And so here we are, eleven days into my contest where I sent drawings of 20 of my favorite critters out to anyone who was a fan of adorable cuteness colored with cheap Crayola markers… and after a very slow start during the first week, another one of my cards is being reported every time I turn around this week! With Angel being added to the list this morning, there are now only four characters still unreported… and what a fascinating final four grouping it is that contains only the Mickey Mouse of my gang, one half of the squirrel pup twins, my newest character who I only introduced exactly 6 months ago and only included in the set since I knew she’d be fun to draw in marker, and of course…
The card that was almost unanimously the most coveted in the entire set, my adorable but flawed unicorn Rainbow Donkey, is still up for grabs! Talk about saving the best for last!
Of the four players who have yet to check in with their card, I know for a fact that two of them have already received it… so at present time, either one of them may be laughing at the very idea that RD is still available. YoungAtFifty mentioned hers arrived yesterday, and I expect she’ll unveil her prize later today. Jennifer from Squirrel Picnic has had her drawing for a while now, but her and her gang of adorable critters are planning a very special reveal post… and since everything Jennifer posts on her blog is totally awesome, I’m willing to wait a little longer to satisfy my curiosity over whether RD fittingly landed in her lap or not…
As for the other two players… well, since one of them lives 10,000 miles away from Nest HQ, it’s understandable that Aunt Sharon’s special card may not have made it to her yet via Wallaby Express. Whereas, Running Heartless needs to take a jog down to her post office and put the pressure on her postmaster… I’m not sure what’s up there.
It’s nevertheless been a lot of fun… maybe even more fun than I expected, tracking who has gone where! And I’m apparently not alone in that boat since pretty much each and every day since it first went up the Monday before last, my 2014 Holiday Cards page under my header has been the most popular post on my blog. Of course, everyone has also been curious to see what the cards they didn’t receive looked like!
Hopefully the remaining four holdouts will become known before Christmas Eve, when I plan on celebrating my third anniversary of Evil Squirrel’s Nest with a special compilation post chronicling this rather entertaining contest, and showing off each and every one of my
20 21 drawings I sent out, and some of the fascinating ways you captured these little works of art for posterity!
Tune in to see where ES, Sully, Kati, and of course, Rainbow Donkey all end up!
