100th post giveaway

Hello friends!  I have reached my 100th post!  To honor all the friendships I have made since beginning this blog, I would like to have a giveaway.  I pondered on what I could give that would be unique and heartfelt and have decided to give away a piece of my art.  Whoever wins can choose which piece they most desire.  All of the ones pictured here are up for grabs.
This is Dooleybobber #6 and measures 6"x 6.5"  If you want to give it a new name, feel free to do so.  The orange batik background is not part of the piece.  This one is a particular favorite of mine.
Next is Broken Hearts.  It measures 18"x18"
Here we have Wonky Heart, which really is a dooleybobber but I hadn't started naming them that yet.  It measures a rather wonky 15"x 12".

This is another Dooleybobber, I think it was the first one I made so call it dooleybobber #1.  Measures about 7"x 7". 


Dooleybobber #2.  Measures 9.5"x 9".
Key to Life measures about 10"x 14".

Is this silly, to have all these choices in a giveaway?  I guess it doesn't matter.  It is my giveaway and I will giveaway however I want to!

Here are the rules:  write a comment on this post and tell me which piece you would choose.  You must be a follower but you don't need to post about it on your blog or anything.  I'm not looking to get new followers, just to reward the ones I already have.  I have met the most interesting, kind, talented, thoughtful and generous people in blogland.  Thank you all for taking the time to visit and comment.  I have been very pleasantly surprised to discover that there are people out there who actually get a little kick out of my photos and stumbling words.  I will choose a winner in the morning on Sept. 12 and post about it that day.  Thanks for spending time with me, I know how valuable your time is and I appreciate it.  I have had a few new followers sign up recently, I welcome you, thanks for wanting to follow my artistic journey.

Be well.

I have to decide now? You have four with hearts in them. I love the hearts. But I also love keys. I also love rainbows and the river of rainbows is very good! I think you call it dooley bobber #1, LOL!!!
Lovely Jan and congratulations dear one!!
A milestone in your life!!
Broken hearts has the most hearts so I pick that one, but I would be totally happy with anything you make.

I think a choice is a good thing. I would love to be the lucky ducky owner of the Key to Life. All of your pieces are wonderful but that one just speaks to me. Congratulations on 100 posts, it is a milestone of which to be proud. The Olde Bagg

Fabulous idea! It's a toss up between DB No 6 & Wonky Heart, tough decision but I think Wonkey Heart just makes it.

It's been great following you & having you as a follower, I love this blogging thing!

Must go & look at what number post I'm on! Hope to write one tomorrow (Tues)

Linda said...

This is a great idea Jan...I may copy you sometime.
I love all these pieces, but if I had to choose it would be 'Broken Hearts'. Its just so vibrant!!
Hope I'm lucky....... :-)

Bunny said...

Oh my goodness I love them all I would be honoured to win anyone of them. Let me check them out again hmm I guess if I have to choose it would be doobygobber #1. Love it.

Nancy said...

What a generous thing to do! My pick would be Dooleybobber #1. But I love them all.

Marlene said...

Jan, congratulations on 100 posts - that is an accomplishment. It has been fun getting to know you and someday we will meet in person. I would be happy and honored to win and receive any of your lovely art. If forced to choose I would have to choose Doolybobber #2, I love the face in it.

hi jan! i think all your work is wonderful, and i had to go through a few times trying to pick just one. if i had my choice, i would most like key to life. there is something about it that just really intrigues me. i have always been drawn to heritage things, so maybe that's it. i would be honored to have any one of your pieces, though. i think you are so very talented!

Carol said...

Congrats on 100 posts. I always enjoy a visit to your blog. I like all your work, so I can't choose!!

hi jan...I'd have to choose DB #6 since it's the smallest, has my fav heart in it and also has the paper clay piece that reminds me so much of clay pieces a friend of mine makes (and I love them too)...
and congratulations on your 100th post...woo hoo!

Hi Jan ! Thanks for your comment on my June bjp. When I checked your blog (which I do from time to time, believe it or not), I noticed your anniversary and generous giveaway, so signed up as a follower. If I win, I love Dolleybobber #6. Well, that or the Broken Hearts (it's a hard choice), because we've all had that at one time. I do love the colours and the freeform nature of your pieces. I wonder why?

Lynn said...

Hi Jan,
Thank you for the lovely comments on my blog :)

Congratulations on 100 posts, it seems to take ages to get there doesn't it. I just love your textile/fiber art, it is something I dabble in when I can.

Of all the times I get to catch up on blog visits it is a giveaway post and I would be over the moon to win any of your amazing pieces of art, but if I did win and had to choose it would be Doolybobber #1, it just speaks to me of "joyfulness" for some reason:)

Jan,
CONGRATULATIONS on your 100th Post!! I remember those first posts of yours ~ they have been great right from the very beginning. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and seeing your fabulous art pieces.
Wow! How generous is this giveaway - letting us choose. It is difficult because every one of them is wonderful. I would be thrilled with any one. If I must choose, I would go with WONKY HEART because I love the colors and you've put a spiral on this one and that is my favorite symbol!
♥ audrey

Jan said...

Thanks everyone for stopping by and signing up for my give away. I'm flattered that you would like to have a piece of my art. Good luck! Who ever wins can pick what they want, even if they change their mind from what they pick in their comments. But I'm keeping track of which pieces seem to be the most desired.
Jan

Hi Jan! I like the piece at the top. Well, I like them all, but that is my fave. I really love the work you've been doing lately. It must be very meditative too.
