...and the winner is...."Bear Chick"

There were comments from 17 people, and I numbered the entries from 1 - 17 based on the order of comments.

I then went to and generated a random number between 1 and 17, and the winner is....

Number 3!  "Bear Chick"

Congratulations! Please go to my Etsy shop at, go to the pendants section, and choose a pendant. Don't "order it" online...just tell me which one you want and I'll make it happen.

Then send me your information and it will go into the mail by Friday.

Thanks to all who commented, this was fun! I'll do it again sometime.

One a Day - October 1st, 2011: Number 500

To celebrate my 500th collage, leave a comment on this post and you'll be entered into a drawing for a pendant of your choice from my Etsy shop (look to the right side of the screen).  See all of the pendants here.

Well this pretty much ended up a mess. I'm OK with that. The only guideline I gave myself for this collage was that it be all authentic material. No collage sheets, no scrapbook paper, no scanned and printed images. All of these elements are from real old things.

There's the endpaper from an 1900 edition of Tennyson's poems, an old piece of wallpaper, part of a vintage button card, and old magazine picture of an owl, something snipped from an old sheet music cover, a piece of an old pocket notebook in which someone noted the weather and the day's activities, and part of a food stamp from the late 80s.

One a Day-September 30th, 2011: Number 499

Blog giveaway at the 500th collage to be posted tomorrow (Saturday, October 1st). Post a comment to the blog post and you'll be entered into a drawing for a pendant of your choice from my Etsy shop (link to on the right).

This collage was fun. I have these old magazines that I've finally started to cut up. The following collage came from three different McCalls magazines from 1956, 1960 and 1961.

I had this idea to use pictures of pictures in the magazine, in the "decorating" articles. The background is an abstract, and the others are self-explanatory. I like how the color palette was similar in each piece.

I did find it poetic that there is a picture of pictures in the magazine pictures. There's a name for that, I just can't recall what it is.  The visual art version of a "play within a play".
