Who doesn't Love a Giveaway? Or Two?
I know I do!
Up for grabs is an autographed copy of the January/February issue of Cloth Paper Scissors which features my article, "How To Fake It" which highlights a technique that I love to create a faux encaustic look with a variety of mediums taken from my class "Fearless Faux Encaustics" over at Creative Workshops. Not only am I offering the magazine, but you will get the class itself which is an open ended class offering more than 15 videos and about 3 hours of instruction that you can view 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
How cool is that?!!
How to enter the giveaway? Simply enter a comment on this post and tell me one of your favorite, 'make do' or 'faking' it tip. Oh..and to sweeten the pot, if you share this post on your blog/website/facebook/twitter, come back a second time and tell me you've done that and you'll get a second entry!! whoohoo!
I'll pick the winner on February 14th....because as some as you may know, I love hearts, love Valentine's Day, and I love spreading the goodness around especially on a day that is all about love, kindness and friendship.
So while I don't have a Valentine this year...or last...lol...YOU can be my Valentine by joining along in this giveaway!
(if you've already purchased this class you can use the voucher to giveaway to another person or opt to pick one of my other 3 classes to enjoy for yourself :)
While you are in the neighborhood, I wanted to feature some of the new items listed in my Etsy shop this week. Of course they are SWEET and mostly HeART related but not so Valentine'y' that you'd have to put up after the 14th...in fact these little gems can be featured all year long to remind you that
should be all cherished and top of mind all year long.
In the end, that's all that matters.

Despite the obstacles I've faced personally over the last month....I've created some pieces lately that
are really about what I believe in and cherish and that there is someone out there for everyone...sometimes it just takes patience while you wait for the stars to align and for the pieces to fall into place.

One thing I have found though while searching....there's a lot of love that you can surround yourself with in many shapes and forms...you just have to be open to it.
You must love yourself first though before you can be true and love others.
