Trick or Treat, Blog Candy Style!

It is finally here; the day I draw a name from the hat for the printer's tray blog candy! And the name is....

But first I wanted to say thanks again to Donna of Meme's Art Place for donating  this fabulous blog candy. I have to say I personally have NEVER seen blog candy this wonderful, and I know the lucky recipient will be thrilled. Let's take one last look:

The lucky recipent, you ask?

The winner is. . . But before we get there, I just wanted to say how effective the blog candy has been at publicizing The Altered Alice, and thanks to ALL of YOU for spreading the word! The blog began on Oct. 4th with my welcome message, and the first artwork was posted later that day.  Word was spreading pretty well for a brand new blog, and we had 27 followers (25 Google; 2 Facebook) on Oct. 21, when Donna offered the blog candy. Since then we have TRIPLED with 77 followers (69 Google; 8 Facebook). THANK again to EVERYONE who helped!

Ok. I had to put all my waffle first because I knew I'd lose you after the winner. We had 29 participants and I used Random.org to select the winner.


Linky entry #24 corresponds to Creations by Tee! Congratulations! Please contact me within a week from this blog post (email link in the left sidebar).  If I don't hear from you within that time period, we will draw a new nameTee responded VERY quickly, so no second chance drawing will be held!

Of course I checked to be sure that Tee had followed the rules of the contest, so I can assure you that Tee spread the word. She made two blog posts, one about The Altered Alice and one about the Blog Candy and had the blog candy picture AND the blog badge in her sidebar! You all may enjoy visiting Creations by Tee. She makes handmade art pendants from Scrabble tiles which she sells in her Etsy shop and in the past some have featured Alice in Wonderland! She also makes lovely ATCs and other cool things that you can see on her blog.  Who knows, perhaps we will find a future featured artist here one day, and I never would have seen her blog if she hadn't entered the contest! Don't you love blogging?

Well, I sure hope all of you will remain followers and continue to display our blog badge now that the blog candy is over.  Remember you can submit your artwork for consideration, it doesn't matter when you made it. If you see cool Alice stuff on another blog, there is a place to add a link for that also, or you can email me to point out cool finds.

I'd also like to thank Sue Roddis of JABBERWOCKY for acting as unofficial talent scout. Many of the past and upcoming posts are from pieces that Sue emailed me about, made by artists I never would have found on my own. YOU can be a talent scout too! Remember that The Altered Alice is a community experience and continue participating with your comments, your artwork submissions, and sharing links to other Alice stuff.  I always contact the artist first for permission, so just send me the blog post links or submit them through the Linky Tool and I'll take it from there!

THANKS AGAIN TO ALL!  And leave me a comment, I sure love getting them!
