Doodling and packing and things...

Tuesday Greetings!  I took a break from getting ready for my trip to New York to do some doodling.  Now I'm off to finish my laundry, run some errands, and pack up my postcards and portfolio.  If you're attending the conference, please keep a look out for my name tag.  I'd love to say hello!

Also, I'm very smitten with the work of Tor Freeman.  I think you'll like it too!

And the winner is....

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the giveaway!  I put all the entries in a hat and the first name I pulled out was... JOSHUA NASH!  Hooray!  And because there were far more entries than I anticipated, I decided to pull out a second name.  And it was... Z-KIDS!  Hip hip hooray!

So Joshua will receive a package with the items mentioned in my original giveaway post.  And the Z-kids will receive a similar package (but with some different prints).

Thank you again for entering! Happy Monday!

A Thank You Giveaway!

Usually I'm not big on New Year's resolutions, but this year I have several.  I've made the usual ones like eat more veggies, floss more often, and keep my studio better organized.  And I've also made several that have to do with hopes and dreams and goals and things like that.

One of my resolutions is to do a better job of showing you how much I appreciate that you take the time to visit my blog.  It always makes me a little nervous to put up a new blog post.  I'm sort of a quiet, private sort of gal, and sometimes posting a little snippet of my life makes me feel just a tiny bit vulnerable.  So, when you take the time to peruse my blog and even leave a comment, I really really really appreciate it.

And so, to better show my appreciation I'm going to do two things...

The first is that I'm going to try to be better about responding to your comments.  I'll respond to your questions and remarks in the same comment thread where you left them, so please check back.

And the second is that I'm hosting a GIVEAWAY!!  Hooray!  One winner will receive everything pictured above...

2  8x10" prints
3  5x7" prints
6  note cards (3 of which are valentines)
1  something secret (not pictured)

TO ENTER:  Please leave a comment under this post (Maybe you'd like to mention one of your New Year's resolutions?).  Or you can enter by sending me a tweet, @BrookeBHughes, with a link to this post...


and the hashtag, #NameInTheHat.  If you leave a comment AND send me a tweet, you'll be entered twice!  Huzzah!!

The giveaway will be open until the end of the day (midnight, Mountain Standard Time) next Wednesday (the 16th).  

Thank you again for visiting my blog and good luck!! :)  

*Entry is now closed and I'll announce the winner soon*

Hello to a New Year!

Hello, Friends!  I hope that 2013 is off to a good start for you!

So far this year has been full of lots of drawing and painting and getting ready for the SCBWI conference in New York, which I'm really looking forward to. 

I'm planning a giveaway post for Wednesday so please check back if you'd like to throw your name in the hat.

Also, if you're looking for some blogs to visit, my critique group friends have been doing some lovely work...  Lisa Anchin, Jessixa Bagley, Jill Bergman, and Tina Kugler

Happy New Year!!
