[CLOSED] October Raffle!! Win an Icon or Snuggly!

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 29, 2013, 8:38 PM

The raffle is now closed!

My very first raffle, and there were a total of 112 participants, wow!

Winning numbers:

#88: :iconwingeddestiny11: *waiting for response*
#107: :iconazaelia-hime:  prize: Raffle Prize Icon / Avatar for Azaelia-hime by Sarilain
#9: :iconlord-hayati: prize: Raffle Prize: Mini Snuggly for Lord-hayati by Sarilain

Congratulations!  I will message you shortly about your prizes!

And to everyone else, thank you so much for participating!  I'm sorry I can't make artwork for each of you, but if you wait a little while, November's raffle will start and I have something special for this one!


IMPORTANT Edit 10-31 1:29 AM (CDT):

I should have done more background research on raffles.  Someone was kind enough to show me this link, and it might be against the rules to host a pay-to-enter raffle:…  Whether or not it's allowed, I think I'll just play it safe and close this part of the raffle.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused.  Even though my account is four years old, I've only become active on deviantArt since two months ago, so I don't know everything!  I will be refunding everyone who entered the paid portion shortly, and as an apology, I will be entering each person into the free raffle automatically, no need for you to make a journal if you already paid.

Thank you so much for your support, and I hope everyone still enjoys themselves!  I'm considering hosting a free raffle every month (it helps me advertise and it rewards my watchers!), continuing random discounted commissions, opening a journal for watcher requests (on the free use art), as well as a number of other ideas.  Hope you're as excited as I am!

Take care and God bless!
