THANKS!!! And .....drumroll.....A GIVEAWAY!!

Thanks for the shouts!
First is Fran's blog and Fran's website.  She has some very cool paintings and she writes too - multitasking wondergirl that she is - she deserves a place at the hipster table but she might be too cool for me.  Thanks for the feature, Fran.

Also, one of my posts has been listed on Midlife Bloggers - another deck site with a lot of very seriously good writers.  Please check them out - thanks Jane.

Ok - now for the giveaway.  It's pretty simple, and starts today because well, some lucky poster will get an extra tax return in the form of a mixed media collage from my Amuse Series.  Because it's April 15, yo and some of us might still be banging on the post office door at 11:59 pm.

The giveaway winner will be chosen by random number generator.

Here are the rules.  And I'm totally stealing-ummm...benchmarking the fine print from Wendi's giveaways.  Because she's funny and it works.

1. Go to my Etsy store
2. Pick out a favorite item
3. Come back here to the blog
4. Write a comment to this post, listing the item and why you like it
5. Extra entries if you have a blog and post a link to my blog with the giveaway.  (Like extra credit in school)
6. Giveaway starts tonight, April 15, and ends April 24.  Because I'm giving all y'all some extra days to comment.  Because I want to and it's my giveaway. 

Fine print:
It's more small print than fine. Giveaway starts as soon as this is posted. It ends at 5pm on Friday, April 24, 2009 est. One entry per person - unless you post a link to my blog on your blog. In that case, you'll have one additional entry. Additional posts must be verified. If I cannot verify your post, your extra entry is toast.  Dude, I told you I was tough.  This contest is open to you - whether I know you or not. By entering this giveaway, you agree to abide by the rules I've stated or not stated, and I can change the rules whenever I please. It's a Lulu prerogative.

Man, you're just as tough as winn, well, almost...

I will get to entering when I have my coffee and Omega 3 Flax Seed Cookies (yes I am so serious) BUT before then, stop by my blog, there's a lil' somethin' somethin' waiting for you...

see ya at the cool table...

Holy crap! I didn't realize you had a store. I LOVE that Amuze series. I would take any of those happily. In fact, I think I will have to find a way to get them all anyway. One just will not do - they need to stay together. Don't take this personally, but I hope none of them go anywhere until I either (a) get paid or (b)get my tax return. They are AWESOME. I know exactly where they're going too. I'm not going to post them on the blog after they're mine. Sorry.

Well, since I am blogging about the good life in the Texas Hill Country, and doing my best to release my inner cowgirl, my fav would have to be Cowgirl UP! And for bonus points, you can see my link to you here: http://hillcountryliving.blogspot.com/2009/04/cowgirl-up.html

OK I love the tulip crazy painting; it looks like it should be in a rustic, European restaurant, and makes me want to sip red wine and talk with a good friend into the wee hours of the morning, after switching over to espresso and a warm croissant.

And you are on my blog roll now, does that count?

Jeannine said...

I love "Wild Women Do-and don't regret it" because that has always been my philosophy of life and I'm still here to tell the tale. Love your work - so creative and fun. Will be following your blog and checking out your items at Etsy. Etsy is such a great place that I discovered just this week.

Lotta said...

Tough choice! I would have to go with the Jester though Cecil was a fav too!

Lulu said...

Insanity Kim - thank you for the award! OTT to you and muchas appreciation :) Ummm....the blog roll AND the award count as an extra vote. Because it's my giveaway.

FoN - thank you for the props - feel free to purchase them all....but you must do so before April 24!

I LOVE the Hokey Pokey King collage. I love the message but I also love the fact that is EXACTLY what my hair looked like before they invented flat irons!
