First of all I would like to thank you for visiting and participating in the giveaways this year. Last year, when I had this crazy idea, I never thought it would turn into something like this. It was much bigger than I ever thought and it brought a little bit of happiness into some very dark days for so many of us. It also connected me to many new moms who were on my same path. This year I am in a much better place. Oh I still miss my Sophia & Ellie with all my heart, but things are different; easier somehow. I know those of you who are new to this journey may not believe that things will ever be easier or that you will ever feel better, but you will. I still have my moments where the pain is so intense, but I am still better. Better emotionally, but just better in general for having these sweet, beautiful babies in my life. I really do feel so lucky to be their mommy.
Okay, okay enough with my babbling! I know what you all came for…
The FIRST day of giveaways! Today there will be two places to visit and enter to win something special. Go on over and visit Florence’s mommy, Jeanette, at Lazy Seamstress and look at all the lovely things she makes! Wow, I wish I could be her for just one day…she is sooo incredibly talented.
Your second stop is right here…my blog. I’m not giving away anything from my shop today…you will have to check back later for that. I have something very exciting…I don’t even really want to tell you what it is! Maybe I’ll just keep it for myself! Okay, well I can’t do that because its really not mine to keep.
I ran across a wonderful site one day, Simply Silhouettes. I was looking around at all their wonderful items and saw a link to My First Silhouette, ultrasound art. These wonderful people turn ultrasound pictures into beautiful works of art. Need I say anymore? How amazing is this?!?!? A way to capture a true picture of my girls. Don’t get me wrong, I ADORE their sketch, but to have a real picture would be amazing!!!
Okay..back to the giveaway! I’m really not one who likes to ask people for things, but I thought, “What do I have to lose?” I contacted the company and they so generously agreed to donate an 8x10 gallery wrapped canvas for this giveaway! (Thank you Angela!!!) Isn’t that amazing? (okay I have used amazing way too many times in this post!) Here are some examples of what they do:
See…I told you they are AMAZING!!! Go on over and check out their lovely sites. But, before you do, leave a comment here and tell me how wonderful this artwork is…I will randomly choose a winner soon, so hurry and see if you can think of another adjective besides mine to describe these pieces!
Don’t forget to check back here tomorrow to see where to go for the next giveaway!!
