Who's that baby AND a give-away!!!!!

Check out the "faux Stella" - uhmmm, yeah - that would be Emsley proudly sitting in for the real Stella {just in case Stella (the real one) doesn't get her picture taken with it!} hehehe - okay, so I'm totally in love with that painting !!! Madly in love !!! I knew I should have gotten that bedding!

Okay - on with the good stuff!!!! A give-away!!! Here is the deal - I just spent the past 2 hours tallying up my total number of paintings!! Over the past 3 1/2 years I've officially done . . . .

. . . . Do you see that??? 237!!! Is that not just the CraZieSt thing you've heard?! And that is the total number of the ones that I've got a record for! I know there are some more that I never wrote down, didn't take pictures of, gave as gifts, donated to auctions, blah-blah, . . . Anyhoodle - here's how I see it {as luck so happens OR if you don't believe in luck ('cause I don't - I just like throwing that word around,) God's Mighty Intervention would see it} that I just so happen to have {at this very moment} 12 paintings ordered! Do the math - that would be 237 + 12 = 249!! So, I'm going to give away No. 250!!!

Did you hear me? I'm going to give away my 250th painting!!!!! And it is of your choice!! 'Cause we need to celebrate!! Whether it be a classic - funny bones - fancy pants - simpatico - essential - - - - you get to choose - BUT it must be in a size I offer - I'm not going to do a 24x48 for anybody {for free} tee-hee!!

Now, all you have to do is leave a comment - I don't even care what you say {as long as your nice!}!! Just a stinkin' comment people - how easy is that??? Even if you have won in the past, your family or a friend - anybody can enter!

So, you've got till Friday morning {7:30 central time,} August 22! Please, only one entry!!!

Now, leave a comment!

I can not even begin to describe how thrilled I would be to win one of your paintings. I am a mom to 4 under 7 (1 boy and 3 girls) and the youngest is 4 months old so I can relate to many of your stories. I don't know where you find the time to paint such beautiful paintings - congrats to such great success.

Beautiful! Honestly, If I won I would give it to my young nephew and niece who are having a baby (and no money)...but if I didn't I'd want it to go to Kelly...I read her blog and had a hard time getting pregnant...I think she's an inspiration and witness to trust in the Lord.

P.S. thanks for the paint colors for the table and chairs!

pve design said...

Oh, just the thought that you have give away that much love all while managing to raise 4 children in diapers. I think you deserve a gift! Someone surely must be watching you and smiling. I am a firm believer that it is better to give, than to receive, but in this case, I think I would happily be a "receiver!"
Does that baby girl come with? She is perfect!
Promise to give'em a good home!
