Thank you for making our hearts smile πŸ’–

We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.” – Ray Bradbury, American author & screenwriter

Ray is so spot on, isn’t he?

Well, except for one tiny detail: Sometimes we can feel friendship being formed. For example, we felt that our friendship was being formed with the makers of those rad branded cookies for this year’s RITD the moment we saw the first batch of their entries.

While there can only be one official winner of the $1,000 grand prize devoted to the best branded cookie, in our hearts ALL of the branded cookies were winners.

We’ll forever be thankful to those who made them for making our hearts smile.

And because good keeps on giving good, as a small token of our appreciation for those who made branded cookies, we’d like to give each person a $25 Amazon gift card. (No further action is required on your part β€” the gift card will be emailed to you in the next few days.)

Now, let’s announce the second $1,000 cash prize for the ’17 RITD (for the best branded cookie). And the prize goes to… drum roll, please… Shannon Dana from Clearwater, BC! Congrats! Can we get a β€˜woot!’ for Shannon?! 😊

// You may recognize Shannon Dana’s name, as she was officially named a superfan of RITD a few years ago. //

Thank you again for the fantabulous response to the ’17 RITD, folks! πŸ™Œ

The official countdown until the next RITD has already started on the website.

You all better come out & play again next year, you hear? 😊
