Ginny, that's so nice of your friend. If she hasn't already gotten it, how about giving her the regular version of the See No Humbug set? Aloing with a pack of the 3-hook sets? Then she could have both the regular and colorway versions plus the hooks to hang them together.

I'd give up chocolate but I'm no quitter.

Excellent suggestion, Melanie!!! Now to find out that she hopefully hasn't purchased them already.

I got a call yesterday that I won something at the store in Leavenworth where my mother shops often. I have to go in and bring something to show how old I am, and the message almost made it sound like I have to tell them when I'll be in. They also told me I have a limited time to pick up my ornament, so I think I will be going there on Sunday after I take my husband to the airport.

My mother picked up her prize at the store at Crown Center last Sunday. She said that she could tell that the box had been opened, and the clerk at the store couldn't tell her anything about the colorway Toymaker Santa that she won. The box has the gold triangle in the corner, and inside was a regular Santa. I called the store on Monday and talked to the manager. She said that they had put the prizes out on display until someone decided that they should be put away. Apparently they were out long enough for someone's sticky fingers to make a trade. I won a Forsythia colorway there, and mine is the real colorway (I checked after I talked to my mom). After I explained to the manager what must have happened (she admitted that even though she's been a manager there for a year she didn't understand the difference between the ornaments with the gold sticker and the ones without it), she told me that they are going to try to get the colorway ornament for my mom. They're getting a new Hallmark rep so they think it might take a month. My mom and I are happy that they are trying to make it right. She also won a Forsythia at another store, so she's pretty happy about how it all came out.

What a disappointment that the colorway was switched. I hope it works out. And they can make it right for you guys.
Good luck !

I went to St. Cloud during Ornament Premiere Weekend to visit some friends and I won at both the hallmark stores that I registered down there and my friend Ben picked up my prizes for me and when he came up north this weekend I got my prizes.

I won the Mary's Angels colorway and Cordelia. Don't know what i'm going to do with Cordelia since my mom has the wreath and ornaments already; however, I think i'm going to trade my Mary's Angels colorway away for a couple of other ornaments that i'd like to have instead.

This makes: 1 Poinsettia Fairy (which I gave to my mom and returned the one that mom got for cash)
1 Mary's Angels Colorway
1 Cordelia

Not too bad.

I won the Mary's Angel Colorway and the Ice cream truck ornament. First time I have won a colorway.
