My poor little blog has been so neglected! I’m surprised it hasn’t logged me out while typing! LOL Anyways … in years past I used to do a giveaway each year on my birthday. In my book it’s better to give than to receive and you are the recipients! 🙂 GO YOU! I used to ask many of my online friends to sponsor my giveaways as well as giving my art and goodies away. This year I’m being spontaneous (came up with this 2 days ago) and I’m only giving away little pieces of my art. You will find every object I’m giving is something handmade by me. My birthday is tomorrow, October 9th and I’m officially celebrating my last birthday 😉 I’ll be turning 39 YIKES! Where did the time go? At least my hubby is a few months ahead of me … tee hee hee! So because my birthday is the 9th I’m giving away 9 gifts, a little of this and a little of that.
Here are the prizes:
Gift 1 is an original 8 x 10 mixed media painting on canvas I created in Paulette Insall’s class in 2007 called “Be Still” it is wired and ready to hang right out of the box!
Gift 2 is an original on a wood blank that was woodburned, collaged, painted and then waxed with beeswax. I believe it’s 12 x 9. It’s called “Mother Daughter Stroll” and is from 2008. It’s wired and ready to hang as well.
Gift 3 is a set of two blank greeting cards (3 x 5) with my original art on them. They come wrapped in cello sleeves with an envelope. One is my manatee painting “Three Sisters” created in 2011 and the other is a digital collage piece called “Summer Speaks” from 2009.
Gift 4 is a set of 3 artist trading cards I created for a Bad Girls challenge when I was on their design team. They are all having to do with Life. “Life is Love”, “Life is Funny”, “Life is Friends.” These are from 2009 or 10.
Gift 5 is a set of 3 random artist trading cards I have created over the years and are just sitting in a box. Someone should add these to their collection. They are all untitled.
Gift 6 is a set of 3 Halloween muslin bags that I hand painted in 2010. They are perfect for little gifts or a little stash of candy for someone. They fit cell phones and anything smaller.
Gift 7 is a necklace I made in 2010 that I called “Cool Cafe Blues” This necklace reminds me of blue skies and a favorite outdoor coffee cafe. Wood beads, glass beads, pearls, gunmetal chain and matching lampwork beads as well. The focal is a gemstone but I can’t remember which stone it is since I bought is about 4 years ago. Has a super cool button clasp that I just learned how to make from the fabulous Lorelei Eurto. Necklace measures 20″.
Gift 8 is another necklace I created in 2010 called, “Spring Emerging”. This necklace is a nice and light springtime necklace. It’s made of quartz, lemon quartz, apple turquoise, labradorite, seed beads, amethyst and sterling silver. Would look great with a lot of outfits. It measures 17.5″ long and has a sterling silver S-hook clasp.
Gift 9 is not pictured in the top photo because apparently I can’t count….duh! It is a full size print of “Summer Speaks”. 11 x 14 print that is signed and wrapped in a cello sleeve.
Hope you like the gifts!
Just answer these questions to be entered into the giveaway …
My family is going through a rough time right now but we’re relying on faith in God to get us through to our miracle. So my question is this … what helps you get through tough situations? If you’re selected what would you like to win? I can’t guarantee you’ll get it but I’ll try my best!
If you could go over to my FB page and like it that would be amazing! It can be found here. Hopefully I will further update my blog on events and such but for right now it’s just my FB page. Wouldn’t want you to miss out! So thanks for helping me celebrate this year! Also check out my website for most of my links as well.
You have today and all day tomorrow to enter but all you need to do is add a comment and you’re entered. I will choose the winners on Tuesday or Wednesday. I have a crazy week. Meeting with a doctor tomorrow to discuss working on his new kids book as an illustrator! Wish me lots of blessings and luck with that. I’m a bit nervous! Thanks for reading and playing along! Happy birthday!!! 🙂
