A Happy Holiday Giveaway!!!

Well...I've gone and done it now, haven't I? This late night project has cost me all my previous posts....darn it!!!

Okay...I'll just have to start over again ....Fresh starts can be good, right? I'm ready and I am starting out with a new banner that I created in Photoshop...what do you think?

Next on my list will be to get back in there and add all my friends blog addresses. Please let me know you're out there and I'll happily add your blog addy to my list, ok?

I think I will also start out with a Holiday giveaway! What do you think of that?

This handsome fella is one of my early cloth and clay creations...He was featured in Create and Decorate Magazine and has such a sweet endearing face and message. He reminds us all to take time to chase the flakes. It's so easy to get caught up in the holiday hustle and bustle. Remember to have fun...hug your hubby, play games, snuggle with the kiddos, smile at your neighbors! :-)

Okay for the rules ...their very simple. Leave a comment on my blog and your get one entry. Post my Giveaway Button on your blog or website with a link back to my giveaway (and be sure to let me know, ok?) and you'll get 2 entries!!

I will collect all the entries and drop them into my Big Ole' Santa Hat and draw the winning name on the morning of December 1, 2008. Some lucky winner will have this handsome fella flying home to them just in time for the Holidays. :-)

It's time to get busy in the studio so I'll sign off for now! I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon...Hugs--Susan
