Spring Beauty, Spring Cleaning Giveaway Winner!

Hello ladies,

Let's get started! We begin with a sleepy kitty named Lily.
Add catnip to a bowl...
with 534 hand written contest entries
and we have her attention.
The second the contents were emptied she was ready! Lily's job is to choose a slip of paper with the name of the winner and move it off the perimeter of the blue towel. Let's witness her technique.
She overcame all feelings of pressure.

With a yogic stretch.
She used her fine sense of taste.
Pawed at the towel to help sort the entries.
And decided a break for grooming and beautification was essential to her best performance.
She put herself into the middle of it all.
And expressed her work ethic.
She gave the entries a final toss with her paws.
Taking a moment to contemplate the task,
She reached a decision.
With a belly full of catnip, she rolled over with the name of the winner.

Congratulations Jessica! Please visit Jessica's blog: Polished Lyrics. There she combines her love of music with her love of polish. It's delightful and inspiring.

Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway and all those checking in. A special thanks to Lily and her human companions Denise and Chuck.

I'll be doing the drawing for the His & Hers giveaway this coming Friday. I already have plans in place with my helper.

Happy painting, ladies!
