When it rains, it pours!
Yes, it has been raining and snowing here in Northern California like crazy, which is a wonderful thing, because our state needs it sooooo badly! But, I'm not talking about that kind of downpour, I'm talking about my latest winning streak of blog giveaways!
Being a total optimist, I enter the contests with plenty of hope and faith, trying to look past the list of names that are also hoping that their name will be the "lucky winner".
And, then out of the blue, I won not one, not two, but three of the last giveaways that I entered!
I felt like I had won the lottery and squealed with delight with each pkg. that came in my mailbox. My poor hubby had to endure my "look, honey, aren't this cute" remarks but I actually think he was getting a kick out of my being so thrilled with all the goodies!
Hope you enjoy seeing my "winnings" and I hope that you will check out the shops and blogs of the wonderful artists who put on these lovely giveaways.
The first giveaway I won was from the wonderful shop on etsy called Artsnark.etsy.com.
I met this artist on the mixed media thread and when I saw that she was having a giveaway I jumped at the chance to take part! And, I'm sooooo happy I did.
Artsnark also has a blog called "ArtSnark's Artifacts, art and musings for the eclectic soul" so when you get a chance jump over there and check it out, you'll be glad you did.
I can't wait to use the heart punch and rubber stamp on my own creations and the artists board and pretty papers are perfect for my collages.
Thanks ArtSnark for all the wonderful goodies :)
The second giveaway was from Catnipstudiotoo.etsy.com and I have been a fan of this shop since I first joined etsy. The reason why? because of their amazing and beautiful hand decoupaged egg and ball ornaments!
My dream is to decorate my christmas tree in these gorgeous ornaments one day! And now I have my very own collection started and I couldn't be more thrilled!
Catnipstudio also has a beautiful blog, so make sure you take a little time to enjoy the wonderful photos and musings :)
Thank you catnipstudio for all the lovely goodies, the tags, the beautiful paper and stencils and now my own gorgeous ornaments!
And last but not least! Thank you to tiedupmemories.etsy.com Every time I browse this shop, I am just blown away from the darling creations! So unique and pretty and I had been stalking a certain french style necklace in the shop for months and one day I just couldn't take the waiting any longer and bought it for my very own!
I wear it every chance I get and it gets so many compliments.
Tiedupmemories is new to the blogging world and this was her first blog contest, so I feel very honored to be the winner of her very first giveaway!
So, if you are in need of a cheery fun blog then check it out :)
Thankyou, tiedupmemories for such a darling prize.
Hope this post encourages you to throw your own name into the ring of giveaways.
You'll be happy you did :)
talk to you soon,
