Pick One: Giveaway Day!!


Well, it's finally here, giveaway day!  In fact, this is the first giveaway I've ever done - so it's especially exciting - and to make this giveaway even more super special, I'm opening it up a bit (though you may already have an idea where I'm going with this).  Instead of offering one specific painting, the winner of this giveaway will get to pick ANY ONE of my 4X4 paintings.  That's right.  Any one of them.  Your choice! 

Do you have a nook that could use a bit of color?  Know a new baby or kiddo who has a special affinity for a certain letter?  Looking to complete that art wall?  I think I have something for you!  I started with my alphabet paintings, combining whimsy and color, trying to create pieces that are colorful enough for children, but not too sweet for an adult to proudly hang too.  I have since branched out into other decorative paintings and my cycling counting set.  

So check them all out down below and then keep reading for instructions on how to enter...




Now that you have an idea of which painting you'd like, it's time to enter!!   

To be entered, all you have to do is leave a comment below answering the following question:

What are you glad for?

Personally, I am glad to be here (wherever here may be...within reason, of course!)  I am endlessly optimistic and love to share in the happiness of others - I can't wait to see your comments!!

**Bonus entries: Let's get connected!  Start following this blog.  Follow me on Facebook.  Or *heart* my shop - just leave me a comment if you do any/all of these and you will get an extra entry for each new way we're connected! (So follow my blog and Facebook = 2 additional entries) 

I will be taking new entries until Friday, May 25th at 7pm CST.  The winner will be chosen by random number generator and announced on Saturday, May 26th!  Good luck :)

Stay creative,
A


Psst - want to get in the fun on some other giveaways??  Check out Giveaway Day  through Sew Mama Sew!!
