3,000 Followers GIVEAWAY!

(Despite what the title seems to proclaim, no, I am not giving away three thousand followers. Sorry about that.)

AHEM. I am very excited to announce a pretty…. um, exciting giveaway in honor of reaching over 3,000 followers! AHH I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE IT! You guys are even more amazing than the giveaway. 😀 ♥ I expounded your wonderfulness at greater length in my last post, along with some blogging tips, so be sure to check it out if you haven’t yet. 😉

Anyway, let’s proceed. Are you ready to see what I’m giving away?


What You’ll Win

This is mostly an arts/crafts type of giveaway because I love that sort of thing and I know a lot of you guys do too. Plus, I post about arts and crafts sometimes on my blog, so I thought that would make sense. 🙂 Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll receive if you win:


  • one super fine-tip pen
  • a pack of six adorable little fox metal clips
  • three cute rolls of washi tape
  • a pack of six fun, wooden mechanical pencils
  • twenty blank ATCs
  • a miniature polymer clay snowy owl, made by me
  • a custom piece of art, to be drawn by me as well
  • a 20% off coupon for The Color Box Studio, my art Etsy shop
  • a paperback copy of the excellent book, Do Hard Things, by Alex and Brett Harris
  • and maybe a little surprise gift – who knows?

TEN DIFFERENT PRIZES FOR ONE WINNER. IS THAT NOT EXCITING? Goodness, I’m getting so excited and I’m not even entering (though I kinda wish I could). XD Okay, now that you saw an overview of each thing, let me tell you a little bit more about them.

giveaway 8 (1280x853)

This pen is AMAZING. I know because I have one just like it. It has an incredibly fine tip, perfect for intricate details. (I used this pen for my elephant drawing, a print of which you can buy here at my art Etsy shop.)

giveaway 5 (1280x853)

Are these not the CUTEST THINGS? I found them at Hobby Lobby and I love them! I believe they’re supposed to be paper clips, but I think they would also make great bookmarks. 🙂

giveaway 4 (1280x853)

What more can I say? It’s washi tape. You can never have too much washi tape, right? I love these colors and patterns together! ♥

giveaway 7 (1280x853)

I have never used these particular pencils before but I really wanted to steal a couple out of the package and give you guys the rest. (Don’t worry, I didn’t.) The package says these mechanical pencils actually have a wood case instead of plastic? Also each pencil comes with three leads, so they should last you a while. 🙂 I also like the cute designs.

giveaway 3 (1280x853)

(If you don’t know what an artist trading card is, go here. They’re so much fun!) It’s much more enjoyable to make ATCs when they’re already cut for you, in my experience anyway. Perhaps you could use a few to test out some new art supplies? 😉

giveaway 2 (1280x922)

Aww, those eyes! ♥ I really like this little guy, but it’s time for him to go to a new home. *Sniff* I made this tiny owl from polymer clay. He comes with a “stone” nest, also made out of polymer clay. See his wistful expression? He wants to come live with you.

giveaway 9

The picture is kind of misleading, but I had to take a photo of something. XD The giveaway prizes include a free custom 8X10″ portrait of your pet, drawn by me, in Prismacolor colored pencil unless you specify otherwise. If you don’t have a pet or you’d rather me draw something else, I can certainly do that (though I reserve the right to refuse anything I think inappropriate, etc.)!

And as a little bonus, you get a 20% coupon for The Color Box Studio! (You can also use it if you order a custom order.) It will be a code, like a promo code, that I’ll include either when I notify you of winning or else in the package.

giveaway 6 (1280x849)

And lastly but not leastly, we have this great book by Alex and Brett Harris called Do Hard Things. My brother and I got a copy of this for our birthdays and it was so good. It’s written to teenagers and is explicitly Christian, but the message is still relevant to everyone, whatever your age or religion. Basically the authors argue that our culture today has pitifully low expectations for teenagers and show how we can overcome the stereotype, so to speak, and use this time to “do hard things” that make a difference both in our lives and the lives of others. Not just randomly do hard things like try to mountain climb without a rope or something, but meaningful challenges that take us out of our comfort zone and into a whole new world. It was a super thought-provoking while still easy-to-read book and really impacted me, in a good way.

And that’s that! NOW. Are you ready to learn the rules for entering?

How To Enter

  • This giveaway is only open to people in the United States. I’m sooo sorry about that, guys, but otherwise the shipping cost gets pretty scary, you know?
  • You must be following my blog to enter. Ideally I’d like for this giveaway to be only for the followers I already have, but that would be too hard to monitor. I don’t want you guys to follow my blog solely so you can enter this giveaway, but I can’t think of a better way to do it and still have it only be for my followers, so… :/
  • As usual, if you’re under 18 years of age, get a parent’s permission before entering. But I’m sure you already knew that. 😉
  • To enter, comment on this post saying that you’d like to enter, and tell me which of these items you’d be most excited to win.

