tegan  – (February 27, 2010 at 4:21 AM)  

wow, love that bow :)
i would probably have a drawing of me with a toaster because my blog is called 'tegan on toast' haha! xx

Sarah  – (February 27, 2010 at 4:27 AM)  

I would like to have a drawing of my dog.

simply because she's the most precious I have and that for almost nine years now! she makes me smile and happy everyday and maybe it might sound stupid but she's the one that makes me feel better after a hard day. unfortunately she's really ill because of a birth defect and to now that I'll probably won't have her more than 2 years makes me appreciate her a whole lot more. of course I took a thousand pictures of my Bella but I think a drawing is something more 'personal' and more beautiful.

LuLu  – (February 27, 2010 at 4:50 AM)  

i hope u understand, because my english is not the best :)
so i want a drawing just of me hehe
because ur drawings are unique and all would be jealous on me if i have one^^


Enigmatic Abby  – (February 27, 2010 at 5:10 AM)  

Hello !
I'd like to recieve a drawing of ... me ! with a beautiful dress to illustrate my blog ! It would me more personal !
But I really love the bow too !
Thanks for this competition!!


Dream ChYmEc!nDy**  – (February 27, 2010 at 5:10 AM)  

You really such a good artist. I like tour drawings. I hope i win the giveaway.. :)

Ulrika  – (February 27, 2010 at 5:13 AM)  

Lovely giveaway!

I would like a drawing of my cat, Mio. I saved her and her two siblings from a farm when she was a kitten because they were going to exterminate all the cats they had because they had too many.She was really underdeveloped and underfed. She lived a happy life but unfortunately she was put to sleep a a few months ago due to an incurable disease. I miss her so much, it sounds silly, but she really hepled me through some rough times and was such a lovely cat. xxx

Sam  – (February 27, 2010 at 5:16 AM)  

A drawing from you sounds so precious...

I would to have a drawing from a photo from me and my grandfather on his scooter. He passed away almost 4 years ago. On the photo I was not even a year old an sitting on his scooter while my grandfather is sitting behind me. He did everything on his scooter! The groceries, picking his grandchildren up from school, shopping. In good weather or bad weather. My grandfather also always gave me candy secretly. Fudge candy! I really have great memories from him.
I would love to give that drawing to my dad, since he still misses him everyday.

Hobo ........ ........ ........  – (February 27, 2010 at 5:32 AM)  

I wish any one photograph from the blog label: snapshot or from any post whichever photo you like but if wish to draw as free without any charges for drawing.

dheyzhere  – (February 27, 2010 at 5:53 AM)  

I want you to draw me because...
Nobody has ever draw me before..^___^
Your drawing seems real..
And I want it on my blog..
As simple as that..

Leia  – (February 27, 2010 at 6:24 AM)  

Wow, thank you Maria! :D

If I were to win I would ask you to do a custom drawing of myself... simply because I am so jealous of all the beautiful portraits that artists draw of bloggers! Besides, you are such a fantastic artist that it would be an honor to have a custom drawing done by you :)

Tonia  – (February 27, 2010 at 6:44 AM)  

Oh dear I'm torn: should it be the child (who has youth and energy on her side), or me (who has neither but with careful application of Laura Mercia foundation can fake it)?

The Moldy Cannoli  – (February 27, 2010 at 7:04 AM)  

I would like a picture of me with a cannoli, I don't think that some people know what a cannoli is and if I had a picture of one on my blog, then my header of "Moldy Cannoli" might make more sense. And I've never seen a drawn cannoli before. :)

ShoeObsessed  – (February 27, 2010 at 7:50 AM)  

I'd love that hair bow. It's too adorable for words. I've been looking everywhere for one here, but have had zero luck in finding anything i like. I love the look hair bows give, they're flirty and fun and take me to the 50s where women always looked so stylish.

Pappelschnee  – (February 27, 2010 at 7:52 AM)  

I'd like you to draw Sam's Grandpa (see her wish a few comments above). I will give the picture to her if I'm the lucky one. She can give it to her dad and make him happy. :)

Meaghan Kelly  – (February 27, 2010 at 7:52 AM)  

Aw wow! Maria this is such a fantastic giveaway! I think if I won I'd ask you to draw a picture of my doggy, Lola! She is turning 3 years old this month and has totally changed my life and I've looked for pictures of some that look like her to put up in my room but they're never right! Having a custom drawing would just be a dream! xo
Thanks for hosting it!

