Hey gang, Thanks for popping by!! I bet you heard there was a giveaway going on here in my little atelier. Well  you heard right!! But first things first! (yes you have to read my post! LOL)  I am over the moon excited to share with you what I have been working on lately.

A couple of weeks ago I got the bright idea to create a little zippered pouch using images of some of my favorite art pieces. Most of you know I love mixed media and assemblage and OOH how I love to create using collage images as well. My poor studio looks like a human paper shredder on speed has ram sacked it every time I get to creating!

My desk actually looked really good!! You should have seen the floor!

 I love using collage images in my work and I can tell you if you have never been over to Mischief Circus and checked out all the wonderful and talented collage artists and there kits you are totally missing it!! A couple of my all time faves are CrowABout StudioB, Tumble Fish Studios and ItKupilli!! They are a MUST see!!  Anyway, back to the subject at hand. I took some of my favorite pieces and created these super cute zippered pouches.

 Totally on a whim I decided to put them in my Etsy store. Well, I am humbled to say you know the rest of the story!! What a Blessing!! Now I am snipping and sewing my little heart out!!

So in honor of a successful whim, you guessed it I'm giving away a sample!

 I must admit there is a little flaw in this sweetie but I couldn't throw it away. What was an artist to do? After much debate and suggestions from all my SUPER DOOPER Artsy Fartsy sista's I decided to give it away!! So here is all you have to do... If you don't mind a little flaw and would like a chance to win this cutie then EXPRESS YOURSELF  in my comments section here on my page to enter the drawing. NOTE**** If you do not have an account and need to post as anonymous please leave your name in the comment so I will know who you are!!!  Then on Saturday April 18th I will have the random number generator draw a winner!! You have until 6pm Central time Saturday.

Well, that's all Folks! Thanks for popping in and I wish all of  YOU, my AMAZING precious friends a beautiful Friday!!
