Thank you to everyone that entered the giveaway. We have a winner! As blogged about previously here, Zoe was given the responsibility of coming up with a creative way of choosing a winner, which was inspired by Rachael Daisy's method that can be found here.
So, I'm handing the rest of this post over to Zoe, who has taken photos of the selection process and explained how she randomly selected a winner!
Everyone's names were written on pieces of orange or green paper.
All the pieces of paper went into the box. From there I asked Dad to pull out ten names. The remaining names were put into this jug. Not pretty, but one of Mum's favourite kitchen items.
From the jug, another ten names were removed. The rest went in to this jar.
From this jar eight names were pulled out (Eli did this).
The rest of the names were spread out on the table. Using a straw I sucked up papers until only three were left.
Red, yellow and blue tags were put on three jars and on the last three names.
I asked Mum to pick a colour. She picked blue.
The name on the blue paper was...
drum roll please...
Crafty Tokyo Mama!!
Mum has sent an email to Crafty Tokyo Mama to inform her of the good news. Thanks to everyone who joined in. I will try and convince Mum to have more giveaways on her blog!
PS No Softies were harmed in any way. And the entire family has assured Eli that his softies are not part of the giveaway and will be remaining with him.
