{Cloth Paper Scissors} Giveaway & Conversation with Donna Downey!

Something wonderful arrived in my mailbox yesterday: the latest issue of Cloth Paper Scissors! This is one of my favorite magazines, and the January/February 2013 is exceptionally special.

To my absolute delight, I was honored to be chosen to participate in a new feature of the magazine, a "conversation" with an artist! I was especially excited because I'm a long time fan of the featured artist, Donna Downey. Around the turn of the century {the year 2000 that is!} I discovered scrapbooking, and not long after that I was irresistibly drawn to  Donna's amazing memory-keeping style. Back then, scrapbooking was quite basic compared to now, but Donna's work was a wonderland of dimension, color, fabric, and style. Over the years, she has developed into a talented mixed-media artist, and shares inspiration on her blog through her Collage Monday, and Inspiration Wednesday series, and so much more.

And look! My sweet friend and talented artist Michelle Mathey is also in this issue! Check out her amazing artwork on her blog Pigment of My Imagination

Now for the giveaway! I received not one, but two issues of the magazine in my parcel, so I want to spread the love and give one copy away to one of my lovely blog readers. For your chance to win the magazine, just leave a comment on this post before midnight CST on Sunday, January 13th, 2013. I will announce the winner on Monday morning. Best wishes to all the entrants, and many thanks to Donna Downey and Cloth Paper Scissors for this wonderful experience!
