inspiration monday.....and a giveaway!



a little over a year ago i received an invitation from 
the very talented jenny doh asking if i'd like to participate in her upcoming book,
well,  it took me about 30 seconds to send her my response!
and now after a lot of hard work from her design team,  publishers, and
 all the other contributing artists,  this dream has become a reality! 
i am absolutely giddy-as-a-schoolgirl,  and so very honored to have 
my artwork appear with these 15 fabulously brilliant lettering artists!
(one of whom is my very dear friend martha lever!)






inside,  there's a reminder to always follow your heart, 
and my little thumbuds even make an appearance..... 





along with one of my favorite quotes by benjamin franklin.





but the best part of all is i'm in the mood to celebrate, and
i have an extra book that i'd like to share with you!
so let's give our monday a shot of inspiration
with a creative lettering giveaway!!
:))

to enter, all you have to do is leave a comment here on this post 
(just one per person, please!) by 10:00 p.m. EST on wednesday,  february 20th. 
a name will be chosen using the random integer
and i'll announce it on thursday, february 21st. 
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 bloggy sweeties who are 18 years of age or older.)

{you can read more information about "creative lettering" here,
along with a list of the other contributing artists!}
