Time for Some Giving Back...

 A short and sweet post to end of a week of craziness. 
It always get's a little nuts before a show.The kitchen table is full of paper, 
the counter's are full of glass pieces. The dining room table is loaded with more paper, 
glass and the containers used to transport everything.

 that I am showing at this weekend looks like a fabulous way to start Valentines Day.
"Handy Husband" is joining me, and I understand we receive 
2 wine glasses when we check in.
"h a p p y   d a y"  it will be-  sales or not!

Above, is the plate that I donated, for the auction to benefit Foodshare.
I always love to give an auction item. I have a "huge soft spot" 
for food programs, so this one is a true "heartfelt" donation.

Since it was my 2 year anniversary on etsy this past week,
I was thinking it was time for a giveaway. The friendships, the support, 
and the kindness of everyone I've been connected with on this artful journey 
is beyond words~ 
so a "grateful giveaway" is in order.

I've decided to offer 2 of my "Heartsie's" as a "thank-you" 
for friendship and support.
That means 2 winners! 

To enter the "grateful giveaway" choose from the list below:

1- leave a comment on this blog page. (1 entry)
2- become a follower of this blog. (1 entry)
3- post one of my blog buttons on your blog. (1 entry)
4- tell me if you are a coffee or tea drinker. (1 entry)

Feel free to enter as many as you like. If you already follow or have a button on your blog,
just let me know in your comments. I'll make sure you have the proper entry's. 
The winner will be chosen on Valentine's Day. 
I'll post the winner's here and get mailing addresses then.
Since I don't have any connections with "the accounting firm for the Academy Awards", 
I'll use the pick from the bowl technique~ sound good?

Have fun! Looking forward to giving back!

1 happy winner will receive some love...

1 happy winner will receive some joy...
