Yeahhhh, the giveaway has begun!!!

Hi all!

Yes, the ZNE basket giveaway has finally arrived!
And I will be soooo jealous of whoever wins it, because there
are some treasures in it that I would love to keep!!!
The ZNE art retreat was soooo wonderful for many reasons but the best part was meeting some of the most amazing women
At the vendors fair on Saturday and Sunday I went around to a few of these talented ladies and asked if they would like to contribute to a blog giveaway and they all were so generous and happy to be a part of it.
The five artists who contributed are so talented and on top of the talent they are also wonderful sweet women. I was so blessed in meeting them and now being able to say that we are friends.

During the make and take sessions I had a table next to Ann Denise of the etsy shop whimfancydesigns and she was giving a workshop on these darling girly crepepaper wands!!!
Everyone just were drawn to their whimsy and color and of course the lovely glitter. Ann Denise and I chatted away the whole day and we had so much fun. I was thrilled when she presented me with one of her wands to put in the giveaway basket! Make sure you check out her etsy shop and see all of her wonderful creations :)

Heidi of the etsy shop birdsofafeather makes these super cute crepe ruffled trims and packages them up all so pretty. I knew who Heidi was through Sadie lou and was so happy when I got to meet her in person. She is a sweetie pie! The giveaway basket will include two packages of her trim, pink and lavendar. Make sure you check out Heidis etsy shop for more pretties :)

The next goodie is from Iva of ivascreations. Her creations are works of art. The fairy land lamp shadow box that she taught at the ZNE workshop was amazing!!!! I am not kidding you! it was
beautiful! And whoever wins this giveaway will be so lucky to own one of her creations. It's a petite victorian tussie mussie, that I was so tempted to hide away for my very own!!!

The next contributor was claire of glitterandgrunge. Claire and her husband have a website that artists sell their handmade artwork on.
The basket will include a pkg. of glitterandgrunges little birdie cupcake picks. They are sooo cute and of course have lots of glitter on them :)
Claire and Aaron contributed more then art at the ZNE convention, their sweet spirits and enthusiasm made us all feel welcomed and brought pure joy to the weekend! Make sure you check out their website for more fun and talent.

And last but not least is the etsy shop Stafforshiregardendesigns.
Shari is an amazing artist and I felt an instant kinship with her the moment we met. Her creations are so wonderful and whoever wins this basket of giveaways will be the proud owner of one of her sweet charms.

So, there you have it!
I want to say a huge joyful thank you to all the artists who contributed to the giveaway and whoever wins is going to be doing the happy dance for days!!! lol.

I also included a few other goodies that I got from the ZNE convention and it will all come packaged up in this cute kittie tin.

So, if you'd like a chance to win this wonderful giveaway basket, just leave me a comment on my blog and in about a week I will pick the winner.

talk to you all soon,
