Starting the new year off right: my Blogaversary celebration giveaway!

On New Year's Day, our friends came over to play!  We all watched the football games -- the men glued to the TV and the rest of us drifting in and out.  The boys of course were distracted by video games, and us girls were crafting!  There was a ton of good food to keep us all going!
Rebecca and her daughter wanted to try some of the collage/paintings I've been making with Jeanelle and Lisa, so we spent a few hours working on those.

Rebecca and I each made two!

You may recall that a couple of weeks ago I had my 3rd Blogaversary and was waiting until after the holidays to have a giveway to celebrate.  Well, it's time then, isn't it?
 The prize I'm offering is "Fierce Charm", my mixed media collage -- and the ink is hardly even dry because, as you can see, I made it on January 1!  It's a OOAK piece, made with ephemera, paint, and ink on canvas.  It measures 8"x10".
The giveaway is open to anyone and everyone has up to 2 chances to enter:
  • Comment on this post only and tell me how you heard about my giveaway!  Be sure you have your email address either linked to your Blogger profile or available on your blog; if not, you must leave it in your comment so I have a way to get in touch with you.
  • If you follow this blog, comment a second time and say you do; this applies to new followers and those of you who have been friends for a while!
  • Leave your comments between now and 11:59 pm MT on January 14, 2012
I'll choose a comment at random on January 15, 2012; the commenter needs to respond to my email within 48 hours, sending me their mailing address.  If I don't hear back from them within 48 hours I will choose an alternate name.
That's it!  I enjoy this blog and all the people who visit, read along, and comment, and this is my chance to thank you in a small way for all the fun!
