Hello Winners!

drumroll please via besotteblog

Thank you everyone that participated in our Brush Lettering week!  I know that I was thoroughly inspired by the interviews and learned some new tricks I can’t wait to try out!

So without further ado…

Jenny Highsmith Hand Letter Like a Pro E-course Winner@HelloOctober

Laura Worthington 3 part Brush Lettering Course Winner-Chantelle Hoffman-So many amazing and contemporary lyrics to choose from, but my all time favorite is an oldie that brings back pictures of singing from the top of Austrian Alps: “Oh Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder consider all the works thy hand has made, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, thy power throughout the universe has made, then sings my soul, my savior God to thee, how great thou art, how great thou art!”

Kal Barteski Custom 8 x 10’s Winners (3)-

Courtney Glasson-I am quite enamored with Kal ‘s lettering style and join her in wanting to save the Polar Bears that are on their way to becoming extinct because they are losing their summer ice shelf . I would like to have her write: love is all you need

Sarah-This was a beautiful interview! I would love the word “fearless” in her bold script!

Jennifer-This was such an inspiring interview! I loved Kal’s advice to artist’s ” Don’t over think it. Be yourself. YOU ARE YOU AND THAT IS YOUR POWER. Be your best you…” I would love her to letter a part of this quote, maybe “Be your best you.” It’s a message I am always trying to give to my kids!

Kal Barteski Life Scripted Class with SuppliesRachel-What a great interview! I am so sad I missed out on Kal’s online course – it was on my list to sign up for but I waited too long :( It’s awesome to learn about her love of wildlife. I’ve had some words bouncing around in my head that I’d like to letter and I think they’d look great in Kal’s script: “May your adventures be wild and your summers endless.”

And the winner is…..

Winner of the grand giveaway via besotted blog

Hooray!  We have a winner of the Grand Giveaway! We choose all our winners via the Random Number Generator and Miss Susan H. (Fleurishing) is the winner! (please note the graphic corresponds to the winning answer).  Susan has one week from today to claim her prize so please, please, please email us! I am going to go out in an exasperated note here, if Susan doesn’t claim in one week, we will send the prizes back to the designer and we will officially stop doing Bestowals, because that would be just masochistic behavior to continue, dontcha think? This is our third attempt at getting winners for these gorgeous goods.  Thank you everyone that participated this round, we LOVED reading your answers, it is always great to get to know you a little better.

Who would I take on a road trip either living or dead and where would we go? Such a hard question! I’m thinking maybe Sir Paul McCartney, he’s my favorite Beatle and he once was quoted as saying every time he has something to say he turns it into a song, I think it would be fun to hear all the songs he would come up with. He probably has a million incredible stories to tell and I would welcome listening to them. Where would we go? Initially I thought I’d go to the Galapagos Islands, just because it’s on my bucket list but doesn’t sound fun with Sir Paul, who’s fair complexion would not lend itself to the equatorial sun, so I am thinking maybe a jaunt through the English or Irish countryside would need to suffice.

Thanks again and Congrats Susan!

Alternate winners for Winner Wonderland

Well, well here we are yet again with a whole bunch of unclaimed prizes. I am always befuddled by prizes that have gone unclaimed, any ideas for how to make it easier for people to know that they won? We have tried several ways, announcing winners in a post, then again mentioning said winners via social media Instagram + Twitter, emailing winners, etc. but sometimes we just come up empty. Rats!  Lucky for these folks, we are choosing a new set of winners!  Whatever prizes don’t get claimed from this list we will be giving away to one lucky individual, so stay tuned for that.
