I was so excited when I was informed on the 3rd of this month that I'd won a prize pack from last month's blog hop! Well, it's been 3 weeks since then & I know CHA took alot of time & attention...so I'm just wanting to know from some of you other previous winners how long it was before you saw the package arrive at your home?

Three weeks seems more than enough time. I would reply to the email and ask when you should expect it.

I have seen them take up to a month. It seems to be very slow. But, its worth the wait!!!!

I agree with Shih tzu Mommy that it couldn't hurt to ask. I've had numerous prize winnings from various sites get lost in the shuffle and I'm sure that nobody would wrong you for checking back after 3 weeks!

Enjoy your goodies, when they do come!

How do you find out if you won a prize from the challenges or other events here? PeaMail? E-mail? Checking back in to the class page? I know for CHA there was a list posted, not sure about any of the others.

I've won prizes from Tim Holtz and Graphic 45 and got them within a couple days but I've also won a prize from someone who designs really cool digital stamps and the prize was a really cool colored piece and despite contacting them a couple times, I never received it and another time I won something off a blog, the prize was coming from a company and it took several, thinking 3+ months to get it. She apologized profusely, wasn't her fault. I would contact them and ask.

I wasn't notified personally. It was announced on the blog on 1/3/13 since it was a win from the blog hop, I guess. I'm not sure how you'd be notified for winning the other things, like challenges (since I can't ever seem to find the time to complete a challenge in time!) I think it may have to do with the way your account is set up with your preferred notification.
Thanks for the feedback! I'll give it another week before I ask 'cause I do know they've been pretty busy lately.

Get in contact with the person hosting the blog hop and ask. I have won 2 blog hops from Echo Park and it never takes more than 1 week ( and sometimes less) to get the collection. I was emailed and asked for shipping information and choice. I love them and it was so fun to win!

I have the same concerns with my Webster's Pages Project challenge prize that was announced on Dec. 20th. I don't want it to get lost in the shuffle either. I know that it has been busy since the 1st of the year and CHA. I don't mind waiting, I guess I just wish I knew if it was sent out.
