Good morning folks! I have randomly generated the selection of three comments for this giveaway! The winners are:
Comment #188 –Mandy Jean
Comment #13 — Susanne
Comment #1 — Amber
Congratulations ladies! I’ll get your packages in the mail tout de suite!
And as aways, thank you all so much for taking the time to leave a note on this giveaway post. We always put together the very best reading lists, music lists, film lists and generally beautiful comment sections full of poetry, kindness and generosity.
I appreciate you terribly much and love having you in my world.
I am delighted to finally, FINALLY, offer up some photography prints! Some of you have been asking for just such a thing for a few years now. It’s taken me a while to do the research on the different kinds of papers, printers and printing companies and here’s what I finally decided on — giclee prints on top shelf, fine art papers. These prints are gloriously textural on their own, as photographs, but printed on fine art, highest quality watercolor paper just adds volume to the inherent texture. These shots print up like they are made of VELVET. Incredible. Delectable.
I will be offering a few of these prints in my shop, later today, and for a while to come. I also wanted to offer a few in a giveaway here on my blog.
Up for the win are three images, in this order:
I’ve photographed them here on their own as prints and also mounted in a very basic white mat frame so you can see how they look when in a crisp display. They will land in your hands as simple prints leaving the matting or framing (should you decide to to mat them or frame them) up to you!
You know the usual rules around here when it comes to giveaways. I do them in celebration of and gratitude for your support, for the community you are part of here in my online spaces, for the joy it gives me to serve you in any way I can — through my work, my writing, my photography and the truly wonderful and unique connections I am able to cultivate with you just by being human and honest and vulnerable. You don’t need to market my work or any of my online spaces in order to enter in the drawing for this giveaway. All you need to do is leave a comment on the end of this blog post. If you are shy, just say hello! If you feel inclined, let me know what you are listening to these days, in your cars and trucks and soccer-mom-vans while you cruise your local roads with the windows down and the breeze in your hair. Or, tell me what are you sipping on the front porch in the evenings while the sun makes its slow descent and the moon comes rising.
One comment per person, please — it makes it easier for me to tally up comments and draw a name. Of course, if someone says something spectacularly beautiful (which happens all the time in my comment sections) that you feel a need to respond to, I’m happy to let you break this rule! Do what moves you, tell us all what you love and how you feel! June is such a beautiful month, it’s hard to not start speaking about life in poetic stanzas. I write a ballads in my mind multiple times a day.
As always, my giveaways turn into care packages — boxed bevies of beautiful baubles and treats to accompany whatever you have won. Count on something wonderful coming your way if you should win one of these prints.
Lastly, I’m about to do a ridiculous amount of traveling, both nationally and internationally, so this giveaway post may be up for a long while. Thanks for your patience if it takes me a few hours or days to moderate incoming comments. There will be pockets of time when I am away from the interwebulars.
Happy June to you all! Bless you for being here.
