200th Post Giveaway!

This  is  my  200th  post--gee--who  would  have known  that  I  had  this  much  to  say....but  when  it  comes  to  art,  you  can't  shut  me  up.   So,  what  else  but  have  a  giveaway.   And  I  decided  to  give  one  of  my  boxes  away!

This  is  an  image  of  one  of  my  original  painted  faces  on  the  top,  and  the  rest  of  the  box  has  assorted  papers,  lace  and  embellishments  added  on.  It's  a  great  size  too--to  hold  anything  you  choose.

So.....this  time  you  can  enter  5  times  to  win.   For  one  chance,  all  you  have  to  do  is  leave  a  comment,  and  for  another  chance  tell  me  if  you're  a  follower,  and  another  way--you  can  blog  about  it--just  be  sure  to  tell  me  if  you  do.    And....since  I  now  have  a  Facebook  page,  if  you're   a  fan  or  become  a  fan--that  would  be  a   chance  also,  plus...if  you  post  about  it  on  Facebook   that  would  be  yet  another  chance!  So...you  have  lots  of  ways  to  enter  your  name--up  to  5  times!!   Just  don't  forget  to  tell  me  if  you  do  any  of  these  things--very  important!

And  I  also  want  to  update  you  on  the  rapidly  growing  finch  babies.   I  took  this  photo  on  Monday--


and  yesterday...



It's  amazing  how  fast  they  grow,  and I'm  happy  to  say  that  all  5  of  them  are  doing  very  well.  I  think  it  won't  be  long  till  the  oldest  leaves  the  nest---I'm  a  little  sad  about  that   :- (

So  don't  forget  about  my  giveaway.  I'll  pick  the  winner  next  Friday--the  29th--good   luck  everyone!
