As promised....this is the first of a series of giveaways. I am kicking it off with a crafter's dream of papers, embellishments, ribbons, lace, rhinestones, buttons, flowers, tags, envelopes, feathers, and a pink sparkly crown! There are a few other things not pictured that can be used in mixed media and home crafting.

Ok, here are the rules...Post a comment on my blog about what you are looking forward to this summer. This will get you one chance. Then if you tell another person about my giveaway, and leave me their name in your post, when they post on my blog, you will get another chance. (So if you tell five freinds and they all post then you get five chances plus one for your post.)

This drawing will end on Monday, June 22, 2009 at 12:00 pm (noon) Pacific Standard Time.

Here are some pictures of some of the goodies you will win.

Becs, looks like I get to be lucky poster #1! I am looking forward to reading novels, painting more and more time in my studio! Homeschooling is almost done for the year and next year is already decided, so a sweet summer of freedom awaits!

This summer I hope to spend lots of time with my newest grand daughter who will be born in August to my youngest daughter (she is 31 & it will be her first) and figuring out what do learn to make in a new medium : ) I am going to post your Give Away on my blog tomorrow. My friend Mary at will come to visit too.

Hi Becs! I'm looking forward to watching my garden grow....when everything is ripe and ready for picking then it will be time to make my Italian pasta sauce! I freeze it and have it all winter long, it tastes so much better than bottled...hugs, Jennifer : )

Hi Becs, I love the new design of your blog. I plan to do some painting this summer as I prepare for my fall craft shows.I also plan to do some new watercolor and oil paintings. In addition, I want to make some new tags for my craft shows. Thus I would love to win your bag of goodies to help me to this. Thanks a bunch and have a great day.

I guess I have an altogether different wish for my summer. I have been ill for about a year with Chronic Epstein Barr Virus and would love to feel better this summer. I have learned, however, that regardless of the circumstances, I can and do choose to live each day with as much meaning as possible.

What a great giveaway Becs!

I'm looking forward to sitting in the shade of our Greek holiday villa creating artwork. I'm not much of a sun lover and while my hubby is becoming a bronzed god, I will be doing what I love most - relaxing, crafting or reading!

Also, when we get home, he has a special birthday that ends in "0" coming up and so we shall be celebrating that. Fingers crossed for the draw!

Thankyou for the chance to win this great give away.
I am trying to stay cool this summer, swim a lot, hunker down in my studio where there is a fan, and read and dream a lot.

Hey Becs! So glad I stopped by because I would love to be entered in your giveaway! This summer, I am looking forward to getting my house more organized and getting all of the excess out. Of course, pool time with my girls and also finishing up on some swaps and just doing my own thing with my art for a bit. I will mention your giveaway on my blog now. Hope you are having a great day!
