A Giveaway!!

Before  I  talk  about  my  giveaway--I  wanted  to show  you  something  else.   I  really  don't  even  have  time  to  breath  right  now,  but  I  did  take  the  time  to  make  my  peach  pie!

Isn't  this  pretty?   And  it  tastes  even  better  than  it  looks.   I  really  do  not  enjoy  baking  at  all,  which  I'm   very  grateful  for,  because  I  have  a  MAJOR  weakness   for  anything  that  is  freshly  baked.   But  I  must  admit--that  I  make  an  excellent  peach  pie,  and  not  too  bad  of  an  apple  one  either!  Okay,  enough  with  the  modesty--on  with  my  giveaway.

So  a  couple  of  months  ago,  I  blogged  about  these  pieces  that  I  made,  and  I  remarked  that  every time  I  took  my  Hippie  girl  with  me,  she  always  went  home  with  someone.  Well,  of  course  that's  that--I'll  never  be  able  to  sell  her  again--so  as  promised  I'm  giving  her  away--


She's  on  my  now  favorite  type  of  canvas--a  6 x6   wrapped  one  with  sides  that  are  over  2  inches  deep.
Each  side  is  like  a  whole  new  surface  that  you  can  make  art  on--I  love  these!

So  I'll  do  it  like  last  time--you  can  enter  your  name  3  times.  First,  just  leave  a  comment.  To  put  your  name  in  again,  just  be  a  follower  and  make  sure  to tell  me,  and  the  3rd  way  that  you  can  enter  your  name  is  to  mention  my  giveaway  on  your  blog,  and  again--make  sure   that  you  tell  me  if  you  do.    I'll  be  drawing  the  name  next   Thursday, Sept.  23--good  luck  everyone.

BTW--I  forgot  to  mention  in  my  other  giveaways  that  you  don't  have  to  have  a  blog  to  enter  either.  You  hear  that,  Susan?--leave  a  comment  and  you  could  win!  : )

peggy aplSEEDS said...

i put your giveaway in my sidebar, and i'm hoping my name gets picked!

Cara Mia Bella said...

You have been my blogging hero from the beginning (maybe because you were my first non-family follower). You have been my crafting hero because you are always creating great art and you take the time to share not only the finished piece, but also the process. Then, you still have time to do shows and participate in groups and giveaways. Now I see that you also have the time to make pies! You are amazing! I truly am inspired by you and ALL that you do!

Erika Ashley Folk Art said...

Love your artwork, and I'm a follower, I'll post this giveaway on my blog.

Sue J said...

Hi Diane, It's a good job I don't live near you or I would have to come and help you eat that pie. It's making my mouth water!
