The best comment of my first giveaway

Let me tell you picking the best comment was HORRIBLE! 
WHAT was I thinking doing a giveaway like that! I mean - ME - the person who can not decide what to wear, what to eat, what to order at a cafe, what ice cream to buy ..... I thought that I can DECIDE who wrote the best comment!? Man, nursing really must do some serious damage to the brain!
Unfortunately I did not have enough pins to give to everyone to get out of the whole decision-misery! So I sat - and thought - and sat - and read - and sat - and ... well, so it took a LONG time!
I want to tell you I LOVED reading your comments - just the pressure of having to decide was quite terrible. But your ideas were so so so great! They gave me so many new ideas for the party! Thank you all SO much! I will make sure to write a long long post about the party so if anyone of you guys ever decides to have a Pippi Longstocking party you can come to my blog and find all those great ideas in one place!
(Anything else I could do to say "thank you"?)

But now - you waited so long - the second winner I chose is



This is what she wrote:
I absolutely LOVE Pippi Longstocking!! I remember when I was in grade school going and seeing a Pippi Longstocking play at the children's theatre. I was quite the giddy child :)

Okay, so lets talk PARTY!! :D

I think that your idea for the topsy turvy cake is genius! As far as how the cake should be decorated i think it would be so cute if each cake layer mimicked Pippi's a part of her outfit (mismatched socks, patched dress, bows in her hair, etc).

And of course every party needs to have games, yes? Remember when Pippi cleans the floor with brushes on her feet? How fun would it be to have the girls have sort of race with brushes on their feet! You can also revamp the old fashion game of pin the tail on the donkey by using either her monkey Mr. Nilsson or her horse. You can also let them create their own crazy stories by playing Mad Libs with them (the adults can really get in on this fun too)!

For party favors you can create Pippi braids out of headbands, wire, and yarn. Throw in some crazy mismatched socks and an eye patch and you've got yourself some pretty stinkin' cute Pippis! You can even fashion your own photo station having the kids (and adults) show off their super human strength by lifting extremely heavy objects made of of not so heavy materials. (Think a 100,000 lb barbell made out of a paper towel roll and rubber balls, all painted black)

Hope these ideas help! It was sooo much fun coming up with them!

Maybe I should consult her about all the upcoming parties I have?! :-D

Again, sorry that I could not give more things away - there were so many awesome ideas! I will highlight some more when I will write about the actual party - or preparations of the party. We'll see. Right now I have to post this - and am off to bed. :-)

But I am sure I will do more giveaways in the future. Apart from the pressure to decide - this was really fun! :-)
