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.
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.
