2Day Ride-the-Wave Giveaway!

POST EDIT: Wow!!! Speaking of giveaways, I am so honored and just... stunned! I visited the wonderful blog of talented watercolor artist, Laura Trevey, to see her giveaway!
You'll never believe what it is!! Go see---> lauratrevey.blogspot.com!


My weekend plans ended up being very different than originally intended... and I was bummed. But, after a while I got to thinking... I'm never online on the weekends-- I'm either doing art events or working on the river raft-guiding. So, I decided to "ride the wave" that followed the "rain" I've been given this weekend, and have some fun with it! I put together a kind-of-last-minute, possibly-hairbrained idea...

And I think you'll be glad I did-- a couple of lucky readers will benefit as a result of my weekend. I'm hosting a TWO-PHOTO-GIVEAWAY this weekend; one to be awarded for Saturday and one for Sunday.

The giveaway will revolve around my mental "theme" of the weekend, so to speak. Saturday I will be giving away "After the Rain" (click link to see listing details in my Etsy shop).


And Sunday, I will award the lucky the winner the photo of their CHOICE from my Etsy shop! Winner may choose any print 8x12 or smaller.


To ENTER the Giveaway:
Simply leave a comment on this post indicating which day you would like to enter. Wow-- you only get to enter one day?!? Sounds kind of harsh, right? I thought so too, so, here's the deal: you MAY enter both days but it will require 2 separate comments to be left-- 1 on Saturday and 1 on Sunday. For purposes of determining Sat vs. Sun, any comments left after midnight CA (Pacific) time will be considered Sunday, and any left after midnight on Sunday will be considered "not an entry" (but always appreciated). Can one person win both days? NO--the whole idea is to give more people more of a chance!
Winners will be chosen randomly, probably using one of those random-chooser-service-thingies (if I can find one and figure out how to apply it). Otherwise I will just have to devise some creative way of picking a random winner fairly (like out of a hat, but... hopefully I'll think up something more interesting).

So, there it is!
When does the giveaway officially begin?

NOW! Go!
Good Luck, have fun playing, and have a fantastic weekend!


(and for those who were wondering what happened after that little "launch" above...

Great giveaway and the rafting looks awesome. We are headed out to Colorado next month and might get to do a little ourselves. We have only gone once and the rapids were babies. Could be fun!

Hey there,

I was so delighted to receive your email today. I love your work and love to promote it. To receive your email today was a ray of sunshine in my day.

I guess responding now puts me in the draw for Saturday. :-)

Thank you for your work and your heart, Kenna.

Take care and create a great day!

Harry

PS This is a duplicate comment - I caught a spelling error in the first one (perfectionist ... sorry). :-)

OK, I'm putting my name in for Saturday, please. I'd love to do both days, unfortunately, I'm away tomorrow most of the day.
As a fellow photographer, I really love and appreciate your work. Oh yeah, I'm so jealous about the rafting thing! I've ALWAYS wanted to do that! Best wishes.

How exciting! Sign me up for Sunday! I love your green tree in the slot canyon that I have on my Friday Favorites this week. It is gorgeous!

Hi Kenna,

Thank you for the email today, this giveaway is really nice of you. I would like to be entered in the drawing for Sunday please. That's not to say I don't like the image for Saturday though. ;-)

Hi Kenna, thanks for the heads up about your giveaway and the fact that you have visited NZ! I went back to your shop and found I love the one called Solitude. I am actually from the north island but still I love this shot.

I'd like to enter Sunday's draw. thank you!

Ok... it seems a few folks misunderstood the "rules" and I do so hate to be a meanie so... barring any objections (please let me know if you think this is unfair in any way), I will allow those who commented Saturday (but meant to enter Sunday) to "cross-over" thereby, removing their entry from Saturday and entering it on Sunday.
Obviously, this will not count toward an "extra Sunday" entry for anyone though-- still one/person.
Sound ok? You may comment or email me any objections if applicable.

OK, here is my Sunday entry! It was such a tough choice, but I think this is the one I would choose if I am the lucky gal:
"Sisters of the Sea"

crossing my fingers!

Have a wonderful Sunday! :), allie

So hard to choose, Kenna!!! Your photos are all sooo lovely. But my favorite, I think, for now, is Frosted - that tree covered in hoarfrost. It is magical!

Elisa said...

Hey Kenna, I can never pass up a give away! But to be blessed by such a great artist is definitely worth entering! Thanks for sharing your gift with us and the world. God bless!

Love your photography!

I'm in the hat--just please don't take me for a ride on that wild looking river--;0

Florida Sue said...

Well gee whiz, I thought I left a comment but I guess I didn't. It's okay if I am too late for Sunday, but I just wanted to say that your photography is so beautiful and I have enjoyed reading your blog and learning a bit about your very interesting life!

Kenna,
Lucky you to be into river rafting and work in the outdoors. I was also fortunate when I went water rafting. It was raining, so I thought to myself, darn -I had hoped for better weather. BUT it was wonderful, beautiful AND Fantastic. Because of the clouds, there wasn't any glare, sunburns or vision blindness, just more water and the rain was so much warmer than the river. It was on the Rouge River in Canada and I'd do it again in a heartbeat!
Please enter me in your giveaway, 3is one of my lucky numbers and I do so appreciate your art. Thank you for hosting this giveaway. Blessings & Ride on!
Jane

It's me again! Can't miss an opportunity to win one of your fantastic photos! As mentioned earlier I love the slot canyon tree shot!

down and out chic said...

ok, i'm crossing my fingers...my favorite flower is the gerber daisy so i'd looooove to win 'hope'! plus it would be perfect on my art wall (that really needs some help!)

i used to be a white water river guide so these river photos brought a big smile to my face.

Oop! Just checked my email and have a "write in" entry from my mailing list...

Kathy M. ran into troubles trying to post her comment, but I can assure you, her email was posted before midnight! Consider yourself "entered" Kathy!

Beholden-To-Nature (Kenna) said...

OOOOOooooK folks! That's a wrap!

Cinderella's coach just turned into a pumpkin...

I'm off to set up the official "winner-picker-outer" system (can't use randomizer with the mistaken Sunday entries and the write-in! Not to worry, I have some fun & fair ideas coming together...

Darn. I'm too late. Thanks for leaving me a comment though-it was very thoughtful of you! Have a great day!
