Give Away Time


Because it is my blog's birthday in 12 days I decided to have a little give away. :) 3 years of me rambling :p huh who knew I could find something to write about for such a long time :p

Met a lot of nice people online through blogging, and not just artists and craft people. The sense of community is what I really like about blogging, lots of helpful and nice people out there that I would never have met if I hadn't started up this blog. :)

Decided to have 2 give aways to celebrate. Rules are pretty simple, just leave a comment to be entered :) but if you want to have a few extra entries here is what you can do. For each of these that you do, please leave a separate comment so I can keep track of how many entries a person has :) )

1. head on over to my Etsy store and leave a comment here about an item you like (1 extra entry)
2. blog about the giveaway and leave a comment here letting me know you have blogged about the give away (1 extra entry)
3. Twitter the giveaway :) (1 extra entry) just leave me a comment sending me to your twitter page (1 extra entry)

Leaving a comment will enter you into the draw unless you tell me you do not want to be entered. The first winner will get the 3 prints that are labelled #1, the second winner will get the 2 prints labelled #2. Sorry no family members as I don't want to be seen as playing favourites.

Give away entries close at 23:59 (GMT) on the 24th of August 2009

*side note*I think I will cry if no one enters lol and feel unloved..jk ;)

*edit* I will need a way to contact the winners, so please make sure I can contact you. Either through your sign in name or an email. Thanks

Give Away is no closed. Thank you everyone for entering and I will announce the winners 2 days from now :)

Rose Welty said...

Hmm, strategy plays a part here...if I keep this opportunity to myself, I only get one entry. If I tell others, I get more entries - but then again, I'm telling other people who will enter. :D You are so tricky!

Congrats on the birthday - a very enjoyable blog!

Serena said...

Congrats Jen, on the first anniversary on your blog!!!!

I have to make a comment on your artwork too. While I was looking through your etsy shop I was thinking to myself how much I like how you use the color of the paper to complement the drawing. For example, the small swan is drawn on what appears to be light blue paper, and the dark knight is on what appears to be terracotta colourfix paper (or something similar). I love how you use just enough pencil to give the drawing shape and form, and of course values, but not taking away from the background color. Your technique draws out (no pun intended) the subject just enough to bring attention to it without over doing it.

I absolutely love both the small swan and the dark knight, but I think if I had to choose a favorite it would be the dark knight. I love the gold trim on the face protector, and of course, I adore horses. Outstanding technique you used in both of the pieces!!

I apologize for not writing these comments to you before now. I have commented on these on the artist forums where you originally posted them, but in looking over your body of work, I was struck by your use of the background coloring in your overall drawing.

You're honestly giving away prints to celebrate your blog's one year birthday?!?! WOW! Okay, I'll have to be selfish and have my name entered in. I would adore having one of your pieces of art!!! :D

I will, of course, also add your give-away announcement to my blog for you! Rose is right, so tricky! But I hope it will get you some more customers.

Have a great day Jen!
