We've got winners of our summer challenges to announce. We've also got the winners of the Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop. Thank you to all of you who played in our challenges last month and who participated in our hops.

An important note about our winners post: winners (challenges and blog hops) of the previous month are announced in one post (this one). All winners have 2 weeks to claim their prizes. 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. 

Winners, please claim your prize on or before Tuesday, October 24. Prizes not claimed within 2 weeks will be forfeited -- no exceptions. Please understand that because we have a lot of winners and give away over $200 worth of prizes in the form of products and gift certificates each month, it would take a lot of time to contact the winners individually. I also want to be fair to those who regularly visit our blog and claim their prizes within the time frame given.

When claiming your prize, send an email to sheryruss@gmail.com. Please follow this format in the subject line:
"STAMPlorations September (Winner, Top Pick, Random Draw) - specific challenge here"
e.g., "STAMPlorations September Winner - Theme & Sketch Challenge"

If you are the winner of a tangible/mailable prize, do include your complete mailing address in the email you send, even if I already have mailed to you before. (It saves me time having to look up your address.)

That's it for this post. Congratulations to all the winners! 

To all winners: please wait a week for me to acknowledge your email. I'm currently unable to reply quickly due to limited computer time (my left wrist is on a brace right now because of repetitive stress) so if you don't hear back from me after a week, please re-send your email.

I hope you'll come check back in here tomorrow...we've got another fun mini hop! Oh and do check out our newest challenge -- TAGplorations -- and come play!

Until then, happy crafting!
