January Component of the Month plus a Giveaway!

Another New Year and and another Component of the Month!

Since we have crossed the Winter Solstice threshold and safely survived the end of the
Mayan Calendar, I thought a whiff of spring palette with just a tiny smattering of snow was in order. :)



Challenge and Blog Hop


Here's how this will work (please read all the information carefully!)

  • I will give away 1 component to each of 3 winners selected randomly from those who leave comments below this post. The color sent will be a surprise for the winners.
  • Please include your EMAIL address in your comment so that I can contact you ASAP should you win.
  • Please - only leave a comment if you can commit to creating a finished piece and blogging about it within the time given.
  • The names of the 3 winners will be announced on the EVENING of January 6, 2013.
  • This giveaway is open to US, Canadian, UK and European countries.
  • The blog reveal will be on January 31, 2013. 

Note: due to the quick turn-around of this month's timeline, I will have to restrict participants to US only. Sorry!

Should you want to participate and your name is not drawn from the proverbial hat -
I will be listing MORE in my Etsy shop the week of January 7.

Stay tuned - this should be a ton of fun!

  2. Beautiful and yummy and they remind me of pie in a delightful way. It feels a little greedy to comment since I was lucky in Decemer... But how could I stay away! I'll half cross my fingers how's about that! emma@apolymerpenchant.com
