The awesome #blisshome twitter party - sponsors, prizes and winners!

Two days ago, Barbara and I were chatting (on twitter, of course) about doing an I’m-not-at-Blissdom-Canada twitter party. Amanda jumped in and offered to contact some people about prizes. What started out as a way to have an excuse to chit-chat about whatever became quite an event with sponsors, prizes and a ton of people who participated. It was a great time. 

I promised some of the attendees that I’d list out our sponsors, so here they are, along with the prizes and who won. I’ll be in touch with each of the winners today to tell them how to obtain their prize.

I want to say a huge thank you on behalf of Amanda, Barbara and I to all the sponsors for donating prizes and also to everyone who spent their Friday night hanging out with us on Twitter. It was a really great time - thanks for joining in!
