Ok- you ladies are too nice!! Ya know what, I don't feel like I'm being too generous.  I honestly love to paint and sketch. I do it for fun and it makes me feel good. So I'm going to CHANGE the rules!! I'm not fishing for compliments but I do want to put a smile on someone's face for Christmas. I think I'm going to have many more winners!!  Three winners for the paintings.  The first one I post gets to choose their painting....The other two receive either or!  Also, I will be sending a few of you surprise packages!! So I'm hoping to have approximately 5 winners!!!! Sound good!!???
What better time than now to have a holiday giveaway!  I figured since I didn't have one for a while now is the perfect time.  Whether you've been naughty or nice this year, you'll be given a chance to win one of three of my hand painted projects!  I plan to be painting until a ripe old age so there is no reason for me to hang on to so many.......right?!??
So here's how it works:
1. Leave me a comment at the end of this post.
2. Follow  my blog.
3. Deadline: December 25, 2014 - 11:59 pm.
4. Person chosen by RANDOM.ORG December 26, 2014 and announced
here, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.
5. International Crafters Welcome!
6. Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel but that's optional since I don't post video's on a regular basis.....
7. The winner can message me their choice and address within two weeks after announcement!  If I don't hear from you I will choose another by RANDOM.ORG.
8. Easy, right?!!
I have a YouTube video explaining the details for each painting. I'm sorry the video does not do the painting coloring justice....The colors on each painting (in person) are vibrant!
In order from top photo left to right

Good luck to everyone who enters! Have a Merry Christmas!
Happy Holiday's and PEACE on Earth!
