Apr. 24th, 2008 @ 09:21 pm I'm having a GIVE-AWAY!
Current Mood: geekyGonna give one away!
ETA: May 2, 2008
Surprise, we drew TWO names. Those names were;
goadingthepen and
lillpluta CONGRATULATIONS.
Read all about it and see the pictorial proof in this post.
Thank you to everyone who came and played. I hope to do this again in July, just in time for the SCBWI LA summer conference. I hope you will all come back and play again.
All best,
Angela

I would like to give away one item from my CafePress shop;Pickled Pixel Toe to one lucky person. So this is what I'm going to do; I'm going to have Son#2 draw a name out of a cardboard box...unless I can come up with something more clever. I'll close the entry at 3pm Friday May 2nd when Son#2 gets home from school, then we'll print names and do the drawing. I'll announce the winner Friday evening. ETA:This is all happening on Arizona time, just in case you were wondering.

So, if you want your name put in the box, leave a comment in this post telling me which item from my shop that you would like to win. If you want your name put in twice, post this on your blog with a link back here and leave me a comment telling me that you have done so.

There is a second wildcard game too: anyone who finds an item with a typo on it wins the item of their choice as long as they are the first ones to report that typo. (Geeze! Yes, I found another typo in my shop! I shouldn't be allowed to have a shop in the first place!)***EDIT TO CLARIFY: I'm talking about typos on the products themselves, typos in the description copy I can handle. lol!

Thanks! I can't wait to see what items you like and I really can't wait to give one away!
I hope you will have as much fun with this as I'm having!

Gee willikers ... I can only pick one?

Okay then... Creative Muse Creative Mews on the yellow T-Shirt.

And I posted about your contest on my blog.

I hunted for typos. I couldn't find any.

Two entries for you!
The yellow shirt is pretty, I hope the actual shirt is as vibrant as the picture. I'm sure it will be.
I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that you didn't find any more typos! I had to ask CafePress to send out FIVE replacement shirts because of me and my flawed brain! I'm seriously doing a chair dance over here because you didn't find any...wheeeee!

The "Over the transom" tote bag would be good for conferences. ^_^

P.S. I saw your movie/ad and it was cute, but might work better broken into two or three parts for internet attention spans.

So you've got one name in the drawing.

I loved the Fast food t-shirt. Hilarious!

My choice though is the large coffe mug w/ Don't talk to me I'm revising!

I can pump up the caffeine and send the message to all the boys in my house at the same time.

I will message again after I post this on my LJ!

Looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks! (Gah, even as I write that I get all nervous that I might miss it again for horrible reasons...I'll just think positively and breathe.)

Wow, your stuff is really cool. Somehow I'd only seen the conference stuff and not the muse stuff.

I can't really choose, so if I win, I'd like either the "My Muse Has Issues" or "My critique group understands me" with all the aliens.

This is a great contest. Good luck to everyone!

I'm getting the muse with the restraining order on a shirt to wear to our local conference in a couple of weeks. I'm also getting the bag that says my critic can beat up your critic...I'll be like violent contradiction everywhere!

Also, I found a typo on this page:

http://www.cafepress.com/pickledpixeltoe/5006872

The caption underneath "My muse needs to be medicated" reads as "My muse needs to e medicated."

Will be back tomorrow with my choice, just in case ... :)

I may well be revising, but with nine kids, "Don't talk to me" is a sure winner regardless.

But I'll still talk to the little people, no worries...I wonder where those darn Smurfs have gone to anyway?
I so heart the Anon! I want to give her something...we need one of those super secret anonymous drop off places. You know, where you need a certain password and you hand the goods over to someone who has had their face rearranged a few times and likes it that way? Then they pass it on to the Ed Anon.
I heart you too Julie, you've made me feel so good and happy about my 'lil Pickled Pixel Toe!

give away

(Permanent Link)
Because I NEVER win when names are drawn from a hat, I feel I must
submit my name. (ha) Also, I LOVE the "Don't talk to me- I'm revising" T.

When my name was placed with ONE other teacher's name in a hat (to attend
a conference in Denver) guess who didn't win? Yeah. That's right.
