GIVEAWAY!!!

Thursday, July 9, 2009

***This Giveaway is Closed***

I'm so excited that it's GIVEAWAY DAY! I think I may be even more excited that you. I stumbled upon the etsy shop of Tim Iriving (opart) and I instantly fell in love with his photographs and his blog...and the fact that he's an English artist living in Spain...I'm sorry, doesn't that just sound so incredibly romantic? Anyway, I contacted him and asked if he would be willing to give one of his wonderful prints away to one of my readers. He kindly agreed. In fact, the winner will be able to choose any print from his shop.

Here are a few samples of his work:

The Bold...






And The Beautiful....



So down to the nitty gritty - what do you need to do to enter? Post a comment below (and make sure I can reach you by email somehow if you're the winner).

Interested in extra credit? Publish a post on your blog linking back to either this post or ANY OF MY POSTS that interest you, and then come back and leave a comment telling me you did that. You'll then be entered again to win.

I'll choose the winner randomly and announce the winner on Wednesday of next week.

Good luck!
