friday giveaway hug!


i have received so many wonderful blessings since i began this blog......but without a doubt, my absolute sweetest blessing has been meeting so many wonderful bloggy friends!  it would be really difficult to try to put into words just how much i adore you.........how much i'm inspired by you.......and how much i truly appreciate all of your support and sweet comments every time you visit here.



there are many days where i have lots of doubts about what i'm doing (well, actually,  i usually have no idea what i'm doing!!), but i think that's where being able to turn to your blog-buddies for feedback helps so incredibly much!  and it's only because of your encouragement that i've felt brave enough to put my artwork "out there".
and for that......please consider yourself bear-hugged.....and i mean bear-hugged BIG!!

in celebration of YOU, my bloggy sweeties, i'm having a little giveaway.  i'd like to offer one of the prints in my etsy shop (your choice).....to say thank you for taking the time to stop by here and say hello......and for cheering your fellow bloggy sweeties on......and for leaving a smile.....and well, for all of those other things that are on my heart that there really are no words for.

xox

{giveaway details:  just leave a comment (one per person, please) on this post by 10:00 EST sunday, the 14th of august,  and i'll choose a name via random.org and announce it on monday!} 


{other:  please make sure you leave a link or an e-mail address where i can contact you.....
and if you're under 18 years of age, make sure you have permission to enter this giveaway!}


edited:  comments are now closed for the giveaway......thanks SO much for your support!!!
