***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – see who won below!***
Random.org has surprised us this week and selected a male winner for the first time in foreverrrrrrr (shocking, we know). His name is… Thomas (and he’s looking forward to time off this holiday season). Congrats dude! (Congrats buddy? Congrats fella? I dunno, I’m so used to saying “Congrats ladies” I’m kinda at a loss).
One of our favorite things to give are custom house portraits (we’ve actually purchased two for my parents in the last year – and even bought one for ourselves). So as we enter the giving-est time of the year, we figured it would be fitting to give one of you the gift of a house portrait too. We recently discovered Rebekka Seale’s too-charming-for-words illustrations (Sherry’s ridiculously smitten), so wrangling her for a giveaway was at the top of our holiday to-do list. Happily, Rebekka was game. So she’s here to offer up a gift certificate for a custom house portrait along with the winner’s choice of any art print from her Etsy shop. Feel free to keep them for yourself, or wrap ’em up and put them under the tree for someone else. Note: Rebekka’s all full on house portrait orders until after Christmas, which is why she’s doling out a gift card for one, which can be redeemed after the holidays.
- PRIZE: A gift certificate for a custom house portrait along with your choice of any art print (up to $17 in value) from Rebekka Seale
- TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “SEALE ME!” and tell us…
- BONUS QUESTION: … what are you most looking forward to giving this holiday season? Holiday cookies? The perfect sweater? Homemade crafts? Shearling dog boots (they actually make those)? Feel free to conceal the name of your recipient or talk in code, since we obviously don’t want you to give anything away too soon!
- GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, December 7th at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
- NUMBER OF WINNERS: One
- PRIZE SHIPS: Anywhere in the world!
- DISCOUNT: Get 10% off on all orders placed through December 31, 2011 with the code YHL123
