Giveaway on My Facebook Art Page

It's been a while since I ran a giveaway on my FB art page.   Things were going like crazy for a while and I simply didn't have the time to do much on that page, but now that I'm managing to pace myself a little better, I can do these once-a-month special events. :D


Please go to my FB art page if you'd like to be entered into this drawing at the end of the month.  This is a very nice, off white, 100% cotton canvas tote bag measuring 14" x 14" x 3", printed with my "Black Lace Angel Fish" design (print area is approximately 8" x 8").  The details of the crazy lace fins and tail are beautifully reproduced in this black and white image.  Quite stunning, if I may say so myself. XD

I usually only give away prints, so this is something different.  Yet it's practical for me to offer since it is lightweight and doesn't cost me a lot to ship if the winner happens to be from outside the US. ^^;   Once I made a mistake of offering a porcelain mug in a giveaway, which was subsequently won by someone in England.  The postage far exceeded the retail value of the mug itself.  Yeah, that one didn't make sense. LOL

Live and learn.  Now that I've been on Etsy for almost a year and a half and I've streamlined the shipping process and figured out where to buy my packing and shipping supplies, I won't be making that kind of mistake again. ^_^

I would like to also offer tea towels, but I have not been able to find a cost-effective solution (= a printing company with reasonable price structure for small businesses).  I've had offers from a few printers, but they always want such huge 'minimum', it's making me stop and think twice about the whole thing. ^^;

Meanwhile, the next product is in its planning stage.  I'm waiting to hear from the 'people' before I can mention it here.  *fingers crossed*
