$300 Lipstick Ranch Shopping Spree


Whoa...did I say that? Yes, I guess I did. All right then, I've made the commitment...so let's get on with it.

We have been having such a blast at Collage Camp...haven't we gang? If you have any doubts, just check out the Camp Photos section! You guys are either ridiculously talented or I'm a REALLY good teacher! But sitting around the old Campfire recently, we decided we need more Campers to come play in the fire with us and hike around the collage trails. Sooo....I'm offering a reward-I mean I am opening up a mega-giveaway.

Mention Collage Camp on your blog-you don't have to write an essay-just mention what a good time you're having-or if you're not attending Camp, just mention that it looks like a good time and link to The Camp. You can even grab the little icon off the Camp front page. If you don't have a blog, post it on your Facebook Page, or on any other art group you belong to. Even a Twitter or two will work. Heck, send postcards-you know..."Having a wonderful time...wish you were here." Tell your readers they can get in on the drawing too by doing the same thing you are doing. This is an equal opportunity run-amok shopping spree. But, please be sure they understand that this means they have to link to Camp too. They can't simply comment below this blog and have it count. Okey-dokey?

Drop a comment at this particular blog, stating that you have bandied about the Camp logo shamelessly and your name will get in the drawing for a $300 Lipstick Ranch get-whatever-the heck-you-want shopping spree. None of my fabric art is off limits. The drawing will be held in 3 weeks-Monday, June 15th.

Be there or be square.

Judy Bidwell said...

I am so THERE! All I have blogged about for days is this great collage camp! I am so jazzed about it and am having a ball creating collages. So far I have done 7 collages and a tag. This camp is so "right up my alley". My regular blog readers have been telling me that each collage is better than the one before. Yikes!

You have done a fabulous job, KC, and I thank you for making the videos and offering the collage camp. I have been an admirer of your work for years.

Joanne Burkett said...

Oh, wow! I am so all over that, too! Although I am currently not able to start my workshop classes due to chemo yuck I am going through, I hope to be on it very soon!!! Don't count me out!

Hi KC,
I am having way too much fun with your workshop. I have four pieces I'm working on, and keep thinking of new ones I want to start. I actually bought two trash bags full of linens from the thrift store so I'd have more fabric to choose from. Thank you so much for sharing your art and creative ideas in this workshop. I can't stop talking about it on my blog. Even my granddaughter is working on a piece. I'm just gettin the hang of blogging - but you'll see what I've done so far at http://www.bluebayou.net/

Lisa said...

Ok I've blogged shamelessly about the workshop...would love to win such an amazing giveaway.. wow!! Either way I am having a blast with the workshop and really enjoying all the fun aspects! Your classes are the best and I am so glad I am able to participate!

K.C. I have been blogging away about Collage Camp. I've also been telling customers in our store (Mystic Paper) about it. I think we have at least 8 locals already signed up and we are planning a get together.

This has been a wonderful camp out. I talked with Tweety Jill today and we both decided that it has been one of the most inspirational classes we have taken. Thanks for doing this!

Charmingdesigns said...

We currently don't have a blog, butyou inspired us (we run an arts related non-profit) to start a collage camp for kids here in NYC. The kids are addicted and do not want to go home. :/ Needless to say, the parents love it, too. haha..

In August, the kids will be showing their collage pieces at our art show/block party/arts fest. We will use this 300.00 (if we win) to support more collage art classes for the kids and their parents. :D

I have not attended "Collage Camp" but I've heard nothing but awesome things about it. I can only imagine all the fun you're having.
I wish I could take more classes (or any at that rate), but at this time in my life, I just can't (other priorities). But your work is just amazing and I love your style.

Holy Moley, sister! What a wonderful giveaway! Yes, I admit I have shamelessly promoted and mentioned and held my own little "round up" on my blog since before we started! I also have had your button on top of my blog sidebar, and have your blog on my blog list with auto updates at all times. I am one of your biggest fans (although i certainly don't deserve to win this wonderful gift, I'd sure love to)!

Hugs,
Sheila

I will never be able to express how enriching this experience has been KC, I am inspired to do more pieces and make the most wonderful mess of my studio for each. This is a most generous giveaway, and I have shouted out on my blog about it. I hope your next class will double, at least, and others find such inspiration from you as I have. Happy Trails to You.
