I know what you mean. I’m torn when there is a giveaway with several products, and I have some but not others. But then, if I do enter those, I turn around and give away the duplicates, so I don’t feel too bad if I enter them.October 14, 2017 at 3:35 pm
Actually, since the lids are not hinged, we could swap my Jubilee for one of your florals, if you like. I intend to collect, but I’m not in hurry – I’ll buy them as I need the cards. This way you’d have two, and I’d still have one – just a different one.October 14, 2017 at 5:03 pm
I’ll also be giving away a tin of postcards in the next month. :o)October 14, 2017 at 5:04 pm
thanks Kate, good to see you can get a huge amount of paint in those!October 16, 2017 at 5:42 pm
Ohhh, thank you for the review! These are actually the exact size I prefer doing art on, so I need to get some.
And the artwork on the tin is awesome! I think my favorite is the lavender (?) field one I saw on google images.October 16, 2017 at 6:17 pm
I’m definitely the one who is unhinged. I stated that we could swap lids because they weren’t, but, yeah, the postcard tins are hinged and so are the YouTangle and who knows what I was thinking of. Too many tins loose in my head and they’re jangling around in all that empty space!October 16, 2017 at 6:28 pm
There are currently 10 editions of these tins. I haven’t seen all of the paintings yet. I’m trying to decide if I want to collect these or save my money for something else. Like food and rent, but probably other art supplies, lol.October 16, 2017 at 8:07 pm
Lol, perhaps thankfully, I don’t have enough money to collect them all anyways, so no temptation to try. But they are so pretty! I can understand why you’d want to collect them all.October 16, 2017 at 9:34 pm
holy cow! I DIDN’T KNOW THERE WERE TEN! I can see you eventually getting all ten. Where will you find them? Did you ask Carol how many there were?October 16, 2017 at 9:34 pm
I know, me too. I can imagine how pretty it would be to have them all on a shelf filled with finished art. Kinda a unique kind of journal!October 16, 2017 at 9:39 pm
It isn’t at the top of my list, but I’ll keep my eye on ebay, etc. and try to find good deals on them.October 16, 2017 at 9:41 pm
Hahnemühle has a blog, and there was a post talking about the Jubilee lid, which they said was the 10th edition of the postcard tins. I think the Limited Edition lid that Kate has (and that I’m giving away) is the 9th. I haven’t been able to find a list of all of them, but I’ve been looking.October 16, 2017 at 10:04 pm
I didn’t know they had them on eBay. Cool. you’ll have to do a show and tell when you get a few.October 17, 2017 at 11:37 am
Make sure you put your link on this thread! Close to the top!October 17, 2017 at 11:53 am
Replying to several comments…. sorry have a cold!
Katie I love the size too. I keep the stack by my bedside for middle-of-the-night-i-can’t sleep sketching.
Sandra I can see we will be bidding against each other! We will stay in touch about what we score!
Jenn I like seeing mine on the art desk lined up! But I would swap some of the floral for others if I find them!
