I can hardly believe it, but I've written 100 posts since I started this little blog of mine back in February. As a huge thank you to all my friends, new and old, who read The Magpie's Fancy, I'm offering a giveaway. To enter the drawing, just leave a comment between now and midnight Tuesday the 15th when I'll choose a winner at random. What's the prize, you ask?
Well, it includes a few goodies I've been gathering: some gorgeous colored artist pencils, a pretty notebook for daydreams and flashes of inspiration, a few special vintage trinkets and lovely baubles that I've discovered in the shops in Portland's Old Port, plus a signed copy of my new poetry chapbook, Learning to Tell Time, which recently won the Midnight Sun Chapbook Prize from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. UAF published it this past month, and it will be my pleasure to share it with one of my friends.
When I first started blogging, I had no idea what it would bring to my life. Little did I know that just around the corner waiting for me were so many awe-inspiring people who treasure beauty, creativity, and authenticity just as much as I do. It has been a huge joy to meet you folks, and I feel like this is only the beginning of the journey!
So, please leave me a comment, and be sure to check back here after Tuesday at midnight to find out who won. Oh, and don't let location stop you from entering. It doesn't matter where you live; I'll be happy to ship these goodies anywhere in the world. That's how much I adore you.
P.S. The cover painting on the book is by the very talented Nancy Nichols. My photo above doesn't do it justice.
