It’s Monday and Time for Another Art Giveaway!

UPDATE – commenting is now closed on this post

Last time I gave away 3 print packs in celebration of my 500th post.

This week you get to choose your prize from an assortment of over fifty $12 and $18 prints. Pick one, leave it’s name and link in your comment and that will be the print you win.

The rules are simple

Go to my Etsy shop and pick out your favorite $12 or $18 print and comment on it here. Leave your name, blog address (if you have one) and email (which I will not share) with your chosen print. Pleas enter only once.

About the Prints

Your print will be signed, dated and titled by me on the back in pencil and arrive with a dated certificate of authenticity.

What if I WIN? :)

On that note, if you win I will contact you by the secret email you left here. Next Sunday at midnight AST I will randomly draw one name from the comments and mail you your chosen print to wherever you live in this beautiful world. I will need you to email me back with your accurate physical mailing address that will never be shared within 48 hours of receiving the winning email notification or I will draw another name. I’ll announce the winner publicly as soon as it is confirmed. Comments will close Sunday, September 28, 2008 at 12:00AM AST.

And if you don’t win, go buy one at my Art shop. ;)

Thank you and Good Luck!!

And the winners of the 3 print packs are…

First Prize – Tressa
Second Prize – Jean Young
Third Prize – LoveMeKnot Creations

Rather than tearing up little pieces of paper like I’ve done in the past or asking a family member to pick a number between such and such I traveled to Random.org and had them pick three random numbers between 1 and 44 as that was how many comments there was.

I’ll be packaging your print packs tonight and mailing them off to you tomorrow. Thank you everyone for entering and leaving wonderful comments for me to read. It was nice to have you around to celebrate my 500th blog post.

Cheers all!
