The three give-away winners were chosen yesterday! Hooray!

I would’ve posted this earlier, unfortunately, we had some behavioural issues with Lydia and spent the majority of our evening off-line. She was relatively good for the 3 minute video, as she hates having her bad antics caught on tape. Joe has threatened to install security cameras throughout the house… lol

So here are the results of the drawing:

The first prize, an original acrylic painting of a kimono/geisha cat, is going to: John Harper!
(He will have the ability to select the cat breed, color scheme, and kimono design)

The second prize, a fantasy photo-manipulated portrait, goes to: April Carty!
(Using one of her photographs, I will create a digital collage in a theme of her choosing)

The third and final prize, an open-edition art print from my Etsy shop, belongs to:
Ginger Scharnhorst – a.k.a ILoveHelloKitty on Etsy!
(she may choose one of my pieces printed on archival paper, and
listed for $15 or less)

I will contact the winners today, to request their preferences for the portraits/prints as well as to receive shipping addresses for mailing their prizes.

I really appreciate everyone who answered my call for entries, promoted on my behalf, and for my established fans who came forward to take advantage of this great offer… I’d like to give everyone a token of thanks… so I will give all my Facebook fans Free Shipping for the month of December (applies to my Etsy and Artfire shops… I can’t control Zazzle, unfortunately).
Those of you who haven’t yet used the 50% off coupon you received upon joining, are still able to use it as well for an even sweeter deal. 🙂

To use your free shipping and/or 50% off code:
When checking out in my Etsy shop, type the code into the “message to seller” box. You can also remind me with “free shipping for a fan” in the box… though I typically check my roster of names to see if you’re already a fan. lol
Please DO NOT pay the invoice Etsy prompts you with…
Etsy will alert me via e-mail that I have a sale (but the buyer hasn’t paid yet)… I will re-adjust your invoice in PayPal to reflect the discount and/or free shipping, and will e-mail the revised invoice through PayPal. You can still leave feedback etc…

My Artfire shop will accept your 50% off coupon code automatically through their awesome check-out, however they won’t allow multiple deals/coupons to be used on one order.. so for Artfire purchases, Facebook fans will have their shipping refunded.

Again, I’d like to congratulate the winners, and look forward to keeping myself busy with projects over the next few days… and I’ll have some awesome new artwork to share with everyone. 🙂
