Celebratory Giveaway!

OK, it's celebration time! I thought that reaching over 1000 hearts at my Etsy shop was something of a milestone, and deserved a big blog giveaway to celebrate. Plus, it's been a rather testing start to the year and I really need to do something cheery and fun! So, I am going to hold a draw here on the blog. The winner gets to choose their prize from my Etsy shop - 1 large print ( A4/ 8 x 12) or 2 small prints (A5/ 6 x 8). In order to enter, you need to leave a comment after THIS post, stating which print, or pair of prints, that you would like to receive if you win. You don't have to be a blogger, but if not, you need to leave me a way of contacting you should you win. It's open to anyone, anywhere in the world. I will close the comments next Friday 12th of February at 9 o'clock UK time, and draw a name at random.

And here is a peek at the first stages of the third hare quilt.
"Stook Deer"

Ooh what an exciting giveaway...although if I didn't win I may be tempted to buy my choices anyway..hehe :)

Speaking of...very difficult to choose but I have settled for 2 of the 6x8 prints.
Rabbit Boy & Foxhound Trio (I love that Hound colouring :) hehe)

Terra said...

Oh oh Danielle. I am very excited at your lovely contest.
I would pick Fox Girl and Fairy Kitty, each 6x8.
So many beauties here.

Catherine V. Bainbridge said...

Hi Danielle, what a lovely face you have. I don't think it was here before? But it's nice to see you. :)

I think I would choose two small prints, makes life a little easier since they're all so lovely! I would like Rabbit Boy and Sepia Hare please *:)

jojoebi-designs said...

a tough question..
it is a toss up between rabbit boy, heron girl and foxy girl, if I won I would have to buy one because I just can't decide!

Moose said...

I would cross my dew claws, if I had them, for my human mom..... Barn Owl and Owlet Moths, Hanging Out with the Chicks,Sepia Hare,Rosy Giraffe ....I had better stop!!
Tail Wags to you,

Victoria said...

i have so many favourites, hard to choose!:)
i guess i would take these two:

thank you for the opportunity:)!

Liz said...

Hi, Not sure how I stumbled on your blog but I enjoy the book list! I had just bought the Janet Bolton and your list prompted me to dig out Red Shift by Alan Garner, something I read as a kid but lingered in my mind. I am going to have to seek out the SUsan Cooper one too, I haven't read that - kids books are so much better than adults!
Anyway if I am the lucky one it was a toss between the owl, the badger or the crow - think I would go the badger and the crow

Congratulations on all of your hearts!

So many beautiful paintings to choose from.. I think my choice of print would be Owl Girl.

Looking forward to seeing "Stook Deer". Your WIP looks very interesting.


A mermaid in the attic said...

It would have to be 'Long Lugs'...he's my absolute favourite! And congratulations on 1000 hearts, wow!

Carol Anne Strange said...

Congratulations on the milestone, Danielle, and what a fabulous giveaway ~ oh, but how to choose with so many favourites? Well,the two smaller prints that particularly resonate with me are: The Herbalist and Anna & The Milk White Horse. Love them both! Have a wonderful weekend. x

Aisling Kiernan said...

Hi Danielle 1000 hearts is amazing and well deserved . Like everyone else I am finding it so hard to just pick one! Morning excercise just "spoke" to me though.
Happy paining and sewing!xx

Biddywink said...

Congratulations! It is easy to tell, from your offerings, why you've received so many hearts. :)
With such beautiful work it is hard to settle on just a couple.
I think Limpid Eyes must be one, as the majestic giraffe is my favorite animal. The Longest Night has stirring colors and lines that it has become my second favorite.

Kath said...

This is so exciting and so very generous. What a wonderful Valentines day present this would be for some lucky art lover!

Madeleine said...

What a generous offer - I would choose either the birds in nests or the trees.

What I would also really like to do is commission a work by you, of Austin - my cloud with a silver lining!

Gilli said...

My favorites? Queen of Crows, and Crow steals the Moon. Your work is amazing. A very generous give-away.

ale balanzario said...

I would chose the owl girl and the fox girl,


Karin said...

Love your work, so it would be too good to be true to win.

Rhandir said...

It's so hard to choose just one from so many, but for me it has to be "Long Lugs"

Cat said...

That latest fabric looks as if it'll make a fabulous background. I love what's happening with the applique hares. And it's either Red and the Robin or Ancient Cross for me, should I be so lucky!

Unknown said...

Very exciting! I love visiting your's part of my morning inspiration routine.

I love your crows...I'd have to chose 6x8s "Crow Contemplates the Moon" and "The Botanist"

Thanks for blogging!

Yarrow said...

Well done, that's an amazing achievement. I'd love to be in the draw, but couldn't begin to choose a print or two! So I'll leave my place open for someone else :)

It's been bit trying here too! Maybe it's just February blues.

Love your blog, love your art, especially love your slow quilts. Thank you for sharing them. Very inspiring. My favorite print would be the Young Crow.

Melly Testa said...

It would have to be Long Lugs because that is when I found you.
I just got my copy of Janet Bolton's book. It is amazing and you put the little nugget in there and made me want it!

Dragonfly said...

How lucky to have stumbled across your blog again, and just in time for this giveaway. Congratulations!

It is so difficult to choose a favorite from your works. I love crows, and it seems you have a fondness for them as well. I suppose if I had to choose, I would pick 'Swamp Crow 1.'

Karen said...

Congratulations on reaching 1000 Danielle. xx

What a lovely giveaway :)
Please include me.
Very difficult to choose?...
But... I think it would have to be
2 small prints:
The Botanist and The Herbalist

Congratulations Danielle, and thank you for offering such a generous giveaway in celebration!

To pick from your beautiful creations is very hard, for I love so many. But there is one I am continually drawn to,...'Forest Light'.

Thank you ever so much Danielle! I wish you a beautiful day!!

AC said...

AC said...

I forgot to say...
'In the Tea Garden' and 'The Woodland Edge' are my favs but finding it hard to decide which I like the most.

Alison said...

I love so many of your artworks, and have particularly been enjoying seeing you transform some of your designs into the media of fabric... Were I fortunate enough to be chosen, I would be to so happy to have a print of Long Lugs for the living room here at Acorn Cottage.

Unknown said...

Thanks ever so much for the give excited!

The Botanist and my very favorite... Crow Contemplates!

Marty52 said...

Oh, my... Congrats on 1000 hearts! As for the print, Forest Light speaks to me in so many ways that I would like the 8x12 of it should I be so lucky as to win. Love your art.

Nan and =^..^= said...

I had discovered you a while back through Yarrow and love your art and photography and animals etc. I find your part of the world so enchanting and inspiring!
It's very difficult to choose just one favorite but I've narrowed it down to the Watchmender!
best wishes!

Gail H. Ragsdale said...
