a Christmas giveaway, just for you

calendar mosaic

I know I keep banging on about the 2010 calendar that Mary, Janet and I have put together, but my own copy arrived a couple of days ago and I think it is just beautiful. (Said she, modestly).

Those four pictures up there are my contributions to the calendar. If you want to see the full calendar and check out the other, rather more magnificent, photographs, have a look here.

To celebrate and share the lurve around, I would like to give away a copy. It's my thanks to you for reading this wee blog over its four and a half years, for commenting, for sharing, for cracking me up, for support, or for quietly lurking in the background.

Leave a comment on this post by midsummer's eve (Sunday 20th December, EST) and I'll pick a random winner. I'll post anywhere in the world. It might not make it to you by Christmas, but I reckon it will get to you prior to the 1st of the new year.

(Don't forget, if you don't win, you can always buy your own copy. Buy three and you get free shipping!)

Don't include me in the giveaway, because I already have a copy.
Just wanted to say that it is a beautiful calendar and you've all done a magnificent job.
Merry Christmas.

Australian postal strikes notwithstanding.

It is a beautiful thing. Congratulations!

Happy solstice. See you in the new year.

Prism said...

Your blog was my inspiration to step into the blogging world! I found you when I looked up "dyeing yarn with food coloring (and small children)" and fell in love with being friends with such a kindred spirit clear across the world. Now I am getting ready to venture into the world of Etsy! I would love a calendar--and just FYI, we are very good at using food coloring to dye wool at our house now!

WV: crava--I crava visit with you, but if I can't I crava calendar!

MarmaladeRose said...

The calendar looks fab. Yes we are lucky to have a waterfall in the centre of our village. I'm sure with your photogaphic skills, you'd do it far more justice than I do. LOL!

froginthepond said...

I would love to have one because it's so much more beautiful than the school one. And if I had one, I could scribble all over the school calendar and keep this one beatiful.

kmkat said...

As a life-long resident of the northern hemisphere, it seems strange to think of December 20, our shortest day of the year, as the summer solstice. But so be it!

Julie said...

Nothing like a giveaway to bring the lurkers out, myself included :-) Your stunning photos are (mostly) the reason I keep coming back each day, so owning a copy of a calendar by you three talented photographers would be thrilling!

donyale said...

Ahhh - nothing like a give-away to bring all the lurkers (me included) out of the wood work....it's a lovely calender - hope sales go through the roof.

lisette said...

hi suse - could you put me in the mix please? the photos look stunning - well done :)

Mookah said...

Yes....I tend to be one of those quiet lurkers in the background. Visits often but says little. I have deliberated over and over about my favourite pic, and I have come up with 2. The tree in autumnal tones and the flowers with seed heads - are they poppies?

Who wouldn't love a copy of your beautiful calendar. Reflects the simplicity that life should be, you know when you have to keep reminding yourself to trake time to stop and smell the roses?

Liz said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your calendars and please include me in the draw.

michelle said...

oh it IS beautiful. congrats. what a stunning job!

Another Outspoken Female said...

Have a happy Solstice and may all your wishes come true in the New Year.

Vicki said...

Nothing like a giveaway to prompt someone to make their first comment after reading your blog for 18 months! The calendar is beautiful, I'd love to own a copy

Hyena In Petticoats said...

Oh my god - yes please - the calendar looks amazing.....

Thanks for the past year of brilliance Suse, it's been a treasure to pop in here and see what you're up to...

Have a gorgeous festival season!

Judith said...

Ha, I thought I spotted your style in those photos when I checked out the calendar. It is beautiful! I'd love to win it.

I'm living halfway around the world, though, so it might take a bit longer even than the new year to get here, but – I would wait :)

Merry Christmas to you all!

Judith

sewjourn said...

OOOOH, maybe I'm too late but I just read this.......doesn't really matter as I am going to buy one anyway!
