A Thank You Giveaway...

Two years ago, on the 1st of May,  I submitted my first blog post.
I really wasn't sure where I was going with my blog, or if I would even have any readers, but 
with so much inspiration and eye candy out there in blogland, I wanted to play along.



One of the things I discovered through blogging is my love for photography.
I find it easier to share with photos rather than words.




Blogging has also given me the opportunity to meet other bloggers/artists from all over the world, by sharing inspiring ideas and words through the love of art. 
That my friends, is something I never really expected to happen, and I am so grateful for! 


Over the past two years, your comments and emails have given me so much encouragement and inspiration that I just want to say
 THANK YOU!


I started making these little lavender pillow sachets out of linen and embroidered a flower on them. 
Simple, and fun to make. 
If you are interested I would like to make one of these for you along with a few other "goodies" as a way of showing my gratitude.


I know it's not a fancy gift with all the bells and whistles,  and so many of you out there create such beautiful things of your own,  but I would just like to give something from the heart, from me to you.

Leave a comment on this post if you would like to be a part of the drawing. 
I will draw a name from those that are interested and post that special someone's name on 
Sunday, May 15th.

Let me know if you post about it, or leave a link on your side bar, and I will enter your name twice. 

Thank you and hugs to all of you...
you are very special to me! 

Becca

Congratulations on a year! I love these lavender sachets and your shots of lavender with the soap are beautiful, here's to another year.

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

You have created a wonderful blog and post the most beautiful things. Kind of a place to enjoy that cup of coffee and relax, while enjoying a variety of beauty .
Your stitching is so pretty on your sachets. And it's the little things that mean so much.

Do you grow your own Lavender? I try, it's a favorite, but weather sometimes don't let it grow.

I'm have computer problems..my dashboard is gone so missing lots.
Enjoy the Mothers Day weekend and thanks for the fun.

I am really enjoying your artwork and blog. The watercolour pencils are very expensive. Such lovely colours though, I have some but dont like those I have, do you think they are worth the money. I seem to always put a lot of money into supplies and do not get much done these days. Anyway, had to say I am still plodding my way through (back) through the blog and really enjoying it.
