Do add me to your mailing list! Although I think I already am on it, please consider this my entry for the contest. Johanna, every piece you create is simply wonderful, and although I am a big fan, I really wish I had the extra dough to purchase some of your pieces so this entry is very much worth taking a chance to actually own one!

Hi Johanna -
I LOVE Lucky Lumina. He has such personality in his face and the fringe around his neck is a wonderful addition. He'll need a little protection around his neck if he comes to Minnesota. I just ordered your new Halloween Party Hat set from Christmas Traditions. They look fantastic. I can't wait to display them. You do such wonderful work. Unfortunately, I don't know how to twitter and I don't have a blog, nor an account on goggle, etc. so this I hope will be my lucky entry for your giveaway. I would definitely cherish him and I know he would love Minnesota. Wish me luck.

A poem for Lucky Lumina-
WE THREE
We three went out on Halloween, A pirate, An Ape, A witch between.
We went from door to door.
By the light of the moon these shadows were seen
A Pirate, An Ape, A Witch between
and...
Say, how did we get to be four?!
Lilian Moore
See you at Halloween & Vine!

Hi Johanna!
I always look forward to seeing your work at Gifts to Yule, and Spring Fling.

I love your Halloween things as I am married to a Halloween baby. That is a hard birthday to have once your kids are old enough to Trick or Treat, as it's all about them! So I have made it a habit to really decorate for Halloween. I would love to have Lumina out to celebrate with us this year.

Have a creative day, Rita

Sarah Eagan said...

Hello, Johanna,

It's been awhile since I've ordered anything and now I'm in the mood again! Yeah! I love your dog! And of course your darling give away!!
We spoke a few years ago having inquired and managed to ACquire Gully! Have missed you, but always keep updated with your emails.
I'm wondering if you've ever been to Douglas, Michigan or Saugatauk, MI? There's shop in the latter that I thought I spotted one of your pieces...really cool shop. If not please check it out because your work would so fit in! A friend of mine lives in Saugatuk/Douglas area on the water and loves it. That area REALLY celebrates Halloween w/ even a parade. I visited last fall and plan to again (this summer/) See you, SarahEagan

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

oh - I've added Lucky's photo and link to this post on my blog sidebar.

I think I've completed all five requirements - but I'm old and might have left one out! I hope not!

Hi Johanna,

Let me tell the reasons why I should win this work of art :

I was born on a 31st; I am quite probably the only portuguese commenting on this post; I am tweeting you; I should have already been gone instead of being here typing this.

Have a nice weekend,

José :-)

Johanna,
I am on the mailing list and each time I am always too late to win one of your wonderful creations. Ah sad but true. Maybe this time I will get lucky. Will be more then happy to post on my blog for ya, even though being selfish and not letting anyone else and enter is tempting it just isn't the nice thing to do. LOL
This creation is so adorable and would certainly be the brightest star in the studio.
Blessings,Pea

Halloween is my unofficial anniversary but it's when my husband first held my hand in Sleepy Hollow Graveyard. We were going to a seance at Washington Irving's grave! He took my hand to *help* me up a little leaf covered hill and never let go. We were married on Valentine's Day, by the way---in 1970!!!!

Love your designs. I truly appreciate your art and am new to your circle.

Keep inspiring other artists!
