Enchanted Doll Birthday contest-gift opening

This is the best Christmas ever!

Uhm, I mean Birthday- it’s the best Birthday ever! Feels like Christmas though, since I’ve never gotten so many birthday gifts.

I wasn’t going to open the entries until the contest deadline of March 13th, but then I thought about it and realized that we would never be able to process, document, judge and display all the gifts on the website in only three days! Therefore, I had decided to begin opening them now, 2-3 gifts a day so as to not get totally overwhelmed when it comes time to choose the winner. Yeah, sure it would have been awesome to open them all on my birthday, but I don’t think it would be fair to contestants because I wouldn’t have time to do it properly all in one day. So, my birthday came early this year and will last for two weeks as I open new surprises every day.

The gifts are beautiful. I’m loving them all, but I’m already wondering what I’ve gotten myself into, because I will somehow have to choose the best one……it will be a very, very tough call. I almost wish I hadn’t started the contest just so that I wouldn’t be in this position of having to choose only one winner out of so many fantastic entries.

My 28th birthday continues….best birthday ever!

    I’m confused, is the contest deadline March 13th? Or is that the mailing deadline? If the mailing deadline was extended, wouldn’t the contest deadline be extended as well?
