I think I need to go back to elementary school because I guess technically this is post #501. I can't count. So we'll just pretend...
In honor of this being my 500th post on this blog, I would like to giveaway some stuff! The theme is: handmade.
First - four handmade cards. Why pay $5 for a card when you can win some right here for free!? I've got three "thank you" cards and one "birthday" card.
Second - four intaglio (pronounced 'intallio' - the "g" is silent which I learned the hard way at school, haha) prints. I made these my sophomore year at BYU before I went on a study abroad to London, so naturally, I was interested in all things London-themed. I etched four copper plates with maps and such of the area and made 5 editions. That means in the entire world, there are only 5 of each print. The set I am giving away here is set 5 of 5. Signed, dated, legit. These babies would look absolutely awesome framed and hung on a sparse wall.
Third - 75 sheets of cardstock. Not just any cardstock - American Crafts cardstock! This is one of every color they make. It's high quality, has a nice linen texture, and has a colored core. Non-scrappers could use this stuff for making signs, banners, school projects, etc. And for scrappers it's perfect for card-making, paper projects, and layouts. Retail value: 50 cents a sheet x 75 sheets = $37.50. Good thing I stocked up before I moved eh?
Fourth - an original handmade book by me. I painted two chipboard sheets blue and then peeled off some of the paint for a distressed look. I used the coptic binding so it lays perfectly flat - much easier to write in than other styles of bookbinding. It's 5 x 7" so it can be carried around in your purse or backpack. Use for drawing, as a journal, or heck, give it away :)
Fifth - one of my handy dandy calendars. If you already bought one on etsy, you can give this one to someone for Christmas!
Sixth and last but certainly not least - not really handmade by me, but the food will be handmade by someone - a $25 gift card to any Brinker family restaurant. Mmmmmm.
Here's the fine print: Leave a comment on this post by this Saturday October 31st (that's Halloween!) and at 11:59pm Pacific Time I will randomly pick one winner to receive all of this STUFF - winner will be posted the following day. Anyone may try for the prize - friends, family, and foe, near and abroad. Thanks for reading oh ye faithful readers!
