As promised yesterday, we're having one more giveaway even though the CPSIA scare has been postponed. I was really glad that the donor was willing to still give this prize, because it's such a fun one: the artist Rachael Rossman has offered one of her Name Paintings! If you read Dooce, you've seen Rachael's work there.
I think this is a PRETTY SQUEEISH prize, and I don't know WHY I even DO these giveaways when all they do is make me ENVIOUS of the winners. But your happiness is my happiness, etc., etc., so let's do this thing!
The prize is one Name Painting, with, obv, your choice of name. (Tease: the real name of one of my kids is one of the samples.) She'll paint it to match room decor and interests, too, so, like, you can do a kid's name in pinks and princesses or in greens and sports or in pinks and sports, or whatever. You could also do it with a surname---it seems like that would make a good gift for parents or grandparents who are hard to buy for. Maybe not in the princess theme, then.
To enter, leave a comment on this post before Sunday, February 8th, at 4:00 p.m. U.S. Pacific time. (Need something to say? You could guess which name is the one that's the name of one of my kids, but I'm not saying if you're right or not so that's kind of an over-tease and maybe you just want to say your favorite color instead.) I'll choose one random winner to envy.
