Feels Like Home | Giveaway for the Artist

by | Sep 24, 2021 | art supplies | 362 comments

I have another giveaway for you in celebration of my new book, Feels Like Home!  It’ll be coming out in just over two weeks!!  I’m am so excited that we’re nearing the launch date as this book has been in the works for almost three years.  I finished writing it almost a year ago, so I have been waiting for a long time!

If you haven’t preordered the book, yet, you can preorder it from any one of these retailers…

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Worthy Publishing | Books-a-Million | Indie Bound

And claim your preorder bonuses HERE and find instructions on claiming your preorder bonuses HERE if you need some help.  The preorder bonuses include an original art download, a bonus chapter: Feels Like Home the Renter’s Guide, and five video workshops and enhanced tutorials from the book.

Today, I am having a bonus giveaway because my friend, Julia of Ponder & Purchase, wanted to join in on the celebratory giveaways and she sent me some amazing goodies for one lucky winner.  In addition to the vintage and antique art supplies from Ponder & Purchase, I’ll be adding in a $100 gift card to BLICK (or the art supply shop of your choosing), a perfect package for any artist or inspiring artist.

While the book Feels Like Home focuses on interiors, DIY, and home decor, there is an entire chapter on Creative and Work Spaces.  I think it’s so important to have a space to work that’s conducive to productivity and creativity and to have tools that get you excited about your work and creative interests. In addition, I am a believer that anyone can be an artist.  Sometimes you just need some inspiring tools and a little encouragement to get started.  Maybe this fun prize will be that encouragement.

…and an antique drafting box!  This is definitely my favorite piece.

The components in this box are almost identical to my antique draughtsman’s box.

It has beautiful brass tools, a brass protractor, a bone-handled ruling pen, this sweet teen-tiny pencil.

It also comes with a few different nibs for a dip pen…

…and a holder for charcoal.  I bought one of these from Julia because they are so cool (and keep your fingers tidy!)

It’s such a fun collection, isn’t it?  As I said earlier, I’ll also add in a $100 gift card to Blick or your favorite art supply shop.  Since all of this is pretty compact, the giveaway will be open to my international readers.

To enter, just make sure you are subscribed to my blog (you can do so below if you’re not already) and leave a comment on this post letting me know which piece you’re most excited about winning (for yourself or to give to an artist/aspiring artist you know.)  The giveaway is open to readers worldwide who are over 18 years old.  It will close Wednesday, September 29, 2021, at midnight PST.

 

  Good luck!

    That antique drafting box caught my eye right away! Not only would I love to use those tools, I’d definitely style that box in a vignette in my home!

      The whole collection is dreamy. The watercolor tin and paint palette are both my favorites. I love to think of the art that was created with them. You’re quote at the beginning of today’s blog post really inspires me to start painting. I’m hoarding supplies to get myself to start – but am hesitant to do so because I’m a beginner and afraid I won’t be good at it. I need to get over it and just do it.

    The Drafting box!!! I’ve been teaching my son the history of Architecture by having him draw buildings out of a book we are reading. I just taught him how to use a ruler and would love to use this set with him!

    All the prizes are amazing but I really hope I win for that antique draughtsman’s box. I would love to make up stories about its original owner every time I select a nib or a tool out of it!
