Christmas Giveaway!


I posted last week about the figurines and ornaments Bob carves.  He sold lots of them at the craft fair and is now selling them online as well.
I love giveaways and Bob agreed to donate one of the ornaments he made to the cause!  So, if you are interested in winning this hand carved Santa ornament for your tree, just leave me a comment.  Make sure you tell me a way to reach you if you are chosen.  I'll leave this open until Sunday night at 9, when I'll use the random number integrater to choose a winner.

I showed Ryan the picture you posted the other day of his collection of carved santa's and Ryan just could not believe he carved them. He wondered how long it takes him to carve one, even before the painting. (And he paints them himself?)

I want to enter! They are wonderful.

Mari, Mari....you know I went to bed thinking of this last night. I was so excited to join in on the drawing for the giveaway.

My goodness, my goodness. I MUST show Bud this as he loved to carve with wood also. This is one outstanding job! Even if my number isn't drawn to 'win' this...it was a gift to see one so close up. What a treasure!!!!

And wait....by the looks of it, I'm gonna be #13?!!! Oh dear. Is that a lucky number? Now I'm bummed. LOLOL

No matter, when you talke to your Bob...tell him thank you from the bottom of my heart that he is so generous. And what talent.

Hootin' Anni said...

PS....I just got Bud in here to view the Santa...from one wood carver to the other...he says "WOW"!!!!

Mari said...

Aspie Mom - It's hard to say how long it takes to carve because he does a little at a time. Yes - he does paint them himself.

His work is incredible! It would truly be an honor to display his work on my tree!

I was in awe the other day when you showed off some of his work. "Wow" just doesn't seem to cover it. :)

Perri said...

I'm eagerly awaiting the ones I ordered, so if I should win this one, I promise to give it to Andi. who wanted one, but needs to save her $$$ for a new furnace.

Hey my number is 35 - my age (in a dream world I live in) -- should be lucky!

Lois Lane II said...

WWWOOOOWW. Gorgeous!!! I would like to win, lol!!!

~Ginger said...

I'm entering for Sarah again since she was #1. I'm holding out to someday get one of Bob's snowmen and the Santa would be perfect for Sarah. If you draw my name please surprise Sarah with the gift. :D

2Thinks said...

Oh bummer, I was away too long! I missed the deadline to enter to win, but the Santa is awesome! Bob does a fantastic job with the carving. I was too busy with family events surrounding the homecoming/visit of our son from California, so I missed the craft fair, too. *sigh*

But I'll have to go online and see if I can find Bob's santas there. Do you have a link?

Here comes the storm!

Kim said...

Who wouldn't LOVE to win one of Bob's ornaments?! :-) You don't mention if international readers can enter. If I won, I'd have you send it to my son and his wife anyway (they live in Indiana) rather than to me in Argentina. Just sayin' :-)

Mari,
What a nice giveaway! I've been away from blogging for a few days, but I'm glad I got a chance to enter!
It looks like GR had a big snowstorm! We got a little snow, but the roads were slick.
