Who’s in the mood for a little giveaway?

Claying AroundI watched Lisa Pavelka’s new DVD last night. I’ll be honest and tell you that I didn’t have very high expectations based on the price. A $12.99 list price for a polymer clay DVD is pretty much unheard of, and I was expecting to get a crummy interface, a low-budget recording, or both. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the menu was attractive (although I wasn’t able to click on the individual projects) and the filming of the instructions was clear. So why the low price? I suspect it is because the video, in many ways, is a glorified infomercial. Each of the projects uses one or more items in the new Lisa Pavelka signature line of products.

That being said, I still think there is some value to this DVD, particularly if you have an interest in image transfers and the use of foils. Lisa Pavelka’s water-slide transfers, foils, polybinder, texture plates, and molds are important players in each of the projects, but are not required purchases if you have your own favorite textures, transfers & foils that you can substitute. The projects are suitable for beginners and beyond.

So, who’d like a free copy? I’m letting the one I watched go to a lucky blog reader. If you’d like to be in the running, leave a comment and introduce yourself (in fact, even if you aren’t interested in the giveaway, leave a comment and introduce yourself – it is always nice to know who’s here reading!). Tomorrow I will have one of my evil henchmen choose a winning comment at random.

Good luck! Wink

  1. Hello. I made my way here via steph’s cup of tea. I am glad to get to know you. I have hopes of one day working with polymer clay – but at the moment I don’t have a space in which to do it. But I will enjoy learning about it vicariously here on your blog. Thanks. Frivolitea.

  2. Hello…it’s me. your friendly neighbor hood crisp making pest 🙂 DVD’s are lo on my list of things to get due to limited funds but I love Lisa to death. she is one wild and crazy clayer for sure.

    I just have to ask….how can those young men of yours be considered “evil henchmen”?? They are your helper remember? packer and weigher..and you call them evil. sheesh 😀

  3. Hi Lisa!

    I read your blog everyday and enjoy it greatly! Would love for you to enter my name in the drawing. Which one of the little cuties will do the picking??

    Keep up the great blogging!


  4. Hi Lisa — I’d love to win the DVD. You look great in your new hat, btw — very cute!

  5. […] I am completely underwhelmed by the response to my Lisa Pavelka DVD giveaway. Did I make it sound really bad? I didn’t mean to […]

  6. Hi Lisa…I’m glad you reviewed this dvd. I just saw it in PolymerCafe and wondered about it. I can deal with infomercialism if the info is good! 🙂

  7. Frivolitea – Welcome! I dropped by your blog today a said hello there, too.

    Kathi – you don’t spend a lot of time with little boys, do you? 🙂 Sweet as pie one moment, evil the next, LOL!

    Mary – I’m so glad you’re enjoying the blog! I’m enjoying writing it. Son #2 had the honors of doing the picking today. Son #1 was busy having a hissyfit about somethingorother. See what I mean? Sweet, then evil, then sweet once again 😉

    Angela – thanks for the complement. I wore it out to bring the kids to vacation bible school, and son #1 pointed me out to one of his new friends as “the lady with the clown hat.” There’s that evil streak again…

    Christie – glad you posted because you won! Son #2 chose your name just moments ago. I’ll email you and get your particulars. Congrats!

  8. Hi Lisa, I’m so pleased to see your emails each morning! Without a doubt, everyday they make me smile. I always wonder how in the world you have the time? Your life is so busy, and yet you take the time to share it with your faithful following-at lease I think are! How kind you are to let us into your fun days. I would just love to win the DVD, so hope that one of your chicklets picks me! Thanks so much, Patty B.

  9. Thanks for the kind words, Patty! Unfortunately my chicklet already did the drawing, but stay tuned because I think I’m going to do this *every* time I watch a DVD that I don’t plan to keep in my collection. And as for how I find the time? I don’t do the dishes or the laundry 🙂

  10. I’ve bought a zillion dollars worth of PC books and have quit worrying about the expense. It seems every one of them has a useful tidbit or two. So anything with any value at all is welcomed at my house. Maybe someday I will slow down from everything else and get really good in PC. I sure hope so.

    Love your site. I’ve found and bought many things here I had never seen anywhere else. I may be getting older, but learning is my life. Rebecca

  11. Hi, Rebecca, I recognize your email address (I’m better at that than names sometimes!) Thanks for dropping by and weighing in. I agree – there’s a little something in most books that is worth the price of admission! And it’s great that the thirst for knowledge doesn’t diminish as we get older, isn’t it?

  12. Hi Lisa,
    I see that I am too late for the drawing but wanted to let you know how much I always enjoy your blog. Thank goodness that tree fell while no one was home…sound or no sound!!!
    Thanks for the daily smiles.

  13. Hi, Cindy, nice to hear from you – glad you’re enjoying my misadventures 😉
