Winter Giveaway Carnival!




I'm very proud of my little sister. She is a fabulous artist, and she's even illustrated a few books. She's had the opportunity to do the drawings for Music and the Spoken Word a few times, and now she's made prints of some of those pieces. Each set has a story that goes with it, and they are quite beautiful.


Well, now you have a chance to OWN one of her pieces. She’s made prints of some of her drawings and they are available for purchasing (at very reasonable prices, I might add).

mayflower

These are just a few of the ones she has to offer.



As part of the bloggy carnival hosted by Shannon, I'd like to give away a print for one lucky reader.


Here’s what you do: Click over to Amy’s blog site and see which of her prints you like the best. You can leave her a little love in the form of comments if you want, just to let her know you were there. Then come back here and leave a comment and let me know which of those lovely prints you would like. I will draw a winner on Friday, and that person will be able to have an 8 x 10 of their choice.

And while you’re at it, you might also want to check out her gorgeous portraits. She’s done these of my kids, and we just LOVE them. She can do portraits from photos, if you are interested in having beautiful pictures of your kids hanging on your walls (as opposed to your kids hanging all over you, which you probably already have, right?)This is one of my favorites:

So, click away, enter the contest, and then come back on Friday to see if you’ve won! And make sure to check the Bloggy Giveaways blog for all kinds of contests this week!



US entries, only, please.
