*i'm so thankful* giveaway

Yay!!!! Finally, after weeks and weeks...no, make that months and months...of thinking and talking about it, I have a little ETSY shop up and running!!!!

AND, in celebration of its "Grand Opening" I've decided it's time for a giveaway!!!!

To participate all you have to do is leave your name in the comment section of this post, along with something you are thankful for (it is Thanksgiving here in the US after all). On Friday, November 23, I will draw a name at random and send you some surprise goodies from my shop! No purchase is necessary, though it is a good time to start thinking about holiday presents...isn't it? :)

And let me begin the thankfulness chain by letting you know just how much I appreciate you, my visitors and friends. Your encouragement fuels my creativity in ways I can never describe.

Hi! I love your blog and your Etsy shop but I thought I had missed your giveaway then I notice today is Sunday the 18th so I figured you meant to say next Friday the 23rd maybe? :) Hope so!

Besides my family I'm also thankful for the internet because it gives me opportunity to see so much beautiful art from so many creative people around the world! It has made all the difference during this last year.

I'm thankful for all the little things - like fallen autumn leaves and sandcastles, that maybe don't make a huge impact on our everyday lives, but together they seem to make life feel complete ;)

I am thankful for the amount of health that I *do* manage to have despite the MS and the amount that I *still* manage to accomplish despite those things I can no longer do. Also for my hubby and cats that keep me sane and safe!

Hey Suzanne,
I checked out your shop and love the stuff.

Today I am most thankful for this group. Each day I am inspired by all of you.

In the past I've tried to start drawing and have given up. With out the inspiration and encouragement I've received I'm not sure if I would have kept drawing as long as i have. It is a gift I am so thankful for.

Congrats Suzanne! What a great idea for a giveaway! Well, I am grateful for a zillion things ... for friends that have helped me through some difficult times, for my eyesight so I view beautiful artwork, and for having the means to travel and meet new people and see new things.

Stephen said...

I am thankful for people who use their talents, try to achieve things, keep a positive attitude and are happy, and are loving and appreciative of others. These people are an inspiration and keep me on track to try to be that way too.

Thank you for the opportunity for a give away, I dont think I am too late. I am thankful that after being diagnosed with a hole in the retina I still have the sight in one eye and enough in the other to be able to still do my sewing and sketching.The thought that I could have been blind is unimaginable.

andrea joseph's sketchblog said...

I'm thankful for discovering drawing blogs which, in turn, inspired me to start my own and to start drawing again. Gosh, I can't imagine how different my life would be, right now, without that.

And, I've just visited your Etsy shop - how fabulous.I will be placing an order...as soon as I've been paid!

Sally said...

Hey Suz! I thought I would let you know that I am thankful for YOU!!! I hope I win the give-a-way:)
