yay for free stuff!

alphabet soupIt’s contest time, all! I think you’re going to like this one. The grand prize….

A 12×18 Alphabet Soup poster print!

This was the doodle that started it all, and easily one of my most popular items. If you don’t have kids, consider it a jump-start on your Christmas shopping for your family or friends who do.

If that doesn’t motivate you, I’m also giving away some runner-up prizes–4 $10 gift certificates to use in either of my shops. That means there will be not just one but FIVE lucky winners.

There are four ways to enter, which means you can have up to four entries in the contest:

1) Leave a comment on this blog post. Visit either of my shops (sixhours or calobee) and tell me what your favorite item is. Make sure to leave a way for me to contact you, too!

2) Re-tweet the contest on Twitter by copying and pasting this message:

RT @sixhours Please enter me in the Calobee Doodles contest! http://www.sixhours.net/2009/11/23/yay-for-free-stuff/ #calobeedoodles #contest

3) Become a fan of Calobee Doodles on Facebook and leave a comment on the wall naming your favorite Calobee Doodles print.

4) Blog about this contest, making sure to include a link back to this entry – http://www.sixhours.net/2009/11/23/yay-for-free-stuff/

The contest runs until 11:59 p.m. on December 6. On December 7 I will collect all entries in a list and generate a random number for the grand prize winner, then four more random numbers for the gift certificates (one prize per person). This contest is open to U.S. and international participants alike! Gift certificates will be sent via e-mail with a code–you can use this code in the “message to seller” box at checkout and wait to pay until I’ve sent a revised invoice.

Good luck!

    Your work is lovely! My favorite item at sixhours is ‘bloom’ and at calobee it’s ‘april showers’.

    My favorite is alphabet soup and has been on my favorites list since I’ve been on Etsy. (Dec 2007!) I also love the Houses print.

  3. I suppose saying the alphabet is my favorite is too obvious, huh? Well, aside from that I love (and have been meaning to buy forever) the cupcake pins, and also “The Discovery”.
