Countdown to Christmas

Today begins my five day Countdown to Christmas, where you'll have an opportunity to win one of my Zentangle books. If you aren't aware of the benefits of tangling, I'll briefly explain what this wonderful art form can do for you.

Tangling is simple and similar to doodling, but it's more intense and directed. This art form has no mistakes, only opportunities, which allows you to turn an "OOPS" moment into a wonderful opportunity that only you will know about. Zentangle helps you relax, renew your spirit and builds confidence. Young, old and all ages in between can benefit from tangling. You need no experience to tangle, just let your hand guide you and your brain relax.

Today, I'm offering one book for Day 1. Share your memory of your best Christmas EVER in the comment section and I'll notify the winner tomorrow when I post the 2nd day of my countdown.

Whether you celebrate Christmas or another religious holiday at this time of year, feel free to enter to win a gift during my 5 day countdown.

It's Free!!!! A New Give-Away Contest!

Every week, from now through the first week of January, I'll be giving a freebie gift away to the first 10 people who leave a comment on this blog. It's my way to show how much I appreciate readers and to share my goodies with everyone.

To win a pair of tangled earrings, not exactly like the ones below, but tangled none-the-less, simply enter a comment below and possibly visit and "like" the book.

Each pair of earrings is hand drawn and finished by me. I'll choose a pair from my stash and send them along to you once the contest has ended on Tuesday, December 18th. I will announce the winners on Facebook and here on this blog, so stay tuned.

What does the word "Free" really say?

     Whenever I see the word free in an advertisement, or attached to a bargain of some kind, I wonder how free the item really is... The cost of the free object has been built into the so-called sale price of the other object that is being offered at an "all-time" low price. We all know this, yet we're enticed by the word FREE and generally make the deal.
   I have a free deal to offer the first 10 people who leave a comment on this blog. In an effort to promote my book "TANGLED TO DEATH, I'm offering a free tangled t-shirt. No purchase is necessary, just the size and an address for shipping once I have notified the winners. How's that for FREE? The shirts are all different, so there isn't a specific choice to be had, but here is a photo that will give you an idea of what you might receive for FREE. Each t-shirt is hand illustrated and they're all washable.
     If you feel the need to help me promote my new book, you'll find it at this url, where a "like" will help in my efforts to generate ratings and to introduce readers to my characters.
