Finally, the winner!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Photography

As I mentioned in the last post, I decided to do a random draw for the winner of the HP printer/scanner instead of collecting a group of judges and trying to decide which we liked best.

There were so many sweet photos – so many sweet faces. Thanks you everyone for submitting your photos!

The winner is ….




Megan !

I am so glad that you changed the format for choosing a winner because there were some really great pictures! I think I am most excited about the scanner, now I can put all of those awful pictures of my youth, taken with my “disk” camera up on my blog.
Thanks for randomly picking me!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
