If you have not finished commenting,
Welcome to the Wrap-Up Day for our 2021 Cat Lovers Hop. TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO COMMENT ON PROJECTS AND TO PLAY IN THE DAILY GAMES. I know a number of you have already finished....but I haven't!! lol...
The project Link-Up closed on Saturday, Oct. 30, but to give as many of you as possible a chance to comment on the projects I kept comments open several extra days. Comments close at 11:59 pm Pacific today, Wednesday, Nov. 3rd.
You also have through today to participate in the Daily Games that you will find on each of last week's posts. Each day's game comes with a special opportunity to win the wonderful digital image of the day from Ike's Art! So if you have not caught up on the Daily Games, this is the day to do that!
SUPER COMMENTER PRIZE DRAWING:
If you manage to make it all the way through the Link-up and comment on every single project, you can link up your name at the bottom of this post to be in the special drawing for the Super Commenter Prize.
NOTE: I realize that some are not members of all the different platforms (FB, IG, Flickr, SCS, etc) where our Hoppers might post projects and will not be able to comment on those projects. You can still qualify for the Super Commenter drawing IF YOU MENTION IN THE COMMENTS BELOW which platforms you are not a member of, but that you commented on EACH of the other projects.
VERY IMPORTANT: To be eligible for the Super Commenter prize, you MUST comment on all the projects AND link up your name in the linky tool below.
I have several more things to talk about before I wrap up the Wrap-Up Post! lol...
1. Many of you have missed a long-time Hop regular, our cat-loving friend Sue D this year.
We all have admired Sue's craft fair projects in the past...wonderfully creative key chains, altered notebooks, little cat purses, etc. Sue is doing fine, but her dear hubby has been very ill with Covid. He is just recently home from the hospital after an extended stay and is slowly improving. Sue hopes to be able to stop in to the Hop and make a few comments before the day is out. I hope she can. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her husband for his full recovery. ❤
2. Do you already own some of the prizes that our amazing sponsors are offering this year?I listed all the sponsors and prizes on the Main Hop Page and asked Hoppers to mention in the comments if they already own the prize. I TRY not to award a prize to a Hopper that they already have....but I can't guarantee I will always catch your comment, especially if it is anywhere other than under that post! Some Hoppers have told me on the Daily Posts that they already have one of the featured sponsor prizes, but please I NEED THAT INFO on the Main Hop Page. Thank you.
3. I am confused. Do you want to be in the drawings for digis or not?
Some of you are sending me mixed messages! So maybe we are both confused!! LOL... I understand that not everyone uses digital images for one reason or another. That's why one of the questions on the Sign-In page is whether you wish to be considered for digi prizes or not.
Here's the problem: Some of you who say "No digis, please" still sign up for the daily digital prize from Ike's Art. I don't know quite what to make of that. Either you have decided that the particular digi is sooooo cute that you actually DO want that image....or you are confused about what the Daily Game link-up is for. Additionally, some people link up to the Daily Game linky but do not answer or participate in the game! I try to be clear with my instructions, but I see some changes need to be made.
FYI....This is how I handle this situation: When I run random.org for those who linked up for the Daily Games, I check to make sure the lucky winner actually commented and answered the question of the day....or at least tried! :) If they did, I assume they DO want the prize whether or not they said "No digis, please" on their Sign-In.
4. Gift Codes, International Shipping, Digital Images, and Physical Prizes.On the Sign-In page, one of the questions I ask is what country you live in. Some of our lovely sponsors can only afford to reliably ship physical prizes within their own country, so they offer gift codes that can be redeemed from anywhere in the world. But there is still the problem of the winner paying for the high cost of international shipping.
My solution is this: If you are drawn as the lucky winner of a gift code to a company that is not in your country, I will check to see if you said "Digis Okay" when you signed in and then check to see if that company offers digis. If they do and you are okay with digis, I will award that prize to you. Otherwise, that prize will go to someone else and I hope your name comes up again for a prize that is acceptable. Naturally, you can use your gift code for any product (physical or digital) in the sponsor's online catalog, but this will give winners a "No shipping cost" option. ❤
Okay....speech over. lol...
That's all for the Wrap-Up Post. Finish up those comments and then link up below to be in the draw for the Super Commenter prize. Don't forget to tell me in the comments if you couldn't comment on particular platforms.
Thanks so much for all your great participation in this year's Hop. I hope you had as much fun as I did. I will get going on running all the random numbers.....it is quite a process with this many prizes!! Hopefully, I'll get the Winners Post up in a few days. Be watching for it!! See you then.
NOTE: This Linky apparently has died. Please leave me a comment below if you commented on all the projects. Sorry for the inconvenience!
