Wait, what? A giveaway? The giving-away of a thing? A thing being given?
YES, FRIEND. All of the above!
Okay, so earlier this year I upgraded my DSLR to a Nikon D5100, because I needed video capacity and my D40 was looking a bit shabby. And I was like, right, I’ll keep the old one as back-up, but having brought it all the way to the UK from Japan… it’s just been sitting on my desk for months getting dusty. I thought about selling it on Amazon, but let’s be real, there is a lot of cake mix encrusted into this thing (although it still works perfectly). And plus, you know, everybody’s gotta start somewhere, and it just isn’t feasible for a lot of people to put down over £100 on a DSLR camera, even an old model.
So: a giveaway. This is what you get if you win:
- Secondhand Nikon D40 DSLR camera body (+ strap)
- AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm kit lens
- 1GB SD memory card
I bought this camera in 2008, so we’re not talking top of the range, but I’ve been using it right up until this year and it’s served me well (as far as I can remember, those are all pictures taken using the kit lens included in this giveaway - which is why they’re mostly a bit old, since I upgraded to a fancier one after they were taken).
How to enter:
- Reblog this post. Likes don’t count, which is a metaphor for popularity not counting for much in life, which is sort of a lie, but mostly I just want to signal boost this.
- You can reblog one time per day. I’m going to try and monitor this to prevent people taking advantage, given that that’s not the spirit of the giveaway (guys, I am semi-homeless and unemployed, I’m choosing to give this camera away rather than sell it, please be good people, ‘kay?)
- Be willing to send me a home or receiving address! I mean, duh, but also, wow, that would be awkward. If you live with family or people who will not be happy at you receiving mysterious internet packages, factor that in.
- You do not have to follow me on Tumblr, although it would be super nice if you did. Super nice. As nice as me. I’m a delight. Just saying.
I will post anywhere in the world, and one winner will be picked at random on November 1st!
*** If you follow my RSS feed, or came over from Blogger when I moved this site - I have not yet figured out how to work this thing. Theoretically there should be a way for you to comment on posts. For now, gomen! This giveaway is for Tumblr followers only, unless you are tech-savvier than I am. Still love ya.
So I’m doing ART GIVEAWAY to thank everyone who’s been supporting me (◡‿◡✿)
- It’s a thank-you giveaway so obviously, only for followers (but please, don’t follow just for the sake of giveaway;;)
- To enter either reblog (once) or like this post, don’t do both, we want equal chances for everyone, right?
- There’ll be 2 ‘winners’ (or more, depending on the amount of free time and access to the computer), I’ll choose them by random number generator.
- The prize is one A4 drawing done in style you get to choose (cell-shaded characters with background or soft coloured waist-up character without background or soft coloured portrait with background; examples above). I’m not going to put any limitations on the number of characters or complexity of bg/characters or whatnot but please, be reasonable;;;
Ends on 6th of July
✧･ﾟ: *✧･ﾟ:* the time has come *:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧
to celebrate how many of you
foolsfollow me i’m doing an art giveaway! i will pick 3 winners: 1 will get a painted portrait of whoever-they-want, the other 2 will get a colored full body of whoever-they-want!
now onto the rules:
- reblogging is the only way to enter! tumblr doesn’t count multiple reblogs anymore so you have only one reblog (use it wisely, young one)
- you can like the post; it does not guarantee your enter, but it will double your chances for being picked (if your like wins, i will see if you reblogged it. if you didn’t, the prize goes to someone else)
- this is a little gift for my followers, so as logic dictates you have to follow me to win; but don’t do it if you’ll be gone when the giveaway is over. once you follow me the contract is sealed, there is no turning back. you are here forever. (no pressure right)
- giveaway ends on july 25 (so you have a month). i know reblogging takes a while, like 6 to 8 days. you guys need time.
- accept the virtual kiss on your cheek from yours truly. press your face to the screen, c’mon, don’t be shy. *smooch*
have fun! because reblogging shit is always fun huh
Wow, I can totally see how much you value your friendships…

since my site’s store isn’t working with paypal at the moment, we’re gonna have to do this the hard-ish way.
-The price of the book is $22 for US orders and $34 for international. Shipping is included in these prices.
-Send the appropriate total to elainesmailaddress (at) gmail.com through paypal, and INCLUDE YOUR FULL MAILING ADDRESS with the payment!
