Annual Giveaway

It’s time for the annual giveaway!  I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported me throughout this year and followed and cheered me on.  Each year as a thank you, I do a drawing and send the winner something special.  Last year the prize was one of my snowflake glitter ornaments.  I’m still deciding for sure whether it will be a hand-painted ornament or a small piece of art this year.  

In the meantime, here’s how you can get your name in the running!  I’m keeping it really simple this year.  You earn an entry when you buy a piece of art or ornament through December 5th.  Super simple – any of the items I’ve created at any dollar amount from any of my venues is eligible.  You can earn a second entry by being part of my email newsletter.  If you haven’t already signed up and would like to, there’s a spot to sign up either on the right sidebar or towards the bottom of the post depending on the device you’re using.

I’m in the process of going through my previous sales from this year to add everyone who’s purchased anything earlier in the year.  

I have a small caveat: I don’t generally know who buys items at the Shoppes at Oldies But Goodies or the galleries unless you’ve mentioned it to me, so send me a quick message when you buy items from there so I can get you added in the running.

May the odds be ever in your favor!

Holiday Gifting

It’s that time that people are starting to pick up their holiday gifts for this year.   I think this year especially, being able to start early and space out purchases, picking out special and thoughtful gifts, will be more important than ever with the year we’ve had.

With that in mind, I thought I’d take a moment to let you know what I have to offer and where you can find it. 

I will be restocking regularly from my inventory as items sell (let me know if you are looking for something specific that you don’t see out yet).
