NEW GIVEAWAY!

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you might have noticed that I love art. The front page of Etsy is a great way to find wonderful artists, that I might not have normally found.

That is how I found krisblues shop. Her work is pure and stunning. I just love it. She was kind enough to offer TWO of her prints as a giveaway on my blog.







This one is called "follow your heart, swinging quietly"




Print of an original acrylic illustration, measures 6.5"x6.5" plus room for framing.It is printed on enhanced matte paper with archival inks, dated and signed.





The next one is called "napping under marshmallow tree".





I can't possibly decide which one I love better!

So, to win BOTH of these prints:

1. visit Krisblues shop. find your favorite item.


2. come back to my blog and leave a comment with your favorite item.

3. please make sure you leave a way for me to reach you, in case you are the winner .

NOTE: MANY of you have not left a way for me to contact you. I'm worried that if you are the winner, I won't be able to reach you. So PLEASE check back on Sunday, June 22nd, to see if you were chosen.

If you don't want to leave your email here, feel free to contact me through either of my shops (links -------> to the right, Woolies and Buster and boo) and send me your email information.

4. Winner will be chosen by random drawing, on Sunday, June 22nd. I will post the name of the winner here. If the winner has not left a way for me to reach them, I will do a second random drawing after 3 days.

Enjoy looking at krisblues wonderful work!

We have a winner, please do not post anymore comments.

Sunday, 9pm, AZ time (12:00AM, EST)

thank you for entering!! Winner will be announced shortly in a new post!

Thanks for the contest :)

monica said...

Cardinals in Marshmallow Garden is just sweet

woolies said...

HELP! the first 3 people that commented have left no way for me to reach them! Please leave your email address!! thank you!

Jenn said...

It's a tough call, they are all so sweet. I really love the birds knitting print!! :0) But Follow your Heart-Go Together is my absolute FAVORITE! :0) Soooo sweet!!

You know who I am, Sara, no need to leave an email addy! :0)

Jenn said...

Sara, I would say that if they don't leave an email address, just announce the winner on your site anyway and give them several days. They will probably be checking back to see if they won or who won...you know? If not, draw again! That is what I would do! (and maybe put that in the announcement...say that if you don't leave an address to get in touch, you will re-draw names after so many days)

Good luck!

Morrgan said...

Wow, I just found a new fave shop! Such sweet illustrations. :) It's hard to choose, but I think I'll have to go for "follow your heart, swinging quietly".

(I'm also Morrgan on Etsy.)

Deborah Stinson-editor said...

They're all so wonderful, but the cardinals were my favorite. Would love to do something like this myself. I love art too!

I love the Rabbits on a Mountain Ash Berry Tree, it is so sweet. I love all her prints really, they are so cute and calming. ^_^ Wonderful work.

Meredith said...

These are so simple. They remind me of oriental art somehow. I like the birds in winter. The rabbit ones are all great too.

agordon10 said...

Follow Your Heart - On top of a Tree is so serene.

Jenn said...

Sara, also...if they don't leave an email address it's probably because they don't want everyone else to know/see it...why don't you just contact them through blogger? Go to THEIR webpage and leave a comment in one of their posts. They will see all of their comments, then they'll know they won. Just another thought!
