Book Sighting!

Last weekend I was in Pleasanton, CA for a wedding and was browsing a local bookshop (the children's section of course). My sister-in-law asked if my book was there and I said, "Nah, I highly doubt it. It's not in very many shops." ..... I guess I was wrong! AND it's facing out. Couldn't ask for more! I introduced myself tot he shop owner who does some work for Chronicle as well as his wife. Apparently Diane Lang will be having a book signing at Towne Center Books in Pleasanton sometime next month.

GIVEAWAY! 500 Facebook Likes!

Today my Facebook page reached 500 likes! Hurray!

First of all, thank you all for your support and encouragement. You all give me motivation and inspiration to keep creating art and I thank you so much for that. I have spent more and more time posting on my Facebook page and less and less on my blog - which I suppose isn't necessarily a good or bad thing, as long as I am active on some form of social media, right?

So to celebrate these 500 likes and to say thank you, I am having my first giveaway!

I am giving away:
  - The ORIGINAL and SIGNED graphite drawing I did for the Vulture Verses "Spider Shuttle" (4x6).
  - Your very own Official Spider Shuttle
  - A Vulture Verses book mark

One Lucky winner will receive all 3 of these giveaways!

There are several ways to enter:

   - Leave a comment under this post telling me what your favorite commonly unloved animal is.
   - Send me a tweet, @LaurenGallegos, telling me what your favorite commonly unloved animal is.
   - If you haven't already, "like" my Facebook page.
   - Leave a comment on my Facebook Giveaway post telling me what your favorite commonly unloved animal is.
   - NEW WAY TO ENTER! Find my pin on Pinterest and repin it! You are automatically entered!

If you do all of these things, you will get one entry each - that's up to 5 entries!!

The giveaway will be open until the end of the month, March 31st (midnight, Pacific Standard Time). I will randomly draw one winner from a hat and will announce the winner on April 1st!

I can only accept entries from US or Canada for shipping reasons.

Thank you again for visiting my blog and good luck!!

Dimplemeyer's Design Interiors

Here are 2 more finished pieces from Dimplemeyer's Design. 6 more paintings to finish and it can go to print! This project has taken much, MUCH longer than expected, but I will see it through to the end and it will be something I am proud of! I am in the midst of working on this project and one other, which both should be done around May. Then on to another project that was postponed and my own book dummy!
