Win a Whimsy Wednesday!

Last night I made six simple hand-drawn bookmarks - one for me and five to share as whimsies over the coming wednesdays. This is my way of sharing a little surrender and peace as the hysteria of the holiday season descends on so many - during a natural season that contradicts such frenzy.

So ... to mark a peaceful page in your book of life simply pause now, take a deep and nourishing breath and leave a comment to this post. In doing so, you're entered in tomorrow's drawing to win one of these ...


Congratulations Mrs. B ~ You're this week's Whimsy Winner!!!

Oh, wow!! What an amazing way to use your peace sign! And sharing it with 5 people - passing the peace around! How wonderful is that?

This is one I really, really hope that I win! Beautiful.

Really great idea and I love the idea of everyone sharing a little peace! We do all need it now. I love your drawings, thanks for taking the time to share them with us. Jenn

OH NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! *sob*... but... peace to all... *sob* if only the 5 people who get it will make another doodle extending from the piece they have... then cut it to 5 and continue sharing peace :) from 1 to 5, 5 to 25, and so on... soon the world will be full of peace :) having that thought in mind... now i dun feel so bad :)

Jen said...

Oh, how LOVELY! I'd love to have one of those marking my place in my book.

Lucas said...

That's a beautiful PEACE sign.. I love the intricate design :) I think everyone needs peace in their life for sure. :) Thanks for sharing it with us :)

This is an awesome concept... unifying people in peace... beautiful :-)

Marsha said...

It's beautiful!

manamoon said...

I'm afraid I agree with luthien *sob*. I'm just so sad to see this beautiful piece separated. I have a friend who LOVES piece signs and she would've loved this print as gift.

Ryan said...

luthien's idea is great. It would be like that doodle game I played when I was a boy "squiggly lines" were someone draws a squiggle and you make it into a pic only this one would be part of your bookmark and peace inspired...huzaaah

Howling Caterpillars said...

Very very nice!
What a great idea too.

livewater said...

What a great idea. I could use a little peace (of mind).

Divaeva said...

Hillbilly Artist - H. Hinkle said...

What a great idea...when you send them out you will be sending out a bit of peace to them.

tarabu said...

oh, dear - I do hope you've got a really good scan to reproduce that print from. I hate that sometimes it hurts so much to share something so beautiful.

Rain said...

That is such an awesome idea, and really gorgeous doodling.

kairen said...

that is amazing...you are an incredible artist...and luthien didn't have a bad idea about spreading the peace around...hmmmm

SpiritMama said...

That is unique and beautiful! Spread the peace!

Kelley said...

What a beautiful and loving idea!! I hope I get to mark my pages with a lovely peice of your peace!!

CathyK said...

so....would the underlying truth be that we only find peace when we come together?.....
( I find my verification code to be "dramesse" which goes ironically well with your previous blog re protesting a particular day....
Dramesse. I've had days like that...)

Rose Works Jewelry said...

Those are awesome! I'd LOVE to win one of those!

nici said...

Walk in the Woods said...

Thanks to all of your for playing Win a Whimsy! I love your comments ...

And to those of you who expressed distress over my slicing of the drawing, rest assured that I'm already doodling another - with a composition that will better please me!

peace
