One Moment Please....... A Giveaway!!!!!

"Ah-hmm, pardon me Madam."
"Yes, Sebastian, what is it?"
"Well Madam, I noticed it was time."
"Time for what, Sebastian?"

"Your Blog Madam, it is time to make an announcement on your Blog."

"Whatever do you mean by announcement Sebastian?"

"I believe it is regards to this being your 100th post, Madam."
"Has it been that many? Oh dear I suppose I should celebrate by giving something away."

"Might I make some suggestions Madam?"
"Why yes Sebastian, what do you think would do for such an occasion?"

"Well perhaps Madam would consider offering one of these fine archival prints she has of her paintings?"

"Hmmm, Do you really think they would like that?"

"Well Madam could always let them choose from the prints she has listed on her Artfire site. Then they could pick the one that suits them, like this lovely one here."
"Oh I think that's a splendid idea Sebastian. Any other thoughts?"

"If Madam is feeling particularly 'Saucy' she might be inclined to offer to make one of her fine little stuffed mice, like this example here."
"Yes I could make it in a color they prefer, on a little cushion too, like the one I made for Kana's May basket exchange."

"Yes and all they would need to do is leave a comment on this post to enter. If they would like to double their chance they could "follow" your blog, and to enter their name three times perhaps they post about your giveaway on their blog?"
"Don't you think that's asking a lot Sebastian?"
"Heavens no Madam, why posting takes but a minute, and with such lovely prizes I cannot help but think that everyone will want extra chances to win. Why I know Madam herself loves to win handmade lovelies." "Madam if I wasn't an employee I myself would start a blog, just so I could post about this fine giveaway (*wink*)."

"Thank You Sebastian, I will do that then. I will offer a choice of any print, or a handmade mouse. They just need leave a comment for a chance, double their chance for following my blog, and triple them if they mention this post on their blog, or link to it!"

"Very good Madam, now if that is all I will retire to my post, and Madam,"

"Yes Sebastian?"
"May I be the first to offer my Congratulations."
"Thank You Sebastian. I should mention here that I will draw the winner this Sunday evening. May 3rd."
