BRALEIGH and 10,000 PLUS VIEW GIVEAWAY

I don't know if you remember or not but I said if I could reach one person and influence them in anyway I would feel like my blog was a success.  To me anyway.   Well hang onto your hats my friends you will love this story of this sweet nine year old.  Yep I said nine year old who happens to be the granddaughter of my dear friend of 26 or so years. 

Braleigh has been looking at my blog with her grandmother and commented to her  about some of the art I have been creating.  We exchanged emails and discussed how I created some of them.  This sweet little young lady gathered things up around her grandmother's house and created these on her own.   I cannot wait to see where her art career will go as she gets older.  Now I have a tough job here keeping up and hoping influencing her for a while here.

A box came in the mail wishing me a happy birthday and I opened it to find these beautiful little surprises and one even had my initial on it.  



The bottle  that a nine year old created this all by her self.  I am so proud of you Braleigh. 
Tissue, buttons, charms and all were added by this young artist.  


What young sweet colors on the pillow here and with my initial on it.  Did you notice the bling also?  This sweet pillow will be proudly displayed in my art room so I can enjoy it everyday. 

Braleigh, you keep creating my dear from your heart and you will keep being a wonderful artist.   xoxoxo

Now I have to say that I have reached over 10,000 views now, now I don't know how many time Braleigh has peeked but but not the 10,000 times.  I want to have some sort of a give away to celebrate the views and all my followers.  I had not one idea that I would ever have this many views when I started the blog.  Give me the weekend to figure out what things, yes things, I will give a way.   To be eligible you must comment here and be a follower.    I have made it easy so you don't have to verify the comment anymore and have added an email thingy.  So off I go thinking what would y'all like?   I don't care if it is out of the country or not.  It will be some art for sure and whatever else I can think of and the deadline, oh I hate those things but the  deadline will be May 31, 2012.  How does that sound?  As soon as I figure out the prizes I will post another blog but all that have added their names here will be included.  Promise !!!!   

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.  xoxoxo

  7. I saw that you were celebrating a birthday, Annette. I hope you had a great day. Your experience with Braleigh kind of reminds me of my granddaughter who is four. She has the creative bug, for sure. We have crafting days which I'm hoping she will remember fondly when I'm gone.
