How about a Giveaway?

Happy Friday everyone! I thought since its been a whole week since I turned 39 and nothing too crazy has happened. Oh wait a minute! I did happen to burn dinner but only once and dinner wasn't on the table until 7:45, which meant we still needed to do showers, which meant bedtime wasn't until 9:30 and somewhere between all that homework was done. But hey, I did manage to get the kids out the door for school and both of their practices on time, with just a minimal amount of screaming on my part. Whew, glad this weeks almost over! So with all that said, why not do a giveaway, celebrating my kids are still breathing this week, lol! I have to say, I am so excited about this one!

I'd like to introduce you to Allison Strine who owns
Allison Strine Designs on Etsy!
and her blog allisonstrineblog

This is what she has to say about herself ~

I’m a wife, a daughter, a sister and a mommy, and mostly I’m one of the luckiest people on the face of this earth. It’s a bit ironic, considering the fact that for the first 30-odd (and they were odd) years of my life all I wanted was to be someone else, anyone else. I never thought of myself as having a single creative bone; instead I delivered pizzas, worked with horses and later became a television editor.

If you’d told me five years ago that I’d become an artist, and create collages that actually speak volumes to people, and sell my work to lots of women all over the world, well… you better believe I would have thought you were crazy! I’m learning so much about myself during this phase of my life; chiefly that I really do have my own voice, and that lots of people feel the same way I do, and that that I’m not the only one to go the whole day without putting on a bra!

Maybe it was the last comment about going the whole day without putting on a bra that spoke volumes to me and I just had to know who this fabulous person was and ask her if we could be friends!

Ok, maybe I've scared her off and she thinks I'm a stalker, I'm really not Allison! Anyway I think she is so talented and witty that I'm having a hard time deciding what to order for myself!

She has wonderful 8 x 10 prints, soldered charm necklaces and magnets that will have you in stitches!

I can't decide between this:

or this:

What do you think?

Now on to the Giveaway:
Ok everyone, Allison is offering a $35.00 gift certificate to be used in her Etsy shop! Wow, that means you could pick a pendant or a print and a magnet! Can you believe it?

This is all you have to do:

1. Become a follower of my blog or let me know you already do follow me!
(I better see your smiling face, lol)

2. Go to her Etsy store and let me know what caught your eye!

I'm loving this one, see what I mean too many to choose from!

Giveaway will go until Friday September 3rd so good luck!

I really could go with any number of her works as a favorite. One of them would have to be the pendant "Her Creative Slip is showing". Great stuff!

I'm a proud follower! Love her prints.
My favorite is the magnet with the cowboy boot(classy, sassy and a little bad assy)!

I am so happy that I found you today! I signed up to be a follower before I saw this post for your giveaway. I love her collages. It would be so hard to pick but I am partial the one she did with the big piece of candy corn. Anyway, nice to meet you and thanks for the chance!
