A little while ago, I put my name down on Artboy68‘s website to be a part of his 100 Portraits Project.
My Gravatar was chosen for portrait number 81, and just a day or so ago it arrived in the post, looking even lovelier in real life (massive thanks from me!):
You might also remember I recently held a giveaway - which, after picking names out of the air (I threw numbered pieces and chose one at random) the winner, through a bizarre coincidence, was Artboy68. Right now over on his blog he’s talking about the parcel he received, which contained the photo booklet and a number of other random Scottish goodies.
In other news, I’m reading the first book of the American Indie Press Haul of Wonder: Glaciers by Alexis M. Smith and have been blurting on my twitter and tumblr about how much I love it so far. I have to resist the urge to start talking about it already. Nope. Must. Go. Finish. Last. Pages…
All the numbers, written on environmentally friendly used envelope
So! There were 24 comments left on the giveaway post, discounting any doubles and my response.
I wrote all the numbers out on the paper above, shuffled them, and took them into the hall, where the early afternoon light was shining to a moderate brightness…
tossed the numbers in the air and closed my eyes -
The first number to hand was 23…that means Artboy68 you are the winner of the photobook/random assortment of goodies!!!
Artboy68 has just drawn my picture over on his blog as part of his 100 portraits project. I was going to put that in a separate post later but since he won I’ll link right now. It’s by complete chance and the whims of the throw that he won – I did everything blind and haphazardly. I lack the card-counting skills to get thrown out of the big casinos, honest.
Thank you all so much for entering, and I’ll have another giveaway the next time something nice and shareable falls into my hands. I hope you’ve enjoyed this as much as I have.
