Beginning 2012 With a Giveaway!

I'm feeling very blessed this crisp, cool, January first morning, and feeling the need to give a little something back to the collectors and friends who've given me so much this past year.

Your support and encouragement have meant the world to me, and while I wish I could send a little something to each of you, I figure the least I can do is offer a giveaway - or three. ;)

Yep, three. All you have to do is leave a New Year's comment here, and you'll be entered to win your choice of any hand painted welcome sign, or any print in my Etsy shop. I'll draw three names next Saturday evening and notify the winners sometime on Sunday.

There's no requirement to share this, or re-post, or tweet, or whatever - but I so appreciate it if you do!

Wishing you magic, joy, and all good things in 2012!

♥ Carolee
