Here are the stories and links to where everything can be read or viewed on MPTT for those of my friends who may be interested.

HUGE THANKS go out to all of the organizers of the MPTT Tree and Flower Awards who have worked so very hard behind the scenes to make this possible. I am absolutely thrilled and humbled to have been nominated in the first place and to have actually won for some of my work. To those who voted for me and for the other winners, thank you for taking the time to do so. Recognition by peers is always a joy!

Congratulations! :)))

Please check - because I can't check now and won't be able for the next few hours - did you take the wrong banner (3rd place instead of 1st), or did I make the wrong banner? The thing is, all together I made more than 250 banners, so mistakes are quite possible; Linda warned me yesterday that, for one of her categories, I had made two 2nd place banners and none for the 3rd. *thud* Let me know if I have to make the correct one and forward it to Dawn. ;)
The Third Place Finwe banner was for "Tales From the Other Side". I didn't see any banners for artwork, so I haven't downloaded that yet. There was another one (actually several more) that I didn't find, but my master list is at home and I am at work. It's really no sweat, the banners are beautiful and I'm loving the ones I've got so far.

Thanks for the positive strokes :-)

Oh, I see. Then it is probably that Dawn hasn't uploaded everything yet. ;) I mean, yes, I had a lot of work with 250+ banners, but she also has a lot of work uploading all of them. She'll probably finish that these days. ;)

As I recall, she said she would be without internet for a day or two. No problem.

Thank you so much (and thank Pippin too, I can hear her little tail thumping from all the way up here - LOL).

Thanks! You've been a cheerleader for my writing for so long, I want you to know how very much I appreciate it!

Congratulations!

*and playing on the classic radio station behind me is the theme to Star Wars... somehow appropriate for winners!* :)
Thank you, you're very kind. You had some wonderful stories nominated and placed quite nicely too. Well deserved "Congratulations" back at you!

- Erulisse (one L)
Thank you! I'm always amazed that people other than myself like my stories but this is just one more indication that I need to keep working on my writing skills and improve. Always good to have goals :-)

Thank you, thank you, thank you. *bowing*

I hope that today was better for you than yesterday. I can hunt up other funny things for you to laugh over if not...

- Erulisse (one L)
Yes thanks, feeling better, and consequently have moved on from "funny" to "creepy French people" today. X)
Thank you so much. One of the better things that has happened to me over this year has been getting to know you a bit. If I can keep improving my writing and strengthening my friendships, I'll be a winner all around!