Sher  – (February 27, 2010 at 7:59 AM)  

Wow, I would love to have a potrait drawing by you! Maybe a drawing of me and the bf, so that I can hang on the wall of our future home together:)

Crossing my fingerssss

ana  – (February 27, 2010 at 8:00 AM)  

I would simply love to have a drawing of me made by you
what a great idea!

Erin  – (February 27, 2010 at 8:01 AM)  

I would love a drawing of some venus flytraps. I am obsessed with them and there is just not enough carnivorous art out there. Have you ever done nature drawings?

Fashionista in Training  – (February 27, 2010 at 8:03 AM)  

:) lovely blog! i would obv like you to draw me :) perhaps channelling a parissienne feel? but tbh, i would love you to draw (just to push your boundaries)edie sedgwick, she is such an inspiration xx

Erin  – (February 27, 2010 at 8:06 AM)  

I would love a drawing of myself. I take horrible pictures. Horrible. Accidental grimaces, surprised eyes, half-open it, I've done it. A picture could make me look sane!

Claire  – (February 27, 2010 at 8:31 AM)  

Oh I would so love a drawing of my dog! I love the drawings you do. You have such talent. Also I madly need a new hair bow and blue is my favourite colour. Good luck everyone! Thanks Maria.

JJ  – (February 27, 2010 at 8:32 AM)  

Ahhh--how I would LOVE to have a picture YOU draw of O-man. Love all your work, Maria!

kat  – (February 27, 2010 at 8:36 AM)  





Sarah Yvonne  – (February 27, 2010 at 9:10 AM)  

This is so exciting! I admire your heading so much. I would like a drawing of me, but a zombie me! Boyfriend is obsessed with zombies and I think that would make a lovely present. Haha. Of course, I'd keep the hair bow for myself!


Sarah Yvonne

Crystal  – (February 27, 2010 at 9:21 AM)  

Hmmm, this is such a difficult question. My inclination would be for you to draw just me, but I think I'm leaning more towards a drawing of me and my roommate/bff Kameron because he graduates this year and is moving out of state. I think it'd be lovely to have a nice "family" drawing of the two of us to display in any future apartments of mine.

onic  – (February 27, 2010 at 9:24 AM)  

i want you to draw me because no one ever did that haha, classic reason :)
you're great artist!

steph@alittlebirdieweds  – (February 27, 2010 at 9:35 AM)  

I would love if you could draw my soon to be hubby, myself and our dog Basil. I'm going to be recruiting pictures of my grandparents when they were married, his parents etc. so it would be nice to mirror that with a photo of our family. We could put it in a frame and use it as part of our wedding decor with the others. I'm thinking I would use it around the cupcake table. What a fun give away! Thank you!

nancy : The Sway Report  – (February 27, 2010 at 9:54 AM)  

hello Maria!

Yay I am excited about this giveaway!! Fingers crossed. I would probably ask for you to do a portrait for my blog header also... something fun! Love the bow!

Your writing is not chicken scratch! haha.

Araluna  – (February 27, 2010 at 10:21 AM)  

Hi Maria! :o) If I were to win I would ask you to draw a picture ! Because I've never had a drawing of myself before and your style of drawing is so beautiful!
It would be lovely for my blog header ! :o)
That bow is beautiful and oh so feminine ! I love it!
Great giveaway !

sarah louise  – (February 27, 2010 at 10:37 AM)  

Cute giveaway! I would probably have you draw something with birds, probably with branches, since tzipporit means "little bird." :)

Sarah Louise

The Drifter and the Gypsy  – (February 27, 2010 at 10:41 AM)  

ooh, what a lovely giveaway! I would LOVE to have a drawing of my dog because I love her so much. She's the big baby of the family :)

anne  – (February 27, 2010 at 10:42 AM)  

woohoo! a giveaway! please count me in :D

Cheri Pinktrix  – (February 27, 2010 at 10:51 AM)  

I think this is a really neat contest. I would love a drawing of either me or my cat! She is a Devon Rex and is very adorable but detests cameras and consequently I have very few images of her. This is her:

But I would leave it up to you to decide what you would use for inspiration for a drawing.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Alana  – (February 27, 2010 at 11:03 AM)  

I would love a drawing of me with my dog.. I have the exact photograph in mind actually.

I love that bow, and your drawings are amazing, so this is a great giveaway!

