My First GIVEAWAY!!!

     

     Blogging is so much more than posting pretty pictures and getting kudos. It is a place where you can be appreciated and be inspired by the talents and kind words of others. A place where you can connect with people who "get" you. I have had people unknowingly lift my spirits on a bad day, just by leaving a nice comment. In turn, I have found great joy in knowing that my comments have brought a smile to someone else's face as well. There are so many of you that feel like old friends to me now!

     I have always wanted to host a giveaway. I've had companies contact me with items to give away in exchange for commercials. I turned them down because honestly I felt like I would mess it up somehow. I am not computer savvy! I put technology into the same category as math. I learn just enough to squeak by...LOL! Soooo... I think I'm finally ready to take the "giveaway" plunge. 

My giveaway is for one of my paintings. She would love to come live in your lovely house. Here she is...

(This painting needs a name...any suggestions?)


12x18 " oil on canvas board


To enter the giveaway contest...

1. Follow me

2. Leave a comment and include a name for the painting! :D



*This giveaway is only open to US residents. The winner will be chosen randomly. Duplicate entries will be exempt. Must be over 18 to enter. The winner will be chosen and contacted Saturday, August 25,2012. The winner must reply within 3 days, with a correct shipping address, to recieve the giveaway item.





Good Luck!
♥Linsey
