Finished Painting and Giveaway!

Last night I finished my painting. I just doodled whatever I felt inspired to add and I love the look of her. She looks serene and happy. And I LOVE those colors together!! I needed color...
I decided since I have written over 650 posts - who knew I had that much to say - and am nearing 400 followers - thank you for still being interested in what I have to say - that it was time for a giveaway!
With a Light Heart
mixed media on 8 x 10 wrapped canvas
So, I'd like to give her away to one of you if you'd like her. Just leave a comment on this blog post and I'll draw the winner a week from today on September 16. If you want to mention this giveaway anywhere else (your blog, Facebook, etc) let me know in another comment and I'll give you an extra entry for each mention. Easy peasy!

And I'll also pick three other winners for something handmade, one of which will be this cute little clutch I made. It goes with the red flowers of the painting...

And then maybe a couple of things from my fiber store. Not sure yet, but you'll like it!

With that I wish you a beautiful weekend, and thank you so much for being a part of my life!!

P.S. This giveaway is open to anyone no matter where you live. Plus, if you have trouble leaving a comment on my blog, you can just send me an e-mail (there's an e-mail link on my profile) and enter that way.

  1. I love your painting and would love to win it. I'm always leary about being the first commentor-I don't think they ever win--but I guess someone has to be first.
