Mini Button Giveaway

Scott and I had always planned on doing some sort of giveaway once we got settled. He still needs some time to finish out his shop and I am reopening my own on the 1st. In the mean time we thought we would toss out a little mini contest for starters and giveaway a set of our new 1 inch buttons. 



Rules - we haz em. 
  • This is going to be a quickie and will end April 1st, no fools. 2012 at noon 
  • This first run is for inside the US only
  • You must leave one comment per person here on this blog post. One entry only per person.
  • We would love it if you left us a comment stating how you found us. 
  • In your comment you MUST leave us a way of contacting you, should you win. 

All comments will receive a number in the order in which they are left, 1, 2, 3, etc. Then I will run the number of comments into random.org to let it pick the winning number. We will then post a screen capture of the number random has chosen to the blog so everyone will openly know who won. Any spam or duplicate comments will be removed prior to the final count number to be run into the number generator. 

We will e-mail the winner privately and ship said pack of 5 buttons to them at our cost via first class us postal mail. Please allow 7-10 days for delivery as that is what the post office states but 9 times out of 10 it gets there faster. You do not have to contact us to let us know they have arrived but it would be nice.

The fence does not a good tripod make.

With all the moving I feel very bad I have had very little time to blog. Last night I tried to go out and take a few time lapse shots while I had a moment. None of them thrilled me except the one of my camera falling off the fence. :/

Click pics to enlarge if you so desire. Taken with my Kodak Easy Share C340 set to long term exposure of 4 seconds on Albuquerque New Mexico's west side.

Power Outage today, Heavy wind, Blowing dirt

So the power went out for most of the people in my area today for damn near 4 hours. In this time we were in the middle of a horrible wind storm. I went outside and shot just a minute of what today was like til the sun started to set.

We were shafted a real sunset for this rather ominous picture of the last of the sunlight fading as the winds finally died down. 





First Coat is done

Time for a beer!

Stripped!

Got this done last night. Hoped to finish it up today, but high winds have knocked out the power. Almost two hours and I'm jonzing to sand and seal these floors.

View from our front porch

3-17-12

Part deux



On to step two of the move, fixing a few things upstairs for the new tenant.  New Security Door!!!

Got time to refinish the floors.  They just need a little sanding, then a fresh coat of shiny goodness.  One day into the floor project, at least another day before I get to seal up the living room and bedroom.

Pabst approves

Front porch will be getting used a lot!

Wenchkin's New Studio

It may not be much to look at unless you know what you are looking at but it is all mine. My first real studio space that is not half of my living room or bedroom. A space just for art. The press got moved over yesterday and I spent the day setting it up and getting it going. Printed a few cards for fun just to make sure I was happy with my setup and nothing needed to be moved. I still have some assorted craft bits in boxes that need to be sorted and assigned homes but that can wait. For now I sit for a minute and then print me some new address labels then go about finishing up the trim here in the new house.
Happy Day

a few randoms from the new flat

The press still needs to be moved over and will go on the large piece of cardboard on the floor. Still much to be done but we really needed to unpack and start living again so that we could continue and do the little things like the doors and trim in clean clothing and eat off dishes.
