Pop Goes the Beezle Give Away

I know, I fall off the grid. Go dark. Wander off the reservation and don't blog for weeks then twice in one night.  Some call me inconsistent and unreliable, I prefer spontaneous and unpredictable!  

I've been spending all my available time toiling away in the studio cranking out bunches of Beezles.  I have the cracked cuticles to prove it and everything.  Here's a sneak peak at some stuff I've been working on....

An unbaked head in progress.

A baked head being fitted for atennae.


Some thimble-sized goody buckets to fill with teeny-weeny candy.  

Now, I'd like you to meet Nikolai: a Vampire-Beezle-in-the-Box.  He vants to come live with you. He's actually not at all dangerous, despite his Nosferatu fangs.  His collar and sleeves are cut from real leather. His head and hands are made from paper clay. I stamped his fabric body with the signature Beezle x.


Nikolai likes long flights after dark, sleeping in till after sundown, and type A positive women. Turn offs are wooden stakes, garlic breath and daylight.  Think you might be a match?  Well here's your chance to find out.

I'm going to give him away to one lucky follower.  

Here's the deal - if you are already follow my blog, you are automatically entered in the contest. If you're not a subscriber and would like a chance at winning Nikolai, then for Beezle Pete's sake: subscribe!  Just join in the right hand margin under "Mixed Maniacs" or add www.praterposte.blogspot.com to your blog reader.  I always love your comments, but to enter the drawing you have to follow, ok?  Cyber-stalk me.  Here's more info on following if you need it.

In a week or six (kidding, kidding, just a little blog humor there, ha ha, it won't be six weeks, five maybe, but six?) I will chose a winner at random.  

The first time I did something like this was in honor of my 100th post and I shipped the blog candy all the way to Norway.  For my 200th I gave away a copy of Mixed Mania.  However, considering the infrequency with which I've been posting I may not hit 300 before I'm too old and arthritic to type, so might as well give something away while I can still point and click.

Good luck and thanks for stopping by!  Promise to fill you in on the mystery Beezles soon.  I know, a real cliff hanger, try to cope.

You know I'm already a devoted follower of yours. I've been drinking the damn Prater Kool-Aid for over a year now, baby.

Just stumbled on your site and think your Beezles are darling! I'm not a very prolific artist, but reading your blog is inspiring me to get on it!
