Everything Octopus: Cephalo-link Contest!

Everything Octopus readers are a fun and creative bunch! I'm constantly amazed at the awesome emails I get from readers letting me know about all sorts of octopus goodies so that I may share them on the blog. I thought it would neat to let EVERYONE contribute and to say thank you for your contribution and readership, by awarding a FREE prize to one lucky contestant.

And by "prize" I mean "PRIZE"! Behold the beautiful blue octopus vintage book page art print from Etsy.com seller, DreameryStudio. Absolutely FREE to the winner!

This one-of-a-kind octopus print (sans frame) can be yours, all yours!


To Enter...

1) You must be a Follower of Everything Octopus. If you're not already a Follower, go to the right hand side of the page and click "Follow" under the "Follow the Octopus" headline. You'll automatically get Everything Octopus updates and be part of a wild n' zany ceph-loving community!

2) Comment on this post with a link to anything and everything octopus related that you think other readers may want to know about. You can post a link to your favorite news article, artwork, something available for purchase, a video, book, an octopus picture you snapped, absolutely anything!

Each comment containing your cephalo-link will count as an entry. YOU CAN ENTER AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT.

***Be sure to include your email address so that we may contact you and tell you you've WON! If your email is not included in your blogger profile (meaning that we can click on your name in the comment box to access it), then please add it to your comment.***

The winner will be selected by a raffle, meaning that if there are 100 coments, we'll randomly draw a number between 1 and 100, and the commenter that corresponds with that number is the winner.

The contest will run through Wednesday, April 13th, and the winner will be announced on Thursday, April 14th.

Please feel free to share this contest with all the octofiends you know. I truly look forward to all your cephalo-links - the more, the merrier! Have fun and good luck!

being slightly selfish, i'll post a link to my secondary blog which i created to post photos of my tentacled collection. didn't have much time to update it, so it contains only a small part of my octopi, but still... here you are: http://allmytentacles.blogspot.com/

Of course I want to win, being a Cephlo Junkie.

I promise to put lots of EO links on my BitterEndBlog as well.

I love this mural. I think it would also make an awesome tattoo.

Dabbled is a lovely artist who is also a fellow Cephalo-phile. Here is a link to a recent entry about an Octopus themed baby shower she just threw for a friend! http://dabbled.org/2011/02/octopus-baby-shower-cookies.html

not sure how popular this is, but maybe some of you don't know it - Octodad, the game. :D

Here are some recent arts I have done that are of (or have)an octopus. Not to be "self centered"/"selfish" about it, but I figured that showing things that a person already has related to sharing things seems more genuine.

I also would be upset if someone else shared my art and won, and I didn't. SO I am sure other artists would feel the same. My art isn't the best, but the results are there.

The Octopus is getting a lot of love. I'd like to extend that love to its cousin the squid. Here's a favorite etsy shop of mine. I met her in person at the Handmade Detroit Holiday Market. Cleo Dee!
