and the winner is...

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. Here's how I chose the winner...

All of the names in the bowl and then I just had to pick one. I decided to film the momentous occasion.

That's right, Sian is the winner! No, it was not rigged - you saw it on film! Thank you for your little poem, Sian. I'm going to write it out and put it on my wall :o) 

After pulling Sian's name out, I decided that I'd have two winners. So off I went again...

...a bit quicker this time because my 'low battery' light was flashing. And where did the rushing get me? Nowhere. I couldn't open the folded bit of paper! Anyway, Lori, you are also a winner, so leave me a comment with your email address and I'll get some goodies to you.

Stay tuned this weekend... the blue monkey now has some eyes! Oh and I bought some more socks.

Yes, I know, I have a dangerous sock addiction. I just can't get enough of them! At least now I am actually making things out of the yummy socks. Before that, I just had drawers and drawers full of socks. Mmmm socks...


  1. Loving the videos!! Your blog is seriously the best blog ever, it's brilliant :) xx

  2. Easily rigged. We don't actually see you put all our names in there. Perhaps the bowl was filled only with Sian's name. ;)

  3. Yay! Lady Luck was on their side! I wonder what yummy goodies they're getting! And what a lovely blue bowl that is ( might sound weird, but really, it is.) Kind of makes you want to paint/draw a design on it...

    ANYWAYS! Again, happy b-day to Arty Life!

  4. Oh my gosh I am so chuffed! And I don't care if it was rigged [Patois, I thought you loved me ;o)] it is a book and book about crafty stuff no less. :o)

    Could you throw in one of Mr Pippa's Famous Lemon Drizzle Cakes too? Pleeease?

  5. Nelson Mandela is sitting at home watching the telly when he hears a knock at the door. When he opens it, he is confronted by a little Chinese man, clutching a clip board and yelling, "You sign! You sign!" Behind him is an enormous truck full of car exhausts. Nelson is standing there in complete amazement, when the Chinese man starts to yell louder. "You sign! You sign!" Nelson says to him, "Look mate, you've obviously got the wrong bloke. Push off", and shuts the door in his face. The next day he hears a knock at the door again. When he opens it the little Chinese man is back with a huge truck of brake pads. He thrusts his clipboard under Nelson's nose, yelling, "You sign! You sign!" Mr Mandela is getting a bit hacked off by now, so he shoves the little Chinese man back, shouting: "Look, push off ! You've got the wrong bloke! I don't want them!" Then he slams the door in his face again. The following day, Nelson is resting, and late in the afternoon, he hears a knock on the door again. On opening the door, there is the same little Chinaman thrusting a clipboard under his nose, shouting "You sign! You sign!" Behind him are TWO very large trucks full of car parts. This time Nelson loses his temper completely, he picks up the little man by his shirt front and yells at him; "Look, I don't want these! Do you understand? You must have the wrong name! Who do you want to give these to?" The little Chinese man looks at him very puzzled, consults his clipboard, and says: "You not Nissan Maindealer?"
