100th Post GIVEAWAY!!

Yeah!!! I made it to 100 posts!! You regulars know I'm not a daily blogger, so it's taken awhile to get here! ... And... how do I celebrate every little occasion around here??

2. Second winner receives choice of one art print from my Etsy shop(these are three of many to choose from - 5x7 or 8x10)
3. Third winner receives a FRAMED canvas art print from DaySpring.com!! Yes! Hot off the press!! DaySpring is carrying 5 of my retro paintings on canvas and framed!:It's a matte canvas print in a black vintage-look frame ~21" x 25." Here are some of them next to the originals in my studio!

Something good that happened to me this week: ohhhh the possibilities!
It WASN'T being up from 2-5 with a teething baby, or rinsing out pooed in underwear, or prying fighting kids off of eachother for the billionth time since holidays started.
BUT it could have been when my husband came home and cleaned the kitchen while I read a book... that was pretty fan-stinking-tabulous!!!
Or when I found my secret stash of forgotten candy to eat whils reading a juicy book ;)
:D

Rosalynn said...

Let's see, something good that happened this week-- being able to sit in our backyard in the evening and watch the kids play ball. I love summer!

The Smith Family said...

K, so something good that happened to me this week.
*** Please don't judge***

My almost 2 year old has MASTERED 3 VERY important life skills (well for OUR house hold anyway) So here are my exciting things... in sequence of importance.

1. She has mastered the Go-gurt. She FINALLY understands the concept of squeeze, and enjoy... instead of squeeze and destroy..(my kitchen, and her clothes, that is)

2. She can drink from a "big girl" cup "all-by-a-self" (as she says).. with only spilling about an eighth of the contents on her lap. (she has twin 3 year old sisters, and HATES that she still has a sippy cup)lol.

And last... but by NO means least... ready!...

3. She has CONQUERED the McDonald's PLAY PLACE slide!!!! WOOT WOOT! I can now SIT and enjoy the left over stale fries and cold nuggets, without having to wedge myself up into that awful contraption to rescue my baby!

THIS has been an FANTASTIC week! I'm only sad that our Daddy has had to miss out. He is currently working hard in another state, while I sell our home here in Utah. :( ... So I would LOVE some new fun, inspiring art for our new home, that we will eventually be moving into.

XXX Crossing my fingers XXX

Shelley Smith
PS. Love your work, truly amazing colors and creativity!

Mamasteff said...

something good that happened to me this past week: I FINALLY painted the hallway after living here for 3 years! It feels so good and one of your pieces would look great in there!

Happy 100!

Meghan said...

The good thing happens to me everyday. When my soon to be 3yo sees me there to pick him up from daycare, he runs & throws himself against my legs, big smile on his face as he screams "Moooooommmmmeeeee!"

I love it!

Meghan said...

I have also been a follower for some time now.

Sue Nardino said...

I've been watching your blog for quite awhile now and always LOVE your crafty decorations (I'm a crafter myself!). So I definitely want to enter this contest! As far as something good that's happened this week-- well, as I've been doing my quiet time I've been noticing that I've let other things in my life distract me from my time w/ the Lord.. then I've kind of blamed my kids for either waking up too early or going to bed too late. But then I really opened my eyes to what I do-- and I can easily spend 5 hrs in front of the tv at night! So I committed to watching less tv and reading more. And suprise! I finished two books already and am midway through Pilgrim's Progress. Plus I'm sleeping better and am more alert in the morning. Yeehaw! So that's all from NJ! email: SManicotti1@aol.com

~hon~ said...

Jeanne,

It's great to be back here. I am certainly one of your biggest fans. I have been subscribed to DaySpring for quite some time now and when I saw your art being sold there, if I'm not mistaken that was last week, I was surprised. I'm quite happy that I am your friend. I'm like, "Oh my most creative friend!" I have been meaning to email you when I got that email but got so busy. BTW, one question, do you know how to make freeze dried rose petals?

I hope to win! hehehe! This would be a wonderful gift for my fiance on our 15th monthsary on the 25th. Whoever wins, that person deserves it!

I just totally admire you. Really. You are one of the most creative persons I know.

GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY! P.U.S.H.

iLoveYouSoMuch, my darling co-heiress in CHRIST!

Something good that happened to me this past week...watching my son Ben (he's 1) push a laundry basket around and puts misc. toys into it like he was shopping. Priceless. :)

eve said...

Awesome and congratulations! My husband filled up the soap dispenser and took out the trash without me even asking him to!

Southern Gal said...

Cleaning out clutter and actually seeing the floor in a room that has been hidden under boxes from my daughter's wedding that was in May.

And having my youngest son, 7, give a documentary on film of how he loves his new room and bed. Priceless.

My best moment this week: I was at the dentist with a terrible pain. (I´m so frightened for dentists!). While waiting I read a book from Max Lucado ("Cappucino met Max" is the Dutch title). He wrote about how big the universe is. The God who made this universe is with you, he wrote, pointing to the bibleverse "I can do all things through Him who gives me strenght". I survived dentist and left happily (and without pain). Thank God for a little encouragement on the right time!

jeanne @ Inspiring Ideas said...

I have been loving everyone's fun "good things" stories!! So neat to see that some are really BIG things and some are just everyday sweetness!

Response: freeze dried rose petals? Hmm, I've dried roses in silica gel, which makes them very brittle, but never freezing. Interesting. I'll have to look into it!! :-)
