Finished calendar and a giveaway!

Yes! I finished my calendar! Uploaded everything to Lulu, which is not always very user-friendly I might say ...., and ordered some for myself. They should be here in 2 weeks. Can't wait ☺

Here are the pages I finished this week:





In case you're interested in buying this calendar, here's the link. I'm going to do some more "marketing" for it as soon as I've received mine.

And this week I reached 100 followers! So excited! For me it's a milestone, I never thought I would reach it before the end of the year. I'd always planned to do a giveaway when I reached 100 followers, but, as always, I wasn't prepared for it and now all of a sudden I didn't know what to give away. First I wanted to give away one of my smaller canvases, until ..... I took a look at the shipping prices for overseas ... To make matters worse Australia post was so kind as to increase their prices as of this week. And since I don't want to limit this giveaway to my Australian followers, I had to come up with something else.

So I decided to give away an A4-sized (8,3"x11.6") art print of my latest painting "A place away from darkness":


 And secondly, for someone else, a pack of 5 random postcards, like these:


  or like these


Now, what should you do to enter the giveaway? Well, it's simple, just leave a comment on this post to enter the giveaway once. If you share this on your blog, Facebook or twitter (with a link back to this blog), your name will be added as often as you share it. Just don't forget to mention the link(s) to your posts in your comment below.

That's it!

I, or better yet, my daughter (she LOVES these things ☺) will draw the two winners next Friday (2nd of November). That's Australian time, so it'll still be Thursday night in some parts of the world.

Well, thank you so much for visiting! I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday, don't forget to check out all the gorgeous art works there.

For now I'll just wish you a very happy day, and a wonderful weekend doing things that you love!

    1. Denthe, 100 followers, how exciting! How long did it take? The Lewis Carroll quotes are my favourite, but I enjoy all of your art. The bold exciting colours, the girls' expressions...the celebration of being female. What an exciting giveaway! Would it be okay to include some your images on my blog to help you out?
