Hello Contestants!

Thank you for your wonderful and timely contest entries! The contest was supposed to close today, but after several requests from contestants whose cards got caught in mail limbo, I decided to keep it open until Monday, March 3rd to give everyone who tried, a chance to participate. Good luck to the remaining entries.

    That is very kind of you! Thank you very much for giving the cards some extra time. Mail limbo is awful :/

  2. Jenny says:

    Thank you, Marina, that’s very kind. =) I hope mine has arrived. I sent my entry Tuesday last week. Is there any way to check if it arrived safe and sound? Can I e-mail you somehow?


  3. Hugo says:

    Hi Marina, hope mine’s arrived by now. Have a wonderful birthday, and many happy returns.

  4. TK says:

    Thank you so much Marina! I was worried as my package hasn’t had any movement for two days after I mailed it out last week. Looks like it might arrive today but it’s nice to know I have a bit of extra time just in case there are more delays at the post office. :o)

  5. Hazel says:

    Yay! :D

    I’m sure many contestants will be happy to hear this. The post can be very unpredictable. (In my case, they said it’d be there in a week… But then it took two!)

  6. An Bidault says:

    I’m worried about my card as I was told it’d be there 10 to 15 days after international departure. I can’t check that but it’s been 19 days already… All I can do now is cross my fingers and hope it is in your hands.
    I’ll die if it doesn’t make it!

  7. Maia says:

    Happy birthday to you Marina. So thoughtful, even on YOUR birthday!

  8. Siobhán says:

    Happy birthday Marina! It’s very considerate of you to extend the deadline for a few more days: I’m sure my own has arrived already, considering it was sent over a fortnight ago, but unfortunately it’s near impossible to predict arrival times when sending internationally.

  9. Deb says:

    Hmmm…March 3rd is Sunday.

  10. Merri says:

    Not in Canada. :)
    Good luck everyone…..I’m looking forward to seeing all the wonderful entries!

    Oh that is wonderful. Thank you so much! I mailed mine last week and was told that it *might* arrive today, but possibly not until this weekend. Yay! (It’s the Amaranthine island painting.) I’m anxious to know if it will make it in time. Thank you again. You are such a generous artist to continue to give fans the opportunity to have a piece of your artwork who might otherwise never be able to afford such amazing work. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I hope that you are having a blast seeing all the entries. I loved the photo of the pile of them a few posts back. I can’t wait to see everyone’s submissions online this year. Happy birthday!!!

  21. An Bidault says:

    I emailed the company yesterday and they told me that my card made it. I’m so thrilled! Can’t wait to know the results. Happy birthday Marina!

  22. Rachel S. says:

    That is very kind of you to extend the deadline! I hardly ever check anything online, and did no realize there was a contest till last week! I almost did not make a card because I thought it would be pointless (I live in the far southern USA), and I know it can take up to a week minimum for mail to reach Canada. But I thought that I at least had to try. Now I’m glad I did!

    Happy Birthday, I hope it was a great one!

  23. Ginie says:

    Marina your contest is such a generous inspiring event I could not resist participating (not to mention dreaming of one of your dolls …)
    My card was mailed Feb 12th , but the tracking number isn’t working since it left Europe , so no way of knowing if it got to you safely , unfortunatly .So I really appreciate your extra days too =)
    I guess patience is the best we can do now ,until we can finaly admire everyone’s cards …

  24. noxy says:

    Aw that’s lovely. Heaven knows the mail is awful sometimes. I really hope mine got there, I mailed two of them a couple weeks back. *hugs*

  25. Arianne says:

    Happy Birthday, Marina.
    I do hope we get to see some of the home made postcards if that is okay with every one? I am addicted to art.

  26. Rubyyyy says:

    Hi Marina, when will you put the photos of the postcards online?

  27. jacci says:

    Happy Birthday Marina, best wishes for another great year

  28. Kait says:

    Can’t wait to see the results! Yesterday was my birthday! Maybe I will get lucky. :). I’ve never won anything before. Happy birthday to you Marina!

  29. Irina says:

    Will it be possible to see cards You have been sent on this contest?

  30. Michelle says:

    Ok, It’s the 4th. Are you posting the entries as you mentioned.
    Anxious to see all the entries.

  31. Sara Chacon says:

    Greetings Marina,

    What fun… getting all those post cards. Thank you for updating
    us on what has been going on. I can’t wait to see the cards on your web site.

    Thank you again Sara

  32. Rubyyyy says:

    I think people that drawed or pained their postcards should win because they worked on them when other people just easily bought and sent the postcards…
