100th POST GIVE AWAY.....

This Give Away is Closed

"The purpose of art is not a rarified, intellectual distillate ~ it is life, intensified, brilliant life."
Alain Arias-Misson
~Anna Corba's favorite quote~
In two more entries I will reach my 100th post and it is time to celebrate! I gave you a sneak peek of a part of the give away package at the end of a previous post, in case you missed it, here it is:Anna Corba is one of my favorite paper artists. I came across this little volume in a local book store a few weeks ago and thought it perfect for building around as a give away package for my 100th post. This hard back book like case includes a DVD where Anna gives you the exciting opportunity to learn from her, an expert in her field, how to create beautiful paper crafts. This volume features a dozen projects that Anna will walk you thorough on the DVD, teaching you to make your won versions of the designs. (Pictured below is my storehouse of ephemera!) Also included is a CD-Rom where you will find selected patterns, vintage post cards, and vintage embellishments for your paper crafts from Anna's own ephemera collection! When you insert the disk into your computer, it will automatically load and give you instructions on how to print the items you choose for your projects. The great thing about both of these items is that they can be used again and again! (Maybe this will be included!) The set also includes a beautiful full color project shopping guide which features pictures of the projects and a list of needed materials. (Or perhaps copies of some of these!) In addition to that, I will be including a package of ephemera, which I will be choosing from my own collection! There will be vintage sheet music, vintage French textbook and dictionary pages, book pages from a 1886 reader, as well as some more surprises! I haven't decided if I will send copies of the ephemera or if I will make a CD-Rom of them. Please state in your comment which you think would be a better idea. (Or these?)Also, I will be sending along some supplies and embellishments for finishing touches to your projects! I'll be pulling some sheet music from this stack:
AND, last but not least, I will include a custom made decorative storage box to hold all the items! (Maybe some of these lovely ladies will be included?) To sign up, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post. A winner will be chosen one week from today on Monday, April 21st!

Blessings on your week,
Miss Sandy

Hi...I'm not sure if I'm eligible for your contest but I had to leave a comment anyway. I have been enjoying your blogs for about a month now and have looked forward to reading them as well as the ones from your friends. It is all very inspiring and I thought I should tell you that. I have never left any comments on any of them so tonight was my very first (I had to sign up tonight in order to do so). I'm not sure I am even doing it correctly but I just had to let you know how wonderful you all make me feel. I enjoy the music you have chosen and I love all the stories of your families and treasure hunting and your busy lives. I use your blog as a starting place because yours was the very first one I found. Just had to let you know and wanted to thank you. Please keep up your good work...I love all the same things you do.

Pinkie Denise said...

Hello Dear Miss Sandy,
I want to say congratulations of your
100th post. You started you blog just about the time we did, in August of 2007. The day you started your blog Corey hosted a party at my mom's August 16th! We were introduced to some of the most amazing and artistic
woman ever...I have always admired Nicol Sayre's dolls and followed her, to my surprise she was standing in our living room! You probably heard my amazing story of Mabel Annie that came all the way from Texas and we met the imfamous Ullabenulla and her amazing friend Lea who's amazing heart left an imprint of me forever....and it was
a connection of divine orchestration for sure....I hope some day we will meet Miss Sandy and you will get to meet Corey too.
She has an amazing gift to connect people and bring them together...Love to you Pinkie Denise

Dear Miss Sandy,
Congratulations on your 100th post. It was so interesting to read about how you came to the blogging world. I can't wait to see who will win. I shall continue to imagine us as kindred victorian spirits living in this modern world. Bless you for incorporating our Savior in your wonderful posts. Keep up the good work.

Miss Sandy,
I came to visit to find inspiration and found that and so much more! I would vote for the disc although the actural materials would be a treasure to have also. Thanks for being out here for all of us bloggers to relish and enjoy! Happy 100th post and wishing you many more! And please put me in your give away drawing. Stop by my blog before Wed. and be sure to sign up for mine. (although it is not near as exciting - yours is WOW!) Blessings, Katie
