Giveaway: Bookshelf Clean-Out!

It's time for another giveaway! 

I am in the process of cleaning out my bookcase of art and crafting books, in order to make room for the new titles that are always steadily rolling in.
To that end, I am offering some books and magazines to you, lucky readers, if you care to enter my giveaway. 

There will be three winners!!

I will draw three names.  The first name I draw will receive:
  • The Autumn 2011 issue of Mingle by Stampington & Company.  I won this magazine in a giveaway by Quinn MacDonald, and now I'm ready to "pay it forward."
  • The Rubber Stamp Album by Joni K. Miller and Lowry Thompson.  I have a copy of this book, and then found a second copy at a library book sale in my community for $1.  It is such a fun book that I picked up a copy specifically to give away to one of my readers.  The book calls itself "the complete guide to making everything prettier, weirder, and funnier.  How and where to buy over 5,000 rubber stamps.  And how to use them."  This is a very diverse, fun book.
The second name I draw will receive:
  • Collage Art:  A Step-by-Step Guide & Showcase by Jennifer L. Atkinson.  The book includes chapters on paper collage, fabric collage, collagraphy, and found object collage.
  • Let's Get Hitched!  DIY Wedding Lookbook from Mollie Makes out of the UK.  I have a subscription to this magazine (a Christmas gift from last year!), and this supplement came with one of my issues, back in the spring of this year.  Lots of fun wedding-themed craft projects.
And the third name I draw will receive:
  • Issue Nineteen of Mollie Makes magazine out of the UK.  I accidentally tore one page out, but tucked it back in again!  Learn how to make Liberty fabric leaves, a plush hoglet, granny square slippers, braided earphones, and more!
  • Layers:  Inspired Collage for Paper Projects with Meaning, by Shari Carroll.  Her projects include swatch books, cards, coasters, frames, boxes, outlet plates, bracelets, and journals.
To enter:
Leave a comment on this post, giving me the name and/or web address of a web site or blog you like to visit that I might not have heard about before.  I'm always on the lookout for fun, creative, interesting new places on the Internet to visit.  Make sure I know your email address so that I can contact you if you win.

Remember, include an interesting new name or web address for me check out in order to be entered into the drawing!

You have until Friday, October 19 to enter.  I will draw a name and annouce the winner on Saturday, October 20.

Good luck!

Andria -- how fun. A give-away. I have my eye on that rubber stamp book. I was going to suggest Mary Ann Moss's lovely blog, Dispatch from LA, but I see someone beat me to it. I'm not sure which blogs you already follow -- if you don't know about it, I Am Rushmore and Mail Me Some Art, Karen's blogs are both wonderful.

iamrushmore.blogspot.com
mailmesomeart.blogspot.com

and you MUST know about my pal Jennie's blog
RedLetterDayZine.wordpress.com

and of course you already follow my blog....
hum...
I'm still thinking....

PamelaArtsinSF said...

PS OK, now I see you already know about Karen's blogs... how about
talltalesfromkansas.typepad.com ????

This is Mary Ann's sister and she has some lovely posts too...

Any of these giveaway packs would thrill me!
I recommend the Danish Woven Paper Heart Baskets- a great way to use old wrapping paper.
