Finding a HOME--Super Giveaway GRAB BAGS!

Per the random number generator, winners of the grab bags are: sewinggeek, maria d, sarah (of love, love, love), kim mailhot, hjs, eilieen hallock, moira and ihanna (please send me your physical address to kellininaperkins at gmail.) Congrats and thanks so much for being willing to take whatever I send you!



When I was little, there was nothing better than a grab bag. I don't know if that's because I always had a hard time making up my mind or whether it just prolonged the excitement of the unknown treat. The surprise is back and you can experience it! As I mentioned in a previous post, I have tubs and tubs full of art that needs to find a new home. I'd like to give some pieces away to kind souls who will appreciate them. This is just the tip of the iceberg lettuce and I really like salad! Since you have to read my bad puns, the least I can do is give you some art! If you like the kinds of things pictured above, this is what your goodie envelope will contain. There are lots of dolls, pins, zines, atcs, stitchpaper quilts, books and more. I just have too much! I'm going to stuff FIVE random large envelopes full of fun and I'll draw five names Sunday night from the comments below. There is too much to list individually, so you're stuck with whatever the mailman delivers. Leave a comment on this post and I'll list the five winners here, on my facebook page and on twitter, so be sure to check back so I can get your address if your name is drawn!

    I have always loved your art, so winning a grab bag from you would be wonderful! I don't remember ever winning or purchasing a grab bag. Something I missed out on, in my childhood, I guess.

    Thanks for your generosity in sharing your artwork with five lucky winners. I hope that one of them is me!
