And the recipients of the giveaways are ....

As promised in my 600th post the giveaway is to be drawn today.

But first some exciting news  - the books for the Book Wall began to migrate to the wall and I am about half to two thirds done. The image below came about from drilling a hole close to the edge of a very large hard covered book with a 13mm drill bit - I just loved the crinkles. But more on that later in the week.

As is my custom the giveaway recipients are drawn by placing all the names in our Tibetan singing bowl and getting Fiona to draw the names out.

The first name was drawn for the Daily Words set below.

And the name drawn out was Robyn of ArtPropelled fame.

The second draw was for the Peace Leaf below.

And the name drawn out was Carol Lee Beckx

Thanks all who shared how and where they find peace and were willing to participate in the giveaway.

I leave you with a photo of the rusted plate steel fragment used to bolt the timbers on top of the books in place.

  1. I didn't think it possible to win again.... but I have!!! My tummy did a flip when i saw my name. I've loved your bowls of words since the first day you blogged about them. Thank you so much Barry!! Fiona must be my good luck angel.... thanks Fiona!

  2. ~b...the book wall looks beautifully lined with all those white pages...ruffled and crinkled...will be interesting to see it all finished...congrats to the two who were chosen...wishing you a wonderful day well and much love light and blessings~

  3. Congratulations ladies! Looking forward to more on your book wall, Barry. Intriguing.

  4. LOVE the book crinkles, too... very like sedementery layers. Congratulations on the winners... I was tempted to enter, but since I already won a lovely leaf a while back, I didn't. I love Daily Words and happy that it is going to Robyn.

  5. Congrats to the fortunate winners. Love those wonky books Barry.

  6. I have just seen this post now - I am so thrilled to be the lucky winner of the Peace Leaf - it will be treasured. Thank you.

  7. I see that during my hiatus I missed your wonderful giveaway... I love the daily words.. all so inspirational and hopeful. Your book wall sounds fascinating. Thank you for your inspiring comment you left on my post about my artist BLOCK... much needed and appreciated.

  8. Yes, excellent book photo pierced! Congratulations to the winners of the draw!

  9. How exciting for the winners... congrats Robyn and Carol! ;)

  10. R, B, AA, VA, JM, CLB, D, K & L - thanks for you well wishes for the recipients of the giveaway; and interest in the wall. I will post on the wall tomorrow. R & CLB - the Daily Words and Leaf will be posted later this week. R - I had a little chuckle over Fiona being your luck angel. CLB - the good thing about the leaves is that they are pretty unobtrusive and easy to treasure. D & R - Daily Words remain popular - a visiting artist bought a set today to give as a gift - I always like that - knowing that they can be an ongoing giving type gift. All - go well. B

  11. Hi L - sorry to have missed you in the comments above - your positive vibes for R & C would be appreciated. Hope all goes well for you as you begin to get more into spring. B
