33,333 Touchdowns & 5 Giveaways


200,000. That number boggles my mind. 200,000 days is equal to 547 years. 200,000 miles is equal to 7,633 marathons. 200,000 calories is equal to 1,000 donuts. And 200,000 visits is equal to 1 very grateful and happy man.

Today my blog counter passed that mind-boggling number. So to celebrate my 200,000 hit and to anticipate the opening of The Book Guild (more info on The Guild soon I promise), I am having a book giveaway. Five different people will each win one of the following books:

Journal Spilling: Mixed-Media Techniques for Free Expression by Diana Trout

Printmaking + Mixed Media: simple techniques and projects for paper and fabric by Dorit Elisha

Collage Unleashed by Traci Bautista

Cover to Cover: Creative Techniques for Making Beautiful Books, Journals & Albums by Shereen LaPlantz

What It Is by Lynda Barry

All you need to do to enter the giveaway is to leave a comment to this post and include the ONE book you would most like to receive. In the end, I will divide the names into five groups based on the book choice, and choose five winners. Please make sure I have a way of contacting you to let you know if you have won. If you do not want to leave your email address within your comment, please send it to me by email.

Comments will be closed late on Friday March 26th and winners will be posted on my blog on Sunday March 28th. Good luck. And thank you all for your visits, your comments, and your support!!

Congrats Seth on both your 'milestone' AND your recent writing gig. I'll look forward to reading your always thoughtful contributions!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Please enter me for the *Journal Spilling* book, as I have never kept up with a journal and feel maybe inspiration would help.

XXOO!!

Becky said...

Found your blog from Trudy Callahan's site...lots of fun stuff!

All of those books sound great.

Congrats on your good news!

Bonafyde said...

Congrats Seth, those are some huge numbers soon to get Huger I'm sure!
The choices you presented make it so HARD to choose, thankfully me being the book whore I am actually own most of them! Might I add that they are awesome books! That still leaves me with quite the dilema... Do I choose;

Cover to Cover: Creative Techniques for Making Beautiful Books, Journals & Albums by Shereen LaPlantz

or

What It Is by Lynda Barry

They both look so amazing.... and Lynda Barry's book looks so visually crammed full of inspiration but Ido want to foray deeper into bookbinding and lack a good book that covers the nuts and bolts of it so I think my choice will be Cover to Cover: Creative Techniques for Making Beautiful Books, Journals & Albums by Shereen LaPlantz.

Thanks for the chance and I look forward to Sunday's post... I LOVE IT!

LuLu said...

Congratulations on your blog achievement!

What a hard choice - they all look splendiferous! IF I win I choose the book 'Cover To Cover: Creative Techniques For Making Beautiful Books, Journals & Albums'

So glad I found your blog!

Peace,

Angela Wales Rockett said...

Wow! A reason to celebrate indeed. Well deserved attention too.

I've been curious about "Journal Spilling"for a while now.

Billie said...

Hi Seth

Congratulations on your wonderful blog milestone. :) This is such an inspiring place to visit and always makes me want to create.

I would love my name to go into the hat to try to win the Journal Spilling book. I started an art journal and I need ideas to help free up my creative spirit.

In the past I have taken 'art' too literally and have dismissed anything that isn't traditional photographic style of painting. I'm discovering life and art is so much more fun and interesting if you mess with the boundries and see what comes up.

Fingers crossed,

Best wishes and thanks for the inspiration

Billie :)

jenny said...

Congratulations Seth - that is a mighty awesome number and a fabulous giveaway. I would love to win 'Cover to Cover; creative techniques for making beautiful books, journals and albums by Shereen LaPlantz. Just starting down that road of making my own journals...so much FUN!!
thanks and congrats again
Jenny

Lucky Dip Lisa said...

That is a mind boggling number! Thanks for the conversions too, it sure is a lot of donuts!!
I come here because I enjoy what I read and see, even if I don't come 'in person' you can be sure I kept up in the reader. Here's to the next 1000 'donuts' Seth!

Oh, and if I were to be so lucky I would have to soon Lynne Pyrella's books please....you would hear my whoops of Joy from here!

Trish said...

Woot Woot! Congrats!! I'd love a copy of Journal Spilling.

Caranam said...

That is a huge milestone. I found you via "An artful Life" and now I have a new blog to read!

That's a great array of books, but I'm going to have to go for Journal Spilling.

Thanks for such a fun giveaway =)

Monkey Mind said...

I rather fancy the book "Printmaking and Mixed Media". I've already spent my book allowance for the year so thanks for at least the opportunity to add yet another book to my sagging shelves.

Monica said...

