I'm seeing spots!

This week Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer is hosting her second edition of Works-For-Me-Wednesday: Backwards Day! Once again, she has charged us to ASK for tips rather than give them.

Oh, how I hope that at least one of you can give me a tip on how to fix this problem:
We think that it is an anti-bacterial hand sanitizer gel stain. Twister recently sneaked a bottle from my purse. I found the almost empty tiny, little bottle and this BIG spot on the coffee table! Yikes!!!

The sad thing...we don't really ever even use the gel. We're soap and water kind of people. However, some activities call for the stuff when you know that there will be no soap and water around come hand washing time!

Please help me!
We also have a lovely ring on another table. I think the culprit was Mr. Brownstone, but he will never 'fess up to it!

Or winners as it so happens!

I promised that at least one person would win a personalized clipboard similar to this one
in the Fall, Y'all! Bloggy Giveaway hosted by Shannon from Rocks In My Dryer:

~~~~This is the back!~~~~

Using this random number generator,
#66 was chosen as the lucky number! Congratulations to Heather H! I had also personally and privately determined that if the entries reached 100, I would hold another drawing for another clipboard. (A girl has to have some secrets!) The second lucky number was #47. Congratulations to Emily!

I also had additional prizes hidden in my other blog entries. Sadly, the predetermined comment number of 23 for comments made beginning on October 29 on any single blog entry other than the giveaway was not reached. However...I would like to congratulate Sarah for commenting on the correct predetermined post. Thanks for your kind words, Sarah, and thank you for reading my blog! You have your choice between a clipboard, or this beautiful handmade pen!Winners will be contacted by email. If there is no response by Sunday evening, November 11, I will generate a new number for another winner.

Thank you so much to all who participated in my first giveaway! I hope you will come back and play next time; and better yet, I hope that you will come back as a reader!!! I just might have to host another giveaway on my own!

Please accept my apologies for the delay in this announcement. Our internet has been out since Sunday morning!
