  51. Am I allowed to win more than once?…If I can, let it be now =)

  52. You did a wonderful job assembling such a fabulous assortment Amy. πŸ™‚

    I think my most favorite has to be Aijung Kim…but I am kinda biased as I have been a follower of Aijung’s for a while, collecting her mini books off Etsy as they appear. I have a special little display for all of them now as my friends love to read through them all.

    As for the rest who are all so lovely…

    Beavory’s work caught my attention as I love high contrast and line art.

    YAY Beverly! Looking forward to seeing your journal at the Sketchbook Project stop in Winter Park. Mine will be there too! LOVE Beverly’s coffee pins, so very cute. (Also, thank you Beverly for the link to Rosie Hardy, phenomenal photos.)

    Jeanne’s painted pieces are so whimsical and cute, love the colors. Bet her zine is adorable.

    Juliana’s little puffy white stars are so cute. I’d fill a Christmas tree with them. hehe

    Love Pintameldia’s “I bring the magic, you bring the cookies”. It so reminds me of when my best friend and I get together. Will have to pick up the Family card game for my own family, very cool.

    Lovely drawings by Lori Dean. My daughter loves the curled up cat. hehe

    Being that I am sick right now I can relate to Judy’s sleeper painting. LOL Lovely work.

    Mellybee’s doodles are so cute!! Love the leafy scally-saur creature. hehe

    The panda and cat illustration in the “Better Together” zine by minifanfa is PRECIOUS! My boyfriend loves pandas so I can related. hehe

    All of Missy’s stuff is adorable, love the wood pins. Will definitely check out her zines. (And thank you for the Papersnitch link.)

    Katie Green’s site itself is a work of art, really love it. MUST HAVE PLUSHIE FOOD! Awesomeness.

    Katie Allen has some nice graphic design pieces. I had to laugh about the “I’m Blogging About Blogging” one. hehe

    Think that covers all of them. LOL Great assortment of styles. Looking forward to seeing them all whether win or purchase. Keep up the great work Amy!

  56. Fanny says:

    Awesome giveaway! =) I love your blog.

  57. Nelka says:

    There were so many things I liked about so many of the artists. But I must admit, I absolutely love Beverly Ealdama. Her work is fun and I love the sketchy style she puts to use in her messages. Plus, she’s just plain inspiring with her sketchbook work and article on how to make art everyday.

  58. I’m a fan of Miss Kulik and Kaite Green and well all the lovely illustrators. Hard to chose just one. But this truly is a wonderful giveaway
