My 300th Follower... 200th Post, ... and 40,000th Hit Giveaway!

I know. I'm gobsmacked, too! That's a lot of followers! That's a lot of posting! That's a lot of hits! That's a lot of new and treasured friends! I'm just stunned.
I am so excited that I have met so many totally cool, talented, generous, kind, and wonderful people as a result of blogging my life away! And I'm doubly grateful and honored to have so many artists and crafts(wo)men as followers. We all know how much recognition from your colleagues means!

I have decided to make this a giveaway a stash-for-the-greedy-artist prize! Face it. We all want to own every art and craft product made - and would appreciate a heads up when new things are going to be available so we can decide what we need to survive before they even exist!

So ... here's my collection of terrific treasures that I just never got around to using. And somebody really SHOULD be using them!
First up is a set of 30 luscious, pigmented Caran d'Arche water-soluble crayons. These are the best blending crayons I've ever used. And the colors are so wonderful I want to just eat them!

Next is a set of 24 Prismacolor Premier colored pencils. These are also highly pigmented with thick heavy cores and very rich ... and they blend like a dream, as well!
For those who just love distressing the heck out of everything, this is a fun distressing kit by Making Memories. I assume it was meant to use for scrapbooking ... but I have several of these, and use them when I'm making ATC's, collages, mini-theatres, etc. It's kind of amazing how old you can make your new stuff appear!
Don't all altered artists need every shade of every color of stamp pad manufactured? This collection of 24 is by Anna Griffin. As silly as it sounds, these are the 'juciest' stamp pads I've ever used - and the colors are especially nice for vintage style work. The shades are muted and dusty, but high quality and give clear, crisp images. I love these.
And, finally, a ten color set of Pebeo Setacolor transparent fabric paints. I have found these to be the most versatile for painting fabric - and the fabric doesn't get hard! I also like the transparent color that allows original colors and patterns to show through.

And, of course, I'll add in some papers and ribbons and little surprises - and some sparkles and glitters because ... well, because it's me! - to get you inspired to make something beautiful!

To enter, if you're a follower, just leave a comment on this posting. If you're not a follower, become one and join!

If you'd like to double (oooooooooooooh!) your chances, write about this giveaway on your blog, and then comeback and leave the link here in a second message.

I hate to be stern LOL, but, as I want to use the automatic number generator, please only leave one post if you're not going to mention this giveaway on your blog. I'd have to delete the second message to make it fair for everybody. And I don't want to do that. Because this is a happy giveaway!

Good luck! I wish I could make each and every one of you the winner. But, well, we all know how that goes!

Again, I can't begin to tell you how much your visits and comments and emails brighten and enrich my day!

Enjoy your day, stay warm if you're living in the cold zone, and pray for the survivors of the Haiti earthquake ... and, you know what you have to do now ...

... go make something beautiful!

Edited to add: Ooops! Forgot to post an ending date! As "One World, One Heart" begins on January 24th, I think I should end this on Friday, the 22nd. (Thanks for pointing that out Gypsy Lulu!)

KarenHarveyCox said...

As my good friend Judy would say...
oooh, oooh, oooh! At least that is what I hear from an aisle away whenever we go shopping. Your giveaway is amazing. And now I know just what my P.S. will be on my Pink Saturday post.

I love your blog and you always make me laugh and ooh and aah about your eye candy. I found a blog this morning, and thought Tristan would love this one. A Gift Wrapped Life, and she really outdid herself on this post...

http://agiftwrappedlife.blogspot.com/2010/01/making-me-happyblog-links-this-week.html#comment-form

She is an eye candy extraordinaire.

Congratulations on your 200th post and your 300th follower.

Margi said...

Congratulations Tristan! As a Mav, you so know I'm a follower of yours. My Krissy is sitting here freaking out because of the colors and prisma pencils. She keeps hollering "Mom, what exactly is the matter with him giving those away!" LOL Needless to say, noone, not even me, is allowed to touch her prismas. I told her to get a blog started and enter too! She just shakes her head at me and says "it must be the Mav in the two of you!" LOL Keep the posts coming, yours is one I check as soon as it pops up on Google Reader!

claudie said...

i remember first meeting you on Blue Monday. I was wondering why a "man" was posting with all the "women". Well you sure are a big hit. Congratulations Tristan. Haven't we all grown in the past year?
I'm scrolling down...now that wheel chair is over the top! My dad was in a wheel chair at age 21. He lost his legs in the war. He would think this chair was WoW.
Your Wizard of Ox ornies are beautiful.
I ADORE the embroidered pillowcases from Marilyn... love those.
Your FABULOUS Box from Debi OMGOSH Tristan. How fun is that?
Ok enough again congrat's.
I will leave your wonderful giveaway to some other lucky winner.
Very generous indeed.
Love Claudie

Tristan,

You don't need to include me in the drawing - but, I did want to thank you for always being so encouraging ... ever since we met on that Yahoo group ages ago - I have found inspiration from your website and your blog. And, I love your sign off on your blog - many a day - I've finished reading blogs and gone "and made something beautiful!"

I so appreciate your friendship and inspiration!

Laume said...

And I put up a post about the giveaway here: http://laumesstudio.blogspot.com/2010/01/my-friend-tristan-has-saved-you-from.html Thanks for giving me something to post about as I don't have much going on in the studio except decluttering and mending. Not very photogenic activities. I also left a link to your etsy and borrowed an image from there to give folks a taste of your work. If that isn't okay with you, just let me know and I'll take the image down.

Well, I've followed your blog for a while now, but it was never "official." I just made it official! I'm the cute little guy with the white and black shirt and no legs. I have no idea what happened to my legs, but it must have been awfully traumatic! Have a great Saturday.

Bill

joan.b@hive.is said...

HI There Tristan
What a giveaway.. fantastic!! I just came over from Tamerie's blog and so pleased i did... Your blog looks fascinating... I will of course follow and will have a good browse through soon...

Your great giveaway.. and more the way you describe these items so enthusiastically, remind me of my coloured pencils I craved and coveted as a child.. They were Derwents and I had to hide them from my brother who would nick them and carve his own name down the side... big brothers... what can you do? Thanks for the opportunity.. Julie

Vic said...

Wow.

Excuse me while I sit in stunned silence for a while, that is, I believe, the best giveaway I have EVER seen in blogland.

Congratulations on that alone!

So many posts, so many followers, what an exciting time for you! Hurray for reaching some amazing milestones, & here's to many more.

Now if you'll excuse me, I do believe I have a facinating new blog to explore, all the while with crossed fingers & toes (I'd cross my eyes too but that would make it hard to read...) in the hope of winning such art-tastic goodies!!

**fingers crossed!**