Joa  – (February 27, 2010 at 11:26 AM)  

Oh, it would be so nice to have a drawing of me! Nobody has ever drawn me and I would love a cute picture (lovely dress and bows!). I would put it in my header. :)

Laura xo  – (February 27, 2010 at 12:13 PM)  

is it bad to say that i'd like you to draw me? :O it would just be great to have on my blog or something!
either that or Lady her & i'm positive the drawing would be gorgeous!

really great giveaway Maria :)

Alie  – (February 27, 2010 at 12:20 PM)  

I would love to have that little bow because whenever I wore it I would feel like I was a very privileged six-year-old girl, and I would dress accordingly. Thanks for having giveaways!

A Thought Is The Blossom  – (February 27, 2010 at 12:25 PM)  

i'm gonna go with a slightly vain answer and say me. i've never had a drawing of me before, other than a caricature from some amusement park that made me look like Jay Leno. ha. your drawings are so lifelike and really capture the essence of your subjects. they're really special.

Mel  – (February 27, 2010 at 1:20 PM)  

Well, I'd probably want a drawing of a classic movie star, since you do those so well! I'm not sure which one I'd want, maybe Fred and Ginger :)

Kate  – (February 27, 2010 at 1:41 PM)  

Sounds ridiculous but I'd love for you to draw for me my stuffed cat. I've had it since I was born - 22 years ago - & it's definitely my most favourite & irreplaceable thing in the world. All that time I've treated it as if it were a real pet, so I'd love to see him looking more lifelike in a drawing.

Lilly  – (February 27, 2010 at 2:01 PM)  

I would like a drawing of Jack and Kate from Lost =D You know..this is the last season and they are so cute together!
Thanks a lot for this lovely giveaway ^^
eli_green22 at yahoo dot com dot br

Angel  – (February 27, 2010 at 2:12 PM)  

I would choose the custom drawing because I've been through so many blog headers and I couldn't possibly manage to get one as lovely as the ones you draw!!!

adin_22 (陳亞任)  – (February 27, 2010 at 2:49 PM)  

It would be so happy to own a personalized drawing from you.....If I get to win...I would treasure it for the rest of my life...

Katie, Tinda Keelie  – (February 27, 2010 at 2:57 PM)  

Just wanted to say "hi" to a fellow Michigan blogger!

Parker  – (February 27, 2010 at 3:05 PM)  

Dear Maria,

Thank you for hosting this lovely giveaway. I would love a drawing of my puppy Bono Baby. He's was given to me when my Daddy passed away. I never thought I would fall in love with a little black and white chihuhua. He is my whole world. He is nine years old now. He is my baby.

love love,
Fritzi Marie

Justice Pirate  – (February 27, 2010 at 3:12 PM)  

as odd as it seems at first, I would like you to draw a little tattered looking girl on a mattress on a floor if possible. She has to look upset as if wanting freedom. The reason would be because I give presentations on the vast amount of slavery in the world, particularly the little girls forced into sex slavery around the world. I would use the drawing in my presentations to show the desperation of why it is so important these girls get help!! I know it is probably asking for too much detail, but that's my heart's passion. I hate human trafficking and the injustice done to people.

by the way, the bows are extremely adorable. I still love those sailor tie-ons best though ;)

avalonne  – (February 27, 2010 at 3:18 PM)  

Hey Maria! Love that you're doing a giveaway! :) That's so exciting!

I would like a drawing of my hero of all-time, Woody Allen circa Annie Hall. He was so cute in Annie Hall, I love his stuttering, his mannerisms, his neuroticism. He's a huge inspiration to me, because his films are heavily dialogue oriented and some people find dialogue films boring. I love them, because it's hard to write great dialogue. He's a master at it.

If I'm chosen, I would love if you could add me in the picture. Because I don't think I'll ever have the chance to meet my hero. I don't even need to meet him and have a conversation with him, but if I could take one glance at the most influential person to me, I'd be so happy. Since that day may never happen, I think a picture of Woody Allen and me would be a great!

Good luck to everyone :)

Dollface  – (February 27, 2010 at 3:56 PM)  

This is such a great giveaway! Hmm I suppose it would be fun to have a puurdy drawing of me, I've been lazy about the blog and maybe it could punch it up, either way I love your drawings and bows!! You have such an endearing aesthetic. Hope you have a wonderful day =]

Crystal Ball  – (February 27, 2010 at 3:57 PM)  

I LOVE drawings/sketches. Love them! So I'm so excited about this giveaway.
I think I would want a drawing of myself for my blog or maybe even of my wonderful friend Ellie and I together, if that would be possible. She has been such a supportive figure in my life especially during the past couple of months which have been difficult.

