Leftovers, Shmeftovers!

Good evening troops! D'ja just wake up from your Turkey-Day food coma? Or have ya been up since the buttcrack of dawn getting your (cough-INSANE-cough) holiday kickoff shop on? Either way, here's a couple things you should know:

(see? I SAID NO LEFTOVERS!) It's only on Facebook and only until December 1st. Better get there, cuz most items are one-offs and once they're sold that's it.

Original Art Giveaway!

Hello all, happy Monday to you!

I am doing a quick little drawing to give one lucky page fan an original piece of collage art - it's one of my favorites that I did back in 2007 titled "A Bird in the Hand" and is one of my creepy-girl type collage cards. It's 4x6 on watercolor paper and done with mixed paper collage and paint and ink. This style of mine came about after getting really into Teesha Moore's Zettiology, with a little bit of Misty Mawn flavor mixed in <3


To be included in the drawing you just need to go LIKE my gemgirlart fanpage on Facebook! I will use a random name picker to select a winner from all page likes on FRIDAY JUNE 20 - I'll announce the winner there , and will update here on the blog and on social media too.
So, thanks a bunch, and good luck!

We have a winner! Congrats, Maripat!
