Finally the time has come to find out who wins my Blogoversary Giveaway and gets to recieve a parcel with some of my favorite things!
To make sure that the choosing was impartial I used the Random Integer Generator, so here’s the result…

The first random number that came up was 1. The first comment was made by Shelby (HoneyB):
Ok Marthe, I am not entering because I just won the cookbook and you also sent me some awesome chocolate too! I want to wish you a happy blogoversary though and I look forward to you guesting on my blog while I am on vacation! ­čÖé

Since Shelby didn’t enter the giveaway I made the generator pick another number….
