And the winners are . . .

Okay, so Andy and I surfed really early on Sunday, I then ate a big breakfast, crashed out for 3 hours, and got up around 2pm in the afternoon and decided to pick the winners of the Mojo Mix Tape Giveaway.

So, if I sound a little like I just woke up from a nap, it’s because I did (a really long, GOOD one :)) The first video is a little glimpse into the creative process, and the second video announces the winners!

Thanks everyone for playing! This was fun for me and I loved getting some ideas of what you guys are curious about! I am going to put the ideas on a piece of paper and hang it up to use as inspiration for some future blog posts. Thank you!

It *IS* Maxfield Parrish! One of my all time, hands down favorites.

Boy do I have flat feet! And I could really use some polish on those toes! Why did I film my feet????

I almost forgot! Here’s a listing of the songs on this year’s mix, Occupy Christmas with Peace, Love, and Joy:

  • It’s December Again – Hymns from Nineveh
  • In the Morning – Jack Johnson
  • The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball – The Killers
  • Time Of The Season – Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan
  • I Wish It Was Christmas Today – Julian Casablancas
  • Oi to the World – No Doubt
  • Miracle (eat. Dub Trio) – Matisyahu
  • Just Fine – Ciao!
  • Pop Navidad – Palenke Soultribe
  • Christ Was Born On Christmas Morn – Frankie “Half-Pint” Jaxon
  • Rebel Jesus – Ivan & Alyosha
  • 40 Years in the Wilderness – Rick Hanson
  • Merry Christmas and Happy New Year – Martha Wainwright
  • The Christmas Song – The Raveonettes
  • Christmas With Bing – Poncho Pirates
  • Someday at Christmas (Alternate Version) – Jack Johnson
  • See You Next Year – Emmy the Great & Tim Wheeler

Some of the stand-outs this year, to me, are It’s December Again, Just Fine, Rebel Jesus Christmas With Bing, and See You Next Year. But, obviously I really like all of them for different reasons or they wouldn’t be on the mix :)

And disclaimer-> this may seem hard to believe given my passion for Christmas and the Christian leanings of this mix (and some of my artwork), but I do not consider myself a member of any religion. I love the spirit of Christmas and grew up with it. And my birthday is two days after Christmas, so maybe that’s why I *extra* love it. I don’t have anything against anyone’s personal practices or beliefs, I just want to make it clear that I am not trying to convert anyone to anything, well, except maybe to the love of cool music, and that you can make traditions your own, in your own creative/quirky ways. And to celebrate things with great zest, whatever it is you celebrate :) But that’s it, I swear!

    Lis » I got your package two days ago and my jaw dropped and I had to laugh thinking “our packaged probably waved to each other as they crossed paths!” hahahaha THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I love the postcards! Now I am really curious about them! Where did you get them done? Will there be more in the future???? I saw the one of Moose on your blog before I knew I would see it in person and thought it was adorable, so it was so neat to get the real thing and what a neat surprise!!!!!!! Fuzzy fuzzy warm warm right back at you!!!!

    Lis » I didn’t know! I love her too and have Frida stickers so one night when I was getting crafty I pulled out my stickers and made a magnet, and I just knew the high priestess of juicy creativity would love to have a home with you. Glad I was right!!!! I love the idea of a Frida angel painting!
