GIVING AWAY A PIECE OF ART
Three years ago Sonlight sent out a letter to many of their customers thanking them for choosing their curriculum. Included was a one-of-a-kind print of Norman Rockwell's Land of Enchantment, pictured above, that they had made just for their customers. Originally printed in the December 22, 1934 issue of The Saturday Evening Post, Sonlight had it printed on archival-quality, acid-free paper.
It's a neat picture, filled with characters from various children's stories. However, for three years it has sat in my closet. I'd love for someone to frame and hang it, to enjoy seeing it in their home or workplace. So, I'm giving it away! As Christmas is right around the corner, I'd encourage you to enter to win the print for yourself or to give it to someone you know would love it.
Heads will roll if I find out the winner sold it. Understood? Okey dokey.
I'll give one full day for each year the print has sat in my closet. So, between now and noon on 11/10/09 you can enter the contest by leaving a comment telling me what one of your favorite childhood books was. Only one entry per person. I'm willing to ship anywhere in the United States. I'll do a random drawing and announce the winner before I go to bed on Tuesday night.
As a sidenote, the print is about 12.75 x 23.5 inches (mine actually has a cream colored border around the edge) and you can check out Sonlight's tips for framing the print right here.
