Sticky Paw Prize Draw Winner

Drum Roll please...
...finally we are about to reveal the name of the 'Sticky Draw Prize Draw Giveaway'! 
I know it's taken some time and I apologise for that. 
I really didn't intend to keep you all on tenderhooks for this length of time but we've finally managed to make a little video clip of McMuffy completing her task of choosing the winning name. 
I have to admit we had to complete quite a few 'takes' (speaking the film business lingo luveyto get this rather substandard clip. In fact, I think it took about eight attempts and I was beginning to run low on fresh chicken plus fearing that Muffin would either 'pop' or have a serious weight issue at the end of it all. 
I also thought that she may have been working the system somewhat, so that we had to keep filming ^..^ securing yet another tasty chicken treat!
Here are some of the events that occurred whilst phone decided to ring...the builders deafening drill drowned out all other sound...and on three occasions McMuffy walked around the name instead of over them, so it was quite a challenge to say the least but thankfully we got there in the end.
I should have taken heed of that saying "never work with animals"

Anyway...without further ado here is the clip revealing the winner's name

Congratulations MacMillanMarie 
I'll be in touch later to check your postal details. 
(I must apologise that I couldn't read your name out correctly because unfortunately I wasn't wearing my glasses on this particular shooting

With numerous clips not used I also feel guilty about the names that were picked on those out-takes, so I thought I'd send a little something to them. 
Congratulations and I'll contact you soon.

Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to enter the giveaway draw. 
I'm sorry if you are not a winner and wish I could send you all a little gift but I'm afraid that that would break the bank. 
Maybe you'll be lucky with my next giveaway.
Have a fabulous day and I hope to see you again soon 

Sticky Paw Prize Draw...coming soon (GYBP)

Apologies for anyone waiting with baited breath and bitten finger nails for the giveaway prize draw announcement, but I'm afraid it will have to take place tomorrow. 
Our star and Diva 'Miss McMuffy' is insisting on being bathed and groomed before she makes her public appearance and we just didn't get around to that today. 
Plus the light is fading fast, so inevitably the film crew are refusing to film saying it's too dark and nothing to do with the fact that there's footy on the TV. 
I did intend to pick the winner today, but it has been jam packed with the usual full on weekend activities, plus visitors. 
So hang on in there peeps...we'll be announcing soon...I promise. 
Hopefully tomorrow.

In the meantime, because so many people taking part in the Grow Your Blog Party are crafty, creative individuals...I thought you might like to see some very cute critters. 
Their foliage is made up of little fir cones, branches and twigs. 
I think they're so cleverly created and adore them.
They are currently living in the inglenook close to the fire...but not too close obviously being made of wood! 
If you'd like to read a little more about owls especially about the ‘Tawny Frogmouth Owls' who came to visit us for Christmas when we lived in Melbourne then click HERE.  

So hopefully I'll be able to announce the winner for the 'stick paw prize draw' tomorrow (you'll understand why it's called that when you see the draw
so keep those fingers crossed just a little longer.  
Good Luck everyone
