1.01.2012

Hello, 2012. It's a Give-Away!


I was trying to think of a nice way to kick off the New Year, and giving something away seemed like just the thing. And as I'm currently elbow deep in creating a new cast of Wonderland characters, and I'm hoping 2012 is a Wonder-full year, Alice seemed a fitting candidate. So we're giving away a hand-painted Alice dolly that can be a necklace or an ornament.


And since giving something away seemed good,
giving away three somethings seemed even better! 

3 chances. 3 winners. 3 tiny Alice dollies.
Just leave a comment for a chance to win your very own handpainted Alice.
If you spread the word (blog/twitter/facebook/whatever) leave another comment for another chance.
If you're a follower (or become one) leave another comment for another chance.
We'll randomly pick 3 winners on Friday, January 20.

Good luck!

May the new year bring
The warmth of home and hearth to you,
The cheer and goodwill of friends to you,
And the delight of a childlike heart to you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All done now.

And the winners are here.

Thank you all for playing!
