    contact me at with your mailing address and I will ship them out!
    This was my first, EVER, give away and I had fun (hope you did too). I am going to try to do one once a month with my creative commitments and draw more participants (to make "randomizer", well, more random - ha!) My creative commitment this month is 31 variations of milkweed. DAY 22 was a result of my creative commitment in October.

    keep creating...everyday!

    1. I'm so happy I won! I wrote you a note on your main website. Looking forward to seeing your beautiful art in person!