For Bonus Entries…

  • Take my survey for 2 bonus entries. NOTE: This is option is only for my current followers because it’s not going to work very well for you or for me if you fill out a survey for a blog you just found. 😉
  • Share on social media for 1 bonus entryChoose Pinterest, Facebook, whatever. NOTE: You can only get one bonus entry for this, even if you share several times or on different social media platforms. Of course I’ll be quite happy if you want to share it more than once, but you’ll still earn just one extra entry. Otherwise things could get WAY too complicated. XD
  • Share on your blog for 1 bonus entry. You can add a link to my giveaway to your post or reblog this post – your choice.

Giveaway Deadline

The giveaway starts today, October 16th, 2017, and ends October 31st, 2017, the end of this month. That gives you just over two weeks to enter. I’ll post the winner on November 1st!

I’ll notify you by email and comment if you win, but if you don’t respond within a week, I will have to pick someone else. 😦


OKAY, I think that’s it! Ahhhh yay, I’m finally done! That took forever to write. XD I hope you guys are as excited about the giveaway as I am! If you have any questions, just drop me a comment below.

Have a lovely day, and thanks for reading, dears. ♥

  4. My goodness Allison…. You’re so kind and generousto do this, really, you are! ♥️
    I’d like to enter and I’d be so happy to receive any of the gifts, but especially the fine point pen, because I think it would inspire me to draw more and get better at drawing. But I really love the fox clips…. seriously, they are soooooo cute! I can just imagine them hanging onto my orchestra music. The book looks really good….. and the little owl…. and the trading cards…. And I know they’ll be adorable too.😉 And the pencils, so creative! Yikes…. I could just post a comment that was all exclamation points!

Hmmm, I have wanted to read Do Hard Things for a long time, and I sent some of those pens to friends recently, so I’m most hoping for those! But, of course I love washi tape (you are 100% correct that you can never have too much), clips, coupon (eek!), the fine tip pen (Ooh, I’ve wanted one of those!) and the pet portrait!!! If I won, I would have you draw Beorn, that would be SO neat! 🙂 So I think I’m most excited to win everything! Mwahahaha!

  7. I would like to enter the contest. The item that caught my eye was the drawing of a pet. My cat passed away in February. I thought the drawing would be nice for my family to have to remember her. I would be happy to give the Etsy discount to a friend, just so you get more business. I believe in supporting artists.

    1. Yay! Aww, that’s so sad. 😦 I would love to draw your cat for you if you win the giveaway! (Actually I can still make a custom order if you want whether you win or not!) Aww, that’s so kind of you. Thanks. ♥


  8. Yay, this is so exciting! I definitely want to enter. I do have a parent’s permission, but I don’t exactly need to, if you know what I mean. 😉 I’m not sure which item I’d be most excited about winning. I just really like everything. But probably the cool mechanical pencils, the blank ATCs, and the custom art piece. Of those I don’t know if I can choose…Maybe the pencils?
    Anyway, this is such a generous giveaway, Allison! You’re so kind. 🙂 Oh, and one more thing–I took your survey for the extra points! 🙂

  12. I’d like to enter :)) This was such a great idea! A super fun way to celebrate 3,000 followers! The gift I’d be most exciting about receiving is the book. I’d love to get more into reading and that sounds like a book that would be perfect for me! I struggle with going outside of my comfort zone and I think, based on your description, that the book would help me with that! Also, congratulations!!

  14. I did just follow, but not just for the giveaway! I found your blog from a reposting and I love it!! I will be definitely looking forward to all of your new posts :). If I won I would be most excited about the artwork you’ve drawn!


  15. Wow! What a fun giveaway!! I would definitely love to enter! I have permission and am following you 🙂 🙂 . I’d be most excited to win… uhh… maybe the book 😀 … Or the pen is really cool… and the pencils… and the custom art… and the rest… XD XD
    This is a really fun giveaway!! And I like that you already suggested the custom art to be of the winner’s pet, because *if* I were to win then I’d probably have about zero ideas of what to have you make XD
    Thank you for the giveaway, and I’ll probably be back with some extra entries eventually. 🙂


    1. Yay, thank you so much, Gracie! HA HA well I’m glad you like everything. 😛
      And thanks! Yeah, I kind of thought leaving it wide open would be a bit difficult. 😉
      You’re welcome, dear! Sounds good! 🙂


  16. I’d like to enter:)) This is such a great idea! A creative way to celebrate 3,000 plus followers! The gift I’d be most excited about receiving would have to be the book!

  18. I would like to enter! 😀 My problem is that all these things are right up my alley being a crafty person. But maybe the fine-tip pen or the custom art? I shared this image on Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/Emmalinefigura/giveaway/ , took the survey and reshared the post on my blog. Congratulations on 3,000 followers! Oh, and that was terrible to have to pick ONE bunny. I have three favorites, Snickers, Basil, and Willow. 😆


  19. What an awesome giveaway! Early congratulations to whoever wins! (I live in Canada so I won’t be entering, but shipping is totally scary so I understand!)
