It's "Giveaway Saturday" at Rosehaven Cottage!

As I said in my last post, I've been doing a lot of soul-searching this week about what direction I want my creative path to follow. Interestingly, everything finally "gelled" for me while Hubby and I were sitting in a movie theatre watching The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. I'm dead serious!

I have come to the conclusion that I care more about sharing my creative work with those that will give it a good home than I do about making a buck. So I'm going to be implementing a lot of new and exciting things over the next few months into my blogs and website that will make that possible.

One thing that I can institute right away is what I'm going to call "Giveaway Saturday".

Every Saturday, I'm going to showcase a piece of my art or photography that I will be giving away based on a random drawing the following Saturday. Everyone who leaves a comment will be entered. Each person will only be counted once so duplicate comments won't help your odds (sorry). I will pay shipping to whomever wins the drawing. If you don't have an email link connected to the i.d. you use to leave the comment, then you'll have to check back the following Saturday to find out if you won and then contact me via email so I can get your postal address privately. If you do have an email link connected to the i.d. you use, then I will contact you off the blog as well as announce you as the winner. Basically, it's the standard blog giveaway rules that are out there in the "blog-o-sphere" already.


This "Giveaway Saturday", I'm giving away a set of 3 signed photo notecards entitled "Vintage Roses" featuring my photography, digital art, and hand-cut paper art. Each notecard is signed and dated, ready to send and/or frame. The art photos are "mounted" on the notecards without adhesives in handcut decorative corners, so they are easily removed by you or the recipient for framing. The photo art is also signed and dated on a signature panel on the back so it retains a signature when removed from the card. Each card measures 5 1/2" square (with matching 6"x 6" white envelope). Each art photo without notecard measures 5" square.

Good luck to everyone and feel welcome to spread the word via email or links or however you choose--the more the merrier!
