A Celebration Giveaway!

 Time to Celebrate!!
We survived the physical labor of the Eagle Scout on to the paperwork!
It was a great experience and we were up there to see the plants are growing and thriving!
Then survived another Birthday.  Thank you all for the best wishes for another year!
But I am curious about how come I am getting older by not wiser??
It is sad when you have to have your teenagers explain so many things to you....
Today got a Boy Scout off to a week long camp.  This is a load of work and I worry while he is gone. 
 I am not sure how my mom survived 4 boys and 4 girls doing scouting, 4-H, and school. 
 I hope to make it through my two kids.

So to CELEBRATE I will be giving one of these Patriotic stars away to a follower of my blog.
You can read about the description HERE.
I have the best time painting these and they are truly one of my favorite things.  I think I already had a giveaway once before for one of these but when you like it what can you say!?!
Also with keeping Christmas in my heart all year this fun little snowman ornament will be given away to a winner.  I love the purple shades--for some reason they make me happy!
The Rules:
Be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post.
New followers always welcome.
Leave a way for me to contact you if you do not have a blog.
If you would like to share this giveaway I would appreciate it! 
Winners will be picked on June 23rd and announced on the 24th.
Might even be an extra little something patriotic related for another follower so you have to stay tuned.
Open to all USA and Canadian friends. 
Good Luck to all!
Thank you to all who follow my blog I truly appreciate you all.
