98th Post: New/Old Projects & GIVEAWAY!

Sorry for the week-long delay this time around!  (I've had company.)  Here are some more cards I made for some favorite peeps, once again out of the collage I made here. (Remember to click on the image for a better view.)

Today, I am making a few more cards, but more than anything I am hoping to get to this project.  I started this painting about 2 years ago, and once I got it to this stage, I put it away, uninspired.  My style has developed since then, and when I was forced to bring it out into the light a couple weeks ago, I hung it up and was able to see it with fresh eyes.  I can't wait to get going on it again.  I think it will look much different later on.  Of course, you will get to see the final product when it happens!

Finally, the winner of the last blog giveaway was Kyran!  Thanks for liking me on Facebook, Kyran!

This week, I am giving away 10 handmade envelopes.  Many of you know that I have made envelopes out of old calendars for years.  I blogged about it awhile ago, here.  I am planning to share a booth at a craft fair in August in Aurora, and am considering selling these.  

To enter this week's giveaway drawing, you can do one or more of these things:

1.) Fill out my "Up-cycled Envelopes" poll to the right and leave a comment below saying you participated (along with anything else you'd like to say).
2.) Like Parsley Art Studio on Facebook!  (Anyone new since July 19 will be entered.)
3.) Tell your friends!  For anyone who either leaves a comment (and tells me you sent them) and/or becomes a follower, you get another entry.

Anyone can enter--I'll send this set of cards anywhere in the world and include envelopes for each card.  This drawing will close at midnight (mountain time) on Tuesday, August 2, and I'll announce the winner in my next post.  Remember to come back next week for another giveaway (one each week through my 100th post), and good luck!

I voted "other" on the poll, only because all of the options seem reasonable, but since I know how much time actually goes into making the envelopes I want to say they should cost $3! That won't work, so I would be more apt to think selling them as a set of 2, 3, 5, etc, but with a card and a label sticker might be the most appealing and best presentation/ ROI for you.
