Contest is now over!

Knudsey likes to accuse me of trying to make money or getting votes, and I’m not saying he is wrong. This time, though, I’m all about the giving. I know! I’m fabulous that way. So I decided to enter the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival

bloggy carnival

Here’s what you do: Leave an actual comment, not a cut and paste thingie like “Count me in”. If you’ve never been here before, tell me that I smell nice or something. That reminds me. I totally need to hose myself off. Each comment you leave between now and Friday will go into the random number generator to come up with the winnah. One comment per entry, and that gives everyone five chances to win!

If you are really smart, you could subscribe to my feed. See the big shiny button thing in the sidebar? That one. I’m posting tomorrow about Skinny Bitch’s Boob job. You wouldn’t want to miss that would you? And then you can comment and get another crack at the prize. Bonus! I highlight my clever commenters each Sunday, and one of them gets an award. I have the best commenters evah. Be one of the cool kids.

Here’s what you get:

The artist, Doris Muise, made a series of this woodcut print especially for me, and hand coloured each of them. She did it to honour my totem vision of whale and eagle. She asked what about eagle was significant to me, and I replied that it was the eye, the seeing from a great height with clear vision. I only have four left of the series of 50. I will ship the print without a frame, as the framing is a personal choice. If you feel affinity for whale or eagle, or if you just appreciate powerful art, this is a must-have print.

So what are you waiting for? Subscribe to my feed and tell me you love me. By the time you read this, I should be smellng nice.

Memarie Lane Says:

You smell like a budding pink jasmine vine on a perky Spring morning.

I had a dream last night that the baby died and I had to have a D&C. Then I had another dream that the baby was born, but it was a boy. Then I had another dream that Jessamine and the baby boy were having a tea party on the edge of a very steep cliff. But with both Max and Jessamine I always dreamt the baby was the opposite gender, and I always dreamt that I’d forgotten Max somewhere.

daysgoby Says:

Wow, you smell great!

But you always do.

You know, that’s what I think I would like best about flying (If I could fly – not announcing any superpowers or anything)
is seeing everything, not necessarily the sensation of flight.

teeni Says:

I’m not new here so you don’t have to count me in for the prize – although it IS beautiful. You have some talented friends! But I did want to tell you that I figured out how to create my email me tab that was holding me up from going live with my new site. The answer was that I didn’t have to create one! D’uh! I guess it converted over fine from the free blog but I didn’t know it because all I could see was this: [form] or soemthing like that and I couldn’t see it unless I viewed the page instead of looking at it from inside the dashboard. D’uh again. LOL. So I should be going live soon! Just thought I’d share cuz I’m all happy and thankful for your offer of assistance. :)

Heidi Says:

(Sniff sniff) Do I detect a whiff of lavender? Lovely!

The block print is truly spectacular and I’d love to give it a home.

lceel Says:

Just as I was reading your post someone walked past my office and her scent drifted in the door. It is a very nice scent. One of those musky, heady things that just drive me crazy. Co-incidence? I think not. Love you. I have to go chase that woman now. Bye.

lceel’s last blog post..Spring has sprung

No need to count me in on this as the only eagle I need is the one tattooed on my shoulder but I feel I need to comment so you feel loved you altruistic giver you and I need all my good luck for my court date on Thursday which I can’t talk about so I’ll guess you’ll have to read about it in the paper but I’m innocent I tell ya, well ish.

I always assumed you smelled like alcohol and deep heat.

nan Says:

Skinny Bitch is getting a boob job??? Doesn’t she know that is SO last week? Right NOW, hangy-down boobies are IT! We hangy-downies are so cool, and we have somewhere to keep our pencils. We are cuter, smarter, and we smell nice too. And we can use our cash to go visiting our loved ones all over the planet! Instead of making our dumb boobies look all expensively 90’s. So there.

nan’s last blog post..Sunday morning

Kelsey Smith Says:

Beautiful! I love your blog thanks for entering my giveaway too!

Refereing to the search strings. How can you find out what your blog come up as?

iamthediva Says:

Y’know, with all that posting about farts and stuff, i’m not so sure you should be demanding that people tell you that you smell perdy. LOL.

My aunt was adopted, she’s Haida, and her grandfather did some of the totem poles at Stanley Park in Vancouver, anyway, when she was researching her family she was visited by her totem, an Orca whale. Since then, i’ve been extremely curious what my totem is, and envious of those who know theirs.

mp Says:

I really want that..it’s purdy…
And you totally smell like tulips!

Patti Says:

What a great woodcut! I wish mine looked that good!

Debbie Says:

Just yesterday my 14 year old son got in the car and said “Have you ever noticed that all families have their own smell?” He then went on to list several of our friends and their smells: dogs, musty things, etc. Made me very, very nervous. So, I don’t know what you, or I for that matter, smell like. But, I’m trying to find out!!

Valerie Says:

Well, I love drawing and therefore really appreciate art. This is a very lovely piece. Whale and eagle-how interesting (I didn’t really see the whale until it was mentioned though). Printmaking is kinda hard though, right? I did a cat one-and it turned out like crap!

Rachel Says:

GREAT giveaway!

It looks like we may be kindred spirits. :) I really enjoyed checking out your sites. Especially the one on readings. :)

But I really am glad I started poking around because I found the link to the Asperger’s site, and I needed to send that information to somebody today. So, thanks for having that up there.

Hey, if you have a chance, please stop by and visit my contest page too!

Thanks and have a lovely day!

You smell ripe. Take a nice hot bubble bath instead of a quick shower. That sounds like a great idea.

Tisha Says:

That is a cool print! I would love to put that in my apartment!


Tracey Chambers Says:

Im going to assume you smell wonderful. like honeysuckle. thats my favorite smell.

Talina Says:

How cool! I think the eagle is very captivating… There is just something about it that grabs me. The blog give away idea is fun also.. I think I may need to give something away!

Teri Meairs Says:

I was born into a family with ‘abilities’, but something we don’t talk about much to ‘Outsiders’. People tend to think your nuts….. Any way, whats the deal withthe Rose Quartz Crystal. Why would you pass it on? Does it have yucky aura? If not, Its way cool. Thanks for the visit.

Angela Says:

beautiful! I was actually just at the zoo and we have a brand new bald eagle exibit where our zoo’s eagle can overlook the lake.. its really pretty and actually really nice for a small zoo.. I just love visiting him.
