Time to Celebrate!!

WOW, already toward the end of the month of January-amazing how time seems to slip away from me.
Well the reasons to celebrate:
  1. Over 200 followers!  Need to pay more attention...I blame teenagers.
  2. Have been featured on Screaming Sardine and Baskets by Rose.  Please stop by and read a bit more about my art.  Tracy at the Screaming Sardine has some fun questions that she asks!
  3. Started a Facebook page-not sure what I am doing there yet!  Click on the link at my side bar.
  4. It finally is snowing here!!  We need the moister come summer for our garden.  It really has been an odd year weather wise.  (Utah is the second driest state in the nation).
So on that note I am having a give away for the picture above.   Yes, I know it is closer to Valentine's and St. Pat's but who doesn't love a Snowman.  We have yet to have winter here so I am not so tired of it  yet.  Sorry to those who are longingly looking towards spring.  This picture is based on a Renee Mullin's pattern and measures 9x9 and has been painted on black screen with acrylic paint.  The snowflakes are metal and have been painted white with glittered applied.  It has been sealed and comes ready to hang.

RULES for this giveaway:
  1. Be a follower of this blog and new folks are always welcome!
  2. Must live in the USA or Canada-postal rates went up today. 
  3. Please click the link to "like" my Facebook page on my side bar.  It should take you right to my business page because my profile page is so boring I don't want you to have to suffer through that.
  4. Please post this give away to your sidebar and or actually blog about my giveaway.
  5. Please leave your comments on this post.
You may do as many of these as you would like and just let me know what you did.  This give away will end February 2, 2012.  As usual I will draw a name out of a hat because I have kids that think that is awesome!
Thank you to all of my great blog friends and hopefully many more to meet.
Good Luck!
