At Long Last! A Giveaway!

I know you've been wondering to yourselves, "When is that cheap wench ShellHawk going to do a giveaway?"

First off, I'm not cheap. I'm reasonably priced.

Second, I didn't have anything to give away. Now I do, so I'm going to foist-I mean, gift-one of these two guys to you. These are among the first completed pottery works I've done, so if I become an insanely famous artist (just insane now, no fame yet), these might actually bring you the price of a Vente Latte.

Here's how you enter:

1) If you're not already a follower of my blog, become one. It's the "Join This Site" button on the right side of the page.
2) Leave me a comment on this post. If you're not on blogger, leave the comment as "Anonymous." Just make sure I can identify you later.
3) Follow me on Twitter by clicking the Twitter badge above and to the right, then click the "follow" button. Just let me know you are following because of this giveaway, so I can separate you from the Twitter spammers!
4) Those of you who ramble on-I mean, blog-like I do, please make a mention of my giveaway on your blog. (And thank you for spreading the word!) Come back here and leave me a second comment, and you'll get your name in the witch's hat a second time.

Of course, feel free to post pictures of these 3 1/2 inch tall jackos in your post about this contest.

Just to add a bit of mystic atmosphere, the drawing will take place on the day of the New Moon, August 20. The winner will tell me which of these two guys will be grinning his flaming grin in their window this Halloween. Good luck!

In case you were wondering, no, cash bribes will not be accepted! But I appreciate the thought!


  1. Oh mememememememe! Yep I'm greedy like that :) Love these guys. If I had a kiln...oh the pottery I would make!
