts are published. You'll find those links on the right side bar. Thanks so much for understanding and I appreciate each one of you who continues to support STAMPlorations -- whether you're a regular challenge player, blog hop participant, stamp club member, or customer.

Okay, now enough wafflin' from me. Let's get this winners post rolling!

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Thursday, October 20. Prizes not claimed by October 20 will be forfeited.
