… and the winner is …
I know you’ve spent all weekend wondering who has won my giveaway, but I wanted to build the suspense a little. Sorry, but there’s not much else exciting happening around here, seeing as I’m in the middle of another translation and haven’t left the house for days. Normally I’m out skydiving, bungy jumping, fire eating, wrestling with wild animals* and all that sort of thing, as anyone who knows me will attest, but for the past few days I’ve had to get my thrills vicariously via the internet.
Anyway, thanks to the lovely folk at Kodansha who have made the giveaway possible, now someone else gets a thrill too. The thrill of getting to make things like FELT ANIMALS!! Can’t get a lot more thrilling than that!! (Bungy jumping is a bore in comparison, plus it requires more equipment!) So without further ado, I’m going to announce the winner…
… well, maybe after I thank you all for entering and make you have another look at this supercute cover…
Anyway, so drum roll for the winner… it’s Magdalena! Yay!
Please let me state now that it was not me who chose the winner, it was the team at Kodansha (which is the company that publishes the book). I knew it would be too hard for me to make the decision so I handballed it to them. I’m thinking of getting them to handle all of my life’s difficult decisions from now on. What to wear? Should I have that extra bit of chocolate? Should I watch just one more episode of Glee instead of looking for paid employment? Why tire myself out thinking about that sort of thing? I’ll just ask Kodansha.
*I bet you thought I was joking about the wrestling with wild animals, but Suki can really put up a fight when she doesn’t want cuddles!! Look at that grumpy little face!
Congrats!!!and Suki is sooo cute :phttp://www.closet-fashionista.com/
I wish Mia would let me pick her up and cuddle her even just once a year, but I think I cramp her feline style… Glee has been great so far, you should always watch one more episode!
How old is Mia? All you have to do is wait until they get to about 18, and then they can't be bothered wriggling any more or forget that they don't like cuddles. Suki even ASKS for cuddles now (at least that's what I think she's saying), so I know she must have feline dementia 🙂
Ah crap, I forgot to come back and enter! Will have to have a look at the cute entries :)Chomby has been a lot tamer than usual of late. Usually he will only climb up our stretched-out legs and onto out lap if we're luring him with food, but yesterday he came up a couple of times just to be patted to sleep! Suki is sucha sweetie!xx
Mia's five and has become a lot more affectionate – on her terms – but will not be picked up. She'll jump on my back or shoulders if it suits her purpose though. I think we're the ones with feline dementia…!
ha, very true. I certainly don't think I'm sane with all the things I do for Suki (including sleeping in fur-encrusted bed and letting her in and out at all hours of the night). I'm sure Mia will let you pick her up in oh, about 13 years or so… it will be worth the wait…
I forgot to enter too, but congrats to the winner of felty animal crafty goodness. Suki may be an old girl, but she's so cute.
Can such a cute cat really say no to cuddles?! Congratulations Magdalena!(P.S. It's funny what you said, because Sarah Mower actually did sketch during the shows.)
Haha … oh yes, she does look grumpy.Congratulations to the lucky winner … I'd love to outsource all my important decisions to someone else too – life would surely be much easier? 😉
Congrats, winner!I love that face Suki is making! Very much reminds me of our Suki 🙂
