inspiration monday - halloween giveaway!


today is halloween......it's a day to be inspired by some goofy fun!
it's a day of candy corn!  those little yellow and orange sugar triangles with white tips have been a favorite of mine since i was a kid (and i have all the fillings in my teeth to prove it!)




it's a day of mini pumpkins, extra large pumpkins, and every pumpkin in between.
and once the perfect pumpkin is picked, then the master-carving begins.




 it's a day of chocolate, nougat, peanuts, caramel and everything else that tastes great and has lots of calories........all wrapped up in a perfect little package of oooey-goooey mini candy bars.  this is another traditional favorite of mine.....not only on halloween,  but every day of the year! (my hips tell the story so much better than i ever could.)





and it's especially a day of trick-or-treating!  but i must admit, 
i've never been a big fan of the tricks....i'm all about the treats!  
and today i'd like to treat one of you with a giveaway for a seat in 
my online letterLAB class that begins on november 7th! 

all you have to do is leave a comment (just one, please!) on this post by 
wednesday, november 2nd at 8:00 p.m. (EST)!  
once the comments are closed on wednesday, i'll randomly choose a name 
and announce it on thursday, november 3rd!
please make sure that your comment either links back to 
your blog, or you leave your e-mail so i can contact you if your name is chosen!
(this giveaway is open to all those who are 18 years of age or older.)

and.....if you've already registered for the class, please join in the giveaway!
if your name is chosen, your registration fee will be refunded to you!

happy halloween!!  xox

{letterLAB is my new online class that is being offered over at creative workshops and focuses on cursive handwriting and different variations!  you can read more about it here!}

I would love a spot in your class. I almost laughed when I started reading your post, about candy corn, because it is the subject of my post today. I completed a whole sketchbook page full of candy corn. I hope you have a great day and I am excited for you about your class. I looks great.

Stephanie said...

I would love, LOVE a spot in your class. I have terrible handwriting and it always keeps me from journaling because I don't want to ruin the page.

I know everyone is going to enjoy your class!

And I love candy corn as well! Twice I've stopped at the candy store in the mall and bought a tiny scoop of the stuff. It's better...it's really fresh! So, how do you eat your candy corn? We bite the tips first. As if they taste any different! LOL!

Candy makes me happier than it should. I once worked in a candy store where we were welcome to eat as much as we liked. I gained about twenty pounds in three weeks, and unfortunately, I'm not joking...

I'd LOVE to win a spot in your class. I was planning on giving it to myself as a Thanksgiving treat, but this would be a great early treat for the holidays! Either way, I will "see you in class"!

chrissy said...

OH sweet sweet friend. I have missed you all these months. I finally have my computer again. And look at you..a class! What lucky timing to visit when you are having a give-away. This looks wonderful.
Can't wait to peek around at all i've missed this summer.

Ceparie said...

Wow, 138 comments already! Looks like lots of others appreciate your blog as much as I do. I especially like how you have mastered the art of handwriting in your art work and would love to participate in your lab to see if I can improve my own. Years ago, my great aunt gave me a copy of Palmer's Handwriting but I developed my own style instead. Also, in case you haven't heard, some public schools are dropping handwriting lessons due to high-tech gadgets making writing obsolete and I find this shocking and sad. I hope your lab is a great success and thank you for an opportunity to win.

That is one of the things that hold me back right now with my art journal pages so I'd love to win a spot in your Letter Lab online class so that I would become more confident in my lettering. Thank you for the opportunity of allowing us all to have a chance to win!

Hi Lori,
I love the idea of using my own handwriting to artfully decorate ATC's or journals or cards, etc, and what I've seen on your blog is wonderful and creative. I'm looking forward to taking your class whether I win it or not. Good luck to everyone who signed up.
