DRUMROLL, PLEASE! The person who collects the most stamp-selfie photos for The Traveling Water Lily Forever Stamps Project will win a free gallery wrap canvas (from 12×16 up to 20×30) of an image of their choice from my zenfolio.com site.
FIRST RUNNER-UP receives a set of my beautiful greeting cards (more than 40 to date!).
HOW DO YOU WIN? Tell your friends to buy some water lily stamps at their local post office, then shoot a selfie with the stamps (or have someone else shoot the photo of them) and send you the image, which you forward to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through FB. Be sure to give me the full name, city and state of each person photographed.
If their local post office is out, check out another post office or ask your clerk to order more. They can also be ordered online here: http://uspsstamps.com/stamps/water-lilies
THE ONES TO BEAT: Sue Cummings Titterington (27), Kaarvand Ferguson Betty (17), Steve Stroupe (14), Kathy Muchemore (7), Judy Schefcick Martin (7), Martha Biz (7), and James F. Williams (5).
CONTEST ENDS: December 31, 2015 (so that gives you plenty of time to encourage friends and family to BUY THOSE STAMPS–the USPS printed half a BILLION of them, so let’s move some stamps, folks! (FYI: Normal run of stamps is 20-40 million; holiday stamps run half a billion. They expect these to sell well so they upped the quantity!).
