my winter/new year/holiday giveaway ...

brrr ... it's cold here!


even the wild turkeys think it's nippy!




i hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season ... it's been a mixed bag here ... lots of folks here are down with that cold that's going around ... including me ... still! ... alexandria and ledger too ... i swear i've never see so much snot in my whole life ...

did i just say "snot" in my holiday giveaway post? ... i guess i did ... but at least i didn't tell you about the stomach flu everyone had ... :)

so, it's that time of year ... giveaway time ... actually i'm a bit late in doing my holiday giveaway ... but anyway ... i'm going to have

three prizes ...

first ... the print of your choice from my etsy shop

second ... a small print of your choice

third ... mini print of your choice ...

all you have to do is leave a comment below that is something i can recognize you from ... of course, i'd love it if you followed my blog ... but it's not required for the giveaway ...

i'll be drawing the winners on new year's eve at midnight ...

good luck, much love, happy holidays, and a fabulous new year to you all!

xoxo

I can completely understand about the cold. We got over a foot yesterday and are getting 5 more centimeters tonight.

P.S. I love you work. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of salt do you use on your backgrounds to get our lovely effect?

Hey Lisa! It's Tracee from Ning and ArtPlayWithTracee from You Tube! Please enter me in your giveaway. I would love to win this one! Your artwork is divine. I am currently, in Iowa, under an inch of ice. It's pretty, but dangerous. Come to think of it, I have a couple of friends like that! LOL Happy Holidays, and I hope that you manage to stay a wee bit warmer than me! Brrrrrrrrrrrrr . . .

Patti said...

Hi: We haven't met but I joined the 3-week challenge and am, of course, late with everything! Except for snot! (Did I just say that in a comment?!:)
We're all sick too, so I can surely relate. Unless there are two Lores in the art world, she and I are in a group together.
Hope you get healthy - come visit sometime - I'm looking forward to roaming around your blog!

Melissa said...

What a generous offer in the best of the spirit of this beautiful season! I just hung up a "Bird in the Hand" print today. It's got to be one of my favorite pieces! I finally got it framed.... Love it and would love to have more of your gorgeous art! I'll definitely be following your blog. Thanks again for sharing!! Melissa

Hey Lisa! It's Paula, your fellow raw-foodie wanna-be and former Michigander now in Phoenix. Does that identify me? lol Oh to win one of your lovelies would be wonderful! I do miss Michigan sometimes, but not with as much snow as you folks have had this past week. Stay warm and have a fantastic holiday season! :-)

Jeanette said...

Hi Lisa,
I love your blog and of course your art. I am the proud owner of some of your prints from you being my most amazing secret santa. I am planning on framing them and putting them up where I make my art. Although i think my 19 year old daughter wants to take a couple to college.
Thanks again,
Jeanette ( from 3weekchallenge)

Teresa said...

Lisa, I am sorry to hear you guys are under the weather too. I laughed when I read your bulletin on MySpace...holiday give away and snot... hummm...
It has been the same down here in TN. Everyone has had lots of the same kinds of illness is sounds.
I hope you get to feeling better before Chrismas arrives.
Many blessings and hugs!
Happy 2009!

Lisa, you bring unique and beautiful scenery to our eyes with your art, and you have become my favorite artist. I stumbled upon it on the internet looking for moon paintings, and luckily found you. I plan on having a remiart work in each room of my house someday, and I've passed down my appreciation of it to my 8 year old daughter who also loves your work. I wish you much continued success! Happy Holidays and try to stay warm!!

Debs Truman said...

Merry Christmas, Lisa!
We don't know each other personally, and I treasure the Christmas card you sent me last year!!!!
I love your work and would be thrilled to win! I was in Wyoming, but now I am in Florida.
Love You!,
Deb

Hi Lisa
I know it has been awhile, I have just gottin moved into my crazyest project to date. I bought a huge old house for $5000. and have been fixing it up. It has been 2 tough years now but I moved in on thanksgiving weekend. Its liveable but still needs massive work. I got down sized, the boot!!From my job with NCM, oh well I found a job at a sporting goods store as a seamstress. I love it! more later. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas. Fondia

Wendy said...

I haven't had much luck with contests, but if I won, it would be the best Christmas present especially since we only bought for the kids this year.

I hope you feel better soon. I had that cold that turned into a double sinus infection at the end of Oct and thru Nov...not fun.

I love your work and I will add you to my bloglines. :)
