Giveaway! (Motivational friends and family included)

Here it is and I'm really happy with it.
Posted by Picasa

So I would love to give this piece to whoever wants it! Just leave a comment and I will announce the lucky lovely via a name draw on Monday 12th of October. However I don't know how to go about packaging this piece! I feel like such a hopeless so and so, and even more so that I'm asking for help (pleaasee) for the second time (the sewing machine dilemma). My artwork has taken me to so many different places mentally, both bad and good (i won't tell you about the bad places..but lets just say it involved being up till 3am with a blank notebook staring back at me...enough said) Anyway as you can see in the picture its a relatively small piece on watercolour paper. I bought a cardboard folder and some jiffy bags, but I'm not sure if that's going to be enough to prevent it from bending. I have also heard about these art/mirror boxes but was wondering if there was another way of doing it. Help!

About the packaging, i'll see if i can find a way, my boss's wife works at the post office, i'll ask her if she knows some way.
Oh, and thanks for the visit!

we could give this lovely artwork a very good home in our school library - then it would cheer up hundreds of people every day!

It's lovely, Khairun! I adore the yellow and her beautiful, dreamy expression.

I use and as sources for packaging artwork--I mail my prints in plastic sleeves with a sturdy piece of cardboard inside, then enclose the entire thing in a stiff cardboard envelope. Your local post office may have the supplies you need.

At any rate...if I win perhaps I could just come to Portugal and pick it up myself! That's completely logical, right?

I know Shelley really wants this - I saw the link on her site - but I'd love to have it too!!! How generous of you to share your wonderful art. Most UPS stores have boxes that aren't too thick and that will protect art that sure doesn't need to be damaged.
Love your art and your blog!