And that bow is lovely, Maria.
Beautiful for Spring which is just around the corner.

Thank you for hosting such a lovely giveaway. May your blog continue to thrive <3

Tall&Small  – (February 27, 2010 at 7:11 PM)  

Great giveaway!
I would love to get a drawing of either my dogs or a drawing of my boyfriend and me.

The bow is so cute =)

Cindy  – (February 27, 2010 at 8:00 PM)  

Wow! This is such a generous giveaway. Thank you so much Maria! :)

I would love for you to draw a picture of the cat I use in my Etsy photos (my shop is Hellcat Vintage). Last week was my one year Etsyversary and I still don't have a banner for my shop! I would be so honored (and thrilled) to be able to use one of your drawings.

Amy –   – (February 27, 2010 at 8:03 PM)  

Ohhhhh, your drawings are just so beautiful. If I was the winner of your contest I would ask you to please draw a portrait of my 10 month old son, Aidan. Because, he is the apple of my eye. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be in your contest even though I don't have a blog :)

corazones rojos  – (February 27, 2010 at 8:38 PM)  


I would want a drawing of me with Stevie Nicks.

Sahakiel  – (February 27, 2010 at 9:05 PM)  

Ooooh what a lovely giveaway!!

Mmmmm I don't know... I guess I would love a drawing of Laia and I! I think I'll put it on a t-shirt, hehe!

kate maggie  – (February 27, 2010 at 9:35 PM)  

Oh, what a lovely giveaway!

I would love a drawing of me - because I have never been drawn before (ive secretly always wanted it after watching titantic, except with all clothes on!) and also - you make glasses look really cool in drawings! x

Erica Leigh  – (February 27, 2010 at 10:02 PM)  

what an awesome giveaway! the fabrics you use for your bows are so pretty.

i would like a drawing of myself! ^_^ with a bow. a big bow. why? i don't know. i just like your illustrations and no one has ever drawn me before, so it'd be fun to see how it would turn out.


koralee  – (February 27, 2010 at 10:11 PM)  

Oh my what an amazing giveaway...I would so get you to draw our sweet dog Rosie who is in dog Heaven that we could remember her..I would so stick your drawing on my blog. Thanks for the chance. xoxoxo

Priscilla Tan  – (February 27, 2010 at 11:52 PM)  

I've just started my own fashion label and it will be lovely if you could draw a picture of my new clothes which I can frame in my shop:)


Louise  – (February 28, 2010 at 1:43 AM)  

I would love a drawing of my fiance. We have barely any photos of us together and he hates having his photo taken, but I'm stubborn and would love a drawing of him to show him how handsome he is. ;)

Tom Tuttle from Tacoma  – (February 28, 2010 at 4:56 AM)  

what a great idea for business and for your readers!

if i win, i'd be very grateful if you could draw a portrait of my newly arrived niece. if you're so inclined, you know where to look: she's the celebrity on my blog and she'll probably be for a long time :D

Mo  – (February 28, 2010 at 5:21 AM)  

what a wonderful opportunity for us ;-)

i think if i could pick i would love to have a drawings of my EMT gang. My friends in Paris. I miss them so much. I have tones of pictures of them but a drawing brings a little more to it.

Rose  – (February 28, 2010 at 6:04 AM)  

Oh arent you generous holding such a giveaway! I would loooove to win a wonderful drawing from you. Hrmmm I think I would like a drawing of my bf and I.


Dotted With Hearts  – (February 28, 2010 at 11:21 AM)  

OK, this is going to sound a bit weird...

if I win this contest, I would love to get a drawing of two cute little goats!! I would frame it and put it in a living room in my future apartment I would share with my loving boyfriend. And so, everyone who enter the room would have to look at it.That way, I'm gonna have a room filled with The People who Stare at the Goats!

It's gonna be funny, cute, and in some crazy way, it means something to me and my boyfriend!
*** And I suppose that you have never drew a goat before :))

Whoever wins, this is one really nice giveaway!

All the best. xoxox

jennem  – (February 28, 2010 at 11:28 AM)  

I'd like a drawing of my daughter, because she's growing so fast!
Jennifer, jennem22 at yahoo dot com

Kelley Anne  – (February 28, 2010 at 1:53 PM)  

If I win, I would love to have you do a portrait of me for my blog. Just because I really like all of the drawings you've shown us.