200000?!? wowowow! Impressive. Congratulations.

WHat a generous giveaway. All of them sound great to be honest. But I'll follow your request and state the one...

Collage Unleashed.

Shelley said...

Oh! so lucky i found this, i have my fingers crossed for "Printmaking + Mixed Media" by Dorit Elisha.. my toes are crossed, too.

Christine Merritt said...

hmmm... I own a few but would love to have:

Cover to Cover: Creative Techniques for Making Beautiful Books, Journals & Albums by Shereen LaPlantz

Thank you for sharing with us!

a Creative connection said...

Congrats Seth! I am sending you 200,000 hugs to celebrate your accomplishment ... whew! I'm glad those are cyber hugs ... my arms would be sooo tired!:)

Any of the books would be welcome on my shelf ... you pick.

Here's to another 200,000 ....

Peggy

Julie said...

No book or me....just chiming in to say congratulations! And funny you should mention marathons...we're training over here for Seattle now.. carbo load Saturday's...and a garage full of Gatorade. Keep up the good work, Seth!

onelovelygurl05 said...

I would love to win Cover to Cover by Shareen LaPlantz

Kim McM said...

What a dilemma! It's like trying to choose between Brad Pitt and George Clooney! After much indecision, I choose 'What It Is'. Congratulations on your milestone! So happy to have found you.

Pixiewinkle said...

Congratulations! Huge pat on the back. I would love to get my hands on all of these books, but for now I'll choose Journal Spilling. Thank you for the chance!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Congratulations on 200K. What a great and magic number. Why is it that when 200,000 is reduced from days to 547 years, it seems like such a bigger amount than when 200,000 is reduced from calories to only 1000 donuts. I'm sure I could eat 1000 donuts in my lifetime, but couldn't live 547 years!

You make it hard to choose, but I've always wanted Traci Bautista's Collage Unleashed.

Linda Branch Dunn said...

I join in the congratulations, and the long line of hopefuls with their fingers crossed.

Secret Sunday is up there with the NYT Arts section for great reads. Thank you.

Dawn said...

Seth!! How did you know that I am looking valiantly for a good book to help along my new book-making obsession?!?!

Brian K said...

Seth, Congratulations on a truly monumentous acheivement! You and your wonderful blog have been so inspirational and supportive to so many artists. I really look forward to each and every post. Now when are YOU going to start teaching? Online classes would be awesome?!?!?!

Jannie Funster said...

I feel a little guilty here, as I don't reallyy know you (yet) :) But what the heck!

May I please respectfully say that the thought of... "Cover to Cover: Creative Techniques for Making Beautiful Books, Journals & Albums by Shereen LaPlantz"

makes me think that will provide hours and hours of beautiful memory making for my whole family.

:)

Thanks for letting me play too.

Oh my goodness I'm comment # 86.
Congrats on YOUR numbers. I would love to get 'Collage Unleashed' by Traci Bautista.
Great giveaway, thank you.

femminismo said...

Wow! It hardly seems fair that those numbers reflect such huge distances and such, and yet 1,000 donuts equaling 200,000 calories is such a small amount of donuts. (When I think of the chocolate I ate today, I am feeling very guilt.) Congrats on the visits, but you deserve such a following. You're always doing something interesting. If I won I would want - of course - Lynda Barry's "It's What It Is." - Jeanne

Jill Zaheer said...

Dear 1 very happy and grateful man:
I am 1 very happy and grateful woman! Both you and The Altered Page provide such enrichment to my days. Don't want to burst your bubble, but I am responsible for 100,000 of your 200,000 hits. Still, 100,000 hits from others isn't too shabby. Here's to another 100,000 hits for me and special thanks for your creativity, ingenuity, talent, cutting edge smarts, generosity and support for the blogging community! I'm certain that this is why everyone keeps coming back for more! Cheers and tremendous thanks again. c2c seems just up my alley so that's what I will select for your giveaway! :)

Thank you also for the giveaway. A great choice of books but my favourite would have to be Cover to Cover.

askings said...

Congratulations Seth! I apologize for not often leaving comments, but even though I'm sadly lax in that department, I look forward to your blog posts and find your blog to be the most interesting and thought provoking one I visit. So,your hitting this milestone does not surprise me....should be 2,000,000 in my opinion.
I'd be happy with any one of the books, but lean towards Traci Bautista's.

Congratulations. You have NO idea how this blog and you have touched us all -- well, then again, there ARE 200K posts so that should give you a hint.

Mmm. Well, I DO love anything by Lynda Barry. How could one not? Her books look like my and others' journals!
Take care and 200,000 more posts to you.
Candace in Athens.
