It's good to be back - I've missed you all! I've taken a little time to focus on some urgent life stuff (life stuff sucks)...there's a LOT still to figure out and problems yet to solve, but I've made a good start and that counts for somethin'. I'll delve more into such matters when I get back to posting properly (later this week, I promise!) but THIS post is AAAAAAAALL about the giveaway of my li'l birdie book!Thank you all so much for entering and for your gorgeous and lovely comments! I wish I could send something to ALL of you, but there's only one birdie book and only one winner.
To make the winner selection fair I enlisted the help of a professional - The Colonel! Well, it's not like I see PEOPLE on a regular basis, and The Colonel is the Emperor of everything (he wants a Death Star for his birthday - armed and fully operational.....watch out Ewoks! Mooowahahaha!). I printed off all of your names and cut the paper into strips like so -
....then rolled them up, like so -
...then with the addition of a teeny spray of catnip foofy cat attracter I dropped them as an offering before the Lord Of All Adorableness himself -
There was a lot of sniffing and snuffling and not a little drooling...
....then eventually one very sucked paper twisty straw was selected -
Hey presto! Took a bit of convincing and fairly substantial bribery with nippity treats but I wrangled it away from his whiskery mush and the winner is......*drumroll*
Congatulations! You are the new owner of the birdie book! I'll send you an email/message and sort out postie details with you so that it'll be with you as soon as post persons permit.
Because I labour under colossal amounts of guilt that there's only one winner here I plan to do a giveaway every month - that will increase the chances for anyone who wants to win free goodies! I'll be back later this week with some fun finds from mum's house - proof positive that I've not always been the most artistically gifted person - and some catch-ups to share with you. In the meantime, thank you again to everyone who entered the giveaway and to every lovely reader and visitor - The Colonel and I love you squillions! Sending out some hugs to y'all xxxxx
