Winners are announced!!!

I am here to announce the winners
for my Mum's 100th post giveaway...
now not having opposable thumbs I had to enlist 
the help of said mother and the sister type thing
they were going to do a random draw thing using the internet
but looked a bit taxing for their little brains...

So Phantom had the bright idea of using the Bingo set
I am slightly embarrassed to live with a family that has
a bingo set
but hey humans are a bit weird like that...

So Phantom ,
who is apparently quite brilliant
just ask her she will tell you,
spends ten long minutes stuffing little numbers into the bingo thingy
which I am sure could have been done in about two minutes flat if I had 
those pesky thumb things
finally the time to draw 

number 62...
now considering there is only forty something comments
this caused great consternation and debate
led to re draw after re draw
after the first 5 were all high numbers
at which I point I decided to have a lie down because this could take some time
the mother figure stepped in and said we were doing it the old fashioned way
and the next ten minutes were spent
writing all the names on little bits of paper
and three were drawn
so with a great deal of drama and some doggy howls...

the necklace and ring set goes to...

The card and notebook set goes to...

and last but not least...
the prints go to...

Big congrats to all the winners and commiserations to those
who didn't get a prize
I know my mum thinks you are all pretty special
and appreciated you all because
she never stops talking about you all
and how supportive and lovely and 
yada yada yada
you humans sure love to talk...

so with those announcements
I will bid you all adieu
and go back to my normal job...
this modelling caper
is exhausting let me tell you 

much love

Wonderful job, Mushu! I can see why you need to relax on the chair after such a strenuous presentation. :)

Such a fun way to announce the winners. Enjoyed reading the commentary as well as looking at the pictures.

Mushu cracks me up! But I have to say, I haven't seen a better model in ages. Even though I didn't win a giveaway, the real prize is enjoying your creative story telling every day.
