Facebook Fan Page First Giveaway, a great success!

On February 6th, after emailing everyone on my FB friends list, I posted on my Facebook page wall that I needed to reach 200 likes on it. I asked them to please spread the word and share it on their wall/ with friends. I also told them that once I reached 200 I will do a lottery to give away one of my original Pen and Ink Zentangle(R) inspired drawings.

Well, it was like a roller coaster!! Within hours of starting the promotion I got the 200 LIKEs I was asking for and it has now surpassed the 200 mark. What a thrill!!!

So, I went ahead to make the raffle. My friend suggested it was very easy, just put all the people who like your page on a spreadsheet and run a Macros program... I said, a Macros what? To which she replied: It's an IT program that you can code within MS Excel. Oh no!!! This sounds like another language to me!!! Somebody help me!!! What have I gotten into...? So I thought, I better stick to what I know, I mean the old fashion way of course... I printed out the first 200 names from my FB page, cut them out and placed them inside a bowl. Then I asked an innocent hand to pick one...

... and the lucky winner is............. Valentina Toledo 

She won my original, Zentangle(R) inspired drawing on a card, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches (Blank inside, includes envelope in case you want to give it away or just frame it if you rather keep it)...

Thank you all who LIKEd my Facebook page. I really appreciate it. I also want to thank in a special way two of my wonderful friends that went the extra mile by promoting my Giveaway on their Facebook walls. They are Ellen Walsh Swercewski ( and the amazing Ann Nyberg ( They give back so much to the community, please check out their links to learn more about what they do...

So, Ellen and Ann, to thank you both I specially created two Zentangle(R) inspired little drawings (ACEOs) an they're already in the mail going your way! Love you both!!!

These are the two ACEOs I created for them, though they are going to have to wait to get it in the mail to know who got which!!! Sorry about that ;)

*ACEOs are highly collectible art cards (ACEO: Art Cards, Editions and Originals). They measure 2.5" x 3.5", which means you can fit them in baseball/trading card sleeves to create a gorgeous book full of art from around the world. Or of course you can always frame an ACEO. To learn more about ACEOs (ATC) please go to:

And the fun continues...
Since this first giveaway was such a success, I have decided to continue running this raffles every time I get 50 more LIKEs on my Facebook page, and I'll be doubling-up my fans chances of winning as well. In this way, whoever promotes my page on their FB wall or on Twitter, or in LinkedIn, or anywhere else, their name will be added to the bowl, as many times as they promote my page. So make sure to let me know every time you do that.

Remember, to let your friends know that to like my Facebook page, they just need to go to Corina.- (Corinadotdash) and click on the "LIKE" button on the top of the page. Thank you so much for your support. I wouldn't be able to do this if it wasn't for you!

NOTE: Please, when promoting on Twitter add @corinadotdash to your twit so I can add your name to the bowl!