Daria  – (February 28, 2010 at 2:06 PM)  

Hi!Such a wonderful idea.
Oh, I´d like you to draw Audrey Hepburn with a lot of ballons from the "Funny Face". I hope you remember that scene. Because, I love her so much and just because she is the most stylish and beautiful woman in the world.
Thank you so much.

Every Little Counts  – (February 28, 2010 at 5:33 PM)  

i hope this doesn't seem narcissistic but i would really like a drawing of myself....while i'm still young ;) your drawings are so fresh and cute and sweet and i would love to see how you would portray me.


Fashion Therapist  – (February 28, 2010 at 8:20 PM)  

This giveaway is fantastic. I would definitely love a drawing of one of my pups.

emma wallace  – (February 28, 2010 at 9:38 PM)  

What a delightful giveaway! I would love a drawing of one of my favorite stars, maybe Rita Hayworth or Sting or Gene Kelly.

dela  – (February 28, 2010 at 10:01 PM)  

i'd like you to draw me!! why? cause i always love your sketches, and i notice that you haven't drawn someone who uses hijab before. So here I am, asking to be drawn!

Reina and Tyler  – (March 1, 2010 at 12:17 AM)  

What a great giveaway! I'd love to have a drawing of me and my husband to spruce up our little apartment.

tegan  – (March 1, 2010 at 12:25 AM)

Coatlicue Fatale  – (March 1, 2010 at 9:11 AM)

DearBeatrice...  – (March 1, 2010 at 11:25 AM)  

Yay another giveaway!! Let's see..... a drawing of my portrait would be awesome to use for my etsy shop avatar picture and for my blog ^.^


Lizz (Lisette)  – (March 1, 2010 at 12:21 PM)  

Hi Maria,
I'd love to have a drawing of my photo (that you see at my comments)because it would be fantastic for my header... You are so talented! And the bow is gorgeous too.

daisymay  – (March 1, 2010 at 4:12 PM)  

I would love one of your drawings. I would like you to draw me I think, probably in my 50's swing dress. Or just my head with one of my trilbys!!

Michelle Elaine  – (March 2, 2010 at 10:50 AM)  

Maria you're a talented artist. I'd love it if you drew a picture of me, because I love to see the way different artists portray me. That sounds a little conceited as I type this, but it's just really thrilling to see how an artist would duplicate my facial features into whatever medium they choose. I'm a lover of the arts! Still wish I'd gone to Art School.



Annie, Time Enough for Drums  – (March 3, 2010 at 10:28 AM)  

Hey lady,

I'd love a drawing of me to put on my that totally narcissitic? It may be, but also super cool because you have such great talent! I hope I win! Annie.

jessica  – (March 3, 2010 at 2:52 PM)  

This is such a great giveaway! I'd love a drawing of me because you're so talented and you're drawings are always so lovely! I also really need a cool header for my blog!

I'm in love with your creations !

mia.  – (March 5, 2010 at 3:23 AM)  

You probably have no clue how delighted and extraordinarily happy I am to get in at the last minute!!

It's my birthday next friday, i'm turning fourteen! Wow.
I look up to you so much.
I don't want to sound cliched up I hope i'm half as cool as you when I grow up.

Your pretty, talented, creative and smart.
AND YOU HAVE A PUG! I love your dogs.
I've been asking for a pug for years now, but apparently they have bad asthma and take heaps of extra care than 'normal' dogs do.
Is this true?

Anyways, hope the weather warms up abit your end of the world.
Pretty giveaway, fingers crossed for an early birthday gift. ;)

mia.  – (March 5, 2010 at 3:25 AM)  

Oh haha I forgot to actually add the answer to the question!
Silly me!

I'd like a picture of...
A daschound! They are my number one favourite dogs next to pugs.
Seriously, i'm not actually dog obsessed haha.
I'd just love a sausage dog for my header of my blog.
They are so cute!

What a kick ass giveaway!
Would love love love a picture of myself for the blog I WANT to start! I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed in hope that I win!

bestie  – (March 6, 2010 at 12:18 AM)  

This is such a lovely giveaway Maria, and I am particularly excited because I've been saving up for one of your drawings! Yes, I realize it is only $18 (and well worth it, I might add!) but I still can't afford it with my sad government salary.

I would like a drawing of me in one of my outfits, which I will let you choose, because I'd like it to be more about the artist than me. I've always been delighted (and somewhat jealous!) to see fashion bloggers being drawn by many artists on the web, interpreted in such beautiful and unique ways. My picture would, of course, ultimately serve as my new blog header. (:
