200th Blog Post Giveaway

Okay, here he is, the little giveaway piece for my 200th blog posting. That's right, this is the 200th post in less then a year. Wow, it has gone by really fast and I love this little blog world of ours and the friendships it creates!!!! To celebrate the occasion, I am giving away this silly little pumpkin boy with a bat flying overhead called "Gone Batty 2". It is a handmade original made of celluclay, paperclay, wire, raffia and a papermache box.

Now, to enter to win this little guy all you have to do is one of three things....(drum roll inserted here....)
1. Go to the right column down to the followers box and click on the follow button if you have a blog and become a follower of this site, and that will register you for the prize.

2. Leave a comment on this post and that will give you a second chance at winning the giveaway and leave me an email address to contact you.

3. If, and only if, you do not have a blog and the only way to contact me is by emailing me, you can email me at: and that will enter you into the prize giveaway as well, but you must also leave me a return email address for me to be able to contact you should you win.

I will run this for 7 days and will pull the winners name (number) out of the entries next Monday. If I am unable to contact you and you do not contact me within 7 days of the winning announcement, a second name will be drawn.

Whew!!! Okay, start your engines and I hope the winner likes the piece!!

Have a great week!
