The Prizes

I organised a give-away from my Organikal newsletter last summer. The moment when I packaged up the book to send to the winner over in Hollywood was one of my highlights of the year. It felt so wonderful to gift something to someone I’d never met in real life. Just because.

Writing here about receiving the Kelly Barton prints reminded me how great it was to be on the receiving end as well. Ripples spreading…

Ripples Spreading + Gift Giving

It’s been over a year since I set up this space. It really was just a place for me at the start. I loved that very much, especially the freedom that I felt unable to achieve over at Organikal and the VegBoxMenu site.This site was the ‘real’ me.

Now I’d love to open it up to even more lovely folks. This space and my new Facebook page. In celebration of me feeling confident enough to say this is me – this is what i’m really about.

So here’s what I’ve done. I’ve gathered together a prize bundle of fabulous goodies that I would personally love to own. Because I’d love to own them (and I do actually own a version of everything I’ve included) I hope you will, too.

How You Can Win

For a chance to win them, you need to leave a comment at the bottom of this post and tell me what is the favourite gift you have received in the last year?

Quadruple Your Chances!

Each time you do one of the above,  leave a separate comment for each action to let me know you’ve done it, and that will count as a whole separate entry. (The lovely Jenn did this over at Roots of She ages ago, and I won a place on Darrah Parker’s Slice of Life photography course – Cool hey?)

The giveaway is open until February 13th and I’ll choose the winner randomly and announce it here on Valentine’s Day, the 14th February.

What can you win?

Smash BookI’m so excited by my new Smash! books (Liz  should get a huge commission for all the extra sales she generated from this post) that I ordered another one, especially for you (all the way from the US – they’re not widely available in the UK just yet)!

The Gift Amy Palko recommended The Gift: How the Creative Spirit Transforms the World to me. So I bought an extra copy just for you! Because I reckon you and I will really transform the world (at least our corner of it).

mandala workbookSacred circles intrigue me so very much. So I got a hold of this fantastic book last year, The Mandala Workbook: A Creative Guide for Self-Exploration, Balance, and Well-Being. Guess what? I bought a copy just for you!

This is Not a BookI’d heard about Wreck This Journal before, but it was only when I came across a physical copy of This Is Not A Book when I was shopping with the teenager that I really got it. So I bought myself a copy – and an extra one just to give away here.

What I love about all of these books is that they’re not for ‘artists’. Anyone ::YOU:: can make use of them without any training at all. Anyone ::YOU:: can dive straight in and unleash (and understand more about) their ::YOUR:: creative spirit.

They’re not precious  – they’re fun. And they could be yours! (I’ll send them anywhere in the world.)  Just leave me a comment. Oh, and tell your friends. Ripples spreading…
