The Sketchbook Challenge Book!

I can't even tell you all how excited I am to finally be able to announce the launch of Sue Bleiweiss' newest book, The Sketchbook Challenge Book. And I'm even in it, twice!!

I also have the joy of hosting not one but two giveaways to help launch this awesome book!

From The Thread Studio: a package of Flaked Gilding Leaf; and from Blue Twig Studio:  A pad of Borden & Riley BristolPlate. (Please note, since I keep being asked about it: my giveaways do NOT include a copy of the book!)

So how can you win? Just comment on this blog post! In three days, on July 12th, I will choose two names randomly from the comments and then I'll send the lucky winners on to Sue, who will ship out your fun prizes.
