Dona Simmons

I am an almost 50 year old woman who is going back to college for a second time. I received a BBA back in 1986 but never really "used" it. I raised my kids and got on with life...I guess I always knew I was more of an "artsy" person rather than a "suit" I'm headed back to college for a BFA and to fulfill my passion for art! What better way to get started than with Faber-Castell as a partner! I hear the Gelatos are the bomb! :)


WOW.... I would love to win your AMAZING gift package! I follow the blog and some of your artists on you tube! Your products are the BEST!
I have used Gelatos ON EVERYTHING....I have some of the Big Brush pens for art Journalling. I can't get all the colors, so I sure would love to try more! FABER- CASTELL products ROCK! So that being said, in my best Witchy voice "Come to me, my little pretties!"

Lynn Bilodeau

I would love to try mixed media

Allyson T

I am an art teacher and would love to win this set!

Isabell Willms

I would play and play and play and play...well you get the idea ;-) colors are just pur fun.alot of the Faber castel products you can't buy in germany so it would be awesome and amazing to win. I'd love to be able to try all the technics i've seen and can't improvice with the products available. Unbelievable giveaway. You are amazing!

Suzanne MA

I am finally getting back into my art after having breast surgery and taking care of my children after we moved 3000 miles from the only home we had ever known. My daughter loves art as much as I do and I would love to win this set to start us on the right path to beautiful work!!! If I don't win its okay to because someone else will be able to make the world more beautiful with their art!! Love your stuff!

Gayle Curry

Would love to try these out!


Oh my! I love all your products! Crossing my fingers...

Fran Katz

This sounds so exciting to me, to win the Whipped Spackle and pair it with the Gelatos. I'll be attending a batik on rice paper workshop that calls for watercolor, but instead use the Gelatos and the Whipped Spackle. This will be used to color in a Zentangle design called aquafleur. Oh, so exciting.

Elizabeth Snider

I would love to win this caddy! I am so interested in learning new crafting techniques!

Darlene Propp

What a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

Renee Kunkel

Ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. With five kids and Easter coming up---- the crafts we could spend the day doing. OMG!!!! This package looks amazing and filled with products I haven't used before---- nor noticed in my local crafting stores (don't panic advertisers .... One of those five children is a 17 year old who is extremely autistic and I don't actually get a chance to browse the isles beyond running in for refill of supplies for something I already have in the works)

Jane Marlow

If I were to win this wonderful prize I would use items to create fabric art and painted quilts. I have cute pattern found in a quilting magazine!


Hi, I'm making a journal for my adopted son for when he comes to our house, I would use the prize to fill the pages of color :-)))) I would like to understand how much he is loved and desired.

Becci Springer

Wow, this is my first time here. There is so much to see and do. I would love to win one of these prizes. I am always looking to try new things to craft with and these look like something I would enjoy.


That mean? Of course I would love to win it because it's a great product!! thanks for the great opportunity!

Darcy Grieger

Just used gelatos for the first time this weekend at a scrapbook retreat. I ♥ them. Lovely colors and so easy to use. Color just glides on. I make lots of cards and would love to use the gelatos on them.

Bonnie Totten

What a great give a way!! I would love to add to my 8 Gelatos! I love how they help me create!! I'm a new-be.

Susan Schultheis

I'm thinking #737 comment is the winner!! Wow what a following! I would definitely use the spackle for some great texture on my canvas or art journal page and the gelatos would just be the perfect product to give the spackle some pop! thanks so much.

Jean Marmo

Oh - The things I could create with Whipped Spackle! it would be on my layouts, on my cards, in my art journal and on canvases!!!

Cathy Cosgrove

If your new product has the creamy richness of your Gelatos, then it will fast become a staple in my studio! We have had a cold, snowy winter in Ontario and I have been itching to try a mixed media canvas capturing the beauty of the bare cherry tree branches in our back yard. Each branch seems to cradle a dollop of snow and the whipped spackle would appear to be the perfect medium to capture the snow. I think I will use brown tissue paper applied with diluted gel medium to shape the branches and a blending of my Gelatos to capture the sky.
That's the plan!

Anita Scroggins

Such a great prize pack! I am loving the new bigger Gelatos!!


The possibilities are ENDLESS!!


I was intrigued by the consistency of the Whipped Spackle in Nadia's card video and would like to give it a try on projects. As to the gelatos... love, love. love them! So know why you went to Double scoops. The small tubes in the bright cheery colours just get used up too quickly. As I am getting low on those cheery colours, I would use them to make pretty things, especially since I just got my very first art journal. So many new pages will definitely need Double Scoops of gelatos!:)

Jeannine Brenner

I have recently purchased the gift set of gelatos and I love them! I would love to try the whipped spackle! I want to start an art journal so that is what I would do with this if I won!

Marcia Campbell

I'd use this in art journals and see what I can do to use it a watercolor piece.. I love to play!


I would use the products on mini pieces of canvas and use on cards.

Nicole Davis

I love making cards among other craft projects.


What a great giveaway! I would have fun playing with them in my art journal.

Laura Strack

The Whipped Spackle would work great providing texture on my mixed media canvas. I would mix it with some wet Gelatos and spread it through my stencils. I'd also love to throw a layer down and play with some different tools, such as a plastic fork or stamps, to create random texture. Can't wait to try this stuff out. Faber Castell products are always tried & true! Thanks so much!!

Brie Cirbo

Keeping my fingers crossed. Such a generous giveaway!


Awesome prize! I would use it all in my art journals and ATC swaps.

Fi Brown

If I was so lucky as to win this lovely giveaway I'd play with the gelatos as I've been watching my friends create so many beautiful items with them.

Monica Polignano

Oh fantastic!!! I just bought some of your gelatos but haven't had a chance to use them yet. I definitely plan to play with them on a layout very soon and I would do the same with this prize if I won. Thanks so much!!

Jennifer j johnson

I have been subscribing to several different blogs, mixed-media blogs, and that's all I would use your products. A lot of the blogs that I subscribe to use Faber-Castel products and gelatos. So I have been experimenting with these products and am learning to love them. Thank you for the opportunity to win.


I would associate them to my sturdy beautiful chipboards pieces from Tando Creative, and have tons of fun! Thanks so much for this great giveaway!!

Mary Ann Gutchigian

I would love to win this to give to my daughter, she is so artistic and has been too busy with college to enjoy her art lately. This would be just the ticket to get her started again, just in time for spring break and gearing up for summer art shows. Maybe she will make something for Beach House Retreats on LBI, so I can hang for all of our renters will enjoy it. Or better yet make something for The Wed and Bed so I can give it away to one of my newly weds!

Ellie Knol

O, I would start playing with it, not a difficult question!

Leslie Gwin

Just started using the black pit liner pens and love them...if the rest of the products are of that quality then I'm in! I would use them in my art escape...especially after a long 12 hour shift in a very busy ER! Thanks for the chance to win. : )

tiff firth

Bec Beattie introduced me to Gelatos. What a Heaven on a Stick they are. My goodness I can't seem to scrapbook without a little gelato on my work.
And as for Whipped Spackle..... that would have to be the perfect marriage with Gelato surely. What an awesome combination of product to add hues of colour and dimension to projects.


hi, I would use Gelatos on mixed - media projects, there is so much inspiration on this blog, it would be a great fun to be able to try different techniques girls from DT are showing everyday here ;-) hugs from Poland
