I Won – The Most Wall Worthy Art Contest!

The best intentions to write this post yesterday withered as the day progressed, and sleepiness combined with the inability to concentrate swept over me. The excitement of winning first place and having three room rental tenants move into my house on the same day was slightly overwhelming.

I slept for 10 hours last night.

Thank you to everyone who voted for the Sassy Sea Urchin; all 299 of you! And congrats to all the other finalists. A record breaking number of people turned out to vote in Etsy’s What Would You Hang on Your Wall Contest as reported in the Storque article featuring my artwork!

Special Offer – Mention this blog post in the message to seller upon check-out and you’ll get 15% off your total purchase (excluding shipping costs) from me. If you’ve been eying an original artwork or box this would be the time to purchase it. The 15% off will be refunded via Paypal after you have paid. This offer expires on August 25, 2009.

Please Vote for Me in the What Would You Hang on Your Wall Contest

Well, it looks like the Sassy Sea Urchin was nominated into the What Would You Hang on Your Wall Contest on Etsy. Yay! Thanks so much DailyThreads for nominating me and congratulations on winning the previous A Notebook for All Seasons contest.

And thank you to Lorrie, a good friend of mine for initially letting me know about this whole thing by posting the contest on my facebook wall this morning… I had no idea!

Please do go vote for me :)

If I win, my art will be featured in the Members Choice Gift Guide on Etsy. The Gift Guides are prime real estate and if you are lucky and talented enough to be featured in one; it’s akin to winning a small lottery and could certainly do much in helping my art sales. And that my friends is what feeds, clothes, pays the vet bills and allows me to continue creating; in essence to do my job and not go insane and cut off my ear like van Gogh did.

If you are not a member of Etsy… do sign up so that you can vote within the next six days. Both my cat and I agree, this, is a good thing!
