Raffle-Ended April 3, 2010

Congratulations to Irish Rose.  She's the winner of my Lama Li journal!

I tend to be a person who grouses and grumbles a lot, but I know I'm blessed.  I like to remind myself of that on occasion by trying to do something that will make others happy, if even for a few moments.

With that in mind, I've decided to raffle off the journal that I've just completed, and I'm going to try and make it an opportunity for members and connoisseurs of the online art community to get to know new people.

So, the raffle prize:  A 40-page Lami Li Passport journal.  Size 3.5" x 7" (8.9 cm x 17.8 cm, if the online calculator I used is correct).  There are 25 zendoodles, which you can see in my Flickr set, here.

1. Give me a link to art--a Flickr site, website, whatever.
2. Explain what kind of art is at this site.  Any art is acceptable, but please add a warning if X-rated.
3.  Leave me contact info.  If you don't want to post it here, you can email me at Flickr or at rooibas@gmail.com.

 Stipulations: I intend to take all the links and sort them into different types and then post them as a page.  I know sorting will be hard because many of the sites will have mixed types. Do the best you can.  The site can be professional, but I'd like lots of everyday artists who just post on Flickr or blog.  I'm hoping we'll all find new friends with similar interests.

You can leave your link in a post here, at my Flickr site, or email me (rooibas@gmail.com).  International players welcome.  Invite your friends--the more the merrier!

Let the raffle begin!


  1. http://bentolman.deviantart.com/art/Rhinoceros-150349889 I use to be a member of Deviant Art where I uploaded my manipulations and restorations but since I have gotten into ATCs I gave up the site. But I browsed for what I thought was a really cool piece of art and this is my favorite of what I looked at today. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If by chance when you click on the link and you just get a small version of the artwork, click on the image again and it will open to a larger size version where you will see all the wonderful details!

    Great raffle Sandra :))

    However I'm a huge fan of your art so I had to include something to be a part of your raffle. Your book is amazing!!!

  11. Thanks for inviting me to this raffle! Mr X-Stitch (http://www.mrxstitch.com/) is a site I visit almost every day. It contents contemporary embroidery and needlecraft. It's a great site, but ones a week there's a NSFW-Saterday post! (Not Safe For Work, so be warned!) I like this site, because I didn't find it, Mr X-Stitch found my dragon and wrote about it!

  12. This is so Grand of You! I love personal art from Artist. That is why I collect ACEO's some are 9"x12" - about as large as I can go.
    Here is my FLIKR SITE: http://www.flickr.com/photos/3dmoca/
    It has a lot of my drawings and some zentangles too!
