a sketchy GIVEAWAY! (closed)

As promised and mentioned multiple times, I'm having a GIVEAWAY! There are a few reasons for this giveaway. One being, this is my 199th post on the blog...eek! Time has flown by fast...seems like just yesterday I was sitting in my room in Austin clicking "publish" for the first time. So much has happened between now and then...the Etsy shops, the website, more Italy travels...I'm excited to see how much will happen between this post and the 300th!

Another reason is that I also surpassed 100 likers on Facebook. It's currently at 108, pretty crazy. I also filled Terzo, which was a huge accomplishment for me! AND although it's been pretty quiet as far as being mentioned, the 24 before 25 list has been making huge progress too! Lots to be happy and thankful for. 

And so! The good part! As I mentioned before, while in Italy I was working on a series of postcards. I just finished up another one yesterday thanks to some rainy weather and lots of hot chai. This postcard is of the skyline of my town Castiglion Fiorentino in Tuscany. My friend and I trekked out into the valley and had the most gorgeous view of it at sunset so we did a bunch of sketches and color studies. And you can win this postcard! How you may ask...a couple of ways actually...

To enter you can do one or all of the following:
1. Comment on this post below (tell me what your dream travel spot would be!)
2. Comment on the post about the giveaway on my Facebook page
Extra entries: Like the Facebook page or heart my Etsy shop and comment back here telling me you did.
Or follow me with Google Reader, Bloglovin etc and comment back here telling me you did. 

Please don't forget to COMMENT HERE if you did any of the extra stuff! It will be a little tricky to keep track of new Etsy hearts/Facebook likes etc...

See how easy and how many ways there are to enter? I want this postcard to go to a lovely home! Tell your friends! If this all goes well, I may even have a surprise at the end... the giveaway will be open for a week. I'll pick the winner at random and announce the winner next Monday (12/10). Good luck! This giveaway is closed!

The verdict is in! Thank you everyone who entered/hearted/followed along! I really appreciate all the lovin'! The winner is...
Congratulations! And thanks again to everyone who entered! This giveaway went a lot better than the last one...I might do another one in January to celebrate my birthday. I have to start thinking about the next list too, 25 before 26 eek!
