Spreadin' the Christmas Love!

So, here it is, at long last... the biggest, bestest, potentially most difficultest patented HeArt Collective Trivia Torture ever!!! What, you may be asking yourself, is HeArt Collective Trivia Torture? Which would tell me that you were one of the unfortunate souls who has NEVER had the pleasure of taking one of my workshops... poor poor soul. :)

So, I'll let you in on a little secret (which hopefully doesn't deter you from coming to the workshop THIS weekend!), during my workshops I like to tease people by asking them random questions about everything from chocolate to Halloween and dominoes (yes, there IS domino trivia!) and I dole out prizes that can be anything from sparkly stickers to rubber skeletons or kazoos!

So, I thought what better way to celebrate the holidays than to torture my friends WORLD WIDE with some trivia about my current favorite subject and all time favorite recording artist, JON TROAST!!! Woot! And yes, this give away is 100% Troast approved :)

amazing photo by my friend Chrysti Hydeck uber talented artist in her own right!

You'll have to email me your answers to keep it fair for everyone!

Here are the prizes:

First prize: Most correctly answered questions will win 3 of Jon's CD's: Second Story, A Person & A Heart and With, From, To

Second Prize: A Lovely pendant from the HeArt Collective (if I do say so myself!)

Thrid Prize: An antique German Bisque Dolly (like the one pictured here)
