Woo Hoo! (A Giveaway)

Farb-Riese Color-Giant pencils & Anthropology goodies


I've had an exciting day in Blog Land and want share it with you! I. am. thrilled to have just received my 200th Follower, so to thank you properly, I took a trip to my fav store Anthropology so that I could offer you some pretty little things to go along with the set of 12 Farb-Riese Color-Giant Lyra pencils I've been saving for just this occasion. . .

If you've never tried these pencils before, let me tell you, you're in for a treat! They're bright, soft and easy to work with. They're fabulous for collage work, journals and for anything else you'd use colored pencils for. In addition, they can be both sharpened or cut with a craft knife to get just the edge you want for your arty projects. And because they work so much better when displayed in a pretty cup, I got one of those for you too. That was going to be it, but then I saw the most adorable kitchen towel with soft blues and a whimsical list of wedding anniversary gifts, so I picked that up as well. After all, if we use a pretty mug for our pencils, then we should also have a pretty towel in our studio to go with it . . .

So here's the deal: if you're interested in having these in your home, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post before Monday the 18th (midnight, PST) to be entered. I will select the one winner via Random Number Generator and announce it here the next day. If you would like to be entered and do not have a blog that I can link back to, please just leave your email so that I can contact you when you win.

That's it! Good Luck and Thank You for your support. It really means the world to me.
