Shoe Stories & The Winner of the Shoe-La-La & Giveaway!

Happy weekend, everyone! First of all, I want to apologize for not getting this post up sooner. It took me a while to find some time to tally up all the entries and then draw a winner, and it didn't help that so many of you told such great stories about your most memorable shoes - I felt compelled to re-read them, nearly every time I looked at the post. There were sweet stories, funny stories, sad stories, and hahaha, downright painful stories (Caroline C, I'm still wincing, when I think of you wearing size 4 shoes with size 8 feet - ouch!!! And oh, spatulater - a slip on the ice and a chipped tooth!). There were lots of jelly shoe stories (hahaha, I also remember having jelly shoes and loving them - and I seem to remember having a couple different pairs!) So thanks so much to everyone for entering and telling such great shoe stories.

So, without further ado, the winner of a copy of Shoe-La-La and a $50 giftcard is:

Jessie C. (JC)!

Jessie, please contact me via email (carol.prettythings {at} within 48 hours, so we can get you your prize. If we don't hear back from Jessie C., we'll redraw and repost a new winner.

All valid entries were tabulated in the order received in the comments section of the giveaway post. The final list of entries can be viewed here.  And a screen capture of the random number generator is below:

Thanks again to everyone for entering and as always, for reading! And thanks to Scholastic for sponsoring this great giveaway.
