Giveaway 101... Post That Is

I suppose I needed a course called Giveaway 101 when I first attempted one on my new blog last fall but this is actually for my One Hundred and First posting on this blog.

On that first giveaway I made the entry criteria so stringent that I'm sure several folks that thought they were in the running actually didn't qualify. Oh well, you learn a bit along the way.

I won my first two giveaways both in the same week a couple of weeks ago and have some pics of my loot along with a lovely trade I recently received. I took advantage of the bedroom repainting and carpeting to photograph the little piles of goodies.

My giveaway is a rather random assortment of prizes. I hope I don't confuse anyone by posting my winnings on the same day but I had been meaning to show them off.

All I need you to do is comment to be in the running. If you want to be counted twice post a picture link to your blog sidebar and let me know that you've done so. I also need a way to get ahold of you when you win so P L E A S E make sure that I have some way to find your email address. The winner will be picked Sunday 6:00PM Alaska Time.

Thanks for following, Kim

Augustus, *Numinosity* beads and more in my giveaway.

First of all is an Original Messalonskee Moppet, friend and cohort of our famous world traveling Candace.

Meet Augustus, a fine fellow all dressed in yellow. He was getting a bit envious of Candace and was yearning for a trip so I'm sending him off to a new home. In addition to that I'm giving away a *Numinosity* Bead, (a periwinkle, turquoise, black and transparent aqua lentil shaped bead)
A small vase shaped cobalt bead
Two lampwork cabochon swirls
A half of a clear bead flecked with genuine placer gold mined from the 40 Mile River off of the Mighty Yukon.
Two squares of gold leaf from Thailand
Two of my new "Glinchie Magninchies" (small magnets made with glass tile and inks)
And one gold fumed whorl on cobalt silk ribbon. ( I told you it was random!)

A little closer now. See what you can win!

This is what I've done with some of my winnings already.
Preschool puzzle pieces decoupaged with vintage photos and magazine images.
I'll be adding more to these and making tags or ornaments from them.

I won this sweet box full of treasures from Becca at Patina Moon
Each piece artfully wrapped and exquisitely presented in a decoupaged box.

I won this from Laura at Found Memories Art
It was jam packed with papers and ephemera and even an art book!
Note the puzzle pieces above, I've already put some of the pieces together for a new project.

A most lovely trade with Lorna from "Artymess"
The packaging itself was a treat!

  6. Oh, Kim, my week has eaten me up and spit me out! I wanted to say what a beautiful collection of lovely handmade art. You know why looking at all of it makes me a little sad. But I may be making some progress with my creative constipation. Please sign me on as a contender, and I'll be posting the picture link for twice the chances! This is the first time I've played in the giveaway games.
