A contest and a FREEBIE!

Hey everyone!

I hope this post finds you well and you are getting some lovely Spring weather wherever you may be!
I've been working on products for my upcoming shows this week, the family just started Spring Break and the weather is getting nicer every day!

Last weekend we spent our Saturday morning doing a beach sweep. We took our buckets and our work gloves and headed to Belmar to pick up garbage on the beach. My son couldn't go with us this time because of work but my daughter enjoyed her first time and now has a good appreciation of why we don't leave our garbage on the beach :(

After we got home I was able to spend a bit of time in the studio painting! A good day! Balance is something I always strive for in my life as the life of an artist doesn't usually the fit typical 9-5 lifestyle. You squeeze in artistic time whenever and wherever you can!

If you haven't been to my Facebook page lately then head on over after this! (  I have a contest going on! I’ll be giving away a custom 8x10 portrait of a Faerie in your likeness or a portrait of your companion animal! The winner will be chosen on Wednesday, May 15th. To enter you just Like, Comment AND Share any photo I post on my FB page. Every time you do these three things you will be entered! me reach 800 sales in my Etsy shoppe!!! Everyone who buys something from my Etsy shoppe during this time (April 16th-May 15th) will receive a FREE 5x7 print of your choice (any illustration in my shop) - just leave me a note in checkout as to which one you want.

A listed a new product this week too! "Happy Thoughts" Boxes! These adorable boxes come with a little stack of paper for writing down things you are grateful for or happy memories, a quartz crystal for focusing on the positive in your life, a tiny vintage vial containing faerie dust and some lovely dried flowers. Such a great gift for a friend or yourself. Someone even mentioned what a sweet housewarming gift this would be!

Along with working on art projects and at my part-time job we have also started getting busy with my daughter's lacrosse season. We have been a hockey family for so long that we are still getting used to lacrosse and learning the sport. This is my daughter and a couple of her teammates at a recent lacrosse tournament. They won the tournament but the best part for them was the Kona ice!

My two crazy kids after another Lacrosse game!

And last but not least here is the FREE coloring printable I promised everyone! This is my first one and I hope you like it! Print this out and go to town with your pencils, crayons or pens.
