It's a GiVeAwAy Part II :)


I had my first blogging anniversary!! I completely missed it! I thought it was a completely different date. However, that's no reason not to CELEBRATE!

I started this blog when I started painting. I've crafted forever, but was always intimidated by the almighty brush. I didn't feel like I had any control. Something made me want to try anyway. It was FUN, it was FREEing, and it felt GREAT. So I tried some more. People started buying my paintings and I happily sent them to their new homes...so grateful that someone else liked what I did.

I'm definitely no expert. I know that I have a lot left to learn and I'm excited to do just that. I know that I want to take this to another level. It calls to me, I stay up late to do it, truly to the point of falling asleep at the table. I LOVE it.

My story of the past year is here, so I won't summarize it for you except to say that I have had a wonderful time creating and meeting people that create. Now that I have this outlet, I don't know what I'd do without it...without lovely people like you visiting me.

In honor of this, I'm having another giveaway...yes two giveaways going on at the same time! Woohoo! Feel free to enter both...the other one is below.

I blog to share what I've made...and for that I'll be giving away:

A print from my etsy shop, you pick after you win. :)

I blog to meet people that create...and to encourage you to create MORE I'll also be giving away:

A $15 gift card to Micheal's, JoAnns, or Hobby Lobby...you pick after you win. :)

So here's how to enter. You can:

1. Follow my blog...it's to the right and oh so easy to do. And guess WHAT? Anyone who follows my blog will be automatically entered into any and all future giveaways I do...cool, huh?

2. Leave a comment on this post. That will get you a second entry.

3. Link to my blog using the badge above and earn 3 addition entries!!! Please comment here afterward to let me know so I can give you credit. I would appreciate this so much, you have no idea. I want to grow and meet new people that are as great as the people I know now. :)

Thank you...thank you for visiting, thank you for sharing, and thank you for being a lovely part of my life. :) And good luck!

I've been following your blog for Christmas I think, but I just did it from a shortcut on my desktop. I actually signed up to follow today through the dashboard...I'll have to remember to go read there more often! Thanks for the giveaway and hope to see more eye candy in the future....
