  55. Jacqueline Griffin

    Congrats ladies! You’re boards are fab!

  56. Danielle

    This judging was in poor taste. I can’t believe that people who only had six or eight pins won. It clearly shows that they spent hardly anytime on their board. Congrats Shawna your board looked fabulous and deserved to win.

    • Amanda

      I am sorry you didn’t win. I am not sure there was any board with 6 pins, but we listed the rules in the post. There wasn’t a minimum or maximum. We are always running giveaways, so keep an eye out for the next one!

  57. Susan Wilder

    Hi, Congratulations to all the Winners!! Question: Is the Susan listed above “Susan Wilder” or the other Susan who also participated?

    Haven’t seen an email yet, so I was just wondering? Thanks so much for a great giveaway! I truly had a great, fun time creating my board!
