Giveaway! New Spriggan pins up for grabs

DSCN5018

 

Rules & such:

  • Open to US residents aged 18 and over.
  • This giveaway is being shared on my hello, spriggan! website, on Facebook, and on Tumblr, but the promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook or Tumblr.
  • Sharing the details of the giveaway on those or any other platform would be awesome but does not constitute an entry.
  • Open from Tuesday, February 9th through Monday, February 15th.
  • Each day I’ll pose a Spriggan-related question, and commenting with your answer will count as an entry.
  • The questions will be answerable on my website and on Facebook, so if you answer in both places, that’s two entries. Only one entry per site per day will be counted.
  • All entries from both sites will be mixed together and a winner will be chosen at random.
  • Winner will receive one (1) Spriggan pin of their choice from those pictured above!
  • Winner will be announced on February 16th, 2016.
  • Winner must be willing and able to provide a valid US mailing address to which their pin will be sent.
  • In the event that the winner does not provide their information within 24 hours of being announced the winner, a new winner will be chosen, also at random.

I’ll be sharing the first question later today! I’ll also share more pictures of the pins as the week goes on– detail shots, process, packaging sneak peeks, etc. :)

 

New year, new things

Happy much-belated New Year and not really belated Lunar New Year!

2016 already feels like Year of the Changes for me. The first week of January, we packed up and moved down to Maryland for my husband’s new job. I’ve been keeping busy since then with unpacking and getting things straightened away. I’ve got a whole room to myself for a studio, which is fabulous. I’m still putting up shelves and doing a lot of reorganizing, but it feels great to have a functional workspace again!

I’ll be heading north to PA to put in some time in the greenhouse, as I’m still mostly in charge of the herb department, but the majority of my time this year will be spent focusing on my artwork. I’m going to be knuckling down and really investing myself in making my clay flowers, but I’m also going to do as much painting as I possibly can.

I’m doing some major restructuring of my online presence– my original Facebook page is now only for my flower-making, and I have a new Facebook page for my Spriggan artwork. I’ve also created a new website just for my Spriggans (which is still under construction). This site will stay the same, a general blog and portfolio and place to share news about everything I’m making & doing, whereas the others will be much more specific.

To kick things off, I’ll be having a giveaway for a Spriggan pin of the winner’s choice, which starts today and runs through next Monday. Details to follow!
