It's hard to believe, but I've made it to 1000 blog posts!!!
Inspired by blogs like SouleMama and Angry Chicken, on November 18, 2007 I started Ninjawoman, a place to share my art, crafts, recipes, and stories of day-to-day like as an artist/author/mom.
A lot has happened in (nearly) six years. I've published 3 books. I've learned how to cook gluten-free, casein-free, sugar-free. I no longer link people to my MySpace page. (Ha!) And Magoo has grown a ton.
When I saw that I was approaching my 1000th post, I figured I wanted to do something big: a prize bonanza to thank you all for stopping in, spending time with me, and leaving such wonderful, encouraging comments. (Sidenote: It's crazy to think of the people I have met over the internet over that years. It's truly a global community. Wild.) But this morning I had a better idea. Instead of one BIG prize, I decided I would do a bunch of small prizes. I want LOTS OF WINNERS!
Here are the prizes. Rules are at the end.
BOOK: MONKEY ONO.
Signed copy of MONKEY ONO.
BOOKS: NINJA PACK.
Signed copy of WINK THE NINJA WHO WANTED TO BE NOTICED and WINK THE NINJA WHO WANTED TO NAP.
CARDS: KID PACK.
You will receive 3 different packs of cards. A Wink pack, a Monkey Ono pack, and a Fable pack. Each pack has 4 blank cards in it. Each card is different.
CARDS: WATERCOLOR PACK.
You will receive 3 different packs of cards. A fish pack, a sumi-e bird pack, and a flower pack. Each pack has 4 blank cards in it. Each card is different.
(Remember my jewelry phase?)
One pair of celery green clay earrings with sterling silver hooks.
Silver plated pendant featuring a reproducing on my iris watercolor.
ART: MASTER ZUTSU COLLAGE.
Matted 11 X 14" original collage of Master Zutsu (from the Wink books.)
ART: SUMI-E WATERCOLOR
Title: Brach Study #1. Matted, 11 X 14" original watercolor painting.
Last item: KITLIT CRITIQUE
I will critique either 1 picture book text or up to 10 pages (double-spaced, 12 pt font) of a YA or MG manuscript.
This is a great prize for beginning writers or someone who just wants a fresh set of eyes on something.
Turnaround time: 1 week.
I'm going to do a separate drawing for each prize. If you want any of these little beauties, leave a comment on this post listing SPECIFICALLY what you'd like to win.
EXAMPLE: Betty might say: Enter me to win the ninja book pack and the earrings. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Then I'll enter Betty's name in the drawing for the ninja books and earrings.
You can say "Enter me in everything." Then I'll put your name in every drawing. You can enter for one prize, three prizes, all prizes, five prizes, whatever you want, but YOU CANNOT WIN MORE THAN ONE PRIZE. So if I pull Betty's name for the ninja book, and I also pull it for the earrings, she wins the first prize I pulled her name for and I'll pull a new name for the second prize.
Please be specific about which prizes you want and please leave your EMAIL in the comment so I don't have to track down a bunch of people. I will send you an email notifying you of your prize and request a mailing address. When I have everyone's mailing address, I will make a journey to the post office, tra la la.
I'll draw names in one week - on SUNDAY, August 4th.
GOOD LUCK and THANK YOU again for visiting my blog. I really appreciate it!
