I'm almost at the 1000 follower mark and to celebrate I'm offering a giveaway. A dear friend of mine, Christina, has generously offered to give one of my lucky followers one of her handmade creations. Christina is amazingly talented with a sewing machine and her skills don't stop there. She's also a gifted photographer. Just visit her blog Pooh's Corner to see for yourself.
In addition to blogging, Christina also has an Etsy store, Emily Ann's Kloset, where you will find the most adorable handmade owl pillows and patchwork dresses.
Christina has a knack for finding the most precious fabrics, then mixes and matches them to create custom children's clothes and owl pillows. Here is just a sampling of her work.
I asked Christina what inspires her creativity and here is what she had to say.
I believe in children. I believe in whimsy. I believe in dreams. I believe in the deep down good in people. I believe in childhood innocence. I believe that special needs children were put here for a purpose and I was chosen to be a part of that wonderful adventure. I believe in bedtime stories. I believe in God. I believe tickles can solve problems. I believe there are magical connections between people. I believe color can make you happy. I believe in a beautiful world. And, I believe that like Harold and the Purple Crayon, you can make your life beautiful in different ways.
For this giveaway, Christina is offering one of her custom dresses. The lucky winner will choose from one of the following dresses.
So with Christina's wonderful spirit in mind, here are the rules for entering:
1. Become a follower of my blog, if not already, and leave a comment so I know you are.
2. Tell your loved ones you love them often. Life is fleeting.
3. Smile at a stranger. It will make their day.
4. Make time for fun. Everything else can wait.
5. Give God credit for everything good in your life. Ask Him for strength during the bad.
Good luck! The winner will be announced one week from today, Friday, March 23rd.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious weekend.
