happy holidaze...Free Pasticcio Quartz!

Oh yeah...here I am taking a ride in the sleigh with my ole pal Santa. Jingling some bells, heralding in the winter season, digging the snow draped scenery...
CUT TO:
Reality...
Rain...rain...rain...Southern California snow... the tree needs to get finished...where did I store the silverware for the Christmas Party..I've got presents to wrap...the holi - daze is upon me...

FREE DRAWING FOR PASTICCIO QUARTZ - ISSUE 5
In the spirit of the holiday season I have decided to have a drawing for a free Pasticcio Quartz!
If you go to my comment box and put your blog address and put a link to my blog on yours...I'll enter you in a drawing for the latest issue of PASTICCIO QUARTZ... That's Issue #5 - The Holiday Issue ...completely free....! I'll put all your names in a hat...and draw a winner on Christmas Day!
Now if you don't have a blog or website you can still enter...just put your email address and I'll still put your name in the hat!

Has anyone tried those caramels from Trader Joes that are drenched in Belgian chocolate and sprinkled with rock salt?
just wondering...

I wanted to turn you on to these wonderful miniature chairs my pal Connie makes. She made 3 special orders for me, for my Mah Jongg ladies. They loved them...what's not to love...they are precious little treasures that make you look and say...how adorable. Connie takes special orders too and will make a custom chair just for you...
Check out Connie's blog and ArtSeat etsy store for more eye candy...

Gotta go...

Angela,

I'd love to win a copy of Pasticcio Quartz, especially the holiday edition.

Just returned to the library the wonderful "house" book you and Sarah Fishburn did. I scanned the pages in the back of the book and can't wait to try making my own.

Love ya,

Your so cute there next to Santa! And hey it's raining here too (in Napa). Really pouring! Also, those are nice miniature chairs by Connie. I put both of your blogs on the "new" blogs I follow list. About time! Angela, I want to thank you for inspiring me to start my own blog.

Those caramels sound delish. I haven't tried them. But I'm curious now. lol.

The little chairs are adorable.

CBlakeley said...

Lots of rain here too. I'm curious about your photography. Do you offer any workshops on handpainting pictures?
I just got the funniest email on how parents have forced their poor kids to see Santa. Glad to see you weren't one of those unfortunate children. The pictures were hilarious though, mainly of Santa's reactions.

I don't have a blog, so here is my email:
blakeleyfarm@mac.com
Thanks for the opportunity to win 'Pasticcio'.
Merry Christmas!

I already have Pasticcio #5 so the lucky one who wins is in for quite a treat! We have been getting storm after storm lately. This weekend should be delivering about 18" inches of snow! I would love to link your blog with mone but can't quite figure it out. I'm hopelessly PC challenged. Got any tips?

James said...

Hi Ms Cartwright, I too would love to enter your contest(jegerman12@yahoo.com)Since so many have been the "first" one to enter I guess I will be the first one also. I loved your pic with St. Nick. Merry Christmas to some, Happy Hanukkah to others, Peace and love to all.

Deborah said...

Angela,

I feel a little strange writing to you. I have been enjoying your updates on your website for many years now, so it is about time I said thank your for your time and energy in sharing interesting and inspiring tidbits of your life. You have inspired me to return to my first love--black and white photography. I too began shoting and printing black and white at an early age. At the age of twelve, my father gave me a Yashika 12 twin reflex camera for Christmas and set me loose. I would love to be entered in your drawing for a copy of Pasticcio.

Thank you,

Deborah

Carmel , are you kidding ? I am struggling with chocolate addiction as it is. I'm up in Simi Valley and my friend Natasha plunks down this giant bar of chocolate (dark Belgian , like a 2 pd bar ) and says "Merry Christmas ". I spend the night trying to explain that it would not last the night if I took it home. I am so bad.

I'm off to Hamilton Ont CA to visit my sisters but I will check back to see who won. It's not winning thats important . . . . . it's free stuff ! And of course I get to raid everyones blog who posts here. I'm such a vampire.

And the three chair pic should make a neat wallpaper for my laptop. And you know what Angela , coming to your blog feels like this little puff of cool fresh air blows across my face. Very pleasant.

Vivian Love said...

HI Angela,

You are soooooo creative. I love it! Last week I just bought a book called "artist trading card workshop". I looked in the back and saw your name. I used to watch Lost in Space all the time. Let's trade cards some time. What fun it will be to win your copy of Pasticcio Quartz. God Bless You and have a wonderful, peaceful, and happy holi-daze season.
