we printed out the post from tuesday and clipped out all of the names of everyone (except me) who left comments. my lovely assistant folded them and put them in this little pink bag.
it is so fitting that the name that my lovely assistant then drew out of the little pink bag o'names in my yay-i-made-the-gold-issue-of-discounderworld helleristning/petroglyph giveaway belongs to none other than....
stacey childs, editor of discounderworld! stacey, please send me your snail mail address and i'll send a little piece of denmark your way (because i ended up using a stone from a danish beach--it just fit better than the ones from norway).
the stone itself is fashioned after this helleristning which we saw at an exhibition at our local little fjord museum last year. i used red ink because that's often what they use on the helleristninger out in nature in order to make them more visible for photographs. sometimes, like below, they also use white. it just depends on the color of the stone.
i wish i had enough smooth rocks suitable for painting on so that i could send one to everyone who entered (but oddly, i do not--must go back to the beach soon). thanks for playing and be watching in the near future for another opportunity. this was fun!
