PLEASE READ EVERYTHING HERE!
Thank you everyone for all of your supportive comments. In an effort to continue to keep the game fair, we will start accepting responses on Friday, April 6th at 1PM EST. This is giving almost 15 hours notice so readers in different time zones will have time to see this. We do not want to direct you here again to enter the contest since we cannot ensure that the crash won’t happen again given the amount of traffic. Because of that, you must email us your completed sentence(s) at the gmail address below at 1pm EST (Friday, April 6th). If you have left your answer in the comment section on prior blog posts or in emails to Amy Atlas Events, you will need to resend your answer to the email address below. If you send the answer before 1pm EST, we will not consider it for purposes of this contest. PLEASE DO NOT COME HERE AT 1PM EST. IT COULD ONLY CRASH OUR SITE AGAIN.
THE FIRST PERSON WITH THE CORRECT SENTENCE(S) FROM EACH WEBSITE THAT SENT YOU TO THIS HUNT WILL WIN THE KITCHENAID MIXER. IF YOU NEED TO LOOK AT THE RULES AGAIN, YOU CAN LOOK HERE. THE ONLY THING THAT HAS CHANGED FROM THE ORIGINAL RULES ARE (1) THE TIME AND (2) WHERE YOU ARE EMAILING. THESE WERE DUE TO UNFORESEEABLE EVENTS BECAUSE OF THE WEB CRASH.
We will notify the winners by Monday, April 9th by email.
Thank you for participating, everyone. We hope that you enjoyed hunting down the Pastel Pretty photos from Sweet Designs. More importantly, we hope that you enjoyed learning about other blogs along the way.
Wow, you all have been so supportive. Although our team was prepared for big traffic, I did not expect the amount that came in. This post was supposed to be the post where you would enter your code word sentence(s). For the last two hours our site was down and we couldn’t put up a post. I KNOW how patient you all have been. I really appreciate it. I know some of you have been waiting by the computer and refreshing. I’ve been doing the same. We’ve also been on the phone with our web person and web server for over two hours. Now that the site is back up, I don’t want to open it up yet because many were confused when they couldn’t get on. Rather, I’d prefer to give a new time for tomorrow so that everyone has enough notice. I think this is the fairest way to handle this. Some of you have said that I should do a random contest. Unfortunately, this contest has to be a contest based on skill and not picked at random. Even though the site is back up, I really want to iron out the kinks so my site doesn’t go back down. If you want to continue playing, I’m going to ask you to come back to give the answer from your hunt tomorrow. Some of you have asked whether I can give you a sense of timing. I will put an update on timing in this post to give everyone notice. I’m hoping that we can open this contest back up by 4pm EST tomorrow (Friday, April 6th).
On a similar note, you all have the clues now to put the sentence(s) together. You will now have more time to make sure you are confident with the answer. I know some of you were confused about sentence vs. sentences. Punctuation/grammar does not matter. All that matters is that the sentence(s) is put together so there is a cohesive message. If you have any questions, post a comment (which will still be private) and we’ll continue to try to answer them.
Again, a huge thank you to all of you that have been supportive. Above is the full shot of Pastel Pretty table of Sweet Designs to hold you over until tomorrow.
