The Spooky Mystery Giveaway!

I said I'd have one more giveaway before Blogtoberfest ended and here it is: "The Spooky Mystery Giveaway"!

"Dia de los Muertos" - An early collage art postcard I made back in the 1990's while in art school...

Today is Halloween so I'm calling my giveaway "spooky", but I assure you the giveaway goodies will not be spooky in the least!

However, I haven't had time to pull anything together for a photo so that you'd know what you're getting which is why this giveaway is a MYSTERY, even to ME! ;)

But you may rest assured that you'll be thrilled with whatever you get and if you doubt it, just run over to this blog buddy who received one of my first "mystery" giveaways to tell you if the mystery was worth it!

What I can tell you is that you might get a copy of some of my early mail art postcards, made way back in the 1990's when I was taking art classes and learning about Collage Art, now one of my favorite mediums...

"Mail Art" postcard made in the 1990's; the exercise was "synergy" - putting two or more random images together to make a whole...

I can also tell you that you'll likely get one or two mail art envelopes made from photocopied images of my photos or artwork...

These envelopes are made from images from one of my art books, but you might get some made from my photos!

And I can say that if you knit, crochet, sew, collage, scrapbook, draw, rubber stamp or paint, I'm bound to have something among my many, MANY supplies to send along in your giveaway goodie bag. Just be sure to add your favorite craft when commenting so I can tailor the bag to YOU!

Now for the details for entering the giveaway:
  1. This giveaway is open to ALL, near or far!
  2. Leave a comment AT THIS BLOG POST
  3. You must comment by 5pm Pacific Standard Time on FRIDAY NOVEMBER 4, 2011 to enter the giveaway

  5. The winner will be announced on Monday November 7
Good luck to you all, dear blog readers!

It's been quite a Blogtoberfest this year and I'll be taking just a bit of time off from blogging as I work on my two big tasks of cleaning my creative space and making goods to sell at an upcoming holiday boutique on November 13. I'd love to join in Art Every Day Month this year, but I won't be able to post about it daily. However, I might post about what I'm working on in a weekly wrap-up...

I've mentioned working on some new interviews to share with you all and that will be coming up in the next few weeks. I'm very excited about the interviewees and I think you will be too!

I also have a birthday coming up and to celebrate, I'll be posting a fun list of 46 random things, so be sure to stay tuned for all the goodness!

Congratulations to all the participants of Blogtoberfest! We've all managed to blog every day and made some new blog buddies along the way. And of course, many thanks and a big HOORAY to Tinniegirl for another fabulous year of Blogtoberfest! She is truly "the hostess with the mostest"!!

Have a Happy Halloween!
