It begins next Monday, October 1st and I’m going to start it off by giving away two of my potholders.
Here’s how it works:
Me and 4 other artists have come together to form the Common Thread Give-a-way. For a whole year (and maybe longer depending on how it goes) every month one of us will be giving away a piece of our art. The Give-a-way will be the first Monday of each month. If you’re interested in winning you just have to leave a comment on the artists blog who is giving something away. The winner will be picked randomly and announced that Thursday.
So who are we artists?
Well, there’s me and as I said I’ll be starting it off next Monday, so come back on October 1st and see what I’m giving away and enter to win.
Then on November 1st Nancy Bariluk-Smith will be giving away a piece of her lampwork bead jewelry. Check out her work on her website spinningglassstudio.com. She just got a new Mac for her business, and is taking some gorgeous photos of her work.
On December 1st Kim Gifford will be giving away one of her prints. Could be one of her collages or one of her pugs. We just won’t know till December. Kim’s website is pugs&pics.com and you can read all about her and her work there (Kim is also a terrific writer and pug lover)
And now we’re into 2013. Jane McMillen will be our January 1st giveaway artist. I’ve been enchanted by Jane’s work since I bought my first pincushion from her. But she also makes wallets and penny rugs and well, you’ll just have to go to Jane’s website littlehousehomeart.com to see what she’s up to now. Who knows what she’ll be giving away in January.
And the fifth artist giving away a piece of his work the first Monday in February 2013 is my own sweet husband Jon Katz. It will be note cards or a signed print of one of Jon’s Photos. I hardly need to mention his website bedlamfarm.com but just in case you haven’t done it already…….
And then in March, we start all over again. So don’t forget to check in next Monday (and if you’re on one of the other artist’s websites, they’ll remind you) and see what I’m giving away.
