Surprise Giveaway - to celebrate 900 followers!

I wish there were words enought to express how blessed you all have made me feel!
900 followers clicked over the other day and all I could do was think of every sweet person behind those numbers, bloggers who take time from their busy days to visit Elefantz and read about my often crazy and madcap world. 
{{{{{{{{{{{{thank you}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}
As a small token of thanks I popped all the names of those who have left comments on my last 4 blog posts (since Blossom's birthday giveaway winners were announced), and drew one special name to win a copy of Tone Finnanger's latest Tilda book, 'Tilda's Summer Ideas'....
Fleur from Fleur's Place was the lucky winner! She left a comment on June 6th about my doily soap sachet tutorial. 
Fleur, I will email you for your address, and have Book Depository post off this lovely Tilda book all the way to you in South Africa as soon as it is released on June 16th!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
