And the winners ARE:

The random generator ground and shook. It rocked and bounced, then spit and spat. It gave me four numbers. That was the easy part. Then I had to count through all the names until I got to the correct ones. Then I counted a second time just to be sure I counted right the first time. Since I got the same names twice, I was either right both times or wrong the exact same way both times. Regardless, these are the winners of my OWOH blog giveaway.

OH WAIT!!! Bleubeard got chased up a tree. We have to wait for him. He wants to share in the surprise.

OH NO!! He's going the wrong way. Bleubeard, you need to come down out of the tree, not further out on the branches.
Come on, fella. This caravan won't wait forever and these lovely bloggers want to know who won.

Finally!!! Ok, I guess we're ready.
We are ready, aren't we??? Then let's get this party going.

Number 4 or The Wig goes to Kathy L, who wrote:
Awesome collage and assemblage give aways! I want you to know that the comment you made on my piece that was donated to a breast cancer fund raiser meant a lot to me. Art should move us to feel something, no matter what the feeling. Thank you!

Congrats to your winners!

This is my third year doing the OWOH and most us only asked for a blog addy so we could go by and tell them that they won. Otherwise it way too difficult for everyone to get back to all 900+++ blogs.
I'm sure your winners are thrilled!
