lookie-look


It's such a treat -- and certainly not a common one -- to win a giveaway, so you can imagine how delighted I was when I actually won Chelsea's Gratitude Giveaway! As Chelsea put it, she was having the giveaway "because I am in Gratitude for being here, right where I am now.

"I want to celebrate all the support, encouragement and community I feel in social media. I have made many friends online, many people have stopped by my blog (108,632 pageviews) to date, left comments, commissioned paintings, handmade cards and jewellery. Many have attended my exhibitions and artist open house events. For all of this and more I am in deep Gratitude. So I wanted to express my gratitude by doing a giveaway". How awesome is that?

Well, I won the gorgeous handpainted pendant above, which I just received yesterday, but there was more! Chelsea actually made and sent along two lovely sets of goodies for the kiddos as well! Just have a look at these:

Adorable handmade hair slides -- which my girls love to wear -- plus candy (it goes without saying they love that)! 

Aren't these pretty? So festive, and Great Gatsby-ish. I'm going to let the girls fight over who gets what when they get back from school.

It's so, so wonderful to receive gifts that reflect such care, thoughtfulness and attention to detail -- thank you so much Chelsea! Pop by Chelsea's artistic blog here :)

* Psst -- don't miss out on this giveaway, ending May 5th!
