Art-ish Giveaway

As you already know, I recently opened my Etsy store. I want more people to know about it, so what a better thing to do than a GIVEAWAY! =)

Here are the rules for all of you, who want to participate:
* You MUST be my follower here.
* If you have a blog, write a post about this giveaway and include one of the photos, linking to my blog AND my Etsy store.
* If you don't have your own blog, then let people know in some other creative (don't forget to link back to my blog + my Etsy store)

Here are the prizes:

1st prize: A pencil drawing of a person by your choice. It can be your family member, your loved one... you choose. Drawing will be made on Winsor & Newton drawing paper in A4 format (approximately 8.3 × 11.7 inches). I'll need you to e-mail me a photo of the person for this one.

2nd prize: Custom made ring. A ring like this on the photo, but you'll choose the color and pattern. The size of the ring is adjustable.

3rd prize: Print of one of my photos. Size 15x20 cm (6x8 inches) or 20x30 cm (8x12 inches) - depending on my photo quality.

Leave your entry in the comment section below. You must include: how you follow me, your nickname, your e-mail, link to your blog post/or link to however you decided to let others know about my Etsy store. I'd also like to know which of the 3 prizes you'd like to win best.

I hope I didn't forget anything... If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. =)

EDIT: I knew I forgot something. This giveaway is international, so you're all welcome to enter. =) The last day to enter is April 16th. Good luck!

Thanks for looking!


  1. Great giveaway! Love your work. Is it possible, instead of a person, a pet for the drawing?
    Otherwise I would love to win one of your prints.
    I follow you through google, e-mail:, name on Google: contestsandsuch, nickname: Nessa, here is my post about your giveaway. Is it international?

  2. Hi there you pretty thing! Arghh, I want and don't want to enter, both at the same time! xD Seriously, I'm not greedy, and I feel like I'm so blessed with your friendship already, that I don't /need/ more! On the other hand... How would I be able to resist one of your works of art? :) So, if I enter sloppily (is that even a word?!), maybe I'll just be disqualified, and that is OK. ;) You know I follow, but not with the Google friend follow thingy- I just subscribe through Google Reader instead. I'll let people know about your etsy shop for sure, but mostly for pure altruistic reasons. Hahah. If I manage to write a specific post, you'll find it yourself I'm sure. ;) Kisses! :*

    3. sem pisala o giveawayu:

    Najraje bi dobila 1. nagrado, ker so mi tvoje risbice tako zelo všeč, sploh tale z modrim metuljem je fenomenalna, pa še zdi se mi, da bi super pasala na moje bele stene v sobi :) V bistvu si delam celo galerijo v sobi :D Imam že sliko od dedka, dve moji sliki, pa še veliiiiko prostora ;)
    Ok, dovolj nakladanja :P

  4. I think we could arrange that and replace the person with an animal. =)
    Yep, this is international, thanks for reminding me. =)

  5. Ah, you just can't follow the rules, can you? =))) You know I could never disqualify you, honey. =)

    I am most interested in the custom drawing or the print, but I also like the ring. I am not indecisive really. Every option is good! :)

    I added two of your pictures to my sidebar. One has a link to your contest post. The other has a link to your etsy shop.
